More Than A Worthy Alternative To Mac.


I think that everyone is so in love with Mac that it's come to a point in the average beauty bloggers life that they only really stick to Mac and designer cosmetics (Chanel, YSL etc).

I am so sick of seeing Mac hauls. Really, I am.

I'm from Australia so Mac is extremely expensive to buy. I think it's around $45 - $50 for a single blush. In my opinion? I'd prefer to buy a complete Chanel palette off a wholesale cosmetics site for that amount of money. Don't get me wrong, I love my cheeks but if I could cover my whole face and not just my cheeks for $50 then I'd prefer to do that.

Maybe you'll think I'm a tightass, maybe you'll say I'm not 'up with it', but most of my Mac products have been gifts, bargains on Ebay or swaps I've done in the past.

I love makeup more than I can explain but I am never tunnel visioned about anything in life, whether it be makeup, food, clothes, shoes or even the smallest thing like stationary! I love to try different things, cheap or expensive, new or old.

I can't say that this is a new addiction of mine, because I have been shopping here for a long time but I think I should give an honorable mention to Inglot.

It can't be easy being in competition with a company like Mac.

I have found that they have the best quality in packaging and product. But what is the best quality they offer? The price!

I just got three nail polishes for the price of one. They were on sale for $5 each, just because they are last seasons shades!!!

Point me in the direction of a Mac store who would lower their prices to $5 just because it's last seasons stock and I'd be there in a heartbeat. I think the point I'm making is that I don't think I've ever seen a sale at Mac. They get away with keeping prices the same because they have a 'permanent line'.

I love Mac and this wasn't intended as a dig at Mac so please don't get me wrong but in my opinion, Inglot is THE GREATEST!

I love love love love love love them.

Just look at these photos and just TRY to tell me that they are not worth putting your Mac Pro store on hold for a while?!

i never pay full retail price for mac! i always buy it off wholesale sites. i like mac cos of their wide range of finishes in their products, especially lipsticks, and i love their dazzleglass.. i have yet to find another brand that can duplicate the finelly milled glitter in dazzleglass without it feeling gritty.
that said, inglot is pretty awesome too! ive got one of their lip paints that i got on sale for $6... i do love their sales! i guess inglot isnt as widely recognised as mac, thats why people rarely feature it on their blogs.

@ Renay - High 5.

@ Ipeh - I totally agree. Love it!

@ BECKY - definitely try Ebay! im sure stuff will come up on there.

also, maybe even have a look on their site and ask one of your friends/blog buddies in another country to buy it for you and send it. paypal makes the world easier for things like that.

i have a gf in America that i know will buy me anything and ship it to me. all i have to do is transfer her the money in paypal and bam. done.

so thats always an option?

@ IK - i have so many of their nail lacquers. im addicted. im planning to buy a few lip colours and definitely going to try the freedom system.

@ krissy - i need to start searching mac on wholesale sites. it goes for the same on Ebay as it does in the store pretty much. dazzleglass is awesome. i love mac lipsticks and glosses more than anything else i reckon. but, having said that, last time i was in inglot, i could have spent an hour just swatching every lip colour they had.

@1xellus1 - thanks love. i feel like i get a bit carried away sometimes haha.

I love inglot but when ever I go to the stores the damn sales person won't even entertain me. I think the most important for me is some customer service before products.

Anyway I know mac is just ridiculously expensive here. A mac lipstick in Singapore cost SGD28 that's around AUD23. madnesS!
