Foundation Review Catrice 24 h Made to Stay Makeup

The most efficient way to finish foundation? Apart from wearing it consistently, of course? Dropping the glass bottle on the bathroom tiles.

And a great way to test the waterproof claims, too.

How do I know that? Well, I did just that, a few weeks ago, when my bottle of Catrice 24 h Made to Stay makeup shattered on the tiles.

Just to be crystal clear: This is not the way I will be testing my foundations from now on. Trying to get it off the floor at 6 am (and yes, it is at least water resistant!) while already dressed in office attire is not recommended!

 

But if the Catrice 24 h Made to Stay Makeup is? Let´s find out!

New In Beauty February 2018

February is a weird month for me. On one hand it is filled with birthday celebrations (read here), on the other hand it is a transitional month at it´s worst.

Lots of people complained about January dragging on, but at least January is proper winter! I get comfort from hot chocolate, warm blankets and dark lips, all the things that make winter worthwile. Once February arrives though, I get spring fever.

Catrice All Matt plus Shine Control Makeup – My love for labels

I love it when things are organized. Like in exactly labelled, filed and sorted away.

When I started working at my ICU, still doing night shifts, I would spend them going through the documents, organizing them and making sure they were sorted by type and date when everything else was done.

It drove my coworker (male, spontaneous, chaotic – you get the drift) absolutely crazy, especially because I kept asking if he had done the same with his records already, pointing out the many benefits that would come from this system.

We even got into a fight about it. He called me crazy and compulsive, I called him careless and chaotic.

Today? We are happily married. Needless to say I am responsible for the paperwork.

But where am I going with this? Well, the thing is, the Catrice All Matt plus Shine Control Makeup is a lovely foundation. But it isn’t labelled correctly. And that is driving me nuts.
