Some Goodies that I Never Posted, Sorry!!!

Inglot Cosmetics
www.inglotusa.com

Inglot Cosmetics has become the NEW "IT" makeup brand and everyone has been buzzing about it.  Sadly, I didn't get a chance to buy from them during the makeup events in NYC due to being over crowded.  I must say that Inglot must have been the busiest booth at that time.  Therefore, I visited there store in Times Square, NYC and I was AMAZED!!!  This line carries so many products from eye shadow to nail polish in every shade and texture (matte & shimmer) that you can think of.  There powder (eyeshadow/blush) is blendable and not "chalky" at all.  They also carry tools and false eyelashes, but what they're really well known for is for there "FREEDOM SYTSTEM" palette (I will show below).  First, there signature shopping bag is very similar to Sephora, which is another 'Makeup4us' lovely store.

3 eyeshadow Freedom Palette

Twist to open

AWESOME COLORS!!!!

Can you see how awesome!!!!!!

Swatches with NO BASE!!  All Matte Colors - L to R  #321 (Dk Blue); #383 (Apricot); #318 (White)

Pigment #35

 BEAUTIFUL!!!

WASN'T LYING! LOL

Inglot's products doesn't have names instead it has numbers (just like Make Up Forever).  The Freedom System palette comes in different sizes from 2 eyeshadows to 40 eyeshadows and you can customize it choosing your favorite colors.  I must say these palettes are great for traveling, however, it is heavy.  The palette has magnets so you can stack each palette together, which is awesome cause it will save so much space.  In addition, the packaging is so tight that you really don't have to worry about your eyeshadow breaking inside the palette.  You can even customize a lip palette (they have beautiful colors).  Besides the Freedom palette, Inglot does carry individual eyeshadows and lipsticks.  You should most definetly check out there website or store. I highly recommend this brand if you haven't yet already, lol.


Revlon Eyeshadow Palette



Soft pestal colors with a touch of taupe brownish/gray



A bit bolder colors starting from L to R dk gray; lt. gray; pearl white; meduim blue; and lt. blue


Many people will use coral/pastel eyeshadows during spring and summer, but I'm completely the opposite.  I'm a sucker for coral/pastel colors during fall and winter (I don't know why!).  This palette consists of 5 matte colors and I believe it retails at any drug store for $13.00 (I know for a fact I didn't pay that price so make sure to look at your local drug store circular for special deals).  I also bought a palette of 'Blues' and gray because BLUE is my favorite color.  It's a pefect size to carry and the consistancy is really nice.  Each contains four shadows and a liner (in a cute cableknit finish, no less) that are packed with shea and jojoba conditioners to protect your eyes from the elements.  You can create a beautiful smokey look using either palette.

 Sally Hassen Crackle Nail Polish 

Move over OPI because Sally Hassen is in town!!  Ever since OPI launched Katti Perry's Black Crackle, it brought back old school to new school.  Honestly, I never even heard about the crackle back in my younger days until now.  At first, I didn't care for it, then when I did it was completely sold out.  Finally, I came across Sally Hassen's crackle and saw all the colors the line had.  It was on sale for $4.99 at CVS and I believe the original price runs from $8 to $9 dollars so these are a few that I picked up:

Colors from L to R: Black, White, Silver and Gold

Naughty Girl?????




I've been using many makeup brands that I have put away and the one I used for this look is 'Devious' from BitchSlap Cosmetics. It was a simple look using the matte black eyeshadow in the 'Devious' palette, black pencil 'zero' from Urban Decay and glitter 'Chrome Yellow' from MAC.

Simply use the eyeliner to out line your eyes (wing) and blending/dragging the color on the lid. Continue doing this process until your satisfaction. Then using NYX jumbo pencil 'Black Bean' cover your entire eye lid. Then apply the black eyeshadow. Make sure to clean up very well. Then apply the glitter wet in the area of the eye. Last, apply your favorite false eyelashes and mascara and you're done! To make it "pop" make sure to apply the black eyeliner in your waterline (and your bottom lash line if you like)

On my face, I used Revlon Color Stay Foundation, U.D Razor Powder, Bitchslap Bronzer 'Congo' and MAC blush.

On my lips, I kept it natural with a pale lipstick and a bit of gloss.

And last, DON'T forget to accessorized!!! I have my long black feather earrings and cute yellow bee necklace.
