Taday I am doing my first review on products from the brand Catrice Cosmetics! It´s quite a popular brand in Europe, mainly because they offer a big variety of amkeup products in a budget!
I am going to start with the two items that really impressed me most, because I wasn´t expecting them to be so good!
CATRICE LIQUID CAMOUFLAGE High Coverage Concealer waterproof 005 Light Natural
This concealer has a thicker creamy consistency and dries very quickly . It’s also very pigmented, with medium coverage, but you can build it up to almost full coverage. It’s not drying and it also didn´t emphasize the small lines around my eyes. It’s formula is waterproof, which makes it a good concealer for the beach or swimming pool! It comes in a plastic tube with a black top, with 5 ml of product, and you can get it in 3 different shades.
Catrice says this products is “the ultimate creamy, light concealer for radiant eyes and a fresh appearance: light-reflecting pigments and medium coverage combined with moisturizing ingredients hide shadows under your eyes and other small imperfections in no time at all. Its gentle texture feels pleasant on the sensitive skin around your eyes.”
Normally I don´t agree with everyting the brands say, but in this case the Catrice description from this products is quite accurate! For me this concealer is a little bit similar to the Touche Eclat from YSL,however it´s packaging is a silver twist-pen.
CATRICE HIGH GLOW MINERAL HIGHLIGHTING Powder 010 Light Infusion
The brand claims this is “a baked Highlighting Powder with minerals and ultra-fine, light-reflecting pigments for a radiant look. The delicate texture offers variable coverage, which can be intensified with repeated application. Can be applied as a subtle shimmer on the entire face for a fresh complexion or to accentuate the cheeks, temples and neckline. Glow look!”
To be honest I didn´t fall in love completely with this product! It works well in the sense that you get the glow, but in my age I am looking for something different and not so shimmery! I also felt that the texture was a little bit dry and powdery. But besides that, I would say this is a good highlighting powder for beginners, taking into account the price and ammount of product you get.
Catrice says “the Highlighting Powder comes as a soft and velvety powder with a pearl effect. This innovation leaves radiant light reflections as well as a soft glow on the skin. …”
For me this powder was really soft and had a lightly consistency. The pigmentation is really good, speacially the Stardust, and it can easily be diffused and blended in the skin! It´s the perfect Highlighting in the Drugstore for those who desire a subtile glow!
CATRICE DEFINING BLUSH 020 Rose Royce
Catrice says this blush ads Cheek Charm! It´s a “…ultra-fine, highly-pigmented powder blush with vitamin C and E …”, that “…spreads easily, sets fresh accents, emphasizes your cheekbones and models the contours of your face.”
I have to agree with the claims of the brand again! I love the silky-soft texture of this blush and the fact that it was so easy to apply and blend! It also provided a radiant complexion, that I wasn´t expecting from a blush in the drugstore! Definitely I am going to buy it in more shades!
CATRICE Prêt-à-Lumière Longlasting Eyeshadow 030Diner En Blan /010 Crème Bruné
The brand says this “…eyeshadows have an extraordinary hybrid formula that unites high colour-intensity with the weightless feel of a feather.” It also claims that it´s formula cream-based powder texture “…offers maximum colour pay-off with just one application.”
Again, I agree with Catrice claims, and I am really happy with this eyeshadows! They are very pigmented, they have minimal fallout, and althought they don´t blend very easily, you can work them well. I am wearing this two eyeshadows in the makeup of the video posted above! I am going to purchase more, simply because I got curious about them!
CATRICE HIGHLIGHTING Eyeshadow 030 10001 Golden Nights
Catrice says “this eyeshadow captures the light and sets gentle highlights on the entire eyelid, the inner corners of the eye and directly beneath the brow. ” It also claims that it´s “… creamy powder texture is easy to apply and ensures gorgeous highlights and luminosity.”
I 100% agree with Catrice and I am in Love with this eyeshadow! Don´t have bad stuff to say about it!
CATRICE ABSOLUTE EYE COLOUR MONO 790 I Wear My Plum Glasses At Nigh
You can get a diverse colour spectrum in this collection from Catrice. The eyeshadows claim long durability, high coverage and various effects in matt, shimmering or pearly .
I reaaly liked the colour mentioned above, and I think it´s a perfect shade to use as a transition colour in your crease! This eyeshadows have good pigmentation, they are long lasting, soft and easy to blend ! I really recommend this Mono Eyeshadows in particular!
