The Perfector Poreless Blur Primer
Selfie Ready. Instant soft focus effect for a smooth, visibly pore-free complexion. The light mousse primer prepares the skin for the application of foundation and makes it last longer.

The Mattifier Oil-Control Primer
The ideal preparation for shine-free looks. The Pore Refining And Anti-Shine Base minimizes unwanted shine and visibly refines your pores. The ultra-light formula also improves the durability of make-up. A true beauty perfectionist.
As far as mattifying primers go, Catrice’s Blur version is more effective than this, while this one feels more like a hydrating base on my dry skin. It don’t feel as much silicones in this one, but it’s not like a proper nourishing moisturiser and it still creates a good, smooth base. My skin isn’t oily at all, in fact I tested its mattifying ability by using an oily skin care product before and this did the job ok, but like I said, the Blur primer has a better dry-to-the-touch, velvety matte feel to it. Oil Control primer has no noticeable scent.
Glow Lovely Oil-Infused Highlighter
010 Glowing Peony
PRO Slim Eyeshadow Palette
Hint of Mint
“Pro-like” looks are guaranteed with the CATRICE Pro Eyeshadow Palette in premium paper packaging. The high-quality palette convinces with 14 highly-pigmented eyeshadows. The shades are ideally colour-coordinated and you can create various styles thanks to the metallic, shimmering and matte finishes
First impressions of this one were terrible. Catrice has a tendency to the same type of eyeshadows, which I’m so bored of and I’m just waiting for them to make the step forward. The shimmers are typically for Catrice tightly pressed and at first the brush did not pick up anything. But then I swatched it for the pictures, broke through the top layer and it got considerably better. Mattes are traditional nice – good level of pigmentation, smooth, easy to pick with any type of brush and build up on the eyes. The only complaints I have is that they take longer to blend than Colourpop’s. There’s a good collection of neutral brown-taupe-ish shades for defining the eye and for this alone this is a decent palette on a budget to have if you have no such shades yet in the collection. Matte pale mint green shade is the interesting shade in this palette and it’s actually very decent. Still for a great intensity a white base is needed, something like Nyx’s Milk pencil. Shimmers, like I said before, are that creamy, tightly pressed texture that isn’t easy to pick up with a brush. I can only do it with Mac’s 239 or an eyeliner brush, but it’s overall better to use fingers. The copper-gold Charm in particular is disappointing, neither is Dazzling blowing me away with its quality, while Frost, Spectacle and Lagoon are easier to work with. Snazzy isn’t a true shimmer, it’s more of a satin shade with some shimmer and it’s not as impressive as the other two dark brown shades in the palette in terms of pigmentation. There is fall down while applying these and during the day the shimmer migrates down the cheeks. Staying power is ok, but I’ve noticed some creasing, which considering few eyeshadows crease on my non-oily eyelids, might mean they don’t perform well without a base on oily eyelids.
Maxx it Volume Mascara
The MAX IT Volume & Length Mascara provides maximum volume and extraordinary length thanks to an innovative combination of the brush and texture. The special brush has both long and short, soft bristles that reach every single lash. At the same time, the Instant Volume texture is enriched with cellulose fibres that create a lash-lengthening effect. In addition, the formula nourishes the lashes with shea butter.
This has a major pet peeve for me – it’s kind of oily or never really dries, so it consistently makes my glasses dirty. It’s insufferable to wear. However, since almost none of you experience the problem of their lashes touching glasses, this is entirely irrelevant to you and all you need to know is that the effect of it is actually nice. It’s one of those Catrice mascaras that can create big, voluminous and longer lashes quickly. It’s a formula for those who want it all and don’t hold back when applying a mascara, expecting a bold look. It has a big silicone brush that defines and deposits a good amount of product, while the formula itself is not messy. It has no curl holding ability, but it’s not heavy on the lashes. Despite that smudging on the glasses, this one didn’t smudge around my eyes, but there is some fall down.
