Introducing and sharing my review of KATE TOKYO 2015 AW Collection. A huge fan of Kate, I find the brand’s products affordable and good. Kate is a japanese drugstore brand that’s under Kanebo’s brands.
A new season of eye looks is in your hands with the KATE TOKYO 2015 AW Collection. The highlights of this collection include the hero products KATE TRAP IMPACT EYES, KATE DOUBLE EYELID REMAKE LINER as well as additions to the highly popular KATE CC LIP CREAM line. Create dazzling looks focusing on multi-color gradation on the lower eyelids with the latest from KATE TOKYO.
KATE DESIGNING EYEBROW N-EX 4
in the pan, the shades have a yellow undertone. there are three shades altogether, the top two are meant for the brows, while the bottom shade is for soft contouring.
All three shades have a matte finish. While the powder is a little harder than their eyeshadows, they are incredibly smooth and surprisingly easy to work with considering they are matte finish (most matte products will apply unevenly, but these apply really evenly). As the product is on the sheer side, you can control how much product to use to achieve a certain intensity.
The effects are so natural. you’d think that a powder do not have the intensity of a brow pencil to define the end of the my brows. You can try a slightly stiffer angled brush that is able to deposit more product onto the skin. The original angled brush that came with the product is on the softer side, what it means is that you can create a very soft looking brow that has feathered edges. Since it’s a powder product, it stays on my skin really well throughout the day. I also use this palette an eyeshadow sometimes because of its versatility.
KATE TRAP IMPACT EYES ($27.00)
Shades available are in BR-1, BR-2, BU-1, GN-1 and PK-1
Create eyes that make an impact with the new KATE TRAP IMPACT EYES. Brilliantly playing with light, the five palettes from KATE TOKYOcreate light to dark colour gradations on the lower eye lids for eyes that appear naturally large and defined. With five shades available, you can flaunt your large, well defined eye look together with KATE TRAP IMPACT EYES at every occasion.
The shades I received were BR-1, BR-2 and PK-1.
I have always been a fan of Kate eyeshadows way before receiving them! The shadows received are very pigmented and goes on smoothly when applied on the eyelids. Very shimmery, they make any eye makeup stand out. My favourite palette has to be the PK-1 which consists of a unique combination of colours (Burgundy colours). The other two palettes were in gold and neutral tones perfect for the everyday look or can recreate the smokey eye look.
KATE DOUBLE EYELID REMAKE LINER ($17.00)
Shades available are in LB-1
Change your eye shape with minimal fuss or effort with the new KATE DOUBLE EYELID REMAKE LINER. The first of its kind, the KATE DOUBLE EYELID REMAKE LINER accentuates the crease, and extends your eyelid folds with a simple flick of a wrist. The specially developed formula comes in a shade close to natural skin tones to seamlessly create eyes that are larger With smooth gradation and blending, the lower eyelid appears plumper as well!
Texture is lightweight and the Liner glides on smoothly when applied to the lids. I found that this colour is lighter than usual Liners which creates a natural double eyelid crease without looking too over.
KATE MINERAL MASK BB CREAM ($25.50)
Shades available are OC-B, OC-C and OC-D
The new KATE MINERAL MASK BB CREAM boasts a unique dual-effect mineral powder that blurs away noticeable pores and evens out uneven skin tones for a natural looking flawless complexion.

Lightweight texture and non greasy. The shade (OC-C) given is very close to my original shade. It blends in perfectly well with my complexion and goes on smooth.
