If you know me, you know that I co-sign on anything Hello Kitty. So naturally I thrilled when Sephora released a Hello Kitty Collection back in January. They made it seem so exclusive and limited. I had to have it.I was all over it. I received a email again about the collection this week (guess it's not so limited edition and special), and I don't want anything else?? Huh?? What?? *gasp* It didn't spark my interest at all after my first go round of puckery over the brush set. I was even in Sephora yesterday and I gave the collection major side eye.
I ordered the brush set & Apple Balm in January and honestly... The brush set SUCKS its only good for "collection" purposes. Sephora is claims that the brushes are "professional quality"? They are cute because they are pink. I knew they would be small because I read some reviews before I purchased. They are mini. I wouldn't even want to travel with them or use them as a travel set...

I'm didn't end up returning it because I'm a Hello Kitty fan and I do like the holder, not for brushes I actually keep my cotton rounds in there.
Here are some photos of the set that I took myself.
This "situation" reminded me to research harder and better in the future and not just buy something because it's Hello Kitty.
~Brushes aren't professional quality as described.
~ Brushes are tiny NOT small or mini
Pros (I'm making Lemonade out of this Lemon of a product)
~Nice Hello Kitty Holder to add to my Hello Kitty stash.
~ Brush Holder is great for storing things like Q-Tips and cotton rounds.
Seriously, Sephora FAILED on this one.... *tear*
