The New Happy Skin Holiday Collection is Every Girl's Childhood Dream

Who doesn't love Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars? Even as adults, we continue to love these Sanrio characters.

And who says these characters are just for kids?

Happy Skin © Sanrio Characters is a 23-piece collection of products for the face, lips and nails. It is Sanrio's first collaboration with a local brand.

Limited Edition Happy Skin x Sanrio Characters Collection

There are seven new lipsticks, two blushes, two sponges, a blotting powder, five nail polishes and makeup wipes. There are three lipstick sets in Sanrio boxes, too.

“Sanrio has some of the most passionate fans, so we really wanted to do right by these iconic and best-loved characters,” said Happy Skin co-founder Jacqe Yuengtian Gutierrez. "We studied the personalities of Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Little Twin Stars in great detail, so what you will see from the products’ packaging to the shade of the makeup to even the names of the shades communicate who they truly are.”

"Sanrio brings back childhood memories to adult women. The brand has been present for almost 40 years in the Philippines, so many Filipinas grew up having Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Little Twin Stars as part of their everyday lives," said Happy Skin co-founder Rissa Mananquil Trillo.

So here are our favorites from the collection:
