Get onto the Gold Fever with Kate's 2013 Spring Summer Collection.

I was invited to attend an exclusive makeup workshop of Kate, Kanebo in March for their Spring Summer collection 2013.

The reason why am i blogging this after so long because it took me some time to try on their new products and of course demonstrate a make up tutorial for you all using all Kate products.

Along with the changes in eye makeup trends, this season Kate has revealed a new gold effect in their eyeshadow collection. They believe in shiny and high-impact eye makeup by combining gold with other colours will create the GOLDISH EYES
Here's a close up picture of me trying the new gold colour on my left eye. 
I must say I'm a big fan of Kate's eyeshadow since I first started to learn make up. Their eyeshadow are very easy to apply (even for the beginner) and needless to mention about the lusters of colors, especially the gold when it blend with your eyelid. 

During the workshop, they have demonstrated some tips to apply the new eyeshadow collection as well as other products (which i'll talk about more in the video below) on model Josheen. They also explained the reason why their eyeshadow are so captivating is because of its ingredient that contains two unique gold pearl powders, Real Gold Pearl (pure gold pearl powder with 0.1% 24K REAL GOLD) and Nuance Gold Pearl (bright pearl powder with a hint of gold). 

My version of life tutorial on my model, Trixha from Nuffnang. She said she loves it *flip hair* :D

  1. Oh nana, that's not her name! hahaha!

  2. YES!
    I love the GOLDISH EYES SHADOWS so much!
    I think it has multifunction as the light color eyes shadows not only can be use as base color but highlighter too!
    And the gold color eyes shadow looks gorgous, classy, special and attractive on the eyes lids.


  3. The goldish eyes shadow palette is an awesome eye palette as you can mix and match with the colours to create different effects on your eyes.
    The eye shadows are also quite pigmented and easy to work with.
    The shimmery eye shadows also last for a long time even without eye primers applied.
    Overall, I am very satisfied with this palette and using this palette everyday for my everyday makeup and still loving it.


  4. For me, eye make up is always very important especially using the eye liner to make your eyes look bigger. I have used many different kinds of eyeliner brands before, and it would be a good chance for me to try this new eyelid liner to see if it will suit me as well.



  5. I love Kate goldish eyes shadow. The reason is because it can impress everyone in my birthday party. Besides, it create a bling bling sparkling eyes for me while im making a wish in my birthday party. In addition, it also help me to create new topic along my friends by discussing my new eyes shadow! haha. as such, i will use the goldish eyes shadow as my eyes make up theme for my 21th birthday. this is because i wish to be the outstanding along my birthday party. Thankyou :)


  6. In my opinion,Kate’s Spring Summer 2013 collection focuses on ‘the gold fever’ – with emphasis on eyes that shine and shimmer with luxurious gold effect. It also features a new gel eyeliner pencil for bigger, high impact eyes. And a shiny eyelid gel eyeliner to highlight the lower lids. Now with all these new launched products, which girl wouldn’t want to have bright, shimmery and bigger eyes right? I have always been a bb cream-eye shadow-eye liner-blusher-lipstick kinda girl but I've never really tried out most of the Kate's products except for their eyebrow pencil and it is seriously awesome by the way. So right now, I would like to give the others a try and hopefully I will be one of the lucky winner. xx


  7. Basically, this year's kate's spring summer collection is more on gold n glamorous look yet classy. This year's Kate's spring summer collection had chosen gold to be their main color because gold is a soft and bright yellow elements that always used to make jewelleries, coins and something precious. Gold is also in a phrase of Heart of gold. I super love the Kate's Spring summer collection because i can wear it anywhere in any occasion. As a simple day out look in d morning can touch up just a little bit for night party, it is just amazing. Wear it confidently and classy something likened to gold in brightness and preciousness ! Therefore, i hope i've this chance to try this collection . Thank you ! :)


  8. yes, I like your make up tutorial , really useful and informative, however, the only things that didn't match is the background music, it really didn't match with your video and feeling weird while listening it to watch your video. Nonetheless, everything is good!

  9. I like the Goldish eyes shadow because the colour of the eye shadow is so beautiful and it won't feel weird when it apply on the eyes. The eyes shadow will last for so many hours , it is very useful and can match with so many closet easily :) The eyeliner is so wonderful to focus on the eye make-up . I like the colour of the eye liner so much . My mum and I use Kate's products for so long and we are very satisfied with it <3


  10. why do I love Kate's 2013 Spring Summer collection ?

    The name Kate is already enough to make me love their cosmetic product, I have 5 pieces of Kate's eyes' make up product out of them.Their eye shadow is major love, it always creating shiny, bling-bling, luster outlook that make me look captivating which turn me selca non-stopped.

    Talking about Kate's 2013 Spring Summer Collection, the gold colour here doesn't sound/look like old school here, the interesting things is the one of their 2 gold pearl powders contain 0.1% of real 24K gold, it somehow imply me that my eyes won't hurt much, or will be nourish when I apply the 0.1% of 24K real gold.Ridiculous or not, its my belief =)

    Anyhow, the Kate's product always convincing me, I would say yes to Kate's product no matter what theme it is.That's my opinion, thank you!

  23. playing between the combination of brown and blue for the eye shadow in this summer, surprisingly it seems they blend it well, giving the very natural and refreshing looks. What impress me more is actually the shiny pink eye liner, it looks much more natural than the usual white colour, it's PINK and it matches our skin colour! >.>

  26. Hello nana! My fave item gotta be the Goldish Eyes Eyeshadow. The colors are so so pretty and make our eyes goes "bling bling bling" although we don't have money $$$$$ to buy 24K Real Gold. haha. Definitely will have the instant feel-good moment when applying some bling to our eye make up. Plus its gold so it will look good on any skin tone too! Awesome product from KATE!

  27. The goldish eyes eyeshadow is my favorite items in the spring summer collection. With the goldish color, it will brighten my eyes and give others a puppy look. I believe that boys will be in love with puppy eyes. Therefore, it's very convenient to bring it out because its small in size. I will apply it at my lower eyelid to make my eyes bigger and more attractive. Kate is my favorite make up brand because its not very expensive but the outcomes is superb.

    Thanks for the tutorial and giveaway!


  29. I love Kate's products so much! Especially their new item, Shinny eyelid liner and it makes me want to have it so badly. What i love about Kate's Goldish eyeshadow is i can use it not only as everyday makeup but as party makeup as well! It's also good for those makeup beginners as it already had matched all the colors in one palette. So convenience!
    Besides that, it blends so well into our Asian skin tone and it also can be used as a highlighter. =D
