Review: Hello Kitty for Sephora Brush Set

Hello All <3

Arrives in Sephora stores and online in Mid-January, ($49)
The Hello Kitty Brush Set arrived in the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen. Everything was metallic silver and pink, adorned with Hello Kitty’s signature and face.

Comes with five brushes:
- Face Brush
- Eyeshadow Brush
- Shader/Blending Brush
- Angled Eyeliner Brush
- Lip Brush

Im a huge hello kitty fanatic and have been for years,  As soon as I saw it, I knew it was going to be love at first sight. I also think that this set is cute enough for non-Hello Kitty lovers…such as those of us who are suckers for cute things.

 First Impressions

  • Packaging(5/5) - I love it!!! it is super cute, any Hello Kitty fan would appreciate it. Anyways, It is made out of metallic silver plastic all over, kind of hard to keep clean since it is easily get dirty with fingerprints. Nonetheless, this container is really adorable and would look pretty sitting on anyone's vanity, It's not huge and it's not small, it's a great size. The head doesn't lock so you have to handle the container carefully or else it can falls off if you pick it up, but this could be because of easy quick access reason, I wouldn't want to unlock it every time i want to use it right?.

  • Brushes(4/5)  The brushes themselves are really cute. They all say Hello Kitty on the handles, and have the name of each brush on the other side. The bristles are  white synthetic with pink tips, and surprisingly soft to the touch.  
  • Price(3/5) -  Even for myself i think it is quite expensive. But I do believe you are truly paying for the packaging, no doubt about that. I know die hard Hello Kitty Fans/Collectors will love this. But for someone who is just looking for a great quality travel brush set, this would not be worth $50.
Pros:
  •  Pretty Packaging
  • Great travel sized brushes
  • Has names on brushes
  • Easy to clean
  • Brushes are soft
  • Hello Kitty
Cons
  • Brushes are a little small for everyday use.
  • Price
Overall(4.5/5)
If you looking for great quality brushes to use everyday then skip this one. But If you're a Hello Kitty Collector/lover then I would definitely recommend buying this, it's a nice collector item to have. The brushes quality are good, they are not the best and not the worst either, It's great for traveling. All of the eye brushes work well with packing on color and blending. The face brush I feel is a little small to be a face brush, so I used it as a blush brush and it works perfectly.

    I doubt I'll be getting the Hello Kitty brushes since they're so pricey and I'm not a huge HK fan, but I do like how pink it is! Oh, and your necklace is quite mesmerizing.
