Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer (010 Porcellain, 020 Light Beige)

Last fall Catrice Cosmetics released a line of concealers and since they were promising high coverage I was immediately interested. I need a reliable product to cover red marks from blemishes and since my skin is fair these can really stand out. I picked up both shades when they were initially released and late last summer I was mixing both to get a matching shade for my skin, while I used the lighter one as a brightening under eye concealer and in some other areas.

These come in a pretty standard packaging for a concealer, a transparent plastic tube with a black lid and contain 5 ml of product (though the tube makes it seem like there's more inside). There is a doe foot wand applicator for ease of use, and once you use the concealer up, there's still some product left at the bottom. It has a weird slightly chemical-fruity scent, which isn't too noticeable as you're applying it onto the skin. It has a thicker and creamy consistency (but doesn't feel heavy) that dries to a matte finish.
At the moment mixing both, or using the darker shade on it's own, is out of the question, so I'm only using the lighter shade. As soon as you apply it to the skin it oxidizes, but don't let that scare you, because once you start blending it in (using a sponge or fingers seems to do the best job) it gets half a shade/shade lighter again. On my skin it currently leans slightly too pink and can sometimes look odd. I still like using it on my under eye area the best, but it needs to be set with a powder so it doesn't crease, but if the powder is too mattifying it can also make the concealer look too dry. This has medium, but buildable coverage, just make sure to work in thin layers so it doesn't cake up (it usually needs two thin layers for covering blemishes). The lasting power is ok, by the end of the day concealer is still there, but can crease under the eyes and look aging.
Swatches and comparisons:
- Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in 010 Porcellain (light pinker shade; it's about a shade lighter that Maybelline Fit Me in 15, altough it doesn't appear so in the photo)
- Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in 020 Light Beige (light-medium warm yellow shade)
EDIT: For spring 2016 Catrice decided to add another lighter (!) shade and you can find a comparison of all three shades + more swatches in this post.
For more swatches make sure to also check Petra's post, who tested all the claims about this concealer's coverage and longevity.
For the price this is certainly a very decent concealer with nice coverage and probably also one of the lightest ones, shade wise, available at our drugstores. They're available here online.

  1. Moj najljubši drugstor korektor :). Dobra cena in zadovoljiva prekrivnost. Je pa mene tudi na začetku prestrašilo kako je oksidiral na sliki. Jaz imam pozimi tudi 01, poleti mi je pa 02 v redu, ko dobim malo posončene polti :).

    Hvala za omembo ;).

    1. Glede na ceno je res dober, upam pa da bodo naredili še kakšen vmesni odtenek s to formulo, ker je bil pomoje kar uspešen izdelek. Np :)
