Lets start by saying what a great affordable brand Catrice Cosmetics are. There products range from €2-€12. I have used many of their products in the past and I was so excited to get to try more. 

First I am going to talk about their blush shading palette. There are a few options in this range and I got the shade 'Rock 'n' Rose'. This has 2 shimmery shades and a matte. You can see from the pic that these are highly pigmented and so smooth. A light hand is really needed here. 

Next we have this FAB nail polish. I already have 2 of catrices nail polishes and I love them. I got the shade 'A wink of Pink'. Above is 2 coats of the nail polish and this goes on so smooth. 

This is a eyeshadow trio from Catrice and I got the shade 'Meet the gemstones'.  When I first touched and swatched these they felt very chalky. I was disappointed. However, It must have been the glitter spray, overlay. Once that is wiped off, you have 3 great wee eyeshadows. I love the first white shade. A great inner corner/browbone Highlight . 

Catrice 12hr Matt Mousse Foundation. This is a very lightweight foundation and I would say it is a sheer/buildable coverage. Fantastic for people who need a light foundation for everyday. 

The eyeliner is amazing. High pigmentation for a drugstore eyeliner. 

Here is a pick of it on my eye. 

In this pic I have on the eyeshadow stick in the shade 'Lavender McQueen'.

I had to re dip this product a few times to get a good coverage on the eyelid. If you don't really use eyeshadow, this could be a quick and easy way to start. For me though It was my least fav product of the bunch!

This 'All matt plus' powder is sooooo velvety soft. Its smooth and sits fab on the skin. I loved it. This is a fab drugstore powder. The only snag is, I was sent the shade 'warm beige' and for me it was to dark. I like a translucent shade to set my face. I will be getting this again though in my colour. This adds a great wee bit of extra coverage to your foundation aswell. 

Luminous lips in the shade 'Dress Code: Nude'. This is a very soft Nude lipstick and feels very comfortable on the skin. It adds like a shine to the skin but not to much colour. It really is a 'Nude' shade. 

Here is the foundation, busher, eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner and powder applied to my face. 

Thank you Catrice for sending me these products. Great everyday makeup for affordable prices.
You can get Catrice cosmetics in  Pennys and in Inish Pharmacy. Online and Instore.
