[REVIEW] Catrice Cosmetics Absolute Rose Eyeshadow Palette

Hi y'all! I finally have the energy to write a post, I was struggling with sickness yesterday which was so terrible. I am glad that I am feeling better today.

Catrice Cosmetics Absolute Rose Eyeshadow Palette

I got this at Paloma, The Mall for BND7.90. This is my first purchase of the European brand, Catrice Cosmetics.
Frankly, I purchased this right before the exams where I should be doing some last-minute revision instead. But oh well, I like to loosen up the tension before actually entering the exam hall. I bought it because the colors look soooo pretty and I like rosy tones at the moment. It comes with a variety of 6 beautiful colors, sponge eyeshadow applicator at one end and a blending brush at the other end. Other shades available from the same line are the Nude and Smokey palette. I actually wanted to get my hands on the Nude and Smokey but.....I restrained myself and should keep in mind that I need to save up.

Color description;
Since the shades doesn't have any names, I will just label them as numbers, in-relating to their order in the palette itself.
1 - nude color that suits as a base
2 - nude pink that suits as a base too. This color appears more intense than the first color
3 - light shimmery brown
4 - darker brown than no.3 and shimmery too
5 - dark lilac/ashy purple somekind of color
6 - chocolate with red shimmers
All of the colors have shimmers but colors 1, 2 and 5 have a few shimmery effect compared to others.

Texture: All shadows are powdery, but gives a good color pay off (refer swatches at the bottom) and lasts long especially for the darker colors. I remembered I swatched the shadows on my hand and left it overnight because I am lazy to wash (not in a disgusting way), I just want to experiment and without the use of primer too, and it stays! though it fades a bit.

The applicators: they are soft, grabbed the shadows easily, easy and okay to use. The blending brush blends the color well too.
Back packaging of the product is really detailed and excellent in providing instructions on how to actually use the plaette! The product lasts 12 months after opening and weighs 6g.
Swatches on my fingers above are colors 1, 2, 3.
Swatches for shadows 4, 5, 6. No.5 looks so different in this photo, probably due to lighting.
Swatches 1 to 6 from left to right. No. 4 appears somekind of pinkish when it is actually shimmery light brown in real life. No.6 appears shimmery with tiny red glitters on my fingers but the glitters are rarely seen when I swiped it on my hand. Anyway, the colors are pigmented, medium-ly pigmented in my opinion, but still pigmented. Haha.

My final thoughts; since the colors are light, soft and not crazy (eg. blue or green eyeshadows), people who likes to rock soft eyes will definitely like this palette, it gives out a good color pay off too. The product is cheap (BND7.90) considered that it comes with 6 eyeshadows, a blending brush and sponge eyeshadow applicator, it is light to carry around and suitable for travel. I personally think that the product is an okay palette to experiment with, especially for beginners like me.

Will I repurchase?
Nah, I'd like to experiment with a different palette.

My overall ratings;

Have anyone of you tried out this product before? Lemme know in the comment section below!

Photos and swatches are all mine. I bought the palette with my own money. My thoughts and experiences are all true and honest.

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

Whiteheads, blackheads and pores are such a disturbance to the face! and their developments are just inevitable! If you are looking for a mild product that can improve the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, continue reading down below! Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm I got the product from a local seller on Instagram. Her IG is naturecarebeauty The quoted actual price by the seller was $12. But I got it for $9 because there was a flash sale! It is stated that the images/texts on the product is printed with soy ink. I find it amusing because I never knew that soy ink can be used for printing! The ink seems to have a good quality too. The box is like made out of recycled paper. I really like the save-the-environment concept. English description, instructions and ingredients of the product. How I wish I can translate this part for you guys At first, I thought the product is a makeup base to cover the pores...but it isn't. It is a massage balm to extract the whitehea…

I loved that product, I considered it as my HOLY GRAIL and I am happy to be able to use it again this year!
This Tiam My Signature C-Source is the renewed version of the OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum. This is because the brand OST C20 is rebranded to TIAM. As for the product, ONLY the product name has been changed while the ingredients and everything else stayed the same.

Disclaimer: I received this product from TIAM in exchange for my honest review.

Texts on the box still looks the same except for the name.

Same old ingredients~
