A few months back, the lovely people from CATRICE Cosmetics sent me a care package filled with goodies from their range of cosmetics - from eye shadows, to base make-up, powder, lipsticks - this brand has all of it! New to Singapore, this brand's concept is somewhat alike to Essence Cosmetics, drugstore make-up at very affordable prices - but still not comprising on quality. Here is a review of some of my most favourite products!
Ultimate Moisture Fresh Skin Make-Up (Foundation) in 020 Sand
Effect Of the Ultimate Moisture Foundation Range - Brighter, Glowy, and Dewy Skin!
This foundation is great for those who desire dewy, glowy skin and the naturally radiant look! I wore this foundation out for an entire day - it held up all day, and my skin looked nice and fresh with minimal touch-ups! Oil-free too, its non-comodogenic hence it doesn't clog pores and is suitable for those with oily skin as well!
Infinite Shine Lip Gloss - in Pale Pink and Dark Orange Shades
Sheer glosses available in a large choice of 13 shades ranging from subtle to dramatic, Infinite Shine Lip Gloss guarantees gorgeous pampered lips without leaving behind a sticky sensation. My favourite has got to be the Pale Pink Shade, I'm a sucker for the Kim Kardashian rosy-lip look!
Ultimate Colour Lipstick - 050 Princess Peach
Highly pigmented and intense colour, the smooth and creamy texture of this range promises a gorgeous finish when applied on the lips! Ultimate Colour is available in 16 shades.
Ultimate Shine Lipstick - 200 Get the Nudes Paper!
This range of lipsticks has got to be my most favourite from CATRICE cosmetics! I've used it countless of times on photoshoots and brides, and it holds up reasonably well and the pigmentation of the product is amazing. All it took me to get to this lovely Barbie Pink lip was two coats of product! This perfect shade which was sent to me is a bonus as well - I love pink! <3 p="">
All-Round Concealer Palette
This concealer palette is great for all purposes - highlighting, contouring, concealing: it lives up to its name! Its creamy texture makes it a breeze to blend, and it holds up pretty well when set with a good loose or pressed powder.
Absolute Eye Colour in Yellow Submagreen
These eyeshadows have just the right pigmentation for folks who want a pop of colour on their eyes, but don't want to attract too much drama! This particular Yellow Submagreen palette is great for versatility, with the darker hues for the smoulder and the pop of yellow for intensity.
Here's a little make-up trial I did using the Absolute Eye Colour palette and a range of other CATRICE products!
On my face: CATRICE Yellow Submagreen Eyeshadow Palette, Ultimate Shine Lipstick in 200, CATRICE 18h Photo Finish Liquid Foundation in Rosy Beige, CATRICE Defining Blush in Pink
Here's a natural everyday look I did on myself using CATRICE products!
On my face: CATRICE Photo Finish 18h Liquid Foundation, CATRICE Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder and Smoothing Refiner, CATRICE Defining Blush, CATRICE Evolution 2-way Mascara
I have to say, the CATRICE 18h Photo Finish Liquid Foundation has got to be one of the best and most affordable foundation I have ever encountered in my make-up life. It gives a medium to high coverage, stays all day, oxidizes to a perfect shade, and doesn't melt on me in all weather conditions! It is my new recommended foundation - comparable to professional cosmetic brands. What's better? It only costs a mere SGD $12.90. Ten thumbs up! :)
CATRICE is available at the following GUARDIAN stores in Singapore:
Ang Mo Kio Central,
with ten more stores to pop up soon!
