Confession time: I’ve never really understood the obsession with Hello Kitty. It’s just not something I’ve ever connected with. Too jaded, maybe. But what I do go crazy for is amazing pigmentation in eyeshadow. So when I saw amazing swatches for the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette, I got curious, and when I needed to make a Sephora order to get my birthday gift, I chose this palette as my birthday treat.
This palette features 20 eyeshadows in a variety of shades, in fancy cardboard packaging.
The top of the palette opens up to reveal a pop-up Hello Kitty scene, while the actual shadows are in a tray that pulls out.
As you can see, the palette features a wide variety of colours, both matte and shimmery. There are enough neutrals to satisfy most users, as well as even bright shades to satisfy more adventurous users (i.e. me).
The shadow names are only on the plastic insert, so it is handy to keep that. Not only does it have the names, but it also helps protect the shadows as you move the tray in and out of the packaging.
I don’t even know where to start with my commentary on the swatches. Basically I need to just scream that these are awesome, with and without primer. There really are no duds here, although a few of the brighter colours do perform better with primer.
Overall, I am so in love with this palette. By that I mean the shadows themselves. The packaging is a bit bulky and awkward, and if I was ever to depot something, I’d start with this palette.
This palette isn’t available online anymore, and I’m not sure about in stores, but if you do see it, I’d definitely recommend grabbing it. You won’t be disappointed.
This is the part where I normally post a bunch of LOTD photos, but since there are so many colours, I don’t want to overload the post. Check back on Sunday for a special LOTD round-up using the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette.
