Review: What’s new at Catrice including their awesome Glamour Doll mascara. Trust me when I say you’re going to love it.

I was sent of few of Catrice’s new goodies and thought I’d show off some of my favourites. Ready to get stuck in?

Catrice Glamour Doll Curl & Volume mascara, price TBA.

This arrived when my friend Ina was visiting from Germany. She picked it up, slicked on and went ‘Wow!’ I followed suit and said the same thing; ‘Wow!’

Glamour Doll up top, no Glamour Doll down below. I'm actually annoyed with this pic as my application was rushed and didn't do it justice.

This baby promises to curl and volumise and delivers on both, particularly the curl bit, with the added benefit of not being a clump-monster. For a cheapie, this is a serious gem of a mascara.

Catrice Made to Stay Smoothing Lip Polish, price TBA.

If you’re a fan of YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture but hate the price tag you’ll appreciate this dude. Much like the former, it serves up the pigmentation of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss but, after it wears off, your lips are left with a stain.

This shade's called Katherine's Fuchsia.
This shade’s called ‘Megan Fuchsia’.

Obviously it’s packaging isn’t half as luxe-looking as YSL’s offering, but I actually prefer the shape of its applicator. It’s less wide so I can get it into the corner of my mouth with ease. Feel-wise, the actual product itself is quite similar but not 100% the same. Still, it’s close enough and good enough in its own right to get a two thumbs up.

Other goodies worth a mention? Catrice’s Lash Couture single lashes (price TBA) look like a nice alternative to pricier brands but I haven’t tried them myself. Could be cool, could be kak. But at least you know they’re there.

There's a little glue tucked in behind the cardboard.

Another goodie? Catrice Prime and Fine mattifying powder (price TBA). It’s pretty much a total ‘waterproof’, vitamin A and E-infused dupe for MAC’s Prep + Prime translucent finishing powder.

I love that the compact contains a mirror.

Once you’ve finished your make-up, use a kabuki brush to sweep it across your face to mattify and minimise the look of fine lines and pores. Personally, I won’t use this product, be it Catrice or MAC, as I find that, even though it’s ‘translucent’, it ‘pales me out’ a little. Still, there are a million girls who think I’m being pathetic and swear by MAC’s version. And if that’s you, you’ll want to give this dude a bash.

Now run off to Dis-Chem (Catrice is exclusive to them) and buy that wow-inducing Glamour Doll mascara. It’s Awesome with a capital A.

Love, love
