As a goodie from my Kat Von D Masterclass
I attended a few days ago, Erik Soto personally matched the perfect shade of the lock-it concealer crème for me. At first, the shade that he recommended (Medium 25) for me, was a bit too light, which I realized after trying on later, and so I went back to him to replace it. He then picked out the shade M29 Neutral for me which I thought was the perfect shade. Kat Von D comes in 3 different tones, namely cool (pink, red or bluish undertones), warm (yellow, peachy, golden undertones), & neutral (a mix of warm and cool undertones). I think it’s extremely important to first figure out your tone and what suits you best before you invest in base makeup.

In my opinion,
Concealing is one of the most important steps for me while doing my makeup. I’m generally very skeptical about trying out new products on my skin especially when it comes to base makeup like, foundation, concealer, etc. However, I gave the lock-it concealer crème a shot and I personally really like it, it’s just the right amount of creamy and super easy to apply. The best part about this concealer is that you don’t need to use a corrector before applying the concealer crème, this concealer corrects discoloration and brightens the under eye area as well. You could either apply the concealer directly onto your skin with the applicator or you could apply it on the back of your hand. If you’re not too good at blending then I’d suggest you apply the concealer on the back of your hand and then onto your skin with your finger tip or a concealer brush that way it’s easier, less messy and more precise.
The packaging & quantity
of this product is quite sufficient. The lock-it concealer comes comes in a nice circular bottle, which is a little heavy but so professional and sleek looking. The quantity is great, I was actually quite surprised when I was opening the concealer. I think this concealer will easily last a good amount of time!
