Catrice Revoltaire Collection: Swatches

Revoltaire is the funky new limited edition collection for April by Catrice, dominated by an unusual combination of toxic acid green and coral pink.

Velvet Matte Lip Color in 01 Colour Bomb, 02 Nude Alarm and 03 Bloody Red boasted good color payoff for a drugstore brand.

Ultimate Nail Lacquer in 01 Innocent Toxin, 02 Attracting Camouflage, 03 Colour Bomb, 04 Colour Of Honor and 05 Mission Lilac.

Colour Blush 01 Colour Bomb is a gradient blush with baby pink to rosy pink tones. This has a slightly glowy finish.

The cases of the Smoky Eyes Palettes reminded me of MAC's holiday palettes from a few years ago. Each palette contains three powder eyeshadows and a cake eyeliner shade. These felt slightly dry to touch and some of the shades, in particular the cake liners, swatched poorly. after swatching them, I didn't quite feel that they were must-haves although the shades looked more complex than what one usually expects from a drugstore brand.
