Hope you all had a great weekend. I was off from work this weekend for a change, so i took the time to relax. I honestly didn’t want to do anything too hectic, i went out for a bit yesterday to do some shopping, went for brunch and then went home to do some adulting, washing, cleaning etc, I also wanted to spend some time with the kittens. I can’t believe I’ve only had them for a month and a half, feels like they’re been in my life for ages. They really have mended my heart after losing Tigger.
Anyway, back to the reason we are all here…. the Catrice 24h Made To Stay Makeup Up Foundation. I was kindly sent this foundation as well as a couple other items from Cosmetix SA, when they were launching the new Catrice products for the season.
I love Catrice, i always have a Catrice foundation in my collection at home, they honestly make some of the best (drugstore or not) foundations I have ever tried.
The packaging is a glass bottle with a pump action, i tend to use 1 / 2 pumps for a light coverage and 3 pumps for a full coverage look. The formula is pretty runny and liquidy but easy enough to work with
This 24h Made To Stay Foundation is a mattifying foundation that lasts hours, i would know as i start work at 6am some mornings, so my makeup is applied at 5am, i then only get home at roughly 5pm or 6pm depending, and the foundation has stayed put. Also, i don’t do any touch ups during the day as i’m too busy at work
What i love about this foundation:
1. Its mattifying so it keeps my oily skin at bay
2. Its a buildbale foundation, so if i’m just leaving the house quickly to run to the mall, I just dab a few drops and blend it for a light coverage, but if i want a full coverage i apply another layer
3. Even with full coverage, it still feels lightweight on my skin
4. Its a foundation enriched with anti-oxidants
There is only 1 downside to this foundation, because its a mattifying foundation it tends to dry very quckly, so i use a damp beauty blender and work pretty quickly. So downside fixed?
1 more Bonus, ALL Catrice product are animal friendly!!!
There are 4 shades in this range
- 005 Ivory Beige
- 010 Nude Beige
- 015 Vanilla Beige
- 025 Warm Beige
This is definately a foundation i will repurchase. Have you tried it yet?
