Review : Kate Spring/Summer Collection 2013 ; Goldish Eyes Collection with 24k Real Gold!

Last week I attended Kate Makeup Workshop in Pavilion and one of the highlight of the event is the latest Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. 

It was conducted in Platinum Room, Level 7, Seventh Heaven, Pavilion KL.

Kate Malaysia invited Mikiya Hirai is a Japanese Makeup Artist to conduct the workshop.

Lucky we got translator :)

Isabelle was the model for the makeup demonstration. This is her BEFORE picture.

Below are the products that Mr. Mikiya used on Isabelle during the makeup demonstration. He would be creating Day & Night look.

Mr. Mikiya used Freshel Whitening UV Gel (RM67) after he removed Isabelle's face. According to Mr. Mikiya, this Freshel UV Whitening has 5 functions i.e Lotion, Essence, Emulsion, Cream and UV Makeup Base. Since it has SPH 26 PA++, it can be used in the morning only. For night, use Whitening Gel instead.

Kanebo Freshel Mineral BB Cream Pore Cover (RM59) , this is something new to me. It's a BB Cream at the same can work to help pore cover. I really like this because I do think my pores looked smaller and face is smoother after using this! Glad to find that the shade is alright on me too :D

After that Mr. Mikiya used Kate Powderless Liquid for Cover (RM79). I remembered Mr Mikaya was saying the liquid foundation will turn into powder in 15 seconds and surely it really turn into powder when I applied on my skin! No need to use loose powder after using this :D I quite like how smooth it feels on my skin :) 

Mr. Mikiya then used Kate Cover Concealer for Cover on Isabella, the texture is pretty creamy, well this is not my type of favourite texture for concealer. 

I tried Kate Eye Shadow Base for the first time, although this is cream in texture...I only need to use a little bit and I love how it smoothen out the creases on my eye lids and actually help to enhance the pigmentation of the eye shadow! 

Let's check out the highlight of the workshop, which is the Goldish Eyes Collection under the Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. I remembered Mr Mikiya told us that in this Goldish Eyes Collection, each palette contains  of two unique gold pearl powders ; i.e Real Gold Pearl, a pure gold pearl powder with 0.1% 24k REAL gold, and Nuance Gold Pearl, a bright pearl powder with a hint of gold. Yes you read it correctly, REAL GOLD... how luxury is it to apply real gold on eyes right... !

There are a total of 4 Goldish Eyes palettes and each palette, you can see the word "GOLD" is embedded on top of the eyeshadows , which means those 2 colours have "real gold" in it. 

Below are the swatch for the Goldish Eyes Collection under the Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Each priced at RM59.
GD-1 is my personal favourite, I like the overall combination of colours of gold, brown and dark brown. 

Overall the collection colours looked very natural and with the goldish shimmer it would give a glamorous and sophisticated finishing! And these kinda of natural colour are really easy to apply & suit all skin tone. However I do think the eyeshadow texture is quite powdery to apply and colour looked really light in reality.. and in order to let the colour looked more pigmented, the eyeshadow base is definitely a must here.

This Kate Shiny Eyelid Liner is part of the  new launch in the Spring/Summer Collection 2013 too! Very easy to use & the shine is not too overwhelming. Perfect to use at the lower eyelid to make the eyes looked more dolly!

Kate also have Mascara base, Volume Gel Mascara & New Lash Extension Mascara (which is the middle one) RM59. I heard that the curved fibers can give 5mm lenghtening effect to our existing lash! 

Others Kate products that Mr Mikiya used on Isabelle.

The day look at Mr Mikiya created on Isabelle 

The night look (party) version. 

For night look, Mr Mikiya said shading is important to make the face feature looked sharp. He showed that the shading stars from the cheek bone all the way up to the side forehead. 

And now is my turn to try on the makeup! 

Naked face - a compulsory Before picture

p/s: Got to take with flash because the light in the room is quite dim :(

Well I followed exactly the tutorial in the booklet given in creating the Goldish Eyes using GD-1 palette.

My after picture

How do you like my makeover which I did on myself :D 

 Close up on the eyes makeup I did. The goldish shimmer is fine and shimmering and it must be because of the pure gold ingredients in it I think

 Look, can you see the BLING shimmering on my eyes!  

Must be the gold bling bling I have on my eyes that brings me luck..because during the workshop I won a set of Kate Goldish after answering correctly during the Q&A session! Yay!

 A picture of myself with Mr. Mikiya Hirai. He was really friendly and keep checking on my makeup when I was doing mine. And he nodded and said... good ! *happy* 

Me & Farah Hany, one of readers whom I invited along to the event...I knew her few years back and now she is now a web designer in Nuffnang office :D 

Looking at my picture, I quite like the Kanebo Freshel Mineral BB Cream Pore Cover & Powderless Liquid for Cover because my face looked pretty flawless & fresh here!
