Coral for Autumn? New CID encourages summer to linger!

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 20 - 2010

If matte orange lips for Spring isn’t your kinda thing… how about some coral for Autumn?

These new inclusions from New CID Cosmetics… I could handle nicely!  It’s that guava-y coral that usually works well on both warm and cool skintones!

Perhaps a touch summery, but the general consensus last week was that we don’t *really* go in for all that trend stuff anyway…

They say…

New CID i – glow in Coral Crush (£23.50) offers a perfect ‘pick me up’ for dull and tired skin. The beautiful marbleised baked powders offer an easy, silky smooth application, while the light reflective pigments mimic the skin’s natural radiance. Build up the shade to use as a blusher or sweep across the face and décolletage for a beautiful warm glow.

New CID i – gloss in Coral Candy (£15.50) is the perfect companion to keep some sunshine in your life. This pretty shade is suitable for all, creating high-glam shine that really lasts. Featuring built-in lights and mirror for easy on-the-go application, you won’t be fading into the darkness this season!


I’m wondering if the i-glow is a more wearable version MAC Stereo Rose for cool, pale skintones.  Any thoughts on New CID’s i-glow range?

On an unrelated note, I’m positively itching for my new camera to arrive (hopefully tomorrow!)… hurry up!

    Ooh, thanks for this! I have two of their powders (Sirocco and Ice Pop I think the second one is called) and one gloss, so I’ll definitely get these! :)

  2. Estelle says:

    I’ve been eyeing up this brand for a while, but have yet to indulge. I was also quite surprised that they’d brought out coral for Autumn, but I’m liking it…I don’t think I’m done with coral for the year just yet…!x

  3. DINKY London says:

    Hmmm, I have the Sirocco shade of the i-glow but I find it so utterly shimmery that I don’t often wear it. I think it’s the shimmer, not the coral shade that would put me off wearing it over winter.

    I haven’t tried anything from New CID yet, but I’ve been eying the little gel eyeliner trios for a while now. And then something funny happened … I was casually watching Big Brother a while back, and I saw what I swear was one of those New CID gel eyeliner trios being used by that John James guy to do his guyliner. I started laughing, and couldn’t make my husband understand why I was so amused. Hence I submit my story to you, instead 😛

    • I lovvveee that you came here to share that and totally empathise with the whole husband not getting it thing!

      I have a cousin who swears by the New CID lipglosses… but I’m not a huge lipgloss fan (despite the blog name!), so wouldn’t know! x

  5. Shortiee31 says:

    The lipgloss’ colour is GORGEOUS!

  6. Never heard of this brand! And I refuse to believe that coral ever goes out of style/season :)

  7. That blush looks like my MAC Mineralize ‘Warm Soul’ which I love…. xx

    I like coral so I can see it working for fall.

  9. Ann says:

    Oooh, I think you could be right with the Stereo Rose comparison.

    I posted a photo wearing this i-glow just t’other day – on my pale, non tanned skin and felt it gives quite a similar effect – I really love the CID pieces! x
