2 weeks ago I was so lucky to be invited along to get a first look at the new Cien Makeup range that launched in stores on the 30th June. Even better news is that the range will be available permanently in store.
First up, they have reformulated their BB cream. It is a much thicker consistency and it gives a similar coverage to a foundation. I have been wearing this during the day and I love how light it feels on my skin and has lasted from 8am to 9pm when I removed it with my cleansing powder. I have been using the ‘Medium to Dark’ shade but I think in the winter I will change back to the ‘Light’ shade. BB cream is €2.99 for 50mls (Perfect for flying)
Next up, the eye shadows. They have launched 4 colours. Each eye shadow is €1.99. The 2 pictured here I have been using to contour (17 Brilliant Brown) and highlight (16 Rose Garden). They are AMAZING. The Brilliant Brown shade is perfect for contouring. Apply with a light hand but it is build able depending on how light or dark you need it.
When I first applied this to my face and took a ‘selfie’ I actually thought ‘that’s just the new lumee cover I have’ so in this picture I have stood in natural day light and well just look at the results. WOW.
Lipstick. 6 shades. I loved the fushia pink the but after trying them all for the pictures, I am in love with berry passion and velvety ruby. These are 2 shades I would always stay away from but the lipstick is really build able. I have been wearing them for a few days and yes they last. After a few hours I needed to reapply but at €2.49 I don’t think I’d really mind.
Also launched are 6 lip-gloss’s. In the picture above I applied ’10 Glitter Pink’ to my upper lip, just lightly so the light will catch it but not too heavy that my hair will stick to it. Each lip gloss costs just €1.99.
Finally, Cien have launched 2 mascaras, both are black and 1 is waterproof. I have really sensitive eyes and find it hard to find something that I can wear on my lashes all day so I was a little nervous about trying this. So much so that I took my eye makeup remover to work and I didn’t need it. The mascara didn’t irritate and it lasted all day. The waterproof mascara didn’t flake and again last all day until I took it off. The Mascara is €2.49 .
Have you tried anything from the new Cien Makeup range?
