My First Catrice Product

Last weekend my mum went on a trip to Sligo, leaving me to look after my little sister. All I asked in return was some Catrice and Essence goodies, which aren't available up north. I had asked for some nail polishes, but she also got this powder compact for me.

As far as I can tell, this is meant to be used as an 'all over' face powder, however, it is too dark for me! Were I choosing it for myself I'd have went for the lightest possible shade, but my mum is blessed with slightly swarthier skin than I and just bought me the same one that she was getting for herself!

Do not fear, though. On my pale complexion, it is a great bronzer! It is matte and very natural. Slight fallout, as you can see in the above photo, but blends really easily and I think it is perfect for contouring. Perhaps when I have tan on it will be more appropriate for using on more of my face.

Has anyone else tried any of Catrice's powders? Any recommendations? So far I really like this one!

Wow this is great! I thought it would be too dark but on the photo of your face it looks great! xxxx

Catrice powders are great, as well as a lot of other stuff they sell!
Products I can recommend are:
- nail polishes (LOVE!)
- eye shadows
- eyebrow set
- face powders
- the lip appeal lip glosses
From what I've heard, the gel eyeliners are also great, but I haven't tried them yet.

Catrice is a german brand therefore it's easy to find here in Germany. If you want more products, maybe try ebay?

Love, Nathalie x
