We all know Hello Kitty as possibly one of the most recognised figures in the world – our adorable whiskered friend has indeed accomplished quite the global success, with the ageless, timeless aesthetic. But did you also know that Hello Kitty is, in fact, a Londoner? These are just some of the things Hello Kitty has in common with Pixi, and why the friendship between the brands might just accomplish one of the most delightful (and Instagrammable) collections yet.
The new collection has a shiny new label, and features design revamps of some tried and tested classics, as well as some new items customised for fans that want the full Kitty White experience. Fan favourites such as the Glow Tonic (£10) and Makeup Fixing Mist (£16) have been adorably adorned with a Hello Kitty top, while pampering products such as the ‘A for Apples’ Facemasks (£10) draw on Hello Kitty’s love of the green fruit for their vitamin-filled infusion of skincare goodness.
The Eye Effects Palette (£22) contains a gorgeous set of 9 energising eyeshadow shades selected by Petra Strand directly from Hello Kitty’s vintage aesthetic archives, the high pigment hues working perfectly for natural day looks and twinkling eveningwear alike.
The Lip Tone (£8) is worth a special mention. It’s not your average lip gloss – it uses special pH reacting substances to generate a complimenting colour for your lips that’s unique to the wearer’s skintype. It’s infusion with Rosehip Seed Oil and Mango Butter help to hydrate and soften, making this a stellar all round addition for the makeup pouch.
The AnyWhere Patches are our top choice from the collection, and are the perfect choice for busy, on-the-go lifestyles that need a quick but deeply efficient rejuvenation for their skin. As the name suggests, they can be applied anywhere, and the hydrogel patches work effectively to smooth, soothe, moisturise, and tone. For us at Gold Flamingo, this is the true powerhouse product that we think is a must-try!
And the best part for Hello Kitty fans is that the items in the collection cost the same as their standard Pixi counterparts. If Hello Kitty is your thing, or you just love Pixi as much as we do, this new collaboration should definitely excite you – and in their own words, it’s time to say ‘Hello to Glow’!
As Hello Kitty says, “you can never have too many friends!” And the brand new friendship with Pixi is as exciting as they come. You can shop the collection online, and at the Carnaby Street Store at 22A Foubert's Place, W1F 7PW.
