It’s finally here! The longawaited Catrice & Essence limited edition Royal Party/ Sister Love has arrived in stores and I lucked out and found an untouched display and was able to pick up all the palettes I wanted from this collection. This limited edition features 14 eye and face palettes of which I picked up 3: 1 by Catrice and 2 by Essence. What drew me in? Well everything about this collection: from the packaging, to the shade selection. The only question I still had: is the quality any good? So I decided to do a first impression video in which I test these out for the first time. Here we go!Read more
I cannot remember the last time I reviewed a Catrice or Essence limited edition collection: they just hadn’t really grabbed my attention. But then Catrice started teasing their summer 2019 Sun Glow limited edition and I knew I wanted to try it. The products are finally for sale in The Netherlands and I decided to try nearly the entire collection, save for the makeup brush.Read more
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 Bomb limited edition. Sadly, this was released just days before New Year’s Eve. I think this sparkly collection would have better suited a release before the holidays, not when they are almost over. Oh well, this a little bit of glitter can never do no wrong, so let’s have a closer look.

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 highlighter.

Dove grey. There is something about that color that attracts me. I’ve been eyeing up two different shades by Essie, but a) they are too similar and b) I already own this one. This polish was part of a recent limited edition collection by Catrice and I fell in love instantly. This is Catrice Pulse of Purism nail polish in the shade Pure Blues.

That Urban Decay is one of my favorite eyeshadow brands is no secret. So when I spotted the release of the After Dark palette I was intrigued. Released at the same time with the permanent Nocturnal Shadow Box, but that features many shades that have appeared in other Urban Decay palettes. Since I already own so many Urban Decay palettes, I figured After Dark would be more unique. Here are my thoughts.

For spring 2017 Essence did not only renew its standard line, but they also released a brand new limited edition. When I spotted it in store, I figured it would be nice to try some products out. My interest was piqued mostly by the nail effect pigments, which can transform your average polish into a (duo)chrome extravaganza. However, I of course cannot say no to a rainbow highlighter and a pretty eyeshadow palette either. This is the review.
