We Raided Inglot!

Went to Inglot a while back (like 2 or 3 weeks ago?) and only putting up my blog post now! (I know, terrrible)



In case you don't know what Inglot is...It is a Polish make up brand.....which i believe to be amazing!! I got a 10 square eyeshadow palette for €50 and a face palette for €25!

Here's a little info on Inglot.
Inglot is a polish company was established over 25 years ago by a young chemist.
The main aims and objectives were to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices.
He also decided that the point of difference between his product and that of his competition was to be a huge selection
of colours which can be tested and played around with in store.
All INGLOT cosmetics are produced in the EU and over 95% of them in INGLOT's own state of the art facilities.
INGLOT sells its products in over 240 stores worldwide,
such as Canada, Poland, UK, Australia, Turkey, India and Malta, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, New York and of course Ireland.
At present INGLOT has one of the most extensive colour ranges and cosmetic collections in the world.

And what did I get?

Here's a little picture:

Eye Palette








I really do love my eye shadow choices! I mist say it is terrible just trying to pick ten colours, because you want to make sure that you are picking the ones that you really really want! Oh, the dilemma of it all!

Really nice colour pay off, and I'm really looking forward to wearing my 504 on St.Patricks day! (How sad!)
Maybe I'll give it a test run this weekend ;)

Here's some swatches:

I also got a face (contouring palette) which I like aswell, although I find that as soon as you try to get product on to the brush, alot of powder seems to fluff away, which I'm not too happy about! (I don't want to waste product after all!)



Swatches:





Due to the packaging being magnetic, you can stack the palettes, which is handy and just makes it look neat.




Hmmm....maybe another trip to Inglot to look at lipsticks and concealers? Maybe an eye brow wax and powder?? I'll see if I'm being good then treat myself! :)

Hair products I love.....

Ok, let me give you a brief on my hair. I've only started getting highlights in my hair for about 12 months now. Before I've only ever dyed my hair brown or a browny reddish colour. So I've never really had much of a problem with the condition of it regarding dryness. When I started the highlights.....oh dear lord my poor hair was tangled constantly. Trying to comb it after washing it was an absolute nightmare!

For me the only thing that would help was Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner. Now, if it's bad to use it every time you wash your hair. Well then I've committed the sin over and over again! I just simply wash my hair without it. I have used the one for coloured hair and it smells rank. Much prefer the original one. :)
I smooth the stuff in to my hair from just below my ears to the ends of my hair. (I'm trying to grow my hair so I really want to take care of the ends of my hair so they won't need a trim as often)


So whats the next God Send product?


.....Moroccan Oil ( I think I love you)



This is quite possibly the best thing I've ever put in to my hair! It's absolutely AMAZING! Not only does it tame my hair but blow drying it so much easier. Now, to be honest I tend to be quite lazy with my hair, with blow drying  especially and I've often left the house with quite wet hair (obviously not good for you in wintertime!)

But ever since I started dying my hair blonde (highlights) I've noticed a huge change in the texture of my hair and the normal serum wasn't cutting it! So who tells me about this wonderful product? My mum! And thank God she did! I've fallen in love with this product! There's a big difference I notice in my hair when I am styling it, and if I do wear it straight my ends don't look or feel as bad as they used to be! The best part? You only need a little bit of the product and a little goes a long way! I use this product every time I wash my hair, and I simply love it! There are a couple more products from the Moroccan oil collection which I am curious about trying out. For anyone in Ireland you can get Moroccan Oil in some hairdressers or online on http://www.millies.ie/

Now, I've never bought anything from their online store, but if my memory serves me right, they were at the Xposé Xmas Experience in the RDS back in November.

One other product I love to use is Revlon's Equave 2 Phase leave in conditioner...



You can get this stuff in a turquoise colour, (it's the original one), but apparently purple is to help blonde hair have a more clean colour and helps avoid the brassiness.
Again this helps with de-tanglement of my hair! I like to spritz this at the ends of my hair. I don't have alot of patience with sitting there for ages and taking my time with my hair combing etc. So the less tangles, the better :) and I'm happy with the out-come.

These products together....WOW!

What products do you absolutely love to use in your hair?
