Which holiday sets are you most excited about this year?
For me it’s always Tarte Cosmetics, Too Faced, and Kat Von D (oh, and Sephora of course). The holidays are always the best time to stock up on products that have been on your wish list since they always offer value sets that allow you to try multiple products and colours.
One of my favourite matte liquid lipsticks have always been Kat Von D Beauty. Her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula is one of my favourites, and when it comes to shade options, she was one of the first brands to put out some truly unique colours.
If you’ve never tried the formula before then you must pick up the Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick set, which features eight of her neutral shades, including a new and exclusive shade. From nudes to browns to purples and even a black, there is a shade in here for every skin tone and occasion. Seven of these are part of her regular line, and the exclusive shade, Madrid, can only be found in this limited-edition set. Of course you can wear each shade separately or you can mix and match them for a truly custom colour.
In case you aren’t familiar with the formula, the colour goes on liquid and then dries down to a matte finish. Compared to other matte liquid lipsticks out there, I have always found the Kat Von D ones to be very weightless and easy to wear. The colour stays on for the most part all day, but I have had to retouch throughout the day depending on what I’m doing (eating/drinking, exercising, etc.) The product is infused with natural ingredients, including vitamin E and sunflower seed, so wear is comfortable, but I do find it to be a touch drying after multiple hours of wear.
Considering that these are all nudes, I do think you get a wide variety of wearable shades in this set. At 3ml per product, you get a good amount to try out and if you really love the colour then I would pick up the full-size. Kat Von D also has a set which has all her shades in it I believe, but this particular set is wonderful since it retails for C$66 and gives you eight of the colours for the price of basically three full-size shades.
If perfume is more your thing, then you’re in luck since the brand actually released two scents earlier this year, Saint and Sinner. Considering that I’m a low-key perfume hoarder I’ve actually never tried her fragrances before, but if they are like the rest of her products, I’m sure they are fantastic.
Now if you’re like me and don’t really need a new full-size perfume, but totally open to trying one out and love the brand, then you’re in luck. Kat Von D has released two sets based on each perfume. Each set includes a travel-size fragrance along with a limited-edition shade in her Everlasting Lipcolour range.
I received the Sinner duo, which includes a portable travel spray of Sinner Eau De Perfum, as well as the shade Sinner, a midnight plum colour that you can only get in this limited-edition set. Aside from how amazing the scent actually is, I would pick up this duo for the lip colour alone. Can we talk about how stunning that purple is?! At C$36 this set is a definite must, if not for someone else, then for you.
Lip colour aside (it’s so beautiful with a neutral eye!), Sinner Eau De Parfum has notes of patchouli, wood, and cinnamon, the perfect spicy floral scent for winter.
There is also a Saint collection, which also has a travel-sized size of Saint Eau De Perfum and an Everlasting Lip Colour in the colour Saint, a peachy rose. I haven’t tried that set, but I’m totally digging Sinner anyways.
There are a couple more items in the Kat Von D Beauty holiday collection, but let me know if any of these make your list for the holidays.
Will you be asking for any items from Kat Von D? Which ones?
