Misc. DVD, Essie amp Catrice Haul

My husband was kind enough to get me out of the house yesterday (Ive been having foot problems and have been stuck at home for the past two weeks) and I was able to do a little shopping. First we stopped off at Media Markt (similar to Best Buy) and I finally got my hands on Breaking Dawn! I wasnt able to see it when it was originally released in theaters so Im quite looking forward to watching it at long last. I just hope that after all this time that I am not disappointed.

Next we headed to DM (one of our local drugstore chains). I had originally just planned on picking up another Essie Spring polish but I ended up with a few other things as well. Last time I was in DM when I purchased Navigate Her I saw Orange, Its Obvious and it peeked my interest so with my husbands urging, he always likes when I pick bright polish, I picked one up. Since the new Catrice display was put in I have been eyeing a few things. So after checking out some swatches over the past few days I decided to try out Catrices Ultimate Color Lipstick. Well to be honest I have just very recently started to wear a little makeup and I typically just go with some lip balm on my lips. I thought it might be nice to try to find a nice subtle nude lipstick. After looking at many many swatches on the net I decided to pick up 190 The Nuder The Better and 010 Be Natural. On a side note, these lipsticks smell AH-MAZING! They have a subtle sweet cotton candy scent, its by no means over powering though. However once I was in the store I noticed they had the display for the new limited edition Revoltaire collection out. This collection includes two different rather nice looking eyeshadow quads, a powder blush, a lip brush, five nail polishes and three matte lipsticks. The packaging on this collection is really cool by the way, especially the eyeshadow quad compacts. I did swatch two of the lipsticks on my hand, 02 Nude Alarm & 03 Bloody Red. Well just as I thought, Bloody Red was a bit bold for me, nor did I think it suited my skin tone. However, Nude Alarm looked really nice so I decided to go ahead and pick it up as well. I think the lipsticks retail for about 3.95 each. I used The Nuder The Better and I have Nude Alarm on right now and so far so good. I will of course do a more extensive review of the lipsticks as well as the Essie polish once I put them to further use. I am thinking that Catrice will end up being one of my go to brands. I find their packaging is of a higher quality than most drugstore brands. For instance, the lipsticks I purchased all feel pretty hefty and solid (I dont see the lids getting loose or cracking in the future) and they just look nice. I feel you get a good amount of product and I have been very happy if not impressed by the Catrice products Ive tried thus far.

Has anyone else tried Catrice products? If so, what are you opinions?
