; une tasse: a beauty and casual fashion blog: Oops (I did it again)

Oops (I did it again)

I was in Westfield the other day waiting for my sister to finish work and I found myself gravitating towards Inglot - it's so sleek, colourful and inviting. I've seen many other bloggers rave about Inglot and I was keen to have a look for myself. I went straight towards the blushes and started swatching away to my heart's content and to the annoyance of one of the SA's who seemed irritated that I didn't need his help :\

I ended up buying these two blushes - one powder in shade #30 and one liquid/cream in #86.

Now the title of this post is in reference to the fact that my reasoning for buying the powder blush was "Wow I love this colour and I know I don't have anything else like it". Then I came home and realised this could almost be a dupe for the Coral blush by Sleek I already own. I do this all the time with nail polishes and end up buying around 5 in the same colour pink. I think it's a disease!

They look REALLY similar to me but perhaps the Inglot blush is more pink? Sometimes I can't tell the difference. However I suppose all is not lost as I find the Inglot blush easier to work with and lasts a lot longer than my Sleek one.

And onto the disappointment that is the liquid blush........

I love the colour but the formulation has really let me down - it took 4 pumps to get this colour and I had to wait for each layer to dry before applying the next.

As you can see it's a bit watery, so the colour doesn't show up when I apply it to my cheeks and it doesn't *set*. Considering I paid £10 for this I am really annoyed and expected much better. I am going to see if I can thicken it by leaving it in the sun because shaking it 100x doesn't seem to make any difference!

Has anyone else had this problem?
