I have just recently started experimenting with makeup after branching out from my nail polish addiction. lol Typically I tend to just go for some lip balm on my lips. However, I thought it might be nice to try a nice nude lipstick. I thought a subtle nude color would be best as I still am weary of anything too bold at the moment to be honest. So the search began. I would have loved to give the Lip Butters a try, but sadly theyre not available in Germany. A few weeks ago my local DM, one of the drugstore chains in Germany, put in a Catrice display FINALLY. Before I could only find their nail polishes here and there. Ive always read really good reviews about their products so I checked out their website to see what colors they had available and then looked for swatches of colors the colors that appealed to me. Initially I intended to pick up one color to start with but there were two swatches that I really liked so I figured Id get them both since Catrice products are incredibly affordable.
While in the store I decided to swatch a few colors in person to be sure. Many swatches later I ended up with the two colors I had intended to purchase anyhow. I decided on 010 Be Natural and 190 The Nuder The Better, both of these are part of Catrices Ultimate Color Lipstick line. There is also an Ultimate Shine line which I am not sure if my DM has in stock yet. I then noticed that the new Catrice Revoltaire Limited Edition collection had been put on display and had to check that out. This limited edition collection includes two smokey eyeshadow quads, three velvet matte lipsticks, a lip brush, a powder blush, and five nail polishes. So I thought I would check out the lipsticks. The colors available in the Revoltaire collection are 01 Color Bomb which is a really bright pink, 02 Nude Alarm which is a light peachy pink, and 03 Bloody Red which is a deep red. I didnt bother with Color Bomb but I did swatch Bloody Red but I felt as thought it was just a little too daring for my tastes. I also did a swatch of Nude Alarm and quite liked it so I decided to pick that one up as well.
I have worn all three lipsticks over the past few days and I really like them. The two Ultimate Color lipsticks are really nice and creamy and have a bit of shine to them. I especially love their scent which smells a bit like cotton candy but not in an overpowering way, its on the subtle side. The Revoltaire Matte lipstick is also surprisingly on the creamy side but as with matte shades it can go on a little chalky if your lips are already dry. So I have to be sure that my lips are nice and moisturized before I want to wear Nude Alarm. For some reason this lipstick doesnt have the same nice scent and is in fact scentless aside from the slight waxy crayon smell that it has. I feel that with Catrice lipsticks you get a really good amount of product and they retail for about 3.95 although I think the limited edition one was maybe one Euro more. The packaging is also really nice in my opinion, especially the Revoltaire line. The cases are solid and they click shut nicely. I have been really impressed with the Catrice products I have tried so far and I will definitely continue to purchase more of their products in the future.
