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

Hey Hello Kitty lovers, have any of you tried the HK beauty line?

10 Things You Should Get From Sephora’s Friends & Family sale

 

You know what time it is! It’s time for Sephora’s Friends & Family online sale. Wooo hoooo! Beauty junkies everywhere wait all year for this sale. In fact, cheap guys and gals like me don’t make large purchases UNTIL this sale arrives. And to be quite honest, you should be that way about everything. Seriously.

If you don’t have a coupon for an item, don’t even get it. Like…fo reals.

Sephora’s F&F is working a little differently this year in that you have to go to this Sephora link and enter your email addy to get your unique sale code. After submitting my email, I got my code within minutes. This code is for online purchases only. Keep in mind that this is a 1-time use code and only valid in the U.S.

That last part sucks majorly, I know. If you’re stuck on what to get, I am here to help. Check out 10 of my favorite Sephora products.

1. Clarisonic Mia. Um, yahhhh. I purchased my Mia during a sale and while it was a bit pricey, this is one purchase that I do NOT regret making. If you’ve got the money and want to hook your skin up with something nice, get the Mia. Check out my complete review of it here. And ohmigoodness, that Jaguar Mia is the coolest looking one yet. Of course, I want it.

2. Fairy Drops ScandalQueen mascara. I absolutely LOVED this mascara and consider it to be one of my favorites. I gave it high marks for a good reason. 8)

3. Graffiti Hello Kitty brush set. I’ve been coveting that thing for quite some time now. And not only can get it for the low low with the discount, but it is now $25. Woo hooo!

4. Boscia’s Clarifying Detox mask has been a staple in my beauty routine for weeks now. If your skin needs some boosting in, get this mask. Fast.

5. Make Up For Ever’s #92 eyeshadow. You can’t call yourself an eyeshadow lover if you don’t own (and absolutely obsess over) this kid. Known as one of the most fantastical eyeshadows ever in the history of makeup, #92 should be an absoute staple in your collection.

6.  Nails, Inc.’s magnetic polishes. Yes, they are super expensive regularly priced, but this discount can make purchasing a lot less painless. I plan on scooping some up myself. Want to know what magnetic nail polish looks like? Check this out.

7.Fresh’s lip balm.  Remember the post I did on how much I looooove them. Not only can you save on that but they have darling gift sets that retails for less than $30. Ooooh yeah!

8. Lancome Bi-facil makeup remover? What in the world would I do without it? I made the mistake of trying a similar product and my eyes burned for days. Maybe not days, but put it this way…I will never stop using Bi-facil. That said, while it’s pricey, get it for the low low with the discount!

9.  Carol’s Daughter’s Rosemary Mint Clarifying Sulfate-Free Shampoo. I know I save all of my hair talk for Loc Rocker, but if you’re in need of a wonderful and purifying shampoo, check out  this baby. Aside from loving the combination, this is one fantastic shampoo for us dry hair’d folx. Oh, and Carol’s Daughter’s packaging changes? Loves it!

10. Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer. Dang. I just LOVE saying “Noir”. It sound all fancy ‘n ish. So yeah. I haven’t reviewed this yet but beat me to it. This top coat for lashes is effing amazing. And I’ll save the rest of my thoughts for the formal review.

Got your eyes on anything at Sephora?

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….

Hello Kitty Beauty: The Lips!

So we’ve covered the the Hello Kitty Beauty line when it came to nails and eyes, right? Let’s hit up the lippies and see how they fare, mkay?

The line has 3 different kinds of lip products. The one I’m missing is a balm that comes in a cute jar.

Yep, I will definitely have to pick that one up on my next Sephora run. But in the meantime, get the deets on the other glosses.

Free Hello Kitty Beauty goodies for Sephora VIB!

As if I’m not obsessed with this collection enough, check out what just landed in my inbox…

Aw man. Looks like I’ll be in Sephora AGAIN this weekend. Lately that place has been callin’ my name somethin’ serious.

When I’m at work: “Brittaaaanyyy…”

When I’m working out: “Brittanyyyy….”

When I’m blogging: “Yo! Beeeee!”

At least I HOPE that’s Sephora calling my name. :? If you are a Sephora VIB and have at least 100 points in your bank then you are eligible to snag that Hello Kitty fragrance sample. I got a whiff of it last weekend and while it was too fruity and sweet for my liking, I still want it for packaging purposes.

I know, I know. Don’t judge me. Have you checked out the Hello Kitty Beauty collection yet? Whatcha think? Oh, and unless you are ready to spend ALL of your money on this cuteness, do NOT watch this video.

I’ve warned you.

XOXO,
