Perfect Summer Base Recipe From Catrice Cosmetics

Perfect Summer Base Recipe From Catrice Cosmetics

Catrice Cosmetics has one of my favourite drugstore lip products. I had few of their eyeshadow palettes, but they have been a pass for me. After I had heard amazing things about their base products, I decided to give them a go. I was intrigued by they high coverage and waterproof promises behind them.
