Last month Catrice launched their new Neo-Natured limited edition. The collection is inspired by nature and its colors but what really drew me was their bamboo casing. So gorgeous! I tried out the Wooden Poetry lipstick in C01 Nudetral Nature and the matching Lined with Love lipliner.
Have you seen Catrice’s latest limited edition yet? The earth tones dominating the color palette are just perfect for fall, don’t you think? A pink matte blush, two eyeshadow palettes with greens, taupe and brown tones and four nail varnish shades were nicely aligned on the store display next to 3 beautifully packaged lipsticks with matching lipliners. Couldn’t just leave without one, right?
If there are two things that get me every time, it must be cute product naming and beautiful packaging so I was happy to find out this collection had both! I mean, Nudetral Nature: cute, right? 🙂 And don’t get me started on the packaging! The bamboo casing is just perfect for a line inspired by nature plus it looks really nice on my dresser.
The Wooden Poetry lipsticks are available in three colors: nude, rusty red and a darker red, each with a matching lip liner. With its soft texture and pleasant fragrance, the lipstick made a very nice first impression.
Nudetral Nature Lipstick
I would describe the Nudetral Nature color as a rusty orange nude with a creamy finish. I do find the shade a tad too intense to really say it gives a natural look but it is very beautiful nonetheless. Feeling very buttery on my lips, the lipstick is enjoyable to wear and holds for almost two hours.
Lined with Love Lipliner
The extendable tip of the lipliner easily outlined my lips with a very discernable line. The texture feels very dry though so applying just the lipliner was a big no for me as it really brings out all the chaps. Covering the lipliner with the lipstick gave my lips a more wearable look and helped to keep them colored for a longer period. I think I managed to keep them colored for a good three to four hours, which is really good. The finish is about the same as when applying just the lipstick but the lipliner underneath gave a very dry feeling to my lips. Overall I think I will skip the liner in the future because of this.
The Catrice Neo-Natured lipstick is a very nice lipstick for a small price. The sheen finish and intense color gave my lips a gorgeous look. Although the staying power is rather limited I do prefer using just the lipstick without the lipliner as the last tends to feel very dry on the lips. The bamboo packaging of the lipstick is absolutely stunning. Too bad this casing is limited to only the lipstick and blush. I would have loved seeing the entire collection in it 🙂
