Catrice Velvet Matt Lip Cream Review & Swatches

Matte Liquid Lipsticks are hot right now, they are the ultimate must have of the moment and I'm so glad Catrice Cosmetics finally decided to release their own version: the Catrice Velvet Matt Lip Creams. They have six different shades available and I purchased two of them, 010 MidNude Season which is a muted mauve and 030 Hazel-Rose Royce which is a reddish, my lips but better color. Let's have a look!

Catrice has a lot in store for us: they claim their matt lip creams are high coverage, that they have a silky texture, that they're longlasting and leave the lips feeling wonderfully pampered. The lip creams are enriched with vitamine E and should give a nourished and light feeling.

The packaging was the first thing that struck me, it's beautiful. I love how sleek it is and how easily you can pick a color of your choice. The dow foot applicator it comes with I'm also a fan of, it's thick but picks up just the right amount of product. As soon as I received the press release about the new Catrice Fall/Winter makeup collection, these were the first items on my wish list, so are they a hit or miss? 

Unfortunately I'm quite disappointed about these Catrice Velvet Matt Lip Creams. They aren't full on color, they're streaky, sticky and they perform more like a liquid lip tint than a lip cream. The end result is pretty after applying a couple of layers, and the scent of the product is pleasant, but as a lip cream this formula is a total fail. The product should be opaque and completely matt and it just isn't, this matt lip cream barely even dries down. I don't recommend them at all if you're looking for an affordable matte liquid lipstick, you'll end up just as bummed out as me. Check out my Best & Worst Matte Drugstore Liquid Lipsticks for more and better low budget options! If these lip creams wouldn't have been labeled as having a mattifying effect, they actually would be quite a nice lip product.

  1. These shades look lovely, too bad the formula is not working! I haven't tried Catrice before but I see them everywhere! There are so many brands out there with great matte liquid lipsticks so I will make sure I avoid these. Such a disappointment!

    PS Your photos are amazing! x


    1. If you ever spot them again, take a look at their matte single eyeshadows, shine appeal fluid lipsticks and defining blushes :) those are some of my favorites of the collection!

    2. Oh and thank you :D I really appreciate your compliment <3

  2. Ahhh! So sad to hear these don't work out bc the colours are looking fab!

  3. I've never heard of this brand before. The shades look really pretty. It's a shame they didn't live up to your standards :( Great review!
