Hello Kitty Say Hello Palette – Wild Thing

DSC_4520

My girl Hello Kitty is still struttin’ her sexy self up and down the beauty aisles. I’ve been super excited about the Hello Kitty beauty line ever since it first debuted at Sephora a good 2 years ago. The brand seems to consistently come out with new products and palettes with adorable packaging. Like this new Wild Thing palette…

Pretty, uh?

The palette contains 6 eyeshadows. 4 here…

I’m not sure why the eyeshadows at the bottom are larger. I thought for a second that they were face powders or bronzers but nope, these are definitely eyeshadows. They appear to be best fitted for placing under the brows. Oh, and speaking of the pigmentation of these shadows…

They aren’t the best. So so quality is the norm with the Hello Kitty beauty line. I’ve learned to deal with it because I am more attracted to the actual packaging of the products than the performance of them. Crazy, I know but hey…only a true Hello Kitty fan would make sense of these things. The line is really best suited for the younger beauty lover as I would imagine that they wouldn’t care much about the quality of the products.

Of course, you could really make these work but packing on the color and using an intense base but the longevity isn’t long lasting. But is the palette adorable to look at? Um yeah. It’s Hello Kitty.

Cost: $38

Where to Buy: Sephora and Sephora.com

Hello Kitty brush set. How ca-ute!

Ohmigoodness, I can’t stand Hello Kitty’s cutest. I swear It increases by the second. Take this Hello Kitty Beauty brush set from Sephora, for example…

Okay, don’t laugh. It is hella hard trying to take a picture of a metallic brush set without showing my reflection. Still. It’s cute though, uh? I’ve had my eyes on that for quite some time and I am super excited about getting the opportunity to review it. With the holidays coming up, folx are gearing up for holiday finds and this may be one that you  need to add to your list.

Who is this brush set for? An avid Hello Kitty fan, no doubt. But are the brushes up to par?

They’re okay. These are synthetic travel-size brushes. I wish the website actually said that because I’m pretty sure many folx purchased without knowing the the brushes would be so small. I like travel size brushes. But of course, only for traveling. The best thing about these brushes?

Each brush let’s you know its function. That’s pretty groovy. The brushes include:

– Face Brush
– Eyeshadow Brush
– Shader/Blending Brush
– Angled Eyeliner Brush
– Lip Brush

They feel good. While they aren’t super scratchy they aren’t insanely soft either. Which is a good thing. The downfall about the brush container is that it can only house travel size items. If you decide to use it for an eyeliner or regular sized brush, it simply won’t fit. That kinda sucks.

That said, I think this is perfect for the Hello Kitty obsessed who don’t have high makeup and beauty demands. For gals who want something to look pretty and don’t require much when it comes to makeup storage, this is perfect.

Priced at $49, it’s a bit on the ‘spensive side, but hey…HK isn’t always a cheap gal.

You can grab this Hello Kitty brush set from Sephora locations and Sephora.com.

Dear Hello Kitty, Mirror Mirror, on the Wall…

It this doesn’t scream “Beauty girl who loves Hello Kitty”, I don’t know what does. This hand-held mirror comes from the Hello Kitty collection by Sephora. It’s more of collector’s item than a functional everyday use mirror.

In fact, I don’t even use it often. I’m too afraid of of breaking it. Which, of course is likely to happen. With me being clumsy and all. The price is a little steep for $35. Good thing I received it as a gift. The silver chrome is plastic but I would have LOVED if it was glass or metal. It would have given it a luxe and “expensive” feel. It being plastic means it’s prone to nicks and scratches. But who cares. It’s Hello Kitty and therefore it’s cute.

Have you grabbed this from Sephora yet? Oh…and don’t even get me started on the new Hello Kitty Grafitti collection.

Be still my Hello Kitty lovin’ heart….

Mascara Monday: Maybelline Hello Kitty Volum’ Express Cat eyes mascara

I thought long and hard about reviewing mascara. Because I love y’all, I didn’t want you to be all upset at me for reviewing a mascara that MOST of you will not be able to find. This mascara is (or was…not sure if they are still selling it or not) exclusive to Asia. And then I thought about it. There have been several mascaras that I’ve reviewed that have been exclusive to the U.S. Which, I’m sure, left my International sisters fuming somethin’ serious.

Plus this mascara is just TOO cute to not be added to the Mascara Bin.

But even with her cuteness, was this mascara a winner?
