Two raves: Inglot Aquastic Cream eyeshadows and Beautylish customer service

Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadows 17, 15, 14, 18

I’ve mentioned Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadow so many times that you are either sick of them or curious about them. I hope it’s curious since I’m loving these and can’t get enough.

Let me start with a little story. I was shopping on Beautylish and wasn’t at free shipping yet. I hate paying for shipping to be honest but I don’t mind buying a little more to get to it. I noticed the Inglot Cream shadows and decided to buy one, #15 to be exact. I put in my new address, paid, and checked my email for my confirmation. It came – with my old address!! I instantly contacted Customer Service but since it was a weekend evening I had to wait for them to get back to me. In the meantime I got a notice that my package had quickly shipped – to my old address. When CS emailed me early Monday morning they were as nice as could be and tried to redirect my package. They were too late – but the CS went out of her way and called Fed Ex who was able to redirect. For that I’ll be ever grateful since other brands/companies were not that gracious.

Now back to these fabulous metallic cream shadows. After using #15 a few times I craved more so back to Beautylish I went and somehow three more ended in my cart. The only negative about this whole story is that no one has good swatches nor any descriptions of the shadows so it was blind guessing. Now though you’ll have descriptions of 4 at least.

All of these Inglot Cream Eyeshadows have a metallic finish – more metallic than any eyeshadows I’ve found. Since metallics are one of the trends of the year this make them even more fun – but I think I’d like them no matter what. I don’t need an eyeshadow primer with these because they act as the primer. I wear them alone or with powder eyeshadows and they last the entire day without one drop of fading or smudging. I like to blend these on my eye with a fluffy eyeshadow brush after applying some directly from the wand.

Inglot Aquatic Cream Shadow #15

Inglot Aquastic Cream Eye Shadow #15 is a gorgeous gold shade. It blends down beautifully on my lids to a soft gold that’s not brassy. There is no shimmer at all in #15 or any of these but there is shine galore.

Inglot Aquastic #18 and #14 are next. In the tube these look similar enough that I wondered if I’d made a mistake. But on the eye they are beautifully different and work amazingly well with my typical wardrobe of eyeshadows.

Inglot Aquastic #18

#18 is the lightest of the shades I have and looks like a silvery taupe on my eyes. It can add a lot of life to shadows in the gray family especially. #14 is a brown taupe that is close to perfection. 14 is the one that will end up getting used up first since it has a touch of gold, some taupe, some brown, and lots of shiny beautifulness.

The last one I bought is #17 which is the one I’m not sure about. I think I’m so used to neutrals that I’m not as comfortable in colors. #17 is a bright lavender with pink tones but I was expecting it to be more pink. I haven’t used this one enough to rate it but I do have shades it should work well with.

I still want more even though I know I don’t need them but just look at #12 with its gorgeous peach.

I just figure that my next order from Beautylish will end up with one more – you know to get to free shipping (wink wink).

A reason to be thrilled – Models Own has come to Ulta

Models Own

Models Own

I am not a dancer but I was doing a jig when I received four Models Own products. I hadn’t even realized that the brand was going to be readily available at Ulta. The thrill continued when I made a trip to Ulta and saw the beautiful line there for me to purchase as well.

Models Own is a UK line that had me drooling over their nail polishes years ago. Trying to get my hands on one was a real effort but I was finally able to swap with someone to send it my way and I wasn’t disappointed. Now though we can get our hands on all their amazing products – all 650 eye, face, and lip products can be ours. Their goal is to put fun and creativity back into cosmetics. As they say BRAVERY IN BEAUTY.

Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder

Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder

The very first product I needed to use was Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder in Golden Sand. I can’t resist highlighters and I prayed that this wouldn’t be shimmery. I danced for sure once I applied this beautiful light gold powder for no sparkles were to be found. Just pure beautiful color that glowed and glowed. I can wear this day or night because it’s subtle enough that I’m not a disco ball nor do I look greasy.

Regularly priced at $11.99 it’s on sale now for $8.99 and you can use a $3.50 coupon on Models Own!! This also comes in Peach Pearl which looks stunning.

Models Own Matte Liquid Lipstick in Coral Fresh

Models Own Matte Liquid Lipstick in Coral Fresh

Models Own LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick comes in 6 brave and bright shades. The pigmentation on Coral Fresh is absolutely amazing. Your lips are covered with this gorgeous shade in one coat. It practically applies itself. It’s not a lipstick that I can apply without a mirror since the color has intensity and will stain. I wore it this week and had Chinese food and it didn’t stand up to the soup but it left a pretty stain behind. As all mattes go this is drying so make sure your lips are exfoliated and balmed for lasting beauty.

Besides Coral Fresh you need to look into Raspberry Mojito, Berry Cool, Candy Cane, Strawberry Mojito, and Eucalyptus Pink. Each of these have a light minty taste but no stinging is involved. On sale now for $5.99 you absolutely won’t believe that they aren’t a higher end luxury lip product.

I not only danced when I used Models Own I-Definer Eyeliner Duo in Midnight but I did a somersault which for someone in my shape is actually impossible! But this has everything I could possibly want in an eyeliner. The two sided liner has a smooth as can be roll up pencil on one end and a perfect felt liquid liner on the other. I’m a fool for liquid liner but I’m very picky about the tip of them. Models Own did it right. The tip is firm and glides on.

A palette that I think was made especially for me. If you like cream eyeshadow then you are going to love this!! With 10 gorgeous shades I can play to my hearts content. I could almost be on Dancing With The Stars since I got so excited to use this.

Platinum is a bright white with sparkles, the color isn’t intense. A good way to use this is to pat it over other shadows with your fingertip.

Electrum is a khaki shade that can be applied lightly or can be build up to a truer khaki.

Rose Gold is a stunning rose gold, not orange like my picture.

Emerald is the color of the turquoise sea.

Superior is a beautiful cool toned blue.

Pure Gold is exactly that, a bright yellow gold.

Nickel is my favorite, it’s more of a bronze than a copper. It looks beautiful paired with Pure Gold.

Iron Oxide is a light silver with sparkles.

Pewter is a charcoal shade with a navy undertone that I love.

Slicked is a sparkly light gray. It’s similar to Platinum in the amount of sparkle in it.

My personal favorites are Rose Gold, Superior, Pure Gold, Nickel, and Pewter. Platinum and Slicked are too sheer and sparkly for me personally.

Since this is a cream palette it may or may not crease on you. I always use an eyeshadow primer which prevents it from creasing on me. Using a light sheer powder shade over the cream can also help with creasing. While cream shadows can be a little harder to blend, they are so easy for me to use so I love them.
