Rave review: Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 010 Rose & Woody!

My perfect nude lip crayon! After having such great success with my first Catrice lip balm crayon, which was sent to me as part of a swap I decided to go ahead and get another color now that these are being sold in Singapore! I was so surprised by how this stayed even and didn't dry up my lips hence as a dry and sensitive lip girl I had the confidence to go ahead and get another shade! Check out my review of the shade (Don't Think Just Pink here!)

Continue below for my review!

Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 010 Rose & Woody!
Packaging & Product!

Simple and straightforward, these lip crayons are a standard size, similar or same to Revlon's if I'm not wrong. I really like how the tube color match the product and these are twist up so there's no need for sharpening a giant crayon! There's nothing special about the packaging but I'm not let down by anything either! 

The product itself is exactly like the pink shade I already own, Don't Think Just Pink. The texture is a light slightly waxy, very balmy feel. This product feels thin on the lights, makes your lips feel very soft and this stays moist for at least two hours without eating/heavy drinking. This shade Rose & Woody is a lovely slightly rose tinted light terracotta brown which was exactly what I was looking for. As someone with very rose colored lips, many browns turn up pink on me and this surprisingly is pigmented enough that my lips natural color doesn't show through!

For me, this is a perfect soft brown nude and because of my dry lips I'm happy with this light formula, although it doesn't last for more than 2 hours and you'd need to reapply but I have no issue with doing so. 

Swatch of Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 010 Rose & Woody!

My natural lip color. They are naturally very rosy and very often I get mistaken for wearing lip product! Getting a brown nude that shows up brown can be a bit tricky.
Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 010 Rose & Woody! Surprisingly it looks exactly the same on the lips! So happy!
Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm in 010 Rose & Woody! I've finally found my perfect brown lip balm crayon!

Paid: $9.90 SGD or about $7.80 USD

(This is so affordable considering the same product from revlon is double the price here at the drugstore!)

Recommend: Yes! If you're in need of an affordable, pigmented and very comfortable lip product for everyday use do check these out! There's a nice range of shades!

Repurchase: Maybe, I'm very likely to see if there is one more shade I want because I would like to buy one from revlon as I haven't tried any from their lacquer and matte range yet!

Bottom line: A very lovely colored lip balm crayon product, this is pigmented enough to mask my natural lip color and it stays for a few good hours before drying out and fading slightly. I really enjoy this formula, it doesn't aggravate my dry peely lips!

  1. this color is so pretty on you Sharlynn! But of course, since your natural lip color is solo rosy, I wish mine was like that too! xD
    I have 3 of these lip crayons from Catrice and they are really good esp for the price, compare to the 'original' clinique chubby stick at 17€ each ^^
    I don't have this color yet though, I might want to give this a check next time..

  2. It looks great on you! It's like the perfect amount of moisture and shine, and just enough pigmentation. I haven't seen Catrice products around Canada, but hopefully while I'm in Asia I'll spot some. I'd love to pick up this lip crayon for sure.

  3. Sharlynn, you've got such sexy lips! Hahaha! I've always adored natural lipstick shades. Can't believe your parents are in their 28yrs of marriage. You can be my daughter! Feeling so old now..........

    Sorry, been so busy haven't had time to come by & I'll be flying off again next week. xoxo

  4. Wow, I didn't know Catrice is being sold outside Europe as well! I really like their products, too. I have an eyeshadow palette and I don't use any other eyeshadow since I have it :D

  5. This shade looks so gorgeous. It's like the perfect every day nude.
