I love makeup. Makeup is expression, art, positivity, relaxation. Whatever mood I am in, when I do my makeup it is the most relaxing time of the day.
I loved painting when I was little and even though I never became a new Monet, Renoir or Michelangelo I definitely have played with colors, paints and pigments. Am I makeup and color genius? Definitely not and not even close! I just love it and it plays a relaxing role in my life. Do I wear makeup every day? No, I believe that it is important to let our face and minds breath! Do I love when I wear makeup? YES! Well that wasn’t what this blog post was all about. Rewind….
INGLOT had some big news back in the beginning of spring. Jennifer Lopez collaboration for the launch of THE JLO collection. Let me be honest here, I looooove JLO! I mean who doesn’t?
At the same time I can be very skeptical when it comes to collaborations. Will it worth my time? I firstly visited INGLOT in ARKADEN shopping center.
I am a kind of “first I try, then I buy” kind of person.
I tried the products, I left the store, I strolled around the market and after 3 hours I looked myself in the mirror:
1. Is the product still in place?
2. How does it look like?
3. Do I like it? etc.
The range includes, lip, eye, face and nail products & shouts JLO.
Highlighters, Glosses, Contour Powders and Nudes, a LOT of NUDES!
I mean finally a not One-Size-Fits-All Nude!
I tried all of them and keep in mind that the colors that I loved was the ones that fit my face, my undertones and my esthetics.
Instead of making my own video for the range I thought to leave it up to the promo video of INGLOT, e n j o y!
I love natural looks and warm tone makeup and I found all of that and more!
The star products:
*Highlighter, Highlighter, Highlighter! Great Great Great!
*Matte lipsticks! I love matte lipsticks, especially the ones that stay in place and are not drying and these lipsticks are all the above!
*Lipgloss! I wanted to buy all of them! Maybe I will eventually! I love them by themselves, I love mixing them, I love them on the top of my matte lipstick!
*Eye Shadows! I loved the warm toned, easy to blend, high pigmentation, they are just wonderful!
* Black liquid eye liner. It is THE BEST and waterproof!
*Lip liners. Consistent and fit perfectly with the lipsticks!
The… could have been better:
*Blush and Bronzing powder. First and foremost the color range is great! However quite difficult to blent.
*Mascaras. There are so many good mascaras out there and I have so little eye lashes, it simply did not work for me.
*Nail polish. They work better in a pretty tanned skin.
END RESULT: I LOVED IT! YES I DID! An amazing range of products and I want more!
