INGLOT -DIY Eyeshadow Palette (Review of Shadows and Experience)

What fun!  I loved going to the Inglot boutique in The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to create my Inglot Palette.  You walk into the store and there is so much to choose from.  They have everything from eyelashes, lipsticks, concealers, blushes and of course eyeshadow.

I was after the eyeshadow so that is what I picked up.  After doing a lot of research and looking at what other people had gotten, I felt ready enough to conquer the massive amount of eyeshadow choices and narrow it down to just 10 eyeshadows.  I did cheat a little by getting three rainbow colors.  The rainbow colors have three separate shades in them, but that still counts as one, right????

Ok, so you go in and they hand you a magnetic board.  You pick up the eyeshadows that you want and place them on the board.  When you have chosen the ones you want you take them to the counter, they get new eyeshadows out for you and return the used ones to the store display.  You purchase the palette and your individual shadows and you are off to put your palette together…..at home.  They were not helping anyone put their eyeshadows in their palettes at the store where I was shopping.  However, it was super easy to do, you just take them out of their packaging and pop them into the palette.  Easy as pie:)

Now, a 10 shadow palette is going to run you around $75.  You pay around $15 for the palette and around $5 for each eyeshadow, with the exception of the rainbow shadows which run around $7 each.  You can find these stores in New York and Las Vegas, but if you can’t make it to one of these awesome cities, fret not!  You can order online at inglotcosmetics.com  🙂 Check out the swatches below!

Victoria’s Secret Limited Edition Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette in Fearless

I picked up the limited edition Victoria’s Secret Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette in Fearless. Its soooo pretty. Its a blue based palette. It has a pretty shimmering champagne color, a shimmering greyish taupey color, a matte teal color, a shimmering blue color and a blackened navy eyeliner.

I love all of the eyeshadows. They blend like a dream and they are gorgeous, if you like shimmering eyeshadows, that is. I like a little shimmer in my life so I’m pretty happy with them. Some people might prefer a matte highlighter shade, but I’m sure you have one in your collection that would work perfectly with this palette. The matte teal shade is a little fussy, but not too bad. All mattes seem to have some blendability issues and I don’t find this one to be any more troublesome to deal with than any other mattes in my collection.

I do not like the eyeliner. It’s consistency is somewhere between a dried out gel liner and a powder. That is the best way I know of to describe it. It is a dull black color and the staying power is very poor, even with a primer.

Even though the eyeliner is a dud, I like the other shades enough to make this palette worth the purchase. You can get it in the store or online at victoriassecret.com . It retails for $20.

REVIEW: Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Highlighting Duo in Moon Opal and Iris Plume

I finally decided to try out the Tarina Tarantino eye shadows.  I picked up one of the new Eye Dream Highlighting Duos in Moon Opal and  Iris Plume.  I have to admit, I was impressed!   They are really nice, soft and smooth eye shadows.  They blend like a dream. I believe they have the ability to give fallout, but I tapped my brush off  really well before I put them on my eye and I didn’t notice any fallout.  If you don’t tap your brush off, I expect you will experience eye shadow in places you don’t want it.  If you like any of their colors then definitely give them a try.  I expect I will be purchasing more. I really liked this duo.  I want to try their blushes as well.  Let me know your thoughts on this line.  If you haven’t tried it, do you plan on giving it a go?  I’d love to hear from you!

Chanel Spring Collection 2012

I love Chanel, who doesn’t?  Anyway, I picked up some things from their Spring collection and I’m super excited to share them with you!  I got Chanel Eyeliner in Taupe #84, which is the most beautiful taupe eyeliner I’ve ever seen.  Its totally gorgeous and a must have!!!  I also picked up the Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in Eclosion #34.  Its such a pretty spring palette, although one shade is a little chalky and had some fallout.  The other four are a dream, I love them and do recommend the quad.  The last thing I picked up was Blush Horizon de Chanel # 4305.  Its so pretty in the pan.  It has stripes of peach and pink with a little white and berry mixed in.  When blended all together you get a gorgeous peachy pink.  You can go more pink or more peach if like, just from the way the colors are laid out in the pan.  Its a dream:)  All the items are shown and detailed in the video.  Enjoy!

Did you get anything from the Spring Collection?  Do tell!!!

I’m loving Sweet Marmalade Enhancing Lipcolor Lipstick, which is a beautiful coral color. I also love the coordinating Color Fever Gloss in Tangerine Petal. I have been looking for the Coral Crush eyeshadow palette for quite a while so I was thrilled when my local counter got it and didn’t sell it out before I was able to get one.
