Austria haul march 2011: Catrice, Manhattan by Parokeets

Once again I had some buissnes in neighbouring Austria and once again I had (took ) some time for shopping. This time I targetted new Catrice products and I got just in time to see full Manhattan Freaky Friday stand. One heap of lipsticks is mine and one Goga’s.

Catrice - Absolute Eye Colour

ArtDeco - Ceramic Nail Lacquer: 120, 123, 125

I bought these a while back in Germany. Lovely colors! 120 is a pretty army green shade. I love shades like this. A little comparison photo. IsaDora – In The Army is close but note a dupe. 123 is a dark blue creme. It’s a bit dusty. It’s dark but not too dark. Very pretty. 125 is a light blue ...
