Kat Von D Hello Canada! Set - Lolita, Double Dare, Trooper

The Kat Von D Hello Canada! Set ($45 CAD) is a limited edition, exclusive to Sephora sample set that features a trio of Kat Von D's all time favourite and bestselling products - the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare, the Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita and the Tattoo Liner in Trooper - all encased in a vegan leather bag. 



The 7.25" x 10.5" vegan leather bag is a take or leave it kind of thing. I don't ever go to Sephora to purchase a bag. It's a little flat for a makeup bag and doesn't look so hot when it's stuffed to the brim. But it actually makes quite a nice clutch because (1) it's all black and super sleek and (2) the Kat Von D logo is on the bag but subtly embossed.  

Swatches - Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita; Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Date; Tattoo Liner in Trooper

 
The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($25 CAD for full size) is one of two of my favourite, holy grail liquid liners alongside the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner. The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper isn't the blackest nor is it matte, however the itty bitty brush applicator makes liquid eyeliner easy and the formulation stays put on my very oily lids all day. 


The Mini Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita ($26 CAD for full size) is described as a dusty rose. Now I see why Lolita (in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Formulation) is sold out every time I'm on Sephora online or at an in-store location. It's wearable for everyday (aka work) and flattering on my skintone. The Studded Kiss Lipstick formulation varies, depending on the shade. I've tried Tijuana (a Spanish red) and Underage (a fire engine red), neither of which applied as smooth or felt as comfortable as Lolita. It's not the most creamy lipstick but it's great for a matte. The product lasts 5 hours on my lips, after which I need a touch up. 


Mini Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare ($24 CAD for full size) is described as a cocoa blush. I'm not getting cocoa anywhere in the shade, so I'd describe it myself as a bright rose. It's similar to Lolita minus brown plus pink and a bit brighter. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare is transfer-proof and doesn't come off after 6-7 hours unless I eat a lot of french fries. The comfort is traded off for longevity here, as the product sucks the moisture out of my lips. But it's worth it for a pretty shade, right? 

Is it worth it? Maybe. Based on the full size prices and weights and the sample sized, weights the mini studded kiss lipstick is $10.40 (0.04 oz, 40% full size), the mini everlasting liquid lipstick (0.10 oz, 45.5% full size) is $10.91 and the mini tattoo liner (0.1oz, 45.5% full size) is $11.36. In total, that's a $32.67 CAD value for the makeup pieces and I'm assuming that the vegan leather bag would be at least $15, so then we're at $47.67 CAD. 

You're not getting a discount, but the set is a great way to try out a few of some cult Kat Von D products. That being said, if you can do without the vegan leather bag, you're better off purchasing 2 of the full-sized products for about $50.
