I had to have this Hello Kitty. I wasnt sure. Cause the price is a bit high for what it is. But once I got mine..LOVE IT !! Its so cute and different than all the Hello Kitty plush you normally see. I love those too. But this one is just adorable. Its not very big and because of its color and design it doesnt look like a little kids toy. Im really glad that I got this. If you are a Hello Kitty fan..you will love this doll !!
Wow..this bag is so much nicer in person ! MAC should put more pics up the of inside of the bags. Also list the dimensions. Really cute bag with very functional compartments that can be removed. Has the brush compartments as well. I am really glad that I got this bag. Its going to hold most of my makeup. Its very good quality as well. Love the MAC Hello Kitty line !
I gave in and bought this after seeing it at the MAC store. I have read some negative things about the brushes. But I thought they were nice and easy to travel with because of their size. Granted..Im not a MAC brush person. Most of my brushes are Smashbox,BE, Michael Maron and Aloette. So its possible that for MAC they arent the best. But I like em. I think Im going to use the HK cup on my desk to hold pens and pencils. Since I keep my brushes in my makeup bag. Im glad got one of these sets.
Accessories -MAC - Hello Kitty Collection- Medium Makeup Bag

I really love this bag. Its so cute. Love the hot pink lining. Like that it has a little side part that you can put brushes or things you want to keep seperate. Its not a zip compartment though. I got this at the MAC counter because no one had the dimensions listed on line. So couldnt tell the size. Glad I got to see this one and the small one in person. Because the small one is quite small. It can hold a few makeup items. The medium can actually hold a good bit. Great for travel when you just take exactly what you will use. Im going to use it in my purse for makeup, meds, hair stuff. All the little things we carry around . I ordered the Vanity Case from MAC , havent gotten it yet. Hoping that one will hold most of my things at home. Really cute bags. I am a big Hello Kitty fan and there are alot of makeup bags by Sanrio. Ive had some of em. But the MAC ones have more of a grown up look and feel to them. Which I really like. They are a bit pricey but think they are worth it. Nice quality.
Eyeliner -MAC - Hello Kitty Collection Eyeliner- Her Glitz

I was so disappointed that this didnt work for me. I tried it on my hand in the store and it looked great. Let it set..rubbed it..stayed put. So I bought it. But when I got it home and applied it to my eyes. It wasnt as pretty. I dont know if the one I got home was just not right or what. But it was very thin and watery in texture. It really didnt look like much of anything on. Even tried to apply a second coat. Just didnt show up. I left it on and did notice that the glitter in it also moved around a bit. I hated to return it but I did. Picked up another HK lipglass instead. For me I can get much prettier results with some of my eye pencils. Hope you guys have better luck with these. Lots of pretty colors available.
I got this one because I tried it under the Sweet Strawberry gloss at the MAC counter and it looked great. I really like the texture of this lipstick. The color is alot more transparent on than it looks in the tube. The packaging is absolutely adorable. This was another item that I hadnt planned on getting from the collection as I usually wear bronze tones. I gave it a try and really loved it. Its definitely not too dark or bright at all. This collection is very deceiving in the packaging. The colors come across bright and bold. But when you apply them, they arent nearly as bright. Im surprised at how many things I have gotten after trying them. Of course, the Hello Kitty packaging makes it all the better !
I picked up this one on my 3rd trip to MAC. I sort of ignored it my first 2 trips because it really looked too hot pink in the tube. When I tried it out..I was really surprised that it looked so pretty. Not too dark or bright at all. Im 43 and I rocked the bright lips back in the 80's, but its not my best look now. This isnt that look at all. I think one of the biggest surprises for me with the Hello Kitty MAC collection has been that they are alot more wearable than they appear in their containers. Definitely give them a try. At first I really only expected one or two things to work for me because of my age and coloring. Ive ended up with more than a few things. Im a big Hello Kitty fan and the packaging is so cute! Silly for a 43 year old..but it makes me happy just looking at em ! :)
Wow..this one is beautiful. I hadnt planned on getting it. Once I tried it at the counter I fell in love with it. Perfect with the Fun + Games blush too. What I like about this one is that even thought its sheer and lighter in color, it holds its own. It comes across very nicely alone. For me some lighter glosses are just too washed out to be worn alone. I thought this one would be one of those. But its perfect alone or over lipstick. I just love it. Packaging is adorable !
Blush -MAC - Fun & Games - Hello Kitty [DISCONTINUED]

