Patentpolish full size: $10.43 CAD / gram Patentpolish mini: $9.55 CAD / gram
Slightly cheaper /gram to buy the kit...but it's main appeal is the ability to try out the formula and four different colours for slightly less than two full sized Patentpolish. Plus, for most people, full sized lip products tend to collect dust in a drawer or a purse pocket before they get fully used up.
In my case, I had never tried Patentpolishes before, and I almost decided against ordering this set in favour of a second gloss or lipstick set. I'm glad I decided to go with this one, because I ended up really liking the formula of these. No where near as sheer as I assumed they would be. I do, still, have to use a lip liner with these...but I don't mind. I use lip liner with most lip colour's anyway.
A definate nice kit to gift someone, or multiple people...or even for yourself.
