Winter can be harsh on your lips with dry air inside and cold winds outside. It’s important to exfoliate, hydrate, and moisturize regularly. Give a new lip colour a try to boost your mood or match your newest outfit. Thanks to DV Communications Inc. for sending these Catrice Cosmetics lippies for me to test out and review for you. You can purchase Catrice Cosmetics now in Canada through Shoppers Drug Mart or Pharmaprix.
My top favourites are the Lip Oil and Plumping Lip Mask. The lip mask does add some shine and a bit of volume to your lips without the usual burn or tingle feel of other plumping products. I have used it both as an overnight treatment and during the day for added hydration. The lip oil soak into the lips quickly and I love it on its own or layered with the mask overtop. Catrice suggests using the lip oil in a trio with the Lip Sugar Scrub and Balm to exfoliate, the Lip Treatment with Shea Butter in the little pot and the Lip Oil over top.
Here are my thoughts on the other products. The Lip Sugar Scrub and Balm would be perfect for anyone who is sensitive or dislikes the feel of really scrubby exfoliating. The granules are so fine in this. I honestly can use this as just a lip balm and barely feel any scrubby particles, so it isn’t my go to exfoliating product. I’m going to take mine to work and keep it on my desk as a lip balm only, along with the Coconut Lip Balm. The balm does not have an overpowering fragrance which I think is wise. It includes Vitamin E and Argan Oil. Treat your lips with the shea butter in the little gold and frosted glass pot of Lip Treatment. I keep one on my vanity in case I need a bit of hydration just before putting on my makeup.
I suggest using a lip liner with this high-shine moisturizing formula of lipstick to keep it within your lip lines. You can wear these sheer or build them up for more opaqueness. I’m enjoying both of the colours I was sent and there are 9 in the range. In the comments let me know which one you prefer.
