Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eye Shadow Palette

When I buy cosmetics one of my favorite things to purchase is eye shadow. I love changing up my eye makeup with the seasons to match my mood and style. This holiday Sephora has released some gorgeous palettes to diversify and enhance your makeup collection!

The Pop-Up Party Hello Kitty eye shadow palette from the brand's limited edition 40th anniversary collection is sure to excite all the makeup lovers on your holiday list! This cute, iconic little kitty is a adored by women of all ages and the palette is packaged in an eye catching box that opens to reveal a fun pop up display!

The shadows sit in a tray which pulls out to display 20 dazzling shades all named after Hello Kitty’s favorite things such as apple pie, hot cocoa and chocolate chip.  



The shades in this palette are gorgeous and range from pink, purple, navy, gold, teal, taupe, blue, bronze and more! The collection of hues includes some of my favorite color trends and has enough variety to compliment many preferences, styles and skin tones.


Some of shadows feel slightly textured but overall I found them to be quite soft, smooth and buildable. The pigmentation is vivid although some shades are more saturated than others and the finishes range from: metallic, satin, neutral and matte. I like how easy the pigments are to blend, mix and match to create looks for every occasion.


When the shadows are applied lightly you can achieve subtle coverage but if you’re like me and prefer bold color you can layer them heavily for more intensity and glamour. I recommend using a good primer to enhance the color.

The shadow last all day without creasing or fading and I didn't find them to be chalky or have much of an issue with fall-out.


The tray of shadows doesn't pull completely out of the box which would have been nice but I think this palette has great versatility, gorgeous color range and I like the quality. You can find this collection at Sephora, the palette retails for $62 CAD.

    1. I know! I think because the palette looks so fun and cute people may assume that it's all about packaging rather than quality but I think the shadow is great! With a primer I didn't have any issue with fading.

    1. The colors are very pretty, I can see myself using the palette often. I think its more about lighting with the photos, I don't have a fancy camera or lens, I just try to get up close, make sure everything is in focus and use direct lighting. Sometimes I take tons of photos before I get a few that I like but I'm picky!

  5. I was really wondering about this palette since past hello kitty kits have had not-so-great shadows in them. The quality of this palette looks so much better though! And that packaging is so adorable!
