I have used some New CID Cosmetics before and it's been hit and miss as a brand for me so far. However, I really like these i-gloss Light-Up Lip Glosses in Honeypot (shimmering beigey-pink shade with gold reflects) and Moonstone (a very pale pink with lilac reflects) which are £15.50 each. Honeypot looks especially eye-catching in the packaging...
The i-gloss products feature a mirror on the side and small lights in the lid which automatically come on when you unscrew the lid. This is a pretty nifty feature as you can apply your lipgloss anywhere, no matter how bad the lighting is!
I love these two colours but I think I will get the most use out of Honeypot which is a warmer shade that makes your complexion look bright and healthy. The consistency of these glosses is really nice, non-gritty and they stay put for a long time. It's a lightweight gel formula with a really nice sponge applicator and I like the way it never feels sticky or gloopy on your lips. Moonstone looks great over lipsticks like Mac Angel or YSL Rouge Volupte in Lingerie Pink. Honeypot would look lovely over Estee Lauder Pure Colour lipstick in Vanilla or Mac Creme De Nude.
As I said, they are £15.50 each and you may think that's a little expensive for a gloss but when you consider that you are getting 6.2g of product, a light and a mirror, I think it's a reasonable deal (for reference, a MAC lipglass is £12 for 4.8g of product).
If you are interested in trying these glosses out, the website Francesco Group is offering this New CID Cosmetics i-gloss set containing 6 of the shades for only £20.40 OR you can get it as a free gift on the New CID Cosmetics website when you purchase any three products from the brand (you also get free shipping on all UK orders or free international shipping when you spend £50 or more). This little set would be a great way of trying a few different shades.
I decided to head into town yesterday and tackle all my Christmas shopping in one go. A clever idea?....er, that's a resounding no on that one. It was a nightmare! People pushing and shoving, bags cutting into your hands and I'm pretty sure I've permanently damaged the muscles in my left arm!ha ha. I did get a little distracted whilst out but I'm blaming that solely on my mum, who came along for the ride to help me spend my money (as if I need any assistance in that respect!).
Also, we FINALLY got our acacia wood coffee table delivered after months of waiting for it. I love how it's really natural and has knots and cracks in it. It's really solid looking and fits in well with the style of our flat. We only need a few more things to finish off the room.
I love interior design so I could look at pictures and brochures all day!
