In the Summer months I like my makeup to be two things, golden and highlighted. Nothing quite screams Summer than Sun Kissed dewy skin. Catrice have launched their newest collection Soleil d’été. As we are edging our way every so keenly to the end of the Summer months, this collection reminds me of the Spanish golden hour. From the chic gold packaging to the bronzed interior.
Metal Infused Eye Palette 5.99
Five shades ranging from matte to metallic with a powdery texture. A combination of neutral to pastel shades. This selection of shades make it easy to create golden eyes with ease. To add a little bit of sparkle for a night time look, I like to add the pink shades that are infused with a sprinkle of glitter to the center of my eye. I love how this keeps my eye makeup bright whilst also adding a little vavavoom! This palette is easy to take you from a simple daytime look right to a glam night time look. The gold and black case is a beautiful combination. It is simply perfection. With a large fitted mirror on the inside making it perfect to keep in your handbag or when travelling.
Metal Eyelight 4.50
Little pots of golden gel like eyeshadow have rocked my world! With a metallic finish they are super easy to blend and can be intensified by applying more layers. I love how smoothly, this gel eyeshadow applies. No lumps or bumps – it just coats over your eyelids effortlessly for a professional finish.
Sun Stripping Bronzer 4.95
I love how matte this bronzer powder is, making is super versatile. This makes it perfect for contouring, to swirl over your face for a bronzed finish or I also like to dust this powder under my collarbones, down my arms and legs.
Golden Lip Booster. 4.50
This golden gloss can be worn on it’s own or over your favourite lipstick. This metallic gloss is infused with a lip boosting effect. Once applied the peppermint will create a tingly feeling on your lips adding a little oomph to your lips. This beautiful gloss did not leave my lips feeling sticky. One coat was enough to leave my lips feeling extremely smooth and hydrated with a subtle shiny gold finish.
*** Top Tip ***
If you have a matte lipstick that is too drying on your lips. Apply this Golden lip Booster to your lips first. Once dried it acts like a protective hydrating coat that prevents liquid lipstick from becoming too dry.
Metalip Colour 4.50
This has become my go to neutral shade. I have been wearing shade Meet Metal C02. This is a soft nude lip shade with rose pink undertones. A high coverage meet upon a pleasant cream texture. It glides onto my lips very easily. I found this to be extremely comfortable to wear. The golden lipstick tube is a winner for me. It feels and looks every inch of a luxury product. Whether I am pulling it out of my handbag or it sits proudly on my makeup table, it demands attention.
