The Warm Weather Go-To: Catrice Defining Blush in Love & Peach
Continuing with the Catrice defining blush reviews comes Love & Peach, one of the more summery shades out of the six permanent shades available. I have already reviewed Rose Royce and Toffee Fairy. Looking back, I realize I probably should have swatched and reviewed all the shades together as the quality is consistently great. But alas, I will write my praises again for this shade.
As a recap, Catrice is a drugstore German brand that is available in the Netherlands at Kruidvat and various other retailers around Europe. I spotted a Catrice display at a Guardian in Singapore so other countries have limited access to the brand as well. Unfortunately for Americans, the brand is not readily available. The packaging for the blushes is a sturdy clear plastic which is reminiscent of Shu Uemura's packaging. The retail price is a bit under €4 for 5 grams of product, which is very reasonable and made it irresistible for me to collect all six shades.
Love & Peach is a bright, matte coral that is perfect for sunkissed skin. Those with lighter complexions may want to use a light hand to achieve a more natural flush. Like all of the other Catrice blushes, Love & Peach is soft, smooth and pigmented without being powdery or crumbly. Love & Peach makes a lovely statement cheek color and I think it's one that many will enjoy in the spring and summer months.
The only downfall of this product, as with all other Catrice products, is the limited availability. If you are able to get your hands on Catrice, I highly recommend the blushes!
