Catrice Blush Box

Blush has to be my favorite makeup products apart from eyeshadow. I love a good blush. And if they are natural, then it is just an added bonus. Catrice has released a whole range of matt blushes for fall/ winter 2018. They are called the Blush Box and I am reviewing one of them for…

Catrice Blush Artist face palette

I love how the drugstore brands are now also coming out with more shaping and contouring palettes. Catrice’s take on it comes in multiple rendition. I already reviewed their contouring palette and today I’ll be reviewing another new product to their spring/ summer 2016 line: the Blush Artist palette. Here’s to hoping Catrice doesn’t discontinue…

Catrice Glowing Blush Box

When one of your favorite drugstore brands does some new blushes, then you need to try them. Catrice released a new blush formula for their fall/ winter 2019 collection and I already tried the peach shade called Dolce Vita over the summer time. That was a success, so now that it is fall time, I…

Catrice Luminice Highlight & Blush palette

Today’s review is a blush & highlighter palette by Catrice. If you know me, then you know that face palettes aren’t really my forte. Many brands put them out and I own quite a few, but I never really end up wearing them much. Still, whenever Catrice comes out with new products I want to…

Catrice Glowing Blush Box

Catrice has come out with some new blushes and that is good news because generally speaking Catrice blushes are really good quality. They have released many renditions in the past years since they update their line every 6 months. Some of my favorites? The long since discontinued Illuminating Blushes. By now, Catrice has re-released similar…

Catrice Strobing blush

You know I love a berry blush for the fall. So when Catrice released their new Strobing blushes as part of their Fall/ Winter 2017 update, I knew that this berry number would be right up my alley. Of course the formula was a new one, so I decided to give it a whirl. I…

Catrice Strobe to Glow Highlighter & Matt to Cheek Blush stick

Cream blush & highlight is not exactly the first product I reach for in my day to day makeup routine. However, when Catrice released some very affordable options, I wanted to give it a go. Cream and liquid highlight especially have been making its way more and more into my makeup collection this past year,…

Catrice Light & Shadow Contouring Blush

Peachy blush tones for spring are some of my favorites. Where I wear little to no peach blushes in the winter time and opt for dusty pinks instead, I bust out the peach blush in full throttle every year come spring time. Whether I opt for Milani Luminoso, MAC’s Fresh Honey, or my Kiko Apricot…

New in: Catrice eye shadow, blush & eyeliner

My favorite drugstore brand? Catrice for sure. Despite the fact that they change up their line every 6 months, I always seem to discover new things that I have not yet tried. And at the affordable prices Catrice comes in, it doesn’t break the bank to do so. I was at the store last week…

Full Face of Catrice

My monthly full face of… makeup look this month is devoted to Catrice. I use all of my all time favorites, but I also throw in some new limited edition eyeshadow palettes. That’s right! I got my hands on the new Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck limited edition products.

Catrice Spring/ Summer 2020

Yay! It is finally here! The long-awaited Catrice Spring/ Summer 2020 update is now in stores and I picked up some products again to try. This is by now a solid tradition on my blog and Youtube channel. In case you are not aware, Catrice updates their makeup line every 6 months. They take out…

Catrice & Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 Collection Update

It is time for an update. An update on the Catrice and Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 collection. I tried both of these when they came out over the summer, but that was of course just a first impression. By now I have tried everything a bit more and while full reviews may be pending, I…

Catrice Fall/ Winter 2019

It’s the first of August which means it is time to start thinking about fall/ winter. Well, if you’re Catrice that is, because Catrice just launched their new Fall/ Winter 2019 collection. And you know what that means! Yep, I have gotten myself a bunch of new products to try and as per usual, I…

Catrice Romantic Gardens Face Palette

Essence and Catrice have come out with some seemingly great face palettes for their new spring/ summer 2019 collections. I already reviewed the Essence Hey Cheeks face palette and loved that one. The Catrice palette has a very similar setup to the Essence palette: there are 5 cheek powders. The layout is of course different,…

Catrice Triangle Artist brushes

In one of their most recent product line change overs Catrice launched some new brushes: the Triangle Artist brush collection. It features two face brushes and two eyeshadow brushes. And I am always in for trying some affordable brushes and when Catrice makes them, you know they will not break the bank. Let’s see how…

