As I’m sure everyone is aware that Cape Town has been experiencing what feels like a month long heatwave, so you can only imagine how excited I was to try these Catrice summer essentials, which are basically products to stay put on the face!
First of all everything in the range is matt or waterproof which makes for the most long wearing options!
A matt lip is not only a season must its the most long lasting option which means your lipstick will stay put even though the rest of your body feels like its melting into a giant puddle! L-R:, 060 Floral Coral, 140 Behind the Red Curtain and 070 Plum & Base. Matt lipsticks can be quite drying or can crack, these Catrice ones don’t do any of that. The finish is satin-matt, highly pigmented and very easy to apply as the bullet is a great shape to glide onto the lips, they also smell nice and available in SO many shades!
A waterproof concealer? Yes please! I think this was one of the things I was most excited to try out! My friend Hayls thought this could be a dupe for the infamous Collection Lasting Perfection, so I thought I’d show you what both wands look like as well as a swatches.
As you can see the Catrice Doe foot is larger than the Lasting Perfection and from the swatches below you can see the colour range is also not exactly the same.
This has to be my new favourite concealer, high coverage and perfect for under the eyes, doesn’t crease, long lasting and heck waterproof which makes it perfect for around the chin area and for leaky eyes!
I am becoming such a sucker for cheek products, I’ve always loved a glowy highlighter but my love for bronzer is growing I don’t know if its just because we’re in summer and for a pale face like mine you need to mimic a tan all the time! This Catrice Bronzing powder in 010 Golden Light (R89,95) is glowy and amazing for pale skin with little to no shimmer has the perfect browny tinge – no oranges around these faces please! I also think this will be a bronzer that could see be all year through as it can be built up and toned down, a must!
Blusher in 010 Love, Rosie! just look at those shades and the embossed print I almost didn’t want to use this! Again a matt part of the range which makes a big difference for me as I mainly own shimmer blushers. This Catrice blusher comes in 2 different shades this pinky one and a browner one (020 La-Lavender). Highly pigmented and leaves the cheeks looking slightly flushed, absolutely love this shade.
Now on to the fun part! You too can own some of these Catrice products all you have to do is enter below:
