Beauty | New Cid Cosmetics First Impressions.



Well isn't this packaging a bloggers dream!? Super crisp white angled packaging mixed with reflective silver accents... If only all beauty packaging could be so beautiful!.. My Instagram would be insane!

If you caught my last couple of blog posts you'll know that I recently attended a press dinner held by Salon Success at Malmaison in Leeds. At the dinner Kim & Amy ever so kindly showed us some new releases from hair care supremacist Paul Mitchell as well as products from the award winning cosmetics brand New Cid Cosmetics. After the event had finished, and we all had full tums from the most delicious three course meal, all us bloggers were handed two goodie bags, one of which was filled with all these amazing New Cid Cosmetics products.




I-Pout (shades ruby red & dusk).*
If these aren't the lipsticks of choice than I don't know what is? What instantly appeals to me about these lip products, is their genius packaging, which consists of a long length reflective mirror on the lid and an LED light at the base of the bullet. For me these lipsticks are amazing all rounders, the shades are perfect for daytime use, however the creative packaging means you can take these beauties on a night out & they'd see you right through the night... Even if your heels don't! I have the shades ruby red which is a bright pink toned red and dusk which is a nude peach colour. I'm actually hoping to give these away in a little blog giveaway seen as though I reached 1000 twitter followers this week, so watch this space, because they'd make amazing additions to your lipstick collection.

I-Gloss (shade blondie).*
I already have two of these in my collection & I actually mentioned the shade 'coral candy' in a recent blog post where I discussed my favourite lip glosses... So I know this is going to be a goodie! The gloss applies with a little paintbrush style applicator meaning it's super duper easy to apply and also comes with the New Cid Cosmetics LED light & reflective mirror. The shade blondie is a light rose toned pink with a reflective brighter pink shimmer, which looks so so pretty. I use my I-Glosses mainly over other lipsticks and lip liners however they work perfectly well on their own for a less put together, more natural makeup look.

I-Prime Foundation Primer.*
I very rarely use primers. Bad blogger I know! I understand they prolong the effect of your makeup, but for me, especially when I'm getting ready for work first thing on a morning, it's a stage that I quite frankly can't be arsed to go through. I've not tried this primer before, but I have sampled it at previous events, it's lightweight, smoothing & I think it's going to work brilliantly well. I love the packaging with this primer, it contained in a tube with a clear strip where you can see how much of the product has been used and has a silver pump style dispenser.

I-Glow Compct Shimmer (shade sirocco).*
Doesn't this blush look like the dreamiest thing ever, On a first impressions basis, I love absolutely everything about this product, I almost don't want to use it as I don't want to ruin the products appearance. The brown toned blush contains reflective pigments meaning it's going to be absolutely perfect for this time of year & all being well, I'm pretty sure this is going to be my holiday blush.

I-Groom Eyebrow Pencil (shade neutral).*
The I-Groom was my very first brow pencil I bought, way back when I was a teen. I'd gone to get my brows waxed and threaded and was recommend the product by the salon owner & by golly was she right. The I-Groom has an angled wax pencil which is shaped perfectly to define the arches of the brows as well as a spoolie on the other side to groom any stray hairs. When I first purchased this product there was only one shade, however as times have changed & as brows have seemingly taken over the world, New Cid Cosmetics now have three shades, light, neural & dark. I'm pretty sure I'd be better off with the darker shade, but I'm going to see how things go, the neutral colour looks quite dark and ashy toned, so it might surprise me!

I-Smoulder Smokey Eye Pencil and Shadow (shade ember).*
I love the look of this two in one product!.. We all love a multi functional product don't we gals! One side is a twist up shimmery brown eyeliner and the other is a little pot of shimmery taupe eye shadow with a sponge applicator. Even though I don't wear a massive amount of eyeshadow, I'm really excited to use the I-Smoulder purely because it's like nothing else I've tried before... And the shade is completely up my street!

Again a massive thank you to Amy & Kim who invited me to the Salon Success dinner and thank you for kindly gifting me with these amazing products, I can't wait to try them!

Have you tried any of these New Cid Cosmetics products before? I'd love to hear what you think.
