Kanebo Kate Gradical Eyes A GD-1 Spring 2010 1

If you happen to be a regular reader of my blog, then, yes, this is finally my first ever item from Kate!

As mentioned in my post back in 2007, Kate, owned by Kanebo, is a popular Japanese drugstore makeup line. It is generally as widely available in Japan, East Asia, and Southeast Asia as other popular drugstore makeup lines from Japan such as Majolica Majorca and Lavshuca. However, as a fan of Japanese cosmetics for many years, I had never bought anything from Kate. Earlier this year, I looked through Kate’s products in person again and decided to go for Gradical Eyes A in GD-1, which was released in Japan in spring 2010.
