Yes, I know it is already December and these products were released two months ago! But if you read my blog you know what has been going down in my life lately. Hecticness.
Anyway, every few month the Cosmetix brands release new capsule items to the ranges. We have seen some incredible products leave but each and every new range has even better products than before. And the CATRICE October range is no exception.
This new range contains a huge array of amazing new products, so I am going to chat about my absolute faves in this post.
Prêt-à-Volume Smokey Mascara Velvet Black – The past range of CATRICE had a great mascara so I am really happy to note that the mascara in the CATRICE October update is just as nice. You have to wear it for, like, 20 hours before it starts to smudge and there is no flaking at all. The thick cone shaped brush gives off a slightly smudged effect (if you want it to) which allows you to create a subtle smokey look underneath your eyes. Available at R79,95.
Deluxe Glow Highlighter – This trio palette had girls on the internet going wild. Three shades in colours of rose, bronze and champagne to give your skin a Summery, highlightery and healthy shimmer. The palette itself is infused with fine shimmer particles that reflect light for theee ultimate glow. I would recommend you reapply this once during the day if you are planning on wearing it for hours… but overall the quality is great and really long lasting as far as drugstore purchases go.
Eye & Brow Contouring Palette – This is my favourite product of the entire collection. The palette contains three brow shades and one shimmery highlight. Personally, I think that only two of the brow shades are usable for your eyebrows. No-one using this palette for it’s shade would be able to use the lightest shade for anything except highlighting their browbone or inner eye. So basically it is a four piece palette with two brow shades, a shimmery highlight and a matte highlight. Even more of a bonus in my opinion! The shades are so perfectly suited to my skintone that this is my current favourite brow set.
The shade is called 010, BUT FIRST, COLD CHOCOLATE! How freakin’ cute? There is a second palette is slightly darker and also cutely named as 020, BUT FIRST HOT COFFEE. I die for those names. And lastly, the packaging on this is AMAZING. So sturdy and tough, I love it. Available for R79,95.
Prêt-à-Lumière Longlasting Eyeshadow – This is an annoying one for me but I have to post it anyway. There are 9 shades in this new stunning Lumiere range but the shade I have is a dark electric blue. I applied it a few times to test the wear and it really wears well. I won’t use this shade again but I will happily repurchase any of the other 8 shades. They apply well and really pack a punch, one swipe and it is non-patchy and highly pigmented. Also, the packaging of these is really unique to CATRICE and I kinda love it. Available at R69.95
Velvet Matt Lip Cream – It would take one seriously horrible lip cream for me to not love it. Because I love ’em. And this one can totally hold it’s own. The shade I have is 050 Brooklyn Pink-Ster and it is a full on dupe for Australis Velourlips Matt Lip Cream in Mal-I-Boo, which is like R280 and not available here. These feel super rich and luxurious on your lips and only need to be touched up every few hours. The only downfall is that there are only four shades! I cannot wait to see the range when it gets more shades in. Available at R61,95
Ultimate Colour Lip Colour – One of my favourite things about this brand is that the ranges always have a huge selection of colours. And the CATRICE October range is keeping up. The Ultimate Colour range has 14 new colours with almost every colour under the sun. I have Cool Brown! but I really have my eye on Red Said Black and Legend’Berry as my next purchases. The effect is shiny and sleek and keeps your lips nice and hydrated – perfect for our upcoming Summer months. Available at R69.95
And that is it for my faves from the CATRICE October range. Overall this really is my favourite update that CATRICE has ever released. I pretty much love each and every product… eeeek.
