This is the first Kat Von D product I’ve ever bought. The whole Glam-Goth (eh, is it glam-goth?) look, wasn’t on my radar, ie I thought I was a smidge too old for this brand. But I was on the lookout for a small loose powder for my make-up bag. I’m trying to lighten my ‘touch up’ make-up, but the older you get, the more repair work you need.
KAT VON D – ‘LOCK-IT’ SETTING POWDER
This silky, non-drying powder features Micro-Blurring Technology™ to softly diffuse pores for a refined, selfie-ready finish.

I only briefly glanced the reviews, but saw that they were very positive.
This little travel sized pot comes with a sifter in the lid and a tiny powder puff. The sifter doesn’t allow too much powder to be dispersed from the little star-shaped holes which is great, because it doesn’t cloud up and make a mess. I wouldn’t use the puff, I prefer a brush.
It doesn’t settle into pores or lines, there’s no flashback and it’s not cakey. There’s a difference between an ageing matt look face and a non shiny one. This one takes off the shine, without giving you that flat, ageing look. I think satin-matte is a solid description of this product.
IT’S NOT CHEAP!
The powder was on offer for £8.50, but it’s back up to £10.00 now. You have to watch the Debenhams site like a hawk, they have some great beauty offers, but they don’t stay up there long.
