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).
