The Inglot sticks are for your foundation mainly but a lot of the artists in Inglot have been using them as Highlight & Contour tools.
There is a large range of shades available, 10 to be exact. 5 light shades and 5 dark shades. The light shades for fairer skin or to highlight and dark shades for darker skin or to contour.
I bought the foundation stick in the shade ‘112′ as I wanted to use it as a cream contour. I’ve totally gone off my crown brush contour pallet as it has dried up on me. When I saw Inglot were releasing the sticks I had to get one.
Niamh in Inglot Liffey Valley advised me to get the shade 112 after I told her what foundation colour I usually wear. Don’t be afraid to ask the girls questions in the shop, they can be so helpful.
When I got home I had to give it a try straight away, I did my foundation and eyebrows, then I started my contour. Make sure not to powder over your foundation before doing the contour
I put it on my cheek bones, around my forehead to make it appear smaller, down the side of my nose and then just under my lower lip line to make the lips appear bigger. It went on so smoothing. It goes on quite heavy so make sure to start with a small amount and build it up gradually. I loved how creamy it is on the skin.
I used the Inglot 4SS brush which is amazing for blending this foundation out. I loved how well this brush worked with the foundation stick. The foundation can blend out on the skin exactly where you want it too.
With regards to the shade, I think it was perfect for my face colour. I usually use Stila Stay all day foundation in the colour 05 Hue and the 112 stick was darker so to contour it was great. I think the darkest is 113 so 112 is quite dark. No harm in going into Inglot and get one of the girls to try it on your face to see what will suit you best.
I set the contour with a contour powder. I usually use fawn from the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit or else there is a shade in the NYX contour pallet which is similar. They both work well.
I really want to get a light shade that I could use for under the eyes to highlight. They just blend out so nicely! The foundation sticks retail at €33 which I think is good for what it is. Defiantly worth a try. Have a look at all the shade here online or take a trip to your nearest Inglot!
