Catrice Dewy-ful Lips Conditioning Lip Butter and Essence Colour Boost Mad About Matte Liquid Lipstick

Catrice Dewy-ful Lips Conditioning Lip Butter and Essence Colour Boost Mad About Matte Liquid Lipstick

These two are the new products from the Essence and Catrice autumn/winter revamp. I picked them out myself, I went with a lip butter and a matte lipstick. I have never been a fan of lip glosses or anything sticky on my lips but Mateja and Petra convinced me I need this product in my life (they both have a review on their blog). The adorable packaging also helped. Then, I wasn't sure if the matte lipstick from Essence is even new in their assortment or it's old but I just grabbed it. I did hear that Essence's matte lipsticks aren't really matte but I took my chances and bought it anyway.

Catrice Dewy-ful Lips Conditioning Lip Butter 040 Dew You Care?
Dewy-ful Lips Lip Butter comes in a tube packaging, that reminds me on Melted Lipsticks from Too Faced, but I actually prefer the design of these ones. The packaging contains 8ml of product and costs 4,39€The applicator is great, it's soft and easy to work with.

The formula is creamy and very comfortable to wear. It feels a little sticky but it doesn't bother me at all. On the lips, it feels like a glossy lip balm and it has a glossy finish. The pigmentation is great for a product like this, it gives some colour to the lips and it actually lasts a while, the finish does fade a bit, but the colour can stay for a couple of hours. The lip butter has a sweet vanilla scent.

My shade is number 040 and it's called Dew You Care?. It's a nude brown shade that is perfect for autumn. They only have four shades of these, one is a very light rose that is too light for me, the other two I still need to try, because I would love to have more in my collection. I miss some shades, like a purple-mauve shade that I just love to wear in this time of the year.

This one also comes in a tube, which contains 8ml and costs 2,99€. The packaging is in the colour of the lipstick shade (or close to the shade) and it's matte. The applicator is hourglass shaped, soft and again, easy to work with.

The formula is very thin and liquidy, two coats are enough to cover the lips. It's probably the most liquidy formula I have tried with liquid lipsticks, I'm used to mousey and creamy formulas from BourjoisL.O.V and The Body Shop. Writing this review I realised it's actually pretty similar to the Lip Powder from Catrice, which doesn't seem to exist anymore. The lipstick doesn't seem to bleed, but since it's a liquidy formula I would recommend using a lip liner with darker shades. It has a scent to it, I smell cookie dough, actually, the scent reminds me of the Trend it Up Ultra Matte LipstickI was very surprised when I realised this lipstick does actually dry to a matte finish and it only needs about a minute or less for that.  It feels lightweight on the lips but it does dry them out. If you have problems with dry lips I wouldn't recommend this lipstick, it doesn't emphasize dry patches but it does emphasize every single line on my lips. I can only use it if my lips are in great shape.

I like the shade, I have a shade 01 dusty romance. It's a browny nude, but not too brown, I would say it's a perfect nude for me. It gives a bit of colour but doesn't look too obvious on the lips. Almost like a my-lips-but-better shade. The lipstick comes in ten shades that you can choose from but I haven't really seen any that I would like besides this nude one.

I love the lip butter, it's quickly become one of my favourite and most worn products, it's conditioning, has a nice pigmentation and lasts for a while. Like I said, perfect for the cold time of the year. I'm not sure what to think about the matte lipstick, I like it, but I probably won't be able to wear it most of the colder months, because I get very dry lips.

Thank you for reading!

  1. 040 odtenek je še na moji wishlisti. Moram si ga enkrat kupiti, ker mi je formula res všeč in imam rada take rjavkaste odtenke. Zame še posebej uporabna formula za te dni, kot si tudi sama omenila. Imava iste probleme s suhimi ustnicami :D. Zadnje čase sploh ne morem nositi mat šmink, čeprav imam toliko enih lepih jesenskih odtenkov.

    Hvala za omembo <3

    1. Formula je super :D Zadnje čase res nosim samo še te vlažilne šminke, mat mi trenutno sploh ne ustrezajo :)

  2. Meni ena izmed ljubših izdelkov prenove. Sploh Catrice je tak mehak, kot en obarvan balzam in ga res rada nosim. Za Essence pa samo povem, da imam že tri odtenke.

  3. Zdaj so me pa res začele mikati te Essence mat šminke. Jih nisem imela niti namena kaj bližje pogledat, ampak zdaj ko vidim kako mat je swatch, bi pa morda preizkusila kakšen odtenek. Sicer to, da je tako redka formula ne zveni idealno, ampak od Sleek in še parih znamk so isto tako lahke.

    1. Tebi, ko nimaš težav s suhimi ustnicami, bi ti verjetno bile všeč :)
