KAT VON D HELLO CANADA SET – review & swatches

When I saw this limited edition set from Kat Von D, I knew I had to grab it to try out some of the brands’ best known products. The Hello Canada set contains 3 minis of Kat’s best selling products all wrapped up inside of a large vegan leather bag.  Although, Kat Von D products have been available in Canada for what feels like years, I am glad they came out with this set. I personally, had never purchased any of the lip products before and who doesn’t love minis? These are handbag or travel essentials – and oh-so perfectly paired with a massive clutch. This would be a great introduction to the brand or a fabulous gift for a friend who purchases cruelty-free! I’ve read that Kat Von D is becoming 100% vegan and all the products contained in this set are vegan. This set is branded as Kat’s most coveted products, which are some of the brands best sellers. Inside of the gorgeous clutch there are 3 minis. There are 2 lippie formulas and a liquid liner, so there is something for most beauty lovers.

This set contains Kat’s most coveted:

Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare is described as a cocoa blush. It has a comfortable matte finish and opaque coverage in just one swipe! A full size of this product retails for $24CAD but his mini as it contains 3mL of product compared to the full sized 6.6mL. Seems like a good deal to me!

Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita is described as a chestnut rose. This lipstick does not set, but has a comfortable feeling on the lips. Plus there’s a faint sweet scent. I adore the packaging and formula of this mini, and totally want to get my hands on more! A full size will set you back $26 for 3g of product, where this mini contains 1.2g.

Tattoo Liner in Trooper is described as a satin black and is my favourite type of eyeliner applicator being a pen form. The major difference in this to other liners in the brush tip which won’t dry or lose it’s shape. This formula is a lot of people’s holy grail eyeliner.  A full size runs for $25 for 0.55mL and this mini is just 0.007mL but it seems to have lasted me quite a while so far!

Vegan Leather Makeup Pouch embossed with the KVD logo and a sleek design. How could I resist?  It feels luxe and rock all at once. It’s a fun addition to the set!

The Verdict:

If you’ve never tried Kat V D products, or you want to support vegan and cruelty-free beauty, this set is definitely worth picking up. I do wish that there was a bit more colour variety between the 2 lippies, but I know that these brown-nudes appeal to most. I opted to get this set because for $30 it is a great way to try some new goodies. Now I feel familiar with the formulas, and I can try more adventurous shades with confidence in the products! Bonus, the bag is super cute and feels like good quality! You can pick up the set on Sephora’s website for a limited time. I’m just gonna give you a head’s up that I actually purchased 2 and one will be in an upcoming giveaway! I have been collecting a few products here and there for something soon!
