New Spring Products from Catrice

New Spring Products from Catrice (California in a Box Blush and Bronzer Palette and HD Liquid Coverage Concealer 010 Light Beige)

Spring is just around the corner and Catrice came out with a lot of new spring/summer products again. I was lucky enough to get some of them to try. I actually got two products that I would probably check in the store and buy myself too. Both, especially the concealer, have caught my eye and I was very excited to test them.

The packaging of the concealer is small and slim, it contains only 2,5ml of product (for comparison, Essence Camouflage and Catrice Liquid Camouflage both contain 5ml) and it costs 3,79€.

There are only three shades available and the shades are supposed to be complementary to Catrice's HD Liquid Coverage Foundation. I got the lightest shade, called 010 Light Beige, which at first, I thought it would be too light for my skin tone, but now in winter, it seems to work fine but it will be too light for summer. Just now I actually noticed they added two more shades to their Liquid Camouflage concealer, so well done Catrice, finally some more shades to choose from.

The texture of the concealer is a bit thicker and quite easy to blend. It is the same as by the Liquid Camouflage. When I was taking photos for the swatches I noticed it started to oxidize on my hand, but I didn't notice it would oxidize on my face.

I use the applicator to apply the concealer, then I blend the concealer with my fingers, so can I get the most coverage. The applicator is very thin, firm and precise. You can easily target smaller imperfections. There isn't much product in the packaging, so you probably shouldn't use it for under the eyes (use the Liquid Camouflage since the formula is the same), but I did try it a couple of times just for fun. I noticed it settles into fine lines and I really didn't notice this by their Liquid Camouflage. Maybe it was just a coincidence or I just didn't notice this before by the LC, but still, weird. It has a medium or medium-full coverage and it can look dry and cakey if you apply too much.

I would say it's quite long lasting. If you don't set it with a powder, it quickly starts to disappear from my face. But with some setting, it can last the whole day, it just gets a bit dry looking.

I love my Liquid Camouflage concealer, so I really like this one too. It is perfect for small imperfections since it has such a small and precise applicator. If you have dry skin do consider it can look a bit dry sometimes, but other than that it's great.

There are four such palettes joining the spring/summer assortment, I had my eye on this one because it seemed like a great palette for my skin tone. The palette comes in what seems to be sturdy plastic packaging, still, if you drop it, it would probably break. It comes with two blushes, two bronzers and a highlighter. The price of the palette is 10,49€ and it contains 15g of product.

The blushes are both on a coral side. One is matte and the other one is described as pearly and I would agree with that. It has shimmer in it and looks healthy and glowy on the cheeks. The matte one seems very poorly pigmented if I swatch it with my fingers (I had to make an effort to get the swatch on the picture), but with the brush, I can quickly get too much of it on my cheeks. One thing that I did notice is, that I had to get through the top layer and now the pigmentation is better, but far from being great.

Bronzing powders are both matte, one is lighter and yellow toned, the other one a bit darker and with red undertone. Both are okay pigmented, the darker one a bit more than the lighter one. I feel people with very light skin won't like them, but for me, they are perfect.

The highlighter is a champagne gold shade and it's gorgeous. Well pigmented, the only product in the palette that doesn't seem as powdery, it's more on a smooth side. It does contain shimmer that could be more finely milled.

Apart from the highlighter, all of the products are quite powdery and dusty, but they seem to blend well on my skin, you just need to take a bit more time. The bronzers also don't look too orange or muddy. I would even say all of the products are long lasting, I can still see everything on my face at the end of the day, just a bit faded. Just the highlighter seems to disappear after a whole day of wear.

I have heard so many different opinions on this palette, my fellow blogger Mateja isn't really a fan of it. Another Slovenian blogger and Youtuber Maja said she really likes it (video in Slovene), and Julija likes it as well. The other day I actually saw the new Catrice stand in Müller and remembered to swatch the palette and there it's such a difference comparing to my one. I only swatched the blushes and they both felt quite soft to the touch, but more importantly, they were nicely pigmented. Like I said, the second blush in my palette is very poorly pigmented if I swatch it with my fingers, but in the store, it was a whole different story.

I love the palette, the shades are perfect for my skin tone. The bronzers work well for me, the blushes are nice, I can choose if I want a matte one, or I want to go for more glowy cheeks, and the highlighter is gorgeous. The highlighter actually reminds me on one of my favourites from a Cubanita TE from Essence, but that one is softer to the touch and the shimmer is more finely milled.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Kot sem že napisal v moji objavi me paletka ni pretirano navdušila, razen highlighter mi je ok. Mi je pa zanimivo to, da si opazila, da so testerji v trgovini boljše kvalitete, ker meni se je to zgodilo pa z njihovim senčilom. Čudno.

    Korektor mi je spodoben, ampak bi si želela malo boljšo obstojnost, pa tudi bi lahko bil še malenkost bolj prekriven glede na to, da je za prekrivanje mozoljev.

    1. Se spomnim, da si pohvalila njihova senčila in da kasneje kvaliteta tvojega ni bilo enaka. Ne vem kaj imajo to :/

      Meni se je zdel kar fajn prekriven, ampak je pa res, da nisem imela prav mozolja že res dolgo, tako da za to ne bi vedela kako se obnese. Mi je pa ta mini aplikator zelo všeč :D
