Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation

Catrice HD Liquid Foundation

*the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation was not a press ample. No sponsored content or ads are included.

I’m not very easily impressed when it comes to foundations but the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation keeps selling out so when I finally saw it in the shops I had to try it. It was less than €8 in Penneys and it’s one of my favourite bargain buys.

The Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation comes in a hard plastic bottle which feels like glass making it look expensive. This is one of the first things I really liked. It’s very sturdy (I’m constantly dropping things).

The bottle doesn’t have a pump but it has a dropper. This is isn’t the most convenient thing in my opinion. I think it get’s messy and I’d rather a pump to avoid any mess but you might like it. I decant it onto my Inglot mixing palette which was about €8.

The shade I got the shade 010 Light Beige. I usually find that affordable foundations have pink undertones in all their lightest shades but I like that this one is warm toned. In saying that this is one of the lightest shades and it’s not actually very light. It’s probably similar to MAC NC20-25. I blend this one down my neck slightly and this makes it work for me. It dries down to a darker shade so keep this in mind when you’re choosing your shade.

I found the best way to apply this foundation is to use either a damp beauty blender or to buff it in using a flat top kabuki brush. I didn’t like applying it with a traditional foundation brush, it was too much work to blend. It was much less work using an applicator that would really buff it into the skin.

One pump does my whole face and has a medium buildable coverage. This makes this foundation great value for money because you need less product to build up the coverage and it costs less than €8.

The Catrice HD Liquid foundation will suit normal or oily skin types due to it’s mattifying. It doesn’t look at all powdery on the skin and I love the finish.

This foundation lasts a decent amount of time on my oily face. Shine does come through on my t-zone area as the day goes on but it doesn’t break apart at all or become patchy like a lot of other affordable foundations. Put it this way, I don’t look like a shiny mess. A bit of powder on my forehead and I’m good to go again!

I would compare this Catrice foundation to my favourite Estée Lauder Double Wear because it had good coverage and it lasts brilliantly throughout the day. The Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation has become my new favourite affordable foundation. If you have oily/oily combination skin and you can find your shade then grab this.

Penneys AW17 Collection- My Top Picks

Penneys is absolutely killing it with their AW17 fashion and beauty collection. We’ve seen the mini mouse glitter heels trending online but there’s so much more coming too.

Here are my favourite picks from the press launch that are going to fly out the door. Hopefully we all grab some of these pieces for AW17.

Let’s just mention the famous glittery heels for anyone who hasn’t seen them. An absolute steel at €19 and available from Penneys in gold and black.

Gold Heels €19
Black Heels €19

Sticking with shoes we have these gorgeous Pyrex glitter heels with a black sole and clear strap. They’ll go with everything and hopefully that block heel is as comfortable as it looks.

Pyrex Shoes €24

On to boots we have these really cool metallic silver boot with pointy heel. This type of heel is so on trend this season and if you’re looking for something that’s casual and more of statement than black, then these are your new babies. I like to splash out on black boots (if I can) and pick up trendy things like these from Penneys

Silver Boots €17

Tassel earrings are everywhere! I don’t usually fork out on items like this so thankfully Penneys have us covered with earrings starting at €3! I’m hoping to nab these ones.

On to clothes and sticking with the tassel trend is this white jumper. I think it’s gorgeous and hoping it’s as cosey as it looks. Perfect with jeans and boots.

Tassle Jumper €15

Embroidry is here to stay and I’m loving this skirt. I think skirt from Penneys is super cute.

ProFusion Cosmetics Trendsetter Face Palette

*contains press sample that was gifted by ProFusion Cosmetics to try. No sponsored content or ads are included.

I received a huge package of goodies from Profusion Makeup Europe recently. ProFusion Cosmetics are a makeup brand from California. They have big palettes at affordable prices so I had a little swatch sesh of the Trendsetter Face Palette so that you could have a look see!

Face Palette

I was so impressed with the packaging. It comes in a pleather case with a mirror which is super handy. It’s easy to wipe clean and it’s sturdy too which is great.

One side of the palette contains eyeshadow and the other contains bronzer, blush, highlight, lipstick, eyeliner and brushes.

The eyeshadow colours are well thought out. There’s light, medium and dark shades as well as cool, warm and bright tones. There’s a good mixture of mattes and shimmers too so it’s very easy to create a variety of looks with the selection.

Brush Swatches of First Row of Eyeshadows
Finger Swatches of Second Row of Eyeshadows

The face side is also well thought out with light, medium and dark shades in all the powders and the lipstick comes in nude and a dark purple.

The Blusher Options
Contour, Bronzer and Highlight
Lipstick Shades

The only thing I wouldn’t personally get use out of is the brushes. I think they’re on the rough side but everything else is decent for the price.

Yes, some of the eyeshadows are powdery but for me it’s expected with most eyeshadows from an affordable brand. The blush and bronzes are especially nice.

If you’re starting out in makeup or if you want to experiment with colours then you will like the Profusion Face Kit. It’s €14.99 and available in pharmacies nationwide.

After trying these I would be interested to see what other gems the brand has to offer.
