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.
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.
