 THE VERDICT:

Presenting two of my super faves from Catrice: Waterproof Powder and Smoothing Primer! These are miracle products for oily skin and I can't believe they're affordable yet perform really well!


CATRICE PRIME AND FINE WATERPROOF MATTIFYING POWDER AND SMOOTHING REFINER IN DETAIL

Waterproof Powder is an all- around powder for retouching or blotting; Smoothing Primer helps smooth skin surface, conceal pores and lines, and extends the wear time of foundation.

Waterproof Powder has one shade and it's translucent; it has a texture that's between dry and soft, and I noticed that it kind of blurs the look of prominent pores and lines too.

Smoothing Primer has a soft cream- like texture; a bit putty- like, but when worked onto the skin, it feels just like a moisturizer with a bit of silicone feel.

Both products are unscented.

Look how the primer has blurred out my obvious pores and nasty blackheads! Face felt really smooth with the primer and it has improved the adherence and look of foundation on my skin. You just have to blend this properly on the skin though for it to completely go invisible on the skin.

Waterproof Mattifying Powder used as setting powder

I use this powder to set my makeup and most especially, to blot oily skin; the pressed form makes it a little less concentrated compared to loose powder so you will have to dust it over your skin for a couple of times to set foundation properly; a fluffy, loose brush should get the deed done quickly. However, it leaves a hint of white cast so I wouldn't have myself photographed with this on!

The powder keeps makeup intact for hours and even extends the wear time of foundation. On oily skin, it keeps oil at bay for an additional hour. Personally, I love dusting this powder over finished makeup for a dash of waterproofing!

Catrice is quickly becoming my new favorite drugstore brand because of the two; if you have oily skin and you want to prolong your makeup longer, grab these two!
