Catrice Zensibility

I'm more of a practical shopper these days but I simply couldn't help myself when I saw this beautiful, beautiful polish! It's such a gorgeous collector piece – I simply had to add it to my nail polish collection.

Catrice Zensibility is a very feminine, zen-esque LE makeup collection which found inspiration in Asia's meditation techniques and Japanese's Geishas. I'm currently very much into Issey Miyake and Kenzo fragrances, my powdery pastels and rice powder so this collection came at the perfect timing of my Asian fondness. I was slightly interested in The Bouncy Blush but, since the shade looked orange-red I found it more appropriate for Autumn. I was also eyeing the Blending Eyeshadow Brush – maybe I'll pick it up at a later time. The Quattro Eye Shadow Power of Composure features greyish tones and I'm not wearing greys at the moment – the same applied to red lipstick. What caught my eye the most here were the nail polishes. 

Inspired by contemporary calligraphy, Zensibility nail polish collection features fresh light-blue, warm grey, two pink nuances and a bold red. I've picked up Sheer Silence – a very creamy pale pink with a slightly peachy undertone. Don't let the name fool you – this is a two coat pastel and it applies beautifully and even lasts a bit longer than most Catrice polishes on my nails. A unique feature is the very long, tapered cap which emulates calligraphy – it feel like you're dipping your brush into ink. 

You get a bigger 15ml bottle (instead of usual 10ml) and, even though the cap truly is unique – it's not practical because you need to unscrew the ring around it and then pull the tip up – there is some polish buildup and leaking. If you have a habit of shaking the bottle before use, be careful as the tip can poke. This is definitely a collector piece – the bottle looks stunning. Color isn't particularly original but the thick texture and great coverage is reminiscent of Essie's Fiji (which is always a plus!). 

  • Ovih dana sam prakticar pri kupovini ali se nikako nisam uspjela suzdrzati kada sam ugledala ovaj prekrasni lak! Mislim da je unikatan kolekcionarski komad i sa zadovoljstva sam njim obogatila svoju kolekciju.
  • Catrice Zensibility je izuzetno zenstvena LE kozmeticka kolekcija upecatljivog zensibiliteta (morala sam!) cija inspiracija lezi u Aziji, meditacijskim tehnikama i japanskim gejsama. Trenutno prolazim kroz intenzivnu fazu simpatisanja Issey Miyake i Kenzo parfema, puderastih pastelnih boja i rizinog praha tako da je ova kolekcija stigla tacno u vrijeme moje naklonosti Aziji. Nakratko me zainteresovalo The Bouncy rumenilo ali je nijansa crveno-narandzasta, dosta prikladnija jeseni nego ljetu. Takodjer me zanimao Blending Eyeshadow kist – mozda ga kasnije nabavim. Sive nijanse u Quattro Eye Shadow Power of Composure paleti sjena nisu moj djir trenutno – isto vrijedi i za crveni ruz. Ono sto mi je najvise zaokupilo paznju iz ove kolekcije su lakovi za nokte.
  • Inspirisani modernom kaligrafijom, Zensibility lakove za nokte sacinjavaju svjeze svijetlo-plava, topla siva, dvije ruzicaste i crvenkasta nijansa. Ja sam kupila Sheer Silence – veoma kremastu blijedo-ruzicastu sa njeznim podtonom breskve. Nemojte da vas naziv zavara – ovo je lak dosta dobrog prekrivanja i za optimalan rezultat su potrebna samo dva sloja (sto je odlicno u svijetu pastelnih lakova). Cak mi ova formulacija traje malo duze na noktima nego vecina Catrice lakova. Zanimljiv detalj je veoma dug, spicasti vrh cepa koji imitira kaligrafiju – kada koristite lak, imate osjecaj da cete umociti kist u tintu.
  • Ovaj lak je nesto skuplji, kosta oko 7KM ali se u bocici dobije 15ml, umjesto standardnih 10ml. Iako je cep zaista unikatan, nije najprakticniji. Cep na ‘grlu’ bocice se odvrce i vrh drske zasebno koristite – na ivicama ‘grla’ se lak pomalo nakuplja, sto zahtijeva ciscenje. Ako poput mene imate naviku da protresete bocicu laka prije koristenja – oprez! Vrh drske vas moze ubosti (doduse, nije ostar). Ovo je u svakom slucaju kolekcionarski komad koji ce lakoholicarke cijeniti. Nijansa koju koristim nije posebno originalna ali me zbog gustoce i kvalitete mnogo podsjeca na Essie Fiji (sto je veliki kompliment!).

      Ja sam se troumila izmedju Sheer Silence, Greatly Greyish i Turquoisensai.
      Ocigledno je pobijedila Sheer Silence a moguce da cu nabaviti Greatly Greyish – Turquoisensai nije upala u moju kolekciju samo zato sto Essie pravi meni omiljene plave i tirkiz nijanse.
      Ali da je stvarno lijepa i primamljiva – itekako! ♥

    Imam Sheer Silence i Greatly Greyish i jos ih nisam koristila,ali uskoro cu.Moram priznati da i mene Sheer Silence pomalo asocira na Essie Fiji…
