Kate Tokyo by Kanebo Blogger's Event : A picture diary. And Selfie to Japan?Monday, June 16, 2014
(THIS IS A HELL OF A LONG POST. Prepare to scroll your fingers off)
Kate or Kate Tokyo,(as it will be known Globally) which debuted 1997, is a wildly popular and fast rising Asian brand from Japan. Trend-conscious consumers in Japan, prefer this for its moderate price-point, trendiness and quality.
Here are some pictures (with little snippets of commentary) from the event.
I believe I was the second one to arrive. A feat that will definitely surprise my friends as I'm known as always being perpetually-unfashionably-late. I've turned a new leaf guys. You're welcome.
Here I am taking my sweet time. This is what's good about being early. Less competition at the makeup spread.
Look at that concentration.
Despite the very "I-am-a-serious-blogger" face going on, I was prancer-sizing inside. I mean just look at all these pretty things.
For texture think tinted lip balm with a slightly glossy finish. Once put on, you don't have to think about it. really. They don't feel heavy and they sit well on the lips. These are moisturizing and emollient. But they don't replace your standard lip balm. So if you have dry lips, this might accentuate them. All in all I quite like these.
The tube is really pretty too. As the brand emanates Stylish, Urban and Cool the packaging is designed that way, and I really really like it. Black always looks chic.
Here's Cece, the one who invited me, introducing Kate one of the brands under Kanebo.
She did the gradient style eye shadow befitting Asians (usually) as opposed to the cut-crease western-style on the model.
Here was my loot.
Look forward to the review of the remake and eyeshadow palette. The mini ones I doubt since I don't have enough to make a substantial review, but I'll try to post my thoughts on it on instagram! Ahem @manilawithlove. Seriously, don't be shy.
SELFIE TO JAPAN
Ahh the Pièce de résistance. Yes. Take a selfie. Win an all-expense paid trip to Japan FOR TWO. #dying.

I enjoyed hearing about the brand mainly because I'm into Asian cosmetics. Plus they're not the typical "kawaii" "princess" themed Asian makeup (think Majolica Majorca), they're more sleek, sophisticated, cool and trendy.
I will definitely be sending my #selfie soon so what are you guys waiting for? It's a SELFIE you guys. How hard can it be?
PS. This is honestly a really good campaign. Great job Kanefil!
PPS. Price range for the cosmetics is around the same as L'oreal's in stores.
PPPS. You're welcome.
