KVD Lock-It Voxbox

August 27, 2016

When I was in 7th grade I wanted a "cool haircut" something with choppy short layers and similar to the models on Hot Topic (surprisingly it was a cute and demure haircut?). The lady cutting my hair said the haircut I chose looked like, "Kat Von D's". Later I Googled KVD and I was amazed. Here was this beautiful, porcelain skin, tattooed beauty, everything I wanted to be. I started watching L.A. Ink religiously, I bought Kat's book High Voltage Tattoo in 2009, I even remember buying L.A Ink merchandise (flip flops + a trucker hat! 2009 was a weird year).

In my late years of middle school and early years of high school I discovered the wonderful land of Sephora. Not sure how I missed that place because they always talked about it on Gilmore Girls. However, as I started getting into makeup I gravitated of course to Kat Von D's line, the early years. As I mentioned earlier I love her products. Lol even post-Jeffree Star feud + every other PR nightmare I will buy Kat's products. The quality, packaging, and ultimately image of the creative brand have always been my first picks at Sephora. Over the years I've gone through countless numbers of KVD's foundation, eye shadow palettes (Ladybird being my favorite, RIP), eyeliner, mascara, you get it.

Influenster sent me this amazing package of KVD Lock-It products to review and here are my musings!
KVD Lock -It Concealer Creme

I'd like to start out by saying that I've always had a hard time using concealer. Does it go under? Does it go over? Why doesn't it cover those bad acne scars and those red spots?

When I tried KVD's concealer I didn't know what I was in for. I knew they had just changed the formula because my cousin uses this concealer! Hi Krissy!

I've been using this concealer for the past couple of weeks and I've been very pleased with it. The applicator is a doe foot wand and you barely need to use any product to get full coverage concealer. The concealer doesn't feel heavy on me either! I would suggest using very little and using a small brush to tap it in. Influenster sent me light 9 (neutral) & medium 17 (warm). I went ahead and tried both of these concealers but neither of them really matched my skin. Surprisingly I've gotten pretty tan this summer. Blaming the bf for inviting me to a Royals day game with him! I went ahead and got two other shades medium 23 and 25. These two have been working much better for me. I would highly recommend trying a few concealers in store before making the big decision.

I tried light 9 (neutral), medium 17 (warm). I also went out and got medium 23 (cool), medium 25 (warm). Medium 25 warm seemed to work the best on me (I put concealer over). I will switch to medium 23 when it gets cooler. I hope they expand this range to add a green concealer since they have a pure white concealer!

KVD Lock-It Edge Concealer Brush
I've always wanted KVD  brushes but holy, they're pricey. When I found out I was getting brushes too I nearly cried. I don't know why. I think as a blogger and influencer? its a really humbling and amazing opportunity when you get to test products with a brand you have not only been shopping since you were 15, but also adore. Overall, this brush works really well for concealer. I investigated other Influenster users reviews and a lot of people used a beauty blender in addition to this brush. Now that's a lot of steps for me, but I found that this brush still worked well when I used it on top of foundation. It blends well. I love the pointy-ness of these brushes they are supposed to resemble paint brushes and I think they are not only beautiful but have a good feel in terms of handling.

KVD Lock-It Setting Powder

This setting powder to me was beautiful. You don't need much to even set your makeup! Personally I feel like I need some advice from Sephora employees on the best time to set your makeup. Post contour or pre contour?

KVD Lock-It Setting Powder Brush

I loved this beautiful big fluffy brush. It gives you so much ability to set your makeup beautifully!

All in all these products are amazing. I do have a comment though. As a long time wearer and lover of full coverage foundation including KVD's own I would not suggest buying both the concealer and the foundation if you do not need it. I would definitely suggest this concealer to someone who needs under-eye coverage. I personally don't do my under eye area often, as dark circles have become a part of my life lol. I would suggest both brushes, and the setting powder to everyone! Kat Von D 2016!

Hope everyone is having a relaxing and beautiful week!

  11. I feel you, girlie, Kat is one cool chic! The more I learn about her and what she stands for, I grow to like her and her brand more and more. I've personally never read a negative review on her products, all boast about the coverage, packaging, and of course, quality of the products. I've yet to try any of them, but I'm definitely interested! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!

    XO,

    1. I agree with you! I hardly ever hear negative thoughts on any of her products. The packaging I think has gotten a bit cheaper over time but I don't think its made the products any less of what they are. I remember when she had metal eye shadow palettes but I think the cardboard ones are still nice too and have more colors. Likewise Jalisa, take care!
