Review: Catrice Camouflage Cream in "Ivory"

16:09:00

Hey beauties,

So today I am going to share my thoughts on the most raved about drugstore concealer. Am talking about the "Catrice camouflage cream". Recently a lot of bloggers were writing and talking about the amazing coverage of this concealer which tempted me to try it. Luckily, I was able to get one for me from J4G. The shade I bought is "Ivory". Let's see what I have to say about this concealer after trying it....

Catrice camouflage cream comes in a little black plastic pot like container. The small pot is travel-friendly and convenient to use. The texture of this concealer is thick and creamy. The texture of this concealer is almost solid inside the pot (may be because of the cold weather these days). But still, the concealer is easy to swatch and use....yaaay..!!!

When I first tried this concealer I was seriously blown away by the coverage it provides. I mean WOW it really covers well. A sheer layer of this concealer is just enough to do the job. Don't apply too much or it may look a bit cakey or even claggy. I take a very thin layer of this concealer on my finger tip and then apply it under my eyes where I need the most coverage. For blending, I tap this concealer gently into my skin using the same finger and it blends so well. You can use a concealer brush if you like.

I have dry/combo skin in winters and this concealer does not enhance any under eye dryness. It doesn't crease or settle into fine lines for me. If you still feel that you can have the creasing issue with this cream concealer then don't forget to set it with a good setting powder. The only issue I have with this concealer is the limited shade range. I picked the lightest shade for myself but the shade is actually lighter when applied than it looks in the pot. It looks fine on my skin tone especially when applied over my foundation but I still feel mixing this shade with a slightly darker shade will create an even better match for me.

In the above picture I have applied only a very thin layer of catrice camouflage cream in "ivory" without any primer, foundation or powder. You can see that it covers the dark circles really well and doesn't look cakey. Overall, I love this concealer a lot and I think it will work even better for covering blemishes or pimples. The best part is the staying power of this concealer. It lasted on me almost all day which is greattttt.

The Goods:
  • Great coverage
  • Blends easily
  • Does not settle into fine line
  • Doe not crease
  • Amazing staying power
  • Very little amount of product is needed
  • Affordable
The Bads:
  • Limited shade range (Finding the perfect match for your skin tone can be difficult)
  • Availability in Pakistan
Price & Availability: I bought this concealer from online store Just4girls.pk for PKR 580/- only.

    1. Well I won't say it is very brightening as compared to other under eye illuminating concealers... But yes it does brighten the eye are a bit after application...

    2. That's why didn't include the brightening effect in the "Pros". Its a full coverage, thick concealer so I won't actually list it in the brightening concealers category :)

    1. Yes it works well while covering dark circle...However, I do feel the circles do look a bit greyish because the color is really light... But after applying foundation and setting powder it just looks fine...but still am planning to buy the medium shade from this range to mix and make my perfect match... :)

  16. It looks like a highlighter, isn't it highlighting rather than concealing?
