KATE Cosmetics 2012 Spring Summer Makeup Collection

April 2012 (Singapore), Trend setting Japanese cosmetics brand - KATE launched their highly anticipated Spring Summer Collection that is perfectly in tune with the best looks of the season.

Stepping away from dramatic hues of Fall Winter to embrace the softer and more lustrous colors of Spring Summer. This collection focuses largely on creating softly shades, lightly textured and contoured eyes.

KATE Cosmetics sent me 3 products from this new collection to try it out and review.
(I will try these out for sometimes before I update with a Look/review entry on these 3 products.)

Kate Real Create Eyes
Price: SD$27
Comes in 5 different colors : pink, brown, orange, green and blue
A five shade eyeshadow palette designed specially to create large “real 3D” eyes through a fine balance of light and dark colours. The palette consists of Clear Jelly which increases translucency and lustre, Clear Real Colour that contains light-transmitting pearl powder, and three gradation monotone colours to create deeply contoured eyes.

Swatches in various lighting...

Kate Art Dial Mascara
Price: SD$27
Bold and revolutionary, the Kate Art Dial Mascara is fitted with a tilted comb applicator that lengthens, maximises and curls lashes all at once.
The comb allows excellent lash separation, preventing possible clumping while fully coating each strand evenly. The lashes are simultaneously lifted from the base and curled or lengthened according to preference, with the lift and curl maintained by a fast-drying adhesive fluid.
The Kate Art Dial Mascara also prevents the mascara from drying up prematurely by a special twisting mechanism that dispenses fluid only when the dial-comb is turned. A great choice for lower lashes as well.

Twist to release mascara wax...

Twisted out the mascara wax...
The amount shown in the pic below are about 4 twists(to show you how it look when the wax flow out). Normally 1 to 2 twists is enough.
