Review: Catrice: Absolute Eye Colour in 010 Mars Attacks

I bought some products of the new and improved make-up line by Catrice a few weeks back, and I thought it was about time I show you the pics and swatches :D!

First up: Catrice Absolute Eye Colour in 010 Mars Attacks

This eye shadow duo contains a very shimmery dark green and a matte very light green that is almost a mint green without any hint of blue.

The packaging is really nice, much better than the packaging they had before.
It ain't fragile or difficult to open (like the MNY eye shadows are).
You get 3g of these fabulous eye shadow for around €3 (forgot the exact prize and can't find the receipt, sorry!).

When you look at the swatches, you see that the dark green is almost black-green:

It's much darker than I had expected, but nevertheless gorgeous!
On the left you see the dark colour lightly applied, in the middle the dark green applied normal, and on the right the light green applied normal.

The dark green is very dark and very pigmented.
The light green was not so pigmented, but it might be different used on an eye shadow base and used on my actual eye ;).

The eye shadows are soft and not too crumbly.
The colours are pretty, very pigmented and easy to blend.

I would rate the dark green a 9 and the light green a 6 (because it isn't that great!).

I would recommend this eye shadow duo for the dark green, since it's awesome.
Also, I love the name :D.
It's the name of a Tim Burton movie about aliens and it's pretty funny!

Stay tuned for some more reviews and swatches!

Until next time,
