Fall 2010: more from Kate (Gel Eyeliners and Dual Blend Eyes GN-1) =)

Adambeauty recently started stocking the Kate fall collection so I hauled a few more goodies.
I think I don´t have to say much about the Dual Blend Eyes as I reviewed them short time ago. Just love the pigmented, smooth and richly pigmented texture! One of the best eyeshadow palette series I discovered recently though not of the subtle kind you might be used to from Japanese brands!
GN-1 is a wonderful fall color, a deep moss green paired with a soft pale spring green.

I also picked up 2 of the new Gel Eyeliners. I believe this is the 2nd revamp Kate did for the Gel Eyeliner since they were released. Now the brush is not included anymore but can be purchased for a few $ extra.
To be honest this isn´t the best range of gel liners now as they feel a bit soft and waxy so the color can look a bit uneven so a couple of layers is needed with a minute to let the first layer set in between. The previous version, of which I picked up the gorgeous deep green and blue shades, was better in my opinion. The liners hold up well and don´t smudge/fade though so the performance is good. 
I got BK-2 which is a deep neutral brown and BK-3, a deep black with multi-colored shimmer bits.

Love how u always review on asian products. I happen to have the kate gel eyeliner in black. Too bad tht it dried up on me after 3 months. The shadows are really pretty.

Oh I just got these Kate Gel Eyeliners last Thursday! I got the blue one though because I am very much curious how would it look like on me.. I haven't try it though because I haven't got out since Thursday. I heard that these Gel Eyeliners from Kate are really good for a drugstore brand.. Is it? Well, gotta find out! :D

Nice reviews!
Kate gel eyeliner is really popular and I have yet to try the new versions. Gel liner tends to dry up pretty quickly, like a few months even when the pot is still half full.
And both of the EOTD looks so good and wearable, I like the 2nd one better.

The Kate green eyeshadow reminds me of Maquillage's Duo Glow Eyes GR273 (which I bought after reading your post haha). I must try the Kate gel liner new colors soon!

I'm sad to hear you don't like the new liners. KATE has been my favorite for the last 3 years, and my current jar hasn't run out yet :(

Very pretty!! :) I absolutely love the eyeshadow. The gel liners look so good too!! :)

I was thinking of ordering that green eye shadow, but now I think the darker shade looks too dark and the lighter too light, so I'll probably order that only in gold. Thanks for the review!
