Catrice sent a few newbies the other day but the real stand out was The Precious Copper eye shadow palette.
Being a blue-eyed girl, warm natural hues always make my eyes pop so from a shade perspective it’s a win. I also really liked that the colour selection. Most of the shades are different enough from the other to justify their existence. (In the past Catrice and Essence have put out palettes where I felt too many shades were too similar. You don’t really need four variations of cream, right?)
I also like that each shadow, which has a satin finish, is super duper soft and nicely pigmented so they stroke on like magic and are easy to blend. Catrice has also included a ‘highlighting’ shade and ‘contouring’ shade. These are no different in terms of ‘finish’ or formulation to the other hues and there’s no need to play by any rules. I just use whatever shades I feel like and plonk them wherever I wish.
I’ll update this post with another bronzier look tomorrow.
At just R99 for nine shades (R93 on Takealot), The Precious Copper is a seriously good value palette of a quality that overshadows (ha ha) many other drugstore offerings that are more than double the price.
