Hello Kitty Beauty Sweet Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

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!

    Hey muse! Are you going to indulge in the cheek blush sticks from hello kitty? I almost got one, they look awesome.


    • 2/4/11 15:13 the Muse:

      I’m debating neturalgirl 2 shades are in my cart but I don’t use cream blush that much so it’s kinda a toss up if I need ’em versus OMG must have that cute packaging ;D!


  • 2/4/11 15:14 Cj:

    I got the ones in Apple and Pink Bow, I really wish I would of got the Peach instead of Pink Bow :/ The apple one is pretty nice but the pink one doesn’t give me any color payoff at all really. I also got one if the Big Smile glosses and the Apple Balm, Sadly I dont like the balm either, The consistency isn’t at all what I thought it was gonna be, it’s more like a gooey cream lol


    • 2/4/11 15:20 the Muse:

      ah cj! apple balm in my cart thanks for the heads up! I THINK I might like it ;-D as gooey cream well that sounds ace ha! ;-D return it hun, Sephora is so amazing about returns!


      • 2/4/11 15:28 Cj:

        Yeah I think I’m gonna return the pink gloss and balm and get the peach gloss ;D it looks really nice lol I’ve been really into peach colors lately.


        • 2/4/11 15:30 the Muse:

          me too! did you see the Miss Tangerine collection I featured? that had killer shades of corals, peaches, and orange! LOVEZ


          • 2/4/11 16:19 jayjay:

            I love the apple balm! I’m always in a rush to school and prefer the natural look so the apple balm always gives me that perfect nice tint to give my face color. Plus its super hydrating and smells great :)

          • 2/8/11 11:33 the Muse:

            i needs it jayjay and so cheap too!

  • 2/4/11 22:59 Rinny:

    The packaging is adorable, but I think I’ll pass on the HK makeup and just get the brushes/mirrors instead. A lot of the makeup from the collection seems to lack pigmentation :(


    • 2/8/11 11:14 the Muse:

      rinny not so much ;-D some stuff has ALOT of pigment 😀


  • 2/4/11 23:43 Vijaya:

    I bought a few Hello Kitty nail polishes and I’ll probably be buying some glosses and shadow sticks, as well. That eyeliner set is calling to me, even though I know I don’t need it.


    • 2/8/11 11:13 the Muse:

      same here vijaya the liner set looks darling 😀


  • 2/5/11 10:47 Girl Hearts Makeup:

    Gorgeous shades! 😀

    By the way Muse, I saw you reviewed Hello Flawless by Benefit and gave it a good review. I have very dry and sensitive skin, do you think it’d work well on me?


    • 2/8/11 11:03 the Muse:

      girl heart makeup I had no prob with it and my skin is pretty dry ;-D just prep well before use ;D!


  • 2/5/11 16:45 Lenna:

    The entire Hello Kitty collection is dangerous to me because I want all of it/. XD Haha, thanks for the review, now I definitely need these glosses, since they are cute and good!!


    • 2/8/11 11:00 the Muse:

      ha lenna tell me ’bout it :D!


  • 2/6/11 1:56 courtney:

    Also- Sephora has Hello Kitty perfume as a deluxe sample right now. Redeemed 100 of my points for it- smells nice! They’re going quick, so get yours now!


    • 2/8/11 10:56 the Muse:

      thanks courtney ;D


  • 2/6/11 9:03 Kerry:

    are these similar to the new cover girl nature luxe gloss balms?


    • 2/8/11 10:55 the Muse:

      these are less slicker kerry and more balm-y in texture


  • 2/6/11 11:43 Amee:

    sounds very yummy and the shades are also very pretty!!!!
    u knw wat one of my friend’s name is “charmmy”… :)


  • 2/6/11 11:46 mar:

    how do these compare to the covergirl balm gloss things?


    • 2/8/11 10:55 the Muse:

      the covergirl ones have a slicker formula mar. these run towards more balm-y


  • 2/8/11 3:40 Gia:

    I got one of these! And I love the subtle bright pink color it gives me but after about an hour it makes my lips feel all gunky and weird. It makes me mad because they are such pretty colors. And i like the fact that they are on the sheer side but still show up.


    • 2/8/11 9:36 the Muse:

      No probs with the wear gia but the application kinda was patchy and gross 😛
