Inglot in More Depth...

Well here's my last post of the year!

Actually going to show some more accurate photos of my Inglot palette.
Top Row: Matte 378, Matte 362, D.S. 491, Pearl 428, AMC 57
Bottom Row: D.S 504, Matte 384, AMC 66, AMC 50, AMC 74

Both of those swatches are without a primer. I have to say that these eyeshadows are insanely pigmented. They're also pretty easy to work with. I used them in a FOTD tonight and hopefully I'll have a picture to post tomorrow since I'm kind of in a rush.

Before I got those eyeshadows, the only other thing I own that is made by Inglot is their stippling brush. Two actually.
Sorry it's pink..used it with super bright blush

I was looking for an alternative to the MAC 187 brush and ended up stopping into Inglot in NYC and bought two of those. I don't own the 187 to compare it to though. I don't remember how much I paid for this though since I bought it during the summer. I think the price was around $30 though, but don't quote me on that.

When I first got it, for the first few washes it did shed a little bit, but since they I really haven't had any issues with shedding. I use this brush for really pigmented brushes and it serves its purpose well. I also use one for my foundation once in a while and I really like the finish that it produces. Another big plus for me is that it doesn't shed when I'm using it with my liquid, which one of my very first stippling brushes did.

So over all I can say that I have had very pleasant experiences with Inglot and I am glad that I FINALLY got to try out their shadows despite living so close to a store. I'm also glad that they do phone orders because I have a feeling that I might be ordering some more shadows from them in the near future.

Anyhow, I hope everyone has had a good 2010 and will be having fun ringing in 2011 tonight safely.

Take care and see you next year!



Santa (aka Boyfriend) dropped off my Christmas present today!

It's a little yellow in here with the light but.... I'm super excited and I can't wait to play with them. I just wish I knew which one was which lol.

Nails and Eyebrows...

Made a visit to MAC for their eyebrow pencil. I decided that the one I had been using was a tad bit too dark. So..I picked one up in Stud. Was perfect! And since I always feel that some things should come in pairs, I picked up Electric Eel eyeshadow since I normally never buy any blues. I've been on a purple kick for two months now.

Electric Eel and Stud

Did my brows and filled them in finally!

NARS Giza Swatch

I hate not updating regularly, but finals are beating me upside my head. I'm finished Friday though and after one more day of work, I'll be home on Sunday.
Since I'm not coming back next semester, I'm also in the process of packing up all of my things to move out.

A part of me really doesn't believe that I finished school a semester early. I don't think it will hit me until everybody is moving back in in January and I'm not....Its so surreal...I still don't know what I want to do with my life!!! Or tomorrow...or even today!

Actually no...Today I want to attempt to deep condition and then twist up my hair..

But you get the point I'm sure....

Anyway, how about a lip swatch of what I think is the most used lipgloss in my FOTDs?


plus this..

It's Done! It's Beginning! + FOTD

The day of my JLPT has finally come and gone. This year I took N2 and it was absolutely brutal. I knew I wouldn't be ready but...sheesh~. I think I could've done okay on the new N3 level but I always feel as though if I passed the lower level that doesn't exactly tell me how far away I am from passing the higher one. So when I get my grades back in March-ish...I'll know exactly where and how much work I need to put in. Don't get me wrong though...I will be starting soon anyway.

This isn't the last you'll see of me N2! 
Here's two recent faces of me...

Girl About Town and Strawberry Fields lips..its not as red as it looks actually..its pink!

Tempting and Last Call eyeshadows

Now that the test is kicks off my finals! Last day of classes is this week...last final is Dec.17th..

I'll be around though. Hope everyone had a good weekend~
