INGLOT + UK Haulage

A while ago, the beautiful Emma of Birds Decorate Branches blogged about the limited edition Sleek blush in Scandalous, and I was so curious that I knew I wanted to get my hands on it.  Unfortunately, Sleek products are only available in the UK.  Emma was nice enough to grab one of these for me and a couple other items (my wish list for UK items is actually miles long but I didn't want to trouble her too much).  I asked her for Sleek's blush in Scandalous, Sleek Kajal Eyeliner in Nocturnal, and Barry M Dazzle Dust in Petrol Black.

Petrol Black, Scandalous, Nocturnal
Sorry for the craptastic swatches and pictures.  I always plan on doing full reviews on everything I haul so I will have more pictures of the products in their individual posts.  I loved the dazzle dust, the blush was surprisingly wearable after being blended out (which took a lot of effort), and the eyeliner was definitely disappointing.  Still, they're very lovely products to have.  Thanks again Emma for taking the time to pick these up and sending them my way!

Sleek blush as compared to NARS.  Although Sleek looks smaller, there is actually more product.

Petrol Black is absolutely gorgeous!


Last week, my dear friend Tony came to visit me.  He is in the airforce and is being stationed in Korea for a while.  Of course I had to see him before he left.  And then kidnap him and hide him so he can't go to Korea.  Anyways, since there are two INGLOT stores where he lives, I had him pick up a crapload of goodies for me.

I'll have the names of all the colors when I do a collective INGLOT review and swatch frenzy.  I've been meaning to do it for the longest time and I'm a horrid blogger for not doing it earlier.  It will be the first thing on my to do list after life is a bit more settled down.  But anyways, I had Tony grab 20 colors for me, but to make a long story short, they ran out of 2 of the colors I wanted and Tony grabbed some extra for me.  Boy do I love this fool.  Anyways, I also asked for the lip pencil.  It wasn't the shade of red I thought it would be, but it sure does make some interesting bright lips.  The sales associate also threw in a crapload of samples.

I guess that's all for now.  I never thought this would happen but I've lost some of my passion for makeup.  I think this can be attributed to all the drama...if only the answers of all of life's questions would grown on trees.

I hope everyone is staying well and healthy.  Take care, all!
