Top 5 CATRICE Products

If you're a regular reader, you'll know that Catrice Cosmetics is one of my favourite budget brands - so I thought it's time to post a roundup of my favourite products from their current line! I settled for a Top 5, even though I've tried (and loved) more products from the brand. The thing is that they swap their regular line of products bi-annually, so sometimes good products get discontinued nonetheless - what you see here should be in stock right now, however! (Please note that the prices might vary from country to country - they're not even the same in Germany and Austria because of taxes etc.!)

# Catrice Nude Illusion Makeup: This is my current go-to foundation! It's a great, lightweight formula with light to medium coverage (for full coverage, look into the Velvet Finish Foundation) that blends very easily into the skin. The only downside to this is that there isn't a great shade selection available, but if you're lucky enough to find a match, this is a great option for a budget foundation! See full review here. (7,99€)

# Catrice Liquid Metal Gel Eye Pencils: I've raved about these in a few posts before, but they are just that good! I never was one for pencil eyeliners before, but since I discovered these, I wear them more than liquid liner. They have a super-creamy, pigmented formula and last ages - when I went to remove the swatches on my arm, they had already stained my skin. I always find that when I'm wearing these on my eyes, they easily last the longest and look the best at the end of the day, so I highly recommend these! (3,49€)

# Catrice Illuminating Blush: I've also mentioned this blush before, but I felt like it deserved another mention because I've been using it a lot in the past few months. It has great pigmentation (I usually apply it with a stippling brush) and gives a beautiful peachy glow to the cheeks - perfect for the days where I don't want to wear highlighter and still want my face to look less dull! See full review here. (3,99€)

# Catrice Glamour Doll Volume Mascara: This is one of my two favourite budget mascaras. There's various formulas of the Glamour Doll Mascara, this one being the original one as far as I know. I have tried the Curl & Volume version as well, but I like this way better because of it's formula. It's not as wet and tacky as the Curl & Volume formula and just does what a good mascara is supposed to do: it tints my lashes black, lenghtens them, gives more volume and is super affordable as well! (3,99€)

# Catrice Camouflage Cream: Last but not least I want to mention this heavy-duty concealer! I had this for a while and as you can see it's about to get emptied, but I fee like it's important to mention that the formula of this doesn't change even though I definitely had this in my collection for longer than a year (more like two)! It's a pretty thick, paste-like formula that's brilliant for covering really nasty blemishes/redness, but it's not something you'd want to use for covering dark circles. See full review here. (2,99€)

Do you have Catrice Cosmetics in your country? If so, what's your favourite product from the brand? :)


  1. I'm going to give those Eye Pencils a try for sure! Have a couple from Kiko, that fit the purpose but they don't last very long. Probably also because my eyelids are oily, I need to invest in an eye primer!

    1. I really didn't expect to love these eye pencils as much as I do, it's kinda ridiculous because I never really cared much for kajal-like pencils .. but the formula is seriously amazeballs! :D
      I never had a problem with eyeshadow or liner creasing until recently, so I'm also on the lookout for a good eye primer that doesn't break the bank. Catrice just released a new one as far as i know, so maybe I'll try that if I can find it and report back! :)
