KATE is one of Kanebo’s many sub-branch cosmetic lines available within Japanese drugstores in Japan and if you’re lucky in various parts of Asia. Many of you already know most of this already but for those new to Asian brands a few quick facts about KATE lay ahead.
KATE is a rather inexpensive, mid-range priced cosmetic line that sports a variety of edgy compacts and cosmetics with fantastic color payoff and quality. The line is darker and has a certain flair that many Japanese cosmetics don’t sport. Where as many of these brands sport kawaii, girlish, or very feminine packaging, KATE brings the edge to it’s brand.
One of my very favorite items from the line are the KATE Dual Carat Eye Shadow palettes!
Jump ahead for my stash!
KATE Dual Carat Eye Shadow Palettes contain two contrasting shades of shimmering, pigmented shadow in a small slim line case. The shadows are silky smooth with fantastic color payoff and most important pack a nice shimmery finish that the Muse favors!
I’m a big lover of these little guys and I believe I’ve collected all the shades that KATE has released so far. I’m ever hopeful when a new collection pops up that they’ll either add to the current catalog of Dual Carat compacts or introduce a similar line up as KATE is known for revamping there palettes while keeping certain aspects of the old.
They are a true favorite with this Muse as you can see from my vast collection!

Oh hai! I’m the Muse and I have a beauty confession for you today (I’ll be sharing more beauty confessions with you soon but you’ll have to wait and be patient).
You know those little mesh hanging sponges that you use in the shower with your fav shower gel or wash?
I have a beauty confession about those little guys!
Jump ahead to read it!
So the Muse is so anal that she tosses these sponges out every three weeks. I know, I know I can totally get more use out of them than a mere three weeks but…..
The story goes like this….
I dunno remember what I was watching or where but it was this beauty documentary somewhere, someplace and on this doc they mentioned how many germs and how much bacteria grow in your shower and within sponges, toothbrushes, etc…of course we all knew that already but it freaked me out so much that I toss those little sponge meshes out every three weeks. Indeed, I do this religiously.
So you might be the frugal type and thinking gosh she’s insane all that money for the sponge and she’s tossing it? Turns out the Muse’s mother is the dollar store Queen of Manhattan. I. hate. dollar. stores. with. a. passion. I hate them but my mum loves them with a passion. The lady sniffs out every single dollar store within a quarter of a mile radius and attacks. She adores dollar stores with a passion and will proceed to call me to rave about her awesome hauls from said locations. Personally the Muse won’t step a foot into one but lucky for her that her mum is indeed the dollar store Queen which means that said dollar store Queen tells the Muse to buy bulk mesh sponges for a buck at the local dollar store. Well, wow, awesome! Who knew? Now I feel less guilty about tossing out my bacteria ridden mesh sponges!
That was rather a long confession wasn’t it? You know you love me.
I’m a big fan girl when it comes to Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht, for the Muse they are the true dynamic duo. Watching them together brings back great memories of The Screen Savers which in turn makes me think of the great ways that I plan on herding up a bunch of geeks and torching the G4 building one day!
The moral of today’s story is you can re-live your geeky days of youth and see Kevin and Alex outside of Revision3 broadcasting today!
Jump ahead for the deets.
So check it. Kevin and Alex are going mainstream tonight and are making a guest starring appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. If you’re a follower you prob already caught the eppy of Jimmy being the first “official” guest star on a Diggnation eppy who’d think you’d see Kevin, Alex, and of all people, Jimmy Fallon together!? But tis true….see it below.
I think Jimmy is a really funny guy but I haven’t yet seen his show as the word is out it’s a nap but of course I got my Tivo all set for a record to see Kevin and Alex on the show. Could be the fan girl speaking but I think Kevin and Alex are amazingly funny so I’m looking forward to seeing their antics on late night TV.
The moral of the story is if you’re a fan you’ll want to catch the guys on Jimmy Fallon tonight. Deets for the time are below!
