I am here to tell you about the Full Satin Lipstick by Catrice in the shade Full of Happiness 050.
I am picky about buying new beauty products because I buy all my cosmetics for myself. I am getting a bit tired by the beauty market: too many brands, too many products, most of them are the same color/shade/texture. Therefore, I do not go for the shade I have already got or a texture which is not new or comfortable.
I suddenly saw this lipstick in one online store during my shopping routine and put it in the basket. The shade was something I was looking for, just everyday pink-ish with a satin texture (meaning no hair got sticky). Looking ahead, it was the right choice!
Design. Well, the design is truly nice and laconic. It has a geometric-shaped black plastic packaging with the letter-pressed name of the brand. On the backside of the tube it is possible to find a sticker with the name of the shade and information about the product. On the bottom of the stick it is possible to find another sticker that reflects the shade and contains information about the series name and shade number.
The weight of the lipstick is 3.8 grams and it is produced in Italy.
Shade and texture. Well, I did not know what to expect under “full satin” texture, since I almost do not have any lipsticks with this formula. When I tried it, I was pretty pleased!
The texture of this particular shade is like a dry cream, it is not very soft and can therefore drag the skin of your lips a little. Otherwise, it has good color pay off and gives color from the first swipe. It does not have a shiny finish but looks more like a semi-mat lipstick on the lips.
The formula does not dry the lips, it feels pretty comfortable throughout the day. The applied lipstick can survive a cup of coffee with some cookies but not a greasy lunch. It goes of very delicately while leaving lips a bit pink-ish stained.
The color is the most interesting part, the Full of Happiness shade by Catrice is a cold pink shade with interspersed of mother of pearl. Due to the pearl, the color looks very multifaceted and interesting on the lips. Also, the pearl inside the lipstick is blurring the lip texture and camouflage imperfections. It could be a very good everyday shade!
In conclusion, I liked the lipstick. The texture is a bit different, but has an unusual color with interspersed pearl make the lips look gorgeous. The formula does not dry the lips, which is a very good addition to this gorgeous shade!
The product is possible to purchase for around €4 or $5.
