Kate Mineral Powder Product Review

A Great Compact Powder!

Kanebo Kate Mineral Powder Foundation 1-500x500
I’m a super big shopper when it comes to cosmetics…and it’s no exception even when it comes to makeup brands from outside the states. I’ve recently gotten into Asian makeup brands, which probably all started thanks to the big hype in BB creams (I’ll admit, I’m a fan myself!). One of the more recent brands I came across is Kate, which is based in Japan and created under the more prestigious company Kanebo. Kate is a drugstore line, but much of its products perform on par with department store ones! My current favorite is their Mineral Powder Foundation with SPF 15++.
The packaging itself is really sleek, compact and simplistic. It comes in a white case with refillable inserts, which is great if you prefer to spend a little bit less and just purchase a refill. There is a sponge that comes in the package, and the powder surprisingly still looks good even applied with a sponge (I’m more used to using a kabuki brush to apply pressed powder).
What made me fall in love with Kate’s Mineral Powder Foundation is its finish. It’s definitely got the coverage I’m looking for without being too cakey. I like that it has a velvety smooth finish. What tops it all off (serious brownie points in my books) is that it is paraben-free, fragrance-free, has SPF, and is full of moisturizing properties (olive oil, jojoba oil, etc.). I think I’m sold!
The one big downer is the limited range of shades. I guess since it’s made in Japan (where most women prefer to be fair, or so I hear from my Japanese friend who actually purchased this product for me), there tends to be less shade selections to choose from. However, if you are able to find a shade that works for you, this product is definitely a must-have!

I might have to try this too. My skin needs just a bit of color and more coverage right now, but want it to feel weightless. Thanks for the review! This comment has been removed.

I'd be curious to try this. Do they sell it at all in the U.S.? This comment has been removed.

Kanebo is an AMAZING skincare line!!!! I typically only use Shiseido, but I've tried Kanebo and their products are outstanding. They make your skin so soft. Thanks for sharing! I kinda wanna give it a try now :) This comment has been removed.