Urban Decay blush Video

For all my love of all things Urban Decay and I hadn’t yet tried any of their blushes. Not a product many people rave about, but Urban Decay has a pretty strong line. After Catrice it is definitely one of my makeup brands and last summer I was just baffled that I had yet to…

Catrice Shape in A Box contour palette

The contouring trend is long over, but Catrice still decided to launch a new contouring palette. They did one that is excellent, which I reviewed a long time ago, but sadly that was discontinued. So now they have decided to bring it back, but rather than a shimmery highlight and a contour shade, the reincarnation…

GRWM: Full face of Catrice

Over the years I have tried so many Catrice products. And I never did a post or a video where I create a makeup look in which I have used Catrice products exclusively. So it was about time, because I love so many of their products. In a way, today’s video is simply me having…

Catrice & Essence haul update

In July & September I tried some new Essence & Catrice products in two different first impression videos. I always do these when these two affordable brands change up their makeup lines for the new season, which happens twice a year. So far I have gotten around to reviewing a few of the items I…

Catrice Fall/ Winter 2018

It’s time again for a new makeup collection release! I had gauged that Catrice would have to launch their new products for the upcoming fall/ winter season soon. Their Instagram was already showing sneak peeks and then I saw the products popping up in stores. I of course couldn’t resist to get some new products…

Catrice Re-touch colour correcting concealer

I am not going to lie: I am not a massive fan of colour correctors. They just seem like an extra step that doesn’t do anything a regular concealer can’t do either. However, I have been big on using my Bobbi Brown corrector, but that is of course quite expensive. Since that is running low,…

Catrice Galaxy in a Box highlighter palette

When I spotted that Catrice would be releasing a highlighter palette, I was curious. I am not a huge fan of highlighter palettes. Face palettes that include more versatility I can get down with, but a palette just with highlighters is not necessarily my cup of tea. But this promised a holographic glowing effect: the…

Catrice Dazzle Bomb Limited Edition

It had been a while since I was last intrigued by a Catrice limited edition collection. Most of them were a bit meh and it hasn’t been since last summer that I found some products I liked in their seasonal limited edition collections. But 2018 is off to a good start with their new Dazzle…

Essence Metal Chrome blush

Shimmer and shine is the IT makeup aspect of the season. Be it in a lip color (shimmery lip gloss is back in vogue people!), an eyeshadow or in a blush: if it’s got a metallic shine it is all the rage right now. And I like a good deal of shine. In an eyeshadow,…

Make Up Revolution Blush

Affordable makeup is a great thing to try and if there is one brand that is known for their affordable products, it’s Make Up Revolution. They may be best known for their eyeshadow palettes. You know the ones? Those that blatantly dupe other, more expensive palettes? Or the ones that give you 32 shades? Yup,…

Favorite fall blush

I am someone who likes to change up their beauty products with the seasons and blush is definitely an item that I rotate around. Since I am always try new things, the selection keeps on changing and so the blushes I go for now are quite different from the ones I used to like. It’s…

Catrice Professional Makeup Techniques Face Palette

I think one of the most anticipated new releases by Catrice is their professional face palette. I know I got excited when I saw this in store. It is on the pricier side of Catrice products, but if it works well, then it might very well be the first drugstore face palette that actually works….

Catrice Soleil D’éte limited edition

Catrice just seems to keep on bringing out new products. Just last week they released their latest summer limited edition: Soleil D’Eté and I was very much intrigued by the products. It’s a very summery collection with lots of bronzes and metallics. I decided to pick up the liquid bronzer, the powder bronzer and the…

New Catrice Fall/ Winter 2017 makeup

Catrice did it again! Their bi-annual line change is rolling out in stores as we speak and I found tons of goodies that I wanted to share with you. As per usual, I decided to do this in video form. In this video, I will show you all the products I got, swatch each one…

Catrice Highlighter Merry Cherry Blossom

Catrice is the brand that just keeps on giving! While I wasn’t all that pleased with some of their newly released lipsticks, there is one product in the new line that has pleasantly surprised me. It’s their newest highlighting powder. If you like some KAPOW glow in your life, then keep on reading, because this…

New in: Catrice Spring/ Summer 2017

It seems Catrice rolls out their line update earlier and earlier, as I already spotted all of their new products at my local drugstore last Thursday. Their spring/ summer line change seems to be the biggest one every year and boy did they come up with some cool new products to try out. There are…

