We thought last week's L'Occitane summer haul was going to be impossible to top as the beauty product of the week, but Inglot are bringing the heat.
It's hard to believe that the make-up brand has only been in the business for ten years; Inglot Cosmetics have been ground-breaking in their goal to bring good quality make-up to the masses.
To celebrate a decade in the cosmetics industry, Inglot have partnered with beauty and style influencer Terrie McEvoy. The result? An incredible dusty rose eyeshadow palette, and two soft nude lip satin lipsticks designed by Terrie herself.
Meet our beauty product of the week; Inglot x Terrie McEvoy's 'Beautiful Adventure' collection;
She continued; "I also wanted to create something that would suit all skin tones and I really think that’s something we have achieved with this collection. I am so excited for everyone to experience this collection."
The five square palette with both light and deep warm undertones are perfectly matched to the soft nude accompanying satin lipsticks.
It's safe to say the colours will appeal to everyone, and is carefully chosen to suit all skin-tones. We LOVE the inclusive aspect; it's next to impossible to find the perfect nude look but Terrie's got us covered.
Planning your summer holiday can be either exciting or stressful, and most of the time you can't help but forget something important.
We all make the mad dash over to Penneys and Boots mere hours before the flight to try and grab everything for the suitcase, but it's a futile effort. We wanted to treat ourselves on this holiday, but we need a list of recommended beauty items.
This year is different, because we've got the ultimate make-up and skincare list for your trip abroad this year, and you absolutely need to experience them all. They're flawless.
1. KISS imPRESS
We all want to have the most gorgeous nails for our holiday, but how can we make sure they last for the entire trip?
KISS have released a special line of imPRESS nails, for superior, lasting shine with an indestructible top coat rivalling even the best salon gel polish.
imPRESS nails protect the nail and last up to a week, making them perfect for the coming summer months and festival season. Two new designs have been added to the range, and we've never felt more glamorous.
2. iWhite Instant and iWhite Teeth Whitening Toothpaste
Get whiter teeth on the go, wherever you go with these travel essentials; iWhite teeth whitening toothpaste and iWhite Instant. Your daily beauty maintenance has never been so easy.
Everyday food and drink can stain your teeth; from coffee, fruit juices and red wine to curry sauces, and indulging on holidays can lead to even more staining on those pearly whites of yours.
These nifty products are small enough to pack, so why not keep your teeth sparkling throughout your time away? Clinically proven to be safe and effective without the use of peroxide, iWhite gives you plenty to smile about.
3. Misslyn 'Beach Please!' Bronzing and Contouring Powder
The heatwave beauty look is oh so easy to achieve with this treat in your suitcase. Misslyn's 'Beach Please!' bronzing and contouring powder will give your skin that glow it's always wanted.
Healthy, sun-kissed skin can be achieved easily with this beautiful, soft-matte texture. We especially love the compact mirror, which makes this the perfect on-the-go top up for your holiday.
4.Payot Peeling Oxygénant Dépolluant
Exfoliating your face is so important for getting rid of all those pesky dead skin cells which haven't naturally shed themselves. When this happens, the leftover dead skin cells can cause dry, flaky patches and clogged pores, which is why exfoliating this summer is imperative for healthy skin.
Payot's crackling foam new skin effect suits every skin type, especially those leaning towards coarseness, and leaves your skin feeling totally brand new. The mask uses triple action- oxygenating, detoxifying, and neutralising pollution- in order to inject new vitality into your skin.
The pink gel will transform into foam which evaporates on the skin, removing impurities and pollution so your natural radiance emerges.
5. Delarom Orange Sugar Body Scrub
What is the perfect product that can help us to keep our glowing summer tans fresh this season? Delarom has the answer.
Their Orange Sugar body scrub contains sweet orange essential oil to gently eliminate dead cells from your body, so you get the most evenly spread tan as possible.
The sugar melts when massaged into the skin, leaving it soft, supple and deliciously scented.
6. Clinique Sun and Body Care Cream SPF 40
Clinique uses 'SolarSmart' technology to stabilise high-level protection against the ageing and burning effects of UVB and UVA rays, but remains suitable for sensitive skin (anyone from Ireland).
We adore their Sun and Body Care Cream, which is oil-free and dermatologist tested as well as water AND sweat-resistant.
Slay queens, without sunburn…
7. Misslyn's Colour Crush lipstick
Statement lips are all the rage for the summer, and red is the perfect colour to make your lips look irresistible.
Misslyn have a new collection of 22 shades, with beautiful creamy texture and rich tones for your make-up bag.
We're loving the unique colours chosen by Misslyn for your summer holidays, you won't be able to pick just one lipstick. They're all too beautiful for your make-up bag to miss this summer.
8. Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow
We can't get enough of Inglot's latest pure pigment eyeshadow collection. With over 30 shades to choose from, the make-up company are allowing you to have the most sparkly eyes in town this summer for a great price.
The pigment is so easy to spread over your eyelids, and can be used as a highlighting powder for your cheekbones, Cupid's bow and as glitter for your lips as well.
With a product this affordable and this versatile, with that many colour options, you've got to make sure it's packed in that case of yours this year. Your holiday won't be the same without it.
9. L'Occitane Delicious Lip Scrub
L’Occitane's new lip collection is infused with fruits, vegetables and herbs from Provence and the Mediterranean Basin, and the scent of these three lip scrubs alone will have you holiday-ready.
Raspberry Crush, Fabulous Fig and Marmalade Kiss; three flavourful scrubs bursting with goodies for your lips this summer. Enriched with Vitamin E, mandarin extract and carrot, pomelo and pomegranate oils, this gentle exfoliator leaves a sweet and delicious taste you won't want to forget.
10. DAFNI Allure hair tool
When you're on your holidays, it can be tricky to keep your hair as styled as you like it. With sun and sea comes frizz and knotting, but the DAFNI Allure straightening brush is one of the best products around for treating your hair kindly on-the-go.
Pop it in your suitcase or handbag for your travels, and you can make sure you won't be spending all of your trip trying to blow try and then straighten your hair, wasting valuable moments.
Instead, take a few minutes with the styling tool to brush your locks and they'll be straightened and looking glossy in no time, no matter the weather.
Enjoy your holibops, gals, and don't forget to treat yourselves. It's self-care, not vanity. (The Fab Five from Queer Eye came up with that line, we can't take credit…)
Remember: Packing doesn't have to be a tense experience, filled with expletives and forgotten essentials.
We absolutely ADORE Valentine's Day, not only because celebrating romance usually gives us an excuse to pamper ourselves, but because it's a wonderful time of the year for cosmetics shopping.

