Catrice Made to Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows

Hi there everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend!

I got the Catrice Made to Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows from the Modern Muse Collection last week and I thought I'd post swatches.

They will be part of the permanent range of Catrice products so no need to rush. I got all three because I liked how neutral and wearable these are.

So let's get right into it, the shades in the pots look like this:

040 Lord of the Blings
is a brownish silvery shade

060 Jennifer's Goldrush
is a golden olive shade
(it took me a while to get the punchline... Jennifer Rush, do you remember her? :o))

050 Metall of Honor
is a chocolate brown shade

(click to enlarge)

Catrice describes them as longlasting metallic creme shadows.

I find them more gritty than metallic and a little sheer. They remind me of the MAC paint pots that came out with the Cham Pale Collection earlier this year, lots of frost but not too much color. They're only 3,49 euros though, compared to the MAC shadows, which were 19,50 euros!
(*edit: both the Catrice shadows and the MAC paint pots contain 5 g/0,17 fl oz)

I also found that they are a little hard to spread evenly. They dry down very fast and you have to be precise with your application or you'll end up rubbing them out with your fingers. I apply all cream shadows with my MAC 217 blending brush and I realized quickly that I had to be really precise the first time around. Because once they're on they're on!

It could be that these are already a bit dried up because when I bought them at Müller drugstore the lids were loosely sitting on the pots, I don't know how long they have been standing there like this, half-open! So it could only be that only mine are a little hard to work with.

I can't tell you much about how long they last because I tested them on my eyes when I got them but removed them right away. They were not removed that easily, so I bet these stay put.
Today I used them for a complete eye makeup on top of Urban Decay Primer Potion. So far, after 2 hours of wear, no creasing whatsoever! I predict that these are really longwearing, due to the fact that they dry down so fast and do not budge after that.

So pros and cons:

Nice neutral and wearable shades
At 3,49 euros very affordable
Probably longlasting, from what I can tell so far
(*edit: they absolutely are longlasting, I am able to report now, one day later, they held up perfectly)


A little gritty and sheer
A little hard to spread evenly
A little hard to blend

All in all I think they you get good value for your money. If they bring out more neutral shades like these, I will definitely be looking into them.

Lol the names. I like Lord of the Blings a lot. Such a taupey silver looking color.

i've been really into good cream shadows lately and these look lovely. catrice is only available in europe though right? too bad i live in the united states.

@JC: Yes, they always come up with really funny names! That should be on the cons side :o)

@sugarbumpkin: I'm afraid yes... but essence is now available in the u.s., too, and catrice and essence both belong to cosnova beauty, so i'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, maybe catrice will make it to the u.s. too!

i haven't had one single cream eyeshadow ever, so i guess now's the time to get one. the ones from catrice look really good!

Ich habe mir heute 040 und 060 gekauft und werde später ausgiebig am Auge testen.
050 wollte ich auch; waren aber alle schon "benutzt".
Sehe die Pros und Cons ebenso wie Du; eine gute Alternative.

LG Britta

@christerl: should you not like these, i highly recommend the Benefit ones, they're my favorite!

@My Bathroom Is My Castle: Hallo Britta! In meiner Filiale waren alle bis auf diese 3 auch angetatscht und zusätzlich waren die Deckel nicht richtig zugedreht *grumpf* Ich finde das auch total ärgerlich, der Aufsteller war noch komplett befüllt, aber fast alles schon betatscht!

Täuscht es, oder ist da nur ganz wenig drin? Hab eben kurz gedacht, dass gerade so der Boden bedeckt ist.

Mir gefällt der 040 am meisten :)


Blusherine on August 8, 2011 at 1:46 PM said...

@PinkCitrus: Wart mal, ich hab sie extra mit in die Arbeit genommen, falls irgendwelche Fragen kommen *inderhandtaschekram*
Also die Füllmenge ist 5 Gramm, gleich viel wie bei einem MAC Paint Pot, aber stimmt, es schaut weniger aus! Hab jetzt keinen Paint Pot da zum Vergleichen, hätt ich auch dran denken können ;-)

My Bathroom Is My Castle on August 8, 2011 at 1:46 PM said...

Es gab ja natürlich auch keine Tester - buh! Aber dafür hoffe ich auf welche im permanenten Regal.

Das Aufheizen der Maske ist definitiv das Beste daran! Ich könnte echt jeden Tag, weil ich das Spektakel an sich so faszinierend finde *hahahahaha*

Liebe Grüße!

Ich finde, dass in den Lidschatten ganz "ok" was drin ist; der Boden ist im Vergleich zu den Gel Eyelinern ganz gut gefüllt und nicht so dickwandig unbefüllt; @PinkCitrus.


PinkCitrus on August 8, 2011 at 2:37 PM said...

Dann täuscht es wohl gewaltig:D Ich habe dir übrigens einen Award verliehen. Vielleicht hast du Zeit und Lust mitzumachen :)

@PinkCitrus: Vielen lieben Dank! :-)

ich hab mir den 060 gekauft, da ich die anderen farben anderweitig schon hab. die kommen ja eh ins permanente sortiment. habe sie nicht ausprobiert und wenn dann werde ich es auch mit einer base machen. paint pots halten bei mir leider auch nicht lange ohne. tolle idee von catrice. hoffe, die kommen auch mit anderen farben raus. ich trage sie immer mit dem finger auf. mit dem pinsel komme ich nicht klar :-)

Lilly on August 8, 2011 at 7:37 PM said...

give them another shot with a stiffer brush. I found out that when I use smashbox's blending brush with glittery cream eyeshadows they appear more opaque on the lid.
anyway I don't know why I'm writing this in english anyway ... also anderen pinsel verwenden, dann verschwinden ein paar der genannten negativpunkte.

Beautiful colours. I hope these will appear at our drugstores as well *fingers crossed*

i love 040!! been really into the benefit paint pots lately so this may be a nice alternative


Blusherine on August 9, 2011 at 8:56 AM said...

@lily.puderquaste: halli-hallo lily, mit dem finger male ich meistens mehr an als ich will :o)) aber manche cream bases trage ich auch mit dem finger auf!

@Lilly: ja das probier ich mal, auf jeden fall!
