Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette

9:39:00 AM

A couple of months ago I received this eyeshadow palette as present from my father-in-law, together with other Catrice Cosmetics products which I shared with you HERE.

I have been really enjoying this palette for over a month now since it's the first eyeshadow palette I own that has all neutral shades in it.

Product Info from Catrice Cosmetics
Six nude shades in one palette: subtle sand, delicate beige and brown in various facets. Some matt, some with a shimmer. The soft eye shadow texture with high pigmentation and colour dispersion creates natural-looking eye make-up, yet is also ideal for smokey eye styles in the evening. With a practical double-ended applicator.

Retail Price: around €5.49 euros
Catrice can be bought in Germany

Back portion of the palette has a guide on how to get the Nude Look

The palette is housed in a thick plastic material. It is very simple yet functional and I really like that the cover is transparent so I can see the shades inside.  It also comes with a double-ended applicator. There's a sponge tip on one side and a brush on the other. I was really surprised that the brush applicator was soft and very usable, so that's a good thing.

The palette comes with 6 neutral shades. It does not include any matte eyeshadow. All shades have shimmer on them. It looks like they all have a satin finish.

Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette Swatches
The pigmentation of this palette is average. It is not as pigmented compared to Wet n Wild eye shadows but it has good color payoff. The texture is really soft and smooth.

What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* practical and convenient packaging
* comes with a double-ended applicator
* contains pretty all neutral shades
* good pigmentation
* not chalky
* has less fall outs
* has soft texture which applies smoothly
* no funky cosmetic scent
* no allergy or irritation experienced

What I don't like...
* does not have a matte shade
* not easily available, but can be bought online

My rating: 4 / 5

Overall, it is a really good palette to have considering the really affordable price tag.  So, if you ever chance upon this palette, I suggest you go ahead and grab it. ^_^

Until next time.
