Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Compact Mirror & Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Palette Summer 2012

A few more pieces of Hello Kitty Summer 2012 are popping up at Sephora today. I already introduced you to the Big Bow Fragrance that recently launched and looks like they are also gifting us with a new palette.

Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Compact Mirror $19

Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Palette $36


  • Pearlized Golden Cream,
  • Matte Chocolate Brown
  • Glittery Nude
  • Pearlized Soft Blue
  • Iridescent Purple
  • Glittery Charcoal Black
  • Pearlized White
  • Glittery Soft Pink

What do you think?

Personally, I can safely skip. As cute as the collection is I’ve noticed that the eyeshadows on these palettes are just horrid. Too chalky with a frosty, unflattering finish.

I even find I ignore them when they go on sale, that’s pretty unusual for me, but hey, might as well splurge on something I know I’ll use rather than sub-par shadow formulas in cute packaging.

Maybe I’m reaching my beauty junkie maturity finally, the stage where cute packaging doesn’t tempt and tease me as much as it used to.

Feel free to pat me on the back for that.

The Hello Kitty Beauty Summer 2012 Collection is available now at Sephora.com and will launch shortly at Sephora stores.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    i am not a fan of the hello kitty products themselves – they arent that great as compared to another cute-sy brand (tokidoki) …. but those compact mirrors are cute. i woud buy those!

  • Wonderland

    I sadly agree that I can skip this compact. I love hello kitty and I was so excited when I heard they were coming out with makeup but sadly I have been able to skip most of the compacts too. The only palette that I couldn’t resist was the memoirs of the kitty palette which I actually love. I love the cherry blossom design and I actually like the eyeshadows a lot.

      i love that palette wonderland but didn’t indulge, shades were a little too light/pastel for me sadly but the blush looked lovely ;-D!

  • Quinctia

    I’m going to get one of those mirrors eventually, but there hasn’t been a design yet that wowed me enough!

  • Tavia

    Hey….pls don’t show anymore of this….i don’t know how much longer I can take it. Btw what’s going on with that reply to my e-mail?

    • the Muse

      hi tavia…I get abut 100-150 emails daily 😀 sometimes it’s hard getting through them all, tweeted you back a reply saying as soon as I sort through I’ll reply as soon as possible ;-D

    The polka dots are a kind of bland design. I feel like if I looked hard enough I could find knockoff compacts like that in an Asian beauty store.
