Show Your Lips Some Love With New Affordable Lip Products From Catrice

I recently did a Full Face Using All Catrice Products as it was a newer brand to Canada (just starting coming to Shopper's Drug Mart a couple of months ago) and I was really excited to try their products out! And, I have to say, there were some seriously impressive products that I tried - I know the foundation was an instant favourite!

So, when this adorable little "lip care" package arrived from Catrice, I couldn't wait to give everything a try (perfect timing too as my usual lip mask had ran out and I was hoping to find a replacement in here!)


What's great is everything in the Catrice lip line is between $7 and $10 - they are a really well priced drugstore line (found at Shoppers or Beauty Boutique online, which you know I love because you can collect and use PC points there!) Catrice is a cruelty-free brand as well - something to note if you only shop cruelty free.

Catrice Lip Plumping Mask ~ $9.99 CAN. Bye Bye Chapped Lips! This Catrice moisturizing lip mask is enriched with hyaluronic acid to softens and visibly volumize the lips. Use it overnight when lips need a little extra TLC or throughout the day for a shiny finish.

This mask can be used day or lip for extra moisture. I haven't ever used a plumping mask overnight. This is a tingly formula for a lip plumping mask, but not overly so - on the more extreme end, I find the Too Faced one tingles and stings quite a bit, where this is a more balm formula so it goes on smooth and offers a medium amount of tingle to the lips. It does add a visibly plumped look and I thought it was pretty softening too. I don't often use a lip plumper as they can be too much, where this one is not so I will actually use it! 

Catrice Lip Treatment ~ $9.99 CAN. Pampered Pout! The Catrice Lip Treatment is a creamy lip balm enriched with shea butter to provide intensive moisture. Can be used before going to bed as a lip mask.

This was the lip product that I was hoping would replace my nightly lip mask, that I just finished and it's done a pretty good job so far. It's a little stiffer formula than I anticipated; but, it does warm up nicely and then apply in a nice thick coat to the lips. I've worn it overnight and find that it does a pretty good job keeping my lips moisturized and hydrated and it's fully absorbed by the morning with no left over residue! While it might not does as amazing of a job as my Laneige lip mask, for less than half the price, it's a good alternative! 

Catrice Lip Oil ~ $9.99 CAN. Smooth Operator. Regenerate lips with Catrice's Lip Oil treatment. The transparent oil is formulated with almond oil to moisturize and smooth lips. Use alone for a pampered pout or use before lipstick to hydrate lips.

I'm a fan of lip oils and this one was really interesting because it has a dropper style applicator - I've only ever used a roll on or doe foot applicator. This does make it a little difficult to apply it directly to the lips, so I've been applying it to my finger and then to my lips which is easy enough. I love almond oil and it makes it smell great too! I thought this worked well!

Catrice Coconut Balm ~ $7.99 CAN. Coconut Kiss! This Catrice nourishing lip balm is enriched with coconut oil, argan oil and vitamin E, leaving lips moisturized with the scent of tropical coconuts.

I love the smell of coconuts, so this is such a good smelling balm. And, it is moisturizing on the lips - no complaints that the formula is nice. But, this lip balm is super white - it definitely leaves a white cast over the lips, which makes it really hard to wear out. I will use it as a home balm though, so it's not wasted! 

Catrice Sugar Scrub and Balm ~ $7.99 CAN. Pout primer! Exfoliate, soothe and smooth with Catrice's Lip Sugar Scrub and Balm. The pampering sugar formula quickly melts leaving lips perfectly primed and baby soft. 

This is a pretty gentle lip scrub in a stick and it was okay - I'm not the best person to judge these formulas as I just don't like lip scrubs in a tube form. There is a just something about it - I prefer something a little grainier that I can scrub in quick and rinse off. This one was okay and if you like these more gentle scrubs in a stick, you'd probably like this one. Just not a formula for my preferences!

Catrice Power Plumping Gel Lipstick ~ $9.99 CAN. Perfectly kissable! This Catrice lipstick is enriched with moisturizing hyaluronic acid, this high-shine lipstick has a lightweight gel texture and provides medium to high coverage. Lips feel smooth and are visibly fuller.

These lipsticks are a new, gel texture high-shine formula. I have to say, I like the packaging - and that actually goes for this whole line, it doesn't feel cheap at all - really sturdy and good quality. I love the "Be Brave" stamped in to the lipstick too for a nice added touch. 


The shades I have in the Power Plumping Gel Lipsticks are 070 "For The Brave" - a bright, medium pink and 090 "The Future is Femme" a bold red.

Here is "For The Brave" on - it's quite a bright shade, but the formula applies on the lips really smoothly and it is pretty comfortable to wear. I find it wears off in an average time (a couple of hours, maybe less if eating, but I did eat with this on and it wasn't a mess). It does leave a slight tint look to the lips as it wears off, which I like and find it makes lipstick wear off easier.

Here is "The Future is Femme" on the lips - I really loved this shade. It is a bright shade, but it looks nice on. It's a really comfortable formula to apply and wear - I was actually a little worried that it would smudge or move around and it didn't which is great. It has a nice, glossy finish with a medium coverage - I think this formula is going to be perfect to wear for Spring and Summer!

Overall, I'm really happy with the formula of these products! I like Catrice prices and accessibility and I think they are delivering some great products at great prices - plus, these don't look like $8 products - they did a good job on the packaging too! 

Have you tried Catrice yet? What is your favourite from the brand?
