This was part of my swap with Sara and she’s a huge fan of Catrice’s lipsticks so I was really excited to try it out. I’ve seen Catrice before when I was in Europe, but I’ve only ever picked up their nail polishes. Now that Essence, Catrice’s sister brand is in Singapore, perhaps Catrice will make an appearance one day?

This was no. 11 on Sara’s list and the packaging is a sleek mirrored silver.

Sara included several Catrice lipsticks in our swap, and the first one I picked up to try was Ultimate Shine 050 Simply Rosewood.

Simply Rosewood is a rosey-mauve nude shade that is perfect for my everyday office wear needs.

The lipstick is soft and creamy with just the right amount of pigmentation and shine that still looks natural. It was quite moisturising and my lips didn’t feel dry with it on, even without lip balm underneath. Probably due to the creamy and moisturising formula, it only lasts about 2 hours each application and tends to transfer quite a bit if you drink out of a cup/mug.

For the affordable price in Europe, Catrice is an awesome drugstore brand to check out!
