Inglot in the UK

There is FINALLY a UK site for the cosmetic brand Inglot.

I have a few things from them which I managed to get from a blogger in Australia and it is really good quality stuff. I have been wanting to get hold of a few more of their gel liners for a while now so it is awesome to know that us Brits can now buy stuff online :)

MUA Palettes


I have been waiting to try these out since the beginning of August. I went on tour all over the UK and went into about 15 different Superdrug stores, only to find that none of them had these in stock yet.

As luck would have it, my mum and sisters managed to pick these three up for me when they saw them in Superdrug Tunbridge Wells. However, I don't see much of them at the moment because we are all so busy so it has taken until today for me to get hold of them.

I have now got Heaven & Earth, Dusk Til Dawn and Starry Night. They are all beautiful, I have been impressed with MUA eyeshadows from the very start but these colours seem to have a lot more depth than the single shadow pans. Especially some of the neutrals from the Heaven & Earth Palette! There is a bronze/gold colour in the tio right hand corner which is just beautiful when swatched!

I haven't had much of a chance to play with them yet but I wanted to get some photographs before they get used.

These palettes are extremely affordable at £4 each! Each eye shadow pan is slightly larger than a penny and with 12 eye shadows in each palette that works out at about 33p per shadow.

The extra bonus with this brand is that MUA is a Superdrug own product - and therefore you can get 25% off the price of these if you fill in one of the online questionnaires that are given to you with each superdrug receipt. That takes the price of each palette down to £3!! (or 25p per eye shadow!)

I have heard nothing but praise for these, and my initial impressions are very high. I will do some reviews and looks with these over the next few weeks :)
