@sephora Hello Kitty Say Hello Palette photos review and look #giftidea #beautygift #giftsforgirls

Every time I see new Sephora Hello Kitty goodies I die inside (from happiness, of course.)

I’ve got to keep it real and say that after trying a few different Sephora / Hello Kitty items, this is by far the best.  Perhaps they’ve listened to customer feedback and improved?

Whatever they did, it works.

If you’re giving this as a gift – it comes in a nice box which will be easy to wrap.

Your recipient will know exactly what is inside.

Here she is, Say Hello to Hello Kitty palette.  Love the size, it is perfect for travel too!

The four eye shadows on the inside are a nice neutral palette of colors.  With a touch of iridescence and sparkle, which I love.  The mirror is a good size for touch-ups on the go.

The bottom of the palette has two beautiful shimmers and highlighters.

This is the look I created and added a touch of Sephora gold glitter liner for some extra holiday bling.

So what do you think?  Do you love neutrals enough to go for this palette?  Or are you just Hello Kitty obsessed and want to buy it because it is Hello Kitty?

Share in the comments.

This palette is available now at Sephora.com and in stores for $36 so it is a nice gift for a sister, or great girlfriend.

Hello Kitty Sephora Apple Balm Citrus photos, review

Apple Balm ($10) Four juicy shades of rich, glossy balm provide exceptional hydration and amazing color payoff with a lipstick-like intensity. Lightweight and non-sticky, the formula is infused with Hello Kitty’s signature ingredients: Strawberry Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Apple Extract to soothe and soften the skin while providing anti-oxidant protection. Select from Watermelon (peachy pink), Gumdrop (bubblegum pink), Citrus (tangerine orange) and Violet (grape purple), each available in a collectable apple-shaped pot.

It is like a little honey pot where the top pops off and you need to use your finger or an lip brush to apply. 

I am a Hello Kitty / Sephora lover so it is hard for me to say bad things about the products.  However I do find the lip balm to be slightly tacky – so it is up to the user what they prefer.

I’m one who more often leans to slight tackiness opposed to super slick, so this works for me.

There is hardly any color payoff more of a clear super shine.  But again, the packaging is to die for.  Simple as that.

The Hello Kitty Mon Amour collection is available for a limited time beginning February 2011 in all Sephora stores, as well as by calling 1-877-SEPHORA or logging on to sephora.com via computer or smartphone.

Kat Von D Jeffree Liquid Lipstick review

Today I have for you, a review of Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick in the color “Jeffree”

For starters, the packaging is beautiful.  Each one comes in their own black and silver foil “tattooed” box.  Very cool.  The color Jeffree is a super girly and bright Barbie pink.  Applicator wise it is a foam tipped lip gloss… it looks like a gloss while you’re putting it on, but then it dries into a powerful stay-put bod with a full lip stick color – lip stain.

It was fairly easy to apply evenly. This time (I learned from using Outlaw, first) I used a lip brush to prevent the slight bit of feathering since I am developing fine lines around my lips.  Overall it lasted from 7am – 1pm and it survived coffees, water, lunch, meetings, kisses, etc – this is for you.

My husband and son were also pleased that after our good morning smooches I was the only one left wearing the color…

Everlasting Liquid Love Lipstick ($18) – Make a statement with striking, long-lasting color that won’t smudge or migrate. The richly pigmented formulation leaves your lips stained with a beautiful matte velvety finish that lasts for hours. For a flawless look, shake the bottle well before application and apply a single layer to inside the lip line in a smooth, even motion. Wait 1-2 minutes for lips to dry and you’ll be set for the rest of the day. Select from a sophisticated range of six shades, including Jeffree (coral), Berlin (orange-red), Bow & Arrow (nude), Outlaw (deep blood red), Backstage Bambi (hot pink), Lolita (dusty rose).

Hello Kitty Mon Amour Makeup Bag is the cutest bag ever

Yes I am going to gush and write about a makeup bag.  Why?  Because it is Hello Kitty and pink and gold and really effing cute, that’s why!

This bag is large enough to use as a clutch, which I do.  Thank you HK / Sephora.

To open it you pull the gold bow.  At first I was like, “Are you kidding me?  Does this get any cuter?”  We’re all match-y with the gold Hello Kitty face on the front.  I die.

Inside is equally fabulous, with a small pocket to put change or tiny items.  I use this bag to carry around at work – it fits my touch up makeup, money, cell phone, and femme items.

Serious WIN.

Mon Amour Makeup Bag ($29) – Hold everything you need for a romantic getaway in this pale pink striped ruffle bag with signature Mon Amour pastel print and shiny gold hardware.

The Hello Kitty Mon Amour collection is available for a limited time beginning February 2011 in all Sephora stores, as well as by calling 1-877-SEPHORA or logging on to sephora.com via computer or smartphone.

Kat Von D Saint Eyeliner Trooper photos and review

This is the Trooper eyeliner that is part of the Triple Threat Tattoo Liner package from Sephora.

Triple Threat Tattoo Liners ($39) – Get one eyeliner set that does it all with this trio of extreme long-wear, waterproof, quick-dry, blackest of black liquid liners. Each one features a different innovative felt brush tip and is fitted with airtight cap to prevent dry out. Follow your mood to create endless Kat eye looks – from the dramatic to saintly.

  • Saint – The skinny tip creates a super precise slender line. Use along your lash line to create a precise line to define your eyes. It’s also the perfect tip to touch up any eye look.

I’m still learning how to use eyeliners but I felt like this one was pretty easy to use.  It is pretty much like using a fine tipped sharpie so you can get from the very corner to the outer corner however you wish.  One of my fabulous readers suggested doing smaller strokes – more of a “connect the dots” application since I am still learning and it worked great!  Keep the tips coming!  Overall the liner lasted all day and did not fade.

This is part of the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca collection that is available for a limited time now in all Sephora stores, as well as by calling 1-877-SEPHORA or logging on to sephora.com via computer or smartphone.

Hello Kitty Mon Amour Compact Mirror review

Mon Amour Compact Mirror ($19) – A must-have for any makeup bag, this mirror is dual sides with 1x magnification on one side and 3x on the other and is decorated with the signature Mon Amour pastel print.

 

Expensive for a mirror?  Yep.  Super cute because it is Hello Kitty?  Yep.  Would I have splurged on this myself?  Yep.

This is sturdy and took a beating in my purse and being used 100x a day at work.  I love it because it is Hello Kitty and has a real purpose.

Its also made a handy conversation piece because apparently most women LOVE Hello Kitty.

Kat Von D Outlaw Liquid Lipstick review

Today I have for you, a review of Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick in the color “Outlaw”

For starters, the packaging is beautiful.  Each one comes in their own black and silver foil “tattooed” box.  Very cool.  The color Outlaw is a super rusty brick red.  Applicator wise it is a foam tipped lip gloss… it looks like a gloss while you’re putting it on, but then it dries into a powerful stay-put bod with a full lip stick color – lip stain.

It was fairly easy to apply evenly.  I think next time I may use a lip brush and a lip liner to prevent the slight bit of feathering since I am developing fine lines around my lips.  Overall it lasted from 7am – 5pm and I had to scrub to get it off… so if you’re looking for something for crazy length wear and will survive your coffees, meetings, kisses, etc – this is for you.

My husband and son were also pleased that after our good morning smooches I was the only one left wearing the color…
