I have an Essence and Catrice haul to share with you today. I think most, if not all, of these products are limited edition. Some of them are even holiday releases (I know I’m a bit late). I haven’t tried nearly all of the products yet, but there are some good ones among the ones I have tried.
Let’s begin with Essence. I purchased quite a few items from the Essence x Beauty Benzz Everyday Is A Mystery collection. I picked up the eyeshadow & eyeliner palette in 01 Who Would You Like To Be Today?, the pH-reacting blush stick in 01 We Need More!, the plumping lipgloss in 02 Everyday, and the makeup sponge.
Here’s a closer look at the palette. This is one of the more colourful palettes, I’ve seen from Essence, and I’m excited to try the water activated liners, which is a fun addition to the palette.
Catrice released a holiday collection called Sparks of Joy, which has a very classic red, gold, and shimmery Christmas theme to the packaging. I purchased the nail lacquer in C03 Wrapped In Happiness, the two satin lipsticks in C02 Ruby Kisses For Santa and C01 Red Kisses For Santa, the two blush sticks in C01 All I Want For Christmas Is Red and C02 All I Want For Christmas Is Pink, and the eyeshadow palette in C01 Sparkle & Shine.
This is what the eyeshadow palette looks like. I think the colour story is perfect for Christmas time, but it’ll also be great for autumn. I’m wearing this palette here.
The two lipsticks are a classic red shade (which I’m wearing here) and a dark burgundy shade.
The blush sticks are my favourite products from this haul so far. I really like the formula, and the colours are stunning on the cheeks.
Lastly, I got the Catrice Pearl Glaze pearly eyeshadow & blush palette in C01 Joyful Shimmer Dream. It’s an all shimmer palette, which I like the idea of. It might be a nice companion palette.
