When I’ve had a disappointing lipstick day, I like to try something the following day that I’m pretty sure I’ll like and there’s no safer brand for me to do that with, than with Catrice. I’m sure you all know by now that I’m a huge fan of the brand and have a particular soft spot for their lipsticks, most of which I adore.
It’s been a while since I’ve worn one of their velvet matte lip creams however, so I decided it was time to take another one out. The last time I tried one of these in shade, Hazel Rose-Royce, I wasn’t overly impressed, and while it was nice, it wasn’t one of my favourite Catrice lipsticks.
Because of that, I didn’t know how I would get on with today’s shade, Rose Your Voice, but I needn’t have worried because I love it.
First off, the shade, while it looks like a pink-rose in the tube, it actually applies like more of a coral or peach rose. I didn’t mind that because the pigment is very good, and it’s a great all rounder shade, especially for days when you want a relaxed makeup look.
The formula is creamy, and while it’s not particularly moisturising, it doesn’t dry out the lips and keeps them soft all day. The colour pay off is very good, it blends well, and has a lovely smooth texture to it too.
Catrice describe it as having a satin matte finish, but for me, it’s a bit too wet to be described as a matte. It does dry slightly after applying, but the creamy element is much more prominent and I kind of like that.
I think after having a bad lipstick yesterday, I really liked wearing this today, it’s easy and hassle free, and I loved the soft shade too. For me, you just can’t go wrong with a Catrice lipstick.
What do you guys think, have you tried any Catrice lippies?
