Catrice has made quite an impression on me since launching at Shoppers Drug Marts in Canada. Today I am going to talk about two products, HD Liquid Coverage Foundation and Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer. 
Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation
Hi-Def Coverage! Catrice's HD Liquid Coverage Foundation is an ultra-lightweight, high coverage foundation for a natural looking finish. • Vegan • Paraben free • 24 hr-wear • Cruelty free • Second skin effect
Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation comes in 23 shades, it is high coverage with a natural finish. The formula is supposed to mattify the skin while lasting 24 hours all while having a lightweight formal and a natural skin finish. Let's take a look at how it worked for me.

The bottle has a nice frosted look to it and an eyedropper for application. It looks pretty darn high end for drug store and its $13.99 price tag.

The formula is relatively thin for a full coverage formula but dries quickly because of its long-lasting and mattifying qualities. Because of this I really like using a wet sponge to apply it (currently loving the Real Techniques sponges for it). I also like to work section by section in my face so that it doesn't dry up before I have a chance to smooth it out. I personally have dry skin so using a hydrating primer under makes it go on a lot smoother and better too. If I apply it on its own I find I get some flakiness around my nose.
The coverage is actually pretty light but buildable. I like to give a once over and then a second go for a fuller look.

As for the wear, I found it wore pretty darn long and into my day with powder and setting spray. I did find with my dry skin that powder wasn't as necessary and didn't actually make the foundation look great on me. It made it just a little too dry.

I have been using shade 05 Ivory Beige. Which to be 100% honest is my perfect shade. I could not ask for a better match for me. If you want to see some fairer shade comparisons head on over to CrystalCandy Makeup for some swatches.
Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer
Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer is high coverage and long-lasting concealer for an improved skin.
A little while back I reviewed some new (to me) Catrice products, one of which was Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in 010 Porcelain, I was also sent with this foundation another shade to review 007 Natural Rose
I personally really like the formula of these concealers. They are full coverage like the name implies, but also creamy and smooth. I have used them many times as the only product on my face and been quite happy. They blend out super easy and look great all day long without any creasing. It performs exceptionally well, especially since it is only $7.99 Cad.

010 Porcelain is a shade that almost has a beige quality to it, which at first I was thrown by, but love how it cancels out any red in my face. It is such a great shade for me to use for just about anything going on.

070 Natural Rose on the other hand runs peachy. This has become my go-to for undereye circles.

This concealer is good enough to use as your only complexion product but also can take a product that you don't want to use too much of up a level (like a sheer foundation).

I have been using it with the HD foundation on my blemishes and under eyes as well as around my nose.
How I really like to use these products together is by applying a hydrating primer, sponging on the foundation, applying concealer and setting with a spray. If you have actually normal or oily skin I would definitely recommend some powder.

Here are some photos of me wearing it mid-summer. 
You can see I get a real natural look using the products but still the coverage I need. 
Overall I am loving these products. The concealers are now my go-to product. They have the coverage I need while being fantastic for smoothing out and not looking thick. They look like my skin and I love that.

The foundation is great and a perfect option for when my skin is feeling a bit more oily then usual or I want a long-wearing option. It looks natural on my skin but can look a bit dry if I don't hydrate properly before applying or powder (once again, I have dry skin though).

If you are looking for some great drug store options I highly recommend picking these up at your local Shoppers Drug Mart or online.
