Review| New CID Cosmetics - i Glow Compact Shimmer Powder Sirocco

New CID Cosmetics i-glow Compact Shimmer Powder With Mirror - £24.00* - Link

"These marbelised glow powders are the perfect 'pick me up' for the skin. Using our famous baked formulation for easy, silky smooth application, i-glow has light reflective pigments for mimicking your skins natural radiance"

In all honesty, I don't tend to wear much make-up, just basics. I'm such an amateur when it comes to make up, which is why at first I was totally unsure of how I was going to make use of this powder, but I've quickly grown to love it and found out a few uses for it. However, it has been a little neglected, mainly due to the fact its so pretty looking and I don't want to ruin it haha.

The sleek, white & silver packaging is typical of the New CID cosmetics products. The powder comes in its individual cardboard boxing and is then housed inside a sturdy and practical flip lid compact. It even comes with its own large mirror.

As soon as you open it, you can see just how pretty it looks! It's dome shaped, baked formula with marbelised effect just makes it look that extra bit special. The powder is very fine, and therefore is easily blendable.

Although it looks rather orange-y in a couple of the photo's, the overall colour once swirled together is a very natural golden shimmer. This can be used as a bronzer if you are quite fair skinned. Or you can use as a highlighter for medium-darker skin tones. You could even use it as an eye-shadow, which I have done on a couple of occasions, its perfect just to add that extra bit of detail around the eyes but still leaving you with a natural looking appearance.

Overall, although this is a little on the pricey side, this little bit of light reflecting powder magic works perfectly with many skin tones to give a radiant, healthy, sunkissed appearance. Perfect to give your skin a little 'pick me up' during these dull winter months :)

You can purchase from New CID Cosmetics Website at £24.00 for 9g of product.
