Review: Catrice Deluxe Trio Eyeshadow 010 Antique C'est Tres Chic

10:38

Hey Beauties!

One of the first product of Catrice's new fall range that I saw, was this trio eyeshadow palette. In hopes of it being good like most of Catrice and Essence baked eyeshadow, I bought it. I chose a very neutral shade.


It costs 4.99 € and you get 2.2 grams. I would say it's not cheap for what it is.

Let's talk about the worst thing first. The packaging. It's plastic and it has a clear lid, which surprisingly opens from the side and not up, like you would expect. I think this is the first fail for Catrice. The lid is too heavy to be carried on only one small side.


That is why my lid already broke off. I was really pissed. Seriously. How am I suppose to carry this now?! The plastic is obviously not good enough and it totally broke off to the point where I can't even fix it. Not to mention that I didn't even properly use it and it already broke. That's a no no Catrice.



On the back you actually have instructions on how to apply these shades. Useful for those that don't pay much attention to makeup application. 


The shades in 010 Antique C'est Tres Chic are white, light peach and chocolate brown. It definitely has a warm feeling, except for the white shade.


I assume the eyeshadows are baked. The pigmentation is in fact very good. They are quit dry to the touch, but you can get a really good pigmentation with one swatch. The more you blend the shades, the more intensity you loose.

All the shades are very pearly with a metallic sheen to them. White and peach are extremely shiny, but without any obvious shimmer in it. The shimmer is really tiny, so that it just gives off that beautiful sheen. Chocolate brown is the only one that has visible gold shimmer particles in it. It's also very gold toned brown. It is less metallic then the first two shades.

I don't find them to bi particularly long lasting, but the lasting power it's also not bad. I would say average.

Because of the metallic sheen I'm not sure if this would be best look for those with really hooded eyes or more mature skin. I would actually prefer the brown shade to be matte, but that's not up to me.


You can see how it looks like when applied. I actually applied it as it says on the back. 





The palette has good pigmentation, but it gets lost if you blend it too much. The shade range is right up my alley, but I dislike that all the shades are shimmery with metallic finish. I like the fact that they don't have any obvious shimmer in it (except for the brown). The packaging is completely off and it may break really quickly. I guess it's a good palette, but it didn't necessarily rocked my boat. For 5€ I would rather buy one of their bigger palettes and probably got more shades and use out of it. Now it's up to you to decide, if this is something you need or not.

  2. Dobra embalaža, so se potrudili :D Mene ti tročki niso pritegnili, čeprav so mi barve v tem še najbolj všeč.
    Krasen mejkap <3

  3. Sej odtenki so lepi ampak mi niso tako svetleči všeč. Ta embalaža pa vidim da je polom, loh bi se vsaj pri tem potrudili.

    1. Meni so se tudi zdeli preveč svetleči za marsikoga. Embalaža pa je res katastrofa. Razumem, da so želeli naredit malo drugače odpiranje, ampak žal ni uspelo. Bi upala, da so vsaj stestirali preden so dali ven. :)

  4. Moram svojo hitro nekam pospravit dokler je še cela :O Drugače so pa zelo lepe barve ampak je mene malo odbilo to da je kar malce preveč metallic.

    1. Jaz jih tudi zaradi tega ne uporabljam toliko, kot sem mislila da bom. Ker odtenki so meni tudi všeč :)

  6. Ojoj, to pa res, da bi lahko za tak denar kupila paletko z večimi odtenki, ampak kaj češ :/ Malo so s tem kiksnili ... So mi pa odtenki zelo všeč, glede na to, da sama po takšnih ves čas posegam, se mi zdi, da mojim očem najbolje pašejo. In kot po navadi, lep mejkap! :)

    1. Imava podoben okus:) Meni so tudi odtenki čisto po mojem okusu, samo skoraj preveč metalik finiš za moj okus.

  7. I saw this in store today, but decided not to pick it up (yet). After reading this review, I don't think I will. I really like the peach shade, but that's about it. I completely understand how you feel about the broken packaging. When something like that happens, especially so fast after purchasing it, I would be very disappointed as well...
    I hope you'll still get some use out of this, the colors do look nice on you! :)

    1. Peach is my favorite too. I mean of course, for the price to fall apart after a few days..yeah, I was not happy. Oh yeah, I will use it every now and then, when I'll have a chance. It just won't travel with me :)
      Thanks Astrid ;)
