Catrice Healthy Look Mattifying Powder was the first product that got my attention when I saw Catrice Fall Winter 2016 Collection (info, photos) in person. I rush to the store immediately to check out the new products, even though I knew they were permanent and when I saw this translucent powder I knew I had to have it. It comes in one universal shade and can be used as a setting or finishing powder.

Catrice Healthy Look Mattifying Powder (21.50 Lei / €4.45 for 9 g / 0.31 oz) comes in the shade No.010 Luminous Light and it adapts to every skin color, being also suitable for any skin type. It’s a compact mattifying powder with a translucent finish and a velvety texture that melts with the skin and adapts to all skin tones.Obviously at first I was attracted by its beautiful pattern and color combination of coral, beige and light nude which mixed together show a light peachy beige shade that adds freshness and luminosity to the skin while keeping a matte finish.
I like how smooth and fine it feels to the touch when I swatch it and how lightweight it feels on the skin when applied. It does kick off some excess powder when I’m swirling my brush into the pan. The harmony of shades gives my complexion a healthy look providing my face with a soft and matt finish. I’m a combination skin type so skipping the powder is not an option for me when I’m doing my makeup. I like to use Catrice Healthy Look translucent powder to set my foundation but I’ve also applied it right after my face lotion to keep my complexion from shining.
It’s a drugstore product so the price is really affordable while the quality is quite OK. It does its job of keeping my complexion shine free for a couple of hours and I like that it gives me a burst of freshness.
