Simply Lippy Challenge Day 221 | Catrice Lip Cushion in Shade 060, What Happens After Midnight…

A few months back, you may remember that Catrice launched these cushion lip glosses which I was very excited about at the time. I tried out a few shades in the collection, and liked some more than others, mostly because the pigment was quite weak in some of the paler shades.

I’ve had this shade sitting in my lippy drawer for a while now waiting to be used, and decided today was the day to give it a whirl. And I am so glad I did because I really like it!

After being a bit undecided about the pigment in these, I wasn’t expecting much but when I applied it to my lips I was very pleasantly surprised. The pigment is amazing! I don’t know if it’s because of it being a darker shade or not, but the colour really pops on your lips and I love the rich berry tone of the shade too.

The finish is gloss so this isn’t a full coverage lippy, but I don’t mind a gloss every once in a while, especially when the pigment is a nice as this, and I also like the creamy/vinyl feel it gives your lips when you apply it.

As it is a gloss, naturally the staying power isn’t as good as a cream or matte finish, but it’s not bad either and I do like that it isn’t sticky – because like most people, I really don’t like a sticky gloss!

I am a really big fan of Catrice in general, their products are such good quality particularly given their budget price point, and I think this will be one lippy that I’ll definitely wear again.
