There are so many items in the forthcoming Ciate Colour Cosmetics collection that I’m going to split the posts up. If you’ve been following the brand’s Instagram then you’ll already have seen these little mushroom blushers. Although they look really shiny in the pot, once on the skin, they’re not nearly as gleaming and diffuse really well onto the cheeks for natural looking, light colours. For testing, I just dabbed the blush ball to my cheek and then blended with my fingertips but I think next time I might use a brush.
To be accurate, there are six Blush Pop colours and – I have Tantalise and Schmooze above – a Glow Pop Bronzer and a Glow Pop Highlighter, below.
I’m afraid I dinged the bronzer – it did arrive in perfect condition!
As you can see, the shades are semi translucent and quite dry to the touch. However, at £16 each I think they’re quite expensive for a creme blush.
The one product from the new Ciate Colour Cosmetics I didn’t really like is the Liquid Chrome Liners (£15) – the product comes out quite gloopy and the tip isn’t flexible to be accurate on the lid. However, there is plenty of metallic sheen in them so if you’re good at eyes already, maybe it won’t be a problem.
The shades swatched are Celestial and Sci-Fi (silver).
I love the Cooling Eyeshadow Slicks (£15). They’re more sheer washes of colour for the lids than a high pigment product, but amazing as a base for smoky eyes or just on their own for a hint of colour. The formula is oil free (great for oily lids) and glides onto lids.
I’ve swatched these two at intensity, but they’d be lighter than this on the lid – think of them as brightening veils of colour. The Cooling Shadow Slicks are old fashioned products brought back to life with a different attitude and more versatility. Anyone who ever wrestled with a tube of blue creme shadow will see these as a whole other thing! The whole Ciate Colour Cosmetics line has launched already HERE.
