Catrice Ultimate Stay Lipstick ($7.99) should be added to your shopping list if you’re looking for a pigmented satiny-matte that’s pigmented and crazy inexpensive! Hello, under eight bucks means you can haul several shades without breaking the bank.
Here’s my thoughts on this rather fab lipstick!
You gotta love Catrice Cosmetics! They never fail to produce some really great, affordable products that keep you coming back for more. Every since Catrice has launched in the US exclusively at Ulta, I’ve been slowly working my way through their vast catalog of inexpensive, budget friendly makeup pieces and loving everything I’ve tried.
Catrice Ultimate Stay Lipstick is no different. These slick black barrel lipsticks look like you paid $20 bucks for ’em but they’ll set you back a mere $7.99 each. Catrice has them available in 12 gorgeous shades. Each shade is 0.10 oz in size and has absolutely no flavor or fragrance.
At first application these are a little dense but with continued use you’ll find the formula applies much, much smoother. The first time I tried them the texture was a bit draggy but as they warm up you’ll find the consistency is lighter and much creamier. The satiny-matte formula isn’t hydrating nor drying and has a light feel on lips with a smooth, even finish and excellent pigmentation on a single swipe. The colors are deep, rich, and provide excellent color pay off or at least the two I tried were! These wore for about four hours each on my lips so not exactly an “Ultimate Stay” but still a nice wear for such an inexpensive formula.
Anytime I try anything from Catrice I’m constantly left shaking my head at their prices! I’m still in disbelief these are a mere $7.99 each.
If you’re looking for a comfortable lipstick formula sans shimmer and glitter with a satiny-matte finish that isn’t drying, these Catrice Ultimate Lipsticks fit the bill beautifully!
