Review ~ Catrice Absolute Rose Palette

I have always loved the look of the different eyeshadow palettes. I could actually look at them all day. And with Urban Decay’s many naked palettes the only option is to set out and buy some. Now I have a few for my artist kit, but only one for personal use (from Inglot). I saw on Pink Peonies the beautiful LA Girl Nude Beauty Brick and I rushed out to Dischem to go buy one, but alas my luck was not in.  They had none so I decided to buy the Absolute Rose Palette from Catrice.


A beautiful palette consisting of 6 light and dark rose coloured eyeshadows. From the Catrice website, “Soft nudes and trendy rose shades – sometimes matte and sometimes shimmering – create a beautiful natural look no matter whether they are used solo or as a team. The supple texture convinces with a high colour-dispersion and thanks to the integrated brush, this set is also a practical travel companion.”


The quality of the product is good but the pigment doesn’t do it for me. I had to apply the light colours countless amount of times before I got a good coverage. The packaging is sturdy and the clip closes so it wont open in your makeup bag, which is a bonus. The little brush is not that bad for on the road touch ups.

Main Benefit

I love the soft pink colours and the dark shade. The dark plum blends really well once applied. I must say the product really does melt onto the eye. Very blend able.

Ease of use

The darker colours are easy to use and blend well. I did struggle with the lighter colours though.

Who would the product suit

This product will suit anyone who loves the neutral palette and wants to try a soft smokey look. I would also recommend it for someone who doesn’t have the money to but the Urban Decay palettes but I would recommend an eyeshadow primer first.


Easy to blend
Sturdy packaging


The eyeshadows are not very pigmented.
