Yay....my goodies arrived today!

I'm pretty sure that everyone who follows me also follows The Beautiful Life of the Girl Next Door (Sonja-Starryskies...if you aren't already following her, you definitely should!!) so then you know that I won her giveaway for her one month blogging anniversary.  :)  Soooo....today my package came!!!  I was so excited!  She even sent a little card with the package...it was very sweet!  Thanks again, Sonja!!!!  Here's what came to me :)
I love the packaging....and the colors are just gorgeous!!  I couldn't wait to get them out of their little packages and swatch them haha.  I didn't use a base....I just went right to swatching!

From left to right they are 395 pearl, 352 matte, 74 AMC, 70 AMC, and 384 matte.  I'm sorry that I didn't get great pictures...and these were taken with a flash.  I obviously am in need of a new camera these days!!  ;)  They are so silky smooth and just gorgeous!!  I couldn't wait to play in these haha.  I decided to do the magenta color, since I have been doing alot of blue and green lately.  This color is super pretty!  It's matte but it has sparkles...and not glittery sparkles that fall all over you like UD midnight cowboy haha.  Here's how it turned out (sorry for the bad lighting too)

I love these eyeshadows!!  They are so smooth and blend so easily!!  I've never used a matte shadow like these....they are so easy to work with....sometimes mattes can be a pain to blend and aren't as pigmented as I would like.  Not these!!  I can't wait to get more....I definitely will be placing an order with Inglot asap haha.

For this look I used:
UD Sin jumbo eye pencil as base-I will use something else next time
Inglot 74 AMC-lid
#352 for blending and browbone
MAC Blacktied-crease
MAC Carbon-inner crease, outer v
MAC Electra
#395 browbone and highlight...I love this...I used this as a blush highlight too!!
MAC Margin blush
MAC Angel l/s

I really wish I could've gotten better pictures...it really did look good.  I went to a baby shower this evening and got several comments on how good my eyeshadow looked.  :)  I love, love, love these and can't wait to use them tomorrow!!  =D  I hope everyone had a great day!


  1. It looks beautiful!! I LOVE that colour on you and it looks gorgeous the way you did it!!! Ruh-roh I might not have 74 AMC lol!!

  2. Oh yay! I'm so glad that you got to wear them (even better when you get compliments!!)! I really like the color placement! Haha @ Amalia! I don't have that one either! That's the one that I ordered to give away and didn't order for myself haha.

  3. @Amalia: Thank you!! And haha, you need to get it so you have them allll =D
    @Starryskies: Thanks so much!!! I'm going to try out more today...woohoo. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to order a 20 palette today bahahaha.

  4. I love my inglot shadows. I am sad that I only bought neutral colors when I went to IMATS NY. I am going to have to order some soon. I need some fun colors like you got. Great blog by the way.
