So the other day I was checking through Temptalia (a great resource for my fellow high-end makeup junkies by the way) and I noticed something wonderful. Something fabulous. The words 'Hello Kitty' and 'M.A.C.' very close to each other. M.A.C. Cosmetics has officially released, as of last week in stores and counters, the Hello Kitty collection. There will also be a three-piece special edition Swarovski-encrusted Kitty Kouture collection available in March. I'm totally willing to blow $90+tax on the compact. It's refillable like all of the other compacts. So excited for the month of March now. What's this you say? It's too expensive? Pretentious? No.


From WWD:
"The Hello Kitty offerings fall into two collections: the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and the more high-end Hello Kitty Kouture. The bulk of the items are in the former category: six shades of lipstick with names like Fashion Mews and Strayin’, each $14; six Lipglass shades, each $14; and two tinted lip conditioners, $14.50 each; two eye shadow palettes, which each contain four shades and retail for $38; two shades of pigment are $19.50 each, and two Reflects Glitter stockkeeping units — one blue, one pink — are $17.50 each. Four Glitter Eye Liners, each $16.50, two shades of Beauty Powder, each $22; three shades of nail polish, each $11; a black mascara, $12, and false lashes, $12, round out the color offerings. Shades range from pinks and turquoises to lavenders and greens."

And now just a few pictures from the original Hello Kitty collection mentioned above:

I'll be purchasing a bit of this collection and will do a review of the color collection a little later on.
