Catrice Waterproof Liner & Mascara

I'm taking the “no make-up” make-up look to the next level by recently donning only a BB cream, mascara, ABH Dipbrow Pomade and eventually a lick of liner on my face. I wish I knew where to get a lash lift and a lash tint in my area as I'm reaching new levels of laziness – everyone's been raving about those recently, making me want them soo bad! As mascaras go, only waterproof ones float my boat during summertime. The deBBY waterproof mascara turned out to be a current fave and I'm wearing it as I type this but I also gave this Catrice waterproof mascara & liner duo a whirl and here are my impressions.

Catrice Luxury Lashes Volume Waterproof Mascara (11ml) has a really cool packaging and seems very promising – initially, I really loved the fluffy big brush. Now, you know how mascaras fall either in the “wet” or “dry” category? This one's definitely dry. I prefer a “wet” formula which gets better with time while it's very hard for me to find and agree with a dry-ish formula. The beef I have with these mascaras is that I cannot lengthen my lashes with them, no matter how I try. They always end up looking so sad and tiny. But what kinda threw me most away was the fact it crumbled inside my eye – just a little! But still enough to make eyes feel uncomfortable. And it transferred to the bone beneath my brows (my eyes are a bit hooded and my lashes touch that part of the eye). Another thing I disliked was the fact it was a nightmare to remove – my lashes were left stiff, many fell off during the process of removal and not even the good old almond oil was up to par with this one. Was this simply a bad batch or nor, I am not sure but this guy hasn't left the best impression.

Catrice Eye'Matic Dip Liner Waterproof 010 (3,5ml) is a bit better as the formula is actually long-lasting. I haven't noticed any transfers, crumbles or smudging but the intensity of the black pigment here isn't as punchy as I prefer. I like my liners to be very black. After a few hours, the color fades away leaving the liner appearing grey-ish more than black. These dip eyeliners aren't my fave kind of liners but this one was fairly easy to use (despite having a rigid tip) and lines it drew were pretty precise.

All in all, I'm afraid these two fall into my “meh” pile of tried-out beauty bits. I've tried and used much better Catrice mascaras and liners in the past so I'm really looking forward to trying the new summery collection this overall amazing drugstore brand has prepared for us. Do you have a fave Catrice mascara or liner?

  • Iako generalno volim onaj prirodni “no make-up” make-up look, nivoi lijenosti koje ispoljavam u sferi sminkanja pocinju biti … rekla bih, neprihvatljivi. Ali vrucina mi onemogucava da nosim bilo sta vise od BB kreme, maskare, ABH Dipbrow pomade i eventualno linije tusa. Voljela bih znati gdje u Sarajevu mozemo napraviti podizanje i bojenje trepavica jer u posljednje vrijeme svi pisu o tome i toooliko bih to zeljela napraviti – sigurna sam da bi mi olaksalo zivot! Kada vec “moram” koristiti maskare, u mojoj rotaciji tokom ljeta su samo vodootporni primjerci u opticaju. Jos uvijek sam jako zadovoljna sa deBBY vodootpornom maskarom (koju nosim dok vam ovo tipkam) ali sam isprobala i Catrice kombinaciju vodootporne maskare i tusa o cijim utiscima vam pisem u nastavku.
  • Catrice Luxury Lashes Volume vodootporna maskara (11ml) je prilicno kul, atraktivnog pakovanja i na prvu mi se mnogo dopala i paperjasta, velika cetkica. Znate kako se maskare inace dijele na “mokre” i “suhe”? Ovo je definitivno suhi tip. Licno preferiram “mokre” maskare jer ako i imaju nedostatke, oni vecinom nestanu i maskara biva sve bolja sto je vise koristim. “Suhe” formulacije maskara su mi problematicne jer sa njima tesko mogu izduziti svoje tanke trepavice, bez obzira koliko se trudila. Trepke na kraju uvijek djeluju otuzno, sto ocigledno nije rezultat koji bih zeljela. Ali ono sto me najvise odbilo od konkretno ove Catrice maskare je to sto se trusi i malo je upadne u oko (zaista ne mnogo, cestica do dvije) – ali dovoljno da oko osjeti nelagodu. Takodjer, primjetila sam da se preslikava na kost ispod obrve (moji kapci su pomalo spusteni i trepavice mi dodiruju taj dio koze). Nije pomoglo ni to sto je izuzetno tesko ukloniti je – trepavice su bile tvrde, par njih bi ispalo tokom skidanja maskare. Cak ni dobro, provjereno bademovo ulje nije bilo uvijek dovoljno efektno. Da li me zapao los primjerak ili ne, zaista ne znam ali ova maskara nije ostavila dobar utisak.
  • Catrice Eye'Matic vodootporni dip lajner tus 010 (3,5ml) je nesto bolji proizvod jer mu je formulacija zaista dugotrajna. Nisam primjetila da mi se preslikavao, trusio ni topio pod vrucinama ali intenzitet crne boje nije toliki koliko bih zeljela da je bio. Preferiram dosta crne tuseve a nakon par sati nosenja ovog tusa, primjetila sam da je izblijedio i djelovao je vise sivkasto nego crno. Aplikator ovog tusa mi nije omiljeni tip nanosenja tuseva za oci ali ovaj je bio zaista pristojan – vrh je prilicno nefleksibilan ali linije koje iscrtava su prilicno precizne.
  • Sve u svemu, ovi proizvodi spadaju u “meh” kategoriju isprobane kozmetike – nisu toliko losi ali nisam bila ni zadovoljna tokom koristenja. U proslosti sam isprobala mnogo bolje Catrice maskare i tuseve koje bih prije preporucila nego ove. Generalno gledajuci, Catrice je odlican drogerijski brend i stvarno se radujem isprobavanju ljetnih noviteta koje su za nas pripremili. Imate li mozda omiljenu Catrice maskaru ili tus?

    Začudo nisam probala niti jednu Catrice maskaru, bojim se da se truse i preslikavaju, a eto vidim opravdano 😀 Od drogerijskih maskara su mi najdraže L'Orealove milion lashes (sve boje hehe), a all time favorite je Diorshow maskara.

      Mislim da nisu sve Catrice maskare suocene sa ovim problemom – citala sam neke recenzije za druge njihove maskare i stvarno su utisci pozitivni. Taman imam jos par njihovih maskara na testiranju pa cu javiti dojmove.
