Review and Swatches: Catrice Absolute Matt Eyes Wide Matt Palette

If you read my blog for a longer time then you know natural makeup isn’t really my thing. I don’t say that I don’t wear it, because I do, but colourful makeup is the one that is more challenging for me. Why this intro? Because today I want to show you a palette that wasn’t a love at first sight, but my love for it grew slowly and now I adore it. I’m talking about Catrice Absolute Matt Eyes Wide Matt palette. In our drugstores is quite hard to find matte eyeshadows, what even a good matte eyeshadows. Catrice is doing pretty good job in this matter because beside this neutral palette they are also offering single matte eyeshadows that have amazing pigmentation.


Catrice Absolute Matt palette comes in a plastic packaging with a transparent lid which enables you to see all eyeshadows in the palette. It weights 6 g and it’s pretty small, so it’s appropriate for travelling. Although I have to say the packaging works a bit cheap to me.

The palette contains six eyeshadows (white, beige - some say this one is pink toned, but I have to admit I don't see any pink in it, strange, taupe, warm brown, dark brown and dark grey). They have very silky and smooth texture and their color payoff is amazing. You literally can apply one coat of eyeshadow over the lid and don’t need to build it up (unless if you want to. But then again that depends from the look you want to achieve). They are dusty, but I didn’t have any problems with fall out. 


These swatch so nicely and they fell so creamy. Application is a blast and they blend very well. These are great for everyday neutral look or even smokey look, if you use darker shades all over the lid. Two lightest ones are good for highlighting or to use all over the lid. I personally like to use second or third eyeshadow all over the lid, fourth in crease, fifth in outer V and first for highlighting. What I like about this palette is that these eyeshadows are truly matte, without any tiny shimmer that would later be visible on eyes. On my lids these eyeshadow didn’t crease, but they did fade away after few hours.


The look I made with Catrice Absolute Matt palette. I also made a tutorial for it, so you can read more here


Overall, I think this is a great neutral drugstore palette with matte eyeshadows and I’d recommend it to everyone for everyday usage. Its price is also low, it costs around 5 €, and for this price you’ll get six nicely pigmented eyeshadows. You know I’m a person who prefers shimmery and colourful eyeshadow, and I say Catrice Absolute Matt palette is a winner.  

Have you tried Catrice Absolute Matt palette? How do you like it? Thank you for reading!

  1. Barve so krasne, sploh tista taupe in toplo rjava. <3
    Jaz bi jo verjetno že kupila, če me ne bi druge paletke bolj pritegnile (od Makeup Revolution, Deborah). Verjetno za to malo krivim izgled embalaže (ker sem pač sucker za lepe embalaže). :) No, mogoče me pa kdaj vseeno 'prime', da jo kupim, ker so barve res lepe in takšnih ni nikoli dovolj!

    1. Srednji dve sta moji najljubši. :)
      Pakiranje od Catrice resda izgleda cheap, ampak kvaliteta je pa super za drogerijsko paleto. :)

  4. Men je super in jo zelo pogosto uporabljam <3 Je pa nekomu padla na tla (krivca še iščem :) tako da se ne zapira več pa prva senčka mi je šla cela. Še dobro, da raje nosim temnejše odtenke :D

    1. Mislim, da za prvo ni taka škoda, ker je druga tudi super za osvetljevanje. :) Je pa res, da je prva pri meni najbolj uporabljana (sploh, ker jo vključujem v looke, kjer uporabljam belo senčilo). :)

  5. Ravno včeraj sem jo kupila. :) Delno tudi zato, ker nimam ravno veliko mat senčil sploh pa ne cele palete. Tebi so swatchi super uspeli, jaz pa prvi dve sploh nisem mogla poswatchat. Kar ni in ni bilo barve od njiju.

    1. A res? Meni se pa prvi dve krasno swatchata. Mogoče si dobila kak slabši primerek. Ali pa sem spet jaz, ki uspem swatchati vse po vrsti, tudi če ni pigmentirano. :P

    1. These palette are always popular, I think, especially because in our drugstores there aren't many palettes from different brands. :)

    1. Jaz je sama verjetno ne bi kupila, ker nisem ravno tip za naravna senčila (I love colors, what can I say :P), ampak mi je pa zelo všeč. :)

    1. I think Nude Rose isn't really for me, so I probably won't get it. :)

    1. Thank you so much. :) I do wear nude shades on everyday basis, but otherwise I'm more for a bold makeup. :)

  10. Čudovit makeup look! Se že nekaj časa odločam, katero izmed teh nude paletk bom kupila(osnovno imam...), pa mislim, da je tale pravkar zmagala ;)

  14. Sem jo kupila pred kratkim, ampak je še nisem uspela stestirat. Na prvi pogled deluje kot mešanica med Urban Decay Naked Basics 1 in 2.

    1. Ja, res je, o tem bolj piše Mateja (Mateja's Beauty Blog). Sama nimam nobene UD palete, ker so mi barve bolj pri srcu. :)

  15. Jaz jo ful obožujem in uporabljam kadar le lahko :D škoda mi je edino ker so senčke malce 'prahaste' in gre zato nekaj izdelka v nič.

    1. Ja, to je res, ampak mene to niti ne moti, ker je to značilnost večine drogerijskih senčil. :)

  16. Sem že razmišljala, če se splača kupiti tole paletko :) Sicer se odločam med tole in Absolute rose. Vsekakor bom preizkusila, ker vidim, da je super!

  18. Jaz imam verzijo absolute rose in me ni prepričala, morda zadnji trije odtenki (temnejši). Prvi so skoraj brez učinka, temnejši pa se drobijo. Moja prva, ampak je ne bi več kupila, četudi je res poceni :)

    1. Jaz sicer tiste nimam, mi je pa ta super. Senčila so resda praškasta, ampak glede na to, da gre za drogerijsko paleto, me to sploh ne moti. :D

  19. V zadnjem casu je definitivno postala moja najljubsa za preprost vsakodnevni make up. Tretja in cetrta sencka sta moji najljubsi! :)
