i discovered the new LE display of Catrice some days ago, the new futuristic collection is called Out Of Space. i bought two items to try, a nail polish and a gel eyeliner.
the gel eyeliner is called C03 Silver's Shuttle, a medium shimmery silver. there was one more colour (a shimmery champagne) that interested me, but it was sold out.
it contains 2.2g and cost about 3.95€.
i really like the packaging, it comes in a glass jar with a reflecting silver lid with a holographic design on it.
the consistency is a lot harder than their regular gel liners, it's like a buttery cream. the texture is not very smooth because of the microglitter particles, but when i coat my eyeliner brush well it applies evenly and builds up to an opaque finish easily. i like to wear it a bit sheer on the lower lashline thanks to its light catching qualities, the shade is too light for me to frame my upper lashline. by giving a cool toned shine it really reminds me of Chanel's Rose Platine eyeliner but the Chanel liner is more complex and tan because of its copper sparkle bits so it blends in your skin colour more beautiful. the effect on the lower lash line is almost comparable, though. i think this is a good affordable alternative to Chanel Rose Platine for everyone who missed it. the longevity is good, but not as good as with Chanel - the rub test shows it impressively.
this is how it looks worn:
|i'm wearing it on the outer half of the lid and on the lower lashline.|

after the rub-test:

the nail polish is called C02 Houston's Favourite, a dark navy base colour with tons of teal shimmer and microglitter. it contains 9ml and costs 2.49€. it has the same flat wide brush as the regular nail polishes by Catrice. the texture is good, it applies evenly and streak-free. drying time is average but because of the sparkling bits it dries down to a rather dull finish which requires a shiny top coat. i already had very apparent tip wear after 1 day.
