Picture this: a makeup haven which comes along with mouth watering assorted canap├ęs, champagne, photographers and a view to die for at Level 22, Portomaso Tower. Nope, this isn't a sensational dream I had last night; this is what my fellow bloggers and myself got treated to last Thursday at the Catrice Cosmetics PR Event!

We made our way to the sofas at the far end of the lounge area (or should I say some 7 acres of land?!) and sat down to get to admire the view and take in what was going around on the night. Catrice - sister brand of Essence! and available in Malta and Gozo thanks to Pharma.MT - has just launched 2 new collections: Celtica and a second Limited Edition collection called Eve in Bloom. You can imagine my excitement when I spotted a number of products nicely arranged on our tables and realised I could swatch and test them!! In fact, products were available all over the place for everyone to see and try out (makeup HAVEN, told you! ;))

- Celtica has some nice soft pastels and a number of shimmering metallic eye products.
I'm mostly curious about their multicolour highlighter and 3D artwork mini-kits for nails -

- Eve in Bloom is a line filled with bright reds and corally shades
and includes some great eye shadow duo's which I just can't wait to try out!! -
 

In the upcoming weeks, I will be reviewing a number of products from the two collections mentioned above, but in the meantime I just wanted to share with you some photos I snapped on the big eve! So, without further ado (ok, maybe I'm overdoing it here, but looking at the photos for the zillionth time still makes me smile and re-list a mental note of the products I intend adding to my makeup collection :D) here are the photos of the products which struck me the most... :D

Oh, and one last thing; the gorgeously packaged, colourful and pigmented products I've been testing these past few days do come at a very affordable price. So do watch out this space for looks and reviews of some products from Catrice 2014 line to see how it goes ;)
 
In the meantime, feel free to check Catrice Malta facebook page here - totally worth it!
