I would like to start my Catrice week of the new Spring Summer 2015 products with one of my favorites: the Catrice Absolute ROSE Eyeshadow Palette. Some of you might not have noticed it’s real name which is 010 Frankie Rose To Hollywood. It is the last of now four eyeshadow palettes that Catrice came out with: MATT, NUDE, BRIGHT and now comes ROSE.
This palette has reatial price of 4,99 € combines six beautiful rose tones including shimmery and matt tones from light to dark. And just because palettes are so practical, and rose colors look good on any skin tone, you gotta love this one!
I also own the NUDE and the MATTE palettes by Catrice and use them almost every day for my daily makeup, so this rose palette complements the other two perfectly. I would recommend using an eyeshadow base so the pigments will last longer and come out better on your eyelid.
So here are the swatches on my hand:
You can see the matte and shimmery colors (from left to right):
- a pastell (almost white pink), perfect for highliting
- a shimmery light rose with a suble golden shimmer
- a middle rose tone with a copper shimmer
- a warm taupe with a suble shimmer
- a darker matte grey, perfect for shading
- and a dark, almost black burgundy with a rose shimmer
Here you see what the eyeshadows look like after using a eyeshadow brush in them:
Three of the colors are less solid and crumble more, but I feel like for this price the quality and pigmentation is really good and solid for daily use.
I can recommend these two eyeshadow base products for a better and longer lasting result:
