Hi, everyone! How are you today? I wanted to write this post yesterday, but then the day just went past me and I decided to post it today. The Haloween manicure, I should post today, will be posted tomorrow. Lately I'm doing my makeup mostly with Essence and Catrice products, that I got on Essence&Catrice event. Because most of the products are from different limited editions, I decided to do a makeup with them and in the same post write a short review of each product. First I wasn't planning to review them, but then Tamara (Cherry Colors) said to me on Twitter, that Essence and Catrice know to release products from LE's in their regular assortment too, so I decided to write this type of post. I think some LE's are still available, so I hope it'll help some of you to decide, if you want to get something last minute or not.
Essence Be Loud Ap-ri(c)ot blush
Ok, the name is written a bit strangely, didn't even notice that before this post. But otherwise I really like this blush. I wanted to get it when this collection was available in stores, but I said to myself, you have way to much blushes and I left it in the store, but that didn't stop me now. And I'm glad that I got it, because I love it. The design of the blush is military and it has peach, orange and pink colors in it, but when you mix colors together, they give a coral look to the cheeks. I'm very satisfied with formula, because it's easy to blend and it's also nice pigmented. I already see, this will be one of my go to blushes for fall. The packaging is big, it contains 8,2 g of a blush.
Essence Metal Glam Gold Digger Highlighter Powder
I read few positive reviews about this highlighter, so I had to try it myself too. Before that I tried only one highlighter and that was a good excuse to get another one. It's a light golden shimmery highlighter, very good pigmented and easy to blend. And it looks amazing on cheeks. I'm very glad that I got it, I see myself using it a lot. The packaging contains 9 g, which is really a lot, I probably will never finish it. This collection is still available in stores, if I'm not mistake, so I suggest you to try it, if you're searching a good highlighter.
Catrice Matchpoint The Winning Cream longlasting eyeshadow base and highlighter
Another highlighter, this one is a liquidy one. It's darker than Essence one. I tried it as a highlighter on my cheeks and it looked nice, but I prefer Essence one. I also highlight my inner eye with it and it looks amazing. I haven't try it as an eyeshadow base yet, because I'm always using Essence I Love Stage, which works great for me. The packaging contains 4 ml.
Catrice Thrilling Me Softly Deep Black cat eyes eyeliner pen
I took this pen, because I've never try eyeliner pen before and I was wondering, if it'll be easier to do straight eye line with it. Well, it's easier to work with it as with liquid eyeliner, but the pigmentation disappointed me, because I really expected, that it'll be true black color (as the name says), but it's not. Maybe I'll use it as a base for my liquid eyeliner. I'll draw line with it and then go over it with liquid eyeliner. It contains 2,5 g. I just hope it won't dry out very quickly.
Catrice Thrilling Me Softly Fatal lip tint
I took 2 lip tint from this collection, but I decided to give one away in my upcoming giveaway. For me I kept lip tint in shade Fatal, which is a dark raspberry shade. I adore this product, I would wear it all the time. I'm very surprised, because it's a lip tint, but it doesn't dry my lips. And that's a good fact, because I don't like lip products, that dry lips. It's very good pigmented and because it's a darker color, you must be a bit careful with application, so that it'll look perfect (as you can see on photos of my makeup, I wasn't the most careful by application, but imperfections are more visible on photos than in person, where it looked okay). At the beginning, when you apply it, it looks very glossy, but after some time it's becomes less glossy. It leaves stain on lips and although it transfers on a glass, if you drink, or on service, if you eat, it leaves stain and it lasts few hours, which is really impressing. And the stain, it leaves, is even and it looks good on lips, which is also rare, because usually lip product start to disappearing in inner part of lips first. But there's one thing, that bothers me. This lip stain is very sticky. Even after some time, when it leaves stain, it feels sticky. The packaging contains 4 ml. This lip tint will also be one of my go to products this fall, because the color it's just perfect.
For the eyes I actually used Sleek Vintage Romance palette, so not all of the products I used, are from Essence&Catrice event. As a foundation I used Catrice All Matt Plus in a shade 020 Nude Beige, for which I though, that it'll match my skin, but it looks a bit too dark on me, so I'll have to mix it with something brighter. Otherwise I like this foundation, but full review will be posted separately.
A close up make up look. I used Catrice The Winning Cream highlighter in inner corner of my eye and under eyebrow, but it's not that visible, probably, because when I blend it, it looks very similar to my skin tone. And I want to know, what do you think about this mascara. It's Catrice Glamour Volume mascara, but I don't think, that it gave me much volume. It doesn't stick together lashes and it makes them longer, but I wish it would gave me more volume.
