Here’s the situation: you’re a busy individual who wants to look her very best with the little time you have to do it. On an ideal day, you have 10 minutes to pull yourself together and the rest of the day to get things done.
Enter Katherine Cosmetics, an up-and-coming line of makeup divided into 3 categories: Everyday Beauty, K-Sport Beauty, and A+ Friends Beauty. These groups were created to take the guesswork out of daily makeup application and, more importantly, the overall “type” of makeup you need for your life.
In short, Everyday Beauty is the collection for those who love a polished, full-face look using foolproof neutral shades. It includes practically packaged concealer, cream blush, eye liner, mascara, and a shimmering gloss. Each product packs enough pigment to apply and go but are a perfect size for your handbag if you need to touch up. The standouts from Everyday Beauty are Cheek Glow and Concealer – these layer exceptionally well and never get cakey or look overdone on the skin.
K-Sport Beauty is your go-to for – well – going! If you’re someone who spends a lot of time outdoors, working out, or just plain running around, these SPF-infused formulas are perfect for you. K-Sport includes 2 very pretty and lightly shimmery glosses along with a super moisturizing sheer tinted stick called the Wow Stick. The name fits the bill because it’s a truly unique product, featuring only one shade for all skin tones (but it really does work – promise). Think of it more as a skin smoother rather than a traditional coverage foundation; it glides right over texture and is really quite different. It evens the skin very slightly and works well as a primer.
A+ Friends Beauty is a collection of lipsticks with a cause. A portion of each purchase from this particular group go to various charities, some of which include the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and a children’s hospital. What an amazing move from the company, especially considering the hundreds of multi-million dollar beauty big-wigs that don’t have such a notion in place – so thank you, Katherine, for giving back. It doesn’t hurt that the lipstick is nice, too, with medium pigmentation and a creamy finish. It’s comfortable on the lips and there’s a color for everyone – though Examiner readers may just be partial to Debby J, a gorgeous nude.
Whichever category of Katherine that appeals to you most will keep your beauty routine simple and streamlined. Let it go on record to say that Katherine Cosmetics is a name that you will be extremely familiar with in the coming years. Have you tried anything from this brand? What are your thoughts?
