Review: Kaviar Gauche For CATRICE (Eyes, Face, Lips, Nails)

Untitled-1Following the successful collaboration at Berlin Fashion Week at the beginning of the year, Kaviar Gauche and CATRICE have reunited to present a mutually developed make-up collection for the most beautiful day in a woman’s life – her wedding day!

Kaviar Gauche is a Berlin based fashion label specializing in modern bridal couture and since their launch in 2004, they’ve created new bridal collections every year since 2009 – nothing could seem more right that a hot new bridal fashion label and a CATRICE collaboration.

The moment I laid my eyes on this new range of cosmetics I knew instantly I had to have it. Okay I may or may not have scoured stores for a month long for this limited edition range to launch but it was so worth the wait! The range boasts soft pastel shades and incredibly gorgeous gold printed packaging! Here’s what you’ll find with the Kaviar Gauche range:

Gilding Eye And Face Palette:

Untitled-4Included in the palette are 6 eye shadows (4 of which are the same shades as the 4 nail polishes), 1 contouring powder, 1 highlighter, 1 eye pencil and 1 double ended applicator bush.

The palette was probably my least favorite item from the collection as I found that the colors weren’t pigmented enough – even the darkest of the eye shadows were hardly noticeable and I had to re-apply most of the eye shadows. I suppose those with a lighter skin tone will appreciate the palette more or if you wanted to go for the no-makeup-makeup look. The highlight and contouring powders were also quite light so it didn’t do too well on my darker complexion. I liked that they included a white eye pencil as the white eyeliner is very much on trend right now.

Price: R140.95

Blurring Powder Pearls:

IMG_5055So the blurring powder pearls have become one of my favorite items in my makeup collection! It looks just as pretty on your face as it looks in its container and it leaves your skin looking flawless and glowing as it has light-reflecting pigments. It makes for a perfect highlighter that can be used on the high points of your cheeks. A definite must-buy!

Price: R79.95

Nail Lacquer:

Untitled-2Since Kaviar Gauche is a modern bridal couture brand you can forget about the classic French mani on your wedding day. Light pink, soft lilac, pastel apricot and warm grey are the new classics when it comes to modern bridal makeup. I’ve always been a fan of CATRICE nail polishes and these new sophisticated shades are everything.

Butterfly Kiss and Love Me Tender have a slight tinge of sparkle, Cool Wonder and Honey Blossom are plain.

Price: R52.95

Gentle Lip Gloss:

Untitled-5There are 2 lip glosses included in the Kaviar Gauche Limited Edition range: Honey Blossom and Butterfly Kiss. There’s no major difference when applied on your lips as they look very similar. Honey Blossom has a tint of pink and Butterfly Kiss is a bit more sheer so would be perfect as a shine gloss over your favorite lipstick. Oh – they also smell like fudge! Mmm 🙂

Price: R61.95

For the most part I’m really happy with the Kaviar Gauche range and they look really pretty on my dressing table. All of the items can be purchased at participating Dischem stores and will be around until the end of September.

Have you purchased any of these items yet? What did you think?

XOXO
