What do you get when you cross Hello Kitty and Sephora? A marriage most wonderful!
The most adored and iconic kitty celebrates 50 years of making young and old girl’s and heck even a few guys smile. And now you’ll have something even more to smile about as Hello Kitty launches her own Beauty Collection at everyone’s favorite beauty source, Sephora.
My first venture into Hello Kitty Beauty-Land starts with her Sweet Gloss.
Collector’s be ware, this could get dangerous!
A gloss-balm stick that provides long-lasting hydration with a natural wash of color.
Let’s me honest for a second here…..part of the appeal of this gloss balm would be the ultra sweet packaging. Hello Kitty Sweet Gloss comes housed in an off white tube featuring Hello Kitty’s cute little face on the top and her hand scripted name on the bottom barrel with multiply images of her face surrounding it. Juvenile? Perhaps to some but to fans it simply reeks KAWAII! I absolutely adore the packaging and embrace it fully. Cute makeup rules supreme in my makeup world.
Inside you’ll find a heavily fragranced glossy lip balm. As soon as you take the cap off a sweet, fruity candy-like strawberry and apple scent will hit you full in the face. And yes, it’s as tasty as it smells!
The product has a smooth, glossy finish with a hydrating balm-y feel. It wraps lips in a nice moisturizing balm with a kiss of color. Both shades I tried accented lips with just the right amount of color to enhance my own lip shade. If you favor a more natural look, these will appeal without a doubt!
The shades I tried were Peachy and Charmmy. Charmmy turned into a fast fav and left a kiss of rose to my lips where as Peachy was a lighter touch of sheer peach.
Each is $16 which is a touch high for the amount you get however the cute packaging might sway you into embracing that higher price tag!
- Anyone who likes a more natural lip look!
- Those who like tasty lip balms (This is so sweet and delicious)!
- Those who want a kiss of color but nothing dramatic or overly bold.
- Those wanting a balm they can use as a touch up throughout the day!
- Hello Kitty fans and lovers, DUH!
- Anyone sensitive to highly fragranced and flavored lip products.
I got two of these to try out but I can easily see myself heading in for a few others. I liked the overall feel of the product and felt the quality was there so you’re not only buying into packaging here, you’re also getting good performance glossy balm for lips. Overall, the balm will appeal to those that are young at heart and those who favor cute makeup products plus it goes without saying that Hello Kitty fans will squeal over this.
Quite a nice one and deserves a Muse Approval!
Available now at www.Sephora.com and at Sephora stores.
