Catrice Sand Nude Eye Shadow Palette

I had mentioned earlier that my taste in cosmetics has evolved drastically. I do not enjoy the too made up look. And even though I still love my red lipsticks, I prefer keeping my face minimal and let imperfections shine through. It is now that my love for earthy and nudes tones for the eyes have grown more than ever. The experiments began quite sometime ago.

When I was new to Manila and was still dabbling around to get familiar with brands and products
that I came across Catrice. In India, I have heard much about the brand. Seeing that there are kiosks at SM Beauty sections or often even at Watsons, I randomly picked up this palette from Catrice.

The price was around 450 PHP I think.

My review of Catrice Sand Nude Eye Shadow Palette:

  • I am going to keep my review short and get to it straight.
  • The colors look beautiful in the palette, but wouldn't show up on people of color.
  • On skin, the lighter ones look almost the same.
  • Only the two deeper colors show up and all the colors are cool toned.
  • There is significant amount of fall outs as the product itself is chalky and dusty.
  • Without a base the colors don't last long.

And that's more or less what it is about.

I do not recommend or would buy again. Simple as that.
