Mini Haulage - AGAIN!!! :S...MAC, Inglot etc

Inglot Freedom Palette
Inglot e/s swatches
Mac's Texture e/s
Swatch - No 7's Lip Liner in Caramel 30
I know!! Mini haul again!! I need to stop doing this. But I cant resist picking up some makeup junk now and then :S I am sure many of you share my problem =)

To the point. I got a brush, eyeshadows and some lippies.

Brushes - After using some Cosmopolitan brushes I decided to get their powder brush and am seriously liking it. Its not super soft and is kinda scratchy but highly efficient! It's working wonders for my mineral foundation (gives full coverage), bronzer, blush and powder which = multifunctional = ♥ Definately check this out!

Also needed an extra foundation brush so tried the Autograph range by M & S. The brush looks so sleek firstly. Secondly its not that stiff and is kinda flexible, hence provides light to medium coverage with Mac's Studio Tech which I am currently drooling on right now. Its great for cream foundations as It does not absorb much product and gives a light streak free finish.

Bold
Eyeshadows - Finally got my hands on Mac's Texture! It might look a scary bricky orange in the pan but is the perfect crease color for all skin colors, dare I say even better than Satin Taupe :S as it will work with any possible color in the color spectrum. Plus its got a velvet finish and like all Mac shadows blends like a dream. Get it now ladies!

Also I wanted to try Inglot from quite a while, so took advantage of their 'freedom system' and got a custom eyeshadow palette of 5 for just £15!!! I seriously exclaimed hard when the MA told me the price lol. I mean come on, 5 eyeshadow pans and the sleek high quality magnetic palette with an inbuilt mirror all for that price came as a shocker.

The shadows I chose all have a shimmery finish, highly similar to Mac's veluxe pearl finish or Nars shadows. The colors in their range are stunning and the pigmentation is awesome as seen in the pic (w/o base). They are slightly more shimmery and some of you's might prefer to wear this at night outs! They do have a slight fallout and last slightly less longer than Mac shadows, but for the price no one can beat them! Try them out for colors you dont want to spend a lot of money on.

Lippies - Since a past week or something, I am obsessed with wearing lipliners all over my lips as lipsticks and am loving the result! I prefer a matte finish on my lips and these provide for the purpose and last all day long too w/o smudging or wearing off. You should try this guys! The two liners am loving for this purpose are No 7's Lipliner in Caramel (an earthy reddish brown) and 17's Lipliner in Buff (a nude mauvey pink, not in the pic above). Pure love ♥

Overall am a happy bunny with my purchases =)

Hope you enjoyed gurlies!

It's a blessing to have access to Inglot, lol. I haven't seen it in person, but heard a lot about it. How do you like yours?

Shifa said...

@ Halifax - I only have one store available in proximity which is in Westfield Mall. The store is super kewl, with helpful MA's. The shadows are great for the price, very similar to MAC ones but cheaper =) Also they have amazing liquid blushers available in bottles which are awesome and am gone try em soon too!

Hey! Love to read your haul posts!MAC texture appears to be a perfect colour for the crease and I really like the idea of customised palettes from Inglot! I haven't bought anything from Inglot yet but once I get a chance to visit london I will def be getting these for myself! xoxo
