Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer Review

Damnit all I hate to be the bearer of bad news sigh! I have to break it to you but Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer isn't going to cover up any tattoos you might have and it's kinda sorta over priced.


It's really good.


Got lots and lots to conceal? Dark circles? Puffiness? Fine lines? Full blow wrinkles? A pimple or two? Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer has you covered, literally.

If it's heavy duty you seek, heavy duty you'll get with this brand new concealer from tattoo artist Kat Von D. This creamy concealer promises to become your secret weapon at concealing it all including tattoos....ok let's not get too crazy now Kat...this is SO not going to hide tattoos. It's pigmented that's for damn sure but NOT that pigmented. Paraben-free and ready to service your problem areas this one is well worth laying down $25 USD for.

I liked it. Alot.

First of all major prepping is required as the formula is very creamy but it does dry down to a matte finish would could age eyes and cause more dryness in an already dry area. In my case, my under eye area is like the Sahara Desert so I do have to be careful with this. However, with proper prepping and priming you'll happily be able to blend away imperfections under your eyes and virtually cover everything up with fantastic results for a smooth, flawless finish. This could become HG material for me.

The coverage is comparable to nothing else I own and is on par with theatrical makeup such as items from Ben Nye or Kryolan. It's heavily pigmented so if you're suffering from heavy dark circles this will instantly become your new best friend. I don't have terrible dark circles but I do have tired eyes in the morning and puffiness which I seek to conceal for a fresher more awake look and this does that in aces and spades.

The product blends fairly well but it does feel rather dry on and has the potential to crease and cake so as I mentioned prep, prep, prep prior to use. It'll settle into fine lines so use a tiny bit as that's all you really need considering the pigmentation on the product. A little goes a long way and too much will just cake, crease, and settle into fine lines.

Price tag...hmmmmm $25 bucks...that's alot of money. I know how cheap of me right? But Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer is $22 USD....and this is $25 USD...kinda costly dontcha think? But in it's defense I will say it's worth it.

If you thought that Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer wasn't dense enough and had a watery formula you may very well adore Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer as the formula is a good deal creamier and heavier but it does have the potential to look unnatural so again I'll remind you a little goes a long way.

I'm Muse Approving this for purchase simply because it does hide major baggage. If you're looking for a seriously pigmented concealer that will cover it ALL up I highly suggest snagging one of these. I really liked it and I'll definitely pick up another when I've run through this tube.

Tried it?

Love it?

i tried only one Kat Von D product, which is the liquid eyeliner. like it but not liking its slow drying character.

this concealer looks really interesting and you make it sound so good! wish we had it here so i could try it out.

I think it has to do with the coloring that's why it doesn't cover tattoos? But wow! it looks heavy duty! it is quite thick even on photos :) It is pricey for $25.00 for such a tiny tube, but if it works, it's worth it right?

I'm so glad you said this was thicker than the MUFE Lift Concealer. I find that it is too liquid-y for my use. I may just have to pick this one up!

This is really interesting! I was wondering if it covered tattoos (and doubting it) but also surprised a tattoo artist would put her seal of approval on something that DIDN'T cover tattoos. Hmmmm....

I know it tends to cake, you say. How does it build? Does that make the cakiness worse? I wonder if layering on a non-eye area would be different. I may test myself on a wrist tattoo...

Verrrrrry interesting... :)

Thanks for another rocking review, Musie!

hi jen!

I really doubt you can cover tats with this...maybe if you use the entire tube? LOL I must say that really is true but maybe they are just using the name as a gimmicky deal? but in the deets it does say cover under eye circles and tattoos...but no way not happening..I haven't tried as I don't sport any ink but I did try on a small beauty mark and nope didn't happen :)

but damn fine on the eye area :)

I wouldn't build it too much as it may look unnatural if you do and since it's really pigmented you only need a tiny bit :)

Go test it on your tat and come back and give me the good word. Curious minds. I tried it on the small mark I mentioned and nada...! If you do need coverage for tats let me know as I know a good brand that works wonders.

Thank YOU ;-) for the awesome comment!

I have a tattoo that's been 95 percent lasered off...I just bought the concealer so am curious to see if it works on what little pigmentation I have left in that area! Love the lipsticks from this line. My BF does too, he immediately noticed and said I looked great. A little of the lipstick goes a long way though! :)

Do you think this will work on stretch marks? My stretch marks are pretty light. I've had them since I can remember from I guess rapid growth spurts when I was younger, but I'm self cautious about them. =( I was just wondering if this product would work? I've never tried any body make up before. Thanks in advance for any answers.<3

hi anonymous

no hun this won't work sadly :( This is good for under eyes but I doubt it'll cover up stretch marks. Try dermablend that's best for body cover up.

Hope that works :-D
