today was a lovely day, great to swatch some eye shadows. I bought these two Catrice Velvet matt ones in January and I have been wearing them, not as much as I should but I think I can excuse myself because I recently bought so many of them.
The formula is great and I'm not quite sure why they had to discontinue them.

They are both nice and have a creamy consistency. No shimmer is present but they have more of a sateen finish, it makes them glow without the particles. I love them for that but when it comes to the specific colors I get really particular, they look quite different on the skin than they do in the pan.

Vanillaty Fair has that white/yellow base with a strong gold reflex, it looks nice on it's own or layered under some gold shimmery shades to give more coverage. I love using it but I can't say the same for the other shade.
Princess Matteleine looks flesh toned beige to me but somehow it turns more orange-y on my skin and specially on my lids. It makes me look like I'm sick or something. On it's own it really doesn't look flattering on me but I tried to wear it as a base color and it is fine and I'm sure I will be able to use it up, it's just not my favorite.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day
