I had to take a photo of these babies as soon as I got home because I’m no marshmallow-test passer in Walter Mischel’s experiment (which I’m trying my hardest at for Selene to succeed at because PSYCHOLOGY). I guess you can call these impulse buys – although technically, I have been planning to buy them even before the brand landed in the country. So I guess, it wasn’t so much an impulsive decision? #cognitivedissonance Okay, enough psycho-babble.. let’s talk eyeshadows.
The Liquid Metals pictured above: Gold Leaf and We are the Champagnes (love the clever names of these).
I’ve had my eye on Catrice eyeshadows for such a long time after seeing beautiful swatches on Claire’s post, they just aren’t easy to get a hold of. Thankfully, SM Beauty Hall recently added the brand to the numerous global drugstore brands they carry.
The Liquid Metals are my kind of frost – despite their finish, they don’t so much highlight eyelid lines (let’s not emphasize my crepey lids once more). They have extremely good pigmentation – maximum opacity in one swipe, especially the darker shades. However, I find that the 3D embossing tends to crumble when swatched with pressure – therefore causing fallout. Moreover, because of this — they tend to feel a bit grainy and powdery.
When blended, they tend to sheer out (as expected which means it’s a breeze to blend) so I usually pat on another layer to increase saturation. I got two light-medium shades, Gold Leaf Me – a khaki gold that registers more green than I expected; and We are the Champagnes – a light champagne gold. My arm swatches above are the worst, I can’t get the true shades to show.
No affiliate links. Items were bought by me at SM Dept. Store. The Catrice Liquid Metals are priced at PHP329 each.
These are beautiful on the eyes — albeit not as foily as I wanted them to be (I prayed and hoped they’d show up like Stila’s Magnificent Metals). They’re definitely not made for those who shy away from shimmer but let me just share that they don’t at all look like the cheap kind of sparkly.
For the look above, I used the Gold Leaf shade on the lids and used LORAC Mauve for the crease, just because it doesn’t look complete as a one-look shade. I feel that when wearing light shimmery shades such as these, they’re best paired with a matte light brown on the crease always. It’s because my eyes tend to look smaller when I wear lighter shades on.
For PHP 329 bucks, it’s not exactly super cheap for a single shadow. But the quality is there and the amount is most definitely there (although who can really finish up an eyeshadow single!?). I don’t know, I wanted to love these more but I’m just okay with it at the moment. I should’ve maybe picked up one dark shade – but we’ll see how my EQ goes once I pass by a counter soon.
Have you tried any Catrice eyeshadows? I believe they have a few different eyeshadow ranges – the Velvet Mattes and Absolute Mattes, to name a few.
