Lock-It Hydrating Primer

It's an okay primer, I just don't like the texture it leaves. Although it feels fine and even going on skin it feels rather sticky and uncomfortable on my skin once it has been applied and starts to set. It also didn't help the look of the KVD foundations on my skin.

Yes and No

Super hydrating for my face and so good at keeping makeup on, but only for my dry areas, I find it makes my t-zone super oily which I don't usually have an issue with. But I just use a mattifying primer in those areas and I'm good to go!

Kat Von D Lock-It Hydrating Primer

Kat Von D is a good brand, but for this primer is too matt even on my oily combination skin. I combine this primer using a oilier or more dewy foundation. For our hot weather this primer will be good for those very very oily skin.

impressive

Ordered this on a whim as my usual set of foundation + primer was outta stock. I am impressed. Very small amount of primer used for the entire face and indeed helps make up to stay all day. Foundation offers a good coverage and yet looks almost like second skin.

Best primer

It feels like a nice water-based moisturiser on your skin which gets quickly absorbed and doesn't leave a sticky residue. It works super well on my dry skin and keeps my face from getting oily. However one thing I don't quite like about it is the weird smell...

Not that great for super oily skin

I have a generally oily face and the humidity in Singapore doesn't help with my makeup to stay on. I've read great reviews about this primer. Unfortunately it did not work too well for me particularly around my T-zone. Trust me I have powdered and all and it still doesn't work. It moved my foundation around like crazy especially around my nose. It works well on the other parts of my face but definitely not on my T-zone. It would probably work really great on dry skin as it doesn't feel drying at all.

milky liquid application

I love that this is a milky base rather than a cream. Goes on nicely with no offensive smell. However, I haven't found using this makes very much difference to the staying power of my Kat von d foundation. I've also tried it with Clinique foundations and same again. Read the "how to" section at the bottom for hints on application-mixing with the foundation gives a dewy appearance to the lock it foundation range which is a great tip! contains nice skin softening ingredients Mekong it ideal for drier skin types!

Lightweight

I like that this primer is super light weight and having it on feels like having nothing on. It has a slight moisturising effect. However, I find that it is unable to cover pores as well as a thicker primers, which can be a double edged sword. I use this on a daily basis.

On the fence about this one..

I am a huge fan of the KVD tattoo liner and have heard rave reviews on the foundation. Decided to give this a try during a recent sale but I don't really know how to feel about it. The consistency is more moisturizer based and is sort of sticky but it dries up after application. In my honest opinion, I can't really see my pores being smoothed out by this as compared to other primers...
