It’s very handy that Mr BBB had a work trip to New York this week as he was able to pick up a few of the brand new Hello Kitty range for Sephora. Apparantly, the SA could not have been more helpful faced with a bewildered British man asking for things about which he knew nothing! She found the right shade of eye liner (Sand Box – which reminds me horribly of ‘litter tray’ when combined with anything kittyish), had the Apple Balm out in a flash and the same with the nail polish. The Apple Balm pot is ridiculously cute with its little saucepan lid style topper with the pink balm inside smelling not of apples, but a generic sweetness. The Kitty shaped nail polish is just too pretty. Sephora have managed to make this range credible by ensuring the product inside is to a certain standard – I’d say it’s more for the child within than actually for children. There is a certain grown-up-ness about it, helped by the prices which certainly aren’t for a pocket money budget.

Apple Balm $9
I love the Sandbox shade of eyeliner – a chocolate brown with golden sparkles, but it does what most glitter products do and leaves you post make up removal with an obvious trace of glitter particles. Mr BBB thought he’d woken up next to Tinkerbell. However, it’s a great colour on my brown eyes and the sparkle lifts the shade beautifully. The Apple balm is a coral-pink with some frosting to it – pretty and discrete.
NB: Blimey, BBB readers are the sharpest in the box. A very knowledgeable friend has just pointed out that the old Urban Decay XXX Shine pots are separated at birth from the new Hello Kitty Apple Balms:

Mr BBB is a good man for braving the make up counter and bringing back the right haul:) My other half tries to avoid make up shopping with me and generally stands aside looking like he wants to escape if I stop to look at/ buy something hahaha. I still remember the time he bought me perfume and proudly informed me he did it all by himself.
Wow how sweet of Mr BBB for getting all those bits for you. I agree sandbox when mixed with kitty’s does make you think of litter boxes. I love the colour though, actually I love anything with Hello Kitty! Did you see the mani tutorial I did for Leanne at donotrefreeze? Grown-up hello kitty. Hopefully 😀
Love Stacie xoxox
I am dying for this collection!!! I am from Australia so like you there is no way to get Sephora stuff easily. I am going to the US in July and I am just praying the collection will still be on sale.
So cute. I love Hello Kitty. I heard that Sephora is coming to Australia soon, but I’m not that hopefull that they will sell these goodies by the time they reached here….
