Review ~ Catrice Re-Touch Light Reflecting Concealer

Is it just me or does South Africa seriously lack in the “concealer” arena? I know we have M.A.C and all the other elite brands, but I am talking about the in the drugstore brands for the budget friendly girl. I have purchased some from certain brands and to say they didn’t live up to standard is an understatement. They are either too thin or fade away before the morning is over. When I picked up the Catrice Re-touch Light Reflecting concealer, I was pretty skeptical.



Feature

Catrice say “The ultimate creamy, light concealer for radiant eyes and a fresh appearance: light-reflecting pigments and medium coverage combined with moisturizing ingredients hide shadows under your eyes and other small imperfections in no time at all. Its gentle texture feels pleasant on the sensitive skin around your eyes.”

Quality

This product feels like superb quality when you hold the packaging in your hand. It is sturdy and easy to use. Once opened the product has a rich creamy consistency. It applies easily with its brush applicator.  


Main Benefit

This product definitely covers dark marks and circles. There is also no creasing and for even longer wear, I recommend that you set it with a powder and a small brush.

Ease of use

With its brush applicator the product is a breeze to apply. Initially it does take a few twists of the pen to get the product out, but after that only one twist gives you more than enough product.


Who would the product suit

This product would suit anyone who has dark circles under the eyes and also dark marks. It is also great for the budget friendly girl.

Pros

Easy to apply
Rich consistency
Once set with powder doesn’t move.


Cons

Only thing is getting the product out initially. Other than that this product is amazing.
