Catrice Absolute Eye Colour eyeshadows

So I just finished watching the Australian Open Semi-Final match between Federer and Murray. Murray won with 5 sets and I'm looking forward to the final match between him and Djokovic. I've been a supporter of Federer for years now and the first tennis match I've ever watched is of him and some other dude which I don't even remember who it was. I did, however remember watching him play that first time and thinking "Wow, this dude is realllllyy good!" I was pretty clueless and didn't even realize I was watching the then world No. 1 tennis player in action.

Anyway, today I want to share with you guys my thoughts on Catrice's Absolute Eye Colour eyeshadows! There are a lot to choose from and I initially picked up 5 or so to try out but in the end I only got 2 because I have a really hard time deciding whether or not it's worth it and whether I really need them so 2 it is!

These are the two shades that I got!

I absolutely love the packaging! The eye shadows come in a clear plastic case with a closure that snaps shut and I love how you can easily see the color of the eye shadow! The packaging is not too bulky or too small which makes it perfect for traveling. Again, the plastic case makes the product seem a lot more expensive than it really is! Much like their bronzing powder. Each individual eye shadow comes with 2g of product. For comparison, a single MAC eyeshadow comes with 1.5g of product.

These eye shadows retails for B$4.90 in Paloma, The Mall. Mr Copper's Field is a gorgeous shimmering copper-gold color and it's great to use as an all-over-the-lid shade or even as a highlight in the inner corners of the eye. Starlight Expresso, on the other hand is a matte cool-toned taupe color. I don't know if this is the same with the rest but I find that the matte Starlight Expresso is more powdery than the shimmery Mr. Copper's Fields.

They are surprisingly pigmented and easy to blend! I was in a rush to go out a few days ago and I decided to put on Starlight Expresso. I even used my fingers to apply it on as well as blend it onto my lids and it worked out pretty well. However, I'd recommend you to put on some primer before applying any Catrice eye shadow if you want it to last longer because I tried using it once without any primer on and with one swipe of a wet tissue the eye shadow is gone! This surprises me because it usually takes a whole lot more than that for me to remove the Urban Decay eye shadow that I use all the time.

Overall I really enjoyed using these and they have been my go-to eye shadows currently. After trying these out they make me wanna go back and try the other shades! I'd probably go back for more neutral shades though. I wonder how pigmented are their colorful eye shadows, the blues and greens especially.


  1. Thanks for your lovely comment and happy weekend!

  2. Hi Shelly, I bought two of Catrice Absolute Eye Colour 540 Rose Marie's Baby (shimmer) & 370 Don't Lie, Lac! (matte). I found that matte type eyeshadow have vibrant/ pigmented than shimmer type. Yes, as you said these eyeshadow easily can be wipe-off if wearing without eyeshadow base. I've done random experiment, using wet brush to appy the eyeshadow & I'm glad with the result. It make the colour more vibrant and help to 'lock' it on place. Hope this useful :)

    1. Awesome idea, I will try it out next time! x
