The powder itself is very fine and delicate. The product feels silky smooth when applied.
This powder has no particular smell.
If you are using the setting powder on one area of the face, such as to set under-eye concealer, simply apply the powder using a brush on the desired area and wait a couple of minutes. After that, brush off any remaining powder.
To set full-face makeup, use a bigger brush and apply a generous amount of the powder onto the face. Wait for a few minutes and then brush-off any excess powder.
The “Lock-It Setting Powder” by Kat Von D is very finely milled which makes it completely weightless when applied on the face. The powder performance well and blends effortlessly with the skin. We found that this setting powder does not appear patchy upon application.
The “Lock-It Setting Powder” is translucent but has a mattifying and brightening effect when applies on the skin. We found this product to have an airbrushed effect on our makeup. When we tested this product on dry skin, we found that unlike other setting powders, the “Lock-It Setting Powder” does not cling on to dry areas and does not emphasize them.
For optimal results, we recommend applying a layer of SPF-rich moisturizer before applying your makeup and setting powder.
