Whiskers Universial Blush
5.0
Created with Sketch.

a month ago

Despite having a large blush collection, this is one of the few blushes I have managed to pan and repurchase. If you can't tell, it's my all-time favorite blush, and it always survives my declutters. Whiskers is a pressed blush that comes in a 36mm pan. It's a soft rosy pink with peach undertones and a luminous finish. I like that it has a very subtle gold shimmer to it instead of just heavy glitter. Its luminosity is also perfect for a glass skin look or a natural flush. It builds very well too, so if you wanted something more dramatic you can easily go in heavier. It's finely milled, adds shimmer and luminosity without emphasizing texture, layers well over other products and gives a gorgeous, natural looking flush to my face. I just really love blush! This formula is definitely in my top three favorites, and I had difficulty finding anything even close to it in my collection. It has a uniqueness to it that really adds to my collection. The only negative I can think of is that you can only buy it directly from Cat Cosmetics. I usually wait for a sale and free shipping because my orders are generally small ones (under 30 USD). I do most of my makeup shopping at Ulta, Nordstrom and CRC so I wish other retailers carried this brand just so I'm not making an order for a single product. They sell the blush in a compact too, but I just buy the refill version and store it in my magnetic palette. With 25% off I paid about 11 USD and it came packaged in sturdy plastic casing securely placed in a well padded box. I highly recommend this blush and I'm really surprised it's not talked about more, especially with the glass skin trend going full force right now. The formula, its warm, radiant finish, and shade are just fantastic. And if you wait for a sale you can get a really good price. Customer service was also very friendly.

Skin Double Foundation

What am I missing about this foundation that has everyone loving it so much? I love Cat Cosmetics, and I watch every tutorial video I can get my hands on, which is why I bought this foundation. Cat (Catherine Hickland) stressed that you have to buff it in, and man, I spent ALOT of time doing that. It still looked like I was wearing foundation in an obvious way, though the color was a pretty good match. I thought, maybe it will get better when I powder my face. Nope. I thought, maybe it will look better after I put everything else on. Nope. My impartial niece said she didn't think it looked good or bad, but that it was obvious I was wearing makeup. NOT the look I want to have. I'm going to keep trying this week, but if I can't decode it, back it will go. Breaks my heart, because I usually love her products.

Bronze Sculpt and Hi-Lighter Kit

Cat's latest palette (Summer 2016) is the Bronze, Sculpt, and Hi-Lighter Kit for Lips, Eyes, and Cheeks. You get a choice of either a Pink lipstain (pictured in the photo I posted), or in Copper. The palettes are magnetized, and most of the product contained within are available as refills! The only 2 that I have not seen refills for are the Cocoa Bronze Contour, and the Hi-Lite shade. Hopefully Cat will make them available, as I know I will run out of those two very quickly. Here is what you get: (top row) Catnip Bronzer, Whiskers blush, Cocoa Bronzer controur (bottom row) Espresso e/s, Hi-Lite Face Shimmer, Pink Lip Stain I will be reviewing each of the above products under their product pages. I will say that this is a MUST HAVE palette for anyone who loves a natural, healthy, casual to soft-glam type of look. Everything in this palette is just gorgeous. The colors blend beautifully. They are never harsh, yet look amazing whether you are fair or tanned (NC 45 I think is the deepest this palette would work for, imho). I love that I can basically put together my entire look with just this palette. The only things I need extra are eyeliner, mascara, and either a lip pencil or a lipstick, as I find the "lip stain" in this palette is more of a sheer gloss, and it does not cover my very pigmented lips. I like a much paler lip. I LUV her Rich lip gloss shade, and you do get that as part of the larger Get My Look Kit, which inclludes this Bronze, Sculpt, and Hi-Lighter palette, as well as a lot of other products! I really cannot say that I love any one particular product in this paletter over any other. ALL are fabulous! I will say that I am IN love with the two newest product additions: her Face Hi-Lite, and the Cocoa Bronze Contour! OMG, I would buy them separately in a heartbeat! On my NC 40 faux tanned skin, they are AMAZING. I am sure they will also look beautiful when I am at my paler NC25/30 olive skin. I travel quite a bit, and her multi purpose palettes are what I always carry with me. Her products are very high quality, and they never irritate my very sensitive eyes. And of course, her products are NOT tested on animals. :) Btw, the Espresso eyeshadow is gorgeous! It reminds me a bit of MAC Ground Brown, one of my all time fave brown shadows. Espresso also makes for a great brow color, in addition to a gorgeous eyeshadow shade. The only product in this palette that I was not totally in love with, is the pink "lip stain". I found this a bit toooooo sheer and glossy to be a stain. I rarely use lipgloss for this very reason. I don't like that greasy feel on my lips. However, over a matte lipstick, it is very pretty! Aside from that one issue, I luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv this palette so so so much! This palette, and her older Miracle Working Kit palette are my two alll time favorite makeup kits ever! The colors in this palette can go anywhere from a very all-natural type of look, to a soft Victoria Secret soft glam type of look. Or you can really amp it up with the Espresso eyeshadow, and create a very sexy smokey eye or cut-crease type of look. FABULOUS palette! LUV!
