Kate Mascara Base

This stuff is really love at first use. 

HG dude, HG. 

Sigh, I can only get it at Ebay. 

Kate is a Japanese drugstore makeup brand that branches off of Kanebo. It's impossible to find in the States! I have a few of their products and love them dearly. I treat them like they're my babies. 

Kate Mascara Base is one of their best products. I have stubby, dense, Asian lashes. Only Japanese mascaras can hold my curl. If I want to use any other types of mascara, I rely on this stuff. It's a simple white primer with some black fibers in them. White mascara primers have the tendency to not coat well with black mascara. It can leave white spots or a grey cast. Although this mascara base looks white, it has some translucency, so when you put on the black mascara it doesn't have that kind of effect. The only problem with this mascara is the fibers can sometimes poke your eye. You would have be watch where you are swiping. I do love the fibers though. It  makes my lashes look long. 


And it stays that way all day. You gotta love this stuff.
