Ok, let start by saying this,… I am not that Hello Kitty crazed MUA..at all!!! However, some things are just a practice in cuteness and this is that item for me!! Lol! This is my latest acquisition that I accidentally found at Marshall’s…Hello Kitty Makeup Brush Kit and 6 individual Hello Kitty Makeup Brushes (3 in the package).
Kitty is all shiny with her nickle plated body and the nickle plated handled individual brushes, it’s just too cute and I had to get it!! Question is now that I’ve gotten her will I use those sweet little brushes? And for sure she is on display to look at and looks kinda cool amongst all my Collectors Item Makeup kits and paraphernalia.
Ok, so for real this is a review right? Well, here’s my spin on the Hello Kitty Brushes. I probably will never use these because, they’re just too cute and I don’t want to mess them up (guess that’s why it’s a collectors item).
Never thought of myself as a limited addition collection collectors item kind of person. I’ve always been practical about makeup because its actually something I’m going to use in my kit or I usually don’t toss with it. Anyway this one caught my eye and was well priced so I took the Hello Kitty plunge!
Apparently M•A•C was on a Hello Kitty craze too. Dunno, I totally missed that one and it was about 5 years ago they put out that collection. M•A•C is pretty funny with their kitschy novelty limited addition makeup collections. So if you missed it like I did here it is…
Hello Kitty, whom many learned last week is a girl and not a cat, may be THE QUEEN of Japan’s cute characters (and yes I admit she’s cute). Created 40 years ago (40 years ago, I can’t imagine!), Hello Kitty is made up of just a few simple strokes: two dots for eyes and a tiny circle for a nose, and no mouth. In contrast to expressive American characters such as Mickey Mouse and Garfield, Hello Kitty doesn’t show emotions, and the simplicity has attracted fans from children to street fashion devotees.
An article in the Los Angeles Times last week created an Internet firestorm when it explained that the character is not a cat; many insisted she must be. Despite her cat-like ears and whiskers, she is a “cheerful girl with a gentle heart,” says the official website of her theme park, Sanrio Puroland. Born Kitty White in the suburbs of London, she weighs the same as three apples, enjoys baking cookies and dreams about becoming a poet or pianist.
