MAC Hello Kitty Collection. Guess what, ladies? The Cut mentioned months ago that a MAC and Hello Kitty collection may have been in the works and Women’s Wear Daily just officially broke that the new MAC collaboration with this cute kitty will hit stores and counters in the United States!!
What’s even bigger is that our very own Jeannie was able to get a sneak peak at the collection a couple of days ago and hear all about it straight from top MAC collaborators, James Gager (Sr. VP and Creative Director), Jennifer Balbier (Sr. VP of Product Development) and Gordon Espinet (VP of Makeup Artistry).
But while we can’t spill all the beans on the goodies she saw just yet, here’s a first look into what you’ll see from the collection straight from the WWD article online:
The Hello Kitty offerings fall into two collections: the Hello Kitty Colour Collection and the more high-end Hello Kitty Kouture.
The bulk of the items are in the former category: six shades of lipstick with names like Fashion Mews and Strayin’, each $14; six Lipglass shades, each $14; and two tinted lip conditioners, $14.50 each; two eye shadow palettes, which each contain four shades and retail for $38; two shades of pigment are $19.50 each, and two Reflects Glitter stockkeeping units — one blue, one pink — are $17.50 each. Four Glitter Eye Liners, each $16.50, two shades of Beauty Powder, each $22; three shades of nail polish, each $11; a black mascara, $12, and false lashes, $12, round out the color offerings. Shades range from pinks and turquoises to lavenders and greens.
Hello Kitty Kouture is intended to be the high end of the collection. Two shades of Dazzleglass, each $28, each feature a reusable silver chain pendant with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals on black with a pink crystal bow. Sheer Mystery Powder, $90 and available in three shades, is packaged in a silver powder compact with Hello Kitty outlined in white Swarovski crystals with a pink crystal bow on a black background.
Hello Kitty Colour Collection will be available in stores and on counters while Hello Kitty Kouture will be available at MAC stores and at maccosmetics.com only. So mark your calendars, ladies, because this collection might be an even bigger hit than MAC’s Barbie collabo from two years ago.
