Catrice Contouring Palette

Contouring, highlighting and strobing, they are the new and latest trends. Every second high end company are bringing on palettes but none of the budget brands had any palettes. Well that was until Catrice brought out their new contouring palette. Retailing at €4.50 it is pretty hard to beat.

The packaging of the new Prime and Fine professional contouring palette is very sleek, simple and classy-looking. The packaging is slim and not heavy, which makes this your perfect travel palette! The lid is see-through, which you know I love. That way it's very easy to see the product without having to open it. 

The Palette comes with 5 cream shades which I have swatched below from left to right.

So there is a matte ashy brown contouring shade,a slightly darker shade which is ideal for defining the contour. There is a peachy undertone and yellow undertone matte concealer/highlighting colour. And then finally at the end of the All Round Contour Palette there’s a light cream shimmering shade, which I like to use as a base for powder highlight and as a inner eye highlight. 

Budget brands seems to struggle with the cream contour and highlighting medium. Catrice really have changed that. The pigment is strong, the texture is light and creamy without being oily and all of the shades blend really well into the skin. After blending, there is no excess residue or shininess. I’ve worn all the shades numerous times and didn’t get any creasing or oxidising. I always set my contour with powder as I have some oilyness on my T zone. 

The light shades can even be used for concealing for those that have a medium skintone as they are so pigmented. I love using the shimmery highlighter colour as a base for powder highlight. I love that you get a warm and a cool contour shade as you can contour using the cool shade and then add more definition using the warm shade.  I really have nothing negative to say about this palette. It is most definetely an all round palette and it is super affordable at €4.50. If i had one thing to say I would like the light matte shades to be a little lighter as us pale toned Irish skins find it hard to get a good under eye concealer colour. But other than that it is an amazing palette. 

Catrice is available locally in Penneys, Waterford Health Park Pharmacy, Sam McCauley Chemists and selected pharmacies.
