CATRICE HD Liquid Coverage Foundation – Review, Swatches, Before and After

I’m guilty of sitting on this particular product, but for good reason. When it arrived in my mailbox I was going through a lengthy battle with a skin irritation and was making my way through medications to treat it, so wearing foundation was a no-no.

Months later, my skin is in a much better place and I’ve had the chance to test it out.

The CATRICE Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation comes in 26 shades and retails for $10.99 USD/$13.99 CAD.

It comes in a translucent glass bottle with a medicine dropper applicator, which is a plus in my opinion because it is more sanitary than a doe-foot applicator and is, therefore, more MUA kit-friendly. Each bottle contains 30 ml of product.

I applied the shade Light Beige with a damp Beauty Blender and after shooting the before and after images below, set it with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I was able to achieve a matte light to medium coverage with 2.5 drops.

I can see why this foundation has received positive reviews online. It’s a good option for a drugstore foundation, especially if you prefer something more comfortable than a full coverage foundation. This foundation felt quite lightweight, although it wasn’t as lightweight as water-based foundations I have worn in the past, so I could still feel that I was wearing it (but only a bit, no cakey-feeling experience at all). The best part of the foundation for me was how it lasted on my nose. Because the pores on my nose are fairly big they don’t tend to play well with liquid foundations, but this foundation didn’t budge on my nose. The only downside I experienced was that the foundation oxidized on me just a bit – not so much that it will stop me from using the foundation in the future, but it’s something to keep in mind if that’s something that would sway you from trying it out.
