Collection: Catrice Big City Life


My favorite capital city has to be New York. It’s such a pretty and one-of-a-kind city! My biggest dream is to travel to New York.. Oh how awesome would that be! To honor the capital cities of the world, Catrice will come out with a new limited edition: Big City Life!

What Catrice says:
Sydney, Berlin, London, New York – each metropolis stands out for its own personal charm and style. Trends are born on the streets of these fabulous cities! This passion for life has been interpreted four times – and captured in the most breathtaking make-up palettes of the season: the Limited Edition “Big City Life” by CATRICE gives every city its own look. So when the big city calls, we can experience it and capture its style from October to November 2011.

Each “Big City Life” make-up palette contains six powder eye shadows, two rouge shades as well as a professional duo-applicator to ensure simple and accurate application of eye make-up. The stylish must-have box is rounded off with a mini eye pencil to give your city look the perfect finish. The Ultimate Nail Lacquer, which is available separately, offers great coverage, durability and irresistible shine as well as eye-catching color – the pulse of each city. And thanks to the extra-broad brush, smooth application without streaks is even possible during a taxi ride to exciting places!

Suggested retail price palettes: €6.99
Suggested retail price nail polishes: €2.49


The Sydney Collection
What Catrice says:
Life in Sydney mainly takes place on the beach – and the beach parties are endless! A high-spirited mix of surfers, city beaus, tradition, culture and modern life.

Its essence: the warm colors of the sun setting on the horizon for a touch of casual urban chic: The six eye shadows in rosé, nude, taupe and brown shades with shimmering as well as matt effects meet upon two natural rouge versions in rosewood.

Create an added eye-catching effect with the Ultimate Nail Lacquer “Sydney”: it covers your nails in trendy taupe and makes it perfectly clear that Sydney is at the top of the global trend barometer!

What Vanillaa says:
I like this color combination, especially with the browns & purples. I find the nail polish color a little bit standard, but a girl can never have too many taupe polishes anyway 😉 But since Sydney is known for the beach-life, I would’ve chosen some beach-proof colors, such as aquas and blues.


The Berlin Collection
What Catrice says:
Berlin is booming! Fascinating, contrasting, raw and extraordinarily cool – the capital with a unique history creates its own trends, dances by its own rhythm and is proud of what it is. So are we!

Just as unconventional and fascinating: the six eyeshadow colors come in warm sand, brown, grey-blue and taupe shades – some with shimmering, others with matt effects – for a perfect autumn trend look!

The muted pink color of the matching Ultimate Nail Lacquer “Berlin” conveys a sense of cool understatement.

What Vanillaa says:
Oh, this are the perfect colors for me 😀 I really like this palette! I like the blush colors as well.


The London Collection
What Catrice says:
London is calling – and of course we are ready to answer! This city is a true fashion icon – its tradition, its trends, its looks, its pulse…London is such an irresistible hotspot that it captivates you instantly!

For your eye-make up, the London Collection goes for blue eyes in stark contrast to bright yellow and deep-black kajal. Absolutely lovely! Two rouge shades in rosé ensure a radiant, fresh complexion.

Yellow Press? Yellow polish! The soft yellow of the Ultimate Nail Lacquer “London” is an absolute must-have for your nails!

What Vanillaa says:
Yes, a yellow polish! I hope it will have good coverage. I’m very curious about the yellow and blue colors in the palette.


The New York Collection
What Catrice says:
New York, New York! This city never sleeps, so why should we? Urban life in the Big Apple between skyscrapers, VIPs and neon signs is way too tempting for that! If there is a place where dreams are sure to come true, it’s here!

The combination of six eyeshadows in blue, smokey turquoise and mauve is also a dream and totally captures the essence of New York’s energy-laden atmosphere! The two lively rouge shades give your New York look a fresh touch.

Intense, impulsive and totally hip. With the new pigeon-blue Ultimate Nail Lacquer “New York”, the horizon of this urban jungle seems close enough to touch…

What Vanilla says:
I like this palette as well! The combination of the darker colors really attracts me. I would’ve chosen a more spectacular nail polish color though, with glitters or something like that. After all, it’s NEW YORK Catrice! 😉

I really like this collection. The palettes look promising and the nail polishes are cool to match. I hope the eye shadow pigmentation is good! I’m curious about the colors of the included pencils and about the quality of the brush. I’m a little bit disappointed that they didn’t include a highlight color in each palette though.

Catrice Big City Life is sold at Kruidvat and Trekpleister (the Netherlands), in Oktober/November 2011.

What is your favorite capital city in the world? How do you like Catrice’s new collection?
