Review| New CID Cosmetics - i-Colour Long Wear Cream Eyeshadows

New CID Cosmetics i-color Long Wear Cream Eye shadows - £14.00 Each* - Link

"A long lasting, mousse textured, cream eye-shadow that is simple to blend and will not crease"

The New CID Cosmetics i-colour Long Wear Cream Eye Shadows come in a range of 8 shades which you can view HERE. I was sent 3 of the shades to try out, Chocolate Opal, Crystal Quartz and Twilight. I love the modern looking packaging, they each come in their own individual cardboard boxes, and are housed in transparent pots with white scew top lid with chrome labelling.

The eye shadows are a cream formula and have a whipped mousse texture to them. Which did make me doubt the claims of being long wear to begin with. However when I tried them, they lasted for around 5-6 hours before showing any signs of fading or creasing(and that's without using an eye primer).

The shadows are lightweight and apply smoothly to the lids. At first the colour is very sheer, which is best if you're going for a more natural look, but you can easily layer to build up colour intensity for a more dramatic eye look. I've found its better to just apply these shadows with my fingertip, because applying with a brush doesn't evenly distribute the product.

Chocolate Opal is a deep brown shade with a purple undertone shimmer to it. Perfect for creating a sultry smoky eye look. 

Crystal Quartz is a vibrant shimmering yellow-gold shade, this is a very wearable colour, great for creating a natural "golden goddess" look.

Twilight is a frosty, silver shimmer shade. Ideal for these colder months and creating the perfect party look for the upcoming festive season. 

These eye shadows are available to buy from CID Cosmetics Website at £14.00 each for 5g of product.

Have you tried these eye shadows, what do you think? Do you prefer cream or powder based shadows?
