Catrice Luminous Lips Lipsticks - Swatches and Review

Press Sample 

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of three Catrice Luminous Lips Lipsticks in Coffee & Cream, Lovable Me, and Read Me a Cherrytale. I recently reviewed the Liquid Metal Longlasting Cream Eyeshadows and wanted to talk about their lipsticks next. These are an incredible find if you're into a shiny lip products or want to steer away from the matte lip trend.

The lipsticks are available on Catrice Cosmetics for $5.99 for .12 oz.


Catrice says "Medium coverage, pampering lipstick for intensive shine and seductive color. Formulated with hyaluronic acid to lock-in moisture and visibly plump the lips. Leaves lips smooth, soft and hydrated"

The lipsticks are buildable to light/medium coverage depending on the shade. There's an amazing shine to the lipsticks which I don't see very often with drugstore priced lipsticks. These manage to balance shininess and pigmentation to give off this really wearable feel. Coffee and Cream is my personal "My Lips But Better" shade while Read Me a Cherrytale gives you that "just bitten" cherry lip stain + gloss look that makes your lips look super juicy. I'm not into Lovable Me because I think it's a shade that's too shimmery to wear alone but you can certainly use it as a topper.

What I found surprising about the lipsticks was that although they were quite creamy, they still managed to keep their shine even after four hours. Given how shiny they are and how creamy it felt on the lips, I didn't have high expectations for wear time but I think four hours for a shiny lipstick is really reasonable. I was also surprised that my lips felt more hydrated/soft after removing it. I can see what they mean when they say it's got hydrating qualities.

If you're looking for some shiny lipsticks with color and a bit of hydration, it's so worth it to check these lipsticks out. I for one think it's a great find if you're a little over the matte lipstick trend. Some of the colors do look better when layered with a lip liner but you can still wear it on its own.

Are you still into the matte lip trend?

    I'm always looking for hydrating lipsticks. Read Me A CherryTale is a very pretty shade. I never know what to try when I look at the Catrice display at Ulta, and now I do!

  2. I love Read Me A Cherrytale on you! I still love my Matte lippies but definitely am wearing more Glossy lips lately

  3. You are always a great lip model. I like this more shiny look since it makes your lips look more lush.

  4. I love how shiny these are! You look fabulous in all the shades but Read Me a CherryTale is YOUR color!

  5. I think I'll need Coffee & Cream for sure

  6. That last color is perfection on you.

  7. I want Lovable Me! That's the perfect pink without being too heavy or pepto looking

  8. Love these! Lots of pigmentation and great prices!
