Haul: Inglot

This haul is about 3 months late but better late then never. So if you live in Melbourne you have probably heard of Chadstone Shopping Centre. Every 3-4 months they hold this event type thing known as VIP night. It's ALWAYS on a Wednesday starting in the morning till midnight (I think). You can sign up here to receive emails letting you know when VIP night is.

So you're probably wondering why I'm telling you all this, right?? VIP night has some AMAZ-ING sales on clothes, decor, book, perfumes and cosmetics. You can get some awesome deals on makeup and one of the most exciting brands I've seen discounted is Inglot, they have about 10%-15% off their full priced items which is MUCH better then paying full price.  

I wanted to test the waters before going Inglot crazy so I only picked up 5 eyeshadows from the freedom system. For those who are unfamiliar with the freedom system it allows you to pick from a WIDE variety of colours and products you're interested in such as blushs, lip colours and the most thing they're famous for eyeshadows. They have an massive selection of not only colours but finishes.

Sorry about all the photos but I couldn't decide which looked best.

With the 15% off the single shadows came to $8.50 each and the empty palette came to $11.90. Total $54.40. Personally I thought that was a great price seeing as without the discount the 5 palette would have been $64, so a great saving.

Have you tried any Inglot products?

Review: UBU Shady Lady Eyeshadow Brush (No. 30)

Claim: "All eyes on you baby. Love your lids with this short synthetic bristle brush perfectly molded to your eye shape."

If you want a brush to apply eyeshadow all over the lid then this is NOT the brush for that. 

There are a few reasons why it's a bad all over the eye lid brush. 
1) Bristles are not flexible 
2) Bristles are too firm 
3) Bristles from the base are fairly thick but as it tapers to the top it becomes too thin therefore not enough eyeshadow can get onto the brush to actually be applied smoothly all over the lid. 

However, this brush is really good for applying eyeshadow on the lower lash line. So if your looking to set your eyeliner with eyeshadow this is a handy tool. It is the right amount of thickness and firmness to apply eyeshadow on the lash line. 

Cons:
- Doesn't do what it claims

Pros:
- Great for lower lash line
- Cheap 
- PURPLE

Rating: 2.5 

Where and how much: K-mart - $6.00

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking. 



1. Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum 
30ml $24

The serum strengthens the skin barrier in just two weeks improving its tolerance for the long term. Specially formulated to offer an immediate comforting and calming effect. Apply after cleansing and before moisturising both morning and night. Clinically proven to reveal healthier skin in just two weeks."

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
