Catrice Matt Mousse Make Up & Allround Coverstick

5/24/2015



Here we have a face base duo which quite honestly I'd never pick up for myself. Why? Well, my combo skin is heavily leaning towards the dehydrated type during these past months and anything mousse-like makes me cringe. Concealer-wise, I'm very much set on my Clarins Instant Concealer and I'm not looking for anything new currently. However, I am willing to borrow my face for beauty purposes of course and I've gladly tested the aforementioned duo and - felt rather pleased, even surprised by the results. Catrice Matt Mousse Make Up (16g for approx 4,99€) is an old favorite among Catrice fans and it got reformulated and even dressed in a new suit to match! Packaging is quite nice - glass pot with a plastic lid, quite standard and functional. If you don't mind dipping your fingers in, that is - in that case, a small dedicated spatula or a clean cotton bud would work. As any mousse-like base product, this is also a mattifying foundation which aims to create a bit powdery but naturally flawless finish whilst masking imperfections. Available in only four shades, this foundation doesn't offer the most varied color choice. I own the shade 025 Light Beige and it definitely seems to be too dark and too orange in comparison with my skin. It's the second darkest shade from the range, has a strong yellow undertone and would probably not suit most fair skin tones - some medium skin tones might get away with it. Thanks to the mousse-like airy texture, it's easily blendable and can barely pass on my skin.

Danas na meniju imamo proizvode za lice koje licno ne bih odabrala. Zasto? Iz razloga sto je moja mjesovita koza u posljednjih par mjeseci dosta dehidrirana i bilo kakav proizvod za lice pjenaste teksture naprosto izaziva nelagodu. Sto se tice korektora, prilicno sam zadovoljna sa svojim Clarins Instant Concealer korektorom i nisam u potrazi za necim novim. Ipak, itekako sam spremna da posudim svoje lice u dobre, korisne svrhe beauty testiranja i moram priznati da sam prijatno iznenadjena rezultatima. Catrice Matt Mousse Make Up puder u pjeni (16g proizvoda kosta cca 10KM) je cvrsti favorit medju mnogim Catrice ljubiteljicama od ranije a sada se ponovo pojavio u ponudi reformuliran i u novom ruhu. Pakovanje je dosta fino - staklenka sa plasticnim poklopcem je dosta standardna no jako prakticna ukoliko vam ne smeta nanosenje (cistim) prstima. Ukoliko je to slucaj, namjenska kasikica i/ili stapic za uho bi sigurno posluzili svrsi. Kao i svaka kozmeticka baza za lice pjenaste formulacije, ovdje se takodjer radi o puderu koji matira, ciljano kreira pomalo puderast no relativno prirodan izgled koze dok ujedno eliminise izgled nesavrsenstava. Posto je ovaj puder dostupan u samo cetiri nijanse, sigurno se radi o mani posto se dosta nijansi koze (pogotovo izrazito svijetle) nece moci pronaci u ponudjenim nijansama. Posjedujem nijansu 025 Light Beige koja ocigledno da djeluje dosta tamno, pa cak i narandzasto u poredjenju sa mojom kozom. Druga je najtamnija nijansa iz ponude, dosta je izrazajnog zutog podtona i vjerovatno ne bi odgovarala vecinskom dijelu vlasnica svijetlog tena. Mozda bi se mogla stopiti sa pojedinim srednje tamnim tenom - samo se zahvaljujuci jako laganoj i lijepoj formulaciji ova nijansa uspjela prilicno uspjesno stopiti sa mojom kozom.



