I’m having a bit of an obsession with eye shadows lately. My
sister bought Colourpop’s Hello Kitty - Hello Pretty Kit
(the blue-red ultra matte lip), and graciously gave me the super shock
shadows, blush, & highlighter. I was thinking of doing a giveaway with
these… but they’re just too pretty to give away! I selfishly kept them and
couldn’t be happier because they’re beautiful! The Hello Pretty Kit comes with
2 lip products, 3 super shock shadows, 1 blush, and 1 highlighter. My sister
has the lip products, so they’ll be omitted from this post.
The three Super Shock Shadows that were included in this kit were Juicy Apple (sheer gold), Sticker Sheet (cool-toned taupe), & Bento Box (gunmetal).
true to its description. It’s very sheer.. almost to the point that I wish
it was more opaque. I can
definitely layer it and get the look I want, but with using my fingertip and a
brush to apply it, it seems like a lot of work. However, with the sheer
opacity, this might look amazing over other colours… so this has a love/hate
relationship with me at the moment.
a light shadow, but I found it to be very buildable. I love the fact that the
colour is more cool-toned as it goes great with other colours. It sets a nice
base, and then can build nicely into my crease.
I used Bento Box
a light hand because I wasn’t sure how it would apply. It is probably the most
opaque shade in the three Super Shock Shadows. However, you can use it very
light and build the colour as you need it. I also liked the shimmer in it – it wasn’t
over powering at all.
The blush and highlighter that were included in this kit are
Fun with Friends (mid-tone warm pink
blush) & Yummy Cookies (light
peach highlighter). They have such a unique texture; they’re powders but have a
cream-like texture. I was intrigued by this at first, but found them hard to
apply with a brush and much easier to just use my finger (especially for the
Fun with Friends
is a gorgeous pink blush. I was afraid it was going to be too much of a pop of
colour, but since the texture is almost cream-like, it applied nicely. It has a
bit of a shimmer, which doesn’t go unnoticed. I really liked it! Yummy Cookies
was almost made perfectly
to go with this blush. The colours compliment eachother so nicely.
