I love it!...feels good...I have no issues buffing in contour and blush overtop this powder, in fact I am able to get a more seamless look when blended....I don't think this combo would work for oily or combination skin, best for dryer skin.
What it is:
A weightless translucent loose powder to set and perfect for a flawless, locked-in finish.

What it does:
Get ready for the latest breakthrough. Lock-It Setting Powder is not your grandma’s loose powder. Kat Von D’s groundbreaking technology reduces the weight by 45 percent compared to the leading setting powder*, so you get a better finish with no chalkiness, no flashback, and no added texture.

This silky, non-drying powder is designed to softly diffuse pores for a velvety-matte, selfie-ready finish. The universal translucent shade is truly undetectable on all skin tones (even in photos), so everyone can lock down and mattify their makeup without a trace.

For flawless all-over setting, apply with the Lock-It Setting Powder Brush (sold separately). To bake or set under-eye concealer, use the Lock-It Precision Powder Brush (sold separately).

*Based on US sales data.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
The jar's sifter holes are arranged in the shape of a star, inspired by Kat's signature star tattoos. Lock-It Setting Powder is completely free of animal-derived ingredients.
