This is a post that should have happened ages ago – but I just wanted to hold onto the secret for just a tiny bit longer. I won my first lip smoothing polish from Catrice back in September, and I am sure you will all remember the many selfies of the bright pink lip! Since then, I braved yet another daring colour, that you would have never seen me sporting two years ago – RED!
There are so many reasons why I feel more comfortable coveting these bright colours with this range of lip stains. Catrice is a stand-out brand, to me, and you will find that I tend to wear their make-up a lot of the time. Their prices are fantastic and quality is remarkable! I recently went through a hard time finding a foundation and after receiving a press-release headed out, bought my shade in their new foundation and haven’t looked back since.
The lip polishes start off as a highly pigmented gloss, which fades throughout the day to become a stain. The colour that remains on your lips is not dull and worn, like the morning after the night before, instead it remains vibrant long after the 8 hours that they marketed it as. In actual fact, I have often found myself scrubbing it off, the following morning. I love that the finish is so vibrant! You can tone it down with a single layer, or build it up for luscious kissable lips that scream “SMOOCH ME!”
In true Catrice fashion, the packaging is classy, simple and easily fits in your clutch. I would highly recommend stocking up on a few to keep for those after-work drinks, or freshening up your look before a presentation. I have compared this lip stain to other brands whose prices are 10 times more, and the lasting power cannot compete!
A little FYI… There’s also a shade called ‘Megan Fuschia’ which I am dying to get my hands on (they haven’t had any stock in PE) but I shall get it some time soon because I love the shade Fuschia and it’s clearly made just for me!!
