Catrice IcoNails Gel đź’…🏻

Catrice Cosmetics has launched their IcoNails Gel Nail Polishes that I mentioned in my recent post on their Provocative Collection. They have revamped their entire nail polish range into this new gel formula. There are a whooping 45 shades available and they only retail for 2.95 euros. The great thing about these is that there is no rush to run out and get them as these are part of permanent range. Below I will be posting images of some of the shades though not all of them otherwise it would be a super long post of just images. Let me know if you plan to pick up any of these polishes for the summer 🙂

Provocative by Catrice

A while back ago I did a huge overview post about the Provo Catrice [Limited Edition] collection and recently I was lucky enough to be sent some bits from it. This collection really brings together a lot of the trending makeup that’s popular nowadays, such as softly lined eyes and softly stained lips. I personally absolutely love this collection as it’s so beautifully designed in packaging and the quality of these products is just incredible especially considering that most of these are less than 6 euros.

SAM_3098

If your thinking of just getting one item from this collection then I highly recommend you pick up just the eye palette C01 Une Touche ProvoCATRICE. This palette has four beautiful shades and one eyeliner shade. The only real drawback of it is that there is no mirror, a mirror in my opinion would have made it the perfect palette for travelling.

SAM_3100

All of the shades are super neutral but highly pigmented. You get two matte shades (Shade 1 & 4) and two shimmer shades (Shade 2 & 3). My favourite has got to be shade 2 which is a gorgeous dual-chrome gold/peach reflect shade. For the eyeliner shade I highly recommend wetting your brush with a bit of setting spray or MAC Fix Plus before dipping into it, as applying it dry I found it to go on slightly patchy.

Ever since discovering the wonderful blushes that are the Isadora Perfect Blush I’ve been slightly hooked on blush so when I saw that there were OmbrĂ© blushes in this collection my excitement was through the roof.

SAM_3103

Rightfully so, these blushes are absolutely a dream to put onto the cheeks. They’ve got amazing colour payoff and blend beautifully without clinging to any patchiness on the face. I have both shades from the range and the first of them is the lighter of the two.

SAM_3104

This is the shade C01 Raspberry Belle and is a lovely soft pink shade. Both of these blushes have very fine shimmer in them but that simply adds a healthy glow to cheeks when their applied.

SAM_3175

My only real warning about these blushes is that there is a lot of powder kickback when your dipping your brush into the powder. I highly recommend you tap off the excess ofthe brush before blending them onto your cheeks. Out of the two shades I have been personally reaching for the darker of the two, C02 Berry Bow

SAM_3106

This shade is a deeper richer version of the first blush even though looking at them in the pans they look completely different. On the cheeks though the are the exact same except this shade is just that hint more dark.

SAM_3177

This next product I actually purchased myself as I wanted to be able to review the entire makeup part of the collection for you guys (I didn’t get any of the nail polishes because I’m waiting for their Iconic Nails to launch-overview post coming soon!).

SAM_3107

This is the highlighter of the collection, though it sure doesn’t look that way. They’ve marketed it as a scented powder and yes it does have a nice subtle scent of cotton candy to it. I personally would compare this to the S&G Glow All Out powder which is a shimmery powder that can really be applied all over the skin to give you a slight dewy look to the skin. Oily skin people stay away from this product it isn’t your friend but for everyone else, go ahead it’s so beautiful. The shade is called C01 Transparent Shimmer.

SAM_3112

Lashes seem to be getting just bigger and bigger and I’ve seen some people rocking fake eyelashes just to go to work. Now I’m not as glamourous as that but I do like me a good strong eye look with mega lashes to complete it. This product will definitely help to achieve that. This is the Volume Lash Dust in the shade C01 IrresistibleEyes and it’s basically a translucent powder in brush-on form.

SAM_3113

I’ve seen Youtuber Melissa Alatorre apply to her first coat of mascara translucent powder, leaving it to dry and then going in with a second coat and they simply look Va Va Voom! This does the exact same thing. It’s simply easier and less messy to use. It has a  sponge tip to it that I really wish looked like an actual mascara wand but instead it’s just flat. I would say this isn’t the greatest product to use if you wear contacts as it could get on them.

SAM_3108

No makeup collection is complete without a few good lip products and this collection is no different. Keeping on the softly stained lips, this collection brings two gorgeous shades of Cushion Powder Lipsticks. These are lipsticks which are in powder form and are applied via a sponge tip.

SAM_3111

The actual lipstick comes in the lid of the product and you simply twist off the lid to apply with the sponge tip. I have to say these aren’t the easiest lipstick to apply because of the sponge being so soft and big. It tends to make getting a precise application very difficult. That said, the pigmentation of these is beautiful and they feel like velvet on the lips.

SAM_3179

The two shades are C01 Raspberry Belle and C02 Berry Bow and yes they do have the same names as the blushes 🙂 totally not a typo on my behalf.

SAM_3185

This collection, like I’ve said is limited edition and is available I would say up until the first few days of July so I highly recommend you pick it up as soon as possible if you’ve seen something you like.

Catrice Marina Hoermanseder Collection

Catrice Cosmetics have gone and done it again, releasing one of the most beautiful collections for the Spring. They have decided to collaborate with one of Berlin’s most famous fashion designers, Marina Hoermanseder. Now Marina is a designer that is well know for her signature design of including buckle styled belt details in all her clothing pieces and this is also reflected in this collection. Unlike most of my Catrice Cosmetics posts that I tend to do, in which I just use images for the products, today I actually have two products from the collection to review for you guys. I will of course pop information about the other pieces from the collection below also.

SAM_2814

As it’s a spring collection all the colours used for both the packaging and the products are light, pastel shades that really bring forth the idea of Spring. The eyeshadow palette, and I’ll be honest, I initially thought this was a blush, is presented beautifully in this rose gold compact that has a pink buckle belt design on the front. It has a mirror so major thumbs up from me. Inside you get four different shades of eyeshadow and they all have a embossing of, you guessed it buckle belts.

SAM_2815

The shadows themselves are super soft and buttery texture wise. The shades themselves really complement each other both on the eyes and in the pan. This palette really only let’s itself down when it comes to the actual pigmentation of the eyeshadows. The only one that has really any colour to it is the dark brown shade. The others are just a shimmer shadow tinted with the shade of the eyeshadow. They don’t really give any high intense colour at all.

SAM_2821

I personally would prefer this had she marketed it as a highlighter than an eyeshadow palette as the pink and gold shade look stunning on the tops of the cheekbones and in the inner corner.

SAM_2816

That said there is actually a highlighter within the collection and I have to say if you only want to buy one item from the collection get the highlighter. It’s simply stunning!!  Rather than being a pressed powder this highlighter actually comes in the form of highlighting pearls and so the packaging is actually a jar instead of a compact.

SAM_2817

The lid of the jar has Marina’s signature design embossed on it in rose gold along with her actual signature. That is something that comes on all the products, her signature which I think is a nice personally touch on her behalf.

SAM_2825

The highlighter is a mixture of white iridescent and pink iridescent pearls that when mixed together give a very intense, very pigmented silver shimmer shade. If I had to compare it to anything already on the market it would be to the Bareminerals Glow Powder that was just recently released. The eyeshadow palette retailed for 5.50 euros and the highlighting pearls for 4.50 euros and are available until the end of the April. Remember this collection is Limited Edition so if you want anything from it you must get it quick. The rest of the collection is below along with the prices of everything.
