Kanebo Kate Gradical Eyes

Evie gifted me this Kanebo Kate Gradical Eyes (engrish much??) palette awhile back. The one I have is BU-1.


It includes an eye base that helps make the colors more vibrant. I really like the applicator it comes with. I find that with Japanese shadows, the sponge applicators give a more pigmented application.


I was scared that this would make me look like a cheap Asian hooker since it has light blue shadow in it hehe. My mother has drilled it into my brain since I was little that Asian girls should never wear light blue shadow XD


Surprisingly this palette is really flattering even though it is blue. I suppose it is expected since Kanebo is a Japanese brand lol.


I decided to be brave & give my MAC Fluidline another chance. I guess my eyelids decided to behave today since it didn't smudge all day.


I really like this palette! The shadows are very smooth & easy to blend.
I love how they are not overly shimmery like a lot of other Japanese palettes are. I don't really want to look like I'm headed to the club during the day ^o^


I think these palettes are excellent quality & very flattering on Asian eyes. Definitely recommend trying them out if you can get your hands on them!
Me want moreeee! :D

  4. I WISH WISH WISH I could do makeup like that. I'm kind of more just... OPPOSITE... of that when I do my makeup.
    But I love the colors and you did it beautifully... and I'm going to copy copy copy until it never looks like that and I give up :)

  8. I really love what you did here, it looks stunning and sophisticated really. The colors look so so in its pallette but they look very pigmented when you did the swatches.

  13. The whole NO BLUE FOR ASIAN EYES has been drilled into my head too as a kid...lol. But~ when applied correctly and in the most subtle way, blue can actually accentuate our eyes! Love the eye look! ;D

    2AM! ^^

  16. It looks amazing on you! When I first saw the photo of the palette, I thought it was way too bright. I wish I have your skill because I'm just not good at applying eye shadow.

  17. Your eye makeup is lovely! And that palette looks really good...

  22. LOL at your "cheap Asian hooker" comment! XD Good thing this palette made you look the opposite of that. In fact, I think it's really pretty and complements your big brown eyes nicely! =D

    I really like the packaging. The lines somehow make it look unique. And I looooove your look. I'm really wanting to go back to liquid liners now!

    I also tagged you for a much deserved Kreativ Blogger Award!

  26. blue makes your eyes pop like mad! Very pretty!

    Love 2am too! is that a new song?

    ReplyDelete
  27. very pretty! i liked how you used minimal blue instead of tons!

    ReplyDelete
  28. It was also ingrained in my mind that azns should never wear peacock blue eyeshadow, but now I am not sure if I agree. This looks gorgeous, I also love how well the eyeliner turned out!

    ReplyDelete
  29. OMG the colors look great on you. I could never pull off blues.

  31. omg gorgeous! Its cool color but for some reason I really think it brings out the warmth of your brown eyes. And you're right, I believe its really hard for Asian girls to wear light blue shadow. At least it looks horrible on me. I really love the way your apply them too. So subtle but the look stands out so much. I will be sure to check them out when I am in Hong Kong next time. Oh, btw what mascara do you use? Do you have naturally super long lashes? Because they look really nice in all the picturess!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. your eyes is soo pretttyyyy~~!!!
    I envy your eyelashes, omg, how can that be soo longgg??? *w*

    ReplyDelete
  33. Me keep saying this, but YOU DO YOUR EYE MAKEUP SO NICELY. Wtf I still can't recreate what you do with eyeshadow! Must be retarded or something T.T

    This is a really pretty palette! Surprsingly pigmented too! I would have avoided it like crazy cos blues dont' suit me (cos of the way I do my makeup), if I did it the way you did it'd be super flattering!

    ReplyDelete
  34. ohh this is so pretty!! it's actually so perfect for the holidays.. it has that pretty metallicy blue color!!

    i forgot to mention in your cranberry cake/pie post.. that i LOVEEE LOVE ACTUALLY i watch it ever christmas without fail.. and i LOVE HUGE GRANT and COLIN FIRTH in the movie.. omg mr. darcy.. he's SO HOT! bahahah

    ReplyDelete
  35. OMG your EOTD will always be a winner!
    LOVE that pop of color!

    ReplyDelete
  36. haha I've always avoided blues because I always associated with it hookers too! The colors look really nice on you though! Your eyes look so pretty :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those silvery blues look amazing you! I seriously love your eyebrows. They are so nice!

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOL cheap asian hooker!!! i find it true with lighter blues... but with darker tones i loveeee blue eyeshadows =D
