Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation (review & swatches)

The hype about this foundation is real, it stole the show in the drugstore world without a doubt! I was wondering why so I bought it, tried it out and today I am giving you a review of the new Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation.


Catrice is such an affordable but yet a pretty good brand in my eyes! However, I have never tried a foundation from their factory. Not that long ago they launched the new foundation which created a crazy hype all over the beauty world – I HAD to see why!

Packaging, Price & Shades

The foundation comes in a surprisingly high quality glass bottle with a dropper. Yes, a dropper (some high end brands could learn from this one) which is probably my favourite way to take the product out of its container. It is so easy to work with it and I give that a huge plus. The foundation retails for 7,50 Euros (in all bigger drugstores) and for that price you will get 30 ml of it. Sounds great!

When it comes to the shades, there are only four which makes it really hard to choose and could leave you without this foundation due to lack of your undertone shade. You can see all the shades here. I truly hope the Catrice is currently working on enlarging the shade range. I got mine in 030 Sand Beige which is maybe a bit too dark in the theory but actually blends pretty well with my skin tone.

Texture & Coverage

Catrice promises matifying effect provided by non-oily texture and a second-skin effect with this foundation. It is not too thick which I like, very easy to spread and it doesn’t dry fast which gives you time to blend it in nicely. It can also be built up easily with another layer! The coverage is middle to full with the first layer (you can see it on the photos below). It will cover completely most of the colour mismatches and lighter blemishes and partly some greater redness or inflamed parts, which I find totally satisfying. 

On the skin

After applying the foundation, my skin looked really great! Nice coverage, mate, well blended in but also with a very light feeling on my face, zero heaviness and the “mask feeling”. I just really liked it! 3 to 4 hours later the foundation is definitely still on, with a bit of a shine on my forehead and a tiny caking effect on my chin, nothing too bad and nothing I couldn’t fix quickly. At the end of the day, I am shiny on my forehead, which is an occurrence with most of the foundations, but the rest of the face looks still representable with a bit of “foundation gathering” around the chin area. No melting and no disappearance.

To buy or not to buy?

I was pleasantly surprised, I have to admit – I was super sceptical since I haven’t bought a foundation of that price. I do think it is more suitable for normal to combination skin than to dry (it could emphasise the dryness). All in all, nice middle coverage, light feeling on the skin and you can be calm for a good part of the day. If you are searching for a foundation on the budget with these qualities, I definitely recommend it!

Pakiranje & Nijanse

Puder je pakiran u iznenadjujuce kvalitetnu bocica s kapaljkom. Da, kapaljkom (neki skuplji brendovi bi mogli ponesto nauciti iz ovog primjera), koja je moj omiljeni mini alat jer je rad s njom super jednostavan i tu sam se odmah odusevila. Cijena pudera je 56,00 kn u svim drogerijama (DM, Muller…) i za tu cijenu dobit cete 30 ml. Zvuci odlicno!

Moram se dotaknuti i nijansi, s obzirom da ih je samo 4 sto definitivno otezava situaciju biranja i moguce je da necete naci svoju idealnu. Dostupne nijanse pogledajte ovdje, a ja se toplo nadam da Catrice trenutno radi na razvijanju sire palete. Ja sam uzela 030 Sand Beige koja mi je u teoriji malo pretamna, ali uzivo se stvarno dobro stapa s mojim tonom koze (bacite pogled na fotkice ispod).

Tekstura & Prekrivanje

Catrice obecaje mat efekt pomocu teksture koja ne sadrzi ulja i osjecaj “druge koze”. Ta tekstura je vrlo lagana, ne pregusta, lako se nanosi i ono sto mi se svidja – ne susi se prebrzo pa imate vremena lijepo izblendati, a onda i nadograditi. Prekriva zaista uspjesno, rekla bih srednje do potpuno. Sakrit ce sve nejednakosti boja na licu i manje problemcice, a djelomicno neka veca crvenila ili upaljene dijelove, sto smatram stvarno zadovoljavajucim!

Ponasanje na kozi

Nakon sto nanesem puder kistom, koza izgleda stvarno odlicno! Dobra prekrivenost, mat efekt je tu, lijepo se stopi s kozom, a usput imate zaista onaj lagan osjecaj na licu, ni traga betoniranju. 3 do 4 sata kasnije puder je definitivno i dalje na licu, malo sjaja se pojavilo na celu i oko brade su neke sitne naznake skupljanja, no nista strasno i nista sto se ne moze brzinski popraviti. Na kraju dana, ipak mi se celo sjaji, sto sam i ocekivala nakon prvih naznaka i dogadja mi se i s drugim puderima, ali ostatak lica izgleda reprezentativno uz  manje dijelove oko brade gdje se puder “skupio”. Ni traga elementima topljenja ili nestanka.

Kupiti ili ne?

Ja sam iskreno ugodno iznenadjena, moram priznati – bila sam dosta skepticna s obzirom da dugo nisam kupila ovako povoljan puder. Mislim da je svakako pogodniji za normalnu do kombiniranu kozu nego za vrlo suhu (mogao bi istaknuti suhe dijelove). Sve u svemu, odlicna pokrivenost, lagana tekstura i mozete biti mirni dobar dio dana. Ako trazite povoljan tekuci puder s tim elementima, svakako preporucam!

    Nemam ovaj puder jer nije za moju suhu kozu i moram priznati da me bas ljuti sto drogerije na nas prave suhokozce uopce ne misle :( Na tvojoj kozi super izgleda i stvarno steta sto nemaju vise boja jer realno 4 stvarno nisu dovoljan raspon. Inace Kiko ima puder slicnog pakiranja i jako je dobar (iako duplo skuplji-ali meni je uz svakodnevno koristenje trajao 5-6mjeseci)

    1. Apsolutno se slazem s tobom! Jesi probala Maybelline Fit me? On je bas za suhu kozu, a i Revlon Colorstay za suhu isto nije los, makar naravno ovisi o tome kako ti odgovara :) Kiko obozavam, pudere nisam probala, ali imaju super stvari! ☺️❤️

  4. Ja sam bila skepticna na pocetku zbog ovog pudera, i stvarno smo imali cudan odnos. Malo smo se voljeli, malo ne. ali na kraju kada sam otkrila najbolji nacin za nanosenje, on je za mene odlican puder za svaki dan. Stvarno je odlican omjer cijene i kvalitete, te se evo spremam kupiti drugu bocicu :D Svakako ima od mene thumbs up!
