Catrice nude purism review 

hey beauties !

How has everyone’s week started ?
Recently I did a massive drugstore haul and will be sharing my reviews on them.
Today I will be reviewing some products from Catrice nude purism limited edition collection.
I had an amazing time testing out everything.. I dint even wait to reach home and opened and started swatching some of he blushes right in the car .. excitement !!

So most of the products from the haul were a complete hit as far as first impressions.. I will be reviewing rest of them in my upcoming posts 🙂

Coming back to this post-
Without further ado..  here are my thoughts-

NUDE EYE COLOUR QUATTRO IN TAUPE LESS

swatches clockwise from L-R

swatches clockwise from L-R

Product Description-
Neutrals. There are two convincing versions with four trendy nude colours each: sand, rosé and coffee are complemented by a cool light blue; taupe, pale pink and soft pink are accompanied by a dark aubergine. Both clusters of four contain matt as well as silky-shimmering shades that can be combined to create an expressive eye make-up look with fabulous shading. The smooth textures are long-lasting, offer maximum coverage and are easy to apply.

Price– € 4,49
Packaging– I have always loved catrice packaging. They come in a transparent acrylic case. It doesn’t feel cheap but it sturdy and travel friendly. The transparent case makes it easy to identify the colours. Personally I really find he packaging chic and classy.

Pigmentation and Texture-
They texture of these eye shadows are smooth as butter. They are equally very well pigmented and blends like a dream. The swatches are not doing justice to the actual product but let me assure you they are pigmented.

All 4 shades are well co-ordinated and apt for day-time looks.
FullSizeRender (11)

I dont know why the camera dint capture well. but roughly I have 1st colour from left in the crease, darkest shade in outer v and 3rd shade on the lid .
They perform well without a primer and of course with a primer it will extend the longevity of the shadows.

Overall its an amazing product considering the price and quality of the shadows. I will definitely be purchasing more quads in future as they are some of the best drugstore options in my opinion.


Next product I bought is
PURE SHIMMER HIGHLIGHTER
IMG_6959

Product description-
Skin Couture. The most beautiful (under)statement of this edition is a true eye-catcher: the Pure Shimmer Highlighter. The attractive 3D relief structure of the ultra-silky pressed powder is reminiscent of a softly shimmering honeycomb. Finely graded nude and light-reflecting pigments set subtle highlights on your face and neckline.

Price- € 4,49
Pigmentation and Texture-
This shimmer powder is champagney coloured, finely milled highlighter. It has that beautiful honey comb design.
The texture is a bit powdery at first but blends in the skin very nicely.
The pigmentation is also decent.
It is not that ‘one swipe’ highlighter ; you will have to build up to the required pigmentation.
But nevertheless, its is a very nice highlighter since it doesn’t contain any chunky shimmer particles. It gives a nice sheen and glow to the face.

A great drugstore option for the price and quality.


Lastly I bought 2 of their nail polishes

L-R Pure blue, barely pink

L-R Pure blue, barely pink

Product description- 
Pure Perfection. Coffee, rosé, taupe and cool light blue are welcoming the spring season and are a perfect match for the new nude shades of the designer dresses. The Nude Nail Lacquer promises ultimate colours – with and without effects – ultimate coverage and ultimate shine, which is sure to turn these limited shades into the must-haves of the season.
Price– € 2,49 approx
Texture, Brush and Quality
Frankly speaking, I have a love and hate relationship with these nail polishes.
The brush is a flat rounded brush which makes it easy to apply the colour.
What  love about them are their colours. baby pink and baby blue. perfect for spring summer. They dry fast as well.
What I don’t like about them is their texture. You have to apply 2 coats for desired level of pigmentation. First coat applies very streaky and patchy. When you apply the second coat, it still doesn’t look even, it still looks a bit patchy.
I have heard good reviews about their nail polishes, but these I would definitely pass on.

barely pink

I forgot to take picture of the blue one .


Final verdict
I am really impressed with the eye shadow quad and the highlighter. i would definetly purchase more of their eye shadows coz they have some amazing pigmentation. Even their singles are of amazing quality.

Hope you enjoyed my review.
Have a wonderful day lovlies!!

I have my eyes on the pure shimmer highlighter and the nail polishes and eye shadow quad.
The lipsticks when swatched were quite sheer for my taste but ofcourse thats a really stupid thing to complain since it has to be in the ‘nude frame’ , and as the name says ‘gentle’ lip colour; had to be sheer.

Reviews coming soon 🙂

Catrice Ultimate stay lipstick review

Hello guys !!
what’s up with everyone ??
Today I have a review on 2 of my currently favourite lipsticks.
They are the catrice ultimate stay lipsticks.

Catrice is one of my favourite drugstore brands. Every month there are new products which are limited editions. They have a very sleek and chic packaging. Especially he eye shadows which are come in transparent plastic cases which in my opinion looks very elegant.

Today I have their matt lipsticks to review.

Intensive colours and a trendy satin-matt finish. The highly pigmented, longlasting texture has a convincing high coverage without drying out the sensitive skin on your lips. A lovely companion for every day.

Packaging These lipsticks come in a black matte cylindrical tube which is very sturdy.
Price– 4,49 €
Texture and Pigmentation These lipsticks have a satin matt finish. They don’t feel heavy or drying on the lips. Even though they are matt, they feel quite comfortable on the lips.
They have a decent amount of pigmentation. One swipe gives enough colour. The colour can be built up.
Staying power– 5 to 6 hours with snacking and drinking. I usually dont mind the staying power as I prefer reapplying every 3-4 hours.

Colours I will review 020 All that she wants , 030 Wood you love me

This is my perfect nude colour. It has a right amount of peach and some brown for my everyday colour. It doesn’t make me look dead.

Overall I am very impressed with these lipsticks. They are affordable, good colour range, nicely pigmented and non-drying. 
They are not very long wearing but do last for a decent amount of time.
They are definitely a steal for the price and quality. I would purchase more colours in future.

I hope you liked my review.
Have an amazing day beauties 🙂
