Catrice Volumizing Lip Booster

So, you want a little volume, a bit of color, some nice shine? Catrice Volumizing Lip Booster has it all for under $4 bucks. Gotta love that right? I swear finding a budget friendly lipgloss is like finding a needle in a haystack! Drugstore lipgloss formulas tend to disappoint but Catrice always comes through!

Love this one!

Catrice Volumizing Lip Booster probably won’t be for everyone. This one contains menthol which might make sensitive users squirm but my lips don’t mind in the least! This little gloss comes housed in a square barrel that holds 0.16 oz of lipgloss for $4.99 (or take advantage of’s sale today as it is $3.47 per shade). The flat sponge applicator loads up with color very well and applies the gloss flawlessly to lips.

Catrice Nuts About Mary Volumizing Lip Booster

I tried out the shade Nuts About Marry which is a natural dusky rose. It isn’t full color coverage but it isn’t lazy about giving your lips a pretty rose finish. The color applies easily on my drier lips and leaves them with high shine finish. The formula does have a bit of a tingle but nothing I couldn’t handle. The texture isn’t sticky nor tacky and it feels lightly hydrating on my lips. It gave my lips a plush, shiny finish that was very pretty. I did notice a slight menthol citrus-y flavor but it seemed subtle to my mouth but deserves mentioning for sensitive users.

I’m always pretty pleased with Catrice’s lip products but I have to admit this is probably my favorite formula by far. Volumizing Lip Booster gives my lips a nice hint of color, plenty of shine, and a plush looks and feel!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
