The only thing I do is ensure I only use Zoya’s Remove+ as my nail polish remover of choice. I don’t use any cuticle oils, creams, etc. or treatments for the actual nails.  When I was much younger, I remember using Sally Hansen’s Nail Strengthener, but I don’t find I need anything for my nails really.

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #397, 407, 393, 395 (Oranges/Peaches)


Inglot #397

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #397, 407, 393, 395 (Oranges)

These are some of the more orange/peach shades from Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range. I wish Inglot would add color descriptions for their eyeshadows online, because I think it would enhance the buying experience and–at the very least–give us some indication of what to expect!

Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen. The pearl finish is probably my favorite of Inglot’s finishes, because it has the right mix of color payoff and texture. It’s soft, smooth, and very blendable. These four shades are true-to-formula, though I did find that #393 and 395 were much lighter swatched than they appeared in the pan.

  • 397 is a warm, peachy beige with a pearl finish.
  • 407 is a orange-coral with peachy gold sheen with a pearl finish. It’s like a much more orange version of NARS Orgasm or MAC Melon pigment. This shade has more dimension than the majority of Inglot’s line, just because it’s more of a mix of two colors. It is one of my favorite shades I’ve swatched thus far!
  • 393 is a pale yellowed peach with a pearl finish. It looks more orange in the pan, but when swatched, it’s much yellower. It has a very noticeable white sheen, which is what seems to give it that lighter, more yellowed look.
  • 395 is the palest of orange, because it has a high white shimmer/sheen so it looks really, really light. It’s more like white with a hint of peach-orange. Like #393, it looks more orange in the pan.

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #423, 452, 450, 399, 431 (Reds/Pinks)


Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #423, 452, 450, 399, 431

Today, I wanted to take a look at a few of Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.). The Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen. The pearl finish is probably my favorite of Inglot’s finishes, because it has the right mix of color payoff and texture. It’s soft, smooth, and very blendable. All of the shades featured in this post applied beautifully; really intense color delivered in a silky smooth formula. For the most part, the shimmer was incredibly fine and the sheen pearled.

  • 423 is a smoldering burgundy-tinged brown with a pearl finish.
  • 452 is a medium-dark burgundy-red with a pearl finish. It reminded me of MAC Cranberry.
  • 450 is a medium-dark raspberry pink with a pearl finish.
  • 399 is a muted, played down pink with a little mauve and in a pearl finish.
  • 431 is a light, pastel pink with a bright, frosted white sheen. It is a pearl finish, but I found the sheen more metallic than pearly with this shade.

When I decided that I would work through Inglot’s eyeshadow line and swatch through it, 20-pan palettes were the largest available, so that is what I went with. I like symmetry, so I’ll be sticking with those sizes. The 20-pan palette is a little larger than my hand–the palette measures 6 3/4″ x 6″. The palette is sturdy and hefty with strong magnets to keep the eyeshadows locked in place along with the frosted lid, which is also held on by magnets. My biggest issue with the strength of the magnets is that it’s difficult to move the pans around once you’ve placed them in there. I have to use tweezers and be very, very careful around the edge (there is just not much room to work). You can use the magnetic part of the lid to remove, but for me, my hands are too shaky to do that.

Pricing might seem confusing at first — if you intend to purchase a palette, then the pans are $7.00 each for 1-2, $5.00 each for 3-9, and $4.50 each if you purchase 10 or more. Online, you’re able to purchase as much or as little as you want, while in-store you have to fill whatever palette you purchase (which can be frustrating if you want to keep your finishes separate!). I did notice, though, if you intend to purchase more than one palette, you’ll end up paying the full price of the second palette and get no discount for filling it when you buy online. If you did this in-store, you would still get the discounted price of the palette ($5.00).

Shipping is free both online and in-store for purchases over $150. You can also purchase the eyeshadows individually in round pots for $12.00 each. Both the pans and the pots contain 0.09 oz. of product. The palettes range from 2-pan to 20-pan online, but 40-pan palettes are available in-store. I expect the online store to eventually carry the 40-pan palettes in the next month or so. If you purchase in-store, be prepared to lay out $185 for a filled 40-pan palette.

Sunday Link Love, Volume #058

Happy Sunday!

Today’s a quiet day for us — yesterday, my boyfriend’s brother and friend came down for fight night. Mellan had a great time, though, because the three boys threw the football around and Mellan and his brother-from-another-mother, Neptune, ran between them trying to grab the ball (neither was successful). Hope you’re having a good Sunday!
