Colourpop Hello Kitty - Hello Pretty Kit

I’m having a bit of an obsession with eye shadows lately. My sister bought Colourpop’s Hello Kitty - Hello Pretty Kit specifically for Ribbon (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).

Juicy Apple is 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.

Sticker Sheet is 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 with 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 highlighter).

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.