As I've mentioned, the texture is extremely light, airy and pleasant. There is no noticeable scent and it's beautifully blendable. I'm positively surprised by how easily it merges with the skin and although most similar foundations look unnatural on me, this one looks very decent. But be careful not to over-apply as it tends to look cakey with too much layers. I found that it mattifies rather nicely (the T-zone keeps in check for approx 6h-7h but my skin isn't too oily) but if you have very oily skin, I'd recommend a base/primer underneath as it can get transferred easily (for me, it's my nose and chin area). It offers light to medium coverage and it evens out imperfections such as pores, fine lines, acne scars very well and tends to unify the complexion. It's not the most natural-looking foundation but it's amazing during days when my blemishes appear and I need more coverage. Even though brand advertises it as a foundation which suits all skin types, I'd stay away from it if I had dry skin. It can make dry, scaly skin even more noticeable. It works wonderfully with the Catrice Allround Coverstick (2,6g for approx 2,99€). Available in only three shades, I have the lightest one called 010 Nude. Beige colored plastic tube houses an almost lipstick-like bullet and concealer. It's very creamy, opaque and hides imperfections like redness around the nose, acne scars, blemishes etc, impressively well but it needs to be fixed with a powder to be kept in place. I wouldn't call it suitable for every part of the face as it seems to be too creamy for the under-eye area but it's a very solid concealer - and perfect for the handbag! With this post I end my Catrice Cosmetics Beauty Week Takeover - I hope you've njoyed reading it, I've certainly enjoyed wiritng everything down and taking photos.

Kako sam spomenula, tekstura je izrazito lagana, prozracna i prijatna. Nema znacajnijeg mirisa i jako se lijepo blenda. Prijatno sam iznenadjena kako se na uvjerljiv nacin stopi sa kozom i iako bi vecina slicnih pudera na meni izgledala neprirodno - ovaj uspijeva da pruzi jedan fin, oku ugodan efekat. Ipak, budite oprezne da ga ne nanesete previse posto je samo jedan sloj viska dovoljan da puder pocne izgledati pretesko na kozi. Primjetila sam da lijepo matira (moju T-zonu drzi pod kontrolom otprilike 6h-7h no moja koza nije mnogo masna) ali ako vam je koza izrazito masna preporucila bih koristenje neke baze/prajmera kako bi produzili trajnost i sprijecili da se puder skida sa pojedinih dijelova lica (kod mene su to nos i brada). Ovaj pjenusavi puder pruza lagano do srednje prekrivanje i jako dobro 'brise' nesavrsenstva poput pora, finih linija i oziljaka od akni te uopsteno ujednaci ten sa prilicnim uspjehom. Ovaj puder nije jedan od onih koji dopustaju da koza proviruje ispod, nije posebno 'socan' i sl. ali je odlican tokom dana kada mi je potrebno vece prekrivanje. Iako brend tvrdi da je ovaj puder pogodan za sve tipove koze, ipak bih preporucila vlasnicama suhe koze da ga preskoce jer izrazava suhe i perutave dijelove lica (ne strasno ali znala sam to primjetiti). Divno saradjuje sa Catrice Allround Coverstick korektorom (2,6g proizvoda kosta cca 6KM). Dostupan je u samo tri nijanse a ja posjedujem najsvjetliju pod nazivom 010 Nude. Dolazi upakovan u stik bez/beige boje koze koji je izradjen od plastike i slici karminu za usne. Rekla bih da je ovaj korektor dosta kremast, lijepo prekriva nesavrsenstva poput crvenila oko nosa, oziljaka od bubuljica, same bubuljice i sl. Ipak je potrebno da ga fiksiram puderom u kamenu ili prahu jer je sklon pomjeranju upravo zbog kremaste formulacije - ovo se ponajvise odnosi na podrucje ispod ociju. Mozda nije jednako uspjesan u svakoj ulozi prekrivanja na licu ali je zbog pakovanja dosta praktican i volim ga sa sobom nositi u neseseru. Zakljucno sa ovim postom zavrsavam Catrice Cosmetics Beauty Week Takeover - nadam se da vam se ovosedmicni sadrzaj na blogu dopao, meni je u svakom slucaju bilo zadovoljstvo zapisivati svoja opazanja i fotografisati kozmetiku.
