I’ve always loved Catrice, the bigger sister of Essence offers products in slightly better packaging and a variety aimed at older women. Catrice is still substantially cheaper than most drugstore products we have here in South Africa and the quality always rivals competitors. I’ve been playing around with a few products recently and I’ve started to fall in love again.
The Catrice Velvet Matt eyeshadow singles are awesome. These dome eyeshadows seem to come packed with quite a bit of product and are densely pigmented. I absolutely love 040 Al Burgandy and I’ve been using 010 Vanillity as a highlighter. If your skin is light enough, you can probably use it to highlight your cheekbones too. Just apply a small amount on your cheekbone and you’re ready to go.
Get these eyeshadows at Dischem, Takealot or Kalahari at around R70 each.
