Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick #220 Step Red Up [review w/ swatches!!]



HELLO GUYS!!
I have a Catrice lipstick review today,
I have had this lipstick since the bloggers event that I was invited to earlier in August.
 FYI - It takes me so long to review a product for multiple reasons.

A. I don't test something out once and review it because I don't believe that's the way to go.
B. I have a loadful of reviews to post first. I buy so many products and it takes me some time to take photos and all.

So yes - that's why it takes me so long to review,
because I don't want to be misleading or anything like that.

Anyway here's my review on
 Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick #220 Step Red Up




PACKAGING
Awesome packaging, 
closes thoroughly, 
very sleek, 
you get the name, hint of colour and number at the bottom, 
glossy black packaging. 
What's not to like? 



TEXTURE
Glides like a dream
Doesn't apply a thick heavy layer on the lips, 
 Nice and creamy, 
love it.
 



PIGMENTATION
I wouldn't say you'd get maximum colour payoff in one swipe.
It usually takes me 2 swipes to get the colour I want.. 
but it's worth it.



BUILDABLE
very buildable, 
and it doesn't look weird or thick on the lips when you do.


SCENT
It has a slight sweet sugary smell (at least that's what I think it is)
but is only detectable if you smell the lipstick in the tube directly.
I kind of like that because there is no fake cosmetic smell to it that's going to bother you while applying it,
but it's not going to linger or anything on the lips..
because it won't transfer.






FINISH
The finish is almost an in between of a cream finish to satin finish. 
It has just the right amount of glossiness to it without being overly creamy

LASTING POWER
Pretty good.. I mean it's average.. around 3-4 hours.
But I don't mind reapplying.. 
as it's quite a forgiving shade and I don't feel I need a mirror 
to make sure it has been applied perfectly.

SHADE
A blue toned deep red.


BOTTOM LINE
I LOVE the formula of these lipsticks, 
the packaging, 
just everything about them is amazing.
I personally prefer matte reds but I have no problem mattifying this one out.
The most thing I love about these,
is that when you have chapped lips,
they are quite forgiving and won't further dry out your lips. 
I reach for them quite a lot and I HIGHLY recommend these!
These retail for €4.50

I hope you guys liked this review,
I'll be reviewing another two shades in future posts..

Anyway!
Take care guys!!
