CATRICE Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

Hello Summer! Ever since CATRICE entered the local Singapore beauty scene several years ago I've been a big fan of their large range of colorful, diverse and affordable products. Back in 2013 I hauled my first batch of products from them (see here) and it's been love since. Today I'm excited to be sharing products from CATRICE cosmetics new Spring/Summer 2017 collection!

Continue below to check out the new collection!

The 24H Made to Stay Make Up $12.50 SGD is a liquid foundation that comes in four shades with a matte finish that has high coverage and the ability to be very long lasting. Although most of us are unlikely to wear foundation for 24 hours, we definitely can use a heat and humidity proof base!

Here I've got the shade 010 Nude Beige which is a perfect match for my NC 20 complexion! It's a warm to neutral light yellow shade which is very ideal for many light skinned asian complexions. I found that the formula was easy to work with, has high coverage and has a matte finish that was very comfortable to wear out.

There are four eyeshadow palettes in the collection, retailing at $9.50 SGD each with nine shadows including one highlight and a matte contouring shade. All four palettes have shades that are very wearable and great for everyday use.

Here I've got the 010 Precious Copper palette which is a selection of shimmery shadows that mostly are of a warm bronze undertone. The shades are fairly pigmented on their own, with a base and apply evenly and blend easily. This palette gets two thumbs up from me for those keen on warm tone everyday neutral shades with a hint of fine shimmer!

The Light and Shadow Contouring Blush $6.90 SGD come in three universally flattering shades that all come with a main blush shade and a highlight shade. All the blushes have a velvety matte texture with the corresponding highlight shade having slight shimmer.

This pretty duo is 030 Rose Propose and those who have followed me and my love for blushes will know I'm a big fan of rose tones blushes as they really suit all occasions and skin tones! 

This blush has a medium pigmentation that gives the skin a very natural flushed look, combined strategically with a touch of the highlight and the cheeks definitely look sculpted without any contour.

For this collection there are eight eyeliners, the 18H Colour & Contour Eye Pencil at $3.90 SGD. Asides from the standard, black, dark brown, grey and highlight shades there are pops of color with a blue, green and copper option!

The Slim'matic Ultra Precise Brow Pencil Waterproof $5.50 SGD comes in three shades all of which are very natural looking with a neutral to cool undertone. The pencil is very skinny in order to draw in the brows in natural hairlike way.

The eyeliner in the black shade 010 Me, My Black and I, is a nice solid black shade that is slightly creamy and definitely smudge proof even on the upper lid. Should all the other shades be similar, these would be super handy in the summer. A slick of color with one of the other shades is also a simple way to add color during hot weather without fuss!

The brow pencil in 010 Light is a neutral light brown shade which actually works nicely with my dark hair although I would normally go for the medium or dark shade. I like how it's super easy to draw such natural looking brows although the fine point means the product will be used up more quickly.

The Liquid Luminizer Strobing Pen $6.90 SGD comes in two shades, a pink and a champagne! In a super portable and easy to use twist up pen with a brush tip, it could not get any easier to keep highlighted on the go!

As someone who religiously uses powder products for the most part, this liquid highlighter was super easy to apply and dried quickly to a natural looking golden gleam on my skin. 

I applied this to my high points on the cheeks, down my nose, the cupid's bow and a touch on my chin. Really enjoyed how it looked throughout the day and I can see this being a great highlight option for many who aren't normally highlighter users like myself.

The Lip Cushion $8.90 SGD is a creamy gloss with avocado oil that comes in a twist up pen with a sponge applicator. There are six gorgeous easy to wear shades from a mauve, corals and berry tones. 

For a quick way to make a lipstick matte, the Instant Lipstick Mattifier $7.90 SGD is a light textured gel that helps to transform a lipstick into a velvety matt finish that also extends the wear time of a lipstick!

For those more comfortable with a lipstick option, the Ombré Two Tone Lipstick $9.50 SGD comes in six shades with a soft texture that contains argan oil. The shades are all natural pink, berry and reddish tones perfect for a bright yet natural lip look.

I've got the shade 020 Better Make a Mauve which is a super wearable mauve coral tone. The formula is glossy, creamy, non-sticky and does not feather around the lips which is great given the humid hot weather right now.

The Ombré Two Tone Lipstick in 050 Please Tell Rosy is a lipstick with two shades. Mixed together, it's a pretty cool tone rose pink that's made of a medium rose pink and a deeper pink. It's a light weight product that isn't too creamy and feels barley there on the lips.

The Rock Couture Extreme Volume Mascara 24H $7.50 SGD comes in a black shade and a waterproof option. The formula and brush is meant to help with volume, curl and length that's meant to last up to 24H (should that be needed!). The wand is covered with very fine, short and slightly soft plastic bristles which reminds me of the popular Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara.

The Glam & Doll Sculpt & Volume Mascara $7.50 SGD is meant to amp up definition and volume while providing a curl. The bristles on this mascara are also plastic but are harder and have a convex shape which means the narrower end is useful for getting into the inner and outer corners of the eyes.

Both mascaras were very easy to use and definitely gave my lashes lots of definition, some length and some volume which makes for a fuller more defined lash look!

I did find however that the Glam & Doll Sculpt & Volume Mascara smudged easily when used on the bottom lashes due to the humidity so if you are indoors in air conditioning it should be fine but not if you will be exposed to the humidity.

Overall, the collection from CATRICE for Spring/Summer is full of wearable summery shades with textures and finishes that work well in the hot weather. I highly recommend checking out the foundation if you can find a match, the eyeshadow palette, luminizing pen, blush and lip cushion!
