Inglot Face & Body Sparkling Dust '02'

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)


I have been posting makeup tutorials on YouTube since July 2011 and I took up blogging not too long after that. I think by now most of you will have come to the conclusion that I am a massive Inglot fanatic, and, well..I am.
It was the first makeup brand that I had tried out that wasn't from the 'drugstore'. My love for the brand, along with my collection has only ever grown since! Up until the last year or so I had only ever bought the eyeshadows in Inglot using their freedom system. After building various sized eyeshadow palettes I decided to branch out and try some of their other products. 
 I wasn't disappointed :)



My most recent purchase has been their sparkling dust powder which I think will be much loved by all this Summer. The sparkling dusts come in three shades '01', '02' and '03'..pretty straight forward like the rest of the Inglot range. Their products are labelled by number opposed to by names.
I went into the Inglot in Dundrum with the intention of buying the first shade of the sparkling dust. After seeing swatches online I figured this shade would suit my skin tone the best. Unfortunately they couldn't find the tester so I couldn't try it out for myself on the day. I decided not to take a chance on it and I purchased shade '02' instead, which I will keep to use for when I am wearing fake tan.


The packaging is simple and classic, nothing overly fancy! I really like how the bottom of it is clear so you can see the product inside. It makes it so handy to easily pick out the product if you have your makeup stored in drawers.
When you twist the top off you will see that there is a makeup poof inside. Its a nice touch which would be handy for travel purposes but I never really use the powder poofs that come with products. I would be more so inclined to use it if it came with a face powder, but not with a highlighter it gets a little messy application wise.


I was relieved to see that the product comes in a 'shaker style' pot otherwise I probably would have lost half of the product before I even used it. The Inglot face powder just comes with a twist off top so I was assuming it would be like that. Thankfully it wasn't, you have no idea how much face powder I have wasted through stupidity and overall clumsiness. Probably the most disastrous event that resulted in me purchasing a new face powder was when I decided to blow-dry my hair, forgetting I had left the powder on my dresser with the lid off. Imagine a sandstorm…replace sand with powder. 
Yep, thats how things went down.


The sparkling dust is labelled as a multi use product, for use on the face, body and eyes. The sparkling dust is a highly pigmented highlighting powder as you can see from the picture above! It looks gorgeous applied to the high points of the face such as the tops of the cheek bones, down the centre of the nose and to the tip of the cupids bow. It gives such a gorgeous healthy golden glow to the skin. As it is so pigmented its really easy to go over board, so pick up a little product at a time and use a light hand.
I have also used it on the eyes as a loose pigment to give a subtle shimmer to the eyes. For a more intense eye makeup look try mixing it with Inglots duraline, the combination is a match made in heaven!
I even tried mixing a little in with my foundation to give my skin a dewy glow, which is a preferred way by most when wearing foundation coming into the Summer. That look is personally not for me, i'll forever be rocking the matte look for life haha! 
The product retails at €18 and if you hold an Inglot pro card it'll be cheaper again. Overall not a bad price in my opinion for the product. Its multi use and a little goes on a long way. I can't fault it!

What are your favourite highlighters?
I'm still on the hunt for the perfect face highlighter!
