Catrice has to be one of my favorite drugstore makeup brands, their permanent line is filled with staples, but the best are the Limited Editions that are released every couple of months. Moving into fall the latest of these limited editions is Check & Tweed. Inspired by the British classics, the style is “Brit Chic, a perfect blend of understatement, girlish charm and a hint of rebellion”.
The collection includes two baked eyeshadow palettes, with three neutral shades and a pop of colour, either a blue or a green, an Eyebrow Fixing Gel, three Velvet Lip Colours in fall colours (a berry, a muted orange and a red), a pinky Highlighting Powder and five Ultimate Nail Lacquers ranging from blue to green, brick and pink colors. The general vibe is one of muted-earthy colors and playing with different effects and textures: from the baked eyeshadows to the metallic nail polish, from the velvety lipsticks to the shimmer details in the highlighter. The packaging is gorgeous and is all matte black with checkered details, either lacquered black on black for the lipsticks and the nail polishes or colors on the eyeshadow palettes. Shall we talk about names? We go from a more classic Brit Chic for the brick colored nail polish to London’s Eye for one of the eyeshadow palettes, super cute! I think they did a great job with this collection and it definitely looks amazing for a drugstore brand.
