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…
