Eyeshadow Palette Wishlist

I don’t know about you guys but I swear that every time I’m trying to save for a something – such as my holiday which is now 4 weeks away – there’s concert tickets going onsale, Missguided and Boohoo have a sale, you get discount codes sent to you and the worst one of them all, your favorite makeup brand releases a new product. How is anyone supposed to save any money at all with all of this temptation aroundย ๐Ÿ˜–.

In light of this I thought I’d put together a little wishlist of the eyeshadow palettes that I seriously am drooling over๐Ÿ˜.ย I thought that this might satisfy my needs at this moment in time and possibly prevent me from making any irresponsible purchases๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Inglot Cosmetics Signature Collection Eyeshadow Palettes – If you are an Inglot fan you’ll already know how amazing their eyeshadows are. They’re super pigmented and so easy to blend what’s not to love about them? Not to mention that you can literally get any colour you want with the range that they have. They recently released their new Signature Collection and OH MY DAYS are they fab. The Berry and Candy palettes are my favorite. I love the cranberry tones in the Berry and pinky colours in the Candy palette. I think both palettes are perfect to create a day or night look, I really cannot wait to pick them up and give them a try๐Ÿ˜. They retail @ โ‚ฌ32 each and are available onlineย here.

Makeup Revolutionย Ultra 32 Eyeshadow Palette Flawless 3 Resurrection – As you already know from my previous posts, I am a massive fan of the brand Makeup Revolution. I have so many of their eyeshadow (and blush) palettes already that I use all the time, they’re just so affordable and so pigmented it’s hard not to have so many๐Ÿ˜…. This palette caught my eye on my Insta feed and it’s definitely next on my list to try. The palette is all matte with warm tones that are just so stunning, the orangey tones I love in particular๐Ÿค—.ย This palette retails at โ‚ฌ11.50 and you can get this palette in Superdrug or onlineย here๐Ÿ‘ˆ.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette – Urban Decay have completely outdone themselves with this palette, I still can’t get over how pretty it is๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญย I already have the Naked, Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes, along with the Smoked, Gwen Steffani and the Vice palettes which are all just amazing. ย Again I absolutely love the look of the warm burnty shades in this palette and can only imagine how gorgeous they are when swatched๐Ÿ˜ฎย This palette isn’t available in Ireland just yet but is due to be released in Ireland in the end of July, and when that day comes I plan to be top of the queue๐Ÿ˜ย The other Naked palettes were around the โ‚ฌ50 mark so I’m guessing this one will be around the same.

Too Faced Cosmetics White Chocolate Palette – So Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Too Faced Cosmetics, Jerrod Blandino, dropped an absolute Chocolatey BOMB on Instagram today. He posted a sneaky peak of the new limited edition White Chocolate Palette and .. I am shook hunnyย ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ. I can’t even deal with the colours in it, there are some gorgeous shimmery shades along with some pinky peachy shades.. it all just looks amazing๐Ÿ˜. I already have their Chocolate and Semi Sweet Chocolate palette, which I adore, they are so buttery AND they even smell like chocolate! What more could you want๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ. Jerrod hashtagged black Friday and cyber Monday in his post so the guess is that this beauty will be released at the end of November/Christmas Time.

Slay-liners ๐Ÿ”ช

For years I have tried so many different eyeliners to create that sharp flick that I love so much. But my skin is unfortunately really oily which means I have lovely oily eyelids to match, so finding the right eyeliner was a bit of a task. I tried some waterproof ones that peeled off after a couple of hours and I tried other matte ones (liquid and gel) that just melted off my face. Or better yet, I tried ones that transferred to the top of my eyelid (like, under my eyebrow) and made me look like I had four eyebrows!

I did find the Seventeen “Tattoo Me” Semi Permanent Liquid Eyeliner had amazing staying power but the product itself went really gloopy after a while. I also found the Bourjois “Liner Pinceau” Liquid Eyeliner stayed put all day and the eyeliner didn’t crack or melt or anything.

HOWEVER I have recently found two of the most amazing eyeliners that are so easy to use, stay all day and don’t hurt your purse ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿพ and I just HAD to post about them.

Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel

I heard and saw so many people using and raving about the Inglot AMC liner and I, being the make up junkie that I am, had to give it a try. So, I went and bought it and got the Duraline as well (which is also an amazing product, itamc-eyeliner-updated basically helps to loosen up the product and makes it so much easier to apply). Guys, this eyeliner is seriously AH-Mazing, I was in love after using it for the first time. It’s so easy to use when creating your perfect flick AND you can also apply it to your water line (granted it does take practice to perfect the winged eyeliner). I use an angled eyeliner brush (from Zoeva) to apply and it stays put all day/night with no melting or cracking – Nada! If you haven’t tried it yet you are seriously missing out๐Ÿ™Š. It’s available in Inglot stores and online hereย http://inglot.ie/eyes/eyeliner/amc-eyeliner-gel.htmlย and for just โ‚ฌ15 can you really go wrong?

 

Kat Von D “Tattoo Liner”

Ever since watching LA Ink I fell in love with the ever fabulous Kat Von D and when she launched her own make up range back in 2008 with Sephora I just could not wait to get my hands on her products (it may have been 6 years until I finally tried it, but who’s counting?).

I traveled to New York March this year and naturally made a kat-von-d-updatedbeeline for Sephora when I reached the city and the first thing I put in my basket was the Tattoo Liner. I couldn’t wait until I got home to Ireland to try it so I tried it that night and OH MY LORD. The tip of the pen is like a brush and so makes applying the liner almost like using a marker. Really easy to apply and not to mention quick! I didn’t know myself after it only took me like 30 seconds to draw a flick onto one eye๐Ÿ˜ฑ. Guys, this eyeliner does.. not.. move! Much like Inglot’s liner it’s staying power is seriously incredible. Kat Von D’s make up is now available in Debenhams, instore and online here:ย http://www.debenhams.ie/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10052_10001_123016001499_-1

So readers, if you are looking for an eyeliner that is easy to apply and does not smudge or melt or crack or do any of the crappy things we don’t like, you have to try these two๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿพ!

 

Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ’•
