No, Lazy Day is not the name of the eyeshadow even though the title might suggest it :-). I called this post lazy day eyeshadow because I feel this is the perfect colour to be used on my lazy day when I cannot be bothered to play with eyeshadows and want something that I can quickly spread over my lids and go. Yes, I do have days like this. Most of the days I do enjoy a little make up session in the morning but there are also those days when I just don't want to spend a lot of time putting my make up on and rather sleep in.
From one of my previous post you might remember this was an impulsive buy. I went out to get the Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara and ended up getting the Catrice eyeshadow and a blush as well. So here is my opinion on the eyeshadow.
The full name is 340 Ooops...Nude did it again! (does the name also reminds you one of Britney Spears's songs :-)?!) by Catrice. Maybe you might be interested to know Catrice brand is owned by the same company that produces Essence cosmetic brand. It's a pretty beige colour with a sheen to it. I like the fact it's not completely matte because the sheen brightness your eyes and makes you look more awake. It just doesn't look that dull :-). It's not definitely as bright as a highligther but can be used as such if you would like to opt for something more subtle. The eyeshadow stays put the whole day with the help of the primer. Unfortunately, I haven't tried it without the primer yet as it became a routine for me to use the primer before using any eyeshadow so I cannot comment on the staying power without it.
I usually use this eyeshadow all over the lid ( sometimes even with a little bit of MAC Sable or MAC Satin Taupe blended in the crease) when I am aiming for more natural look or add a brown or black eyeliner if I want more bold look. To be honest, I am sporting these two looks for almost full three weeks now, I think that explains a lot :-).
For better reference I compared it to the Virgin shade from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Catrice's 340 Ooops...Nude did it again! is more on the beige side whereas UD Virgin has white undertones. I like both colours but I have to admit if I wear UD Virgin all over the lid I feel it's too much so Catrice eyeshadow feel more natural to me. But hey, that's just my opinion :-), so if you'd like to see the comparison for yourself check the photos below and let me know what you think. If you can't figure it out from the text - Catrice is on the left and Urban Decay on the right :-).




  1. Love this colour!x
