Review: Catrice Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish (040 Let's Red Loud!)

21:13

Hey Beauties!

Since seeing the new Catrice range, I had my wishlist on the phone. Unfortunately, I didn't get all the products, because some where already gone by the time I got to the stand. No worries, they're here to stay. I did want to try their new lip polishes. Of course I got red shade, again. I know, I need to step out of beiges and reds... 


Catrice says that this lip polish is supposed to have the color of lipstick, longevity of a stain and shiny finish of a lipgloss. 

A lot of promises. Well, starting with the obvious, packaging. Plastic, like any other lip gloss. The applicator is a sponge in the form of a petal. Reminds me of the L'Oreal lip glosses, I think they have the same applicator. It's nice because most of the product comes out in the bottom of the applicator and it is easy to spread it around the lips. The point at the end is also great for getting into little corners of lips. 



It contains 6 ml of product and costs 5.19€. Now, am I crazy, or the prices are going up with Catrice products? I don't particularly like that, since I don't see a big difference in the quality, which would justify this.

On to the product itself. The shade is red with a certain pink undertone. It's not a typical red. I like the multi-dimensional shades. It's called 040 Let's Red Loud! and I immediately start singing J.Lo's song let's get loud :). The product applies nicely. Now I've put it on about three times and every time I feel a little sting. I don't like that and I don't know if it's just me. I admit my lips are a bit chapped and dry in this time of year, so I can't objectively define what is the cause of that stinging feeling. I don't like it. It looks extremely glossy. It's one of those things...glossy red lip gloss..kind of screams overdone for a day look in my opinion. Let's just say the lips look overly inviting sexy. But definitely nice for a night time look. 

Thin coat
Thicker coat
I think that the color is not evenly transferred around the entire surface of the lips. If you have dry patches - it's done! Sticks on those and it's just not a pretty look. I expected it to be more pigmented, don't now why. It's a lot sheerer than I expected. If you apply thicker coat or more, you can intensify the color. It's pretty sticky and does stay on for a long time. I was also surprised that it stays glossy for as long as it stays on the lips. You will need to reapply this after a while and it definitely won't survive a meal or a kiss. The thing I also don't like is that it starts to bleed out of the lips along the lines - as seen in the photo below. But I guess that's to be expected in a way, since it is a lip gloss. It also leaves a pretty heavy stain on the lips, which looks even if you blot it down and you can wear it just as a stain. Not a fan of the smell. Out of the packaging smells very artificial on the lips kind of nothing special or intense. 

Bleeding of the product
Stain that it leaves

To conclude: I like the color, it is glossy, it does leave a stain, but it's definitely not as long lasting as a lipstick. I hate the stinging feeling and think it's a bit overpriced.

  1. Jaz mam tud wishlist na telefonu :D
    Prekrasna barva, sem jo že gledala v Müllerju, ampak meni tile staini niso všeč ker se mi obarva samo en del ustnic in potem izgleda kot da sem pila kri. Se mi zdi boljše če bi namesto teh raje naredili mat linijo.

    1. Hehe:) Ja jaz tudi nisem preveč navdušena. Mogoče bo boljši preko kakšne šminke:) Se strinjam, mat bi bilo super, glede na to, da je itak malo takih na našem trgu:)

    1. They are. But I expected more. I guess it's more of a lip gloss with a stain:)

  3. Mene je cena tudi malo presenetila, verjetno so mislili, da bodo zelo popularni izdelki in zato lahko malo dvignejo ceno. Je pa tale barva zelo lepa. Mi je pa zanimivo, kako enakomeren stain ti je pustila (zadnja fotka). Moj definitivno ni izgledal tako lepo.

    1. Ja mogoče pa res. Ampak vseeno se mi zdi nekako precenjeno. No ta stain je drugače popivnan z robčkom, drugače dvomim, da bi bil tako popoln:))

  4. Lepa barva, ampak po oceni sodeč, je ne rabim in je ne bi imela ;) Pa že tako imam preveč šmink!

  5. Čudovita barva <3 samo po tvojem review-ju nisem ravno navdušena, je polno stvari ki me načeloma moti pri izdelkih za ustnice tako da dvomim da me bo premamilo kupiti :/

  7. Je malo čudno da so tako dvignili cene, že pri lakih. Drugače pa super fotke, škoda le da je tako glossy finiš, mene osebno naredi malo živčno in paranoično :D

    1. Izgleda, da bodo počasi vse cene dvignili:/. Ta glossy finiš je res out there, pa še z tem odtenkom:)

  8. Aha! Nisem edina, jaz sem tudi stala pri stojalu pa gledam kako so cene nekam poskočile. Btw ali je mat podlaga že skoz skoraj 7 €? To je skoraj malo too much, čeprav je dobra. Ampak dam še kak € zraven in dobim boljšo.

    Drugače pa super ocena!! Hvala za njo, sedaj me ne mikajo več tako zelo. Tale glossy efekt mi ni čisto nič pri srcu, mi je pa všeč "madež", ki ga pusti :) Sem čudna ane? Ampak mi je res lepe barve :)

    1. Mislim, da je podlaga 7€ ja. Se strinjam s tabo! :) Sem jo kupila dva tedna nazaj in ugotovila, da je pretemna zato zdaj počiva v predalu do poletja:) Žalostno..ker znamka si ne bo več pridobila priljubljenosti. Bolj kot ne je priljubljena ravno zaradi tega, ker je tako poceni.
      No saj če ti je samo madež všeč, potem ti proporočam kak stain:) Mislim, da ima Catrice tudi neke:)

  9. Barva je lepa! <3 Mene so tile kar mikali ampak sem rekla, da bom počakala na ocene, da vidim če se mi splača kakšnega kupit, ker sem po novem letu začela malo bolj intenzivno šparati eurčke :) Vidim, da nič ne zamujam tako da najbrž noben odtenek ne bo pristal pri meni.
