Catrice is a low-end german brand. It is very interesting what refers their pricing policy. And the quality is surprisingly good, they have a couple of products that are worth mentioning. Today I will review their lipsticks. They have 2 lines: Ultimate Shine and Ultimate Colour.  I chose 2 shades that of popular dark red winish colours. So here is my review for Catrice Ultimate Shine in 170 Play the Plum and Catrice Ultimate Colour in 110 Pink Me Up!

My opinion:

Packaging and design: 10 out of 10.

The packaging is surprisingly good. I mean, it is not of cheap kind of plastic that will break into pieces in a week. It is solid and quite heavy. The difference is in the colour of packaging.  Ultimate Shine lipsticks come in silver and Ultimate Colour are in black.

Ultimate Shine: 9 out of 10.

These lipsticks are very opaque, reasonably dry. The pigmentation is very well. It doesn’t dry my lips out. But it does stay in place for a long time.

Ultimate Colour: 7.5 out of 10.

These lipsticks are fatter and you need to wear them with a lip pencil. Otherwise it might lose its contour in a couple of hours. It doesn’t dry my lips out and it comfortable to wear. It is opaque in 1 coat.

Ultimate Shine: 10 out of 10.

170 Play The Plum is quite dark, bordeau red with a purple touch. It makes me think of red wine.

Ultimate Colour: 10 out of 10.

110 Pink Me Up! is warm enough not to contrast with my facial undertone. It is pinkish red, makes me think of red berries.

Overall opinion:

I am very happy with these lipsticks. They are easy to apply, comfortable to wear, stay in place well. There is something to choose from what refers to the shades. Great quality-price deal!

Price for Ultimate Shine lipsticks: 3,99 euro for 3,5 grams.

Price for Ultimate Colour lipsticks: 3,99 euro for 3,8 grams.

Overall mark: 8.5 out of 10.
