So as a complete CATRICE newbie I was beyond excited to review their new Spring/Summer collection! I love that CATRICE Cosmetics offers you that high-end makeup look without breaking the bank – and I’m all about makeup affordability.
I got to try the new CATRICE Absolute Rose Eyeshadow Palette along with a few other products which I’ve added to my list of must-haves. Have a look at one of their Spring nail polish shades here. The palette consists of 6 beautiful shades from soft nudes to rosy shades. I particularly liked that you could easily transform your soft daytime look to a more dramatic smokey-eye night-time look within minutes and with just one palette.
Included in the palette is also a double-ended makeup brush. One side for application and the other side for blending those beautiful shades together. So there’s no need to have a collection of brushes to create this look. This palette retails for just R89.95* which is really affordable considering you can use this palette for day and night time makeup.
I used the CATRICE All Round Coverstick to cover up those dark circles underneath my eyes and other skin impurities. (R52.95)
I used the CATRICE Prime and Fine Eyeshadow Base before applying my eyeshadow. This helps to intensify the colours and ensures the long wear of your eyeshadow. (R61.95)
Shade 2 to cover the base of my eyelid
Shade 4 for the outer part of my eyelid
Shade 6 for the crease and lower part of my eyelid
Shade 3 to blend
Shade 1 to highlight under my eyebrow and the inner part of my eye
I used the CATRICE Jet Lash Speed Volume Mascara In Ultra Black (R79.95)
Lastly I finished off the look with CATRICE Luminous Lipstick in “Wood Rose Propose?”. The colour is a lot lighter than it looks. It’s very similar to a tinted lip balm with a fresh glossy look. I must add that it feels really good on your lips (R69.95)
