Inglot - Finding 'beauty' in Curacao`



So i just returned from a wonderful vacation in gorgeous Curacao!  One afternoon, we decided to take a ride to downtown Willemstad - a picturesque little waterfront town decked out in rows of pretty little pastel colored buildings.  This feast for the eyes is also the mecca for shopping in Curacao where you'll fine high end brands as well as souvenir shops to please any one's shopping itch!  I was so excited to run into the Inglot store!  I first heard about Inglot from my sister who told me that their style concept is similar to that of MAC's but less expensive.  I'd never made it out to the store in Jersey so i was anxious to feast my eyes on all the make-up goodness that i was about to encounter! 

The store was tiny, yet filled with every color of the rainbow!  I first glanced at the nail polish selection where i picked up two colors.  One was a teal (988) and the other a deep shimmery burgundy (342).   I then made my way over to the lip glosses.  There were hundreds to choose from.  Personally, i need lip gloss like i need a fork in my eye BUT my theory is, can one ever have enough?  That's debatable... i for one think not!  So i snatched up a 'Lip paint' pot in a pretty corally pink color (61) and imagined how pretty it would look paired with a dab of shimmery gold eyeshadow and plenty of mascara!  Lastly, the eye shadows... oh the eye shadows... all dreamy pretty colors!  This one in particular caught my eye (44) which reminded me so much of MAC's 'sumptious olive' (one of my favorite shadows)!  Since i was running low, i decided to pick that up as well.  Overall, i loved the store and their price point was relatively good considering i picked all of this up for about $50.  Now the only bummer is the number system versus color names.  I personally love, LOVE reading the super creative names of colors whether it be nail polish or blush!  I find that it adds personality to the product.  A number is so blah!  So my one word of advice for Inglot is to convert, convert, convert!  Gosh I'd love the job of creating names for make-up colors!  Can you just imagine???  Now if only there was a nail polish in "Carla"... i mean hello??  Now that would be a fabulous color, no?  Hmmm i better work on that!  For now, I'll leave you with these pictures filled with make-up eye candy!  Enjoy!




 
 
Here are swatches of all the goodies i purchased along with a few pictures from this amazing vacation!
