  • Rei Ayanami Wears Red Lipstick in Second Collaboration With Makeup Brand KATE

    06.February.2021 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

    Global makeup brand KATE released its second animated video in collaboration with the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion on Tuesday (February 2) to promote its “KATE Red Nude Rouge (EV)” lipstick.

     

    “Rei Ayanami, Her First Lipstick, And the Results”

    Rei dons the vibrant red lipstick in the commercial.

    “No more rules, this is a red for me and red only,” is what KATE expresses in the promotional video.

    The person Rei was waiting for finally arrives, and she smiles, showing off the beautiful rouge tint on her lips.

    KATE Red Nude Rouge (EV) is a limited-edition online-exclusive in 4 designs

    How to

    KATE released the first Rei Ayanami commercial in November last year. In it, the original voice actress for Rei, Megumi Hayashibara, reprised her role in the animated trailer which was created by illustrator and animator Yoneyama Mai. It exploded on Japanese social media, resulting in this sequel.

     

    KATE’s slogan is “NO MORE RULES” which encourages consumers to pick the colours they want to wear themselves without being tied down by society. This concept has led them to innovate in their makeup products, and is a concept that they believe connects with Rei Ayanami from the Evangelion franchise, which is what led to this collaboration.
