Review: Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadow in 070 Mauvie Star

♫ SHINee - Fire
Remember my beauty swap post from last year? Well, the cream eyeshadow I'm reviewing in this post is one of the items I received from the swap. :D (I know, it's been ages since that post.)
Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadow
Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows are said to be good dupes for Chanel's famous Apparence Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadows. This particular shade, 070 Mauvie Star, is said to resemble the Chanel Apparence Illusion d'Ombre in #83 Illusoire, but I can't compare them since I don't have the latter (nor the moolah to buy it lol).

Before the swatches, let me show you the packaging!

Compared to the Maybelline Color Tattoos, this Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadow is slightly smaller in diameter but almost twice the height of the Color Tattoos. It also has 5g (20% more product) in comparison to the Color Tattoos' 4g. The pot itself is made from sturdy, heavy clear plastic with a solid black screw lid. No worries about this baby shattering upon impact (or messing up your cosmetics bag)!

Close-up so you can see the pretty shimmer + colour shift!
Love the soft, creamy texture
The eyeshadow is very soft and creamy to the touch, and blends out really very well. It is quite pigmented, but if you over-blend it, the pretty grey-mauve colour will disappear and you'll be left with the glittery shimmer. I recommend layering it to get a stronger colour, and blending it out if you want a subtle shimmery look. :)
Swatches (2 swipes)
It's a great eyeshadow for both day and night, as you can layer it for a deeper shade. My camera couldn't capture the fine shimmer properly (refer top swatch), which is really pretty. Mauvie Star can look grey, brown, mauve, or taupe, depending on different angles and lighting conditions, which makes it a very unique eyeshadow shade. ♥

It's no wonder that cream eyeshadows are becoming the rage among beauty junkies lately. They typically wear longer on the lids, don't require a primer and have better colour payoff compared to powder eyeshadows, plus they're easy to carry around without making a mess in your bag.

You can check out the Catrice Made To Stay Longlasting Eyeshadows from their website. Unfortunately, Catrice is currently unavailable in Malaysia, but their sister brand Essence Cosmetics can be found in selected Parkson and Watsons outlets.

So tell me, what's your favourite cream eyeshadow at the moment? ;)

I found this brand in Guardian at Tesco Peringgit, Melaka. Not sure whether this brand will replace Essence or not.
