Today,I am going to review the Ultimate Colour Lipsticks by Catrice Cosmetics.
About Catrice Cosmetics:

Products with high-quality ingredients, luxurious textures and innovative formulas. Premium packaging. An ideal price-performance-ratio to ensure a pure love of shopping. Twice a year, 25% of the CATRICE range is updated so that there is always something new to discover.

CATRICE – a pure joy of life: inspiring, contagious and multi-facetted.
Available in fifteen different shades.I picked three of them.
Highly-pigmented, rich shades with perfect coverage and shine, plus a smooth, creamy and long-lasting texture: color at its most beautiful – that lasts for hours.

- 340,Berry Bradshaw : It's a berry-toned pink shade with mauvy undertones.Deep pink with very heavy blue-undertones
- 140,Pinker-bell : It's a bright fuchsia pink shade apt for summers
- 310,Red My Lips : It's a very bright flat out red shade that can be worn anytime.Suitable for parties and functions.
All the shades mentioned above will suit all the skin tones well.Especially medium-complexioned Indian skin tones.
The lipsticks in the Ultimate Colour collection come in a black coloured plastic tube.
Details like shade number,name,quantity and shelf-life are mentioned on the tube-packaging.
The bottom of the lipstick has a colour-coded sticker that matches the lipstick's shade the tube holds.It comes in very handy if we have more than one lipstick from this collection.
The packaging is sleek,sturdy and travel-friendly.

Formula & Texture:
- The lipsticks in the Ultimate Colour collection have a creamy-finish
- Very pigmented
- One single swipe is enough to cover-up any lip-pigmentation
- Satin-finish of the lipsticks makes the lips look luscious
- Very comfortable
- Doesn't settle into the fine-lip lines
- Keeps lips moisturized for a really long time
- Sets quickly on the lips and after few hours looks kind of matte on the lips.Yes,the sheen goes away as the time passes
- Survives light snacks
- After a heavy meal,we need to re-apply the lipstick
- Re-application is easy and layering up the product doesn't look patchy.
- Doesn't flake or feather
- Not transfer-proof
- Not smudge-proof
The lipsticks in the ultimate colour collection last for about five hours straight.These lipsticks leave a feeble stain on the lips.Can be removed easily using a makeup-wipe or remover.Long lasting lipsticks...I must say.
Overall,I love these lipsticks and you must try at least one shade out of fifteen shades available.The lipsticks in the Ultimate colour collection are nicely pigmented and long-lasting at the same time.There are awesome shades available...from nudes to bold reds they have it all.Cool!
Will I re-purchase?
Rating : 4.5/5
Tips: Lining out lips before applying the lipstick is a good idea.Also,don't forget to prep-up the lips by exfoliating and applying a generous amount of lip balm.Then,wipe off the lip balm exactly before applying the lipstick
