Simple MOTD

Hey lovelies !!I just wanted to share my quick and simple MOTD. Sometimes there are days when I do not want to wear any makeup, and other days I want to wear minimal makeup. Today, I felt like I didn't want to do a full face,so I decided to just put on lipstick,mascara and eyeliner. Using these few makeup products brightened up my face without over doing it. I loved it. As they say, less is more. :)

Products used:

L'oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner
L'oreal Voluminous Million lashes
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Raspberry Rush. You can check out  my review of the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks Here.

 Hope everyone is enjoying their day :) 

See you in my next blog post lovelies,

My Inglot Freedom System Eye Shadow Palette Review

Hello lovelies!! Muahhz I have missed you all!!! Since I have the free time , I thought I would do a review on the Inglot Freedom System Palette. I have been eyeing Inglot eyeshadows for quite sometime now and thought I would finally purchase some since they were on sale during Black Friday of 2013. Crazy how it is already 2014! Anywho let's jump right into the review.

Inglot individual eyeshadows cost 6.00 each (3.2g) and come in variety of colors such as matte,glitter,and pearl finishes. The Freedom System 10 Eyeshadow Palette costs $16.00.

Very affordable
Blends very well
Not Powdery

The lid of the palette is a bit tricky to open.
Hard to take out the eyeshadows.

I couldn't pass up selecting vibrants colors. They are beautiful!  I will be putting these to use in the summertime. I am a sucker for colorful eyeshadows. :)

These eyeshadows were swatched  without using a base. Look at how pigmented these eyeshadows are! My favorite colors out of the ones that I picked are 74,370 and 383.

351- is a Vanilla color great as a highlighter or for the inner corners of the tear duct. I was surprised that this was not powdery since most white eyeshadows that I came across have a powdery finish.
357- A a taupey brown color that is a great transition color for colorful eyeshadows. I picked this color just for that purpose. Also it is a nice shade of brown.
370-My favorite color is yellow and when I seen this I just had to have it. Such a beautiful canary color.
316- Is a minty color. I love minty eyeshadow shades.
331-Is a true green color. This is a color I do not own, at least I don't think 
 do. I thought it was a beautiful green shade to own.
74- is a raspberry shade with micro glitter in it.
39- is a pearly light purple color.
320 is a grape color. I love purple eyeshadows.
315- Is another unique color that I came across and I don't think I have one like it.
483- is a navy blue with blue micro glitter. This color is gorgeous! The glitter in the shadow actually stays on once you apply  it ,which isn't the case with most eyeshadows that contain glitter  I love this shade.

Over All I am in love with Inglot eyeshadows. The Inglot eyeshadows are great quality and have excellent pigmentation. They also blend very well. These eyeshadows are very affordable which I love. The price and the quality of these shadows are a great deal. Inglot did an excellent job with the formula of these eyeshadows. Most of the eyeshadows that I purchased are matte and they are soft and not powdery. The eyeshadows that have glitter in them stay on your eyelid when you apply and I experienced no fall out.  As for the palette palette itself, I like that it is very thin, but the lid is a bit tricky to open and if you want to take an eyeshadow out you have to use a pin. Taking out the eyeshadow is a bit challenging.Other than that no other complaints.I highly recommend Inglot's eyeshadows if you are looking for high end, good quality makeup with excellent pigmentation that is affordable. You won't be disappointed. I am really happy with their eyeshadows and looking forward to growing my collection.

Hope you enjoyed this review. See you in my next blog post.
