On counter today! M.A.C’s new Hello Kitty Colour Collection

Calling Courteney Love, Lindsay Lohan and everyone else who believes you’re never too old to appreciate a round-faced cartoon kitten with a great line in handbags and hair bows…


M.A.C’s Hello Kitty Colour Collection arrives today. The playful make-up range includes blushes, eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, nail polishes, glosses, eye liners and more, and each piece is emblazoned with the iconic kitty in a black and white design.


Some of the colours are scarily bright – pink and turquoise I’m talking about you – but overall the quality of the products means they go on sheer and are brilliant for building, blending and generally mucking about with. Plus, there are some softer corals, coffees and gold within the range that are positively wearable. Try Beauty Powder Blush in Fun & Games, £14.68, for the perfect, peachy cheek with a touch of shimmer.

I also loved On The Prowl Nail Lacquer, £7.83, a light, creamy grey that’s nicely on-trend, and somehow Kitty Power Pink Glitter Eye Liner, £12.72 – yes, that is a sparkly pink eyeliner – has worked its way in to my make-up bag.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. For die-hard Hello Kitty fans, there are accessories, including make-up bags, key chains and a 14-inch Hello Kitty doll, as well as Swarovski-crystal emblazoned compacts and lip-glosses – part of an even more girly-sparkly ‘Kitty Kouture’ range.

Who’d have thought one little kitty could provide a gal with so much fun?
