Inglot is celebrating 10 glorious years in the cosmetics business by making numerous new announcements, and their first one has us gasping with the excitement.

As well as creating new loyalty cards, a ten-year anniversary palette, a partnership with retail giant Next, collaborating with top influencer Terrie McEvoy, Ciara McKeown and Lucy Fitz, they're rolling out the brand in a number of pharmacies.

Burke’s Pharmacy in Naas, McElhinney’s Dept Store in Ballybofey, Co. Donegal and McCauley’s Pharmacy in Carlow are included in the roll-out, after the brand joined one of Ireland's biggest online beauty retailers; Cloud 10.

Now the brand, which was brought to Ireland in 2009, are bringing out their new 'Minis' collection; 8 Mini Lip Satins, 10 Mini HD Foundations and 4 Brand New Mini ‘Glow On’ Highlighters.

The new concept minis are the beauty brand's eighth announcement as part of their Inglot10 campaign, and thank Goddess it's payday because we want ALL of these.

They're the first in the global brand's launch into the world of travel-size make-up products, and range from just €6 to €9. Heaven help us, we can't be stopped from buying them all.

The Minis Collection officially launches today (Wednesday, July 31) across all Inglot stores nationwide, and on their website here.

‘Glow On’ Mini Highlighter

The brand new, intensively pigmented 'Glow On' Gel Highlighters come in four, radiant shades and are perfect for illuminating your beautiful skin this summer.

Achieve that dewy 'strobed'' lighting effect with the gorgeous highlighter, priced at just €9. The 3D metallic highlight look you'll create won't let you down, day or night.

You can use the 'Glow On' Gel Highlighters under or over make-up, and all over your body. They also fit easily into your purse for those nights on the dancefloor, so they're like a mini best pal in your bag.

Mini HD Foundation

Inglot's record-breaking, bestselling high-definition foundation is now available in mini form, and we couldn't be happier.

The brand's infamously long-lasting, imperfection-concealing foundation is every beauty guru's dream purchase, and now the mini foundations come in 10 shades.

They're also suitable for all skin types, so whether you're dry or oily-skinned, these are for you. Considering they're €9, they're pretty much for everyone.

Mini Lip Satin Lipsticks


Inglot's creamy, soft mini satin lipsticks are ideal for holiday-wear this summer.

Rich in emollients and special ingredients, the lippies have a velvety smooth finish. They'll leave your lips fuller and more moisturised than ever, how can we say no?

Mini Lip Satins sell at only €6, so we're officially buying the entire range.

Since it's launch in September 2017, Fenty Beauty products have been at the top of every makeup lovers wish-list. 

From iridescent lipsticks to long-wear foundations, Rihanna created the brand with the promise of inclusion women of all skin tones – so it's no wonder the collection has reached cult status in its first year in the market. 

With a stellar collection of products, Fenty Beauty makes the perfect gift for every occasion, which is why a woman named Charlema Webb asked her husband, Vincent, to get he a highlighter and brush for their one month wedding anniversary. 

However, us beauty nerds often forget that not everyone knows their baking powders of from their BB creams, and it seems Charlema didn't explain exactly what she meant by 'highlighter'. 

After visiting numerous drug stores, Vincent was unable to locate the all-important Fenty product, and decided to settled on another brand instead. 

Returning home after his haul, Vincent proudly presented his new wife with a four-pack of Sharpie highlighters and a Goody hair brush. 

Able to see the funny side, Charlema shared the hilarious story on Facebook, before the post was shared by the official Fenty Beauty Instagram account. 

"Waiiittt… he tried it though . A+ for effort!! @cwebb0414 we got the real thang coming to you soon!," the post read. 

It's the thought that counts, right? 



Another day, another amazing new beauty product we'd like to formally introduce you to.

We were recently scrolling through Instagram when we stumbled upon a post by Trendmood (beauty gurus/ superstars). 

The page uploaded a video sneak peak from beauty brand, Farsali beauty. 

The clip revealed an amazing jelly highlighting cream, called Jelly Beam, and holy MOLY, is it great. 

Farsali is widely known for the most amazing face oils you have ever seen, and we have no doubt that this new highlighter will be much the same.  

The brand also uploaded the quick snap of the gorgeous new beauty product:

"But not just any kind… it's NOT a liquid, cream or powder… it's JELLY! It's unique Jelly consistency is due to the Farsali skincare DNA – which will keep your skin hydrated and protected from free radical damage, while you beam at the same time!"

They continued, explaining: "This baby goes on like a jelly and sets like a powder, giving you that beaming wet-satin finish. Launching November 1st, exclusively at farsali.com. Get your cheeks and sunglasses ready."

Oh, and it will hydrate your skin while also protecting it from free any damage – combine all that with a beaming satin finish, and we may just have the best beauty release of 2017. 

