Sport the bright-eyed look with KATE's Spotlighting ShadowSunday, July 06, 2014
I don't know why Kanebo has a stereotypical reputation that the brand is nothing more than another department store brand when it fact I have been using Kanebo as far as I have been doing makeup professionally which is 10 years. I love their loose powders and their skin care so when people look at me like I have three heads when I tell them that I use Kanebo, I tell them Kanebo is in fact a Japanese brand and is Japanese made. They prices are not drugstore-brand-cheap either, so what does that tell you?
So when Kanebo invited me to their KATE Tokyo launch, there was only one answer: YES! I have always believed in this brand, and I will continue to support them the best way I can. Congratulations Kanebo Philippines for a great launch!

I wasn't able to take photos at the launch but I am able to tell you all about this new innovative eyeshadow from KATE. Let's talk packaging: Need I say more? I have always loved Japanese packaging so there's nothing else left to say.
Although I do hope they provide a sticker with an English label though. This is somewhat a little bit of a "con" for me. I want to be able to read what I am putting on my face and not rely everything what the BA says at the counter.
But using all of them is kind of why these eyeshadows sell like hotcakes. It's easy to use and not to much blending required. You will be able to apply these shadows like a pro with minimal effort.
Next step comes my favorite part. Blending them all together with the "Glossy Light" which is a light-reflecting pearl powder. Using the light gold shimmer/glitter shadow, apply is on top of all the eyeshadows applying it from the brow bones down to the lash lines blending the eyeshadows all together.
