It’s been exactly one month since I last wrote a first impressions post, and this time I tested and wrote down my first impressions of the Catrice HD Liquid Coverage foundation.
In this first picture I’m only wearing a primer (e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer) and the foundation. The applicator is a pipette/droplet applicator, which I don’t like; it’s quite messy. I’m wearing the shade 005 Ivory Beige, and it’s a little dark on me, even though it’s the second to lightest shade, but I can make it work. The foundation is full coverage and it has a matte finish (as it claims), but it doesn’t look dry on the skin; my natural oils shine through a little bit, which I don’t mind. It has a pretty strong scent to it, which I’m not the biggest fan of, but I don’t find that it lingers for too long.
In the picture above, I’m also wearing concealer (L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer) and powder (Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana + Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying powder in 021 Transparent), which looked nice on top of the foundation, and I also think it helped a bit with the shade match. The foundation claims to last up to 24 hours, however I only wore it for 9 hours. It looked pretty much the same right before I removed it as when I applied it; my skin was still matte but not dry looking. The foundation was very easy to remove with micellar water, and overall I really like this foundation, and I’ve since purchased the lightest shade to see if it’s a better match.
