In early July 2013, I’ve attended a cosy event organized by KATE Cosmetics to preview their 2013 Spring Summer Collection and their latest Concealing Cover Powder Foundation. The collection embraces the shiny, high impact makeup created by combining various shades with gold for a glamorous sophisticated look that takes every girl from day to night.
Goldish Eyes – S$27
In this season, gold is the new black. Introducing KATE Goldish Eyes, the eyeshadow quad series featuring Colored Gold and Shiny Gold shades for captivating eyes.
The Colored Gold (lower right) is created by combining a regular shade with Nuance Gold Pearl, bright pearl powder with a hint of gold to add lustre. The Shiny Gold (upper left) meanwhile is the result of the use of real gold pearl – a pure gold pearl powder.
Goldish Eyes available in four colors. And I’ve chosen shade GD-1 (above) as my complimentary palette. I must say this palette is pretty versatile and it’s suitable for most occasions.
Concealing Cover Powder Foundation – S$34
Foundation Case – S$14.50
KATE has recently launched the new powder foundation, Concealing Cover Powder Foundation, that is packed with pure transparent powder and shimmers that reduces pore visibility for incredibly smooth and flawless skin without any cakey powdery finish. Titanium oxide particles are sized optimally to cover redness and even out skin tone. I’ve chosen shade OC-B for my skin tone.
Available in six shades, all shades comes with SPF20 PA+++, except shade OC-G comes with SPF15 PA++ and BR-C comes with SPF20 PA++.
Upon the event, I was presented with a goodie bag that contains the latest Concealing Cover Powder Foundation (OC-B) with the case, Goldish Eyes (GD-1), Shiny Eyelid Liner (PK-1 Soft Pink), Lash Extension Mascara in Black, Gel Eyeliner N in Mat Black and Brightening Makeup Base for Cover. Many thanks to KATE Singapore!
This waterproof Lash Extension Mascara, retailing at S$25.50, is formulated with super long triangular extension 5mm-long fibers that adhere easily to lashes and a wax formula to maintain curl, doll-like lashes. Available in Black only.
Instead of using liquid or pencil eyeliner, I can now line my eyes with this KATE Gel Eyeliner N. Retailing at S$25.50, the fade-resistant formula that runs smoothly over my skin, create sharp lines that doesn’t smudge at all. It’s pretty easy to use, like the brush a lot.
