3 Mini Reviews - Catrice Make-Up Edition 01

 Hi guys. Happy Friday ! 

A while back Catrice send me some make-up goodies to try (and I bought some new ones the moment Red Square stocked them online... so be on the look-out for a few reviews on the brands in the next week or two ) , and I'm slowly testing them out at this stage. Today I'm sharing three of those products with you , and my thoughts on each one. 


Catrice Prime & Fine Eyeshadow Base
The Catrice Prime & Fine Eyeshadow base is a nude eyeshadow base / primer. I really had high hopes, since I LOVE the Essence Eyeshadow base ... But this was a little bit of a let down personally for me. It's a good primer, it does help my eyeshadow last longer, but it's not mind blowing in my opinion . If you're looking for a great eyeshadow base though ... I would recommend the Essence one rather. 

Catrice All Round Coverstick Concealer 
I'm a big fan of this concealer. The rounded tip makes it easy to apply on trickier places (like to cover the redness around my nose ... glide smoothly under my eyes )The formula is great too , doesn't look cakey at all , and works great to even brighten under your eyes. It's hard to find a concealer that will work to cover redness, pimples AND cover dark circles without looking cakey yet still blends easily , and this little gem I will surely replace once I finish it. I have mine in the colour 010 Nude - but it does come in different skin tone colours. 

Catrice Matt Mousse Make-Up
It's no surprise that I love testing out new foundations. So when this mousse make-up arrived I was so excited to try Catrice's version . So far I'm SUPER happy... It applies smoothly , blends easily ... And this colour suits me PERFECTLY . This foundation has quickly become my favourite, and even replaced my favourite everyday foundation . If I'm not sure what my day will be like -  I just reach for this foundation . 

This isn't a full coverage foundation, but it gives great medium coverage and lasts all day and really helps keep you matt. I do still use powder ( I'm using Catrice All Matt powder, and in combination with this I stay oil free for most of the day )

I'm in the colour 025 Light Beige. 




What's YOUR favourite Catrice product at this stage ? Any fun weekend plans ??

  3. I love your honest reviews... The foundation sounds amazing, but it's great you mentioned about the eyeshadow primer, I have greasy eyelids, so I'll rather try the Essence one.
