Hello Kitty x Shu Uemura
It feels like ages since we last saw a Hello Kitty makeup collaboration, but the wait for Sanrio fans is finally over with this new, exclusive Shu Uemura collection.
Taking a step back from her cute image, this collection features Hello Kitty undergoing a rock and roll transformation. Time to expand our Hello Kitty collection with this upcoming special makeup release.
The Hello Kitty x Shu Uemura makeup collection will have you covered from the time you put on makeup to when you remove them, featuring makeup items such as eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, liquid foundation and also cleaning oil.
At first glance, you might mistake the eye shadow palette for a mini bag. While it’s not the latter, the cutely packaged eyeshadow palette has a cushy Hello Kitty’s red ribbon detail on the outside.
Doubling as a fashion item, you can sling it over your shoulder by using the golden chain, removing the need to pack it in a makeup pouch.
Opening it up, you’ll find 10 eye shadow shades, with both matte and shimmery finishes. As part of the rock and roll theme, the shades are bolder and darker ‒ perfect for a girl’s night out at the bar.
It retails at $123.
For those who prefer a more compact eye shadow palette, there’s also one with 6 romantic shades ‒ great to wear for going out with bae.
All of them have a pearly and shimmery finish and they come in a square packaging with a mirror on the inside.
It retails at $98.
You can never have too many lip products and in this collection, there are 3 types of lipsticks and 1 lipgloss.
All of them come in packaging with the motifs of Hello Kitty, lightning bolts and stars.
The first lipstick will definitely grab the attention of party lovers as it comes with a glitter texture for extra bling. It even has motifs of Hello Kitty’s ribbon embossed on it.

Playing on traditional shapes of lipsticks, you’ll find the one on the left cut in precise angles. It has a silky smooth application and 3 shades to choose from ‒ VIP auburn, brick fever and red high heels.

The lipstick on the left retails at $48 and the one on the right is priced at $44.
Lipstick lovers who are fans of MLBB shades will be thrilled about these lip glosses too.
