It was rare for me to attend blog events, but when Kanebo Philippines invited me to attend their Bloggers’ Event for Kate Tokyo last May 23 at SnR Studio, I knew I had to say “Yes.” 

KANEBO Cosmetics is a leading Japanese producer of cosmetics that traces back its history to 1887. They are now available in more than 50 countries and regions throughout the World! Kanebo brands include Sensai, Impress, Blanchir Superior and Kate.


KATE debuted in 1997 with brand motto “No more Rules.” KATE styles are urban, sharp and cool. Liberated from fixed rules about makeup, KATE invites its users to make themselves up in styles and colors of their very own.

KATE has become the number one most-sold product on the Japanese brands. Recently, with all the success of KATE, the company decided to step up further by becoming KATE TOKYO.

Tokyo, a fashionable city where glamourous trends come and go. KATE, a brand representing the cool makeup style of this city, heads for the global stage, starting from 2014, etched with the name of TOKYO. Hence, KATE Tokyo was born.
