A really lovely weekend was rounded off to perfection yesterday, when a trip to my local chemist revealed this heaving stand of gorgeous Catrice goodies.
I’ve been hearing so many great things about this brand recently and only own one paltry eyeshadow set, so I immediately set about putting that right and snapped up an Ultimate Colour lipstick in Pink Me Up, nail polish in Blue Cara Ciao and a single eyeshadow in 060, I Love Champagne.
And while I was at it, I decided to share the love by picking up a few bits for you guys, too:
Here we have three pieces from the limited edition Urban Baroque range: smooth lipstick in #1, Marie Antoinette, nail polish in C02, Rock Barock, and Absolute Duo eyeshadow in Fleur de Lis.
While I haven’t swatched ‘em, these all strike me as very pretty, natural shades – the lipstick looks like a sheer, peachy pink colour and the nail and eye colours are wearable nudes with a hint of mauve.
Beauty Addict has some great pictures and swatches of the shadow duo, while Everythingism.net has a good post about the lippie.

To get your hands on ‘em, you just need to be following Fluff and Fripperies on either Facebook or Twitter (see buttons to the right, and tell me which one in your comment) and by email, using the shiny new box to the right of the blog, above the Irish Blog Awards button. Then just leave me a comment to say what you’d like to read more of on Fluff and Fripperies. I’ll pick a winner using Random. Org on Monday, 11th April, and the competition is open in Ireland and the UK.
Good luck, and thanks for reading!
