Last Chance: ColourPop x Hello Kitty Collection Swatches

    Still haven’t staked your claim in the ColourPop x Hello Kitty collection? Well, you’re in luck. The limited edition line has been extended— with new single shades available, previously only available in sets— so you have more time to get in on the pretty.

    The original Hello Pretty kit is still available for your best value at a marked down price of $35 (originally $42). It comes with three Super Shock Shadows, a blush, a highlight, an Ultra Glossy Lip and an Ultra Matte lip. It’s basically a whole look in a cute keepsake box.

    For the Eyes:

    Juicy Apple: sheer gold glitter shadow topper
    Sticker Sheet: matte taupe-y brown
    Bento Box: cool steel gray shimmer.

    For the Face:

    Fun with Friends: pretty universal peony pink
    Yummy Cookies: light peach highlighter with silver sheen

    For the Lips:

    Ultra Glossy Lip in KT: sheer light gold with pink and gold shimmer
    Ultra Matte Lip in Ribbon: rich blue toned red

    L to R: Juicy Apple, Sticker Sheet, Bento Box, Fun with Friends, Yummy Cookies, KT, Ribbon

    They just started selling all of the Super Shock Shadows from this set, plus the Ultra Mate Lip in Ribbon separately, so if you favor one over the other you can just grab what you like. But at the sale price, buying the set is definitely a money-saver.

    There are four other single Super Shock Shadows in the ColourPop x Hello Kitty collection:

    Rainbow: sheer silver and pink glitter shadow topper
    Friendship File: rosy beige shimmer
    Small Gift: peach pink with a pearl finish
    School Bus: deep navy blue with a pearl finish

    There are also two single Super Shock Cheek powders:

    School is Fun: champagne gold highlighter
    Coin Purse: bright cool-toned pink

    L to R: Rainbow, Friendship, Small Gift, School Bus, School is Fun, Coin Purse

    A quick note– I felt like these super shock shadows needed to be layered up for full opacity— so you can get a sheer wash of color or build layers for intensity. Like others in the permanent line, they are best applied using your fingers to grab the most pigment.

    The ColourPop x Hello Kitty collection brings, in my opinion, some of the best lip shades from a collaboration by far, and in several different finishes and formats. Whether you like matte, satin, or shimmer, there’s a lip in this line for you.

    Ultra Matte Lips:

    Milk Bottle: medium pink with neutral undertones.
    Mimmy: faded plummy mauve

    Ultra Satin Lips:

    Tiny Chum: grey-ish mauve
    Lock Diary: hot fuchsia

    Ultra Glossy Lips:

    Supercute: sheer pink with a ton of pink glitter
    Arigato: sheer hot pink with hot pink glitter
    Trinkets: sheer red with blue undertones and subtle glitter

    Lippie Stix:

    Konnichiwa: rosy pink
    Date Mate: cool fuchsia with a flat matte finish
    Let’s Play: bright red with pink shimmer

    I can’t say for sure when the collection will be pulled from ColourPop’s website— with the extension, they might just be selling while supplies last. Either way, these upcoming weeks are most likely your last chance at grabbing what you like from the line.

    I think the smartest purchases would be the lip products, but hey, I’m a lipstick junkie. I’m personally not head over heels with any of the shadow shades in this collection, so I’d go for what may be harder to find later on.

    Have you picked up anything from this collection yet?
