I have sung high praises for Kat Von D’s brand and eagerly await her new releases. Read on to know more about my experience with a new addition to my collection – the Kat Von D Lock It Precision Powder Brush.
A first-of-its-kind powder brush with a unique arched shape, specially designed for setting under eye concealer.
What it does: Now introducing the Lock-It Precision Powder Brush, the first specialty tool for setting under eye concealer. An essential shape for everyone’s brush collection, this brush features an exclusive design for unprecedented control. The rounded silhouette and flat profile give you the precise angles and edges to focus product exactly where you want it, in areas other brushes can’t reach. Custom-shaped to fit perfectly into the under eye area, the Lock-It Precision Powder Brush features a unique density and shape that allows you to pack on loose powder, and also buff it off—two essential steps to a flawless, brightened under eye. Designed with high-quality, soft synthetic bristles, this brush is ideal for use with Lock-It Setting Powder to set under-eye concealer. It can also be paired with your favorite highlighter for precision strobing. The sleek, stiletto handle was inspired by a witch’s broomstick, with smooth, sturdy acrylic handles weighted for an ergonomic grip and ultimate control.
My Experience with Kat Von D Lock-It Precision Powder Brush:
Brush Construction: Following the suit of KVDs signature style in brushes, this brush comes with a long handle which tapers to a point at the end. The brush follows a black and white theme and has the KVD signature on the handle. The brush has a decent weight without being too heavy and sits comfortably in hand.
Bristles: All of KVD brushes are cruelty free and have synthetic bristles. The bristles feel extremely soft to touch have not scratchiness to them. The bristles have not shed at all even after with a couple of washes.
Shape and Performance: The bristles are dome shaped and have a flat front and a narrow side. Even though this brush is designed to be used as an under-eye setting brush, it has amazing versatility. It is has the right balance of density which makes it perfect to use to set the under eye and it is fluffy enough to grab enough powder and distribute it without disturbing the creamy base underneath. Think of it as a fluffier version of traditional foundation brush.
Even though I still love my Wayne Goss Brush 02 for a light dusting of powder on the under eye, I reach for this KVD brush especially when I bake as it’s easy to reach all the hard-to-reach areas, around the eyes and nose with this brush.
I pack on some powder with my damp Beauty Blender and use this brush to dust it off. The domed top reaches till my lower lashes, easily to dust off excess powder and prevents creasing of concealer. It is also great to use for highlighting and the top of it can also be used to deposit product for sharp, contoured cheeks and nose.
Since the bristles are synthetic, it can be used with cream products as well and you can also use alcohol-based spot cleaners without fear of damaging the bristles. I use this with the KVD Setting Powder and they are a perfect match!
Overall, I am very impressed with this brush. It has become an integral part of my makeup routine and I highly recommend it.
