Beauty | Catrice Big City Life 2.0

I’ve been blogging about many luxury makeup brands lately, but the fact is that I enjoy budgetproof brands just as much. Catrice has to be one of my favorite shelves to check out whenever I pay a visit to Kruidvat. The price/quality ratio is simply mindblowing. Remember the Big City Life Berlin palette I bought a while ago? Well, that one turned out to be one of my makeup palettes I use the most, and whenever I’m wearing a look I created from this palette; I get complimented on it – A LOT. So my dears, it’s my pleasure to announce that Catrice is having another spin at the Big City Life wheel, and will be releasing 3 more makeup collections!

Each Big City Life make-up palette retails for € 7,99 and contains six powder eye shadows, two shades of blush, a duo-applicator and a black mini-Kajal. Just like before there are going to be 3 matching nail polishes available for € 2,49 with high opacity, durability and brilliant shine. I wasn’t fond of the nail polish I got, so I hope the formula will be better this time.

Paris Collection
Paris, je t’aime! City of love, fashion capital and seat of the big fashion labels – Paris loves the trend and the trend loves Paris.

Six eyeshadows in trendy rosé, nude or gray-brown colors in shimmering and matte textures. The perfectly coordinated shades can be professionally blended with the duo applicator. The black eyeliner emphasizes the eye make-up, two colors Rouge in Apricot and Rose set fresh accents. 

The matching Ultimate Nail Laquer in subtle pink guarantees the Paris-look to his finger tips. 

San Francisco Collection
Cosmopolitan and breathtakingly beautiful. San Francisco’s city unites the American feeling and comfort. That makes Frisco so unique and full of contrasts like no other city. Inspired by these contradictions – the makeup palette “The San Francisco Collection.”

With the six eyeshadow colors you’ll find cool petrol on warm nude tones. The textures are either matte or subtle shimmer – perfect interplay of opposites, for a professional eye makeup. The two shades of Rouge in intense apricot and rosewood give a fresh complexion.

For urban finish the Ultimate Nail Lacquer in trendy provides petroleum. 

Shanghai Collection
Pulsating. Mysterious. Of extremes. This is where you’ll find the fashion scene and trendsetters who wear their very own, unique style in the world. Just like the makeup palette “The Shanghai Collection” is.

The six eye shadows in bright gold, brown and black shades nearly allow customized eye make-up as the make-up professionals. Two peach-colored blushes complement the look.

Gold for Nails: The Ultimate Nail Lacquer provides the stylish touch of the flamboyant styling. 


Big City Life 2.0 ft Paris, San Francisco and Shanghai will be available from October – November. Ladies if you want these, you better mark your agenda’s and be prepared to stalk your local Kruidvat store because – if it’s anything like the previous collection – these are going to be flying off the shelves! I’m going for the romantic Paris palette. What are you going for?
