New from Catrice: Liqiud Metal Eyeshadows and Pure Shine Color Lip Balm

 
 
 
 
 
 

For a countless time, Catrice, possibly my most favourite European drugstore brand has impressed a lot of  beauty enthusiasts including myself. The new collection boasts some new eyeshadow formulations called the Liqiud Metals, two new lipstick formulation; Gel Color Shine Lipstick and Pure Shine Color Balm, new Made to Stay Eye Highlighter Crayon and Pencil, a blush tint, new our called Pinkerbell in their Defining Blush range and four new mascaras. 

The good thing is it is part of the permanent collection so, you don't have to rush to get them. What caught my eyes were the Liquid Metal eyeshadows and the Pure Shine Lip Color Balm (you know I have an unhealthy addiction to lip crayons, right?). The Liquid Metal eyeshadows are supposed to give a spectacular metallic effect and the Pure Shine Color Bam is said to give a sheer colour with an ultra glossy finish that delicately melts on the lips. Both products are made in Italy which means they are finely made and I can tell from the quality of the powder and the balm.

I bought three colours form the Liquid Metal Eyeshadow range which are:
- 020 Gold n' Roses: a pink champagne colour which reminds me M.A.C All That Glitters

- 070 Gold Leaf Me: a khaki green colour which reminds me of a Dior eyeshadow shade form the Bonne Etoille palette. This colour will be perfect for the coming fall season.

- 080 Mauves Like Jagger: a purple greyish taupe colour which reminds me of M.A.C Satin Taupe and Chanel Fauve.

The Liquid Metal eyeshadows contain one gram more product than the normal single eyeshadow from Catrice. There are 9 beautiful shades in total.

Verdict:
The texture of the eyeshadow is smooth and buttery. The powders are very finely milled and there was a little fallout as with any other metallic and glittery shadows. All of them are consistent in pigmentation, evenness and texture.


Then, I also  bought only one colour from the Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm which is:
- 030 Don't Think Just Pink: a beautiful midtone pink which reminds me of the the Dior Jelly Lip Pen in Gaia which I just hauled last month.

Verdict:
Well where I can start? Can I just say that this is so amazing? Like it says it melts with the warmth of the lips making the colour glides smoothly across. Oh, I love the finish of this Pure Shine Colour Lip balm. It's glossy and comfortable on the lips. It does not emphasize any lip lines or dryness. It is also moisturizing. The colours are all so beautiful with quite a few selections of nudes and brights. This will seriously be in my top 3 favourite lip crayons.

Swatches to compare all the colour they remind me of will be coming up soon in another post. 

So,  onto the next fun part which is........drumroll please... I am going to do a giveaway on this blog!! This giveaway will contain a new set of ll the products I have talked above!!
