Hello Kitty Comes to Liberty



My dear friend Vicky from Vanityfashionista and I visited Liberty yesterday. Our sole purpose was to take a look at the Hello Kitty & Liberty Art Fabrics collaboration.



The 3rd floor Liberty Print department had been taken over by Kitty's
Kawaiiness.



Shelves upon shelves filled with Hello Kitty.

I know that I am far too old to be cooing over Hello Kitty merchandise but I just cant help myself. Kitty has been a childhood friend of mine and Liberty Art Fabrics a constant obsession and I have been anticipating this collaboration since I heard about a similar one released exclusively in Japan last year. I didn't go mad though, I managed to walk away with just a couple of bits:




I bought the notecard set which comprises of 15 cards in 3 designs and 15 envelopes.



Hello Eyes eyeshadow palette.



The palette is a square shaped slightly chunky but substantial compact with a quality textured cardboard insert featuring the Kitty Liberty "Kitty Wonderland" print.



I was nicely surprised when Vicky and I took a peep inside! I was expecting various shades of glittery pink but this is a more grown up Kitty offering.

Swatches for the watchers:

Bottom line of shades.



I think this is a great palette for it's £8.00 price tag. It's pigmented, applies well and does what it says on the tin.

Do also take a look at Vicky's post about this palette HERE.

I have to note that Liberty do not stock the entire range. For instance, the umbrella and brush rolls were not in the vibrant assembly much to my dismay. This collection will be available in Liberty for 2 weeks before it will move out to Boots branches nationwide. Great for my Advantage Points.

I also managed to buy some fabric for future Emporium projects:
