Seriously, how many times can one blogger say “Meow” about a makeup collection? But that’s how it makes me feel, so I’ll say it again: MEOW! It’s MAC Hello Kitty time.
My first reaction was mixed when I saw the promo pics for MAC’s latest collaboration. Sure, I was drooling over the branding and packaging from the start (I love Hello Kitty; always have), but the colors just didn’t look like stuff I could wear every day.
Well, color me lame and call me crazy because after seeing the collection in person last night, I’m fully on board now.
Matter of fact, a few stray kittens decided to follow me home last night: Eye Shadow 4 Lucky Tom palette, Tahitian Sand Beauty Powder, Fun & Games Beauty Powder Blush and Cute-Ster Lustre Lipstick.
The Lucky Tom Eyeshadow Palette Colors (from left to right): Creme Royal, Paradisco, Stylin’, Lucky Tom
Fun & Games Beauty Powder Blush
Tahitian Sand Beauty Powder
Tabs was riled up this morning and snipping at my ankles because he hadn’t received his pre-ordered Lucky Tom palette yet. I had to tear him away from mine (did I mention he’s OBSESSED with HK?) long enough to do my face of the day.
For the eyes, I started with a thin layer of Perky Paint Pot over the eyelid.
Then, with Tabs locked in the other room, I went to work with the eyeshadows, patting Paradisco on the lid and Creme Royal inside the inner corner of the eye.
Next, I lined the upper lash line with Stylin’ and the lower line with a mix of Lucky Tom and Creme Royal.
To finish the eyes, I curled my lashes and added two layers of MAC Dazzlelash mascara (it happened to be nearby).
Now, for meow lips… (couldn’t resist)
I lined them with Pink Treat Cremestick Liner topped off with a layer of Cute-Ster Lipstick and some MAC Lipglass in Clear.
After blowing myself a kiss in the mirror I moved on to the cheeks.
I patted Fun & Games Beauty Powder Blush onto the apples of my cheeks and for some added glow swept Tahitian Sand Beauty Powder down the bridge of my nose, over my chin and on my upper cheeks.
The weather needs to hurry up and get warm because I can’t wait to wear this look with a bright summer dress.
Hello Kitty 4-EVA!
