Inglot AMC Lip Gloss/Gloss

I know there are some of you who are curious about Inglot Cosmetics 🙂

I’ve passed by it in Times Square and never bothered to go inside until a couple of months ago. I know people are more curious about certain items over others, but the one standout aside from their nail polishes (which I haven’t purchased yet, but will hopefully soon) are their AMC lipgloss. 

As you can see from the tube, it’s in your face bright and holographic like. My eyes went like O_O It’s clear, purple, blue and pink!!! My eyes couldnt handle the hotness so I grabbed it ! Worn itself it makes my lips look like a slightly bluer pink. Applied over a lipstick…oh my gee. I tried to photograph this a bazillion times on my lips, on my hands, and I cannot get a good photo for the life of me.

In this photo you can see from L to R:

and then GA 513 underneath Inglot 541. See how hard it is to photograph a holographic l/g? This picture doesn’t do this lip combo justice. You can somewhat see the pretty sheen it gives. :\ This picture is an ultimate fail. ah well, at least I tried, right? 
Texture: it’s not sticky, it’s a bit on the runny side. It doesn’t pill on my lips or leave a funky gunk on my lips after a while, which is nice.

In terms of the lasting power, it is a bit underwhelming, but the prettiness of this gloss kinda makes up for it. 🙂 
The price: I vaguely remember it costing me around $15-16. Definitely a reasonable price 🙂 



NARS Pure Matte lipsticks in Terre de Feu and Tonkin

So today I went into the city to take a peek at Saks Fifth Avenue. I hadn’t been there in a long time, so I figured that I should go.

I see a display with NARS lipsticks as soon as I enter the store

So I take a peek at the counter and saw these most GORGEOUS shades.

So the MA there showed me the colors and it was instant love. I’ve always been a NARS girl when it comes to matte red lipsticks. I purchased Terre de Feu and Tonkin. Swatches are below:

Albatross lipgloss (Sephora exclusive).

I’m NC25/30 for reference

They are VERY matte, so if you do have dry lips, wear a sheer layer of balm underneath so it’s not drying. I tried these without balm, and they are a bit dry, but I’ve worn drier lipsticks, so it’s not that bad. There is no smell with either shade, which is a definite plus. I don’t mind a smell, but I’m sure there are people out there who do. I didn’t get to swatch the other shades, but these two were my favorite out of the bunch. I want to get Vesuvio, but at a later date. 🙂

As for Albatross lipgloss, Shawn Snell who was at Sephora today at an event suggested it to me. He applied it over Terre de Feu and WOW. Talk about SERIOUS dimension. I couldn’t help but stare at how my lips looked. Definitely a must have lipgloss if you want to add dimension, or to sheer out a lip color. These lipsticks will be released in other stores on October 1st. 🙂

OH and I got a “Paper Tiger” mini cream eyeshadow as my GWP today:

From L to R: Terre de Feu, Tonkin, Albatross lipgloss.
