Drugstore Gem: Catrice cosmetics – Velvet Matt Eyeshadow

Hi :)

Eyeshadow lovers know how hard it is to find good matte eyeshadows at affordable prices. German drugstore brand Catrice cosmetics did a great job with these – Velvet Matt eyeshadows are loaded with pigment, extremely soft and buttery, and cost only a fraction of high end eyeshadows price.

Here’s what Catrice says about them on their webpage:

The Velvet Matt Eyeshadows with a new premium texture contain ultra-soft shimmer pigments for a velvety matt finish. Thanks to the silky, highly pigmented formula, the Velvet Matt Eyeshadows practically melt with your skin to create a radiant look.

Indeed, these are silky and among the softest eyeshadows I’ve ever tried. Their texture is excellent. Only downside to it is that you have to be extra careful not to drop them on the floor, because they will crush into million tiny pieces. 😀

There are 6 available shades: Vanillaty Fair (nude vanilla), Pink-Up girls (pastel baby pink), Jump up and brown (warm yellowish brown), Al Burgundy (deep burgundy), Welcome to Greysland (light to midtone grey), Moss wanted colour (greenish grey).

I have two of them – Vanillaty Fair is great for inner corner of the eye and brow highlight, and Pink-Up Girls can look great when applied on whole lid – that kind of eye look, paired with thick black eyeliner, reminds me a bit of 60s mod looks. :)
