Catrice Perfect Resist Make Up foundation is the last beauty purchase I made last week. I had heard about this brand in the past but I had never tried it before. Anyway, the shop where I always buy my makeup had some Catrice products on sale and this product was one of them. I was looking for a cheap makeup foundation so I decided to give it a try.
The product comes in a convenient pump bottle, which it is quite good, since most of budget foundations never comes with pump, and I personally prefer it because you can choose how much product you want on each application (I always tend to waste too much with the typical squeeze bottles).
When I first tried it out on my hand, I was absolutely delighted with the smell. It's light and it doesn't have a strong perfum, it reminds me more to a daily moisturizer scent than a makeup product.
The texture of this foundation is a little bit more creamy than others that I use. I have combined skin and I use free oil products which tend to be more liquid in their texture, so I was a bit dissapointed at first, thinking I would get an oily skin after I would use it. But nothing at all!
The product offers full coverage, but I had to use a foundation brush in some areas of my face, like the sides of my nose and T zone, where my pores are a little bit more dilated.
I chose number 030- "Perfect Sand", but there was two more colors available, all of them far too light for my skin tone. The colour I picked up was the darker from the range althought I would have picked a darker one if it would have been possible.
My general opinion of this foundation is good, about a 7 over 10. The quality is nice for a budget foundation, and I think it is a good option to use as daily make up foundation. I wouldn't say it lasts 24 hours (as the product claims), but it stays smooth and mate for a long time. In addition, if you apply some translucent powder the effect can last hours. The price is around 5€ for 30ml but I got a discount and got it for 1,99€, ridiculously cheap!