Ladies, I have wonderfully exciting news for you all!
Pop music sensation, JLO, has teamed up with the wonderful folks at Inglot to create a 70-piece makeup collection – and we're screaming.
Inglot Ireland stores across the country will be holding exclusive all day parties to celebrate the new JLO x INGLOT collection, which is landing in stores and online TOMORROW.
The 70-piece collection ranges from powders to lipsticks, shadows to eyelashes and cosmetic palettes and each store will have complimentary masterclasses at 1pm and 6pm to show guests how to use the products.
We had a sneak peak at the collection this afternoon – and it is OUTRAGEOUSLY gorgeous. Seriously.
You know the way JLO is renowned for her beautiful warm and glowy skin? Well this collection was created with that look in mind.
Prepare to get your glow on in a serious way.
All colours in the line were created and handpicked by Jennifer Lopez herself, with the star of the collection being the Freedom System palette that allows all you gorge ladies to create unique palettes with over 300,000 combination possibilities.
The expertly formulated products will range in shades from nude to glow, with a touch of smoky glam and the key products in the line will include an illuminator, a bronzer, a gloss and a mascara.
Director of Inglot Ireland (and all-round girlboss), Jane Swarbrigg said, ‘Team Inglot Ireland is home today after the most incredible weekend in Las Vegas. We met the main woman herself, Jennifer Lopez, who discussed her new Inglot collection in detail and chatted about her inspiration for the collaboration. We are super excited to unveil the range to the Irish public this Thursday!’
The Inglot South Anne Street Pro Store will host an exclusive masterclass by award winning makeup artist Keilidh Cashell from 6pm to 8pm who will recreate two signature JLO looks that were showcased at the VIP masterclass in Las Vegas with Jennifer’s makeup artist Scott Barnes.
Keilidh will show all guests how to achieve the signature JLO glow (yes please) and demonstrate an eye tutorial while giving an in-depth account of the new collection and tips from Scott himself.
FYI: tickets are limited and cost €20 and can be purchased by contacting Inglot South Anne street.
All stores will celebrate JLO with JLO music (say no more, tbh), balloons, party atmosphere and the first 25 customer will receive an exclusive Inglot shopper.
All customers who purchase the collection will be invited back in for a complimentary lesson and all customers of the collection will be entered into a competition to win a JLOxINGLOT hamper worth €150.

Excuse us for a moment, we've got a certain site to check out…
More recently, there have been further outlets in Blanchardstown, Dundrum, and South Anne Street in Dublin, as well as in Limerick, Cork, Galway, Dundalk, and Belfast.
Indeed, the tally currently amounts to an impressive 14. Then, of course, there is the ever-popularinglot.iesite too.
Inglot is a Polish brand founded more than 30 years ago. It really came to global attention, however, when it came up for franchise in 2006. Now it has close-to 500 outlets in more than 50 countries across six continents. Phew!
And certainly when she first stumbled across the brand, Jane, still only 34, was mega-impressed. “I was struck by the colour range (1,500 and counting!) as well as the innovative, quality products on offer,” she explains.
Something of a social media queen (she has 21.5K fans on Instagram alone), Ms Swarbrigg has by now created a firm community of loyal Irish Inglot fans. Not only that, but she’s created the popular hashtags #inglotaddicts and #inglotfamily – which regularly pop up on Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram.
She and her family now employ a talented group of some 250 people, and Jane prides herself on nurturing and building a team that is encouraged to use their creativity.
“A happy team is the key to a successful business,” she stresses. “Once you find the right product the next step is finding the right people to represent you and your brand. Then you just have to look after them.”
Inglot, which has its HQ in Mullingar, furthermore regularly gives back to its customers with free events in stores, as well as online activity such as demonstrations and competitions.
Hopelessly devoted to your beauty products but not so fond of shelling out half of your wages for them? Yep, us too.
But not to fear, as there is a bundle of brands and stores waiting for you to show them some (discounted) loving! From newsletters, to recycling programmes, here's how to save money on your make-up:

It's Irelands largest annual beauty and make-up show and it brings you everything from the latest products on the market to the latest trends for upcoming seasons. You can also save a lot of money with their beauty promotions from over 350 brands.
The skin-care staple encourages customers to return their old, empty containers for recycling purposes. Once you bring in ten containers to your nearest store, you'll earn one free travel-sized product.
Back to MAC
Like Kiehl's, MAC also encourages you to bring back their old containers and if you do, you receive a free lipstick! You need at least 6 empty containers and you can do the exchange in-store or online.
Inglot offers free delivery when you order over €60 online. They also have a free newsletter that will give you access to the latest offers, discounts and make-up events in Ireland.
