Did you know the iconic white feline, Hello Kitty, was born in London in November 1974? Designer Ikuko Shimizu created the cartoon character for Japanese company Sanrio. Decades later, Hello Kitty is still hot. Girls around the world have been writing on her stationery, playing with her toys, wearing her jewelry and even using her hairdryer.
And now, your teen can add some limited edition merch to her cosmetic collection with the exclusive Hello Kitty graffiti line from Sephora. A treat for tween and teen followers of the famed brand, the collection includes an eye shadow and brush palette, perfume, graffiti makeup bag, eyeliner kit and more.
One standout, a prime pick for a teen just getting into makeup, is the Graffiti 5-Piece Brush Set, available for $49 at Sephora stores and online. It infuses the line's girly appeal with an edgier vibe. The Hello Kitty-shaped container, which mimics vibrant urban street art, houses five brushes – face, eye shadow, blending, eyeliner and lip.
After 37 years, London-born Hello Kitty is still number one, and her edgier side is sure to be a hit with your growing girl.
