When I saw ColourPop collaboration with Hello Kitty, I couldn't resist.
I took this picture from my Instagram. For this post, I will review the lip product on the left side middle.

Thoughts: When I saw the collection, I only wanted the products with Hello Kitty design on them. I noticed only the lip products had the design on the packaging. For that reason, I got one of each specific design.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Extreme Shimmer Shadow in Nude and Memebox Pony Shine Easy Glam Eyeshadow Palette 1 on the eyes.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight scent while applying but it really isn't that noticeable. I just sniffed the lip product and it has a strong scent. I don't know why it's not that noticeable while applying and I'm not sick. Anyways, it smells like buttery popcorn or at least that's the first thing that came to mind. Secondly, the packaging is adorable. I'm a huge fan of Hello Kitty. It's kind of strange. I wasn't a fan of Hello Kitty as a child but as I got older, I love it. That's the main reason I bought this product. Out of all the Lippie Stix in the collection, this is the color I can see myself wearing. I also love that with all Lippie Stix not only from this collection, the bottom is the exact match of the color of the lip product. It makes it easy to distinguish them apart if you own more than one. It's well-made, sturdy and great for the price. Not only that it has a tight seal. It makes it travel-friendly. Third, the consistency is creamy and just glides on the lips. It's easy to apply and does not tug on the lips. I love how slanted the lip product is. It makes it easy to outline the lips, as well as, color the rest of the lip. It's pigmented, and it has no sparkles. Fourth, it's a great everyday color and can see people wearing it all year round. I personally like it for spring/summer season. It's a great cool tone pink. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank. I have a tendency to wipe my mouth after I eat. Even with wiping my mouth, it leaves a slight light pink stain mostly around the outline of the lips. I never noticed that with ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Alyssa. If you're not a fan of stain, this might not be for you. I don't mind personally. With that said, it's extremely comfortable and not drying. I didn't see white residue in the center of the lips.
