MAC + Hello Kitty isn't so kawaii

Sigh. No real playfulness or cuteness here, although I do like the image of Hello Kitty's head stamped onto the actual lipstick (see second image). I've cobbled together a collection of images of the MAC + Hello Kitty Colour Collection collaboration from a selection of blogs (incl Beauty Anonymous and some Taiwanese blogs). Apparently there's a Kitty Kouture Collection coming out early Feb. The range looks like mostly cool tones, mostly black packaging... I prefer the MAC + Manish collaboration and, in fact, am finding this whole collaboration idea beaten to death... Smurfs, Disney, Viktor & Rolf, Ungaro, slebs, Manga, Barbie, whoever... Matel has come out aces on this one, haven't they?
