Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette 5I’ve been enjoying an adorable palette lately, and I hadn’t gotten my review up yet when it suddenly went on sale for half price. So, of course I had to immediately share my review of the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette* with you so you could grab it from Sephora at this amazing discount.

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette 4I previously reviewed the Hello Kitty Ruby Compact Mirror, An Apple A Day Trio Lip Balm Set and Kawaii Nail Set, but my favourite product from the 40th anniversary releases is definitely the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette. It is a heavy duty cardboard that opens up to reveal the pop-up party, while the eyeshadows themselves slide out with the red bow.

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette 3I think the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette packaging is adorable, but not as functional as I would have liked. There are twenty shadows in a variety of neutrals and brights, but the shade names are only on the box and the plastic insert–which I do recommend keeping because of the slide-out packaging. The box also doesn’t slide out completely, leaving the top row of shadows a bit close to the top. I also had my bow fall off after using this palette, although there is still a tab to pull it out with.
Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette 2In terms of the shadows themselves, overall I really like the ones in the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette. There are enough neutral shades that I am comfortable with it, but it is definitely still a colourful palette with a lot of shadows and possibilities. In general, the shadows are buttery, sometimes the point of being a bit too soft, and quite shimmery with a few matte exceptions. There are a couple more chalky shades, and the shades aren’t incredibly long-lasting, but they are highly pigmented and blend wonderfully.

Playdate is a matte dark taupe grey that was slightly powdery but very pigmented. Dear Daniel was a standout shade for me, as it was a bright medium blue with shimmer. Milk was a basic satin white that works well on the brow bone. Celebrate was easily a favourite shade, it was a brown-ish burgundy satin shade that was very creamy and pigmented.

Kitty-Chan is another very unusual shade, a dark satin navy with rose gold sparkle. Apple Pie was a definite favourite, a light, satin peach with great pigmentation and an even application. Bow was another shade I loved, a rosy pink with a satin finish that unfortunately faded easily.

Kawaii was one of the less successful shades, a light satin teal that was a bit dry. The Original was another favourite, a very pigmented dark satin brown. Hot Cocoa was a very lovely light matte brown that is a very creamy neutral shade. Bright was an incredibly shimmery metallic white.

Anniversary was a matte black with green sparkle to it that applies a little uneven but might be nice for a night-time look. Cookie was another favourite neutral, a very creamy satin grey gold. Mimmy was a pale yellow that is definitely unique my collection and I have no idea when I would wear it, but it’s kinda cool. Chocolate Chip was a gorgeous golden bronze with a flawless, creamy and pigmented formula–an obvious favourite.

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette 2 Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow PaletteI used the four shadows on the far right of the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette (Celebrate, Bow, Bright and Chocolate Chip, along with a bit of Milk and Apple Pie–this sounds like a yummy party!) to create the above look, and I really love it. I was a little nervous about wearing a pretty red eyeshadow like Bow, but darkening out the crease with Celebrate and adding Bright to the inner corner made it very fall-appropriate. That’s Smashbox Cherry Smoke Be Legendary Bing Lipstick on my lips and L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush in Pink Lift on my cheeks if you’re interested.

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow PaletteOverall, the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette isn’t flawless, but I think it is a really nice palette with a ton of pigmented shades that blend well and are a great chance to experiment a little with colour. Plus, it’s pretty adorable, and only costs about $30 at the moment! What do you think of the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette?
