Inglot Haul & Review

I got these Inglot products quite a while ago and finally got to doing a post about them. Sorry about the absence ladies, just been busy with my life lately.

Anyhow, I originally planned to get only the liquid blush however also got tempted to try their foundation. I used to despise liquid foundations before, however lately I have been into them and obsessively am on the look for any 'promising' foundation. I do not like to use the already hyped foundations but love to experiment with different especially 'neglected' brands which retail for less and still provide me with a 'sheer glow' *wink wink*.

Coming to the foundation, this is the only shade you will match if you are a NC30-35. They have quite a range of colors overall but with an obvious gap within the shades. I am not in love with this foundation but I do not dislike it too. It blends with ease, provides a medium to full coverage which is pretty rare to find in foundations these days and gives a semi-matte (is that a word?) effect. Its neither too dewy nor matte hence great for those of you with oily/combination skin.

The reason I am not in love with this foundation is because it has an obvious greyish undertone to it because of which it appears horrendous in flash and makes me appear paler. This would be the only con to it so if you match the color you would be more than lucky! You can also see different colored shimmer particles in the foundation which you will usually see in an illuminator. This means it has light reflecting particles which will give the illusion of an even skintone and even avoid the use of an illuminator.

As for the blush, I was in awe of it since the first time I had seen it. I mean I have not come accross a liquid blush EVER! I knew I had to get this. Well I must say, I am not impressed but am not disappointed either. The conistency of the blush is like a foundation which is pretty awesome as it will blend easily and wont appear obviously different from your foundation. It leaves a gorgeous luminous dewy finish. They are available in a tempting range of colors which are hard to decide on. I chose a peachy-brown shade similar to Mac's Lilicent blush.

Again the reason why I am not completely impressed is due to the conistency of the product which is overtly runny. It is so thin that one pump becomes impossible to blend into the skin as it does not sink in and simply sits on the top of the skin. You have to to apply it with a skunk brush and then pat the blush to make it blend. I would prefer Mac Cream blushes over these any day.

Overall decent purchases but I doubt I will repurchase unless I find a better way of applying the blush and a closer match in the foundation. I am wearing both the foundation and the blush in the picture above.

Inglot Foundation - £12
Liquid Blush - £8

there is a big inglot store near where I work which I was going to check out. I know that MUFE have recently launched a liquid blush as well - maybe that will work out better than this one?
