Catrice Absolute Rose Eyeshadow Palette – 010 Frankie Rose to Hollywood

There is something magical about eyeshadow palettes, you get so many colours with different effects and it feels like one can never have enough of the lovely colours that makes our eyes pop.

Housed in a plastic container, this pan contains 6 shades that goes from light to dark. Along with the palette you receive a dual ended applicator, one side being a sponge applicator and the other side being a small brush. To be honest, I never use the applicators provided and use my own eyeshadow brushes.

The colours in this palette is simply beautiful and you can create so many different looks with it. It is hard to capture a picture of the colours that does it justice, so I ended up not including the swatch pictures, because it does not look they way it looks on your eyes.

Varying from light to dark, the colours range from pearly, to matte to shimmer. I have been loving all of these colours and use it basically every day, the only colour I find hard to ‘relate to’ is the dark colour on the far right. I have been struggling to blend the maroon shimmer colour perfectly.

This palette is highly pigmented, smooth on application and very easy to blend, the only problem I am finding with it is that I experience a lot of fallout of product. In the pan itself, but also under my eyes while applying it. So my only tip would be to keep your concealer and setting powder at hand when you apply this product as you might have to follow up with a touch up after applying the eyeshadow. Will it keep me from using it? In no way, no. With such lovely colours it is not a deal breaker with me.

The longevity of this product is quite good, but I have found that if I use it combined with the Catrice Prime and fine eyeshadow base, that the colours seems to stay on longer and that the base just makes the colours pop a little more.

For a budget item, this is definitely a good buy. You can find it at Dischem stores nationwide and it retails for R90.

Love,

Leandra
