Catrice TREND ALERT – Statement Eyeliner

A sleek black line is the key to every sophisticated beauty look and SS17 saw the statement eyeliner trend take centre stage on couture catwalks. Fashion houses such as Fendi, Chloé and Kenzo are among those to have embraced various liner trends and in keeping with the latest fashion trends, Catrice has a great range of new additions to help you get the look.

A lined eye is timeless and can complete any look. Whether it’s a smart defined look you are after, a smokey smudged line or something a little more daring, Catrice Cosmetics has got you covered!

Here are a few of our must-have products, available from Penneys stores and pharmacies nationwide now!

Catrice Eye‘Matic Dip Liner Waterproof 010, €3.70

For a lasting liquid line the Eye’Matic Dip Liner is the ultimate must-have with its short drying time and durability. This liner is the go-to for on the go application with the slim, accurate tip of the brush allowing simple and clean application. The deep black texture means the line won’t fade throughout the day or night so there is no need to re-apply.

A ‘top tip’ from Catrice – Those who find creating accurate eyeliner styles difficult may find it easier to apply individual dots along the lashline and then connect them starting from the inner corner of the eye and moving outwards. Small mishaps can easily be removed using a tapered cotton bud.
Catrice Glam & Doll Super Black Liner 010, €3.50

Take inspiration from Fendi’s SS17 show where Gigi Hadid rocked the runway with a feline flicked liner! Catrice have taken the stress out of achieving the perfect ‘feline flick ‘with the Glam & Doll Super Black Liner.

Created for beginners, the flexible felt-tip in a tulip shape allows an easy application of slim or broad eyeliner styles. The liquid is highly pigmented which means an intense look can be easily achieved. 

Catrice Liquid Gel Cushion Eye Liner 010, €4.95

This Catrice innovation revolutionises the application of eyeliner! The cushion inside the tub is soaked with the highly pigmented, feathery light liquid texture. It is best to apply the long lasting formula with a flat, slanted or tapered eyeliner brush. Simply press the brush into the cushion soaked with the liquid and it will absorb just the right amount of the product. To achieve a more daring smudged ‘smokey look’ as seen in both Chloé’s and Kenzo’s SS17 shows, take a blending brush and smoke the line outwards.
Embrace the feline flick with Catrice – available from Penneys stores and pharmacies nationwide now!

Giorgio Armani Cruise Collection

LIFE IS A CRUISE is the spirit of a private yacht summer cruise on the Mediterranean. 

Presented in a two-part series, LIFE IS A CRUISE focuses first on the face, glowing with sun-drenched colors. Episode two will bring out the eyes with the colors of a beautiful summer’s night.

For its new LIFE IS A CRUISE FACE collection, Giorgio Armani has once again drawn inspiration from the light of the Mediterranean sun to warm and enhance the skin.

This collection features summer makeup that can be worn all year long to bring a natural looking glow to any skin tone, for that “just back from holiday” look. With a three-product routine suited for all skin tones, the skin is heightened with warm, natural colors like those of the sun. 

The ritual features two star products and one new product:

– MAESTRO UV SKIN DEFENSE PRIMER SFP50 preserves and protects the skin against UV rays.

– MAESTRO LIQUID SUMMER BRONZER, with its legendary ultra-light formula, recreates the perfect sun-kissed glow.

– The new SUNRISE PALETTE flatters all skin tones with warm, natural colors.




MAESTRO UV SKIN DEFENSE PRIMER SPF 50 protects the skin at all times. This liquid primer combines high UV protection with an antioxidant action, enveloping the skin in a protective veil. Its lightweight texture appears to vanish without a trace and is undetectable. 


MAESTRO LIQUID SUMMER BRONZER creates an amazingly natural-looking summer glow with flawless facial contours. Infused with micro-spheres, MAESTRO LIQUID SUMMER BRONZER boasts a silky weightless texture, as soft and airy as a powder. It lets the skin breathe and gives it a sheer glow. Three warm and luminous shades, N°090, N°100 and°110, adapt to all skin tones. Apply MAESTRO LIQUID SUMMER BRONZER over the entire face or in touches from the cheeks to the temples for a natural summer glow. A single drop is enough to revive the complexion.