This amazing product launches on November 1, and we are honestly counting the days.

It'll set you back $40 according to the website, which works out at about €35, which is a small price to pay for glowing joy. 

Maybe we should pop this baby on our Christmas lists. 



So we all remember the phenomenon that was the vajazzle, right? 

Women were glueing tiny little diamond-like stones to their vaginas, for aesthetic purposes (we're not messing!) 

Anyway, after the vajazzle came and went, we met 'Passion dust', and we thought we had reached peak vagina – but we hadn't.

Recently, we stumbled upon a cosmetic brand called The Perfect V, and yep, it is a full range of beauty products for your lady parts. 

The Perfect V have a wide range of products designed specifically for your vagina – including a HIGHLIGHTER (ugh!)

Anyway, some of their products make sense, like the gentle wash or even the moisturiser – but the illuminator is something I cannot abide by. 

Listen, in my personal opinion, none of us need to be sprinkling glitter on our vaginas, but if you choose to do so, I suppose you should know the facts. 

The Shades of V illuminator is a luminizer for your vagina (yes, really), that is designed to "highlight, soften and illuminate."


According to the website it is a "special highlighting cream with skincare benefits."

Here are some of the 'benefits' it promises to exude:

1. Luminous iridescent colour to add some extra prettiness to the V.

2. Renews and improves the skin, making it appear more youthful and fresh.

3. Brightens and minimises the appearance of skin imperfections.

4. Quick to dry, leaving a luminous glow to the skin.

5. Vitamin E evens skin tone and prevents dark spots

6. Elderflower soothes skin and luminizes the skin

7. Vitamin E anti-oxidant that conditions the skin

Eh, we'll be keeping our highlighter firmly on our faces, thanks. 



You know what we love? The magical combination of makeup and mythical creatures, that's what. 

For months now, we've been torn about whether we prefer mermaids or unicorns, because honestly they're all so wonderful. 

However, there is a new beauty product on the market that combines these two mystical creatures – meaning we no longer have to choose sides. 


Everyone is starting to get Unicorns Vs. Mermaids palettes! We are so excited! This Friday will be the last day they are available! Once we are sold out we are out! Thank you @courtneysmakeupcorner for this GORGEOUS shot! ———————— Have you ever seen cuter packaging?!?!? @toothandnailcosmetics #unicornsvsmermaids #highlighterpalette I about died when I realized the actual highlightpalette was the same as the sleeve outside of it!!!!

The gorgeous humans at Tooth and Nail Cosmetics have released an amazing new highlighter palette, that has amalgamated unicorns and mermaids to form one super creature. 

The gorgeous purple kit is complete with powdered highlighters in a myriad of shimmering hues.

The top row is devoted to mermaids with shimmery shades dubbed Poseidon Issues, Plenty O' Finboys, and Ursula Complex – we're obsessed.

As you probably could have guessed, the bottom row pays homage to the beauty of unicorns the Internet has been obsessed with lately. The unicorn-themed highlighters are called Magical AF (which is vry fair), Holocorn, and Non-Believer.

Tooth & Nail Cosmetics is a North Carolina-based beauty brand (that ships world wide) who makes intensely pigmented highlighters.

You may recall the amazing Sailor Moon highlighters that went viral a while back? Well, the colour payoff of the Unicorns Vs. Mermaids Palette is no different.

For $48.50, you can get these stunning highlighters delivered right to your door (ours should arrive any day now!)

We're obsessed! 



For a while now, US makeup brand, Anastasia Beverly Hills has been a big player on the beauty game.

Their Pro Series Contour Kit and Dipbrow Pomade have become cult favourites among makeup nerds all over the world, and now the brand are stepping up their glow game with the release of a brand new liquid illuminator.

The brand already stock a number of fan-favourite powder highlight kits, so the announcement that they're releasing a new liquid glow has got everyone (us included) super excited.

Whether it's a light-catching strobe or a subtle cheek shimmer, highlighter is the must have beauty product of 2017, so naturally, we have to have it.

The brand teased the product on their Instagram last week, and it looks like shimmering liquid gold. Which, let's be honest, is pretty much exactly what we want out highlighters to look like.

Rainbow highlighter probably isn't the first thing we'd be reaching for on a day-to-day basis, but when the new beauty product started going viral across social media at the beginning of this year, we were obsessed with the hued highlight. 

Beauty junkies hailed the rainbow highlighter as the best way to get closer to your inner unicorn, as tonnes of Etsy shops and boutique beauties started creating their own versions. 

PS… Rainbow Highlighter, €4.00

Now, Penneys has stepped up to the plate with their own offering in the form of the PS…Rainbow Highlighter. 

We spotted this little number while browsing around Penneys in Dundrum (see what else we found over on Snapchat at shemazingie) and we just had to have it. 

