Kate Gradical Eye Eyeshadow Palette in Gold and Orange Review

I purchased Kanebo’s KATE new Gradical Eyeshadow Palettes recently. KATE is a pretty good brand in terms of quality although the last few eyeshadow palette offerings were a bit shimmer, a bit sheer.

The Gradical palette has 4 gradual shades and a white eye base which is quite common in Japanese eyeshadows palettes. They are thoughtful like that.

I have so many of these little palettes I went for shades I don’t normally choose – Gold and Orange:

Unfortunately, the pretty raised look is caused by the lid of the product – the actual eyeshadow is flat and a bit boring.

How cool is this orange combination! I know orange is a scary colour but I think its quite fresh and pretty too. The deepest colour is more of a dark brown-orange with some glitter.

What I’ve found with these palettes is that the pigmentation improves a LOT if you use the shimmery white base underneath – then the colours look great.

Otherwise, its not the most pigmented palette you could get.

ORANGE:

GOLD:

Gold is rather lovely too. Its got clean, yellow based golds and it has a olive tone to it.

Here the they are on my eye – the orange:

The gold – once again, excuse the funky lashes:

Verdict:

The best Kate eyeshadow palette by far – possibly of all time – is still the Glam Trick Eyes – stunning stunning stunning palettes and affordable!

However these palettes are pretty snazzy too – its the first time in a while I’ve really liked a Kanebo Drugstore level eyeshadow palette (in the last 12 months or so). As long as you do the base, you’ll have a long lasting, pretty, sparkly but pigmented eyeshadow to play with.

I purchased this from Adambeauty.com for about £8 each.
