Catrice: Defining Blush 050 Apropos Apricot

I tested this blush, so now it is time to review it ;D

Before I purchased this one I already had one of this series and was more than satisfied with it because they are longwearing and the color payoff is super good. Even if you choose a lighter color like I did with this peachy one.

The Defining Blushes cost around 3,49 € and contain 5 g. I have the feeling I will never hit the pan because I only use a little bit at a time. Don't stir the brush in the pan because then you have way to much product on your brush ... like I did the first time xD

In the light it shimmers golden and give your cheeks a nice peachy golden glow.


I wasn't able to take a picture which shows the shimmer and the payoff at the same time so the first swatch pic *points up* shows the payoff and the second *points down* the golden shimmer (under sunlight, maybe hard to see under artificial light).

I think you can't go wrong with the Defining Blushes from Catrice. They are cheap and have a good quality.

Maybelline: Color Sensational The Shine 175

A while ago i bought this Maybelline Lipstick in 175 Raspberry Diamonds.

I damaged the packaging because there was sticky tape around the bottom and when I tried to remove it, I removed everything else (namely the silver color on the bottom) with it.


The packaging is really cute and sparkling =D

Well of to the inside...

The color is a red/brown mixed with a bit of pink and has relatively
large glitter particles in it. I made a ton of pictures but i can't seem to catch the real color of it.

It is not opaque but it gives a really nice color to your lips .... and a lot of shine. It do think that it looks a bit like diamond dust because there is a ton of glitter in it but you don't feel the glitter particles much on your lips. This lipstick does not dry out your lips and gives a nice moist feeling and lasts for about 2 hours or so. The Price is around 7 to 10 € (depends on where you buy it).
