Hopefully I am not the last person to announce that there’s a new cosmetics brand in Guardian outlets (about 36 outlets, so I was told) since a month ago. I just spotted it this morning at Guardian KLCC. Catrice has so many products especially the mascaras and nail polish! Prices are very reasonable as almost everything is below RM50!
I tried a mascara for volumizing, it’s pretty good but I need the waterproof version. The second last product I spotted were the limited edition Blush Pearls (of which there is only one left) – immediately I thought this was the drugstore version of Guerlain Meteorites but this one doesn’t have as many colours as Meteorites.
The last product I checked out because it was tucked away in a corner next to the Blush Pearls was Catrice Iridiscent Topper. Such a tiny bottle. I was intrigued, initially thinking it was a nail product.
According to the description of this product in the Catrice website, this topper stands for one of the biggest trends in 2014: 3D-shimmer effects. The quick-drying liquid in a soft rosé-gold is applied on top of your eyeshadow or used as a highlighter for your body and face to intensify any styling.
Catrice Iridiscent Topper has minute particles of gold within a liquid : shake well before using
Would this be like the liquid version of Dior Mono Show Mirror? I’ve got to have products like this to jazz up my eye shadows. I need shimmer in my life and this looked promising! The bottle cap is attached to a dropper which makes for easy dispensation and one drop is all you need, talk about good mileage.
Oh yes, there was subtle rose-gold shimmer all right. It gives the Dior Fusion Mono Mirror a run for the money since the effect is more or less the same at 1/5 the price. I am sooooo in love with this right now. Now excuse me while I go off and play with it some more.
All Catrice products are currently on discount. This product retails at RM19.70 after the discount.
This is really nice and what?!!! RM 19.70?! That’s really cheap!!!
I hope this brand will be carried by some of the Guardians up north very soon. So far I have not seen it here. I think this brand is related to the other budget brand known as Essence.
not that prominent..but still good for that price 😉
Actually if you want more shimmer, another layer can be applied. I applied very little because I just want subtle shimmer.
OMG, I was looking for something like this for a long time and this just fit my budget. I haven’t see it here yet. Can’t wait to try it soon.
