Eyeshadow-Comparison_-Kate-BK-1-and-Chanel-Illusion-D_Ombre-in-85-Mirfique.jpg

Bit of a random one this…but a while ago, whilst I was away I purchased Chanel’s Illusion D’Ombre in 85 Mirfique – here are my other two colours, which I do like very much. Even though Mirfique is not exactly wearable I decided I wanted it in my collection – it’s a rich black densely packed with silver glitters.   I also spotted a similar looking product from Kate, called Shiny Jelly Eyes – I bought […]

KATE Spring Collection Haul & Review: Cream Cheek, Real Create Eyes and Dual Eyeliner

KATE-Real-Cerate-Eyes-Cream-Cheek-Blusher.jpg

KATE (a Kanebo brand) is one of the old schooler’s of Japanese drugstore cosmetics.  I used to place the brand head to head with Lavshuca and there was a phase when both of the brands would release killer ranges every season but Lavshuca has been majorly disappointing of late, as has KATE. Nevertheless I picked up 3 products from their newest Spring 2012 releases.  I got their dual ended eyeliner pencil which has a black […]

KATE Wide Edge Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches – PU-1 and BR-2!

KATE-Wide-Edge-Eyeshadow-Palette-Review-and-Swatches-.jpg

Japanese eyeshadows, especially high street/drugstore level brands usually come in palettes with a particular colour theme (ie. browns or purples etc.) and come with a selection of shades from light to dark – very handy.  They also tend to be sheer and shimmery although some palettes pack a real punch, the majority are wearable daytime palettes. If you ask me, there was this season when KATE had the Glam Trick Eyes (absolutely stunning eyeshadows, pigmented, […]

KATE-Shiny-Selection-Select-Eye-Colours-Nudy-Beige.jpg

Thought I’d share with you one of my recent purchases; KATE Select Eye Colours Shiny Selection in Nudy Brown! KATE releases a few limited edition Select Eye Colours every year – the year before there was a grey and brown set.  This Shiny Selection is actually a year old but I spotted them on sale again on Adambeauty.  It goes to show that sometimes you don’t need to rush and buy LE items, they can […]

Wake up sleepy head! Four White Instant Eye Brighteners for your…er, eyes!

Eye-brightening-make-up-for-tired-eyes-white-eye-make-up-.jpg

Tired? I know the feeling to week. I average 4 hours sleep a night, sometimes 5, sometimes 3. Don’t worry, one day I will wake up at 1pm every day, watch day time television….until that day… One must try and look less like a zombie than usual.  I’ve found 4 useful, multi use, brightening products that can be used on the eyes, cheeks (some of them) and if you really must, the lips! Here are […]

My 5 Favourite Work Friendly Eyeshadow Palettes

Natural-Work-Safe-Eye-Make-Up-Dior-Becca-KATE-.jpg

There was a time when I’d go to work with blue and green purple sparkly eyeshadow – what can I say, it can be dark in the mornings and it wasn’t until I checked myself out in the lift I realised how much I looked like a CRAZY PERSON. The fact is I am very time short in the mornings and I do like a bit of eyeshadow, so I have decided to keep the […]

Kate Brown Collection Eyeshadow & Eyebrow Set Review & Swatches

KATE-BROWN-COLLECTION-EYESHADOW-PALETTE-BR4.jpg

Recently I’ve been in ‘boring eyeshadow mode’. What do I mean by boring eyeshadow mode? Well, for me, it’s browns, mattes, nudes. As much as I love me peacock type colours there’s a time and a place or everything and I’ve grown to appreciate the natural glowy look. I purchased two eyeshadow palettes from Kanebo’s Kate range a few months ago: These are what I’d call, ideal work place eyeshadow palettes.

New in 2011! Kanebo Kate Gel Eyeshadow Compacts Swatches & Review

Kate-Gel-Eye-Shadow-.jpg

Gosh – I remember the days when the pound was so strong against the dollar that I could roll on to adambeauty and buy an eyeshadow in every shade. Those days are gone, for sure. Nevertheless, when I saw Kanebo Kate’s newest gel eyeshadow offering I couldn’t resist picking up 4 shades. I love cream and gel eyeshadows! Kate’s previous offering of gel eyeshadows were more of a dense mousse texture and came in a […]
