** Finished makeup look **
I've seen New CID reviewed on quite a few people's blogs over the last year or so, needless to say, it had piqued my interest.
Let me introduce you to their foundation called, i-perfection. It comes in a chrome-look bottle with a pump dispenser. The geniuses there realised that you'd never be able to tell how low you were running on foundation, so they included a see-through strip down the side of the container (pictured above) so you can see how much is left, love it!
I bravely went for the shade 'latte', I'd normally go for the palest shade since I'm so fair, but when I looked at the swatches online, I could see the 2nd lightest shade was more yellow toned, whereas the lightest one was pink toned, and since I'm more yellow toned, I thought this would be a better match, and you know what? It was a perfect match! I almost don't need to blend it along my jawline, well, I don't need to for colour, just so there's not a clear mark where it transitions.
After wearing this, I'd say it's probably best suited to people who don't have any dry skin, I have a little dry patch on my one cheek and it does highlight that a little, not as much as some foundations, but a little. It sets really well and very quickly - and only after about 8 hours does it go a bit shiny for me, but after blotting it's good again.
It's quite a light-weight foundation, so if you're looking for heavy coverage, this probably isn't for you, personally I much prefer lighter foundations.
It's one of the more pricey foundations in my collection, coming in at £28.50, for that you get the standard 30ml of product. In all honesty, as much as I like this, it's a decent foundation and sits nicely on my skin, but I probably wouldn't replace it when it runs out. Not because there's anything wrong with it, but because I have other foundations I prefer - such as the Chanel Vitalumiere Velvet foundation (very similar to this), it's a little more expensive, but has a much nicer finish, in fact, it's my favourite foundation, next to the Makeup Forever HD foundation.
