Catrice has already launched their Autumn/Winter makeup collections and once again I had the opportunity to test three of their new products. I think Catrice is improving season by season, the quality of the products is obviously great considering the price, but the packaging of their limited editions is becoming much more elegant as well.
In my opinion, the most exciting product is the Liquid Lip Powder – Ultra Matt in a hot pink shade Spotted on Pink-erest 09. I really didn’t know what to expect as I’ve tried a powder lipstick before and its longevity wasn’t perfect. However, this Liquid Lip Powder is hands down the best matt lip gloss I own. The pigmentation doesn’t look that intense on the picture – and the lip gloss is actually much pinker – but becomes completely opaque when applied on the lips. I’m sure I’ve gone six hours with one application in the morning, drank coffee and even ate without having to make any touch-ups. Of course it can be a bit drying on the lips, but this is the price to pay for perfect matt lips, isn’t it? There are five more shades available in Müller and I have yet to get at least another one or two!
I’m not that quickly satisfied with brow products and I can proudly say that I adore the Brow Palette Matt & Glow in 01 Now Flash Lights. This is the lightest palette of the two and works great on my dark brown brows, but I’m not that sure it is light enough for those with lighter hair. The palette consists of three compartments, a wax you can sculpt your brows with, a matt powder for a natural finish as well as a light-reflecting powder for glow finish. Although I usually hate small brushes that come with palletes of this kind, this one is so cute and actually great to work with! I really love how my brows look after the application, the combination of wax and powder really make it so easy to shape the brows and hold them in place for the entire day.
The second lip product is actually part of the Dawid Tomaszewski limited edition, a gorgeous line that is incredible just to look at, not to mention that the products are just as amazing. I received the Wild Matt Lip Colour in shade Unconventional Violet. The name fits this lippie perfectly, I’ve really had some issues to test it out properly as I think the color is slightly too bold to wear it to work! Nevertheless, its texture is very creamy and pleasant to wear, but I always have to use a lip scrub the night before as it can quickly become patchy on the lips. I would love to try the Fashion Flash Highlighter from the same collection, it looks gorgeous! Have you spotted any of these products at your nearest drugstore? :)
