KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Review & Swatches

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes 1

KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Palettes launched a bit ago but I never actually reviewed them. I fear Japanese brands sometimes have repetitive colors in new eyeshadow palettes which somehow I’ve grown out of. I mean I get excited when KATE does a new palette but typically they release that new palette in the same shades over and over again so it starts to feel like the same exact thing to me.

Can’t believe I just said that as I’m all about KATE Eyeshadow but it is true. Lavshuca is guilty of similiar.

KATE is one (only) of Kanebo’s edger brands. It’s marked with a goth-y feel but the actual makeup is very tame and natural. Jewelry Mode Eyes is a simpler palette compared to some of KATE’s normal range of eyeshadow palettes as it contains merely three shades versus five. Honestly, as much as I love a range of shades to play with I find Jewelry Mode Eyes simplifies eyeshadow application which I’m cool with. Especially in the morning when I just don’t have the time or the patience to use five different eyeshadow shades in a single look.

I typically don’t like cream to powder products but I was interested to try this after seeing swatches online as the formula looks quite nice.

Here are some of my thoughts!

KATE Concealer for Cover

Japanese brand, KATE, introduced a brand concealer for Fall 2012 entitled (stupidly named) Cover Concealer for Cover. Yeah, I know, that name, WTH!?

This is a tiny potted concealer I was eager to get my hands on as I generally like many of KATE’s offerings however, after trying it, I have mixed thoughts on it.
