Breast Cancer Awareness Make-Up look with Catrice !

 Hi guys ! Hope you had a great weekend !

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month , and as part of this , Catrice Cosmetics would like to cheer survivors and support the fighters. 

I was asked to come up with a fun pink inspired look. I will show the look at the end but I'm also giving a mini-review about each product and a little give-away in the end too !

Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow Mauves Like Jagger
This is a stunning metallic eyeshadow colour , and really gives a liquid like effect. I love how the eyeshadow is shaped too with little "waves" in the eyeshadow. I used this on the centre of my eye in the make-up look.

Catrice Better Than False Lashes Ultra Black Mascara
One word - WOW ! I love the volume this mascara gives your lashes .. But the best part for me personally is this has staying power. I do tend to "rub" my eyes through the day, and this mascara stayed in place. I even had to work to take it off at night .. Just love this tube of mascara.

Catrice Defying Blush - Rose Royce
This blush gives the perfect rosy cheeks for any look.

 Catrice Long Lasting Lip Pencil *Waterproof*-The Perfect Pinkini
This is a GREAT lip pencil. Applies smoothly , and I'm pretty sure this in combination with the Made To Stay Lip Smoothing Lip Polish made my lips stay perfectly pink the whole day. 
Catrice Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish - Mission PINKpossible
Since I have SUPER sensitive lips, I was a little sceptical to use this lip polish. BUT I was pleasantly surprised. This didn't irritate my lips at all, and as I mention above with the lip pencil, this is a long wearing lip product... And it REALLY does have staying power. The lip combo lasted me a good 12 hours without any touch ups, and the pink looked just as bright as when I first put it on. REALLY impressed.

So the complete make-up look :

  13. Oh, you are so cute! You should post more pics of yourself here. :-)

    The "Better than False Lashes" mascara sounds really good; it's like Catrice is trying to one-up Maybelline's "Falsies," as if saying: "Oh, your mascara can make the wearer look like she's wearing false lashes? Well, ours will make hers look EVEN better than that!"

  14. Those products look amazing , haven't tried any Catrice products before
