♥ CATRICE ♥ Lumination Collection {Review)


Hi Everyone

♥ WHAT THEY SAY   This summer, pastel rosé and bright pink shades are elegantly combined with shimmering metallics. The implementation of modern rosé gold during the Spring/Summer fashion shows already demonstrated the ubiquitous strength of this extravagant trend. The new Limited Edition “Lumination” by CATRICE is offering multi-facetted beauty products with unique effects. The must-haves include the new Pure Chrome Eye Shadows with a metallic glow, the Powder Blush in warm rosé gold with a matt finish as well as the baked Luminizing Bronzer with elegant marbling. The blush texture is a true eye-catcher with its rosé gold artwork and relief structure reminiscent of liquid metal. A bright outlook is guaranteed

I adore this collection. It looks elegant and expensive with its Rose Gold (my favourite colour) Metallic packaging, but with an affordable price tag.

I didn’t buy the whole collection, i bought everything except the eyeshadows

Precious Lips – either in shiny nude-rosé with a holographic effect or semi-matt in bright pink – are the must-have accessory of the summer. Both colours have a creamy texture that feels wonderfully pleasant on your lips.

  • Radiant Rose
  • Pink MATTrix

Pink Mattrix is a semi matte gorgeous bright pink with a creamy formula that only needs one swipe on the lips for full coverage and even though its a semi matte it doesn’t dry out the lips at all. As stunning ar Radiant Rose is to look at i’m not a fan of glitter lipsticks.



Gilded Rose Blush. Warm rosé gold provides your cheeks with a fresh touch for a naturally healthy look. The blush has a powdery matt finish and feels lovely on your skin. A limited highlight, which is easy to blend and provides a long-lasting finish.

  • Flushed-Fiction

This blush is perfect for any skin tone. Its a gorgeous matte rose pink with a smooth powder finish. I use my Real Techniques Blush Brush to apply it.



Marbled Bronzer. The baked bronzing powder with metallic marbling gives your face and neckline a natural-looking tan with a subtle shimmer effect. The bronzer is ideally applied with a powder brush – for a smooth colour finish and a flawless complexion!

  • New Bronze Age

I mostly own matte bronzers, so using this Shimmer Baked Marbled Bronzer is a bit different for me but i do love it. I feel its not suitable for lighter skins, but more for medium to darker skin tones. It can also be used as a bronze eyeshadow.  I use my Cala Deluxe Powder Brush to apply bronzer.



Highlighter – Perfect Glow. Set subtle light reflections quickly and easily with the highlighting powder. The delicate texture with unique marbling leaves a fine shimmer on your face and neckline. For beautifully radiant skin

  • Luminous Light

This is my favourite item in the collection. Its beautiful to look at but mostly importantly its an amazing quality highlighter. I use both matte and shimmer highlighters, and this is now my favourite out of all my highlighters. It gives such a nice glow to the face. I apply it to my temples, at the tops of my cheeks (under my eyes), the bridge of my nose, my cupids bow and my chin. I use the Real Techniques Setting Brush

Nail LacquerThe Future. Ultimate colour, ultimate coverage and ultimate durability. The four limited Nail Lacquers provide your nails with a finish reminiscent of liquid metal – whether in modern rosé gold, metallic pink, soft nude or holographic graphite.

I applied one coat of colour to each swatch stick with 1 top coat of clear. It applied a little streaky but nothing a top coat can’t fix (except with Stargazer its was still a little streaky)

♥ Interstellar is a mix between a rose gold and bronze with a touch of shimmer. This is my favourite colour.

♥ Cosmic Pink is a bright Fuchsia Pink with hints of gold shimmer. The perfect colour for Summer

♥ Stargazer is a White cool-toned Gold with tons of shimmer.

♥ HoloGREYphic is a Sheer Pearl opalescent cool-toned colour with touches of shimmer. Probably my least favourite of the lot.

What is your Favourite item from this Lumination Collection?
