Review: Kate Cosmetics Fall/Winter 2012

I’ve been a user of KATE Cosmetics for a long time, and I remember my first foray into the world of liquid eyeliners: The very first liquid eyeliner I ever purchased was actually KATE’s Super Sharp Liner!

KATE Cosmetics has sent me some products from their Fall/Winter 2012 collection, and I gotta say, I am loving so many of them! 

KATE Powderless Liquid Foundation, SGD34

The most important step in achieving a flawless look with makeup has got to be the foundation. KATE’s Powderless Liquid Foundation is named as such due to how the liquid foundation actually turns into a matte powdery finish after 15 seconds, giving you an instantly smooth, shine-free complexion!

As you can see, the liquid spreads easily and blends well into a matte powder finish! Perfect for the lazy girls like me, because it saves the extra hassle of having to set liquid foundation with loose powder! ๐Ÿ™‚ Kate Powderless Liquid Foundation also comes in six shades, so you’ll be able to find a match closest to your skin tone ๐Ÿ™‚

KATE Deep Shiny Eyes, SGD23.50

One of the star products of the collection, in my opinon! I really love the KATE Deep Shiny Eyes eyeshadow palette! Each palette comes with three complementary shades which can be used together to achieve a lovely shimmery smokey eye look that’s perfect for year-end festivities ๐Ÿ™‚

The eyeshadow is extremely pigmented, and if you love shimmery and frosty eyeshadows like I do, you’d definitely love the KATE Deep Shiny Eyes.

KATE Slim Create Powder, SGD27

Another product that I am loving to bits from the collection, and have been using on a regular basis! KATE Slim Create Powder is an extremely handy contouring powder that contains a white powder (for highlighting) and a brown powder (for shading)!

A visual within the compact itself shows you where to use the highlighting powder and where to use the shading powder! The compact comes with its own brush as well that I find quite easy to use, especially when contouring the nose/eye areas. Very convenient for carrying around for quick makeup on-the-go!

As you can tell, the shading powder is so subtle, it hardly shows up on my skin! (Or maybe I am just too tan…) But trust me, it really makes a huge difference and can be seen in photos and in real life for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

KATE Super Sharp Liner, SGD17

Last but not least, the KATE Super Sharp Liner, in a limited edition Night Red color! This eyeliner boosts to be the thinnest and sharpest on the Japanese market, at an incredibly thin 0.03mm! The Night Red shade is actually surprisingly wearable, and looks almost black, but less stark. As with my previous experience with KATE’s Super Sharp Liners, it’s very easy to control and use, even for beginners.

Here’s how the eyeliner looks when swatched.


I used the above products to come up with a glam look which I think is suitable for parties and year-end festivities! ๐Ÿ˜€ Of course, I think the most important products for this look would be the eye shadow palette, followed by the contouring powder ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Loving the final look created with KATE Cosmetics Fall/Winter 2012 collection!
