Catrice Cucuba LE - A few swatches . . .

Hello, my lovelies!


Having a good weekend so far? I wanna show you some swatches today of the goodies I got from the Cucuba LE by Catrice. The polishes weren't all that special this time, but 2 of them still caught my eye and I also got the 2 eye liners from this collection, because I loooove liquid eye liners :D 
Here they are all together (+ another Catrice polish, that I will show you some other time :P)
First the polishes: 

C01 Sunny Side
This one is an orange polish with golden shimmer, which almost looks like little flakies! I used 2 coats, the application was very good although the polish is a little bit thick. I absolutely love this polish! It's such a warm and soft color and perfect for summer! I have to thank Taya, because without her gorgeous swatch I wouldn't have bought this polish ;) 

C02 Reggaeton
This one is an brown polish with silver-ish shimmer, a very interesting shade but so hard to capture on camera! Again I used 2 coats, the application was also very good and the formula wasn't to thick or to thin. The shimmer isn't very noticeable in real life, but it's still a pretty polish :) 

Now, let's look at the eye liners! 

01 Take It Mint
This liquid eye liner is a really bright mint shade and it looks gorgeous, but the application really disappointed me! I love eye liners because they're so easy to apply, but this one was a pain in the *** to apply! It's very watery and therefore not very opaque. I needed to paint the line 3 times, before it covered well enough!!

I wouldn't wear such a bright eye liner on it's own, but I really like to combine this kind of colors with black. It's more wearable that way, but still very eye-catching ;) 

02 Reggaeton
It's named just like the brown polish and it looks exactly like it, just a bit lighter! :) So it's a light brown with golden shimmer. This one wasn't as hard to apply as the other one, but it wasn't very opaque either. I think Catrice should ask Essence for some advise on how to create good eyeliners ;) I swear, Essence has the best liquid eye liners ever!

So that's all I got from this LE. Did you get something from this LE as well ? 
What do you like best?

Hope this post was helpful for some of you! 

Have a great weekend! xx

  11. Great polishes. Your nails are getting soooo long! The brown liner I'm kinda meh about but the other one is gorgeous, especially paired with the black. You need to do more makeup posts!
