A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to attend a wonderful evening at St David’s Hotel and Spa and come home with a goodie bag of lovely products from Paul Mitchell and New CiD.
We’ve been using them over the last few weeks and couldn’t wait to share the amazing i-Glow Compact Shimmer Powder.
The i-Glow Compact Shimmer Powder is another of New CiD Cosmetics hand baked powders which uses waxes to stick ingredients together. This helps to make the product glide over your skin smoothly creating a more radiant and youthful look – this all sounds pretty wonderful to me!
The other ingredients in the shimmer powder help to ‘bounce’ the light off your skin which is why the best way to use the product is by picking up a really large brush, swirling it over the powder and dusting it over your cheekbones, collar bones and just about anywhere you want with a bit of a glow!
i-Glow is available in three different colours; Icy Pink, Sirocco and Coral Crush.
We were given Sirocco which is a lovely gold colour, the shimmer is amazing but the particles are so small it gives an amazing glow.
I’ve been really impressed with the colour payoff but also how blendable the shimmer powder is, it’s easy to blend with any base make up I put on and has been suitable to wear in both the day and night.
Here it is on:
I really like the glowy look it gives, I’ve had so many people compliment me on it and ask me what it is as they want to buy it too!
You can purchase all of the iGlow products for £26.00 for 9g of product in the compact. The compact itself is also super sturdy with a decent mirror size, I’m overall really impressed with this and I definitely want to try out the Coral Crush and Ice Pop to see how the glow changes.
What do you think of New CiD baked products? Have you tried iGlow?
This was one of the products I couldn’t wait to try out as I already own ice pop (well my mum did but she wasn’t giving it the love it deserved so gave it to me!) which I love. The texture of these are amazing they are so smooth and give an amazing highlight to the skin. Ice pop just adds such a pretty pink flush to the cheeks.
Sirocco is more of a bronzey shade, these are so pigmented as you can see from the swatch below (apologies for the slightly dark photo, I was battling the bad weather spell when I took these!). They have a really soft blendable texture which makes them so easy to work with.
Now I’ve got these two I really want the i-bronze as the colours in that one look amazing. These are baked products so they’re going to last for ages. My ice pop is older than I should admit and doesn’t look used still. Another great thing is they sell these in minis for £16, you get a lot of product in the original and I find I rarely use a blush up so it’s nice to have the option to grab a smaller size one.
