i just came to say hello.

There is nothing better than receiving a bag from Sephora! For my birthday a few weeks ago, my sister handed me that signature black bag. Inside, was the Say Hello Palette from the Hello Kitty collection! I was super excited about this, because I love Hello Kitty and had been wanting to try something from the makeup line for a while. I have been trying this out for the last little bit - here are my thoughts!


Sugar Plum, Sweet Plum, Raindrop, Goodnight Dreams.

 I love these colours! The second purple shade and the gray are both really pretty! The colours in this palette are very soft and girly, but the gray and black help add some drama to them! Sweet Plum is my favourite of the colours, for sure! It has a nice shimmer to it, as does the black shade. The eyeshadows aren't overly pigmented, but are good quality - very soft!
 
Snowflake, Strawberry Cookie, Pink Confetti, Sweet Plum.

I tried to do swatches of the lip glosses, but they all looked essentially the same! They look really cute in the packaging, but are all just basic clear glosses. The Sweet Plum one is glittery though, which is quite cute. They smell really sweet though, which is a nice touch! These glosses are a bit on the sticky side, however. Not my favourite lip glosses in the world, but certainly a nice addition to the palette. 

Overall, I really like this Hello Kitty palette, but I don't love it the way I hoped I would.  
 
Have you tried anything from the Hello Kitty makeup line? What are your thoughts?

  5. I've never tried Hello Kitty makeup, I didn't even know they had it. Hello Kitty is not really popular when I live, no one really sells it much!
