I was so excited to hear that Ulta was now carrying Catrice makeup, I placed a little order for a few of their things! I put together a makeup and nails look using some of them, and a few other things. I hope you like lots of pictures and swatches!
With all of the makeup I have, there are two types I keep finding myself reaching for: metallics, and orange/golds. I think I must miss the Disco era.
Until this point, I'd only tried Catrice nail polish, so I picked up a couple of their lipsticks from their Ultimate Stay collection. I'm wearing Plum & Base for this look. It's like a satin matte, very comfortable, pretty long-wearing on me. I can't get enough berry lippies.
For the eye look, I couldn't wait to try out these Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadows. I also added in a few Makeup Geek shadows, too (later this week, I'll have a post with my MG swatches). I used We Are The Champagnes in the inner corner and 1/3 of the lid, MG Cosmopolitan in the center, blended out into Catrice Nougat It Right. Pretty sure I used MG Cupcake as a transition shade, too.
|On the eyes: Milani Eye Shadow Primer, It Cosmetics Brow Power in Universal Taupe, It Cosmetics Tightline mascara, Physicians Formula Eye Booster liquid eyeliner in Ultra Black, and Makeup Geek and Catrice Eyeshadows.|
Dance Legend 48 looks like an unassuming holo in the bottle, but it is all kinds of amazing on the nail. I couldn't take enough pictures to show you all the color shifting. It goes from purple taupe to violet, to a rose gold to an orange gold, depending on how the light hits it. I was transfixed.
I used LeaLac plate B and Finger Paints Black Expressionism for the stamping over Dance Legend 48.
