Seeing as my first ever username on Instagram was @hellokittyluv99 (I was 13 at the time), you can imagine how excited I was to be tasked with writing about this topic.

For many of us growing up, Hello Kitty and other Sanrio friends were the adorable characters we saw everywhere — in arcade games as plush prizes, on cartoon shows, and printed all over various stationery.

If you’re looking to fit the iconic character into your life now, here are some beauty must-buys for every Hello Kitty fan!

Colorkey x Hello Kitty lippies and eyeshadows

We can always count on C-beauty brand Colorkey to deliver a knockout collaboration, such as their recent Barbie collection. If you haven’t seen their Hello Kitty and Cinnamoroll line of lip tints yet, you’re missing out!

Housed in lovely pink and blue gingham packaging, the Airy Velvet Lip Lacquers come in 12 stunning shades, each topped with a Jibbitz-style figurine.

For the six Hello Kitty lip tints in pink tubes, their colours range from nude pinks and brown pinks to even a cherry red. They leave a glossy finish, which is perfect for those looking to recreate the Korean jelly lip trend or the Y2K shiny pout.

The six other blue Cinnamoroll lip tints come in a range of similar shades, but leave a matte finish instead.

More recently, Colorkey released a Hello Kitty eyeshadow palette in a sleek rose gold case. Create enchanting looks with the mix of pink-toned mattes and champagne-gold shimmers.

With seven different shades to play around with and a compact case with a mirror included, this is the ultimate collector’s palette to show off that Hello Kitty pride for when you’re on the go!

Pixi + Hello Kitty skincare and makeup

The Pixi + Hello Kitty collection takes its iconic products to the next level with some pretty purr-fect packaging. One of the must-gets is the Pixi Glow Tonic, which includes its widely-praised formula that contains 5% glycolic acid to renew your skin and reveal a natural glow.

There’s also the Makeup Fixing Mist, which includes a blend of green tea and rose water to help balance your skin and keep your makeup intact all day. Both bottles are now topped with Hello Kitty’s adorable silhouette.

Lastly, add a pearlescent flush to your cheekbones with the Glow-y Powder, a highlighting blush that also comes embossed with Hello Kitty’s face.

Pixi + Hello Kitty collection is available at Sephora.sg.

OPI Hello Kitty nail polishes

These limited-edition Hello Kitty nail polishes were first released in 2016, and was brought back again in a 2019 holiday collection by popular demand. With caps adorned with the character’s iconic bow, these polishes are too cute to resist.

Get ready to tap into your hyper-feminine side with two of the collection’s standout shades — A Hush of Blush and Let’s Celebrate.

A Hush of Blush is a mesmerising baby pink with a metallic finish, while Let’s Celebrate takes the glam factor up a notch with its gorgeous magenta sparkles.

Pair the two together for a sweet look that’s a match made in heaven.

OPI Hello Kitty nail polish in A Hush of Blush retails for S$13.90 and the shade Let’s Celebrate retails for S$13.80 at Shopee.

The Crème Shop X Hello Kitty Face Masks and Lip Products

The masks from The Crème Shop are some of the best I’ve used, and their Hello Kitty ones make for great gifts for a friend or yourself!

The Me Time Mask contains anti-ageing and hydrating ingredients such as collagen, cucumber and white tea, while their special Fusion Essence Mask combines two ingredients — pineapple, which boasts abundant antioxidants that combat skin damage resulting from UV rays and pollution, and hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrates and fortifies the skin’s protective barrier.

Level up in your self-care game with their adorable Macaron Lip Balms, available in six shades, or their Kawaii Kiss Lip Oil, which leaves your lips feeling smooth and supple.

The Crème Shop X Hello Kitty collection is available at Sephora.sg.

The Original Makeup Eraser Hello Kitty 7-Day Set

Created by Taiwanese inventors, these reusable makeup remover cloths help to erase makeup and exfoliate your skin using just water. One Makeup Eraser is equal to 3,600 makeup wipes! You read that right. This means you’ll be getting huge savings from purchasing way fewer conventional makeup removers.

This revolutionary and earth-friendly alternative also comes in adorable Hello Kitty designs, and their 7-Day set features pastel purple, blue, and orange cloths that you can use throughout the week and in between washes.

The Original Makeup Eraser Hello Kitty 7-Day Set retails for S$41 at makeuperaser.com.

Want to extend your love to the entire Sanrio family? We’ve also found another version that features six other iconic characters, such as My Melody, Kuromi, and Pompompurin.

The Original Makeup Eraser Sanrio 7-Day Set retails for S$50.65 at Shopee. A sale is available at the time of writing. Click in to check the latest price!

Wet Brush x Sanrio Hello Kitty Detangler

Tired of tangled hair and hard-to-manage frizz? The original detangler brush features ultra-soft bristles and was designed specifically to minimise pain and hair damage from split ends and breakage as tangles are removed.

Available in three different colourful Hello Kitty prints, the brush works well on both great or dry hair, and is the perfect addition to any vanity.

Wet Brush x Sanrio Hello Kitty Detangler retails for S$21.90 at Shopee. A sale is available at the time of writing. Click in to check the latest price!
