Colourpop's Hello Kitty Collab Caters to Grown-Up Fangirls
I might never grow out of my adoration for Sanrio stuff; the brand is so tied to childhood memories of my sisters and I spending our humble allowances on gum, pencils, notepads, and stuffed toys at our local store. Even the way they wrapped each new treasure: pink printed bags sealed with a gold sticker and — if you were lucky — a sweet charm. And certainly we weren't the only ones enamored of Hello Kitty, Keroppi (who I could draw to a T), Spottie Dottie, and the rest of the adorable gang, considering Sanrio has a massive fan base that spans the globe.
And for the many Hello Kitty lovers who might be too grown-up to sport her signature bow or splurge on stickers or plush toys (not that I'm judging if you do), LA cosmetics brand ColourPop now has a collection of on-trend products like super-matte lip colors and shimmery shadows in shades pulled directly from the HK world. The company is already insanely popular for their cruelty-free, playful pieces, especially among the beauty blogger community (fun fact: ColourPop is owned by the same company as Kylie Cosmetics!), so as you can imagine the limited edition collection has already been flying off the digital shelves. If there's a Hello Kitty lover on your holiday list, you'll probably want to snatch up the recently restocked goodies like this makeup bag for $12 and this Hello Pretty kit that includes a flawless red matte liquid lipstick, a gold/pink glitter gloss, three versatile eye shadows, a peachy highlighter, and warm pink blush for just $42. Shop the whole collection here — while it lasts — and pay homage to your favorite cartoon cat in a glamorously grown-up way.
