Review: New Cid Cosmetics i-intense High Intense Volumising Mascara

If I could only have one cosmetic for the rest of my life to would be mascara. I find that it really opens up my eyes and makes me seem bright-eyed and awake.

Recently I’ve been seeking a mascara that was less glam and more suitable for the workplace and made me look less like I was heading for a night on the town. As luck would have it I got a New Cid Cosmetics black mascara free with the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, worth €18.50.

After checking out their website I was happy with the cruelty-free policy and decided to give it a go. Big mistake.

It goes on easy and looks really nice on. But it is not long-lasting. By the end of the working day there is often black flakes on my cheeks and an awful black line in the crease of my lid. I know it’s the mascara because I chose not to wear eyeliner for a few days to test this theory.

You may not be able to tell from my badly taken photo but there is a black line in the crease of my lid.

Apart from that it’s super difficult to get off. After a long day at work followed by errands and hobbies, the last thing anyone wants to do is spend 20 minutes taking of their eye make-up alone.

I was so hopeful when I put it on first I was so hopeful but by the time I got home I was very disappointed.Β  I even gave it a go for a few more days to be sure but I was right from the beginning.

Looks like this one is heading for the bin!
