I have a face of the day for you including lots of product photos, information and review for the Parisienne palette and Violet Apple Balm from the exclusive Sephora Hello Kitty line!
I used the following products:
Parisienne Palette ($36) – This delightful palette includes new pastel shades for eyes and cheeks in a three-tiered Hello Kitty shaped compact topped with a lilac bow. On the outside, the charming Mon Amour pastel print features illustrations of Parisian city streets and landmarks, offering the chicest way to touch up in style. Four harmonious Charmmy eyeshadows in pearlized creamy beige, glittery dark brown, matte bright purple and matte blue/gray offer a range of shades for a sophisticated eye look. One silky powder blush in pearlized medium pink creates perfectly flushed apple cheeks that look très magnifique on any skin tone.
How cute is this palette? I want to carry it around with me just so I can pull it out of my purse and show it off.
These are the four eyeshadow colors in the top half of the palette with the mirror.
Beautiful pink blush with shimmer on the bottom of the palette.
This photo is to show you how the palette opens to reveal both the shadows and the powder.
The color payoff was better than the reviews I had read. The purple was a tad patchy but with a patting motion while applying I got the coverage I wanted.
I also used the following on my lips…
Apple Balm ($10) – Four juicy shades of rich, glossy balm provide exceptional hydration and amazing color payoff with a lipstick-like intensity. Lightweight and non-sticky, the formula is infused with Hello Kitty’s signature ingredients: Strawberry Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Apple Extract to soothe and soften the skin while providing anti-oxidant protection. Select from Watermelon (peachy pink), Gumdrop (bubblegum pink), Citrus (tangerine orange) and Violet (grape purple), each available in a collectable apple-shaped pot.
It is like a little honey pot where the top pops off and you need to use your finger or an lip brush to apply.
I am a Hello Kitty / Sephora lover so it is hard for me to say bad things about the products. Are they absolutely positively 100% perfect? Probably not. Do I still love them? Yes.
My only issue was the slight patchiness in one of the four shades. I had no issues with the other three.
Here is the “face of the day” I created using the palette and the lip gloss…
Never thought I’d say it but I LOVE purple lip gloss thanks to this Apple Balm.
The Hello Kitty Mon Amour collection will be available for a limited time beginning February 2011 in all Sephora stores, as well as by calling 1-877-SEPHORA or logging on to sephora.com via computer or smartphone.
