Kat Von D To-Die-For Duo Available Now in the Sephora Rewards Bazaar

The Kat Von D To-Die-For Duo is available in the Rewards Bazaar at Sephora now. Read more about the Rewards Bazaar and what to expect from the program. There are only 300 available in the US and 80 available in Canada, so act quickly if this is something you want. I picked one up. Odds are it will be out of stock long before I receive it though. My plan (if more units were available) was to wait to see what the quality was like before I spent any points on it. This is the first time I’ve redeemed a perk over 500 points in all my years shopping with Sephora, so I hope my first “larger perk” lives up to my expectations.

I ordered this on its own to see if perks for 750+ points can really go on their own. It was also important that I ordered as quickly as possible, so I did not miss out.

The Kat Von D To-Die-For Duo went for 750 points.

It comes in a sturdy box that I will probably keep.

There is card inside made of very thick cardboard.

It comes wrapped in black and white paper, and I appreciate whoever wrapped mine making it look like a face. I thought it was cute and funny (intentional or not).

The box is thin cardboard. Sephora advertised this as a travel case, but the box and the card that came with this use thicker cardboard. I’d have more success carrying those items around.

My box does have a scratch on the top, which is not so bad given some of the others I’ve seen. There are also some nicks on the outer edges of the package.

It is smaller than in looks in pictures, so I wanted to show that it fits inside my hand.

It includes: a 0.007 oz Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($7), a 0.007 oz Kat Von D Ink Liner in Trooper ($7.37), and a Kat Von D coffin case. The eyeliners come nestled inside. These are liquid eyeliners, which expire within a few months of opening. With multiple tattoo liners in my stash, it is possible I will not even keep this one.

I swatched the tattoo liner, because I just opened a fresh one anyway. When I open the other one, I will try to remember to add a swatch to this article.

It tends to bleed a little on me.

This liner is really easy to work with, because the line is thin. It gives those of us with shaky hands room for error without full on raccoon eyes.

I need a few coats to make it opaque, because one pass leaves gaps. This does last all day on me when I use an eye primer.

With only $14.37 in value for the samples, this case should have been nicer. These mini eyeliners are typical 100 point perks, so I expected the case to make up for the other 550. It’s scratched and flimsy. As cute as it is, and it is very cute, this is something I probably would not keep. I may try to keep it for a while, but I will toss it once it looks starts to look damaged. This perk would have been better priced at 250 points, because this case is not worth more than 50 points. Sephora has offered to refund points for anyone who is not satisfied, and a Sephora employee reached out to me to refund mine. Even though Sephora initially missed the mark pricing this perk, I feel the customer service they’ve provided after the fact has been great. They even worked with Kat Von D to send replacement perks that are easily worth more than 750 points.

    Oh man I was so busy at work I didn’t get a chance to even look at Sephora. Of course it was going to be the day this dropped. Oh well, Ill just keep on hogging my points. I cant wait to see what this actually looks like in person.

    Sorry you missed it. I was surprised that it lasted as long as it did. As soon as I published the article, I checked again and noticed it was still available. I logged into the Sephora forum to notify them (in case they did not already know). They already knew and many decided not to bother, because they think it looks like cardboard. If it is cardboard, I just hope it is substantial, because I plan to keep it.

    OMG, I decided to go for the 500 points reward because I was really hesitant about the case. I looooove it, but I really hope it’s made out of good material! This is already going for $150 on Ebay. Will be sticking around for the review! 🙂

    I took a gamble on the case, so my fingers are crossed.
