Kate is one of my favourite Japanese brands. Visually, its nothing spectacular, but I do think their products are really good quality for a fair price.
I picked up their new(ish) under eye concealer and pore concealer a few months ago to try. I do often think that no concealer can do it all – one for spots and redness might be too thick for under the eyes, something too light won’t work on the pores etc.
The under eye concealer is just one shade, a sort of yellow based beige. Looks dark in the tube for under the eye but its not, its actually quite light once applied.
The pore concealer is clear and like a lot of pore concealers, has that sort of siliconey feel.
I like squeezy tube concealers a lot – I guess because its more hygienic than one that comes with a sponge or brush tipped applicator, and also better than something that comes in a tub. I also prefer a cream texture to my concealers.
My eyes are suffering a lot at the moment with constant internet use (a eye care video is coming up!) but anyway, here we are with dark circles:
The concealer applied – you don’t need as much as I applied (as I realised AFTER I did the dots), a little goes a long way.
It looks like it will be too tick but it does actually blend in nicely! Tap tap tap, be gentle…
See what I mean? Too much! If I apply too much I tend to take it all over my eye lid too and it serves as a base.
Blended in. Does the job and sets, leaving a long lasting base. I really like it, its effortless and good for people who don’t get enough coverage from say, a illuminating concealer or highlighter (like Touche Eclat or Dior Skinflash). This is more substantial but without getting creasy.
The pore concealer is also quite good. I applied a small amount here and it left a smooth base for foundation. I recently also bought the Ettusais Pore Concealer but its heavier and has a colour to it – this one is more like a concentrated primer.
All in all, I would recommend both of these. They are compact enough to carry out and about too.
I bought these from Adambeauty, I think they cost about £9 each with shipping.
