So I finally started getting into Japanese mascaras and the first one I ever tried (the one I'm also reviewing) is seriously amazing. Kate, from the global brand Kanebo, is a line of Japanese drugstore cosmetics aimed at trendy, and cost conscious consumers. Also, the fact that the quality of this mascara is so nice is a stark contrast to "just another drugstore product".
The Kate Integrate mascara has a skinny applicator which works really great in terms of lengthening. The formula is also quite dry so it won't weigh your lashes down. In fact, it is superbly lightweight in contrast to the Loreal Telescopic one. That one darkens my lashes a lot more than this one.
The Kate lash primer is also an interesting product because the primer itself is white! It has little feathers of product that stick onto your lashes to make it look more amplified. It's like an extension of your own lashes.
