REVIEW | Catrice Cosmetics Nude Illusion Make-Up

Hi guys!!!

Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately. I have been on antibiotics all week which combined with pregnancy is an absolute minus craic. Todays blog post is my review of Catrice Cosmetics Nude Illusion Make-Up. 

So I was in bad need of a new foundation. I had literally scraped the sides of my previous one however with baby on the way I didn't want to spend to much money. I went to my local pharmacy and their in-store makeup artist was all rave about this new foundation from Catrice Cosmetics. She told me it's meant to give the exact same results as Armani Luminous Silk for less than a quarter of the price. That sold it for me and I couldn't wait to get home and try it. I had high hopes and hey it only cost €8.49 so it didn't exactly break the bank if I don't like it. 

I primed my skin using Maybelline Baby Skin and then used my Real Techniques expert face brush to buff on my new makeup. It is dispensed via a pump and has quite a thick consistency but still spreads really really well despite this. It is completely lightweight on your skin and gives medium to full coverage. It gives a gorgeous luminous look to your skin while at the same time being completely matte. I know that sounds a bit contradictory but it really does glow without looking shiny or oily. 

The pictures below were taken by me today to show you all the results. The first one was me and 8:30ish this morning and the second is me at 7pm this evening. Excuse the quality of the photos, I was on the train and was trying to discretely take shameless selfies!!! (Not an easy task)!

8am this morning!

7pm this evening...HELLO WEEKEND!!
As you can see the foundation did not budge. I had literally no time to even look in a mirror I was that busy never mind do touch ups. I am so glad this budget but foundation lived up to my expectations. IF I had to say something negative it would be that the colour selection isn't the best. There is five, maximum six shades to chose from which isn't a lot really. The one I purchased it 030 Nude Beige and I love it. I can't wait to put it on again tomorrow... I'm such a loser!!

You NEED to have this in your life!!!

As always thank you for reading my ramblings and let me know if you have or do try it out. Have a fab weekend guys!!

Love Mel xx