The SUNRISE PALETTE bronzing powder flatters every skin tones with a warm, radiant tan, for a natural Mediterranean glow. More than just a powder, the limited-edition SUNRISE PALETTE boasts a creamy texture that glides on the skin with the stunning coverage provided by pure pigments. A simple brushstroke dresses the complexion with the warm, beautiful colors of a day out on a yacht.
The SUNRISE PALETTE is embossed with a wave just like light reflecting on the water. To be used alone or in a three-step routine, during the summer or all year round, LIFE IS A CRUISE FACE provides skin with a glowy summer tan and has a flawless hold.

Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Make-Up Artist

“Traditional bronzing products are usually way too grey or orange and always look fake and cheap. Inspired by Mr. Armani’s magnificent yacht, Main, I created the perfect bronzing collection for a flawless natural looking tan. For the first time, Giorgio Armani Beauty offers a collection that recreates the “just disembarked from your yacht” healthy tanned glow.”


Giorgio Armani Life Is a Cruise Collection will be available exclusively at Brown Thomas Dublin, Cork & Limerick or www.brownthomas.com from April 2017.

Kiehl’s chemists proudly introduce Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, a 99.6% naturally-derived formula that is the first of its kind to leverage the combined efficacy of two world-renowned wellness

ingredients – New Zealand Manuka Honey and Korean Red Ginseng Root. While cocooning the skin in a comforting and nourishing texture, this breakthrough moisturizer helps skin resist hydration loss[4]

while also aiding in recovery from existing skin damage. In a clinical test[5], skin’s radiance and glow improved by 41.8% while skin’s texture and smoothness improved by 39.7%.


To assess the advanced efficacy of their new formula, Kiehl’s chemists solicited an unprecedented

“Healthy Skin Torture Test.” In the study, a Healthy Skin Panel of women ages 20 to 30 (Control) were assessed for skin radiance, smoothness and softness, while a Less Healthy Skin Panel of women ages 35 to 49 (Treated with Pure Vitality) were tested for the same attributes before and after use of Kiehl’s new formula. After 8 weeks of using Pure Vitality Skin Renewing Cream, the Less Healthy Skin panel demonstrated clinical scores that were either on par[6] with or surpassed[7] the Healthy Skin Panel.


  • Smoothes Texture
  • Renews Radiance
  • Helps Stimulate Skin Cell Renewal



Manuka Honey is sustainably harvested in New Zealand.

Manuka Honey is a dark, creamy mono-floral honey is valued in medicine for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and ability to treat skin wounds, even post surgery[9]. Compared to any other form of honey, it has the highest polyphenol level and anti-oxidant activity[10], which help to protect the skin from oxidative damage such as pollution and UV. It is also known to stimulate collagen producing fibroblasts and keratinocytes, helping repair damage and maintain skin barrier hydration due to its high sugar content and 4x more minerals than any other honey[11].  


Prior to formulation, Kiehl’s chemists tested the ingredient in a neutral base to evaluate its capacity to accelerate skin barrier recovery by reducing TEWL[12] vs. control site. After 2 hours TEWL decreased by 70.07% on the treated site vs 57.08% untreated[13] demonstrating the superior ability of this ingredient to maintain skin barrier.



Red Ginseng Root is sourced from Korea and is a botanical used in Asian beauty regimes.

  • skin’s radiance and glow
  • Helps stimulate surface skin cell renewal for smoother-feeling skin
  • Enhances a youthful-looking softness

Korean Red Ginseng Root has been linked to stimulation and protection of the cellular energy pathways that begin to malfunction or slow down over time. This highly potent form of ginseng protects the cell’s mitochondria from oxidative stress and increases the production of energy-related molecules and pathways[15].
