What is Catrice?
|Brand Manager for Catrice Sean Conal|

It has a large selection of colors and has beautiful shades in both vibrant and neutral and it is definitely more of an affordable line as compared to the more premier high end ones but what is really great about this brand is that the quality of these products are wonderful and are cruelty free.

Fashion Showcase by Cheryll from Roots Boutique inspired by Kaviar Gauche
|The Fashion Showcase|
So with regards to this fashion showcase, Catrice had teamed up with Cheryll from Roots Boutique who drew inspiration from bridal house Kaviar Gauche. The fashion runway donned models with full fashion and bridal makeup from the celebrated collaboration with Catrice. Thus with the vision of quality, functionality and price in place, Cheryll focused on shape, cut and style which also exhibited beautifully on the runway.
This inspiration was due to Catrice's previous successful collaboration with Kaviar Gauche at the Berlin Fashion Week at the beginning of the year, thus mutually developing the makeup line called Limited Edition 'Kaviar Gauche for CATRICE' for this Autumn/Winter 2015.
|The Bridal Collection|
So for those of you who are fans of modern and feminine styles, this makeup line would be right up your alley. Soft and subtle with light, avant-garde looks and modern romanticism, Catrice has a total mix of six eyeshadows, two contouring powders and a white eyeliner for this range. It is also packaged with a range of floral laced designs, turning all of the products into a bridal beauty must have this season.
New Launches (Autumn/Winter 2015)
|The Autumn and Winter 2015 Highlights|
So before we speak on the limited editions, let's talk about what is in the permanent collection first. This is the Autumn / Winter 2015 Assortments so with this in mind, lets delve in.
Now we are not going to go too deep into specifics but let's do an overview of the makeup line and its highlights. So to start of with, the range has 27 new products. That by itself is overwhelming, yes but to really focus on the gems of this collection, we are going to highlight three.
|The Chocolate Nude Palette|
Now for this trend, chocolate is the new black and soft and subtle shades are on the rise to fame, so the first one up is the Catrice Absolute Chocolate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. This palette consists of six shades, are absolutely beautiful and is very travel friendly. Plus it retails for RM26.90 so its pretty much a bang for your buck.
|The Sun Glow Mineral Bronzing Powder|
Next up, the Catrice Sun Glow Mineral Bronzing Powder. This one here is really beautiful and contains valuable minerals and light reflecting pigments for a sun-kissed complexion. Swatching it on, it provides a soft matte finish and is really great for Summer. This product only comes in one shade and retails at RM24.90.
|The Multi Matte Blush|
Now since we seem to be working in mattes here, lets give our last highlight to the Catrice Multi Matte Blush. This is a color quartet which is combination of four perfectly aligned matte shades all in one blush. You can choose to wear this in each shade or you can give your brush a full swirl for fresher look. There are two shades to this and retails at RM19.90 each.

|The Blockbuster Palette|
Now remember we were speaking on the Limited Edition Kaviar Gauche for Catrice Collection earlier? Well this is it. Right here we have the blockbuster Eye and Face Palette, which comes in six delicate eyeshadow colors and one contour and highlight shade.
This set here has already been made available in stores (though we are a little unsure on whether it has been displayed) but this beauty is available for purchase at RM36.90 and is packaged with a graceful golden floral lace design.
|The blurring powder pearls|
However the one that took the cake was this product right here. Now doesn't this remind you a little of Guerlain? Well this is definitely the more affordable version and it is called the Blurring Powder Pearls that makes the skin look very smooth and seamless.
It also has light reflecting pigments ensuring a flawless and glowing complexion for the face and although it is only available in the shade C01 Sweet Secret, it is retailing at RM23.90 and you can find it at selected local Guardian stores nationwide.

|On the collections|
Overall the collections shown at Catrice was impressive and looking into the Limited Editions, their packaging has really improved and as much we would like to strongly advocate for their Eye Brow Set (which is amazing), its time to turn your focus to these stellar products for this Autumn/ Winter 2015.
Now as the limited edition sets will not remain available throughout the permanent line, we would highly recommend to get it while it is still in stock for this Christmas season. However as the Travel De Luxe will only be launching in February 2016, you can prob still wait out for that one.
