Kanebo KATE Lasting Gel Eyeliner in Soft Black and Brown Review


I decided to order these new releases from Kanebo KATE – Lasting Gel Eyeliners – because I thought they’d be like the Avon Supershock Gel Liners but longer lasting and smudgeproof. KATE is such a good brand for the price: I ordered this gel eyeliner in 2 shades, brown and soft black rather than my usual hard dramatic black – I’ve realised it’s just too much for day to day. So my items arrived, one […]

The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No. 5: KATE High Coverage Foundation


This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! Last but not least to my 5 favourite foundations of the moment is this little gem from KATE (a baby brand of Kanebo Japan). KATE does not look as pretty as Lavshuca, but it does produce less fluffy, more useful products, in my opinion. KATE High Coverage Liquid Foundation is not a typically Japanese base, because other Japanese liquid bases I have used offer a […]

Covering Me: Kate Under Eye Concealer and Pore Concealer Review


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 […]

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 – […]

Japanese Beauty Invention: KATE Mascara Eyeliner Thing

I thought this was a rather bonny invention from Kate Cosmetics. What is it? I don’t know! This pen is like a firm felt tip liner. At first I thought it was a mascara. I did actually use it as a mascara to fill in the end lashes and it was ok. But my conclusion is that its a liner that you can wiggle into the base of your lashes to add some colour. How […]



I look like a zoned out zombie… Kate Deep Trap One in GN-1. It’s out of stock at the moment on Adambeauty, but keep an eye out for it to comeback in stock here.

Adambeauty Haulage


Yay Maquillage! I got the new palettes in the purple and brown set: I love the look of this palette! There’s a cream shadow, three powder shadows and one eyeliner and all the applicators all in a fairly compact, er, compact. I also got the Lip Chocolat Treatment from Kiss: I also got KATE’s palette: All in all a good haul, no? Can’t wait to play with MAQUillage but I am sure the lovely sparkles […]

First Impressions: Kate Eyeshadows, Spring 2008


You know I dig green! Kate’s new palette, Diamond Cut eyes, had 3 shades and a gold/silver glittery addition to it. I got GN-1, of course. I also got Gradical eyes in BG-1 which is the perfect aqua for me! Guess what colours I will be wearing this week!
