Collection: Catrice Nymphelia

I love warm, soft colors. They really compliment my (and a lot of people’s) skintone and they always look fresh. This may be the reason why I’m in love with Catrice’s new Limited Edition: Nymphelia!

What Catrice says:
Soft and feminine yet strong and sensual – this is the perfect description for the world of nymphs. A mysterious world that hovers between nature and mysticism – a world shaped by goddesses and embodied by natural forces. This is reflected in the color scheme of the Limited Edition “Nymphelia” by CATRICE. Warm red, orange and brown shades from the forest combined with green and nude tones bring the spring season to life in February and March 2012. The result: a natural yet modern and sensual make-up collection inspired by the international catwalks. The ideal make-up for delicate but strong ladies. Nymphelia – mystical and mythical.

Let’s take a look at the products 🙂

Lashes To Kill Mascara Black-Green Eye-Opening Effect Mascara
What Catrice Says:
This mascara guarantees incredible volume, sensational length and a unique curve for your lashes. The top-selling CATRICE Lashes to Kill Mascara in an unbelievably deep black-green for amazing eyes. Our conclusion: it’s a must-have for powerful styles. Available in 01 Black-Green.
Suggested retail price: €3.99

What Vanillaa says:
Hmm, green mascara? Original, that’s for sure! Not for me, though. I like extreme looks, but I can aso add some green pigment on top of my lashes, to make them look green. The mascara has to be replaced after three months of use anyway, so using a pigment is much easier!

Lashes To Mystify
What Catrice says:
The Lashes to Mystify give you sensual, expressive lashes. Inspired by nature, they have little feathers for a light, mystical touch. Combined with the deep colors of the Smokey Eyes Set and forest green eyeliner, they perfectly complement the eye make-up. Available in Lashes to Mystify.
Suggested retail price: €3.99

What Vanillaa says:
I like these lashes, they’re really cool for a photoshoot or a party. They also remind me of the Make Up Forever feather lashes, so this is a great cheap alternative! 🙂

Eye Liner Pen
What Catrice says:
Mountains, forests and meadows – the Nearly Black Eyeliner Pen is based on the green of nature. With its mysterious dark green shade, it ensures irresistible and mystical moments. The felt-tip offers ideal color dispersion and guarantees an accurate eye line that lasts for hours without smudging. Ready for ultimate perfection? Available in 060 Black Green.
Suggested retail price: €2.99

What Vanillaa says:
Uhhh, I have to confess I don’t own any green eyeliner! I like it though, so I might as well buy it 😀


Intensif’Eye Wet & Dry Shadow
What Catrice says:
The handmade marbled Baked Eye Shadows each consist of three colors for a particularly luminous and multi-dimensional look. The interaction of brown and green shades ensures a sensual look with a powerful touch. The Intensif’eye Wet&Dry Shadows can be applied dry or moist. Applied dry, they create subtle effects and when moist, the Eye Shadows have a more intense color application and a brighter effect. Available in 020 Charly’s Chocolate Factory & 040 Have You Seen Alice?.
Suggested retail price: €3.79

What Vanillaa says:
I really like the look of these, but I doubt that the pigmentation will be good. The colors are a bit boring too, in my honest opinion..

Smokey Eyes Set
What Catrice says:
Mysterious, smokey, full of effects: mystical, light Smokey Eyes in perfection. Four optimally aligned green shades and the professional double applicator with a sponge for eyeshadow and a brush for eyeliner guarantee a natural-looking, sensual eye make-up – for every occasion! Available in 050 Love, Peas & Harmony.
Suggested retail price: €4.49

What Vanillaa says:
Green! Oh how I love green eyeshadow 😀 If the pigmentation is good, this is a must-have for me 🙂

Unbeleaf‘Able Blush
What Catrice says:
The marbled Baked Powder Blush makes your skin look natural and fresh thanks to its composition of three warm shades – red, orange and nude. The result: a fresh and radiant complexion. Available in 01 Dancing Nymphs.
Suggested retail price: €4.49

What Vanillaa says:
Ohhh, this blush is amazingly pretty! Must.own.this.ASAP!*

Lip Colour Cream
What Catrice says:
Irresistible shine effects for your lips: the Lip Colour Creams in three soft red shades give your lips a wonderfully natural shine. The pleasant creamy texture pampers your lips for an eye-catching look. Available in 01 Spring Kiss, 02 Blossom & 03 Nymph’s Glow.
Suggested retail price: €3.79

What Vanillaa says:
Pretty, that’s all I can say about these. I think I will get them all three 😉


Ultimate Nail Lacquer
What Catrice says:
Ultimate long-lasting texture, ultimate coverage, ultimate shine – the nail polish shades of Nymphelia are inspired by the nature and mysticism of the world of nymphs. Warm tones like bright red, brown and mossy green are complemented by a limited, fascinating and deep green reminiscent of a mystical pool of water. These rich colors ensure a lovely contrast to the elegant soft nude shade and give your make-up a special nymph-like look. The new extra-broad brush guarantees an even more professional color application on the entire nail with just one stroke of the brush. Available in 01 Be Pool, 670 It’s Rambo No. 5, 690 Fred Said Red, 710 Dulce & Havanna & 830 Salmon & Garfunkel.
Suggested retail price: €2.49

What Vanillaa says:
These polishes look really pretty, especially the salmon one. I can’t wait to see swatches!

Extra information:
The following products will be added to Catrice’s permanent collection in February 2012:
Eye Liner Pen – 060 Black Green;
Intensif’Eye Wet & Dry Shadows – 020 Charly’s Chocolate Factory & 040 Have You Seen Alice?;
Smokey Eyes Set – 050 Love, Peas & Harmony;
Ultimate Nail Lacquers – 670 It’s Rambo No. 5, 690 Fred Said Red, 710 Dulce & Havanna & 830 Salmon & Garfunkel.

Overall:
Again, as with a lot of Catrice’s Limited Editions, I’m in love! These colors are so warm, soft & beautiful and they really suit me. I really like the packaging as well, especially those lipglosses! I can’t wait to try out these products, I think this will become a popular Limited Edition. What I don’t really understand though, is that some of the products are also being added to Catrice’s standard collection, which makes the term ‘Limited Edition’ a little misleading perhaps.. Oh well, I like the collection anyways!

Catrice Nymphelia is exclusively sold at Kruidvat and Trekpleister (the Netherlands), from half February until half March 2012.

What do you think about this warm collection? Do you need something, or are you going to skip everything?

Your beauty addict,
Natasja

  1. I think the collection is a bit so so for me..
    BUT! I am reallllly curious about the baked blush! Think I’m going to get that one.
    Also the coral looking lippie, Blossom, is a must-look-at for me 😉

  2. Ahh sorry about that, my english is terrible and I`m really not comfortable to speak english :/.

    Cranberry and Plumage is already on my “wanted-list”. I had Woodwinked but It looked terrible on me, but I know it`s a big favourite for MAC-fans.

    • Oh that’s fine, no worries 😉 Oh really? That sucks! I just bought it (for my Christmas look) and I think it’s gorgeous.. Too bad that you can’t make it work on yourself!

Tell me what you think!
