Inglot Sparkling Dust review

Inglot Sparkling Dust number 2

If you are someone who loves a strong highlighter, then this is the post for you. A few weeks ago I was introduced to the Inglot Sparkling dust, while attending a makeup masterclass with From Matte to Metallic. From the very first time I used it, I knew myself and this little pot of sparkle were going to have a serious love affair. Regular readers of the blog will know my love of multi tasking products and this little pot, is seriously hard working when it comes to multi tasking.

The Inglot Sparkling dust comes in a decent size 2.5g plastic pot. Considering how little of this product you use on each application, a pot this size will last for ever and ever. It comes with a powder puff, and the top of the pot has small holes, so that only small amounts of product is dispersed each time you open it. If I am honest, I can’t see much use for the powder puff, unless you are slathering the dust all over your body. A small tapered blending brush will do the job instead.

This product has a seriously reflective quality. While at first when I looked at it, I thought “how in gods name is this going to be used as a highlighter, without making me look like a disco ball ?”. This product never looks glittery on the face, but instead reflects the light so beautifully. This is no disco ball highlighter, but in fact the most beautiful glow. It wears well throughout the day and never looks cakey on the skin.

Before and after blending

The first and probably the main use for this dust is as a face highlight. I use a small tapered powder brush when applying this, and lightly pick up the tiniest amount of product. It is really important to tap of the excess here, a little goes a long way. Less is more when it comes to this sparkling dust. I place the dust in a v around my eye and build up to the desired look. When contouring this look is the ultimate powder highlighter. In fact, I use a cream highlight and then add this as well.

Place in a v around the eyes

Not only is this sparkling dust the ulimtate face highlighter, but my god is this the most gorgeous brow bone highlighter. It just really makes your eye makeup pop. I also place a small amount of this in the inner corner of the eye to add even more light to the eye area and open the eyes up more.It can even be used on the lids to give a metallic look to your eyeshadow.

The list of how this sparkling dust can be used is endless. Some people use it as a highlighter on their collarbone, run if down their arms and legs for a night out and you can even mix it in with you foundation to give a glowing look. I mysleg haven’t done this yet, but it would be interesting to see how it works out.

Like most Inglot products, the Sparkling dust isn’t going to break the bank. A pot will set you back €18, but my god it will last forever. It comes in a range of colours, but number 1 and 2 would be most suited to Irish skin tones. If you are a fan of highlighting, I highly recommend that you go to your nearest Inglot store. If you aren’t near one, ring them up and ask them to post one down to you. You won’t regret it.
