Today I wanted to blog about these glitter pots from Inglot. I’ve been searching for good glitter pigments to use on my eyes for quite a while, I’ve seen so many beautiful pictures of smoky eyes finished off with an intense glitter that you just can’t get with even the sparkliest shadows (believe me, I’ve tried!)
Unfortunately they all seemed to be online or U.S. brands that I wouldn’t be able to test before purchasing, which is always a must for me! My first thought was Barry M as I’d used their dazzle dust in the past and it was a lovely finish. Much to my disappointment it didn’t seem to be in stock anywhere, according to the Boots website it wasn’t available anywhere in Ireland. So I moved my search on to other brands and tracked some glitter to both Mac and Inglot. I couldn’t tell much from the online pictures so I headed in to the stores to test it out. I found the Inglot to be far better than the Mac from a few quick tests on my wrist. The pigment was stronger and gave the glitter finish I desired.
So I picked up the above three colours on my first run, (top to bottom) Pure Pigment StarDust Collection in 119, Body Sparkles in 73 and 49. The body sparkles are smaller pots of more intense glitter, I bought these for €15 each. The Pure Pigment is a larger pot with a whole range of colours that are buildable to create really intense finishes, these retail at €16 each. I was super impressed with how they looked on the skin, I couldn’t wait to test it out!
The above was my first attempt using the Pure Pigment in 119. I was so impressed with how intense the finish was with only a few dabs. I used a sponge brush and even though it didn’t look like much, the amount of pigment it picked up was incredible! I kept this look as simple as I could because I was only heading to the cinema! I was so happy with how it turned out. Can’t wait for the excuse to go crazy for a night out!
My next test was using the body sparkles in 49 (the silver glitter) and again it was just a subtle daytime look so I kept it toned down. The pigment was so strong with these I only needed the slightest dab into the pot to cover the entire lid. Pictures don’t do these glitters much justice but I posted some videos over on my IG account (lilmalteaser) that shows just how shimmery these pigments are.
So, because I was so pleased with the results and the fact that these glitters were exactly what I had been looking for I decided to buy some more! I’m also looking for Duraline, the cult product at the moment that all beauty bloggers swear by, unfortunately it seems to sell out every single week before I make it to a store!! So I picked up two more Pure Pigment Stardust Collections in 112 and 117. Both as beautiful as 119 but far more colourful as you can see below!
112 is probably my favourite, it’s just the most gorgeous and unique lilac shade ever! With that being said, it inevitably means that I probably won’t get to use this one as often as the rest but let’s just say I’ll be finding more excuses to wear purple shadow now! 117 looks slightly green in the above picture but in reality it has more of a translucent bluish tone, it seems to reflect really well against the colours around it. In the store it reflected blue beside the silver glitter I had tested yet at home it shimmered green beside the lilac. Definitely looking forward trying this one out!
If you’re looking for a glitter pigment to use on your eyes I would definitely recommend these. They’re fine pigments so they don’t irritate your eyes/skin and they wipe away easily at the end of the night using my Simple face wipes. Such great quality and because they’re so intense and not much product is needed they’ll last a long time!
