I have a new video up-
it's a haul from various brands including MAC, ELF, drugstore brands, and Inglot!
Inglot is a brand I've heard a lot of people buzzing about, but hadn't tried it... until now!
I really wanted to try the eyeshadows, so I went with the "Freedom System", in which you can choose a palette size (I chose the 10-pan palette), and then pick whatever colors you want to go inside.
The lid secures onto the palette with 4 super strong magnets- the whole palette seems incredibly durable! The palette came empty, and all of the shadow pans were individually packaged, allowing me to have the oh-so-satisfying experience of placing the magnetic pans of shadow exactly where I wanted them in the palette. I can't imagine running out of any of these shades anytime soon. Each pan is quite large!
When you get to the website- there are SO MANY shadows to choose from! It's a little overwhelming. While the tiny pictures give you a somewhat decent indication of the shadow you'll be getting, it's hard to be sure. To be honest, I just started randomly choosing "pretty" colors- making sure to include 3 must-haves... a pearly highlight, a matte brown, and a matte black. I didn't realize that I'd end up with a palette that formed such a nice even split of warm & cool colors. I like that I can get a nice plummy/lilac look, as well as a warm brown look.

I am so happy with these shadows! :) I think the quality is awesome- whether you're talking about the pearly shades or the matte, and the price is quite good, too! I believe there are also larger or smaller palettes that you can get- as well as other makeup products that can fit into the "Freedom System". One more thing- as an Inglot newbie, I didn't understand the way some of the finishes were labeled. I mean, I understand the meaning of pearl and matte, but what's AMC? And what about DS? No clue. And I couldn't find anywhere on the website explaining this stuff. But I did find this blog post that was able to shed some light on the various finishes... Apparently DS is "double sparkle"- a matte-based shade containing glitter. AMC stands for "Advanced Makeup Component"- a semi-matte base with sparkly, and "AMC Shine" is a super shimmery shade, with even more shine than the pearl colors. So while ordering can be a little complicated, I'm very pleased with the product! :)
- It's been a great weekend having my parents down for a visit. Mom & I put in quite a day of shopping yesterday! Dad & Tyler fit in 2 afternoons of golf.
- A pretty exciting day for St. Louis sports fans- Rams and Cardinals are playing today!
- I have 2 kinds of candy corn- green apple & caramel apple and they are awesome! Better than regular candy corn, in my opinion.
- Made apple cider sangria last night- YUM! :)
