CATRICE New Products Initial Impressions! + DEMO!

 

How to turn any BORING polish into a VA-VA-VOOM shade!


HEY DOLLS !
Catrice launched a few more nail polish shades, and by few, 
I mean LOADS!
this is one of them - it's 57 KARL SAYS TRES CHIC. 



It's a nude pink shade, but I'm not a huge fan. 
Unless layered with something else, 
this shade looks so boring on my nails. 

SO I topped it off with this AMAZING nail polish from Catrice, 
again ANOTHER new one, 
it's in the Crushed Crystals range, and its name is 05 STARDUST. 



It's such a gorgeous shade - and that - right there is JUST one layer.
JUST ONE over that boring pink shade. 
AND VOILA! - GORGEOUSNESS!

As with all Catrice nail polishes, they last a couple of days. 
But that topper polish makes everything so unforgiving. 
If it's chipping - no one will care! 

I'll post photos of the other one I got with the topper on top tomorrow - 
because I forgot to put the photos in my laptop and 
I can't be bothered to get up at the moment. 
Don't try to understand the postpartum female mind. 

Anywho - What do you think?
Does that topper look gorgeous OR WHAT!

HAUL | ESSENCE NEW PRODUCTS HAUL ! + Bloopers


This is a gloss. And no - I'm not kidding.


 
 
This is a gloss - Yep, you heard me.
Just the gloss no lipliner, no lipstick.
I'vde had it on since 11.30am, so I've had it on for 5 hours 
- it's not as glossy for as it first started, but the colour is still all there. 
And in the meantime I drank lots, had soup and had pasta a bar of chocolate and the colour is still ALL there. 

Intrigued ? - You should be. 
Stay tuned for the big reveal next week !

SLEEK Sheer Colour Lipstick in Silk | Review w/ Swatches !





HEY DOLLS !
I got to try another shade of lipstick from Sleek.
 I believe this is their older range, 
and this is so interesting. 
Because even though this is in a lipstick tube 
and it looks like a lipstick, 
this is actually a lip highlighter. 


 


I personally like using this on the cupidsbow, 
and in the centre of the lips.
 It is mainly golden sheen,
 barely any colour,
 but it does make your lips look plumper. 
I quite like it!

MAYBELLINE Great Lash Mascara in Blackest Black | Review !





HEY DOLLS!
I’m not going to beat around the bush with this one.
I hate this mascara – 
and I’ll tell you every reason why in this review.



The wand – stupid wand is too tiny. 

I mean it’s ok if you plan to use it for lower lashes ,
 but that’s about it. 
It’s not flexible, and it has traditional natural bristles.
 Doesn’t do anything for my upper or lower lashes.

The shade – it’s not the blackest black. 

I mean seriously Maybelline – is that the best you can do at black? – I don’t mean to be dishing Maybelline. I actually like their Falsies Mascara in the purple tube. But this one sucks

Speaking of Purple tube – I HATE the PACKAGING.

 It’s too girly (not girly as in cute, as in cheap Disney like I’m a teenager woohoo-look. #notdishingdisneyhere –
 I actually LOVE watching disney channel myself, but anyway).
 It’s far too cheap looking.
 It’s easy to find in my collection, that’s the only plus, I guess


The performance – 

Doesn’t lengthen, doesn’t curl, doesn’t volumise.
It’s not even a natural mascara.  
 I mean if you’re a mascara and you fail at doing ALL those things,
 you don’t deserve to call yourself a mascara.
 It’s like if I tell you I’m a cook and I don’t fry, bake or grill.
 I just make sandwiches. 
Out of point missy, out of point. 
And for the love of makeup – don’t worry – it doesn’t clump,
 you’re lucky to see something on your lashes.

 



The lasting power –

 YES, not only does this stupid excuse of a mascara fail as a mascara,
 it FLAKES off, is not waterproof –
 I mean fine, it doesn’t claim to be either. 
But it’s not smudgeproof either. Yuck!
At first I actually hated this mascara,
 then I tried it on my lower lashes and kinda liked it.
 But a week after using it, it either dried up or it just gave up.
 (PS. product was fully sealed before opening it up and I opened it up and used it straight away.)

 BOTTOM LINE

 I highly recommend not buying this thing.

 P.S. Got this in a swap, and I mean no disrespect to the sweet lady who got this for me, there were plenty other products I loved in the swap box. So I’m still glad I got to try it. But you know me and my big mouth, I have to say it as it is. Thanks still guurl!

Tmart Meiniya Lipstick in #008 | Review w/ Swatches !



HEY DOLLS!



 
I bet you’re saying the packaging is gorgeous. 
I think it’s hands down – the cutest lipstick packaging I own.
 Sooo pretty.
 The lipstick in the tube is gorgeous too –
 so I was in for a treat when I got this in the mail. 


It has a cream finish, and applies beautifully,
 and leaves a glossy finish on the lips.
 It swatches a bit more on the cool side, and I love that even more. 





It’s so gorgeous and so me. 
It doesn’t last that long, 
so you’d need to reapply. 
But it doesn’t accentuate fine lines or wrinkles or chapped lips which is great. 
The shade is a bright barbie pink, 
not for the faint-hearted but it’s not unwearable either. 
I personally love it and honestly, 
I highly recommend it!

NIVEA Volume Shine Pure Diamond Mauve Parure #66 | Review w/ Swatches !




HEY DOLLS !
If you’re reading this review you probably love your purples. 
And if you do, might I say, YOU, missy – have an awesome taste. 


I know a good purple is hard to find, 
and this is not only good one but also a great one.
It’s not straight up purple, which makes it more wearable.

 
 The formula is a bit slippery, 
so I set this with translucent powder 
because I wouldn’t want to wear something 
that makes it feel like it might end up on my chin. 
The shade is to dye for, but I’ve already said that. 
It’s not exactly a longlasting lip shade but it is for sure easy to apply and super pigmented



. It applies rather thick on the lips
 so it doesn’t feel quite lightweight. 
It doesn’t have any shimmers or frost to it which is something I love.
I got this in a swap so I have no information on where this is available.
 Here in Malta we only have lip balms and skincare items from Nivea,
 and I’ve never seen these running round.
 So let me know if you have. 


BOTTOM LINE.

Awesome lip shade, a bit too creamy,
 but good when matte and has good staying power when set with translucent powder. 

That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!
