Simply Lippy Challenge Day 112 | Catrice Lip Cushion in Shade 010, Rather Be At Coachella 

If you’ve been following my lipstick challenge up to now, I’m sure it won’t come as any surprise that for Saturday’s lipstick choice, I tried out my third shade from the Catrice lip cushion range.


I tried these a few months back for the first time, both on Day 56 and Day 88 of my challenge, and while I loved the first shade Coraline’s Crush, I was a bit disappointed by the second one, Better Make A Mauve.


Thankfully, I’m happy to say that I really like today’s shade, Rather Be At Coachella, which is not dissimilar to Coraline’s Crush in that it has a peachy tone and is a light coral.


The pigment isn’t quite as strong as Coraline’s Crush but is definitely better than Better Make A Mauve (which I found to be very sheer and gloss like), and it also has a nice creamy texture to it. 


It is glossy but not too sticky; my hair did catch in it once or twice but only very slightly, and the thick consistency allows it to stay in place well for a sheer, gloss finish.


I really like this soft shade: I don’t know that I love it as much as Coraline’s Crush, but I do like it, and definitely plan on wearing it again in the future.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 56 | Catrice Lip Cushion in Shade 030, Coraline’s Crush

It’s a lovely sunny day in Dublin today which made me want to wear a bright Spring shade for today’s Simply Lippy lipstick. I don’t know what it is about sunshine, but it makes everything seem happier, brighter and better, and this gorgeous coral shade from Catrice was the perfect choice for that reason.

I recently saw these new lip cushions from Catrice on social media, and they looked so nice, I knew I had to buy one and try it out as soon as possible. Only released a few weeks ago, they are already receiving rave reviews and I can see why.

The shade, Coraline’s Crush, is a rich salmon coral and the soft cushion brush allows for even application which leaves the lips smooth and perfectly covered with lipstick. I was expecting a sheer gloss finish, but while it is glossy, the pigment is more opaque than sheer, and I am just so impressed by it.

I love every Catrice lipstick I’ve tired and I’m very happy to say I love this one equally as much now too. The gloss is non-sticky, has great lasting power, and the colour is just gorgeous. 

For a budget brand, Catrice manage to release quality products over and over again and are fast becoming one of my favourite go-to brands. Once again, I’ve got nothing but good things to say about their lipsticks and that makes me very happy!

There are six gorgeous shades in this range and I can see them becoming very popular. In fact, I can’t wait to try out the other five to see if I love those as much as I am loving this one, so watch this space.

I hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday. Don’t forget to come follow me over on my social media pages too; I’m on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
