Swatches & Review - 2 BRAND NEW Catrice shades!

Hi loves! Today I have 2 BRAND NEW Catrice shades called First Class Up-Grape and Must-Have STEELetto for you from the most recent collection update. I grabbed the 2 I found most interesting, since I am not all that impressed with this release. And unfortunately, one out of these 2 isn't my favorite either.. let's get to it!

With this release, the brush is still not my favorite, but it seems the brush cap isn't as flimsy anymore. These bottles are now €2,99 in The Netherlands which is an increase in price I believe. Other than that no changes!

Catrice First Class Up-Grape swatches review
Catrice First Class Up-Grape is a deep dark burgundy shade with a heavy shimmer, though not metallic nor frosty in finish. It reminds me of a shade released with China Glaze's Fall collection last year. I was pleasantly surprised with this one, since it's almost opaque in a single coat. That means it'll probably work for stamping, too! The formula is a bit thick but good to manage, and in 2 coats you are done completely. It looks nice and shiny already but I finished with a top coat just to make it perfect. Great Fall shade and a nice addition to my stash!

Catrice Must-Have STEELetto swatches review
Catrice Must-Have STEELetto looks like a lilac foil in the bottle, but on the nails it's more silver with a hint of lilac. This did not please me much, it looks so messy on the nails somehow! The formula is sheer and I needed 3 coats for proper opacity, which I am not used to with finishes like these. It did apply easy, it spreads evenly and easy and isn't patchy at all. Be careful though to not overwork a layer or it'll clump! Like I said this disappointed me on the nail, however the shade is pretty and it is blingy for sure!
