I was up in the Big Smoke (i.e. Dublin to all non-Culchies out there) yesterday for work and as usual was unable to resist the urge to visit one of the Inglot counters there. And of course do damage to my poor credit card 0_o
I went prepared with a big nerdy list of all the shadows I already own, in numerical & texture order. This was to avoid repurchasing any shades I already have, which I had done a few times previously.
I had had a look on the website and had jotted down a few shades of the matte shadows that I didn't already have in my collection, and brought this list along with me also.
8 of the 10 shadows I got were from that list and the other two I just liked the look of when I saw the testers.

Swatches of the above eyeshadows....

The eyeshadows' payoff is, as usual, really strong and they are lovely & soft to the touch. They can look a tad chalky when swatched & heaped up on the skin but I just don't find this a problem when I use them on the eyes.
Of course I wasn't able to stop myself at just the eyeshadows so I picked up a new blusher, a body sparkle (super fine glitter) & an eye pencil.

I fell in love with the above blusher shade the second I saw it! I had just been saying to a friend how I missed my MAC 'Well Dressed' blusher, which would probably be a little more sheer than the Inglot one but they are very similar, and Inglot is quite a bit less expensive than MAC here in Ireland. So it was the perfect purchase!
The Body Sparkles from Inglot are very like the MAC Pro Reflects Glitters, maybe a small bit finer. They are beautiful products that look stunning on the skin! I picked up a white shade with a golden/yellow undertone.
The AMC Eye Pencil is the only disappointment of the batch. I originally wanted the turquoise gel liner, but this was out-of-stock when the girl went to add it to my pile. So I decided to go for the turquoise EyePencil instead but when I got home I was saddened to discover that she had mistakenly given me a dark blue/navy shade instead :( Not a colour I would have picked, and being the Plonker I am, I went ahead and swatched it on my hand so I'm stuck with it now! Oh well, can't win 'em all!
Anyhow, as usual, I was met with fantastic customer service and very friendly, non-pushy retail assistants. It's always a pleasure to shop at the Inglot counter in Jervis Street Shopping Centre.
Planning a trip to Limerick in a week or 2 so may pick up a few more bits then!
Anyhow, below are pictures of a makeup look I did earlier using the purple shadows & the body sparkle. Really impressed by the quality as usual!
Will be filming a video of all my Inglot palettes really soon as I re-organised them all today so keep an eye out for that!
In the mean time,
