Today's post might as well be entitled "guess who went crazy on a Catrice LE". I picked lots of stuff, so let's check it out together, shall we?
Two coats, no top coat. These all dry to a matt finish! I was surprised. I had expected some sort of sand polish or something similar, but not this. Also, I love the color! I put it straight back on after I'd finished swatching. What's even funnier, I picked this up although I didn't really like it. I'm not a huge fan of gold tones, so I didn't expect much at all from this one, and it blew me away. Nice.
Two coats, no top coat. My second favorite, without a doubt. Really vibrant, don't you think? It screams New Year's Eve to me.
Two coats, no top coat. Again, a really pretty one. A great shade of green, lovely finish. These all look quite nice shiny, too, but I actually prefer them matt.
Of Royal Blood
Two coats, no top coat. Now this is a not-so-favorite; it applies a little patchy because it dries pretty fast, so the surface is kind of uneven. I still think it's kind of cool to have a "naturally" matt red, though.
lipstick "Of Royal Blood"
I love the design of this LE, don't you? The crown emblem is really cool in my opinion. The lipstick applies nicely and isn't really shiny, but not truly matt either. I guess that's what people call a semi-matt. Based on the name, I had expected a deep, blood kind of red, but this is actually pretty heavy on the purple - though not as much as the other lipstick in the LE (called Pink Punk).
eyeliner "Velvet Black"
This has a felt tip, as you can see. It gives you quite nice control. Don't ask why I wrote love, because I don't know. Okay, so let me tell you something about this eyeliner: This rubs off within half a second as soon as it gets wet. That really disappointed me, because on the back of the little bottle it even says something like "long-wearing". An eyeliner that can be so easily removed with water is definitely not long-wearing... WTF, Catrice? Anyway, just keep that in mind when considering whether or not you would like to purchase this item.
I also got the liplocking base, but I haven't tried it out yet. It looks like a lip balm in a skinny tube. The only nail polish I didn't get is the plummy purple - it's just not my color (the name is the same as for the second lipstick, Pink Punk). So, any favorites?
