FIRST IMPRESSIONS: KAT VON D BEAUTY LONDON CALLING LIMITED EDITION SET



We are all eagerly awaiting for the Kat Von D beauty to land at Debenhams in the UK. And if you're reading this you probably pretty excited too! I saw that there was a limited edition set that was launched over the bank holiday weekend. The 'London Calling' which features three favourites in miniature size. These are so cute, and if you like me and are just trying your first Kat Von D items this is a good place to start.

There are 3 best selling items in this collection: the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare, the Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lolita and the Tattoo Liner in Trooper. They came within a mini box wrapped in tissue paper - the products were smaller than I expected but they are so adorable and dainty!


This is the infamous Tattoo Liner in Trooper which is a 'must have' product, to makeup artists and Youtubers. This has a waterproof formula and a paintbrush like a nib. It also has a press down suction lid which prevents the liner from drying out. The nib is soo sharp which makes it easy to create a fierce wing liner. I really like this soo far and I perfected my liner in a matter of seconds. This has tempted me to purchase the full size when it launches and will probably replace my Stila Stay All DayWaterproof Liquid Eye Liner. I've done some swatches below to see how easy it is to control and build.

Look at this beauty! Kat Von D is definitely one of a kind, the packaging is so unique and beautiful. The studded element definitely makes me want to treasure the lipstick even more. The lipstick shade is called Lolita and claims to have bold pigment, long wearing and has colour cushion technology. I haven't properly worn this yet on a full day but the swatches on my arm were really difficult to get rid off with micellar water. The lipstick is very creamy and easy to apply and has a vanilla icing smell which does not linger. So far a thumbs up from me.

In  this set, you get the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare. The product comes in a plastic tube with an intricate design on the lid. It also has a doe foot applicator and also has that same vanilla icing smell. It claims to be long wearing, pigmented and is a matte finish. This has a thick formula and I found that I did not need to redip the applicator back into the tube for more product. This lasts on me all day and does not transfer when I eat or drink. It is a little dry but not uncomfortable since it is a matte finish.  I really like this and it has tempted me to try more shades from the collection. This colour on me looks rosy on me, I have a picture on Instagram and below.

 

Overall I am quite impressed with this trio. I do want to try more shades from the lip collections and also the Lock-It foundation and concealer since I like full coverage.

Hope your having a good bank holiday !
