Get the Look Gigi Hadid Vma's Ft. New Cid i-glow Compact Shimmer Powder

I know you are probably thinking I'm really late on the Vma "Look Wagon " But as they say "better late than never". Gigi Hadid is a supermodel and a part of Taylor Swift's "Squad" and was one of the top looks at the Vma's held a few months ago. Gigi stunned in a gorgeous yellow dress , tanned skin and her strobe ( highlights ) was on "fleek" , she basically looked like a Golden Goddess. The look was beautiful but was a bit much for everyday wear ( imagine seeing a lady in gold glowing make-up .. dosent look natural )  I thought that I would create my own version of this look with the New Cid i-glow Compact shimmer Powder in Sirrocco I received from is one of the UK's leading online retailers of hair care and beauty products. They provide a wide range of hair extensions products and over 40 successful beauty, hair care and hair electrical brands. Every 3 months I am sent a product/s to review.

The product retails for £10.99 on the Hairtrade website. As always I'm a sucker for nice packaging especially for beauty related items as I feel they should look good. It came in a white Box with silver accents on the top and bottom opening flaps which gave it a nice clean and classic look .  When you open the product it has a smell of back in the day make-up ... its not overpowering or funky it just smells like "make up". 

This marbleized powder has a beautiful baked gold and bronzed look with flecks of glitter. Really , really pretty! and super pigmented. 

A little goes a long way with this product as all you need to do is dust on the areas of your face where the sun would hit naturally; the forehead  , cheeks , nose , chin and temples.  I actually used this to do the entire Face Look ( minus foundation , lashes and eyeliner ) which makes it versatile.  It was used ( for me ) as eye shadow  , bronzer and highlighter to strobe and it was not cakey and went on the areas really easy without a fuss.

A big plus with the product is the compact and how thick it is in terms of protecting the product but still light enough to carry in your handbag for daily use.  It has a nice mirror which gets really close up on your face so that you can apply the product easily and evenly.  I like that it's easy to open as some of the New Cid Products I've used are hard to open and your fingers get all up in the product creating a mess and you end up wasting product.

This Product is great for Professional Make-up Artistes and Beginners simply because of it's versatility and how easy it is to use.

PRODUCTS used to create the GiGi Look: Make-Up Primer , Foundation , Black Eyeliner , False Lashes ( I cut one strip in 2 for each eye ) , clear lip-gloss and the New CID i-glow Compact Shimmer Powder. Visit to check out this amazing Product.

  2. Wow..that's quite the dress! I love her make up but there is no way this mom of 4 could pull off a dress like that!

  3. Lovely look. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Adding some of that shimmer powder to any look would be awesome. That golden shimmer looks great without being too intense.

  5. Those make-up products look wonderful! I love the colors on you - looks pretty!

  6. That's a great job with the makeup application. I like the light color on you, perfect pick!

  7. Love her look and loving the look on you as well. I try not to wear too much makeup since it breaks me out but it is good to dress up and look nice every once in a while.

  8. I agree, this look might be over the top for every day wear, but you do look absolutely celestial with that shine and shimmer. For special occasions, this would be gorgeous!

  9. I wish I could pull off that dress- my goodness!!! I love makeup with bits of gold in it- makes me feel sunkissed!

  10. Makeup is something that I don't wear a lot of but you look great!
