Swatches & Review - 2 brand new Catrice shades

Hi loves! Twice a year, Catrice updates their core assortment and releases new goodies. Obviously I always have to check for new fun polishes and this time I brought home 2 shades. I wasn't as impressed with this assortment update - there are a few new polish lines but they keep increasing prices and I'm just not sure if it's still worth it.

Catrice (S)wimbledon is a turqouise shade, almost neon and with a very fine silver shimmer running through it. But, even though my pictures might convince you otherwise, the shimmer isn't really to be seen in real life. It might have to do with the opacity of the formula - you could get away with 1 careful coat! Application wise it's kinda thick. I used 2 here and topped it with G&G HK Girl topcoat.

Catrice All You Need Is Pink is a medium pink, kinda warm in tone filled with a silver shimmer that seems to have some gold specks, too. The shimmer is definitely visible in real life! Again, very opaque formula, though slightly thinner tha (S)wimbledon - 2 coats were needed for proper opacity. Topped with G&G HK Girl topcoat.

Overall conclusion
These 2 new shades are a nice addition to the range and I'm impressed with the opacity of both of them. Nice, creamy formulas that apply well. The brush has changed (again) but for the better this time. It's less rounded on the bottom and slightly wider than the previous brush, but it's easier to control and gives a nice rounded each at the cuticle. 

My favorite is All You Need Is Pink because the shimmer remains visible, but if you are looking for a fun and bright turquoise shade (S)wimbledon is your pick!

Which one do you like best? And have you ever tried any Catrice polishes? Tell me in the comments!

  1. I saw these last Monday when I went looking for the Nudes that were announced a while ago. I kind of liked them but I didn't buy any as, like you said, the prices keep going up and I'd rather save my money for some of those gorgeous indies I keep seeing ;)

  2. These are really nice! I think I may have a polish that's similar to (s)wimbledon but All you need is pink looks like something I need to get :). I haven't bought any Catrices in a year or so :o

  20. Both of these are gorgeous! Especially Catrice (S)wimbledon, I need these but not a fan of the increased prices :/

  21. I agree, I prefer Alll You Need is Pink because of that shimmer! I have a few Catrice polishes that friends overseas have sent me but most of them are glitter toppers.

  22. I was looking at the new Catrice products the day and you are right, nothing super impressive, but now looking at the swatch of (S)wimbledon I might go and pick it up :)

  27. All You Need is Pink is SO pretty!

  28. Yeah, it's not like they are ugly or something, but somehow it just irks me that we keep paying more but it's not like the quality really improves. Though Catrice seems to wear quite nicely on me. Oh well, when they have a 1+1 sale I'm pretty sure I'll buy some more ;-).

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks Eva! They are nice though not so surprising, maybe when there's a sale you could score some?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ha, #sorryimnotsorry :D! They do! Some lovely stamping ^^.

    ReplyDelete
  31. They definitely feel appropriate for Spring! Thanks ^^

  32. It's definitely the shimmer that makes it a stand out!

  39. Do you have access to Catrice? If not - I could always help you out!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yup the sneaky increases are not the most fun, but other than that they are fun!

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's pretty huh? And so nice to have friends that do have access to certain brands, it's always annoying when you want something but can't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm pretty sure when there's a 1+1 sale I'll grab some more. Just not for the regular price!

    ReplyDelete
  43. If you ever need a mule, let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  44. A bit too delicate in (S)Wimbledon, but the creamy formula makes up for that!
