A couple of weeks ago I headed to the Adelphi theatre to see The Bodyguard the musical. Now, as horrifying as some of you may find this, I have never seen the film. I know, I know. I’ve also never seen Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing or Ghost in their entirety – what can I say, I’m more of a Judd Apatow kind of girl. I’m happy to report though, that it didn’t matter one bit. I am a bit of a musical lover having been brought up on Rogers & Hammerstein films and being taken on annual theatre trips to London with my Mum & Nana as far back as I can remember. We’d make sure we went to the theatre every year without fail and see something new, so although a lot of people find musical theatre quite cheesy I bloody love it! It’s the kind of thing you just have to let go and have fun to enjoy and it soon seems normal that people are bursting into song every two minutes.
So what’s this got to do with makeup? Well New CID (creators of one of my most-loved foundations) are the official makeup sponsors of the show and they made up all the actors and actresses for the promo shots. They have released a set of products inspired by the musical containing three long-wear cream eyeshadows (L-R Melody, Diva & Spotlight) and two lipglosses (L-R Romance & Obsession). I was already a fan of the i-Colour shadows (Twilight was my previous favourite although Melody is giving it a run for it’s money!) and the glosses are lovely and come with their trademark mirror on the side and light up when you use them. This whole kit retails at a bargain £35 (worth £76.50) which is great, and the cream shadows are my personal favourites.
You can check out New CID here or in Debenhams, I’d also recommend The Bodyguard Musical if you fancy a good girls night out complete with shimmying in the aisles at the end.
