In Love with INGLOT!

I have completely fallen in love with INGLOT. I got this 5 pan palette of their eyeshadows at IMATS NYC in April. They more than lived up to all the hype I had been reading and hearing about. The pigment is out of this world and the amount of product you get for the price is amazing. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love NYX products, well INGLOT has come along and evened out the playing field. I have heard so many people say INGLOT is the new MAC and I have to say I totally agree. MAC has decent products but this ideal of them being the standard is about time being challenged. The only thing I don't like about INGLOT is this number system instead of naming their colors. Names would be sooo much better.
The colors in the palette I have all have a shimmer to them, glitter in some cases. I made the mistake of throwing away the plastic casing they come in so I don't remember the numbers unfortunately. (left to right) The Orange is the boldest I have ever had. The next is a Purple.. it's photographing as really Red, it is not that red in person. There is a reddish undertone to this purple but not as pronounced as this picture implies. The Yellow is a perfect primary Yellow. The Blue is very interesting... it's a kind if sky blue yet somewhat deep... it's gorgeous. And the Black is crazy.. in a good way! It's like MAC's Black Tied times 20. It's a very deep dark pigmented black with gold and reddish shimmers throughout... Fabulous!!
It took me a while to really get into the shadows but once I did... Wow! I'm in Love. Since having this palette I've gotten to try their other products and the whole line is excellent. Everything I've tried is of top notch quality. Thankfully we have a store here in Times Square.. which I've stayed away from on purpose... I'm saving it for my birthday. Next month is my birthday and the INGLOT store will be my gift to myself. 
Yes my name is Brittany and I am obsessed. If there's a cure for this I don't want it! LOL
Stay tuned for a Haul :-)

I LOVE These Eyeliners!

I haven't posted in quite sometime, but I'm back! I didn't have a camera for a while and this season I have been very busy. Thank God! LOL Well, I'm choosing one of latest obsessions as the first thing to blog about since my hiatus...  Milani's Liquif'eye Eyeliners... they are Amazing. This is one of those things I kept seeing people review and use in tutorials yet I had never tried them myself. Boy was I missing out.. once I tried them I don't know how I survived without them! 
They go on so smooth & creamy, crazy amazing pigment and once they are on they are ON! As Milani promises they are truly smudge-proof. Once applied if you want to smudge them out move quickly because after 60 seconds or less they don't budge. They are similar to Urban Decay's 24/7 Pencil in this respect. Even if you like using MakeUp Forever's Aqua Liner this would be a good dupe.. they are not waterproof like the MUFE pencil but unless your swimming it would work fine. 
I had an allergy attack one night wearing this liner, wiped my eyes several times... liner was intact!
At $7 a pop it's half the price or less than the other two. Big thumbs up, A must have!
