I love a musical, or anything theatre related – I also love 90’s films. So combine a classic with a musical and throw in some pretty make-up and I’m one happy girl. This is exactly what happened when I got to go along and watch The Bodyguard – and check out the new CID make-up collection that has been made especially for the partnership.
Now, about the show – it was good, if you love a good belting ballad and love to sing along to some classic Whitney, then you will be won over. But it is rather cheesy, and there are a few too many long and meaningful pauses which made me wonder if someone had forgotten lines rather than build intensity… but for cheesy entertainment, it’s an absolute winner.
But onto the make-up collection…
The collection includes three cream/mousse shadows and two light-up lip glosses (amazing for applying somewhere that’s a bit dark or for helping find your keys…). The two lip glosses are gorgeous – the pinky one with blue shimmer ‘Obsession’ is stunning but to be honest it’s not a colour I would wear. The pale pink pearly shimmer ‘Romance’ is another pretty one that would look great layered over a creamy lip colour – especially on the cupids bow to ad a bit of volume…
Now the eye shades on the other hand, pure gorgeousness. The texture is hard to describe, creamy but really light, very bouncy but not as ‘bubbly’ as a mousse…the pigment is pretty impressive and the shimmer is subtle, not packed with hidden glitter that only appears when swatched. The dark/purple shade ‘Diva’ makes an amazing smokey eye and really has that gorgeous duo-chrome effect that’s so pretty – the name couldn’t be more perfect for a Bodyguard partnership! The pearly white shade ‘Spotlight’ is the right side of bright so it’s flattering and not dated.
The pewter shade ‘Melody’ is oh so pretty and the one I see myself wearing most often – it’s described as a smoky grey with a silver shimmer but I think it’s more special than that and has some lovely muti-faceted tones to it.
