Inglot Eyeliner, Eye Shadow, Lip Gloss & Lipstick Review! [REVIEW & SWATCHES]


The green light shimmer eye shadow… love this color, it has that apple shade.

The pink light shimmer eye shadow… once you put it on its slightly darker than pot itself.

And the brown… while it looks quite light here its actually very dark and almost black. If I had to compare it, I’d say it’s almost similar to MAC’s eyeshadow in “Brun”.

PROS: Highly pigmented, cheap and lasts!
CONS: None that I can think of.

Eyeshadow Code: 1st - D.S.477 (green), 2nd - AMC Shine 48 (pink) & 3rd - Matte 329 (brown)
Retails: RM 28 each


It’s a pale, pale pink and its most suitable for when you’re using dark eyeshadows. It has a nude effect without being beige.

It’s moisturising so it doesn’t dry out your lips (seriously important to me) and it lasts quite long. So it’s not imperative that you wear a lip balm before applying the lipstick.

PROS: creamy, hydrating, doesn't chap my lips and beautifully nude.
CONS: May be a bit costly and has a slight sweet smell brand new.

Lipstick Code: 121
Retails: RM 50

This lipgloss is the gooey type. It gives a slight pumping effect to your lips. As you can see I got the shimmer type. But I have to say it’s not too bad, I can use this gloss for the day. It doesn’t give you the look as if you’re wearing sparkles on your lips. Also this colour is deceiving.

For your information: I can’t really wear orange. Most of the time if I wear orange I look slightly off… but oh but how I love the colour and I’m green with envy every time I see someone with fair complexion wearing the colour and looking so lovely in it.

See... people who look beautiful in orange lipstick/gloss

But I have to look no more… while this is isn’t in your face orange… it is still a shade of orange.


On me!

PROS: Highly pigmented, lasting power and doesn't chap my lips!
CONS: Don't really like the application tip but its manageable.

Lipgloss Code: 45
Retails: RM 44


I am so in love with this pencil! It’s so cheap & pigmented! I’ve been hunting for such a long time but I could not find a good White eye pencil. Most pencils has a very light white line when you draw it on your hand and if you use it on your eye you almost can’t see the effect. In which case what is the point of even wearing one? This on the other hand, when I draw it on my water line its visible, even after a few hours with very little to no smudging.

So love it!

PROS: Highly pigmented & super white, extremely cheap for quality and has great lasting power.
CONS: Nothing

Eyeliner Code: 31
Retails: RM 38

Lash Works [TIPS]

Eyelash curler trick for a natural-looking curve!
Curl lashes at the roots, then pump the curler very lightly as you walk it toward the tips.

For super curls, heat your curler with a blow-dryer for a few seconds before curling. It’s almost like a heated curler!

If you have poker-straight lashes, try a waterproof mascara, which locks the curl into your lashes better than a regular formula.

Make your lashes pop by applying a coat of lengthening mascara, followed by one coat of thickening mascara.

Make your eyes seem wider, apply to your bottom lashes too. It's easier to do your bottom lashes before your top, rather than vice versa. However I prefer to do my top lashes first then the bottom.

For fuller and thicker lashes Wiggle the mascara wand in a zig-zag direction from the roots of your lashes to the tips. This separates your lashes and makes them appear fuller and thicker. It also coats your lashes more thoroughly.

Erase any smudges easily with a cotton bud dipped in a mild eye makeup remover. (Its best if you don’t use an natural olive oil blend because it leaves an oily residue.)

Place a card or if you have none on hand your finger between your eye lash and your skin to shield you eyelids from smudges or mistake.

Making a mascara mistake! quickly and gently remove the mistake with a cotton bud while the product is still wet. Do not wait until later because any product left on your skin would dry. Dried products are harder to remove!

When applying mascara look down at a 45 degree angle for an easier application and your hard slightly tilted.

Facing reality… [TIPS]

The first thing anyone (and I mean anyone) need to do in order to choose the right product or makeup is to face reality.

If you have big crater sized pores face it,

If you have blackheads on your face, face it,

If you have dark circles face it,

If you have wrinkles even at such a young age face it,

If you have dry skin face it,

If you have small eyes face it,

If you are excessively hairy face it,

Wishing it would go away would not help!

Complaining about it won’t help!

So who can help you?

You! The only who can help you if you yourself and the first step to helping yourself is acknowledging that you have these problems.

Next, if possible find the source of your problem.

Lastly, identify your budget and will power to find the right solution to your problem. Experiment and be brave to try out new things. I have to be honest sometimes experimenting can go wrong and sometimes it goes so well you find the product that is best suited for you.

The advice that I and others give will only help you if you take an active step in rectifying your problem and it’s important to remember that it only serves as guidance. Everyone is different (I mean that quite literally) I’m not all knowing and all seeing. I write and state what I myself have gone through, learned and observed.

That being said I hope you subscribe and be my follower for this blog. It would mean so much to me and it’s my daily motivation to put up new posts. To know that what I’ve said actually helped somebody.

L'oreal Ultra-Volume Collagene [REVIEW]

If you are a female you want great eye lashes. Why you say? Because! It makes your eyes look bigger, sexier and well... frankly more attractive. I know I want great lashes. Don't you? And if we are one of those that are unfortunate enough to be born with either short and thin lashes well what can we do than to nothing more than to rely on a good mascara.

However the problem comes when we need to find that elusive mascara that will give us the perfect eye lashes that are shown in commercials (mind you no amount of mascara will increase the number of lashes). I say look no more. For the L'oreal Collagen Extreme" is the solution and answer to your prayers. Well at least for persons who have long but thin lashes.

I have been looking for quite some time for a mascara that is cheap and performs. This baby makes my eyelashes look like a baby doll and boy do I love it. I had this conversation with some friends and they mentioned that my eyelashes (L'oreal ) was capable of causing a sand storm. and after thinking about it I agreed! but then I had a a more high end mascara that is capable of causing a hurricane.... I have yet to find one that is capable of causing a tornado!

And... there you have it, Hence forth when I describe a mascara as being capable of a sand storm you should know what I mean. XD

Back to the mascara, I would say that this mascara has a decent sized brush though a bit on the larger side. It is decent to use on the lower lashes. Though it may cause some smudges if you are not used to it, it's also waterproof. You might need a decent makeup remover to get the mascara off. Meaning Johnson Baby Oil might not do the trick, however there are some brands that I have tried that works, they are,

1. L'oreal Eye Makeup Remover
2. Eture Eye and Lip Makeup Remover
3. Revlon Makeup Remover
4. And all the High End brand's makeup remover.

However I have found that 100ml olive oil infused with 3 drops of lavender essential oil does the trick quite well.

It also has a problem of clumping. However I have found that this is one of those mascaras that would function like new once the brush is washed every 20 applications or so. You can wash the brush with a few drop of makeup remover mixed in with soap.
I also find that after one month of using this mascara that it had yet to develop the spidery effect.

Looking at the overall performance of this mascara i would give it a 7/10.

Its great & its cheap what more could you want?

Pros: Cheap, great volumising effect, works on one coat but looks fantastic with several more coats of mascara, works like new when brush is cleaned.

Cons: clumps up after 15 uses, does not lengthen, the brush clumps up, a little bit difficult to apply on the lower lashes.
