Inglot recently released the ‘Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows’ collection, a new formula for the brand which is part of the 10 year anniversary celebration.  The 10 shades are unique to the brand and inspired by their loose pure pigment range.

The amazing feature of this release is that you have the option to purchase all 10 shades, along with the limited edition Inglot 10 Palette (discounted to £56, usual price £65) or buy shades individually (£5 each).  It’s not often you have the choice over which shades you select, as there are times when you purchase a palette but only want – or end up using – some of them.

The Cream Pressed Pigment eyeshadows are available for purchase elsewhere in the world, if you live outside the UK and Ireland.  The ‘Inglot 10’ palette isn’t available for purchase if you aren’t in the UK or Ireland.  However, Inglot is instead offering a Freedom System Partylicious Palette, along with 10% off when you purchase the full set of 10 eyeshadows.

This post is slightly mixed, in that whilst I think these eyeshadows are amazing, there are some issues with them. I’ve discussed the versatile and beautifully sparkly nature of these eyeshadows, as well as the issues concerning their fragility, in the post in detail below.  I think the eyeshadows are definitely worth getting but it is helpful to know about the issues I have found so you can make a more informed choice on whether to purchase them.

Kiko ‘Green Me Collection’: 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette (re-released in 2019)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last year, I posted about the Kiko 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette, which was part of Kiko’s limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection. Kiko has released the Green Me collection again this year and included the 02 Feisty Saffron Palette.  I thought it would be helpful to flag up my post from last year, in case you are considering purchasing this palette.  I thought that this palette was a great smaller and cheaper alternative to Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette and Tarte’s Toasted Palette.  

Last year’s post included a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko.  Click here to see the post.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette

I recently purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette as I found the colour scheme incredibly appealing.  The palette has the most beautiful mix of colourful shimmers and colourful mattes, alongside more neutral-toned shades.  The blend of shades enables you to take your looks in all sorts of directions, whether you want to go all out with colour or go more neutral.  I’ve felt so inspired by the colour scheme that I been using it again and again for my eyeshadow looks!

NYX Swear By It Eyeshadow Palette

I purchased the new NYX Swear By It Eyeshadow Palette at the end of January 2019 (you can see my sneak peek post here) and since then, I been using it regularly for my eyeshadow looks.  The palette includes 40 eyeshadows in a wide spectrum of colours, from neutrals, brights and smoky hues.  I’m planning on posting some look combinations using the palette soon, so keep an eye out for these!

I think this palette is a fantastic buy for anyone looking to create a wide variety of looks and have an incredible choice over shades.  You can use the palette for creating simple or complex looks, natural combinations, smoky eyes, adding the odd pop of colour or go all out with colour.

One point worth mentioning is that whilst there is a huge choice in shades, there are some small gaps in colours within the palette (more details in the rest of the post).  It’s not a deal breaker for me but if you’re looking for a palette that has ALL colour families (particularly cool-toned purples and light, icy blues) then this might not be the right fit for you.

Neutrals With Pink (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been wearing a lot of bright eyeshadow combinations recently so I fancied trying something more neutral today.  I used shades from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette for the eyes and finished the look off with a hot pink lipstick and pink blusher to add some vibrancy.

To complement the look: I used MAC Dollymix Blusher on the cheeks, MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter to highlight the cheekbones and Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick in Homecoming Queen on the lips (you can read more about the Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipsticks here).

Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadows

I recently picked up a few of the Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadows in a 3 for 2 deal and I’ve really been enjoying using them.  These products can be used just as their name states; apply them as a liquid eyeliner or blend them out on to the lid for a sparkly eyeshadow look.

I think this product is a great way to experiment with your look, whether you choose to wear it as a bold, metallic liner along your lashline or if you like to smudge it out for a soft, gentle sparkle on the lid.  The wide choice in shades (16 on the Rimmel site) also means you can mix it up however you choose.

Glimmer and Shimmer With MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows

 

MAC Shiny Pretty Things Eyeshadows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAC has released a new formulation of eyeshadow – Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow – as part of their Holiday 2018 ‘Shiny Pretty Things’ collection.  I bought one eyeshadow (Make a Wish) to try and ended up going back for two more as they are stunning!

If you are looking for a product which is ultra shiny, sparkly and pigmented, then I highly recommend trying the Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows! These eyeshadows impart a opaque coat of glitz on the lids with just a simple patting on with a finger or a brush.  I’ve not used a glittery eyeshadow before where been able to get a high impact, opaque finish so quickly and easily!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you dislike the feel or look of liquid foundations on your skin, then I highly recommend trying out the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup.  I’ve found myself reaching for this foundation on a regular basis, as I just love the consistency, feel, look and finish on my skin.  I generally prefer to wear face powder or powder foundations on a daily basis, so to find a liquid foundation that I actually like wearing shows me that this product is something special!

The formula is so comfortable, lightweight and natural looking that it is hard to believe I am wearing a liquid foundation.  Add to that the fresh, radiant and healthy look it gives to my skin and I think Urban Decay are on to a real winner with this product!

I have an article on the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer on the site which you can find here. I’m planning on updating the post as I wrote it back in 2016, so keep an eye out for the updated version soon!

I have been looking for ideas for new posts and found this make-up tag on a UK beauty and lifestyle blog I came across recently (lablogbeaute.co.uk).  I really enjoy reading this type of posts on other sites and I thought it might be a nice way for you all to get to know me better.  I’ve reduced the number of questions to 12 so my post isn’t too long.  Hope you enjoy reading the post!

I’ve pasted the questions at the end of the post, so feel free to let me know your answers in the comments section below.  It’s always nice to get to know more about readers too :o) .

The Chocolate Series (Updated!)

 

Blueberry Chocolate

Caramel Chocolate

Mint Chocolate

 

 

 

 

 

Plum Chocolate

Cherry Chocolate

 

 

 

 

 

 

I put together The Chocolate Series back in 2015 to show how experimenting with a different lid colour could easily change up an existing look.  I thought it would be fun to re-do the series by updating the close-up of eye photos, adding in full face photos and giving suggestions for cheek and lip colours for each look. 

This post provides a short summary of each look and two face photos for each combination.  You can also click on the links for each look to view more details on how to re-create that particular look and see what cheek and lip products I used.

For all looks, I used medium and deep chocolate browns in the crease, a pale pink-nude to highlight and the same application technique.  I used the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette to create these looks but you can use any brand of eyeshadow you like which has similar shades.

If you are interested in how these combinations look on other people, then I’d recommend taking a look at @shinebridabeauty on Instagram! @shinebridabeauty tagged me to show she was inspired by The Chocolate Series and re-created the looks on her Instagram page.  It’s so wonderful to see the combinations on someone else.  @shinebridabeauty also uses different products, which that you don’t need the same items to re-create a look.  She also came up with her own extra Chocolate look – Coconut Chocolate – so look out for that one on her Instagram page!
