Some of the Best!

Believe it or not I have not really had time lately to sit down and do a full blog posting. So I am just going to do a quick "Some of the Best Products on the Market". Today we are doing eyes.

Eyeshadows: This category used to belong mainly to MAC but lately Urban Decay, Illamasqua, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and Inglot have stolen the spot. For loose pigments I am in love with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics! They have a beautiful selection of colors at great prices. The pigments have amazing payoff and blend incredibly well. I am so happy to have discovered this line.

I really love Inglot shadows. They are smooth, have great payoff and little fallout. Also, the color lasts longer when used with a primer than most shadows. And they have the best selection of colors.Inglot shadows range in price depending on if you purchase them in the pan or if you use the Freedom System. I personally recommend the Freedom System, which is a fancy way of saying buying a palette and filling it with shadows. As for Illamasqua, currently it is only sold in the United States at Sephora. Certain stores carry it and it is available online.

Eyeliner: Urban Decay owns this category. They have the most wonderful liquid liner ever. Their 24/7 liquid liner goes on so easily and it looks amazing, one precise line. The pencil category also belongs to UD, with their 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. I have never used a pencil that glides on so well. I get a perfect line in one step. Thank you Urban Decay!!!!! Both of these are $18.00

Mascara: This category changes depending on the newest mascara on the market. Honestly, I love MAC mascaras and Maybelline mascaras. Yes, I said Maybelline. Lately their products have become the top of the line in the drug store. Their Falsies Mascara is quite nice. But I really like MAC's False Lashes ($19.00), Studio Fix Boldblack Lash ($15.00)

You can find these products at www.sephora.com, www.urbandecay.com, www.maccosmetics.com, www.illamasqua.com, www. ulta.com, www.inglotusa.com, www.occmakeup.com and www.beauty.com.

There you go. These are what I consider to be some of the best on the market right now.


  1. I'll have to check out Inglot when I am at Sephora. It is getting harder to keep up with new products on the market. We have a fairly good sized Sephora but it doesn't have enough space to carry everything.

  2. Right now Inglot is only available at their stores or at their website, www.inglotusa.com. I have done all of my ordering online and have been pretty happy with what I have received but the swatches on the website are NOT exactly how the items appear in real life. They are pretty good though. The quality is EXCELLENT and I am so happy I found this company.

  3. You're making me be dying to try Ilmasqua!

  4. I haven't seen any Inglot at my local Sephora. I'll keep my eyes open for them.

  5. I so wish Inglot had a brick & mortar store in the SF Bay Area. I'm still too chicken to order from their site after studying all the online swatches of the various colors people have bought.

    BTW, will you do a separate post on the Inglot colors you got? I'd love to read it.

  6. Yes, I will do a post on the Inglot shadows. They do deserve a spot of their own! :) I can understand being somewhat hesitant. Let me see if we can correct that.