This was a no brainer for me. Since I usually wear warmer colors. Love the packaging. Its adorable. This blush goes on very smooth and the color can be built up. I applied too much at first and it looked way too orange. Its definitely a lovely peachy pink blush with just the right amount of shimmer. Not glitter..not sparkle. Im 43 and can pull off glitter. This isnt that type of blush. Honestly for me this blush is what I had hoped Nars infamous Orgasm would be. That one had way to much shimmer for me. If you like a nice peachy blush, you will love this one.
I resisted buying this one because I thought it wasnt enough color for me alone. But on my 3rd trip to the MAC counter, I gave in. I wore it alone that day and ended up really liking it. Its the kind of gloss that you can just throw on. Neutral looking with anything. But I agree with others that it really is great over lipstick. Especially over all those too dark or too dull lipsticks that we all have. So Im glad I went for it. Nice wearable gloss.
I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Looked at it on the MAC website, but thought it would be too intense or dark. Its not. Such a lovely wearable berry shade with pretty shimmer. Im 43 and usually wear more bronze tone shades. But when I tried this on at the store it really looked so great. Not too glittery for someone my age. A very flattering color. Oh and lets not forget..the adorable Hello Kitty packaging. Dont let the colors in this collection scare you off. They are totally not as intense once applied. Sweet Strawberry is beautiful.
I like the way this smells in the bottle. Loved the way it smells on one of my friends. But on me it just doesnt work. I dont get as much tuberose as previous reviewers have mentioned. On me it just smells way too fruity. As with all fragrances chemistry is half the battle. When this is on someone whose chemistry works with it..beautiful. So I would definitely say give it a try. Try it on your skin. It develops totally differently than when its just sprayed on a test strip. Some fragrances dont vary as much on the skin. I think this one does. The bottle to me is adorable. Very girly and pretty. Think it would look nice on a dresser, vanity..whatever. They make alot of companion products in this scent also which is very nice for layering. So try it for yourself. You just might love it on you.
I fell in love with this new twist on No 5. Love the new lighter fresher scent. The bottle is sleek and pretty. I just had to have it. Sadly, I ended up having to return it because after wearing it for 2 days. It had absolutely no staying power. I tried spraying it on my clothing too..nothing. For some reason an hour later..I could only barely smell it if I actually had my nose on my wrist. I am so disappointed. Ive never actually returned a fragrance after trying it. But with the price of this one. I just couldnt justify keeping it. I love Chanel fragrances. Allure is my all time favorite. I hope others have better luck with this very pretty fragrance. If not maybe Chanel will have to figure out a way to keep its lightness while still having longevity too.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
lilysdoll 10/14/2008 4:55:00 PM
This is my absolute favorite cleanser. Works really well to remove makeup without stripping your skin. Doesnt really have a scent. Has a decent consistency. Not really a foaming cleanser so if you like bubbles. This isnt that. Although, I think Philosophy now makes a Purity foaming. I have purchased the jumbo size of this off of QVC. It comes with a pump. Making it easy to use. For me this is the perfect cleanser.
I really like Destiny. Its a very soft all white floral. To me if definitely comes across a bit powdery. But not too much. Its a very easy to wear fragrance. I wouldnt describe it as a sexy scent. I wear Chanel Allure alot and think of that as a more sexy scent. Destiny to me if a clean wear anywhere scent. Its definitely feminine and fresh. I have alot of the layering products and they are very nice as well. I buy them off of HSN or off of Marilyn Miglin's website. Her website is very nice and the service is great too. I would say give this one a try. Would make a nice gift to even for a lady who isnt so into perfumes. Since its such a delicate and easy to wear scent.
