You get:

  • Yummy Cookies Highlighter (pearlized finish light peach with a flip of silver)
  • Fun With Friends Blush (pearlized finish vivacious mid-tone warm pink)
  • Juicy Apple Eyeshadow (glitter sheer finish soft gold topped with gold glitter)
  • Sticker Sheet Eyeshadow (satin finish cool-toned taupe)
  • Bento Box Eyeshadow (pearlized finish true gunmetal)
  • KT Lipgloss (sheer finish light gold sprinkled with pink and gold glitter)
  • Ribbon Liquid Lipstick (matte finish rich blue red)

Unlike, the Colourpop Mama’s Apple Pie Set, the Hello Pretty Face Set actually has a solid mix of shades that work well together. The only shade I felt that didn’t quite belong was Bento Boy but aside from that the other shades all worked together to create one very pretty look.

I’ve already tried Colourpop’s eyeshadows, blushes, and highlighters but this is my first time trying out their Ultra Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick and Ultra Glossy Lip Lipgloss. Ultra Matte Lip did so surprise me! This was a lightweight, highly comfortable formula that sets to a matte long-wearing finish that doesn’t budge for a solid eight hours. This formula is runny but applies easily without being patchy or migrating during application. The formula is completely opaque and the color is a beautifully festive bright red with a blue undertone. It has no flavor nor any fragrance. I never felt it was terribly tight or drying during the wear nor did it flake up or crack through the wear. I was rather surprised as I expected it to be a moisture sucking formula but it wasn’t at all. Ultra Glossy Lip was delightful as well but laced with a ton of shimmer which gave it a frosty finish on my lips. It wore for a good four hours on me but didn’t have a sticky, tacky uncomfortable finish. The formula is thick yet applies evenly and smooth on my lips and felt lightly hydrating through the wear. It had no flavor nor any fragrance. Although laced with tons of shimmer it still wore nicely all its own but looked best applied as an overcoat on top of another lipstick. Below I wore it over Ultra Matte Lip in Ribbon and it gives the shade a very pretty shimmery and glossy finish.

One of the things I liked most in this collection was the Super Shock Cheek shade in Fun with Friends (I’m wearing it in the photo below) which is a rather delightful golden orange-y peach! This lit up my face with gorgeous luminous color. They describe it as a warm pink but on me it’s an orange-y peach. I won’t go into details about the formula as I’ve reviewed the Super Shock Cheek formula many times in the past. You can click here for a better review about the wear times, formula, texture, etc…!

Bento Box was the most pigmented eyeshadow shade in this collection where as both Sticker Street and Juicy Apple were the sheerest. I really liked Sticker Sheet a lot as it was a beautiful wash of color that looked natural on my lids without being too made up. Juicy Apple is more of an overcoat shadow which is how I wore it below over Sticker Sheet . This is a lot of shimmer but not a ton of color but it still adds a lovely wash of shimmer on bare lids and it looks really pretty over a variety of different eyeshadow shades especially browns or other neutrals.

Lastly this set also includes a highlighter shade which I actually didn’t use in my look below! I felt like the color dulled out the pretty glow from Fun with Friends so I didn’t use it on my look below. It has the same texture as the Super Shock Cheek Blush formula and a little more details and thoughts can be read about the highlighter formula in my review by clicking here.

You ever buy a makeup gift set and end up liking two items out of it and hating on a whole bunch of the other stuff? That’s the worst! I’m happy to say that the ColourPop x Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Set had a lot more loves than misses! I adored the blush, loved the shadows, and thought the liquid lip color was absolutely stunning. This is a set that’s well worth picking up!

    I so wish I could get ribbon separately! It has to be one of the most beautiful reds ever!

    • Ashley

      Yasss! Ribbon, ribbon, ribbon! Amazing red! I’m thinking I might buy the set just for THAT color, and give the rest away. Let’s hope CP singles it out for purchase!

      • Isabella Muse

        I sure hope they do individual products of it, I’d totally buy a backup!

    • Dana

      Me too! I cant say Ive ever liked or paid attention to Hello Kitty, but most of the shades used to just dont fit what I remember. It just seems dull and not fun for a cartoon inspiration.

    I also bought this set and will say that I definitely enjoy it (the reusable box is so cute!), but I really wish they’d been more creative with this collab. ;(
    I was keeping my fingers crossed for some fun shadow colors, and maybe even a liner too, but I feel all of the shadows were just…boring. I think Sticker Sheet is my fav and it’s the most mundane of all the shadows they offered. I thought for sure they’d do something bright and exciting! It seems like they’ve been backing off offering new liner shades as well. They don’t even have a new one in their holiday collection this year! If I remember right, I got at least two from last years, and I know there were even more than that. Sad sigh. 🙁
    I will say that they did some good things with the lip offerings! I don’t really wear much (if any) lipstick but I really, really love Ribbon, and it looks gorgeous with a little bit of KT on the center of the lips to give it that sparkly pop and dimension. Seems very season appropriate. I also snagged Konnichiwa and that’s tame enough that I’ll even get some wear out of it.
    I just really wish I’d snagged the bag! I keep going back to the site and thinking about buying more, but I know I shouldn’t be thinking about myself this time of year. Oh well!

    Also, I’m pretty sure this is the longest comment I’ve ever left on your blog after all these years I’ve been following it…lol.

    Totally unexcited about this. I thought there would be more colorful
    shadows. Thank you for the review. I’m over Colourpop
