Rave Review: Catrice 12h Matt Mouse Make Up in 010 soft ivory!

Moussey and matte! Mouse foundations is something I've always been keen on trying out but very rarely do as I'm quite set and happy with liquid and powder foundations. However there was a sale some time ago on Catrice products and couldn't pass up the chance to try their mousse foundation.

Considering Singapore's terribly hot and humid weather, it's a must to have a long wearing base if you're going to consider wearing one at all. Luckily this mouse foundation nicely lived up to what I thought it would be like.

Packaging & Product!

As this product is in a glass jar, although it's functional, it's not great for travel as well as for hygiene reasons if you are dipping your fingers into the product. However as a whole, the packaging is simple but with enough details with the labeling that it meets all basic expectations. Nothing fancy or cute.

Straight to the product, unfortunately there are only four shades available, all of which I'd considered as 'light' skin tone shades. The shade is picked is ideal for those NC15-20 as this light shade has a neutral/beige tone. 

The texture of this mousse base is extremely soft and blendable and it provides a very soft focus looking finish which looks great by itself. Pigmentation wise it has medium coverage and the formula feels fairly light on the skin which is great considering the discomfort of a thick foundation in humid weather.

Overall, the wear of this foundation is really quite excellent, holding up to the humidity and heat after being set with a layer of powder. It doesn't cake or settle into creases either and therefore is a very comfortable option of a mousse foundation in hot weather.

Recommend: Yes! For those who are interested in trying a mousse foundation this is definitely worth trying if you can find a match. The texture is super comfortable and the coverage remains on the face very nicely through a whole day.

Repurchase: No, as I have many many bases to finish up at the moment! I would definitely recommend this for my friends looking for a mousse foundation.

Bottom line: This foundation is really a great one that works very well even in Singapore's hot and humid weather! Surprisingly comfortable and not heavy at all, this is a great base from Catrice!
