Catrice x Eman Makeup Collection – Review and Swatches

Last fall Catrice Cosmetics invited me to a media event celebrating their collaboration with YouTube Influencer – Eman.

This budget-friendly German brand is well known for their high quality, luxury-inspired makeup but teaming up with a well known trend expert and releasing the collection at Canada’s leading beauty boutique is a fantastic idea!

There are only 3 palettes in the line but they all contain vivid must-have shades that look amazing on all complexions. To complete your look, locate the Catrice display at Shoppers Drug Mart and stock-up on creamy matte lipstick, skin perfecting primers and long-lasting setting spray.

The Bronzed AF Eye Shadow Palette ($14.99) is currently in my travel bag because it has all the colors I usually wear for work and a night out. Vibrant gold, deep copper, rich brown and beige-y caramel are perfect for any occasion and the buttery texture is easy to work with. You’ll love how the smooth mattes balance the radiant shimmers to create beautiful contrast, highlight and definition. Creasing is not a problem but there may be some fallout.

When I’m running late or only have a few minutes to do my makeup in the morning, this is the palette I reach for.  

I’m obsessed with the Ultimate Matte Lipsticks ($9.99). They glide on effortlessly and deliver velvety, lightweight pigment with bold saturation. For the price, these may be some of the best matte lipsticks you can get at the drugstore. The formula is not fade-proof or super long-lasting but I did get a few hours of wear before needing a touch-up and the finish is quite moisturizing. If you purchase the eye palette I highly recommend pairing it with 030 - classic bombshell red or 040 – deep plum (depending on your outfit and mood).

The Cheeky Blush Palette ($14.99) has everything you need to take your complexion from dull to fabulous! I love the bright orange, shimmery coral and soft brown but I usually mix the pink with another shade to tone it down. The smooth, silky powders apply consistently with buildable color payoff.

Goodbye Pores ($9.99) provides a lovely soft focus effect that refines uneven skin texture by blurring lines, roughness and blemishes. It also prevents transfer and prolongs wear so your makeup looks fresh for hours. Keep Me Matte ($9.99) is a moisturizing base that smooths and minimizes shine. Use the Prime and Fine Finishing Spray ($9.99) to lock in your look and keep foundation in place all day.

Highlighter is a great way to achieve a healthy glow even on bad skin days and the Lit Palette ($14.00) is iridescent and dreamy. You get 4 pretty shades – silver, yellow gold, champagne and bronze. The shimmer applies evenly and radiant with no chunky glitter. Sweep them on lightly for a natural glow or layer for more drama. You can also use them as eye shadow.

Catrice is available at shoppers Drug Mart and online at
