Simply Lippy Challenge Day 251 | Catrice Ultimate Lip Colour Lipstick in Shade 490, Plum & Base

Of all the Catrice lipsticks I’ve tried this year and in general really, the Ultimate Colour range is by far my favourite. The creaminess of the formula in this lipstick is just amazing, and my lips always feel so moisturised when I wear one from the collection.


Today’s shade, Plum & Base, is just gorgeous and is the perfect autumnal plum shade; it’s rich with a slight berry tone and the pigment is unreal. 


The formula is very creamy which makes this lipstick so easy to apply and it blends like an absolutely dream too. The colour pay off means you don’t need to apply much, and the lasting power is pretty great for a cream finish.


We spent the day celebrating my lovely sister-in-laws birthday at one of our favourite restaurants, which of course, called for a special lipstick and this is definitely a special one.


I still can’t get over how budget friendly they are at just €4.49 which is quite frankly a steal for a lippy as good as this! 


The shade is very similar to YSL’s Prune Virgin which I wore back at the beginning of the year, and I’m going to go so far as to say, I think I prefer this one to that. Just goes to show that price isn’t everything when it comes to lipstick!
