When I found out Catrice was readily available in the Netherlands, I was ecstatic. I've read and watched multiple rave reviews for their products and have been lemming over their blushes and eyeshadows for a number of months. However, so far I've only picked up two of their Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows to play with. I found both of these for €1 each and could not pass them up! These regularly retail for less than €4 so they are definitely a beauty bargain.
Each shadow is housed in a sturdy glass container with a secure plastic screw top lid. The design is functional and good quality. There is a nice amount of 5 grams in each pot which is the same amount in a Mac paint pot, for reference.
These cream shadows have somewhat unique names and were part of a limited edition collection as they do not seem to be on the website under the permanent items. Metall of Honor is a bronze brown and Romans Gone Bad is a gray taupe.
Metall of Honor is a shade that would look especially stunning on warmer skin tones. The shadows are easily sheered out and can be built up for an opaque look. This shade all over the eyelid with black pencil liner smudged around the eye would make a super easy and sultry smokey eye.
Romans Gone Bad is a must for any cool toned taupe lover. As much as I love taupes, the silver toned ones don't seem to work as well on my skin tone but I'm still glad I have this in my collection. There is a hint of brown in this taupe and the lighting changes how the shade comes across. This would also be a great one shadow eye look as it looks darker in the crease and shaded areas of the eye.
The Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows are a winner in my book due to the easy to wear yet interesting shades and pretty price point. The formula is akin to other cream shadows I have tried such as Benefit's creaseless cream shadows and Maybelline's color tattoo. If you can locate a Catrice retailer, definitely pick up one or two of these shadows!
