KATE Stick Concealer Review & Swatches

KATE Stick Concealer 6

KATE is a Japanese line of cosmetics sold under the Kanebo brand name. With brands like Lavshuca under their belt I’d say that KATE proves the more edgy in the Kanebo family with a range of bolder shades of color.

They recently introduced a few new concealers and revised formulas of concealers to their catalog, well, perhaps not that recently as its been several months since I purchased some of the new items.

Let’s take a look at the KATE Stick Concealer.

Shu Uemura White Efficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse

Ok fan girls, life as we knew it was potentially over when Mitchell was staked by George. But to add salt to our open wounds we lost George and Nina.

Oh my god. Was Tobey trying to reinvent the wheel? That was 75% of the show.

But I have to admit after catching up on the latest eppy of Being Human I am absolutely thrilled with Hal. And I’ve always loved Tom but introducing Hal to the mix is sheer genius. You have Tom, a dumb but lovable lycan and you have Hal, an aristocratic elder vampire with a bad case of OCD. This is a match made in heaven.

What do you think so far? I love this new family. I’m not even missing Mitchell and George GASP! As EW.com pointed out so elegantly, the hole in my heart has closed.

Also in the works is a Dita Von Teese Makeup Collection which has had me quite hyper since the original info started circulating.

Here’s a first look at the new Dita Von Teese Art Deco Makeup Collection launching in May.

Shiseido Anessa Face Sunscreen BB Cream

Shiseido Anessa Face Sunscreen BB Cream 1

Shiseido Anessa is one my absolute favorite products for Summer fun in the sun. It offers great protection at SPF 50 and wears quite well under extreme conditions such as a day at the beach or the pool.

I’m delighted that they have a brand new BB Cream that recently launched in Japan. This is available in two shade and offers an SPF 50 as well.

I’m quite eager to get my hands on it so expect a review soon. I’m having a friend who lives Tokyo grab me one up but keep your eyes on Adambeauty.com as I’m sure he’ll get it shortly at a very reasonable price.

Visit www.shiseido.co.jp if you’d like to explore the Anessa Collection.
