As my very first Instagram username was @hellokittyluv99 (I was 13 at the time, please don’t judge), you can probably understand just how excited I was to be assigned the task of writing about this topic.
During our childhood years, Hello Kitty and the other adorable Sanrio characters were everywhere, gracing arcade games as coveted plush prizes, appearing on our favourite cartoon shows, and adorning all sorts of stationery.
If you’re eager to incorporate this iconic character into your life today, here’s a list of essential beauty products that every Hello Kitty enthusiast should have!
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, to 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.
Colorkey Hello Kitty and Cinnamoroll Airy Velvet Lip Lacquers retail for RM35 each at Shopee.
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!
Colorkey Hello Kitty eyeshadow palette retails for RM62 at Shopee.
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 include the Pixi Glow Tonic, that 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.my.
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 motifs of 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.
Pair the two together for a sweet look that’s a match made in heaven.
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.

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.
Adorned with colourful Hello Kitty prints, the brush works well on both great or dry hair, and is the perfect addition to any vanity to brighten up your day.
Wet Brush x Sanrio Hello Kitty Detangler retails for RM75 at Shopee.
