Hey! Guess who! Yes, meeeee!! But, it’s me + a side of #AngelasAirMail. What the heck does that even mean? I got Nail Mail! From far away, and it had a whole bunch of interesting things in it that I’ve never played in before. Here, have a look!
catrice royal lavendera swatches
This morning, out of all the things in the nail mail package, this bottle from German company Catrice Cosmetics hollered, “Paint with me!” What’s a girl to do?
Catrice Royal LavendERA (above). A stunning pale cross between lavender and lilac laced with über-fine shimmerz, this is from the Catrice Victorian Poetry Holiday 2016 Collection. That’s 3 coats (because I do very, very thin coats) and you can’t see the stealth shimmer at all because it’s matte. But the shimmer makes it a matte with life. She’s soft, pretty, springy, and soothing. I don’t know if there’s a better word than “lovely.”
The brush in there is a paddle and it’s a good one. Surprisingly lush, it holds just a touch more polish than I thought it would, but the shape is perfect. It fits my fingers like it was made for me, and makes this matte application wickedly easy.
Hmmm… I wonder what it’ll look like if I slap on some top…
Catrice Royal Lavendera w Top Coat (above). Oooh! So shiny! And a little shimmery! But then, what if I slap this other thing I just bought over top of the topcoat…
ILNP Rosewater over Catrice Royal Lavendera (above). Aaaaaah! Holographic shiny! Squeeeee!!!
So there you are fellow nail nerdies! It’s my first foray into #AngelasAirMail and so far, I can’t help thinking it’s like Angela knows me. I feel like she musta stuck this into the box thinking, “I’ll betcha Karen would LOVE this!” And I do. Many thanks for the wonderful gift, Ang! And also, Happy Birthday!! 🎂
Oh. On account of the limited edition-ness of it, I have zero idea if (or where) you can get this pretty Catrice (as mentioned earlier, you can find the makeup at ulta.com). But I do know you can get you a bottle of ILNP Rosewater from the same place I did: ILNP.com.
