Not too long ago Catrice was the “mouse” of German drugstore brands. Their range was dominated by your standard drugstore makeup variety: nudes, reds, pinks and maybe even browns. But then about a year ago Cosnova – the mother company of both Essence and Catrice – stepped up their game and relaunched the entire brand Catrice. With success. The previous monotony was replaced by a wide range of colorful products. Bright eye shadows and much, much more and exciting nail polishes.
Before the relaunch the Catrice limited editions already have included interesting nail polishes too but because the entire brand wasn’t appealing to me and only a very few drugstores in my town carry Catrice I never really looked into them. The most interesting part of the relaunch for me were of course the nail polishes and they caused a huge hype among nail polish enthusiasts.
Not only now Catrice has great nail polishes in their permanent collection but their limited editions also include stunning nail polishes most of the time. Today I’d like to show you the four nail polishes from Catrice’s Out of Space limited edition.
I usually would sort the nail polishes by numbers starting here with C01 My Milkyway but because it in my opinion is the weakest of the four I will show it as the last swatch:
Large silver shimmer which makes it almost look like a glitter in a dark green base? Yes please!
My Milkyway could be nice for frankens though because of its light blue and pink glass or shimmer flecks. But as a top coat it didn’t work for me and I also couldn’t see any color changing.
The formula of Houston’s Favorite, Beam Me Scotty and Moonlight Express was great. Because I haven’t work My Milkyway on its own I can’t tell much about how many coats you would need to have an opaque finish of it. As a top coat it was too patchy for me.
All in all I am glad I picked all of them up – even when I only can use My Milkyway for frankens.
Have you purchased anything from the Catrice Out of Space collection and if yes how do you like it?
I made these swatches before my move and now seeing my long nails on the pictures makes me a little sad. I hope my broken nail grows back fast.
Thanks for looking and have a great start of the week! ♥
