Fun fact: the "ND" actually stands for "Nudist Design". Oh well. I don't like this lipstick at all. Now matter how softly I try to apply it (patting it on with my fingers, applying a lip primer first), it accentuates every irregularity on my lips. Its consistency is too chalky, impossible to create an even layer of colour.

Kate is a popular drugstore line by Japanese cosmetic uber brand Kanebo. In terms of market positioning, it lands in the middle of department store-worthy Lavshuca and the super-economical Media. The advertising would have you believe Kate is for a girl rebel. Bucking the trend of "sweet nothings" that typifies Japanese makeup, the Kate model is not afraid to do a dramatic winged liner. But that, I think, is just a branding trick. The Kate palettes are no different from the rest of Kanebo's. You can create the Lavshuca look with Kate products, particularly the eyeshadows. The "Lipstick ND" line consists of four beige colors and can work as a base color for other lipsticks. I have the BE-1, which swatches peach-ish. I think it is a bit too dull to stand on its own and definitely needs lip balm to be put on first, but it works well as a base color for sheer lipsticks. Not a bad way to get more mileage out of lipsticks that need a bit of help to bring out their colors.
