Catrice Multi Colour Compact Powder Review

Dear Beauties,

Hope you all are having a great week :) I am going to review Catrice Multi Color Compact Powder for you all. For all who don’t know about Catrice, here is a little bit about this amazing brand.

Catrice Multi Colour Compact Powder Review

Catrice is an European local brand and they have an amazing range of products. The best part of their products is that they are all very reasonably priced with quality which can match up to high-end brands! I have their eyeliner, skin finish compact, blush, etc., and love all of them!

Catrice Multi Color Compact Powder comes in 2 shades – 010 – Rose Beige and 020 Sand Beige. I am reviewing Sand Beige today.

Product Description:

A flawless finish is guaranteed: the new graffiti technology simply conjurs away irregularities of the skin. The five perfectly aligned colors give you a matte, smooth and naturally fresh-looking complexion. For lighter and darker skin types.

My Experience with Catrice Multi Colour Compact Powder:

I am in love with this compact! I adore the packaging, comes in transparent case with golden lettering. As you can see, it consists of 5 different colors of compact shades together. It looks very attractive and classy! I usually use this compact on days when I am in no mood to go through the entire foundation+setting powder routine. I use my Ecotools Bronzer Brush to swirl around all the colors and apply directly on my moisturized face. It definitely evens out my complexion and gives a natural finish. Its perfect for daily office wear or if you are going for grocery shopping and just want your skin to look shine free and even. It does give a subtle glow to the skin which looks very flattering and natural.  The texture is extremely smooth and there is absolutely no fall out! So, you can imagine how finely milled the powder is.

It does not give enough coverage to hide scars and acne, but it beautifully mattifies the skin and evens out the skin tone to a great extent, though if you have heavy pigmentation, this is not for you. I have used this on my bare face and love the effect! The pink color in the compact actually gives a very natural flush on the cheeks giving the illusion of having applied a blush! It works great even as a setting powder for foundation and keeps face matte for 4 hours easily.

Catrice Multi Colour Compact Powder

The compact lasts 5 to 6 hours on me after which I require a touch up. The oil-controlling properties are not great, but decent enough and keeps my face shine free for about 4 hours. It does not clog pores, nor has it irritated my skin. Overall, its a fabulous compact and I totally recommend it to everyone!

god parita, you have totally convinced me to do a major catrice haul whenever i can. :D The powder looks fab. i wonder why such concepts never come to us in india. We can atleast be super thankful to have mac here in india. Atleast we can enjoy some uniqueness in cosmetics. :)

Enjoy and I am J. :P
