Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer

The Catrice Liquid Camouflage concealer is one that every blogger under the moon has raved about including Tati from GlamLifeGuru and Sinead from TheBeautifulTruth.ie. I personally have been trying it out for the past couple of weeks and to be honest have found it well deserving of the rave reviews it has gotten.

Considering it only retails for 3.99 euros it gives such amazing high coverage that doesn’t feel thick or heavy on the skin.  It has a gel-like formulation to it, that makes it feel really lightweight so it’s not a problem to use this under the eyes. In fact it works great at covering dark circles and blue veins with settling into fine lines.

It comes with a doe-foot applicator that is slightly longer than your typical doe-foot applicator which I really like as it allows you to apply the right amount of product in a single swipe motion. A tube of this concealer contains 5mls of product or 0.16 fluid ounces.

I’m currently using the shade 007 Natural Rose however I do feel like it is a touch too dark for me so next time I will definitely be re-purchasing it in a lighter shade. That said I do want to try some new concealers out once this is finished so please do leave me some recommendations of your favourites below.

Catrice Cosmetics Glam & Doll Mascara

When you ask most people what’s the one thing they can’t live without when it comes to their makeup, they will generally say mascara. Why? Because it’s probably the easiest thing to pop on that instantly make you look 10 times more awake. Which is why it’s so important to find a good mascara that actually works exactly how it says it will on the tube. One that I found that does this recently is the Catrice Glam & Doll Mascara.

SAM_4532

This mascara comes in a really pretty lavender tube and claims to sculpt the lashes whilst added volume and definition to them. The color of it is straight up black and I have to say the pigmentation of it is great. It’s a nice strong black, there is no ashiness with it that can happen sometimes with lower end mascaras.

SAM_4533

The wand surprised me a bit when I first pulled it out as this is a volumising mascara so I expected it to have a big chunky wand. It’s actually rather slim, which weirdly I prefer. It makes it so easy to get every single lash and coat them evenly with product. I also found the slim wand makes it easier to apply the mascara to the lower lash line as well.

SAM_4535

The bristles on the wand are fairly short which makes me happy as this is a plastic wand and with the amount of times I have stabbed myself in the eye because some mascara have long spikes on their wands is insane. And it hurts, so the short bristles make sure I don’t hurt myself in my mascara application process.

All in all I think this is a great mascara if you’re looking for one that will add volume to the lashes without breaking the bank. I found it lasted all day on my lashes without losing the curl and I would definitely repurchase it again.

Catrice Active Warrior Limited Edition Collection

The Gym is definitely the one place were makeup is a big no no. When you work out, the pores on your skin enlarge in order for the skin to breath and so any makeup on your skin would be absorbed and these would probably then lead to breakouts. But that said I know some people can’t go t the gym without popping a little something on before hand. Catrice Cosmetics has definitely come to their rescue with the release of this new collection called Active Warrior. All of the products in this collection are waterproof, sweatproof and long-lasting which is everything you need when it comes to products designed for the gym. The collection is limited edition and only available for the month of March and April so if you want anything from it I recommend you head to your nearest Catrice Cosmetics stand.

Catrice Cosmetics Lip Dresser Lipsticks

I have to say I absolutely love it when brands with a low price tag take inspiration from high end brands in making and formulating their products and that’s exactly what Catrice Cosmetics did with these gorgeous lipsticks. Inspired by the very practical click button dispenser of the ByTerry Stylo Pens these lipsticks are probably some the best for popping into your handbag for on the go.

SAM_4240

I have to stress that when it comes to taking inspiration from high end brands, the lower priced brand doesn’t always get it right in that they just simply copy the high end brand and stick their logo onto it. Catrice Cosmetics hasn’t done that with these, it’s simply taken the way the product is dispensed from the packaging and adapted it into it’s own brands aesthetic and design so well done Catrice.

SAM_4241

Like I said the only thing that’s the same with these lippies as the ByTerry ones is the clickable dispenser that’s at the base of the pen/packaging. Other than that they are worlds apart. These lipsticks come in a gorgeous sleek black rounded tube that has a click-on lid which also holds the label as to what shade the lipstick is. I personally couldn’t resists picking up two of these because the shade range is so natural and faltering that all the shades can easily be worn on a daily basis without being over-done.

SAM_4244

The first shade that I purchased is the shade 010 Simply Natural Perfection and this is a soft english rose shade that looks amazing on almost any skin tone. I personally found the formulation of these super comfortable on the lips. They definitely have a satin finish to them so they aren’t long lasting but I did find them to last well up until you decide to eat something.

SAM_4247

The second shade that I have is 020 When the Sun Goes Brown and this is more of a mauve nude shade with a deep brown undertone running through it. I will say the only downside to these lippies is that you do only get 1.4 grams of product in the bullet which in comparison to a regular lippie, 6 grams, is only a quarter of the amount.

SAM_4249

The Catrice Cosmetics Lipdresser lipsticks retail only for 5.50 euros each and can be bought from any Catrice Cosmetics stand as well as the Inish Pharmacy website which I have added the link to below.
