Review and Swatches: Catrice Velvet Matt Eyeshadow Al Burgundy and Vanillaty Fair

You all probably know by now that Catrice has bigger 2m assortment in Müllers. Part of their new products launch are also Velvet Matt eyeshadows, a collection of 6 highly pigmented matte eyeshadows. I liked the most two shades to which I decided to give a go, Al Burgundy and Vanillaty Fair



The packaging is as we can expect from Catrice very simple, plastic and transparent. They decided to put matte eyeshadows in round pans and I welcome that. I don't know why, but I like round eyeshadows better than square ones. What impressed me by these eyeshadows is the formula. These are the softest matte eyeshadows I tried. It's needed only one swipe with finger to see how amazing color payoff these have. I only have one complain - they brake so easily. At least Al Burgundy brake quickly, I think mine brake after second usage. And mine is not the only one, I saw by few fellow bloggers that they had a similar experience. So Al Burgundy shade (not sure if any other as well) is definitely not a product you would carry with you in your makeup travel bag. 
Al Burgundy is such a chameleon shade. In the pan it looks a lovely burgundy shade, swatched on a hand it has a bit purple sheen to it and applied on lids it looks more brownish. But it's definitely one amazing shade, silky, pigmented, easy to apply and blend. But it does fall out. 
Vanillaty Fair is a lovely yellowish white shade, also highly pigmented and easy to apply and blend. I love to use it as highlighter, but it also looks amazing on lids due to its high pigmentation.  


I decided to do one simple look with those two eyeshadows to show you how they act on eyes. As you can see, Al Burgundy looks quite brownish when blended out. I also have nothing but good things to say about the duration time. They lasted on my lids my whole working day (nine hours if I count my way to work and back home alongside) without fading away or creasing. 


I can only recommend you to try eyeshadows from Velvet Matt collection. I haven't try other shades, but these two impressed me a lot. I'd specially recommend Al Burgundy (I quickly forgave it for breaking so easily), it's amazing shade for fall and it looks gorgeous over Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk (click). Vanillaty Fair is for you if you search a good matte eyeshadow for highlighting. Price is 4,29 € for 3,5 g.

Have you tried Catrice Velvet Matt eyeshadows? What do you think about them? Thank you for reading!

  1. Ravno ta dva odtenka bi si rada kupila, pa se mi zdi cena malo pretirana. Burgundy sem mislila, da je veliko bolj rdečkast, pa izgleda bolj rjav. Škoda. Vanilatty sem pa želela kot ti uporabljati za osvetljevalec, predvsem za zimo. Še vedno se ne morem odločiti ali naj kupim, ali ne:)

    1. Intenziteta je odvisna od nanosa. Ko se zblenda, je bolj rjav, čez veko je dtenek bolj podoben barvi v pakiranju, je pa odvisno tudi od podlage, ko ga dam čez CT Pomagranate Punk, je bolj vijoličen. :) Glede na pakiranje pa je meni cena nekako normalna, 3,5 g ni malo. :)

  3. meni je tale vijolična ful lepa v embalaži, škoda pa da ni tako lepa na očeh :/ Sicer pa sama zelo ne rada kupujem posebej senčke, žal :P .. Vseeno pa izgledajo lepo in kvalitetno :)

  5. Jaz imam nagledana tista dva taupe/siva odtenka. Ko sem jih swatchala v trgovini, me je kvaliteta zelo pozitivno presenetila :)

    1. Saj mene je swatchanje v trgovini prepričalo v nakup. ;)

  6. Sem jih morala malo 'potipat' v trgovini in so tako zelo mehke da sem se na koncu odločila da moram kupiti vsaj Vanillaty Fair, nagledano imam pa še sivo

  7. Sem se ravno včeraj zvečer po glavi tepla, da nisem kupla Al Burgundy, ker še nimam podobne mat senčke in sem jo potrebovala :D Mi je pa tudi Vanilatty zelo všeč po tvojih swatchih in mislim, da bom tudi to kupila :)
