Hello Fellas! Today I'm going to review a product that I got in my Memebox.

It's Kate Rouge HG!

Before you're confused, I'll explain. No, the box didn't come with 2 lipsticks, and YES I BOUGHT ANOTHER BOX. Call me crazy, but I love the BB cream so much, I take the risk and bought another box!

Luckily, the lipstick that I got is in different color!

"KATE" is a second label to a Japanese brand "Kanebo" and I think it just recently got into the Korean beauty market. I never see them before until around 2-3 months ago. If you live in Korea, you can get these in Olive Young! In Korea it retails for KRW 18.000. Comes in 15 shades selection.

I got the RS-9 (Rosy Pink) and PK-22 (vivid pink) shade. I got this for random, though I probably will love whatever I got from the box because all the colors are so pretty!




This item is actually one of the reason I want to buy another memebox. I love this lipstick! 

Nice Packaging. The packaging is simple, so sleek and it's a stiff rectangle! So my style! 

Non-sticky, No Scent. 

Great Texture! It's glides so smoothly and it's not the type of lipstick that it's so creamy it's going to break anytime. It's like, creamy but hard? :D I found that this lipstick's texture is very similar to Revlon's Lip Butters, with less pigmentation and shimmer. 

Sheer Pigmentation. The color payoff is not that great, I know this is a sheer liptstick, but even after layering so many times, the color can't be build. I would love it if I could build the color up if I want too, but sadly it's not happening. That also means the shades look similar to each other

Overall, this lipstick is a very good lipstick, especially for daily and natural no makeup-makeup look. Most of the shades are the MLBB (My Lips But Better) shades. For KRW 18.000 per stick, this is definitely not a cheap lipstick. But I'm pretty sure one stick can last for a long time. 

I love these! But I don't think I could afford another one without any sale or discounts D:
Kate might be my new Japanese brand favorite :p


RS-9. The color is not really obvious, but I prefer this one to the PK-22 :D

  1. The colors are quite similar to one another but they're both pretty MLBB colors! They look moisturizing as well. I've never tried any Kate products but they look pretty nice. Thanks for the review! :D
