Kate Fall 2008 Part 2: Curve Wax Mascara & Rouge Ex

I already reviewed a good part of the fall collection here.

I decided to get the new mascara and one of the lipsticks as I am really loving Kate so I was too curious how the new comb-type mascara and the new sleek black lipsticks perform.

-Curve Wax mascara:

I swear I have never seen such a slim mascara tube! It's not wider than your standard pencil! This also means that the mascara (which retails for 1575 Yen) only contains the miniscule amount of 2.5g (about 1/3-1/2 of what your usual mascaras contain). For about US$15 that's quite little so I don't consider this mascara a steal (however in Japan you will generally pay 20-30% off depending on where you purchase it).

Anyway the mascara itself is pretty nice. It has a thicker drier texture and really holds my curl no matter what. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes quite a bit and goes on really dark black. The comb performs perfectly in covering my lashes from roots to top and keeping them somewhat separated (however, you need a lash comb with this mascara!)
My lashes feel quite soft but slightly waxy when I wear this however they can end up looking a bit spiky if I use more than 2 layers (I rarely do this anyway).

This is waterproof and needs a good eye makeup remover.
I got this in black (I don't know if there are other colors? I don't think so)

-Rouge Ex:

This comes in a sleek black tube and offers you a variety of 12 colors to choose from.
It doesn't have a buttery soft and sheer texture like their other lipstick Rouge Trance S but has more pigment and a slightly drier but still creamy feel to it. I wore mine for about 2 hours before it needed a bit touch-up but I like my lip gloss or lipstick to look freshly applied so I frequently swipe a bit on.

Kate has some of the worst color swatches on their website so it was a bit hard to choose a color I like. I ended up with RS-9 which is a really great pick and I am very happy with it.

RS-9 is a shimmery pink mauve, a MLBB color with added depth on me.

RRP 1575 Yen.
