Hello lovelies :D
I have a confession to make. I love Catrice. At this point I am basically ready to be initiated in the Catrice Lovers Forever cult. While some of their products do not amaze me, most products are true drugstore gems. My daily make up routine includes at least a few Catrice products sometimes even only Catrice products. I guess that speaks volumes. It was quite hard to pick only 5 items, nut I must say that these are really items that I reach for daily.
CATRICE DEFINING BLUSHES
I currently own three of these (the hot pink blush called pinkerbell found it's new home with Tamara from Our way every day) and I love them all to bits. The formula is really nice and from time to time they put out a spectacular colour. Although the shade range is a bit lacking in my opinion (every company should have more colours in their blush range... just sayin'), the shades available are quite neat and they usually come out with new colours every year.
PRIME AND FINE PROFESSIONAL CONTOURING PALETTE (010 ASHY RADIANCE)
Honestly, contouring was never easy for me. I usually skipped it, because it can look really unnatural, but then this product came along and it changed my contouring routine for good. Both, highlight and the contour shade, look really natural on my skin and they blend nicely, which is a big plus for me :D
BEAUTIFYING LIP SMOOTHER (060 BLACKBERRY MUFFIN)
I love all colours from the Beautifying lip smoother line, but this one has a special place in my heart, because of one simple fact... it is berry! Well slightly berry. Honestly anything berry is good in my book and of course this colour is no exception. It gives my lips a nice juicy colour with a bit of shine. It sadly does have a bit of glitter, but the glitter is not visible once the product is on the lips and you also can not feel the glitter.
ULTIMATE STAY LIPSTICK (070 PLUM & BASE)
I like all of the lipsticks from Catrice, that I have tried thus far, but this colour I adore. It is called 070 Plum & Base and is a nice dark plum shade. This lipstick has a really nice formula that is slightly hydrating and glides nicely on the lips. It also feels really nice on the lips and it is not strongly scented. While it does not last as long as my Wet'n'Wild lipstick, it is not as drying, which means that it is more suitable for everyday use.
ABSOLUTE MATT EYESHADOW PALETTE
In my opinion this is an absolute essential. The palette is purely matte with a nice range of basic neutrals. No matter what make up you like to wear, you need eyeshadow like that. I love to use this palette with more colorful palettes, to make the overall look more polished and less 'screamy'. I also sometimes mix the third and the last eyeshadow and use them in my eyebrows, since they make a nice eyebrow colour for me. I feel like this is one of my staples in my collection and, if I could have only one palette all my life, this one would probably be the palette :D
There are of course more products that I like from Catrice, but those are the ones I use on a daily basis. I seriously can not imagine doing my make up without these products.
What are your favorite products from Catrice (or any other brand)?
Thank you for reading :D
Have a nice day :)
