Hey everyone! Today I'm here with some VERY exciting news! I'm giving away an Inglot palette (quad)! As Inglot is a Polish company and I'm currently attending medical school in Poland (and I'm currently obsessed with Inglot) I thought it would only be fitting to give something away from Inglot! I know Inglot is available in other countries but it is FAR cheaper in Poland so it was also something that I can afford by missing a few meals, instead of not eating for a month! And it's such good quality I like this brand so much more than most others. I have never tried a bad product from them.
I've recently reached a HUGE milestone in my blog, I hit 3,300 followers on bloglovin, and 1,200 on twitter! I meant to do this giveaway at 3,000 followers but the number climbed so quickly, before I could get this giveaway posted I was already at 3,300! (I've been busy with school and tests so I haven't had time to sit down and write a good post!)
Look how cute this bag is! It's usually black with white writing, but for easter they changed it to these cute pastel colors! And look how fitting, it's radiant orchid colored! They're so on trend right now :)
The palette comes in this cute little box, so sleek and nice and the eyeshadows come separately, but I assembled the palette for safety while shipping so whoever wins this won't end up with some shattered eyeshadows! The palette packaging is so sturdy that the shadows won't break (which is also perfect for traveling too!). I promise I was super careful not to touch any of the shadows, and fully sanitized my hands before doing it, so if there are any germophobes out there don't worry! And now it's sitting in it's nice little box on my desk waiting to be given away.

Do any of these shadows look familiar? If you read my previous post about my own Inglot palette that I made, these were some of my absolute favorite shadows! In that post I have them all swatched and labeled by color so you can head on over to that post and see the actual individual shadows swatched!
I also asked you guys on twitter and facebook if you would want a warmer toned palette (browns and champagnes) or a cool toned palette (more whites, greys, and a cool black shade) and most people said warmer toned! (Sorry if you were one of the few people that wanted a cooler palette!)
Here is a closer image of this beautiful palette. I love the formulation of these shadows more than my Urban Decay and MAC shadows, and that's really saying something because I have been a die hard Urban Decay eyeshadow fan since around 8th grade. I used to save up all my money just to buy one shadow from them!
They are so buttery and soft, and so pigmented! If you go overboard dipping your brush into it there can be some fallout just because you have too much powder on your brush. That happened to me the first time I used it because I didn't realize how pigmented they were until I applied them!
I also have HORRENDOUSLY oily lids (I can't usually wear mascara that isn't waterproof because it transfers) and these didn't crease even when I used them without a primer! I also love these colors because you can wear them together and this palette will give you an entire look, or what I've been loving lately is doing just a wash of color with a fluffy brush over my lid and underneath my eye and it ends up with either a lightly smoky sultry look, or if you do it with the warm red based brown shade it's like an easy smoky eye that gives you that Victoria's Secret supermodel smoky look with hardly any work at all! Perfect for people without time to do their makeup, or for beginners just starting off doing a wash of color is a good way to easily do your eyeshadow and look like you've spent a lot of time on it!
It's great for traveling but doesn't have any excess packaging and will take up less room in your makeup bag. Especially because you could go on vacation and JUST take this palette since you can create a whole look using this, and you can even use the lightest champagne shade (111) as a highlighter, I do it all the time and I think it is light enough that it will suit any skin tone but not so white based that people that are tan or have darker skin tones could use it too.
My only request for this giveaway is that you are following my blog in somehow! (GFC or Bloglovin)
Thank you SO MUCH to every single person that follows me, I was looking back through my old posts and they were AWFUL, so props to you especially if you've stuck around since the beginning. My pictures were horrible up until the past few months, I've been getting everything worked out. It shocks me how fast my blog has grown, if you follow me on twitter you know that around Christmas I didn't even have 600 bloglovin followers, probably 400 on twitter, and less than 200 on GFC. So this is my big thank you to every lovely person that follows me, you all mean so much to me :)
