Kat Von D Beauty made the rare yet genius move of including multiple shade options for their new Lock-It Blotting Powder

We’ve been anxiously awaiting new information on Kat Von D’s Lock-It Blotting Powder from the moment we first heard about it and saw its beautiful wax seal-inspired design. And now we’ve gotten just a bit more information that has us even more excited than we ever thought possible! This weekend at the New York City IMATS, (The International Makeup Artist Trade Show) the Lock-It Blotting Powder — as well as its matching mirror — made a surprise appearance that delighted everyone!

Knowing how spectacular the Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It collection is, there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that the blotting powder is gonna be a game-changer. Kat’s commitment to creating flawless formulas alone is enough to get us all jazzed about it. But the appearance at the IMATS just showed us just how much more thrilling it is going to be than we ever could have anticipated.

The Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Blotting Powder is going to be available in FOUR shades, for $29, each.

Traditionally, blotting powders only come in a single, translucent shade, so it’s completely shocking to see that there will be a wider variety of shades to pick from. It’s kind of unheard of, so of course the brilliant minds at Kat Von D Beauty are making an already great product even more accessible and special.


The four shades are Fair, Light, Medium and Deep and come in a refillable compact so you can easily replace it when you run out. The instant mattifying formula will keep your makeup fresh and won’t let it budge no matter what — which will be especially helpful in the coming sweaty summer months!


And just because we’re busy being excited about the different shades, don’t think we aren’t still reeling over that gorgeous packaging. We love that old-timey, romantic goth vibe!
