Catrice Matchpoint, Candy Shock and Hip Trip collection displays

Came across three Catrice collections yesterday in various stores here in Switzerland. Matchpoint is the sport-themed summer collection for June-July that includes some baked eyeshadows, lip balm tints (similar to Clinique Chubby Sticks) and blush sticks.

I would have liked to get the Blush Sticks in C01 ChamPINKon and C02 Rockby but unfortunately all the pieces left had been tested. See the collection details and video here.

Candy Shock is the pastel themed collection for April-May inspired by ballerina couture with lots of baked eyeshadows, blushes and a multi-color highlighter. This is the collection currently available at Guardian Pharmacy stores in Singapore that carry Catrice. See the collection details and video here.

Hip Trip is the music festival-themed collection for May-June. Aside from the usual oversized bronzer, nail polishes, eyeshadow palette and lipsticks, it also includes a pink passport cover. However, this felt quite cheaply made without any unique design details.

See the collection details and video here.

I found all three collections to be underwhelming. They had interesting ad visuals but in terms of the products, there wasn't anything that really stood out. The Glamazona collection for Jun-Jul looks interesting but I haven't seen it anywhere. The stores here do not always stock every collection, so it's always pretty random in terms of what I am able to find.
