Again I kind of wanna say that this is the best face powder in the drugstore but I have not tried all the powder so I feel like I can’t say that… but what’s the point in trying different products when you have found one that really works for you? So I can say that I have found that best face powder that works really well for me and this is the Catrice prime and fine mattifying powder.
I do have oily/combination skin so naturally I’m always looking for powders that gonna keep me matte all day or at least as long as possible. Although in the winter my skin does get dry and less oily so then it is important that I don’t look too powdery. This powder feels very smooth and fine on the skin. I can almost say it feels like nothing and looks like nothing on my skin yet it makes everything so smooth and fills in my pores well too.
I also like the way it sets under my eyes, they never look too powder heavy and it stops any creasing that my previous drugstore powders never fully did.
I use in in the shade transparent because I don’t like my powders to have any colours.
It works well with settings sprays, I use it with my NYX Matte setting spray and it keep me looking nice and matte all day.
I feel like I really found a gem in this powder I’m already on my second pan and hitting pan on it as well. The one thing I really want to do is try their loose powder as well see if it is as good as this one. Probably is.
Have you tired anything from Catrice Cosmetics? Any fave products? Any good drugstore powders that are your holy grail ones? Let me know, I’m curious.
That’s all for this little review, I hope you liked it.
Until next time,
Currently as I’m writing this post I am spending my holiday back in my hometown in Hungary. The weather here is very warm already, around 27 degrees. I don’t like to apply a lot of make up when it’s this hot outside or warmer, but I still like to put a little bit of make up on to, you know, make me feel more like a functioning human. I came up with this very easy make up look and have been doing this every morning since being away, for like four days. It is so easy and simple and I only need five product. (even though I have my make up bag full of products that I brought but don’t use, haha).
First stop is the brows. I feel like even if I didn’t have any make up on I would still like my brows to be filled in and look nice. It simply just makes your whole face look a lot better in my opinion. I have been using the brow pencil by Tanya Burr Cosmetics in the shade medium.
For eyeshadow I actually apply a highlighter also by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. It look gorgeous on the eyes, not too much yet perfectly shimmery for the sun outside.
I couldn’t go anywhere without a concealer. My dark under eyes need to be hidden away wherever I go so I always use my trusted conceal and define concealer by Make Up Revolution. The coverage with this concealer is unreal and it stays on my face for a long time even without setting it.
For my face I only use a blush. Especially if it’s really sunny outside. I want my skin to be as free of make up as possible and not let any chemicals burn into my skin. But it’s hard to resist this gorgeous blush which I think is just perfect for holidays. It is a bit shimmery and has a pink shade, very flattering on the skin too.
Last product of course has to be a mascara. Benefit’s Roller Lash is just perfect when you want your lashes to appear big and voluminous. Especially when you have so little make up on your eyes.
So this is my very easy and simple make up routine that is I think perfect and quick for holidays. How do you do your make up when you’re on holiday?
Until next time,
