Review: Catrice Absolute Rose eyeshadow

Last week I reviewed the Chocolate Nudes eyeshadow palette by Catrice (you can read it here). This week I’ll be reviewing its sister: Absolute Rose. This palette contains 6 shades, just like the Chocolate Nudes one. The packaging is the same, a black plastic casing with a clear plastic lid. The only difference there is that the letters on Chocolate Nudes is gold and the letters on Absolute Rose are pink. It comes with the same double ended brush/sponge applicator.palette-dicht-web

Whereas Chocolate Nudes has three matte shades, Absolute Rose only has two. From left to right the colours go from light to dark: the first one being a matte pale pastel pink, the second one a satin baby pink, the third one a satin old pink, the fourth one a satin shimmer cold pink, the fifth one a matte cold pastel purple and the sixth and last one a dark warm purple with small glitters in it.palette-web

I’d recommend using a primer beneath the shadows, as the pigmentation varies between the different shades. As you can see on the swatches (where I have put a primer on first) the pigmentation is fairly good. The colours are buildable, so you can make it more pigmented if you want.swatches-web

I have blue eyes and a purple toned colour is a great way to make the blue stand out, but I’m always a little apprehensive when using pink coloured eyeshadow, as it can make your eyes look irritated or inflamed. I have light skin, so redness can easily be spotted and seen as unhealthy. But apart from maybe the baby pink, I don’t really have to worry about my eyes looking irritated, so this palette is great for me to use.

What do you think of pink colours for eyeshadow? Are you apprehensive like me, or does this problem not apply to you? Let me know in the comments!
