I have always admired New CID Cosmetics from afar and recently acquired one of their i-glow shimmer compacts in Coral Crush*.
The New CID i-glow shimmer compacts are a domed mineralized marble powder similar to the MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes. Coral crush has swirls of peach, pink, gold and coral running through it in a swirled pattern. It is extremely pigmented, can be built up and layered as much as you would like and feels smooth and buttery soft to touch as it is baked.
It blends so beautifully and makes the most gorgeous blush. I dont think i could really put in words how stunning this is. It is shimmery, which is my favourite kind of blush as i very rarely tend to wear matte blushes, however it isnt glittery and gives a gorgeous glow to the face.
i-glow has light reflective particles for mimicking skins natural radiance and can either be used as a highlight or blush and would flatter and suit all skin tones i really do believe.
If you couldnt get your hands on stereo rose by MAC, i would suggest getting your hands on this. In the pan they dont like similar at all, with stereo rose looking much darker however they swatch almost identically.
The New CID Shimmer compact is available in 3 shades coral crush, ice pop (pink) and sirocco (golden bronze).
You can pick yours up now from hairtrade.com for £22.50 which is £1 more than the MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes however i think they are extremely similar and have the addition of a mirror which is a bonus and are available in more shades.
Have you ever tried i-glow or any other New CID products?
