CATRICE ~ Updated Collection ~ Review+Haul ~

So recently, Catrice updated their collection and added some wonderful items. I always get really exited when they update, and always end up buying stuff I won't be using anyways. So this time, I only got the things I really wanted to try out/needed. This is what I got:

1. Ultimate Nail Laquer in Salmon & Garfunkel ~ 10 ml - €2,49
2. Ultimate Nail Laquer in Genius In The Bottle ~ 10 ml - €2,49
3. Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder ~ €5,49 ( I already did a review on this, click here for the review)
4. Absolute Eye Colour in Oh, It's Toffeeful! ~ 2 g/0.07 oz - €2,79

I'm just going to review them one by one:

1. Ultimate Nail Laquer in Salmon & Garfunkel
~ This is a really nice salmon/peachy colour with no shimmers and a cream finish. It's perfect for spring and great for everyday since it's very neutral and nothing crazy (great for work/school). You do need at least 2 coats for this to look nice and opaque.
Salmon & Garfunkel
2. Ultimate Nail Laquer in Genius In The Bottle 
~ I really like this one as well. Especially because it kinda looks like Chanel's Peridot, which I would love to have, but I don't like spending that much money on just one nailpolish (one very, very pretty nailpolish...). It's hard to decribe, but I guess it's like a gold with a green/blueish sheen to it (?). The sheen doesn't completely show up on your nails, which is too bad because I would love this even more then. Here is a comparison between Catrice and Chanel:

They look pretty similar, don't they?

Here are the two nailpolishes on a nailwheel;

Salmon & Garfunkel looks a tad bit darker than in the bottle and Genius In The Bottle just looks like a darker metallic gold. I couldn't capture the green/blueish sheen on camera, but in real life you can kinda see it. These two nailpolishes last about 2 days without chipping (I didn't even use a top coat >.<), which is pretty good and they won't need to last any longer for me because I will get bored of my nails after 2 days (: Well worth the price and really affordable.
Catrice also updated their nailpolish applicators, and now they are rounded which really makes it a lot easier and quicker to apply nailpolish.With these applicators, you only need one single swipe to cover your entire nail.

3. Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder

4. Absolute Eye Colour in Oh, It's Toffeeful! 
~ This is a very nice shimmery golden/light brownish colour (kind of toffee-ish colour?) and looks great in the crease, all over the lid and as a inner corner/browbone highlight. The colour payoff is good as well and the price is very good. I really don't have anything bad to say about it, since I'm a big fan of Catrice eyeshadows (I will do a blog post with swatches of all the Catrice eyeshadows I own). The texture is very nice, kind of creamy and not chalky. And no fall-outs ^___^

I hope you liked my haul/review, and if you like my blog please follow me (:
