Nourishing Summer Beauty with CATRICE COSMETICS

While we hope the summer sun stays around, it can really take its toll on our bodies. Exposure to harmful UV rays and heat dehydrates the body and can lead to noticeably dry skin, hair, lips and nails. This calls for a little TLC from Catrice Cosmetics!

Summer is best time to embrace that au-natural glow – nourish, revitalise and achieve this healthy look with some essentials from Catrice Cosmetics, available from Penneys stores and pharmacies nationwide now.

Here are just a few nourishing summer beauty essentials by Catrice:

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!

I’m Loving these lip cushion powders from Catrice

I’ve been trying out lots of new products lately, tan, skin care and make up and I am loving these cushion powder lips from CATRICE. 

The pigment is really good as you can see by my swatches and they lasted on my lips for a good 6-7 hours leaving a hint of colour behind but without the dryness and cakiness I have experienced with matte lip products. 

These are cleverly designed with a spongy type applicator (cushion) which you can dab onto your lips to give your lips instant colour without looking too overly made up. 

Comparing to normal lipsticks, there is no comparison. These give your lips a stain, bitten look, and it’s so gorgeous for summer when you don’t want to be worrying about your lipstick moving,bleeding or smearing when you eat or drink. These babies stay put and are imperfectly perfect for a look which says I do not look overly done up.

To get these gorgeous cushion powder lips from Catrice head to your local Penneys or pharmacy now, you won’t be sorry I promise 💋💄❤️

The eyeshadow palette CO1 EYEconic straps contains four shades that suit anyone and any occasion. Silky and smooth texture with different effects. Three frosted shadows and one satin(brown).

I’m loving the colour of this nail polish, it’s called Garden View, a pretty it would suit any skin tone and it has a matt effect so it makes it that bit more edgy and elegant at the same time.

I can’t wait to try these beauties out 💄💋❤️🌟


Taking inspiration from the recent Golden Globes Awards and looking forward to a busy awards season including February’s BAFTAs and Oscars, Catrice Cosmetics brings you a selection of new season SS17 arrivals to help you recreate some of the top looks from the red carpet.Make sure you are camera ready whatever the occasion with a little help from the Catrice Spring Summer ’17 collection, available from pharmacies nationwide and Penneys stores from February.  
Skin Deep
Flawless skin remains the basis of any statement look on the red carpet. This season, Catrice’s new Face arrivals focus on high-performance, long-lasting makeup that deliver a flawless finish. The new 24H Made to Stay Makeup, €7.90 is a waterproof liquid foundation, enriched with an antioxidant complex, which leaves skin silky smooth with a matt finish. The velvet-like 18H Made to Stay Powder, €4.95 delivers a natural looking matt finish to ensure you are camera ready at all turns. The powder texture absorbs excess oils making this great for oily skin.

Statement Lip

Actors Brie Larson and Lily Collins stunned on the Golden Globes red carpet with their classic Hollywood looks of soft eyes and dramatic lips, which we expect to see throughout awards season. For a Spring twist on the classic red lip, embrace a two-tone look with the innovative new Ombré Lipstick, €5.50 range. The diamond-shaped applicator creates a gradient effect when applied to the lips. The highly pigmented lipstick, available in 6 shades, is also enriched with argon oil creating a soft and creamy texture.

Eyes On

Another key factor in creating a dramatic lip is to keep the eyeshadow neutral and understated – smokey eyes and bold lips are a ‘no’! This season, Catrice launches its range of brand new eyeshadow palettes including The Essential Nude, The Modern Matt, The Nude Blossom and The Precious Copper collections. Each palette consists of 9 highly-pigmented shades including a highlighter shade for the brow bone. Recreate the rosé finish as seen on Emma Stone and Reese Witherspoon with the soft and feminine Nude Blossom palette.


And finally, when it comes to lashes more is, of course, always more! The new Rock Couture Extreme Volume Mascara, €4.50 aims to add volume and definition on first application with its elastomer brush and rich black texture.