On Point Brow Liner
020 Medium Brown
The brush of the Brow Definer Brush Pen Longlasting has a very fine and a flat, broad side made of soft synthetic bristles. This makes it easy and extremely accurate to fill in the brows and style them into your personal favourite shape.
Wild Hibiscus Glow Lip Balm
010 Hawaiian Blossom Glow
The Wild Hibiscus Glow Lip Balm ensures soft lips and gives them a natural and radiant finish. The formula nourishes with cranberry and hibiscus oil, the texture of the lip balm reacts to the individual pH value of the lips and gives them a slight tint.
Drunk’n Diamonds Plumping Lip Balm
010 Guilty Treasure
The Drunk’n Diamonds Plumping Lip Balm leaves the lips looking soft and nourished, has a plumping effect and adds a hint of colour with a natural, radiant finish and a glitter effect. The caring, hydrating texture is enriched with vitamin E, mango butter and Volulip™ by Sederma and is coated with sparkling diamond-like glitter particles.
This look gorgeous in the packaging, but don’t let the glittery casing deceive you. It’s clear with one coat and if you build it up, it’s kind of like a restraint version of those Pearly Shine Labello’s (Nivea) lip balm we wore in school a while ago and was our first “lipstick”. It has frost, but it’s not that obviously frosty. As a lip balm it’s basic, so neither super nourishing, but it also doesn’t just disappear from the lips in minutes. This has a watermelon scent. Two more shades exist.
Better than Fake Lips Volume Gloss
010 Maximum Glow & 040 Volumising Rose
Fuller looking lips with a glossy finish are not a problem for the Better Than Fake Lips Volume Gloss! The silky soft lipgloss texture with medium coverage has a plumping effect and nourishes the lips with a butter complex, a vegan collagen replacement and Volulip™ by Sederma. The lipgloss feels pleasant on the lips and isn’t sticky.
Volumizing Extreme Lip Booster
040 Trick or Treat
The Volumizing Extreme Lipgloss visibly creates extra voluminous, plumped up lips and gives them a cooling, tingling, sour feeling thanks to yuzu extract, lime oil and menthol. The glitter particles in the translucent gloss create a shimmering finish with maximum shine.
Nail Repair Nail Building Base Coat
The Nail Repair Nail Building Base Coat unites a base coat and a nail treatment in one product. The base coat strengthens the nails, makes them look healthier and ensures longer natural nail growth. According to an external study, the base coat leads to 84% harder, stronger and more resilient nails and 86% less brittle as well as better looking nails. (* Self-assessment of 50 women who applied the polish on their natural nails twice a week for 3 weeks.) After applying the Nail Repair Nail Building Base Coat, you can apply a colour nail polish on top. The base coat gives the colour polish a smoother finish that lasts longer. At the same time, the nails are nourished and strengthened.
A clear nail polish base coat or stand-alone nail polish that Catrice say it contains ingredients that make nail stronger. My nails are already strong, so I won’t be able to test this for its efficiency. As a base coat it’s pretty standard at application. It dried fast and made a nice base for a coloured nail polish. However, the combination of this + coloured nail polish I know lasts well + Maxi Top Coat was unbelievably short-lived. My nail polish was peeling in chunks and I highly suspect it was this base because it behaved almost like a peel-off nail polish. So I wouldn’t wear this under coloured nail polishes, but as a stand-alone clear polish for nail repair and reapply it often.
Maxi Stay Gel Top Coat
The Maxi Stay Gel Top Coat extends the durability of your Catrice nail styling for up to 10 days.* The transparent top coat provides a high gel finish as well as a plumping effect, protects the nails and makes them extremely resilient. (*Self-assessment of 50 women, tested in combination with a classic red shade of the CATRICE ICONAILS Gel Lacquer.) For a super long-lasting look, apply a base coat before the colour polish and then a top coat. With the Maxi Stay Gel Top Coat, every nail art is sure to last a long time.
Have a great day!
