I have a confession to make…
I don’t know if the limited edition $25 Hello Kitty “Red Bow Beauty Diaries” holiday kit was made for kids or grownups.
But, uh, I don’t really care.
Is that wrong…?
I love this damned thing! And I don’t give a crap if I’m wearing the same makeup that little Susie is rocking to Brianna’s ninth birthday sleepover because — and here’s the kicker — there’s a bonafide letter from Hello Kitty inside the set!
Yeah, the actual kitty HERSELF.
For real though, I get the feels every time I read it, and I actually think it was written directly to me — Karen from Union City, California.
Diary, I think this set was made special for people who grew up loving Hello Kitty, because, truth be told, the makeup isn’t great. I’d say it’s just a step up from the pieces in a little girl’s toy makeup set.
While pigmented, the glitter liners rub off easily, and the lipsticks, gloss and cream eyeshadows are woefully sheer.
As for the pink hair mascara, it feels smooth when I put it on but turns crusty when it dries.
