Inglot & Mac Products I'm Trying Out...

The reason I didn't blog at all yesterday - An all day shopping trip with my friend. For a change, my haul wasn't all makeup. I just bought a few items from Mac and Inglot and some clothes ~ One fabulous & most expensive dress I've ever bought and one cheapest fabulous dress I've ever bought ;)

By the way, I wasn't tempted by Mac Petticoat & Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish from the recent In The Groove Collection, coz.... well, I didn't like them AT ALL! I mean, wth was the fuss all about?! I swatched them and almost felt guilty that my heart didn't sing hallelujah. It's also a shame that I could have easily gotten them but didn't, when some other people who really really want them are pouting coz they're either sold out or not available in their country :(

Anyways, the first item is an Inglot Freedom Palette of 3 eyeshadows. You can customize anything you want in the freedom palettes: Eyeshadows, Lipsticks, Concealers, Eyebrow Powders and Wax, Blushes, Pressed Powders.


It's so fun (and confusing!) to hand-pick shades and have your very own customized palette. I'm not a fan of single eyeshadows, which is why I don't buy them much. I prefer my eyeshadows  in a palette.


Inglot Freedom Eyeshadow Palette (Rs.1200)

Each eyeshadow cost Rs.300 and you pay another 300 for the palette
Inglot eyeshadows has 3 finishes: Double Sparkle, Pearl & Matte.

After about 40 minutes (!), I fickle-mindedly finalised my palette.  

DS 500, DS465, Pearl 444

I've yet to use them on my eyes, but I'm quite liking the textures and pigmentation of these so far.


Swatches: 500, 465, 444


I've wanted to try an arched eyeliner brush since forever and I've only seen one at Inglot here in Delhi, so I finally bought one.

Eyeliner Brush 30T (Rs.640)



I love how Inglot pack their brushes. Sterilized and tightly packed (unlike MAC brushes :\)



The only Mac product I got is the Fix+, a 'love it or hate it' product. I had to find out for myself whether it deserves the hype or the diss


Mac Fix+ Skin Refresher/Finishing Mist (Rs.900)



So, those are things I'll be using a lot now.

Enjoy your weekend =)

  4. Inglot is such a value for money brand IMO...A trio comparable to MAC quality with just as much variety and a third the price!!Their outlet in select city walk is like a colour factory- i go crazy with the nailpaints over there!

  9. I <33 inglot eyeshadows. They are so pigmented and blend like a dream. I'll have to go to another province to get Inglot in Canada, but I am willing to do that too :P

    And let me know what you think about Fix+. I loved it in summers in Delhi. It remains cool despite the 45 degree weather. I don't use it as a setting spray.
    Looking forward to your reviews.

  12. AOYV ~ Ya they are so pigmented n beautiful! Will review it after I've used it for a while for sure

    SnC~ haha...I thought about that but felt lazy :P. Maybe next time

    Rajni~ That's a great tip, thanks! Will try it. Actually most of their face brushes felt scratchy (the testers) so I'm not so impressed coz I guess that's how they'll be after a while. Their Duo fibre brush looks ok though,

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
