Inglot Body Sparkles

I don't know if you know this but I have a rather large obsession with glitter. I possibly own at least one glitter from every makeup brand as I'm eager to try out different glitters. I know a lot of you are probably thinking 'isn't a glitter, a glitter?!' but trust me, all glitters are different in their own way. You could call me a glitter connoisseur. 

I know I probably don't need any more glitters but I really wanted to try Inglot glitters (Body Sparkles) as I'd heard they were meant to be fabulous. My boyfriend bought me an Inglot glitter for Christmas and loved it so much that I purchased 3 more. I'm so impressed with Inglot glitters and you shall find out why later in this post. 

Inglot glitters are formerly known as 'Body Sparkles' but to make life a lot easier, I'm going to refer to them as 'glitters' in this post. The Inglot glitters I'll be showing you are '59', '73', '66' and 'XL7' and they all retail at £12.00 each. 

So without further ado, here are the Body Sparkles I own...

'59'
Fine Multi-coloured Glitter

'73'
Chunky Silver Glitter

'66'
Fine Silver Glitter

'XL7'
Fine White Glitter (Blue Reflects)

Swatches...

The photographs above don't do any justice whatsoever so I decided to insert a mini clip to show you all how sparkly these beauties are. You'll be dazzled by the glitteriness!

The Good:
  • Pigmentation - All the glitters I purchased have amazing pigmentation. When using the glitters, you don't need to use much at all. The smallest amount is suffice. Whenever I use one of them, I just use what's on the inside of the lid. I also find that number '66' is the most pigmented due to the finer particles of glitter. 
  • Longevity - Inglot glitter lasts on the eyes all day. I find that with most glitter you have to apply a sticky base to the eyelids first as glitter tends to fall down or 'fly away'. You don't have to use a sticky base with Inglot glitter as it stays on the eyelids all day. The only way the glitter will come off is if you physically remove it yourself.
  • Texture - Inglot glitter has very fine particles which are lightweight. I sometimes find that glitter has large particles which can feel uncomfortable on the eyelids. This isn't the case with Inglot glitter, it's perfect for wearing in the daytime and the evening. 
  • Variety - Inglot glitters come in large selection of colours and they all have different particle sizes which is good if you're looking for a chunky or fine glitter. I love Inglot glitters and I think the colour selection is fabulous. 

The Okay:
  • Packaging - The glitter comes in a glass jar which might be considered to be a bad thing because if you drop it on a hard floor, it's going to smash. Other than that, I think the glass jar makes the product seem a little more expensive. More classy and of a higher quality. 
  • Size - The glitters aren't exactly the largest, they're quite small in comparison to other branded glitters. To give you an indication, MAC 3D glitters are triple the size of Inglot glitters and only cost £3.50 more. I guess the good thing with Inglot glitters is that you only need to use the tiniest amount unlike MAC glitters where you have to use a lot. 
  • Availability - Inglot have an online website and also a store in London but that's it. I wouldn't say you can easily get hold of Inglot products as there's only 2 ways of buying but for me, availability isn't a huge issue as I buy online. I just don't understand why they charge £5.00 for delivery.
  • Price - £12.00 seems quite reasonable for a glitter but I must admit, they aren't the biggest. If anything, the glitters are tiny in comparison to other branded glitters. 

The Bad:
  • Website - The glitters are amazing and I cannot fault them at all, but the website isn't the best. The glitter colour chart is appalling as it doesn't give you a clear image of what each glitter is like. The chart resembles a few fuzzy pictures so you basically have to guess what you think looks nice. Luckily I'm happy with my glitters but you really could get yourself in a pickle if you choose the wrong one by mistake. 

Overall I love Inglot glitters and I will definitely purchase more in the future. The quality of Inglot glitter is amazing and I think it's great how you only need to use the tiniest amount. The Inglot glitters I own are going to last me a lifetime but that won't stop me buying more. Out of all my branded glitters, I'd say Inglot glitters are the best, without a shadow of a doubt. If you can justify spending £12.00 on a glitter, definitely try Inglot. If not, then give POP glitters a go. 

Out of all four glitters, I recommend trying '66' and '73'. Those ones are the best by far!

I hope you like my lovely glitters and if you'd like to take a look at the other glitters available, here is the link; Inglot
