(Vicky Christina) BARCELONA AND THE INGLOT PIGMENTS

I am back from Barcelona! Sorry I was MIA but it was for a good reason!

Yes.. I did some makeup shopping!! (In between the cultural visits of course!!!) I found a Sephora on my way to Plaça Catalunya  and let me tell you they’re very smart, they have a “male zone” where they can seat and wait for us crazy makeup junkies. 😂 Very efficient. You could see all the accompanying males together waiting… My BF even said “are you done?  We can stay a bit longer if you want” WHAAAT? Guess that was the free Wifi zone effect too. Anyways…

We also walked (we walked everywhere actually)  by Port Vell and I found a shop (a beauty related shop of course). There was an inglot counter in this shop and my curiosity was immediately aroused!  Because YES I have heard of it but NO I have never got the opportunity to try  this brand as it’s not available in France (don’t try to understand, I can’t understand myself).  I was tempted to get a few things but what really aroused my junkiness was the pigments. I LOVE PIGMENTS! They’re so versatile you can use them as a wash of color, a liner, a touch of light to end your makeup look.. well pretty much everything!

So when my love for pigments met my love for duochromes AND turquoise then.. WOOOP WOOP WOOP I stopped thinking and got both (BTW, I already regret not getting more…)

What the brand say :

Highly concentrated loose coloured powder that ranges from subtle to ultra-intense effects depending on application. The product contains sponge gourd oil and almost 90% pure pigment.

These beauties are 2 g/0.07 US OZ  and cost 17€.

I picked #86 which is a stunning luminous Copperish/Rosegold duochrome shade. Can’t describe how beautiful it is!! It was the one I liked the most when I swatched it. Super pigmented and the duochrome effect was very pretty!

Inglot pigment #86 and mac pigment in rose swatches. One swipe, natural lighting.  

Here is a  little comparison of Inglot #86 and mac pigment in Rose. Inglot pigment seems to be more thick and opaque with a more intense metallic finish.

I picked #114 which is a beautiful turquoise with a subtle silver sheen. I love turquoise for summer and this one was so bright and beautiful I couldn’t resist.

As you can see the metallic finish is emphazised when the brush is dampened with some fix+.

Look how bright and pigmented they are!!

Now for the technical aspects of the thing : I applied mines with a flat brush previously dampened  with some fix+ (MY PIGMENTS BFF). I applied a primer on my lids as well (UD primer potion). And it lasted incredibly well. 9 hours without creasing, AT ALL. I might try again with a proper pigment solution but to be honest I am very impressed by these first results.

YOU WANNA SEE??

HERE YOU GO!