First things first, the highlight comes in at a very reasonable €4.00, so experimenting with this festival look definitely won't break the bank. 

However, you better get into Penneys ASAP, because when we went, there were only a couple of pans of rainbow fairy dust left. 


When swatched, the highlight proved that it was shimmery and pigmented, which left us thinking that the six rainbow shades might be more suited as eye shadows than anything else. 

Our main prerogative was to test whether this highlighter is actually wearable, and to see what it looks like on top of our usual face of makeup. 

We were seriously hoping that the dazzle dust would look cool rather than gimmicky, but at the same time we wanted to see exactly how rainbow-esque the highlight applied.

So, we used a PS… fan brush from Penneys to apply the highlight in one swoop, creating a rainbow line of highlight across the cheekbone. 

While definitely not for everyday wear (or maybe it is, you do you boo) the look was pretty, colourful and shimmery, and an excellent pared back alternative to glittery festival make up (we're still finding glitter particles in our makeup bags from Forbidden Fruit).


We had seen some YouTube tutorials about the original rainbow highlighter, which suggested blending all the shades together on a fluffy brush to create a seamless single shade. 

Using a Morphe Tapered Duo brush, we gave the pan a swirl and buffed it along the cheekbone, creating a dewy, golden highlight when all the shades were blended together.


A post shared by The SMSW Store (@thesmswstore) on

The effect was subtle and glowy, the complete opposite to the rainbow-striped look we created using a fan brush. 

Our verdict? Whether you want a muted, golden highlight or a dramatic rainbow festival look, this €4.00 bargain could see you through summer.

Plus, think of all the potential eye makeup looks.



There is no better feeling than knowing your highlight is on fleek, and Penneys is clearly on a mission to help us achieve the look.

Instagram is freaking out over a particular Penneys highlighting palette, and we don't blame the makeup obsessed masses for lusting after this product. 


A post shared by megan (@megan.gant) on

 The Ps… Pure Glow highlighting palette is a glowy, shimmery dream set with four gorgeous, high-shine shades.

There is Desert, a pure icy white, and Glimmer, a warmer nude highlight on the top tier.

Then below them is Eden, a peachy pink highlight, and Firefly bronze, the ultimate pure gold shade. 


A post shared by Kwan Bow  (@kwanbow) on

The palette is currently in stores, but it's flying off the shelves. 

This will keep us highlighted to perfection all summer long, and the marbled packaging wouldn't look too shabby in an Instagram flat lay either.

The high street bargain store has rolled out a new selection of icy, high intensity highlighters that look completely gorgeous.  


A post shared by Stephanie Ojinta (@stephieojinta) on

Rather than just having an ice white finish, their range of colours include silver, gold and rose gold.

The shades are shimmery perfection, with names like Mermaid Glow, Rose Prosecco and Champagne.

And at €3.50 each, you can't really go wrong. 

Ps…Highlighting Powder €3.50

Our makeup bags are screaming out for a new, affordable highlighter, and with festival season just around the corner, now is the time to experiment with different types of glow.

While the silver may not be perfect for day-to-day wear, it would look amazing layered under some festival glitter, while the rose gold would be divine with an on-trend cranberry eye.

As for the gold? Well all you need is a deep, glowy tan to pull that one off.

We'll see you in the queue, all three in hand.

Black highlighter is officially taking over our social media feeds as the new coolest way to strobe your face. 

We appreciate that it sounds kind of scary but trust us, it looks amazing. 

Jeffree Star introduced us to the joys of the darker shades with his amazing Onyx Ice Skin Frost Highlighter, and we've been hooked ever since. 


A post shared by Jerrod Blandino (@jerrodblandino) on

Black highlighter is the perfect addition to any makeup bag, as it can be used to achieve the perfect smokey eye, dabbed on lipstick for a vampy effect, and used on your cheekbones for an alternative contour.

Our favourite makeup brand, Two Faced, are getting in on the black highlighter action.

The brand's founder, Jerrod Blandino, recently shared an image on his popular Instagram, where he teased us about a new product. 

"Finally got my samples from the lab. These are going to become something AmazeBalls," he captioned the snap, that showed three compacts filled with lace-looking powders. 


A post shared by Too Faced Cosmetics (@toofaced) on

The three pans of powder appear different, with the one in the centre looking like a typical, pinky highlighter.

The two pans either side of this classic cosmetic are a beautiful combination of black and gold, that will totally change up your makeup game.

Currently, we have no information as to when these products will officially launch, but we will be waiting with baited breath.



Kylie Jenner is expanding her beauty empire like there's no tomorrow, and the next thing on her list? Kylighters.

Yep, her lipsticks and eyeshadows are old news, because it's time to make way for some highlightin' magic.

Debuting the line on Snapchat, Kylie gave her fans a glimpse of the new product and said it was a "very yellow fun true gold."

Whatever that means…
