Here kitty, kitty, kitty! This MAC collection has been talked about, whispered about, blogged about, and meowed about more than any other MAC collection in recent memory. Talk about anticipation! Will MAC’s Hello Kitty collection live up to all the hype though?
The collection features Hello Kitty Mild and Hello Kitty Wild products, including two shadow quads, glitter eyeliner (I accidentally typed litter eyeliner…I guess litterbox wouldn’t be an appealing color. Ha!), mascara, powder blush, beauty powder, eyelashes, lipstick, lipglass, tinted lip conditioner, pigment, glitter, and nail lacquer. There is also a line of Hello Kitty accessories like a brush set, bracelet, purse mirror, makeup bags, tote bag, and a stuffed Kitty.
I got an email from MAC on Saturday with a free shipping offer on a $60 purchase, so I skipped over to the site to see what kinds of Hello Kitty goodies I might be tempted by. Well, guess what? Bunches of items in this collections are already sold out, and I don’t know if they’ll be restocked or not since the Live Chat feature on the MAC site isn’t available on weekends so I couldn’t ask. I’m afraid this is a case of once it’s gone, it’s gone. My advice would be to grab what you want in this collection without delay, either through the web site or a retail store if you’re fortunate enough to live near one as I do.
If you think about hot pink, lavender, silver and deep sea green, you’ll have a picture of the colors in this collection. They may not be for everyone, but that’s the fun of MAC. If you wait five minutes, something new will come along that you’ll love. Plus, who knows? You may have never thought about a lavender lipstick, but when you try it, you find that it’s perfect for you. Some of these colors and products wouldn’t be appropriate for my office life, but there are some standouts in the collection that I want. You KNOW how I love pink, so this collection is right up my alley!
- Hello Kitty Lipglass in Nice Kitty (sheer neon pink with blue pearl) and Fast Friends (sheer bright intense purple with pearl).
- Hello Kitty Lipstick in Strayin’ (frosty mid-tone pink).
- Hello Kitty Blush in Tippy (mid-tone blue pink).
Are these the cutest containers you ever saw? I’m hissed off that I waited too late to get the nail lacquer, the tote, the purse mirror and the lip conditioner!
It looks like MAC Hello Kitty is a hit! Get your favorites before they’re gone! Even if you don’t need anything, or you’re watching your beauty product budget, at least go check out the collection video! It’s fun and mystical in kind of a MAC Alice in Wonderland way, but the sado-masochistic Chippendale’s guys with the giant Hello Kitty heads scare me a little! See what you think!
