Kate Cosmetics new Fall collection "Wide Edge Eyes"

[Event + New Launch]

Attended the Kate Cosmetics intimate blogger session @ The Scarlet Hotel (A Four stars boutique hotel) a few weeks ago. To preview their latest launch "Wide Edge Eyes.


The trend-setting Japanese cosmetics brand - Kate, comes its highly anticipated Fall Winter collection featuring products that will be sure to redefine the makeup guru’s Holy Grail products of the season.
With a dynamic combination of rich and warm colours like gold and brown coupled with a blend of cool colours, the collection(wide edge eyes) is right on trend with the most in demand look of the season.


Kate Wide Edge Eyes promises to widen and lengthen eyes with its expert blend of pearl powder. (Come in 5 different palette of shades)
The session was held in a Passion suite (click)

The suite was really cozy, sweet and gorgeous... just abit warm(too many ppls squeeze into a small room.)

Finger foods/snacks... didn't ate much, cos I came from another "event" plus a "lattes" session with buddies.
Anyway, they do have ice-water.. but the glasses were kept inside the cupboard(under the snacks/flat screen TV)  which no ones saw (or took it out!) lolx (abit weird to keep all the glasses/cup right?)

After some snacks plus checking out the makeup on the display table... Follow by introducting Kate latest launch + makup demo! (Not going to go into details, cos it's just a demo on how to use the products from base(Primer/bbcream/loose powder foundation) to color makeup (blush/eyeshadow/mascara/liner and ects).

The ppls from Kate prepared some costumes for us to dress up and have fun taking pics(they even prepare a huge "ring light")... but no one change except Jiaqi! lolx (cute right?)

All the bright white/pale pics were taken infront of a huge ring light! (Except my 2 solo shots.. I took it infront of the bathroom mirror... I love the bathroom... so pretty)


They provided us with a set of their new launch products to try it out .. included 2 of the star release "Wide Edge Eyes" shadow palettes. I did took pics of the new products during the session at the suite... but due to the lighting/spacing, all my products pics were kinda blurry  (-_-)" so I took fresh set of pics at home with natural lighting(or flash)!

I received 2 Wide Edge Eyes Palettes in BR-1and PK-1
[Price: SD$27]






Swatches..

PK-1 swatch

New mascara base (this is a new version with black fiber)... The original version is Kate Mascara base A) and the latest version is (Kate Mascara AA)
[Price: SD$20.50]




Compare both mascara base...

(Note: I purchased the Original mascara base last year(A friend CP for me at HongKong) and I didn't quite like it at first, but when it start to get abit "drier" it was NOT BAD! I hope the new version would be much better)
Next would be the Eyeliner Pencil RT (Real Touch)
[Price: SD$20.50]
This is a gel liner in pen form (It look like a crayon pencil liner.. but when you swatch it, it glide on smoothly like a gel base liner!)


[Note: Once you turn out the pencil.. it cannot be turn back in.. so try not to turn out too much!]

Eyeliner FR (Come in black and brown) The one I received was brown.
[Price: SD$19.00]

It does bleed when I swatch it on the back of my hand (cos the ink was too "moist") I still haven't try this on my lash lines yet.

Mineral Loose Foundation SPF 25 PA++
[Price: SD$29.00]



Rouge High Glam
[Price: SD$23.50]


swatches..

The color doesn't look this crazy on the lips... and it's wasn't that "bronze-y" like the flash shot(above)
Applied a layer of the lip color on my lips... (Buildable intensity, above swatches was like about 2/3 layers)



(Pls excuse my base face - too lazy to put on makeup when I took these shots, cos not going anywhere)

(I will add in swatches for the liners and eyeshadows soon)
