You know how much I love Catrice as a brand. I believe this is one of the most innovative affordable brands out there that performs wonderfully and has quite an extensive range of products. This time I decided to do a review on one of my favorite lipstick formulas by Catrice. Moreover, one of the shades has just recently been added to the line so it is even more exciting!
Catrice Luminous Lips Lipstick (€3,99) – is a lipstick with intensive shine and a pampering texture, contains hyaluronic acid and visibly plumps the lips.
Catrice Luminous Lips is a line of lipsticks that range from nudes to brights and deeper shades. The finish can either be sheer or opaque but always shiny and luminous. The line is now presented with 14 shades with three shades being completely new – 150 Into The Maroon Lagoon, 160 Read Me a Cherry Tale and 170 The Wizard Of Orchidz.
Catrice Luminous Lips in 130 Brigitte Loves Bordeaux is a beautiful bright carmine red that even leans crimson red in some lighting. It has a teeny tiny golden and red shimmer that is easily detectable in the stick but translates into a very nice yet barely noticeable golden sheen on the lips.
It is a very easy red to pull off if you are not comfortable with reddish shades. Though, it is distinctively red and is a perfect choice for a very sophisticated look. Due to the formula that is a bit on the slippery side and reminds me more of a lip balm rather than of a lipstick – you can easily vary the intensity of application. On the photo above the lipstick is intensely applied but you can get away with a single layer for a more natural effect. I’ve also applied it without a liner but I would suggest you use one because it can smear a bit. It lasts for about 2-3 hours one my lips before it starts fading. The wear time is limited because of a creamy-balmy consistency all these lipsticks have. At the same time it is quite hydrating and comfortable to wear.
Catrice Luminous Lips in 080 Don’t Mind The Pink is a neon coral pink shade with no shimmer or glitter in it. The finish is very glossy as if you applied a lip gloss and not at all sparkly as it is with the lipstick shown above.
This is a truly beautiful shade! It screams summer to me and I see myself wearing it quite often this season. It has exactly the same wear time characteristics as the previous lipstick but it does not require a lip liner underneath as the color is quite forgiving. You may see it setting into lip lines a bit but it is not noticeable in the real life.
Catrice Luminous Lips in 150 Into The Maroon Lagoon is a deep burgundy red shade. It has a very creamy consistency with no shimmer. The finish is also creamy/glossy.
This particular shade is a new addition to the line. It also has the same wear time and application characteristics as the Brigitte Loves Bordeaux. I would also strongly advise using a lip liner with this shade to avoid any smearing that may occur. I consider this color to be a perfect autumn lipstick when deeper maroon shades are especially popular.
Overall, I personally really like the Luminous Lips line by Catrice. These lipsticks are a lip gloss and a lip balm combined in a lipstick that makes it quite unique. The range is presented with a very nice variety of shades and it is being extended every seasons with limited-edition shades being released thought the year.
I really enjoy wearing the shades shown above with the Don’t Mind The Pink being my favorite. By the way, I do not actually mind the limited wear time (from 2 to 3 hours) that occurs due to hydrating properties these lipsticks have. All these lipsticks feel very balmy on the lips and leave my lips soft, supple and hydrated.
If you haven’t tried Catrice Luminous Lipsticks yet – I strongly advise to give these a go. This is definitely my favorite formula from the brand. If you prefer your lipstick to be hydrating and to take care of your lips and if you do not mind reapplying it from time to time (or leaving it as it is) – then you should definitely try it!
Thank you very much for your attention.
Have an amazing day!
