Yes, it’s that time of the month again, Catrice released a new collection. They are not like Mac with almost a collection every week, and the prices are much better too (my wallet is so grateful for that) but some of their limited editions do create quite a stir!

The Cruise Couture collection consists out of nail polishes, a mascara, a navy gel liner, an eyeshadowpalette, lipglosses, lipsticks, a blush and a bag. The collection is inspired by the Cote d’Azur, with colours such as navy, coral and pink. I got very lucky to discover the collection in my local Kruidvat and I bought all the pink shades. The blue shades didn’t really speak to me, or were shades that I already had. So I present you the pink side of the Cruise Couture collection!



The nail polishes come in the typical Catrice bottle, but the cap is silver with a very pretty print. Each shade contains 10 ml and a bottle goes for 2.49 euro. The brush is wide and flat and makes application in one stroke possible. Catrice nail polishes are usually quite good in formulation, but wear a bit shorter than the average nail polish.



Jetsetter is a bright warm pink with a hint of coral. It sometimes looks almost orange to me, but it’s most definitely a pink colour. It somehow reminded me a bit of Catrice ‘Meet Me at Coral Island’. I compaired them next to each other and Jetsetter has a strong pink tone going on, while Meet Me at Coral Island is a true coral shade. The consistency was good and the shade is very well pigmented. I only needed two coats for a nice even finish.




Welcome To Pink Tropez is a cool medium pink. It has a very subtle purple tone going on which makes this colour interesting. The formula was a little bit on the thicker side, but application was still smooth and effortless. This shade was opaque with two layers. It’s pinker than ‘Wrapped Around My Finger’ from Catrice, and I could not find a close dupe for it, so I’m quite satisfied.




Welcome To Pink Tropez is a lipgloss (yes I know this is the same name as the nail polish, but Catrice does that a lot with their LE, it’s quite confusing sometimes) in the moisture and shine formula. It means that the pigmentation is a bit more sheer, but it’s more moistuising with a glossy finish. The shade is like a mix of the two nail polishes. It’s like a neutral medium pink. It doesn’t contain any glitter and it gives the lips a nice hint of colour. It’s not super pigmented, but it’s not very sheer as well, it’s something inbetween. The lip gloss has a light vanilla scent , it feels light and comfortable on the lips and it wears for around 3 hours. The lipbrush is a bit different than the normal Catrice lipglosses. It’s softer and I quite like it. This lipgloss goes for 3.79 euro and contains 5 ml of product.






Mrs. Brightside is a Ultimate Shine lipstick, and is part of the normal collection. In the limited edition this lipstick comes with the print on the cap, but I already owned Mrs Brightside, so I’m reviewing it in the normal packaging. The come in a silver bullet and the formula of these lipsticks are supposed to be shiny and a bit more sheer. The lipstick is very soft, almost like butter. It has the subtle vanilla scent to it. Mrs Brightside is a lighter yellow pink with little shimmers. It’s barely noticeable, so you don’t have to worry about glitters around your mouth. It goes on smooth and it feels very soft. It’s medium pigmented and gives the lips a pretty shine. I never had a pink like this before, but I quite like it. It’s very summery and it brightens up my face. Because of the smooth texture and the slip, this lipstick wears a bit shorter, around 3-4 hours, depends what you eat and/or drink in the meantime.

I’ve been looking forward to this collection, especially the gloss was something I wanted to try! I like every piece in the collection, but my favourites are the nail polishes. I don’t have that many pinks in my collection yet and these are right up my alley. It’s pink without going Barbie and it goes very well with my skin tone too! Are you picking up something from this collection?
