When I heard that MAC Cosmetics would be bringing out a Hello Kitty make up range I was so excited and knew I would want it all! A fashion icon for 34 years and currently a tourism ambassador for Japan, Hello Kitty seems to be taking over the world with that adorable face of hers!
The make-up colours are inspired by what we`ve seen on the runways for spring. The combination of packaging in pink and black, and the mood created in its visual advertising is simply divine – feline candy-like and incredibly girly with a twist of complexity is what it conjures up.
Hello Kitty and MAC Cosmetics are loved globally, so it was really only a matter of time until the collaboration happened! Jennifer Balbier, SVP Product Development, MAC Worldwide comments –
`The collection is for all ages, but it`s about a younger attitude. It is light, fresh and fun.`
You can`t fail to notice the two amazingly beautiful images used to advertise the make-up collection. They were shot by one of my favourite photographers Nick Knight; the images really showcase how make-up can transform your look and how creative you can be with the Hello Kitty range, the Alice in Wonderland meets Wizard of Oz concept totally works for me.
From Hello Kitty Mild, to Hello Kitty Wild, the accessories and Hello Kitty Kouture, each set offers an array of colours, which are great to play around with. You`ll be able to create some daring and playful looks. The Kouture range is definitely a must have for all Hello Kitty fans, as it includes limited edition pieces and features chic packaging adorning sparkling Swarovski crystals – I love it!
Hello Kitty Wild Range:
The Pink Glitter Eye Liner: Kitty Power £12.72
There is just enough colour to really emphasise your eyes and I couldn’t believe how easy this eye liner is to apply!
The Lipstick: Fashion Mews £11.26
This lipstick has a sheer pale lavender colour, which is a cute statement colour and is perfect for summer! It`s an unusual colour and makes a great change from the usual pinks and reds I tend to wear. The Hello Kitty stamp on the actual lipstick is a charming bit of detail.
The Lipglass: Nice Kitty £10.28
The lipglass has a sheer neon pink with blue pearl effect. It may seem a little bright and garish in the tube, but once applied it’s to your lips it gives them a glossy and slightly tinted pink colour – not over the top at all. The subtleness is pretty, giving just enough colour to leave you ready for pouting action!
The Tinted Lip Conditioner: Pink Fish £10.28
This has a soft neutral pink colour, which is a handy item to fit comfortably in any girl`s make-up bag. It`s extremely soft when applied to your lips and gives them a slight glimmer. Gorgeous to use and perfect for summer, as it’s not too heavy!
The Beauty Powder: Pretty Baby £15.17
This powder consists of a soft sunny pink and gold colour. I have to say it really does give my cheeks a natural healthy glow and I found this colour perfect for me, as I don`t suit pink blushers at all.
Overall, a stunning make-up range which I would recommend to any Hello Kitty or MAC Cosmetic fans! The colours are gorgeous, the packaging is very very cute, it`s all really easy to apply, but best of all it looks amazing when it`s on.
