Hello lovelies :)
I have enough neutral matt colours in my stash already, so when I got this palette I wanted to give it to my sister, since I do not really need it. But I decided to try it out and I was really surprized with the quality of it.
The palette comes in a sleek plastic packaging with a transparent lid. Bottom of the packaging is black and it has some instructions for the look you can do with this palette. It contains 6g / 0.21 oz. of product (6 eyeshadows, 1g each). The packaging feels nice, aldough it is plastic and it is sturdy enough to survive traveling. You also get a double ended applicator with a brush on one end and a spondge tip applicator on another. It is not the best applicator but it is good for application on the go.
What Catrice says about this palette:Six longlasting matt shades that suit anyone and any occasion - Simply a must-have! The silky and smooth texture comes in a variety of matt shades from light to dark and can be combined easily. With double-ended brush for easy application.
This palette consists of only neutral matt colours, both cool and warm toned. All of the colours are a bit powdery in the pan, but there was no fallout (I always tap off excess of my brush). All of them blended nicely and did not appear patchy on my lids. The first colour (white) goes a bit sheer on the lids, but others are nicely pigmented.Eyeshadows lasted on me for good 9 hours an then started creasing on be, there was also a bit of fading.
The first shade is pure white, I especially like it for a highlight or blending out other shades. It is not the most pigmented but it can be more opaque if you pat it on the lids. the next shade is a brownish flesh colour that can also be used as a highlight or a blending shade, I especially like to use it on the lid or as a base colour for my make up. It is a bit too light to be a crease colour (at least for my skin colour)
Next two colours are quite similar, yet still a bit different. The first one is a cool taupe colour and the second one is warm based medium brown that is just a hint deeper than the taupe colour.
The last two shades are the darkest shades in the palette,one is a warm based dark brown and another one is a blackened brown colour. Both are pigmented and I like to use them for my eyeliner or for my brows.
All in all I was plesantly surprized with this palette. I like matt eyeshadows, but drugstore matt eyeshadows are usually not the best quality. I am sure many of us already have these colours in our make up stash, so it might not be a must have for us, but if you are starting with make up, or are in need of a nice drugstore matt neutral palette I think this would be a nice palette for you.
Did you try this palette or any other from the Catrice line?
Have a nice day :)
