Hello Kitty Kouture with pics!

I had a crummy day at work and was in a state of high aggravation. I decided to go to MAC to unwind. I saw the new Hello Kitty Kouture items and the compact called to me more than I would like. I asked one of the MA what the sheer mystery powder was exactly since I had never heard of it. She told me it was a finely milled powder. It can be used alone or on top of foundation. It's consistency allows for a little bit of buildability but not much. The mystery powder is a limited release and the MA mentioned that since it is not available year round, the compact does come with a re-fill so you do get 2 pans of powder. This helps a bit to justify the cost ($90) of this puppy. The powder comes in three shades: medium light, medium plus and dark. I'm about a NC25 in mac foundation and I got the medium plus which goes on pretty well.When I was checking out another MA mentioned that the blushes sized for the mac palettes also fit into the compact so its uses can be stretched beyond holding the mystery powder.

Lip gloss and compact boxes

Compact comes with pouch and powder/sponge refill

I couldn't get the lighting quite right but the arrow points to the section
I think shows the color the best.

I also got the Dazzlepuss lip gloss, it's a very shimmery vibrant pink which is similar to the the Too Faced Girls Dig Pearls lip gloss in Tropical Pink, although the glitter is a bit more fine.

To further help justify my hefty purchase I did receive a HK tote bag.
