Inglot | Love Palette

I have become completely obsessed with Inglot over the past few months, and I have some other products that I am dying to blog about. But the one that has been a complete staple in my make-up routine the past couple of weeks has been their limited edition Love palette that they released for Christmas. I picked this up in the Black Friday sale and have not reached for another palette since. This palette is exclusive to Ireland and Inglot put together a selection of their best selling eyeshadows into one perfect palette. 

This palette is just absolutely beautiful. There are a mixture of both matte and shimmery shades here, perfect for creating any kind of eye look. Every shade in the palette works so well together and they are all surprisingly easy to work with. I have been obsessed with wearing the matte browns paired with the cranberry shade. The champagne highlighter is gorgeous for under the brow and for the inner corner highlight. The shades are all really nicely pigmented and they blend perfectly. The colours are so well picked, Inglot did such a good job creating this palette and pairing the shades together. As you can see from the pictures the shadows are pigmented without being powdery, and I haven't gotten any fall-out while applying or wearing these shades.

There are so many looks you can create with this palette, from an everyday neutral eye to a smokey night out look to a colourful eye look. If you are starting out in make-up or even want to start out with Inglot eye-shadows, this is definitely the palette to go for. Priced at €75 and is available online and in store. I'm not sure how much longer it will be available so if you have your eye on it, snap it up quick before it goes!

November Beauty Favourites

How is it nearly Christmas already? I swear it was only the Summer last week! I feel so unprepared for this month's favourites, because I just feel that the month has gone by so quickly! I am a couple of days late with the favourites this month, but I hope you don't mind and are still interested in the products I have been loving!

MAC Honey Love Lipstick
I have been absolutely obsessed with finding the perfect nude lip, and MAC has been my go-to place for all things neutral lately. I picked up Honey Love after seeing it on a few peoples Instagram's and after looking at a few swatches online I thought it would be a good one to go for, for my slightly paler complexion. It has a matte finish which means it lasts so well through out the day- I always prefer a matte lip because you have the option add a gloss on top if you want. I would describe this as a cool toned creamy brown that I would imagine would suit the majority of skin tones. I love pairing this with MAC's lipliner in Whirl underneath for a little bit more definition.

Inglot Love Palette
Just look at it. Words can not describe how beautiful this palette is in real life. Exclusive to Ireland, Inglot have released a limited edition eye-shadow palette for Christmas. It contains ten of their most popular shades, so it is perfect for those of you looking to start out in Inglot make-up. Every one of the shadows are amazingly pigmented. They are a perfect selection of colours which all go beautifully together. I have been loving the warmer shades the past couple of weeks and I'm really looking forward to wearing this more over the festive season.

MAC "Oh Darling" Highlighter
This highlighter has taken the beauty world by storm this month, and I was so lucky to get my hands on it at the launch night at MAC. This has since sold out worldwide and is the highlighter that everyone has been talking about. I have been flicking between this and Soft and Gentle, also by MAC this month. This has been my more (ahem) subtle option. It does have less glitter in it than Soft and Gentle and offers more of a natural(ish) sheen to the cheeks.

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
I rediscovered this mascara after not using it for a couple of months. I fell in love with it all over again. It gives my lashes amazing volume and thickness without looking clumpy. I love the brush on this mascara, it allows me to get all lashes evenly coated with minimal effort. It is one of those mascaras which I always seem to go back to, that never lets me down.


Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
I have been on the hunt for a dupe for my beloved (but expensive) NARS Sheer Glow for awhile now. The closest I have found is this foundation from Rimmel. It has recently been reformulated to include a new pore blurring technology. To be honest I don't notice much of a difference between this and the original. It gives medium buildable coverage which I find perfect for day-to-day wear. I find it lasts really well throughout the day and it also has a very similar finish to the Sheer Glow too.


Let me know if you would like to see a December favourites at the end of next month or a yearly favourites.

MAC Huggable Glosses

MAC parcels are always the best parcels to come through the letterbox. When the new Huggable Lip Glosses* arrived through the door I was very excited to give them a go. Lipglosses were never something that I had tried before from MAC so I didn't know what to expect. I have heard mixed reviews but when I seen that all the shades were right up my street I had to take pictures straight away so I could get them on my lips. 

These are part of a new collection that will be released in January 2016 called the Huggable Lip collection. The Glosses will be €22 each and there are about twelve different shades coming. The ones that I received are "Love Buzz" a gorgeous deep fushia shade, " Marvel-Lush" a blue toned pastel pink and "Embrace-able Me" is a pastel coral shade. The two lighter shades are exactly what I like in lip colours, so these are the the two that I have been reaching for. 

On first application I found that these lip-glosses do have a slight gritty texture which I wasn't a huge fan to begin with but I discovered as the day went on that this texture make them seriously long lasting. They didn't slip or slide away like regular glosses tend to. The colours are gorgeous, and so vivid on the lips. They have a very thick creamy consistency with that slight graininess to it which helps it stick around. The applicator is a very long, flat doe-foot applicator which makes it so easy to get an even layer of colour and to outline the lips evenly. 

I am so excited for this collection to go on counters, there is a massive selection of shades in the lipgloss line as well as a range of lipsticks. There is going to be something for everyone so definitely check it out when it arrives!
