Product Regret #10

I’ll admit, I only bought this because it was marked down from MYR 16.90 to just MYR 9.90.

The product.

See the stray nylon strand, that was after I had snipped off a couple of others.

Pretty black and opaque

What I like about it:

Very black and opaque.

 

What I didn’t like:

Right from when I opened it there were several strands of the brush tip frayed; I had to snip it just to swatch.

The brush isn’t fine enough for a sharp winged liner.

It has a shiny finish and I HATE that.

Shiny finish, eugh....

Shiny finish, eugh….

It is sticky even when dried so even if you have slightly hooded eyelids like I do, your liner would transfer onto the eyelids.

It dries fast but stays sticky.

Speaking of transferring, it does even after it dries! That to me is the crappiest kind of liner ever!

I only but touched it after it dried and it transferred. You can actually see the patch missing.

First Impression, Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Metal Eyeshadow

Catrice Cosmetics is a fairly new makeup brand and one of those up and coming names in the beauty industry. Their prices are VERY affordable and their products are pretty good in quality. They even have makeup brushes! The brand was founded by the company Cosnova Beauty, based in Germany; they are the same company that founded Essence Cosmetics, another favourite makeup brand of mine. Essence is exclusive to Watsons and Catrice is exclusive to Guardian. What I have today is two eyeshadows from their Liquid Metal Eyeshadow collection. The interesting thing about this collection is the eyeshadows are named after rock songs! How cool is that???!!!

 

The product. Yes, I got two of them.

My thoughts:

They are single eyeshadows that comes in 9 different shades. It is metallic, shiny and has lots of micro glitter! It is also buttery and soft. They are highly pigmented! The swatches that you see are done with merely ONE swipe with little pressure on the product AND swiped with just ONE stroke on the back of my hand. They are available at Guardian and be sure to look out for promotions (I bought them at 30% off and it cost me MYR 15.30 per eyeshadow). That is all I can say for the product at the moment. I’ll test it out and definitely write a whole review on them! Meanwhile, go try some Catrice makeup, they even have eyeshadow palettes!!!
