KATE Spring Collection 2009 KATE Diamond Cut Eyes Palettes

Although KATE's main site has not been updated Kanebo's portal site is showing up with the brand new additions for KATE Spring 2008.

I'm quite excited about the KATE Spring Collection and I'll be picking up quite a few of the items released.....


Read on for what the Muse is hauling!

I normally adore almost all of the releases that KATE puts out and I'm particularly thrilled with the new Diamond Cut Eyes Palettes. These appear to be typical Spicy line range palettes however they have a silver and gold diamond powder which I'm assuming you use to finish your eye look. I'll be purchasing all four of the shades released as the Muse is all about diamond like sparkle! Each palette retails for 1,690 yen but will have have the standard 20% drugstore discount.


Also released is a brand new shade of KATE Gradical Eyes Palette in an aqua variation. The color appeals completely to me but I own a majority of the Gradical Eyes Palettes and I make little to no use of them as is since they aren't as shimmery as other KATE palettes I own. I'm not huge on the formula and I've seen way better releases in the line so I think I can safely skip this.


A new color of KATE Deep Trap Eyes Palette is also releasing but considering I haven't indulged in any last season I probably will safely pass again considering my interest is caught and help by the Diamond Cut palettes.


One other item I do have my eye on is the latest release of KATE Gel Mascara....at first try I wasn't a huge fan of this mascara but it's become a staple and I think I'll purchase the new variation to see what's different and it's about time I threw out my old version anyway as it's near 8 months old.


All in all a rather nice selection of items from the KATE Spring Collection. I'll be hauling those Diamond Cut Eyes Palettes as quickly as I can as they look stunning!

What about you?

Does any of KATE's Spring Collection hold your interest?

Tell the Muse!

The eyeshadows look like the EL shimmering jewel powder:) I love it when shadows and powders are embossed with a nice design:)

I love Kate shadows from the past because of its super pretty shimmer and good pigmentation, I'm sure this one will be great too

I will definitely buy Deep Trap Eye's new color, because I already have three of them (and I <3 them!). Diamond Cut seems very interesting too and the mascara is a must-have! So basically I will purchase little bit of everything. Except the Gradical Eye. I really don't like them (although this one's color looks very nice.)

The Diamond Cut Eyes look so alluring! I can't wait to see them; if I ever get my hands on them, lol!

By the way, I linked to your Gransenbon blush post in mine! ;)
