Review| New CID Cosmetics i-Bronze Compact Bronzer - Rio

New CID Cosmetics i-bronze Compact Powder Bronzer Rio - £22.00*- Link

"The unique marbelised formulation means this bronzer has swirls of bronze, golds, pinks and chocolate browns to give the perfect colour for practically all skin tones."

Bronzers for me are one of the main items I use for my daily make up. I prefer to use a bronzer rather than blushers because my cheeks are naturally quite rosy anyway, so I'd rather not end up looking like a pink-cheeked ragdoll. I was sent this New CID Cosmetics i-bronze Compact Powder Bronzer to try out, & I instantly fell in love with it...

The bronzer first of all comes in its own individual cardboard packaging. It's then housed inside this practical and sturdy flip lid container, which even comes with its own large mirror on the inside of the lid. 

You can't help but notice just how gorgeous the bronzer is, with its baked look and marbled swirl effect as soon as you open it up. I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for anything that looks good... If it looks pretty, it's mine :)

The bronzer is made up of a few different colours and shades, which makes it super versatile. You could use the pale pink shades for highlighting, the bronze and golds for bronzing, and the darker chocolate browns for contouring. Or, you can just get a large brush and swirl them altogether to get a beautiful sun kissed glow to your skin. So you're definitely getting your moneys worth out of this one! 

The colours are well pigmented, so you do only need a little bit to get a lightly bronzed look if you're a light skin tone, but easily build-able for darker skin tones. So this really is made for everyone. I should also mention that unlike other bronzers I've tried, this powder has very powder fall out when applying, so no wasted product.

It is a little on the pricey side, but well worth it! If you're looking to invest in a good quality bronzer/contour/highlighter then I'd definitely recommend you give this pretty little thing a go. Its versatile and suitable for pretty much everyone.

You can purchase from New CID Cosmetics Website at £22.00 for 9g of product.
