Catrice Gel Eyeliner + My ‘new’ hair

I believe Catrice is a German brand available in few European countries. I picked up few bits from their range when I was in Poland last year. I am really happy with every purchase. Very good quality products for a great price.

Today I wanted to show you Gel eyeliner in 020 It’s mambo no.2


What it claims to do: Thanks to its ultra-smooth gel-texture, you don’t have to be a professional top model to create gorgeous and long-lasting eyeliner looks. The CATRICE Gel Eye Liner can be applied as accurately as a liquid eyeliner – for an especially silky finish and fascinating, intense eyes!

Formula: Soft and creamy. Super easy to apply.

How to use it: There are tons of kinds of brushes you could use to apply it. It’s a personal preference because I think this gel liner works great with any kind of brush.

My experience: Cannot fault it. It has greyish/purpuly slightly metallic colour. Great alternative to black for a daytime. Goes on smoothly and stays put for a whole day. I didn’t notice any smudging whatsoever. The only thing is: ‘you don’t have to be a top model to create eyeliner look’ ??? As far as I know models don’t do their own make-up for runway, photo shoots etc. I think what they meant was ‘You don’t have to be a professional make-up artist…’ but hey!

Price: I don’t exactly remember now :( I am pretty sure it was something silly like £3 or £4!

Where to buy: I know about Germany and Poland. Ebay?

Final score: 9/10 Like I mentioned before I cannot fault it! I had it for a few months now and it didn’t dry one bit so packaging is great too. I am taking a point away for availability. This brand should come to the UK.

Onto the hair:

So here’s my hair… not much difference isn’t there? I have gone for allover highlights in warm blond colour. This made my hair look so much healthier and natural. I have left my long fringe and went for middle parting (how adventurous of me, eh?) I like it but each time I look in the mirror I think to myself ‘I want long hair!’. I have heard about these supplements you can take to speed up hair growth. Any of you heard about those? Let me know.
