I adore high-end makeup brands, but i ADORE a good budget brand more.
Many moons ago when I worked in Arnotts Jewellery department I often went into the local Penneys. It was about the time they brought in their makeup section, it had Wet n Wild, Essence and Catrice. I like the other brands, but was always more fond of Catrice! The first thing I ever bought was a nail varnish, called Jonny says Tre chic (or something like that) and people went mad for it.
As you may know one of my ride or die products is the Catrice camouflage cream, but I also love their primers and powders!! I’ll leave some links here to some of the other blog posts I’ve done on the brand:
I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but no shops here in Jersey actually sell Catrice, so when I go home I try to stock up as much as possible. I’ve had a good look through their website and found some products I think will work well for me and add to my collection!
Disclaimer: I’ve just googled these products and used some images from there!!
First up is the liquid camouflage concealer. This was of course going to be on the list, I am all about the camouflage cream so I’m keen to try this! Its always out of stock when I go home I’ve heard great things though and I feel like this will be another ride of die product for me! Also the fact that its waterproof sounds AMAZING!!!
Next up is one that as an acne sufferer I feel like I need in my life, the camouflage cream anti red. If it’s anything like the original I’ll be stocking up every time I head home. I’ve used the anti redness primer and loved it so I think I can safely assume this will be another firm favourite!!
Currently I can’t get enough highlight! I have no idea what I’m doing with it mind you, but I Love the healthy glow it can give. Or the ability to be seen from space ha ha. I’ve never used any Catrice highlight as far as I can remember, but I tend to really like their other powder products so something tells me I’m going to like them. Once I saw High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder I knew I had to try it! Mmmm I can’t wait to get my hands on this beauty.
Contouring is a must for me nowadays, once I started I couldn’t stop. I’ve found some great stuff out there, but as of yet not my ride or die! I like this type of kit. I know I have a highlight above, but when they come in this type of kit the highlight tends to be a bit more wearable. They are perfect to pop in your makeup bag and top up or add on for a night out if needed. I’m liking the shade option. I’m not sure the new shade is for me, but maybe if I get to go on the sun holiday I’ve been dreaming of we shall see. Ha! I’m really looking forward to trying this Prime and Fine Contouring Palette.
Last but not least is something that I really want to try just for fun!! I love me a winged liner and I thought these metallic ones would be great for nights out of festival season! I’ve never used Cartice liner so I’m not sure if I’ll like them, but they just look so cool so I had to add them to the list!
Have you tried any of them? What do you think? Is it worth it is it not???
