Make up can be expensive, you could do with taking a loan out to re-stock much loved big brand products or even add a colour splash to your regular make up base.
But in the same way that we have started to migrate from designer clothes, food and accessories, it is now time to move on from expensive make up brands.
If you have not heard, seen or touched any Catrice Make Up - you have certainly been missing out. Catrice are hitting the Irish market with products that are cheap, look good and - work!
Their make up is not for those who want to be weighed down with heavy make up, larger than life false lashes and overly bronzed cheekbones, but will work for ladies who want a simple, natural and professional look, while also having a little change left over!
The Catrice range is large and all encompassing, but some of the stand out items that should take your fancy includes the Prime & Fine Smoother Refiner (€5.49). Primers are the new must have product to help smooth out lines, gloss over pores and keep your make up on for longer. This small tub of pink is elbowing other more expensive fancy primers out of the way this season.
Draw attention to your bright big eyes with The Made to Stay Highlighter Pen (€4.29). The long-lasting creamy and powdery formula sets radiant highlights under your eyebrows or the outer and inner corners of your eyes for a light and youthful complexion.
Add a hint of a summer tint with the new Coolibri Jelly Cheek Tint (€4.49) which you can use on lips and cheeks. Catrice Volume Plus + Waterproof Mascara (€3.99) is not just water, sweat and tear proof, but also about offering continuous volume and does not weight your eyes down with clumps!
Finish off your perfect face with Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder - long lasting and non drying, it adapts to your skin tone and gives a velvet feel.
If your make up basics is lacking some colour, break out those pennies and spend on the new Catrice Coolibri Nector Lip Gloss (€4.29), flirt with the Absolute Colour Mono eyeshadow (€3.29) and flash those fingers with the Ultimate nail collection (€2.79). The Summer just got brighter - don’t’ you think?!
Catrice is available in pharmacies nationwide as well as select Dunnes and Pennys.
