Essence and Catrice New Collections In Store Now!

Hi Ladies

As you all know by now I am a huge Essence and Catrice fan. As much as I love MAC limited edition products I just can’t help myself when a new Essence or Catrice Limited Edition Launches. The price, the quality and the packaging gets me every time!

Catrice and Essence both have new launches just in time for spring! We are only about 2 months behind with the launch of these collections… Winning!

Catrice- Kaviar Gauche


Soft pastel shades and contrasting grey are an ideal match for the internationally renowned Bridal Couture by Kaviar Gauche, which stands for its light, avant-garde look and modern romanticism. The packaging with a floral lace design turns all of the products into the beauty must-haves of 2015. Forever starts here – by CATRICE.


Gilding Eye and Face Palette – Love. Six eyeshadows in delicate powder shades, including a light lilac and feminine pink as well as contrasting grey with a warm undertone, create a natural-looking eye make-up look with a glow. Some matt, some shimmering, the eyeshadows can be applied and blended with the included applicator. Applied on the waterline and the inner corner of your eyes, the white eyeliner makes your eyes look bigger. On top, the palette contains a light as well as a dark contouring powder to emphasize your facial features, and the white packaging with a golden, floral lace design is a true highlight in itself. R140.95

Blurring Powder Pearls – Beautifying. The gorgeous powder pearls in light nude and pastel shades aren’t just lovely to look at, they are on a mission of beauty, too. Applied with a large brush, they make your skin look wonderfully smooth. Light-reflecting pigments ensure a flawless complexion with a glow. And the transparent container with a decorative lid is a real gem on the dressing table. Available in C01 Sweet Secret. R79.95

How pretty! Obviously I grabbed myself one of these!

Gentle Lip Gloss – I do! Give your lips a touch of colour and a beautiful shine with the Gentle Lip Gloss when you whisper “I do”. The lipgloss is available in soft pink or apricot and has a light, transparent texture. For a glossy, natural look that radiates an air of lightness. Available in C01 Butterfly Kiss and C02 Honey Blossom. R61.95

Nail Lacquer – It’s a promise. Light pink, soft lilac, pastel apricot and warm grey – in addition to ultimate shine and durability, these nail polishes offer a romantic and modern range of colours. Warm grey provides a beautiful contrast in the otherwise extremely delicate and feminine collection. Available in C01 Butterfly Kiss, C02 Honey Blossom, C03 Love Me tender and C04 Cool Wonder. R52.95


Essence- Nauti Girl

Plenty of beauty treasures are on board, including four nail polishes, two long-lasting lipsticks and a blush in bright apricot-red with an anchor embossment. The ultimate highlight is the waterproof eye pencil in cool blue with an integrated sharpener in the lid. The limited, fruity-aquatic fragrance ensures a wonderfully scented breeze on your skin. Sail away… with essence!”

(For some reason we only have the blue eyeshadow palette here, and we didn’t get the little makeup bag either)
