Thanks to CATRICE Cosmetics Singapore (special thanks to Annie Ng), I got the chance to try a whole lot of their products and am absolutely thrilled to share my opinions with you!
Here’s a sneak peek of the loot that I received, taken from my Instagram account. Do follow me on Instagram to get the latest updates! With so much stuff to talk about, I decided to divide them into 2 posts; Face & Nails and Eyes & Lips.
To achieve a flawless face, I hope these Catrice Cosmetics All Round Concealer Palette and Photo Finish 18h Liquid Foundation are able to help me.
All Round Concealer Palette SGD$6.90
I usually do not utilize coloured concealer to colour correct my imperfections, but this concealer palette certainly made it easier for me if I ever need it. With a creamy consistency, it blends easily into my skin and has a light to medium coverage. The lightest shade is perfect to brighten my under eyes and I love how I can mix and match to get a perfect shade for my skin tone.
Photo Finish 18h Liquid Foundation in 020 Rosy Beige
Immediately reminding me of Revlon’s Photo Ready foundation, Catrice offers a more affordable choice that claims to provide the same benefit. With a gel-like consistency, it emits a Jasmine scent while I personally like. However, I would recommend those who has sensitive skin to patch test it first to prevent any break outs.
Applied this foundation on half of my face and was amazed at how well the coverage is. It managed to even out my skin tone and at the same time covered my dark eye circles. Impressive, I’m pleasantly surprised!
Since they named the product Photo Finish, I would expect that the foundation works well with photos. I took one with flash and one without. So far, I’m loving the finish it gives my skin and loves how it doesn’t portray a white cast when flash is used. Thumbs up!
Moving on to more base products, adding color to the face.
Multi Colour Blush in 060 Strawberry Frappucino SGD$7.90
A blush that consists of 4 different tones, it’s a little too powdery for my liking. However, after taking some time to blend properly, it actually does sits quite nicely on the cheeks.
Individual swatches parallel at the bottom row while the single swatch at the top is a mixture of all the colours. The darkest shade portrays a natural rosy pink to the cheeks while the lightest powder pink blush emits a slight sheen. Gorgeous blush!
Skin Finish Compact Powder in 020 Natural Beige SGD$7.90
Infused with light-reflecting pigments with a mattifying effect, this compact powder is available in a total of 4 shades. I love the packaging of Catrice Cosmetics with its clear acrylic-plastic compact.
Below shows a swatch of my finger swiping once across the powder, just look at how finely milled it is! I used it to set my foundation and loves how light it feels on the skin. Definitely doesn’t cake up!
Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder for Medium Skin in 030 Medium Bronze SGD$7.90
The fact that it’s matte definitely would win a lot of hearts; there aren’t many choices for matte bronzers in the market. Suitable for medium skin tones, Catrice Cosmetics’ Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder comes in a total of 2 shades. I love the imprints on the product itself; gorgeous!
Finely milled similar to their compact powder, the color shows up well on my skin tone (I’m a MAC NC25-30) and blends easily to portray a natural well sculpted face. Of course, applying on the cheeks offers the sun-kissed look, suitable for summer times!
Ultimate Nail Lacquer in 15 Denim Moore & 29 Will You Berry Me?! SGD$5.90 Each
How cute are the names of these nail polishes! Comes in a total of 40 shades and an affordable price of SGD$5.90 each, you can never be bored with your nail shades anymore!
Comes in a decent nail varnish bottle and a common brush, it’s easy to apply and would require the usual 2 coats to own an opaque professional finish.
Here’s my look of the day, using only Catrice Cosmetics products. Amazing makeup at affordable prices, what are you waiting for?
CATRICE Cosmetics is available at the following Guardian stores: Ang Mo Kio Central, CityLink, VivoCity, Harbourfront, Serangoon NEX, with 10 more stores to come!
