Catrice Cosmetics In India! Haul

You may have noticed that I'm not so adventurous when it comes to drugstore brands. I mean, the time I was in the UK, when I went to Boots & Superdrug, what did my hauls consist of? Bourjois, Revlon, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Rimmel..... same old, same old. So when I buy more than one product from a new brand, it means I like it.... A LOT!

Yesterday evening, when we were grocery shopping at our local supermarket, I spotted Catrice in one corner of the store, and I didn't want to leave the store anymore! I wanted to buy soooo many things! I was not offended by the prices....oh, and all products have witty shade names!
About Catrice Cosmetics: It's a European brand, that's only sold in some parts of Europe. They're known for good budget-friendly beauty products. If I'm not wrong, it's by the same company behind Essence Cosmetics. That's all I know for now.
Here's what I picked up:

Catrice Made To Stay Long-Lasting Eyeshadow in 070 Mauvie Star ~  It's a shimmery blend of mauve-taupe, quite similar to MAC Frozen Violet Pro Longwear Paintpot. There are about 6-8 gorgeous shades, and it was tough to pick just one. Price: Rs.420.

Catrice Multi Colour Blush in Strawberry Frappucino ~ So Pretty! I've only swatched the tester of this, and it's nice. I wanted a dupe for MAC Cream Soda Blush (Archie's Girls Collection), and I think the 3rd shade in this is quite similar. There's another Brown/Nude kind of shade called Iced Caramel Macchiato that I also liked, and will pick up next time. Price: Rs.480.

Catrice Eyebrow Stylist in 020 Date With Ash-ton ~ An ash brown. I've already worn it, and I think it's gonna be my go-to eyebrow product from now on. Also available in other darker shades. Price: Rs.300

Catrice Welcome To Las Vegas Lashes ~ These are from a Limited Edition Collection called 'Welcome To Las Vegas'. Price: Rs.340.

Where? Le Marche Supermarket, Gurgaon.

Le Marche has a few more outlets in Delhi, including one in Vasant Vihar Community Center.

Let me find out where else they've put counters in Delhi and anywhere else, and I will let you all know when I know more! If any of you have spotted it somewhere, do tell!

 You can visit Catrice website HERE, if you want to check out their products.

  
P.S: Since most Indian cosmetics brands are being very hi-fi with their pricing these days, let's all support these affordable European brands, so they're here to stay! :)

  5. Ooh CZ Catrice is a brand I've heard great things about, esp. their nail-polishes. They make some amazingly pretty neons and pastels- do pick up some next time, and put up the pics here for us to drool over. And I totally agree with what you said in the last para! ;-)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
