Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder

Paloma recently added a new cosmetics line in their shop and it was none other than Catrice, the popular European cosmetic brand in which MissChievous on youtube often raved about. If I'm not mistaken, she mentioned a few times about their products and how it's a really affordable drugstore brand where she came from. Either way, from the packaging alone it's pretty obvious that Catrice and Essence cosmetics have the same manufacturer. 

Paloma at The Mall is stocked full of Catrice products 

I can't help but pick up a few things myself because they are just so darn cheap. It's the perfect price range for younger teens who are just starting to get into makeup and wanted to experience with colors. Anyway I'm also glad to see the extended range of neutral colored eye shadows they are selling.

There are two bronzing shades and I picked up the darker colored one called 020 Deep Bronze only because I have medium skin and any bronzing powder lighter than this shade will probably not show up nicely on my skin. 

I really like the packaging of this stuff! It comes in a compact plastic case with a clear cover which snaps shut and it has quite a bit of product in it too at 9.5g. To compare, a MAC bronzing powder has 10g of product. The Catrice bronzing powder retails for B5.90 whilst a MAC bronzing powder costs about B$38! Also, you have to admit the imprint on the bronzer itself is gorgeous! Basically the whole packaging looks way more expensive than it really is! And to think that it'll cost you only 1/6 of what MAC is selling is just mind blowing.

 The good thing about this is that it's Matte!! I remembered The Body Shop came out with bronzing powder a few years ago and they are really shimmery with glitters in it and I just don't know how to work the product with all the shimmers and glitters. Some people like to use the bronzing powder all over the face for a bit of color but I prefer to use them to lightly contour my face. 

This product is pigmented too so I always make sure to use a light hand when working it onto my skin. I have to say the color doesn't complement my skin 100% but nonetheless it works. For contouring, I like using either my Sigma tapered highlighter brush F35 or the large angled contour F40. Depends on which one is clean lol

I dropped by the shop again yesterday and noticed that their products are selling really good! I remembered back in the days when I just started getting into makeup how hard it was to find affordable makeup products, even simple things like brushes, primers and bronzing powders! Now they're almost everywhere (if you knew where to find them, of course) and I can't help but feel relieved. haha

  11. Wow I wish we have them in my country too! The selection of affordable cosmetics for student price range is really limited - I think there's only one brand like that in our local cosmetic market. They look really good!
