Catrice Cosmetics is one of those drugstore makeup brands that I've been wanting to be available here in Manila. I've tried their lipsticks before and I liked it a lot. When I found out last year that Catrice Cosmetics had landed in SM department stores, I rushed to SM Megamall only to find out that their counter (then) was only in SM Manila.
I found a reason to go to Manila and go to SM Manila for lunch. I had to make an excuse to L because he might not be game to go all the way to Manila just to see a new makeup brand. LOL.
I came home from SM Manila PhP3,000 poorer but happy that I have new products from Catrice Cosmetics.
How matte can this foundation get?
I had difficulty the first few times I used this because I didn't know the foundation came with a pump. For some odd reason, I twisted the whole thing not realising it has a cap that I could just pull out. After a week of using it, I accidentally pulled it and saw the pump. The struggle was real, guys.
I'm so happy it came with a pump because not all foundations come with a pump, y'know! Hygiene concerns covered! No need to worry about double dipping y'all.
All Matt Plus Foundation in 030 Warm Beige
Just in case this is the first time you've reached my blog, let me brief you that I when it comes to foundations, I almost always get a shade darker than my skin tone. If you just base it from my skin tone, I could pass for the 020 shade. But since it might turn lighter on me once it oxidises, I got the darker one.
(your) left part of the face: no foundation
(your) right part of the face: one layer of foundation
I love this foundation because of its coverage! See how one layer of foundation evens out my skin tone. It's like a miracle but isn't! Ang galing! It also dries matte but doesn't leave your face patchy. It gives you the healthy kind of matte skin. When I'm using this foundation, I no longer use concealer unless I have a big zit somewhere on my face. It doesn't say it's naked something yada yada yada but one layer gives you that my-skin-but-better foundation. I've tried applying 3 layers and my face still doesn't look overdone. It still looks natural just with an even skin tone. Sometimes, I don't even set this with powder anymore. And even then, staying power at least 6 hours.
Another winner factor of this product is its price point! It's only PhP499 for a 30ml liquid foundation! This foundation works better than some of my high-end foundation but costs only a fraction of their price. Definitely a winner. I'd say this is definitely a must-try product from Catrice Cosmetics.
I still have several products from the brand - eyeshadow palette, lipstick, spot concealer, and concealer palette. Let me know which one you want me to review next!
