Hello! Hope you're having a great day! For this post, I want to share with you my swatch and review of the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lip Set.
I already mentioned that this set is exclusive to Sephora; as of right now, it is still available online and, when I last visited my local Sephora, it was still in stock in-store. It retails for $42 and is said to be a $91 value. Sephora is pretty good at listing accurate retail values of products in their value sets, so I trust their calculations. This set includes one full size Studded Kiss lipstick in special white packaging and seven mini lipsticks in the standard black packaging. The minis are a little under half the size of a full size lipstick (they're 40% of the size) and a full size Studded Kiss lipstick retails for $21. This is also my first experience with the Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipsticks! I remember when they first came out, I watched a bunch of reviews and a lot of people weren't fans of them; Sephora reformulated them and now lots of people rave about them. I have heard that the quality of the mini lipsticks tend to be less than the full sizes, but that they are still better than the original formulation.
Overall, I think this is a great set! There is a lot of variety here, and there are a lot of colors that everyone can get some use out of. The full size, Gold Blooded, is such a gorgeous color that I would say it's worth getting the set for it alone (granted, then you're paying $42 for what is essentially a $21 lipstick, but this is currently the only way to get it). This is a nice introduction to the Studded Kiss lipsticks and it's a good way to experiment with some colors you might not normally use. Even though I wasn't a fan of all the colors (due to them being "dull", not that they are bad), with the exception of Coven, all the lipsticks performed well and I would happily buy a full size based on these minis (especially with the knowledge that the full size perform better than the minis do).
Thanks for reading! <3
