Kitty Kouture is a short but sweet collection, and it will rob you blind after you take one look at all of the Swarovski crystals on the blinged out compact. For those wondering, the bling-bling kitty chain on the dazzleglasses is removable. The packaging for the dazzleglasses is well-done with black box packaging with a glittery kitty on the outside (not Swarovski crystals!). The kitty charm has a clear plastic sheet overlayed on the front and back, to only be removed if you want to reduce the value ;P

The compact is silver with plenty of Swarovski crystals, and inside is the sheer mystery powder. I’m not a big fan of the sheer mystery powder; it just doesn’t do anything for me. It’s like a subpar to average pressed powder. I also find the shade range very limiting–Medium Plus is too dark but Light Medium is too light! I overheard a lot of people are getting Dark Secret–I’m thinking maybe people are going to contour with it instead. I really see this compact as a collector’s item, and by that, I do mean Hello Kitty collector’s item.

Kitty Kouture is a sheer, glittery/shimmery milky pink shade. It’s really not going to give you a ton of color, but it is pretty and catches the eye. I would say of the two dazzleglasses from KK, this is the one that dazzled me the most. (Oh, punny.)

Dazzlepuss is a slightly darker, deeper pink–kind of like a medium pink–with just as much glitter in it. It has more color to it in the swatch, but it’s still very sheer on the lips. This one may show up as a light pink tint if your lips aren’t too pigmented.

    I was going to pick one of these up but now I don’t know because I just dropped money at clinique because there’s a bonus right now and I’m always a sucker for bonus time.

    Oh wow! I can’t wait until mine arrives from my online order! Does anyone know if her eyes will have 4 crystals or 2 crystals? I’ve seen a few pictures of it with 2 crystals and it looks like she’s crying. =( I want her to look happy! =)

    I would love to win! I don’t actually own any dazzleglasses and my only experience with them was a sampling at my local counter. The formula is phenomenal and I would love to win.

    I would love to win because I’ve never really won anything and I would love this color soooo much! Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to buy much of MAC stuff because of the way things are right now. I have to take care of other things first! Please Christine, this is a really pretty color and I would love you even more!

    I grabbed everything from this collection!! They even placed my goodies in a reusable MAC Hello Kitty bag!!! I think I was more excited over that :-)

  21. Rachael

    I ended up buying both of these because I couldn’t decide on one or the other! They are a bit sheer but I love all the sparkle and shimmer in them.

  22. michelle

    I kind of like the fact that the charm is detachable. However, I wish they would just sell me the charm instead of having to pay $28 for the whole thing. Maybe I can get a discount? $10 for the charm? Just kidding.

    Thanks for the review Christine!

    • LOL!

      You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if you could post an “in search of (ISO)” post on the MAC Cosmetics Livejournal community for someone to split it with you — someone who wants the dazzleglass for $18 and you could pay $10 for the charm 😉

  23. It’s so sad these are so expensive!! :(

  24. chrysss

    some of the crystals on mines already popped off :((
