Kat Von D Lock-It Blotting Powder in Light

No comments :
That packaging though!!!!! Sorry, I had a moment. We got a sneak peek of Kat Von D's Lock-It Blotting Powder what seems like forever ago, but they are finally available! There are 4 shades - Fair, Light, Medium, and Deep. I picked up Light, but realized it doesn't much matter because it goes on translucent anyway. The compact looks like a wax seal with the KVD emblem on it, and I love that! It also has a mirror on the inside of the lid.
The little powder puff that comes with it also has the KVD emblem on the back. 
It's kind of pointless to include a swatch of this, because you won't be able to see anything! However, here it is in the pan. The Fair shade looked completely stark white, which is why I chose to go with light instead.
Now, I can't even begin to describe how smooth this powder is. I was a little put off that the first ingredient is talc, because I know a lot of people absolutely despise when companies put that into cosmetics. But, the first time I tried this I was blown away. I purposely waited until I was pretty shiny and used the powder puff to tap some onto my forehead. It instantly mattified my skin without looking like I just added powder to my face.

I have tried a lot of blotting powders in the past. My favorite was always the Urban Decay De-Slick, but even that one does not work as good for me as this one does. I love that it only takes a tiny bit of product to mattify any oils, because I've always felt icky adding a bunch of powder on top of oily skin throughout the day. At least with this one, you only need the tiniest bit! It also keeps me matte for hours, which is a huge plus with summer time coming. I will definitely put it to the test once we start getting some hotter weather!

The blotting powders are available now at Sephora and Kat Von D Beauty!
