Well, Hello Kitty. I’ll Go to Paris With You and the Soft, Pigmented Powders in the Hello Kitty Mon Amour Palette

Published in: Eyes, Makeup, Palettes, Sephora

What if Sanrio and Sephora merged, like a Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger, to form a new superstore called Sephrio? And what if the new store carried a much larger selection of Hello Kitty-themed accessories and makeup?

Yeah…that would be cool.

As a 30-something beauty fanatic who still remembers making mix tapes from songs on the radio and blowing all of her birthday money at the Sanrio store at the mall (OMG! The pens with the dangling charms on the end!), I almost dropped my phone when I bumped into the limited edition Hello Kitty Mon Amour Palette ($21) at Sephora the other day.

Paris? Kitty…? Cute!

The little drawings and the balloons filled with pans of powder shadow (eight) and blush (two)? Nope. No way. That’s just too cute.

Not gonna lie, though, I expected these to be annoyingly sheer and chalky — just not up to snuff compared to brands like MAC and NARS — but wow. That wasn’t the case at all. They felt surprisingly smooth and looked beautiful, I thought, in the swatches.

The 10 of them vary in coverage from super sheer pale pink, to violet pastel, to a highly pigmented olive.

This could be a really cute gift for a gal pal who loves cute things, and $21 doesn’t seem like a bad price at all.

Until we get that new Sephrio store…it’s carried exclusively at Sephora stores and online at sephora.com. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Every time I go to Sephora I lust after this! I may take the plunge soon. :D I love Hello Kitty. I have a sweet gloss in Charmmy from this line, and it’s a gorgeous sheer everyday color. I feel so cute when I whip it out for touch-ups. Heehee.

    Why is this SO cute? I’m glad to see that the shadows are nicely saturated as well. I’m not sure I could bring myself to use the palette though, for fear of getting the graphic dirty!

  5. I’ve actually heard that the Hello Kitty for Sephora eyeshadows are surprisingly good quality–smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend. Count me curious–not sure how I like the cutesy packaging though. Maybe for just at-home use :P

    How cute! Love the pastel shades. We had Hello Kitty x Liberty collection last Christmas, and they were so cute, and the eyeshadows are of good quality and good pigmentation too.
