Update on MAC Hello Kitty Collection

Not long ago, I've mentioned about the possible MAC Hello Kitty collection in an earlier post. This is an update on this limited-edition collection. It has been confirmed (yay!) that the MAC & Hello Kitty collaboration will be released in February, 2009. It is great news for MAC devotees and Hello Kitty fans!

According to
Specktra, there will be a couture inspired, jewel laden compact housing a mystery powder and featuring Hello Kitty. I do not have the information on the rest of this collection. If you have heard any rumors about this collection, please feel free to keep me posted :-D

MAC Hello Kitty Collection

Updated on December 21th, 2009:

According to
WWD, the limited-edition Hello Kitty collection will be launched at MAC's website on February 10th, 2009, and will be available at North American stores on February 12th. For all the overseas coveted fans, this collection is set to be released worldwide in March 2009. However, a waiting list for this highly-raved collection will be available at MAC's website on January 7th, 2009 .

The Hello Kitty collection collaborated between MAC Cosmetics and
Sanrio features Hello Kitty Colour Collection and Hello Kitty Kouture.

The Hello Kitty Colour Collection includes:

  • Lipstick: in 6 shades
  • Lipglass: in 6 shades
  • Tinted Lip Conditioner: in 2 shades
  • Eye Shadow quad: in 2 variations (with one features violet blue, brown, gold and pink-coral shades and the other one features mint, blue-silver, pale pink and magenta shades)
  • Pigment (loose color powder): in 2 shades
  • Reflects Glitter: in 2 shades
  • Glitter Eye Liner: in 4 shades
  • Plush Lash mascara: in 1 shade
  • false eyelash
  • Beauty Powder: in 2 shades
  • Beauty Powder Blush: in 2 shades
  • Nail Lacquer: in 3 shades
The Hello Kitty Kouture includes:
  • Dazzleglass: in 2 shades
  • Sheer Mystery Powder: in 3 shades
There will also be some beauty accessories in this collection, including:
  • petite Makeup Bag and medium Makeup Bag
  • plush doll, purse mirror and brush collection (available only at MAC stores, Nordstrom and maccosmetics.com)
  • mirrored key clip and beaded bracelet (available only at MAC stores and at maccosmetics.com)
  • tote and a soft vanity kit (exclusive to maccosmetics.com)
I had high hopes of MAC's Hello Kitty collection after learning the news of this upcoming collaboration between MAC Cosmetics and Sanrio. Unfortunately, I was disappointed when I saw the promo images of this collection. Although the pink-based makeup colors are spring-like and youthful, the packaging just looks less appealing than what I expected. It seems to lack of a breathtaking "kawaii" vibe that the famed Hello Kitty enticed its fans. But I still would like to wait and see what the collection look like in person to make my final judgement.

This collection will make me insane with hello kitty again! I love hello kitty since I was a kid, so there's no possibility that I wouldn't want to try this collection, however there are some circumstances to look out this time.
