Today I will be reviewing the Kat Von D Lock It Creme Concealer. I purchased this last month when Debenhams launched the Kat Von D range, I purposely waited to do a review on this as I wanted to use it properly before giving a full review also trying it out with different foundations and setting powders/sprays!
I purchased this without matching my shade or anything, I just went on google and found swatches and tried to figure which one matched and I ended up purchasing the shade ‘Medium 17 (warm)’ this is best for light/medium skin with yellow undertones. It is very slightly lighter than I thought it would be, looking at the name I would of expected it to be darker, however it is right for me as I go for concealers a shade or two lighter. I have done a comparison post featuring this concealer Here!
First thing I want to talk about is the packaging, it’s actually quite fatter than I thought it would be, its got the KVD logo on the applicator, the packaging resembles the rest of the
KVD range that punk rock theme when looking sat the tube the colour looked waaay to light for me, but once I swatched it and used it I found it was the right match!
When opening the concealer I noticed the lid pushes up once it is unscrewed which I love about all of the KVD products. The applicator is shaped like a triangle which makes application under the eye easier
When applying concealer I usually apply it in a upside down triangle under both eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my forehead and a little on my chin, I then blend it with my fingers under my eye first then go in with the Real Techniques sponge to go under my eyes to give it a more flawless finish and then the rest of my face.
I applied this concealer as I normally do, and I found that I had applied too much! With this concealer you will need a small amount and it really does go a LONG way, the consistency is quite thick so when blending it doesn’t move too much.
This concealer really does live up to its name! Once it is set it stays in place all day! The only thing I would say is I found it hard to find a setting powder that works with this concealer. I first used this with my usual Maybelline Matte Maker setting powder and found that it just broke under my eyes so you could see the darker skin underneath! I then tried setting it with the Laura Mercier setting powder and it did the same, however I find when I bake using the Laura Mercier powder the concealer didn’t break, so for me it works best with A LOT of powder! another thing I noticed that helped was spraying setting spray on the real techniques sponge before blending the concealer.
This concealer does last up to 8 hours (this is how long I usually have my makeup on for).
I have lines under my eyes boo! I never noticed how bad they were till I used this concealer a couple of hours after applying this concealer I notice it sits in to them lines under my eye, I usually just blend it back in with my finger. this is the only downside to this concealer other, I have noticed the creasing does decrease if I bake my under eyes, but then it all just looks a little crazy for an everyday look. (I naturally have those lines under my eyes, so if you don’t have any lines your safe to use it!!
This concealer costs £20 and currently ONLY Debenhams stock it, I do think this is quite expensive for a concealer but I also think its a great concealer! So it would be worth it!
Rate this product: 8/10, this is due to the fact that I have to work with it quite a bit!
Would I recommend this product: YES! its a good concealer if you don’t have such defined lines under your eyes!
Would I repurchase this product: No, its not worth it FOR ME.
Has anyone else used this concealer? or any other KVD product!? I will be reviewing the Kat Von D Lock it Foundation & Primer soon!! Look out for it!
