Hello Kitty Pen Pal Eyeliner Review, Swatches, Photos

I’m not much for liquid liner but if I’m going to go that route it might as well be with Hello Kitty to keep me company!

Check out the Hello Kitty Pen Pal Eyeliner!

Was it an 80’s thing to have a Japanese Pen Pal? Seriously, when I was like in the 2nd or 3rd grade my teacher had given us each a pen pal from Japan to write to. Anytime I talk about this most 80’s kids will agree that their teachers did the same damn thing ha!

Why do I suspect there was absolutely no pen pal and that our teachers probably just got us writing to some stranger that didn’t exist to improve our writing skills!

Fishy proof it wasn’t for realz:

  • We never got the name of the person we wrote to.
  • We never mailed the letters ourselves (they were handed in to our teacher and she “mailed them”).
  • We wrote them in English (Japanese children are exceedingly smart but back than I wonder if they could read English at an age of 7 or 8).
  • We never got replies!

Yes….fishiness all around here.

Anyway, Hello Kitty Pen Pal Eyeliner got me thinking about that. Can’t help but smile when I recall it.

This in ultra thin felt tip liquid liner that glides on fairly easily sans tugging. It creates a nice precise line if you’re hands aren’t as shaky as mine are. Put a liquid liner in my hands and POOF I get a case of the caffeinated jitters yo!

It sticks around pretty much all day but doesn’t take much to remove (simple soap and water will do it or a good oil based eye makeup remover).

Of course part of the appeal is the cute packaging. This is simple, understated Hello Kitty as it’s a white barrel with a small Hello Kitty image on the cap and “Hello Kitty” spelled out on the bottom half of the pen.

At $16 it’s not the cheapest liquid liner around but it is the cutest.

Available exclusively at www.Sephora.com

Got the fake pen pal woes?

No worries, we’ve all been had, took, and hoodwinked around here with that tall tale of pen pals from across the sea, I feel like my innocence has been robbed, SOB!

    Lol! that takes me back.did you have those leaflet type things where you ticked the box for the county you wanted a penpal in, Any one remember those?

    • the Muse

      OMG YES isis! I remember that! did your class by chance also do the balloon notes? where you wrote a message and they attached it to a balloon and released it into the air? it had the school address to write back…LMAO no REPLIEZ! FAIL!

  • isis

    No! we didn’t have those, Ireland’s an island you could spit across, they’d have probably ended up on oil rigs …maybe not the most suitable penpals for good convent school girls..LOL!

    I think our pen pals were from England because my 3rd grade teacher did an exchange there or something.

    I was never popular with the pen pals. They would usually start off with “i always wanted a pen pal from Arkansas.” and I would say no “AK” stands for Alaska, and never hear from them again.

    • the Muse

      LOL Kate! omg! that’s too cute ;-D! they were prejudice against Alaska ;D! hahaha! do you still live there!?
