Quad palette 'Aspen' - £21.50*

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I'm a big fan of newcid cosmetics and have featured them numerous times on here. It's a brand I rate really highly and after finding myself researching for their items more and more it's safe to say their up there with my favourites. I already own one of their eye shadow quads (choca mocha) which I use all the time so when this one (aspen) popped through my letterbox over the weekend I was excited to see if it was just as good. Usually I wait a few weeks trying a product before giving it a review but with already owning the other palette and knowing the quality of New Cid products, 3 days of using it is enough to say how much I love it. The quality, wear time and pigmentation is just good as choca mocha which doesn't surprise me in the slightest! Even though they're a powered shadows there's no fall out at all and to me they have a slight creamy consistency, there's a mixture of matte and shimmer too. It's a perfect little palette for a smokey eye and it's certainly the right size for traveling. I'm so pleased I own this palette too as now I have a day one and a night one which is perfect for carrying in my handbag or when I go away. I know it's not cheap, but I would recommend them 100% and i promise you won't be disappointed!

Have you tried these eye shadows? What do you think?
