New CID Cosmetics Eye Mousse ‘Tourmaline’

April 19, 2012

New CID have just launched a collection of i colour mousses – creamy, colourful shades of which this little beauty ‘Tourmaline’ which reminds me of my Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Emerveille as a similar pinky golden shimmer.

Texture and pigmentation wise I am really impressed – the swatch is a tiny amount that goes a long way. I’d like to say it’s a much cheaper option than the Chanel – and yes, it is cheaper. But at £14 it’s not a steal… I’d say it’s worth it. 
The pigmentation and colour are impressive, but what really impresses me is the staying power – I tried these on my eyes, one day with some Too Faced Primer underneath and one day on it’s own and it held up really well both times – slightly better with the primer as to be expected, but on it’s own it stayed in place.
Overall, if you fancy the Chanel but don’t want to fork out over £20….then definitely check these out. Not a total dupe, this shade is pinker, the Chanel is more peachy – but still, save a tenner…

    I love the look of it, really nice colour and shine… I might have to investigate getting some for the shop – the thing is you need a whole range (then I have to have one for myself) and it starts getting expensive :-)

    I like the colour…more like close to copper…and the subtle shine does look very good.A little amount doing the trick sounds interesting and value for money.
