There’s a new makeup in my life and I luff her. Her name is Catalina Geo Skin Expert Multi-Function Foundation Makeup Set, but I’ve nicknamed her Skin Expert for short.
Best of all, I’ve got five complete sets, valued at $79.95 each, courtesy of Makeup Australia, to give away. Yup. Pretty happy about that! Love being able to share some of my fabulous finds.
I was lucky enough to receive the Catalina Geo Skin Expert set from Makeup Australia for review purposes.
This is what Makeup Australia say about Skin Expert:
Catalina Geo Multi Function Gel Foundation is applied using a vibrating applicator puff to give the perfect result with Anti-Wrinkle, Whitening and UV Protection of SPF30PA++. Catalina Geo Skin Expert is beautifully gift box presented with the auto cell applicator, a compact with gel foundation, a refill for the compact and 3 replacement applicator puffs. Additional refills are also available separately.
- Multi-functional vibrating puff: high quality puff that can be used not only for liquid type products but also solid products (primer, foundation, sun cream, and solid foundation).
- Freely moveable 3 dimensional head: enhanced affinity to cover with ease even the curves of the face such as the nose and eye areas, improving coverability and durability.
- Sophisticated design: with state of the art design this vibrating puff is compact and sits in the cradle of the hand allowing ease of use.
- Convenience: designed to be highly portable, replacement heads are simply achieved in a single movement.
- Vibrating effect: at 12,000 dabs per minute this ensures not only complete coverage with ease but also ensure a long lasting result.
Application tip: Make sure that the sieve is placed over the compact prior to loading the applicator so that the applicator is not overloaded with product. Dab the product on the forehead and cheeks before starting the applicator for an even result.
What Kimba Likes says about Catalina Geo Skin Expert:
The Skin Expert set just screamed glam from the moment I spied the gorgeous gold boxed set with Art Deco-inspired imagery.
When the box was opened, the oohs and aahs continued. There is a gorgeous compact containing Skin Expert Multi-Function Gel Foundation, a refill foundation, an amazing vibrating Auto Cell applicator, three sponge applicator heads, and two sieve covers for the foundation.
The foundation comes in two colours – Light Beige and Dark Beige – and the formulation is pretty amazeballs. It is formulated with anti-wrinkle and whitening properties, as well as UV protection SPF30 PA++. I love my Catalina Geo BB Cream. This foundation is BB cream based with a stronger coverage and a lighter feel on the skin. It is made in Korea so is a “proper” BB cream. It lasts beautifully all day and has the most amazing airbrushed appearance.
Whilst I adore the foundation, although I do think a wider range of colours would be fabulous, the real star of the show is the Auto Cell applicator.
Oh Em Gee! This multi-functional vibrating puff is like the makeup equivalent of my beloved Clarisonic sonic cleansing brush. I’m unable to verify 12,000 dabs per minute because I just can’t count that fast, but take it from me, it gives your skin the most beautiful velvety airbrushed appearance.
You simply press the button on top of the vibrating puff, press it into your foundation compact (don’t forget the sieve cover or you will use too much), pop some on your cheeks, forehead and chin, then gently move the applicator to evenly spread. If you need more coverage, just dab the vibrating puff on those areas. The head tilts so you can use it under eyes and around your nose – those tricky bits that need more coverage.
Like most things, it is better to start with less and add more as required. The vibrating action of the puff smooths the foundation very quickly into the skin surface, so it is great for those girls who are always running late in the morning. It may not surprise you to know that I am one of those girls!
I apply concealer over the top, then set it with a little setting powder or mineral powder. Whatever is easiest to hand in the morning rush!
However, it gets better. Not only can you buy additional refills, the vibrating puff can be used for all sorts of makeup and skincare products. Just switch the heads when moving between products. It is as simple as pulling one head off and inserting the replacement. I’ve also washed mine the same way I would wash a makeup brush.
Try it with liquid or solid products, such as sunscreen or BB cream for those days you want a lighter coverage. I’ve also used it to apply night cream after cleansing with my Clarisonic, so it really sinks into the skin.
My only downsides about this product would be that I would prefer a wider range of colours, but as it is a BB cream foundation, the colours do adjust.
I’m delighted that Makeup Australia have generously given me FIVE of these amazing Catalina Geo Skin Expert Makeup Sets to give away.
So, how do you win? Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! Sorry, open to Australian residents only.
