New CID: New generation cosmetics

I’m developing a bit of a crush on this cosmetics brand, so apologies in advance for you having to listen to me swoon over massive pile of make-up I’ve got to get through over the next few weeks.

Today we’ve got some pretty ace powders that will take you from Spring right through to Summer. The baked formulas make them really soft and perfect for use with either a brush or your finger and the marbled effect means the colour is not just one-dimensional, but more natural looking. On the left we have ‘i-glow’, a compact shimmer powder, and on the right we have ‘i-bronze’… you guessed it, a compact bronzing powder. I’m absolutely in love with these and have been wearing them every day since I got them.

The ‘i-glow’ powder is perfect for using as a highlighter on cheekbones or as an eyeshadow base, but you can also use it all over your face to get that dewy fresh-faced look. You do have to be careful around your nose so you don’t end up looking like a sun-tanned Rudolf, but it really gives you a sexy glow. I got a lot of complements on how fresh and dewy my skin looked when I wore this the other day – and it was just a quick sweep of ‘i-glow’. It really lasted all day too and only needed a little topping up around the t-zone to be party ready.

The ‘i-bronze’ is obviously darker and meant only for highlighting the cheek bones and decolletage. The marbled effect means it’s not so harsh if you’re either not a fan or not an expert at applying bronzer as you can’t really go wrong. This isn’t shimmery like the ‘i-glow’ so I think in the Summer I’ll be mixing these two together to get that bronzed goddess look. I love the quality of these powders and the packaging they come in which is sturdy and perfect for ‘handbag popping’ – the mirrors are perfect and not like the majority of compacts which aren’t that great. These are both winners in my book and I’ve even thrown away my previous shimmer powder in disgust at how it compares to these beauties.

    They're amazing shades… they're huge too so they'll last for yonks.
