It wasn't a good sign when I opened my ULTA box (purchased months ago)
and saw the Catrice Cosmetics Absolute Rose & Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palettes
I ordered. Why you say? It was a powdery MESS! I know packages go
through hell during the shipping process, but these were really messy! I
wiped them off, prayed for the best and finally swatched them the other day. They are
POWDERY! First of all, I ended up with more eye shadow on my clothes
than hands (can you imagine applying these to your eyelids --> MAJOR
FALL OUT). Secondly, I had to swipe and swipe and swipe (yes, that's 3
swipes) just to achieve the color you see on the back of my hands below.
Then, I had to blow off the excess! I'm chucking these. Into the trash they go! This was my first time
trying the brand Catrice. Have you tried any of their products? They're
cheap, but other cheap brands don't have this kind of problem. I was not a happy camper about these. I'm just glad I purchased them on sale.
