Pearlized Turquoise

I decided to swatch a few of the purple colours I have to compare them to my benchmark purple, Make Up For Ever #92. As you can see, there is still no dupe out there. I also happened to find a dupe for MAC's Limited Edition Shock-a-holic eyeshadow, which is the purple from the NYC's Island Sunset Palette.

MUFE #92, Sugarpill Poison Plum, MAC Shock-a-holic, MAC Violet Trance, Inglot D.S. 494, Inglot D.S. 482, NYC Island Sunset, Inglot Matrix 191.

This look is the one that I wore for my Big News video where I announced my Vlog channel and my shaved hair.

All About Inglot

Inglot has become quite the YouTube sensation so I decided to post some swatches of the Inglot products that I have collected over the years. Unfortunately, some of my items have been either discontinued or renumbered. It is a brand that I have loved over the years and I was quite heartbroken when they closed most of their stores around Canada. I figure it was because they grew way too fast and couldn't compete with a well known brand called MAC. However, it seems as though they have smartly been cautious the past few years and are making an impact in the makeup community in the US, which I am quite happy about because they really have some great products. There are several finishes: Matte, Pearl, AMC (Advanced Makeup Components) and D.S. (Double Sparkle). AMC and D.S. look exactly the same to me, but apparently AMC is supposed to last longer...but with a primer I don't really think it matters.

From Left to right, top to bottom: Matte 379, Pearl 439, D.S. 494, AMC Shine 39, AMC 859S6, D.S. 482, Pearl 434, Pearl 413, D.S. 477, AMC 58.

Here is another post about my tattoos. I made a post a while back, but now I have a few more to add to the list. :)

My first tattoo was a stylized Haida eagle on my lower back. I got this because of my First Nation's heritage and to celebrate getting my driver's license and my first job as an accountant in 2006. It was done my Anastasia Powell in Edmonton, AB.

My second tattoo was the one on my left shoulder. I got this tattoo after my cat, Mr. Salt, died of diabetes on New Years Day in 2007. This tattoo was by Anastasia Powell in Edmonton, AB.

My third tattoo was on my chest. I had a dream shortly after moving to Vancouver that I had a tattoo on my chest of heart shaped cherries with stars shooting out from them. So the next day I was impulsive and I booked a consultation with an artist.

The fourth tattoo I got was my 3/4 sleeve. I went through a very tough time in my life and I wanted a tattoo to celebrate that I was overcoming the rough period. I wanted a Japanese tattoo with flowers and wind bars. This tattoo was done by Shoko Sonoda in Vancouver, BC in 2010.

My last tattoos were a Christmas gift from my husband. I've always hated my armpits, I mean, no ones is pretty, but I thought mine were particularly ugly. I may get more stars added on to the tattoo in the future. These tattoos were done by Amanda Murray in Richmond, BC.
