Catrice launched their new Spring/Summer makeup collection of 2017 and I was all over it. If you're not familiar with the brand you for sure have been missing out! Catrice Cosmetics is a budget friendly, drugstore makeup brand that has amazing makeup products of the best quality. Today I am reviewing a full face of their new makeup releases with some of the eye catchers: a brand new foundation, a new illuminating primer, contouring lip products, liquid metal eyeshadows and so much more! Here is a review of all the products I have tried and whether I think the Catrice Cosmetics 2017 makeup collection is a hit or miss. Let's have a look!
This primer is amazing and my new best friend as it gives a gorgeous 'new and improved skin' effect. It's hydrating yet very primer-like as it doesn't lack the tackiness to make sure your foundation stays put and it has a very pleasant flowery scent to it. Love!
The new Catrice Cosmetics foundation is not a must have in my opinion, in fact I feel like the formula was kept very standard, it's a simple basic Catrice foundation. It's nothing new or improved, especially compared to last year when Catrice really hit it off by releasing the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation! They have 4 shades available and I got nr 010 Nude Beige.
The consistency of the Made To Stay Makeup is fluid, the formula oxidizes a lot (like ALL Catrice foundations do unfortunately) and is quite drying even though I have combination skin. I also find that it gets into fine lines and is prone to being patchy. I'm not impressed at all, I would have loved to see a stick foundation instead. Find a review of an amazing budget friendly stick foundation here and more awesome low budget foundations here.
This is something I never expected from Catrice: lightening makeup drops to change and lighten the color of any foundation you might have in your stash. It's a great solution when your face products don't match your skin tone at this time. Right along with the lightening transformer drops Catrice also released a darkening one.
If there is one product from this collection that you absolutely need to try it is this Anastasia Beverly Hills-like ultra precise eyebrow pencil from Catrice, I bought nr 020 Medium. The tip is superfine, the formula is pigmented, super smooth, it applies easily and lasts forever! I couldn't quite believe the price tag at first, only €2.99-? For an amazing brow pencil? After checking how much product this actually contains it made a lot more sense.
This is a makeup product that didn't quite do it for me, even though I was looking forward to trying this the most, out of everything in this new collection. The dow foot applicator of this cream eyeshadow is too large to work with on the eyes and the formula itself is difficult to blend using fingertips or brushes. It looses pigmentation in the process and makes the overall look seem patchy and weird.
The Glam & Doll mascaras is a line that is all too familiar when it comes to Catrice Cosmetics makeup and it is back again in 2017. I like the Glam & Doll formulas, I'm currently enjoying the Glam & Doll False Lashes edition and I was wondering whether this new mascara was going to win me over.
I immediately loved the look of the new Catrice lip pencils, they are so sleek and almost look like they belong to a high end makeup brand. They also remind me of the H&M Beauty Lip Definers I'm obsessed with at the moment, I think they could be a great dupe. For the color selection of the Lip Foundations Catrice, mainly focused on nude shades. There are 4 lipliners available and I'm ready to purchase all of them!
The color selection of the Catrice Velvet Matte Lipliners is very different, much darker! They have 9 lip pencils available and I purchased nr 020 Love Among The rosewood Trees.
Makeup contouring is at its all time high and so is 'contouring' the lips quite a trend at the moment. The Catrice Ombre Two Tone Lipsticks is a range that is made to immediately give your luscious lips dimension in one easy swipe (see image below). The lipsticks are diamond shaped and come in gorgeous very high end-like packaging. I like the formula: it's pigmented, moisturising, long wearing and pretty, but the 'ombre' part is where I'm not that impressed.
