Catrice – Absolute Eye Colour (swatches of 10 eyeshadows)

Catrice - Absolute Eye Colour

In case you weren’t aware, Catrice doesn’t offer only pretty nail polishes but also some great eyeshadows. ;) I went a bit nuts when I saw these in Germany and bought ten. My excuse was: “They aren’t very expensive.” They were 2,79€. I like the packaging very much. It’s simple and elegant. There’s 32 shades to choose from. Some eyeshadows ...

ArtDeco - Ceramic Nail Lacquer: 120, 123, 125

Review and swatches: Catrice – Glamourama

Swatch: Catrice - Glamourama: En Vogue, Drama, Baby!

Glamourama is a limited edition by Catrice. The collection as a whole didn’t impress me. It’s nice, but nothing special. I bought two eyeshadows and one nail polish. The eyeshadows are nice and well pigmented. I don’t have any complaints about them. The limited edition eyeshadows are bigger than the ones from the regular line, but the price in Germany ...

FOTD: Extremely daring hot pink

Products for the Hot Pink and Purple make up by Maestra

Well, pink really isn’t my color and I don’t know what happened to me a few days ago, when I created this particularly bold hot pink look. And what worries me the most is that I liked it.
