I was recently given the oppertunity to choose a few products from New CID Cosmetics to have a play about with, two things instantly caught my eye and here they are..
I-Pout in 'Scarlet'
There are so many great features in this product, to start there's a little built in mirror on the side of the case for touch up's and the button on the base switches on an LED light making it possible to apply whenever you need to. For me, this is a huge plus. On numerous occassions a last minute decision to go out has left me unprepared and applying last minute touch ups to my make-up on route to town. Now I'm not sure how many of you have ever attempted to apply make-up in the dark but it is almost impossible. Especially if like me, you suddenly come to the realisation that 'red lipstick would be a great idea right now' and try to pop it on in the dark. I will say no more as you can imagine, the result is always bad. Very bad. This is where this product would of come in incredibly handy as well as for touch up's during the night instead of rushing off to the bathroom.
The lipstick itself is a gorgeous classic 'Hollywood Starlet' shade of red that everyone needs at least one of in their collection. This can be applied lightly for a 'just bitten cherry' effect or with a slightly heavier hand for a full on red lip. The formula is incredibly moisturising, ensuring lips stay glossy and luscious looking all through the night.
I-Glow in 'Coral Rush' £24.00 for 9g's
The I-Glow is a gorgeous marbelised baked powder in a coral/pink with gold veins running through. This makes both a gorgeous blush or highlight shade as it has has a beautiful, luminous finish that reflects light, brightening up your face. As well as getting a whopping 9g's of product (in comparison to Mac's baked blush 3.5g for £17.50) there's also a giant mirror and sleek, secure packaging to keep the product in place. The I-Glow powder is also intensely pigmented, the swatch below was just one swipe of the product so no doubt this will last me a very long time as you only need a light hand. Along with Elf's 'Candid Coral' and this has become another firm favourite for Summer. I've tried this on my mum, best friend and myself and we vary from lily white, fake tanned, to naturally olive skinned and it suits us all! This makes a very versitile product as I've also used it as an eyeshadow, or as a highlight in the inner corner.
Feel free to have a browse of their website they have some amazing products in gorgeous colours!
