BUDGET CONCEALERS PART 2 - CATRICE RE-TOUCH LIGHT REFLECTING CONCEALER

I have been trying several budget concealers recently in the hope that I can find one that performs as well as some my high end faves from Estée Lauder and Clarins. 

After a dissapointing start with the


next under my spotlight was the Catrice  Re-Touch Light-Reflecting Concealer packaged in a stylish silver twist n click pen applicator. 



Catrice Re Touch Light Reflecting Concealer



It's available in 3 shades and I chose 020 Light Beige.



020 Light Beige


This product claims to be:

The ultimate creamy, light concealer for radiant eyes and a fresh appearance, light-reflecting pigments and medium coverage combined with moisturizing ingredients hide shadows under your eyes and other small imperfections in no time at all. Its gentle texture feels pleasant on the sensitive skin around the eye.

On paper this sounded like my perfect combination of light reflecting and coverage, but unfortunately on my mature skin it failed dismally on the light reflecting front and was mediocre, at best, on the concealing side. Even on the back of my hand and holding it at different angles and in different lights I could hardly see any of the light reflecting pigments. 
However it did feel moisturizing and creamy and didn't feel or leave a cakey finish like some concealers. 
It was easy and gentle to apply due to the soft brush, but I did find the click pen slightly irritating, as it took several twists and clicks to dispense the product onto the brush unlike its more expensive counterparts where the click mechanisms feel smoother and are just quicker to use and this could be where the price difference kicks in.

Overall : I wouldn't buy this product again despite its budget price tag of R79.95
