Spotted: Catrice Hollywood's Fabulous 40ties LE

Hey there!
I just lately saw this new LE at my drugstore, and I'm pretty excited about it :) I'm talking about Catrice's Hollywood's Fabulous 40ties LE.
This LE contains 2 eyeshadow quads, 1 brow gel, 1 eyebrow lifter pencil, 4 lipsticks, 1 lip gloss top coat, 1 blush and 5 nail polishes. Here *click* you can find an overview of the products.
The eyeshadow quads come in natural and rather cool-toned shades. Some are shimmery, some matte, and I'm sure you could do lots of different looks with these. I decided had enough similar shades, so I didn't get them. As far as I can judge from the testers, they seemed to be pretty pigmented.
The eyebrow gel is supposed to be a bit tinted, but I couldn't tell the tint at the store. Don't need it.
The Eyebrow Lifter is a big pencil to add highlights around your eye. I think it's actually quite similar to Benefit HighBrow! The shade is a very light natural pink, and it's super creamy and opaque. I can't wait to use this one for my daily looks :)
here I blended it out
here I used it lightly underneath my brow, in my inner corner and on the water line
The lipsticks are all super pretty shades of red and pink, from very dark to nude. I found some even a little too dark! They're really pigmented and glide on, but I didn't get any of these.
The lip gloss top coat is supposed to add shine over any lip product, but I didn't need it.
The blush is super pretty! It's a mix of pressed and baked blush, I think the little sprinkles are the baked parts. It's a pink coral shade, and doesn't have any shimmer, it's matte. Pigmentation is good, and I love it :) This is gonna be great for every day :)
Last but not least, the nail polishes. Also all pinkish shades, super pretty. I could have bought them all :D I ended up deciding on one, C03 Marlene's Favorite, which is a pretty coral pink. Coral is really hard to me to pull off with my skin tone, but I think this has enough pink in it to look good :) It's a creme, 2 coats shown in the swatch. Nice consistency. The shade is very close to the blush's.
After all, I'm impressed! I'm super happy with this LE! I could have bought everything right away, but I was reasonable. And I even think the pink shades work for fall, they're all dusty enough not to be bright. So pretty :) And everything in this LE looks great together!
What do you think of it? Are you as smitten as I am?
xoxo, Misch
