Colourpop x Hello Kitty

If you're a fan of Colourpop and follow them online, then you would have seen that they recently announced a Hello Kitty collaboration, that was being released on November 1st!


I placed my order on November 1st! They emailed me on November 4th to say my order had shipped, and I received my order on November 9th. Not too bad considering I'm in Ontario, Canada, and they ship from California!

The items they released for the collaboration were eyeshadows, liquid lipsticks in their satin, glossy, and metallic finishes. Highlighters, blushes, and lippie stix. Also there were some kits created which included colours specific to those sets.












I decided to try out Mama's Apple Pie (shadow and pigment kit) Coin Purse (blush) and a couple of the lippies. So, let's get swatching!

First up! Look how cute the packaging is! It's shiny blue, with a ton of Hello Kitty bows! This is packaging I want to keep, so I won't be tossing it like I do with pretty much everything else! (Except my palettes.. I always keep that packaging. Am I the only one!?)

Mama's Apple Pie - Shadow and Pigments Kit
Ah, I just love the little Colourpop x Hello Kitty piece that slides off! Everything is just so cute!
This is the super shock shadow kit, and it contained 4 shadows.
Top left: Rainbow (glitter sheer finish white with highlights of silver and pink glitter)
Top right: Friendship File (metallic finish warm peachy beige dusted with silver and pink glitter)
Bottom left: Small Gift (pearlized finish mid-tone peachy pink)
Bottom right: School Bus (pearlized finish deep navy blue)

I do have swatches for these, but I will include them right after this next product!

Super Shock Cheek Blush in Coin Purse
This is looking really orange-ish for some reason, but I can assure you that it's a pink blush. It is described as a matte finish, bright cool-toned rosy pink on the website, and when you see the swatch below you will agree.

I think rainbow will make a good highlighter and eyeshadow. I really like friendship file as well. These all have a creamy texture, especially the blush in coin purse. I've never used such a creamy blush before so it was shocking, but I like that it can be sheered out, or built up.

Ultra Satin Lip in Lock Diary
This is described as a satin finish saturated fuchsia. I love the little bows on the cap! See below for a swatch!

Lippie Stix in Konnichiwa and Date Mate
I really like the lippie stix because they are just like lipstick. They come in many different finishes such as matte, glossy, sheer. And they are super affordable as well. I decided I'm keeping the packaging for these because the writing definitely does rub off if you put it in a makeup bag.
Konnichiwa - Creme finish mid-tone cool blue pink
Date Mate - Matte X finish vibrant cool-tone fuchsia

Here's a swatch of the lip products that I ordered:
Out of all of the lip products, I really like Konnichiwa. It's not too bright or dark, and is just the perfect every day lip colour (for me at least) - it also is a creme finish, so it isn't too drying or doesn't move around a lot.

Overall, I think there are some fun shades in the collection and some very wearable shades as well. There really is something for everyone. I think the packaging is super cute, but just have to be aware that Colourpop writing on the lippie products do wear off if you are storing them in a makeup bag, or carry case. And as always, the prices are affordable. Colourpop also has free international shipping offers on orders over $50!
