Today, we're talking eye liner. And for a change, it's not black eye liner. I think it's almost always just assumed that eye liner will be black these days. As something that most of us use every day, it seems like it's almost crying out for someone to jazz it up a bit! I actually hadn't heard of New Cid Cosmetics until back in October time when I was at a blogger event showcasing their products. The brand really appealed to me for a few reasons - the products all had their own little twist to what we normally expect, the colours were a bit braver than my normal neutrals and the packaging was super sleek white and silver which looked really high end.
The I-Gel trio liner was the product I was most excited to try when I got home. I struggle with eye liner at the best of times, and have never really liked/got the hang of gel liner but what interested me the most about this was the emerald green, dark purple and bright blue shades. I absolutely adore the emerald green in this palette, and I've been wearing this on it's own with a neutral brown matte in the crease for shading - which you can see below! This green shade works best for me because of my eye colour and skin tone and I think the blue and purple colours would be gorgeous on cooler skin tones. All the colours have a gorgeous, subtle shimmer too.
The formula is really easy to work with - it's a soft gel and, when used on the brush it comes with, the liner applies so easily. I'd even say this applies easier than my favourite black liner. I don't go for a cat-flick with this, because I think it's nicer just to add some colour. The best thing about this liner is how ridiculously long-lasting it is. I've tried 'smudge proof' thing before, but this is like no other. My normal eye make-up remover didn't make a mark on this, so I had to call on the super-strength eye make-up remover that is Benefit They're Real remover. This might put some people off and I understand that, but I personally love long-lasting make up. I want my eye liner to stay put until it's absolutely certain that I don't want it to be there any more!
What do you think of this liner trio? Have you ever tried New Cid Cosmetics?
