J.Cat Beauty has the word “cat” in their name it’s also reassuring to know that J. Cat Cosmetics are trend-oriented, fashion-forward cosmetics are also Leaping Bunny/Cruelty-free.
We first discovered J.Cat at a BeautyPress Spotlight Event for editors and instantly fell in love with their tons of covetable products well under $20.
You don’t have to be a cat lover to love J.Cat Beauty! Anyone who likes to play with trendy products will be in heaven when they discover J.Cat Beauty! Here are some of our newest favorites for the season:
On the upper left side of this photo you’ll find long-wearing eye sparkle in 6 colors of J.Cat Holographic Eye Toppers ($6.99).
Apply this eye-bling super shimmers with a sponge-tipped applicator. The formula is lightweight, blend-able and can be worn a starry wash of color, or more intense, thanks to a creamy/liquid formula with brilliant holographic attitude.
We tried “Pinch Me, Peachy,” a metallic copper, so trendy! Super glittery Mermaid Eyes are yours with “Wink Tink” glittery sea green and “Azul Lemonade” the color of clear blue sea.
Other colors include apricot, deeper blue, and lavender.
You can wear these as-is or enhance another eye color. In the sunlight, these glitter powders really catch the light but they sparkle aplenty under artificial lights as well.
Love Struck Blush:
The shimmery embossed cat silhouette in the Love Struck Blushes ($3.99/each) are available in a dozen colors from light to quite deep in a palette of peaches and cool and warm pinks.
Not merely a blush, this multi-tasks as a blush and a bronzer/shimmer to wear on bare skin or over your favorite foundation.
The blush is fairly intense but very blendable and makes a believable flush with a fluffy powder brush.
On the bottom of our photo, above, is an open and a closed J.Cat Beauty Cushion Compact ($17.99). We’ve reviewed a lot of these lately, as they’re trending in K-Beauty.
Touted as skincare and makeup in one travel-friendly compact, the sponge-y membrane in the compact keeps the liquid from seeping out until you are ready to apply it with the included sponge applicator, nestled into the top of the mirrored compact.
The CC cream tinted formula in 16 light to deep shades (8n for lighter skin, 8 for deeper skin tones – see colors above) has Hyaluronic Acid to keep your skin moisturized, plus a nice dose of sun protection with Titanium Oxide, up to SPF 45+.
You’re buying a remarkable product that is good for all skin types including oily, acne-prone and sensitive skin.
We tried the two lightest shades and found the sheer formula to be just enough to cover flaws with a bit of wiggle room in the tints. Thumbs up to J.Cat Beauty for having a wide range of colors and tones.
Even better the compacts are refillable!
J.Cat Beauty 3D-Liscious Holographic Lip Creams are available in 8 colors and they are must-haves for a true shimmery holographic look that is a hot trend in lip products.
We tried “Clear Path” a holographic clear with blue holographic shimmer, “Cinnamonster” a coppery holographic shimmer and “Wonder Pearl” a slightly more subdued clear gloss with pearly shimmer.
These lip creams are meant to turn heads with prismatic effects in a lightweight gloss dispensed from a sponge-tipped wanded tube.
Beauty Tip: For the most dramatic prismatic effect, layer over bold or dark lip colors and don’t press lips together to mix the shades, allow the gloss to remain a glaze on top of your base shade.
Next to the 3 J.Cat 3D-Liscious Holographic Lip Creams in our photo is one of the exciting J.Cat Beauty Freedom Creator Lip Palettes ($17.99/each). These are a lip product lovers dream.
There are three different palettes with color combos featuring bolds, brights, nudes, shimmers, and metallics. You can use them as-is right from the compact, but the idea is to take the (included) metal plate, scrape off a bit of a few colors with the included dual-ended spatula brush, and be your own mixmaster.
Our sample was the Freedom Sparkle Palette (in the photo). What we love so much about these is that you can try the latest trends without investing more in the products you might not like for more than a season.
Add a primary color or colors and also add the sparkle of your choice…it’s fun to play!
If you don’t like what you’ve made, there is plenty more in each color square to try again. If you aren’t sure where to begin there are color mixes to try right on the box.
Beauty Tip: add white to lip color to lighten, add black to lip color to deepen, add red to lip color to add warmth, add yellow to add warmth in pink lip shades, add blue to lip color to cool the lip shades.