Catrice Deluxe Glow Highlighter trio

Catrice always has some great products to try out and when I spotted the latest highlighter palette I was instantly intrigued. Not only does it look quite luxurious for a budget brand, I am usually very pleased with how Catrice products perform for the price. Will this be another one of my drugstore gems? Catrice…

Brand bites | Catrice

If you love affordable make up like me, then you will be enjoying this installment of Brand Bites. Catrice is a super affordable, budget brand that is sold at my local drugstore. It is being sold in more and more countries lately and of all the budget brands it is my favorite. That’s also why…

6x perfect blush colors for pale skin

At this time of year, just before the weather takes a turn for the better is when I am at my palest. As with getting a tan, my level of paleness increases as winter progresses. Hence I am at my fairest when winter is pretty much over. And that is when I bring out my…

Catrice & Essence Spring/ Summer 2016

It’s February, which means that Catrice and Essence are once again overhauling their lines. I was at my drugstore last Tuesday and found a ton of the new Catrice items. From Essence I just found a few bits that I hadn’t yet tried as well as their new limited edition All That Greys. I decided…

Catrice Even Skin Tone Foundation

When Catrice releases a new foundation, I have to try it. Especially if it is a foundation that comes in some nice, light colors. I already showed this briefly in my Catrice/ Essence new products overview a few weeks ago, but when you start using a foundation every day and has become your favorite, it…

First impressions: new Catrice & Essence fall/ winter 2015

It’s that time of year again: Catrice and Essence have changed up their range again. Even though I thought at first that there wasn’t much that I would like, I have found a few bits that I thought were worth checking out. Since I want to have ample time before I fully review them, this post…

Catrice Velvet Finish foundation

When Catrice released this new foundation last October, I was curious for two reasons. The first reason is that it came in a seemingly very light shade. The second reason was the fact that I love their All Matt Plus foundation and was curious to try more. And I really thought it was time I…

Catrice Absolute Matt eyeshadow palette

Last week I showed you a massive drugstore make up shoplog. I asked what you’d like me to review first and many of you said the Catrice eyeshadow palette. And so here we are today with a review of this budget matte eyeshadow palette. Matte eyeshadows are hard to find in the drugstore and when…

Fall/ winter 2014 Catrice products

Catrice is doing it again: changing its make up line that is. Twice a year the German make up brand renews its line and updates older products. When I was in Germany last month, I found a display at the German drugstore with some of the new products featured in the upcoming change for fall/…

New In: Catrice & Essence make up

Every few months German budgetproof make up brands Essence & Catrice renew their lines to keep it fresh and up to date. So when I was in the store the other day and found the displays had just been restocked I checked it out and went home with some eyeshadow and a blush. Read on…

Make Up Collection: Blushes

I already showed you all of my lip products in a few separate posts, here, here and here. This time we’ll move up the face and it’s time for blushes. Here are the ones I have, I will indicate which ones are my favorites as we go along. ***Warning*** This post is picture heavy. I’m…

2019 Favorites // Cheek Products

It is time for another installment of my 2019 makeup favorites. I already showed you my favorite base and lip products and today we are doing cheek products. It may very well be my favorite category after eyeshadow palettes. That is why I am ranking my top 10 favorite cheek products for you. Curious to…

Shop My Stash | September 2019

It is the first Tuesday of September and that means it is time for a shop my stash. Because I am back to my usual Youtube content, I am featuring this month’s Shop My Stash again in video form. So click to watch what I was using last month, with some mini reviews including the…

Shop my stash | March 2018

It’s the beginning of the month and that means that I’m showing you the makeup I used in the previous month. I know most people do a shop my stash at the beginning of the month to show what makeup they hope to use. But I’m fickle in my makeup choices: I decide the night…

Starter kit make up

When I first got into make up I was well into my 20s and had a steady job that paid the bills. Nevertheless, I found through trial and error that there is a lot of good quality drugstore make up out there. So I started wondering what make up I would buy if I were…

Collective beauty & make up shoplog (Spring 2013)

Hold up. Stop. Before you think I purchased all of this in one go: nah-uh. This shoplog comprises every beauty and make up related item I purchased in the course of 2.5 months. You could call it a collective spring 2013 beauty shoplog if you’d like. So don’t go thinking that I went on a…
