When a Budget Buy Does Good

Catrice liquid camoflauge concealer review

Catrice is a brand I never took too seriously. They are remarkably inexpensive and haven't been on my radar for that long, so I was naturally a little flippant about them. But when I started seeing some great reviews about their new Liquid Camouflage Concealer and how good it was, I went from apathetic to active stalker in a matter of seconds. I had to try it and see if it would work for me. And after finally finding it I can say it does!

I have to admit I was a little confused when I bought this. The name "Liquid Camouflage" to me suggests that it would be very heavy duty and offered some serious coverage. In fact, I think it even says it covers tattoos! But it ain't that. Instead, it's your typical doe-foot applicator liquid concealer akin to the Rimmel Wake Me Up or The Collection Lasting Perfection. And that's not a bad thing. I love concealers like this, especially when mixed with a high coverage, thick one such as my Amazing Cosmetics concealer. 

And when used atop a heavier concealer, this one is a champ. It blends and mixes with other concealers so easily as it's so creamy and silky feeling. I'd say the coverage is medium so it does amp up my correcting concealer and makes everything look a little less dark. It sets to a satin-ish finish, but still looks brightening and not flat at all. And creasing is minimal which is always a nice bonus. I also think this would be a good one for blemishes. I haven't really used it for that, but I think it would cover well and stick around. 

Even though I think the formula is great, the shade range can only be described as abysmal. I think there are three shades available and all are quite pale. That is great for girls like me, who are fair, but everyone else has no hope of finding a match which is a shame. 

Pale girls looking for a really affordable good concealer (it's only €3.99!) I think this is one to try. It covers well, is a lovely texture and is perfect for undereye dark circles. I've consistently used it every day since I bought it and I have to say it's a firm favourite right now. I love it when a cheap buy works out!
