We got one of the best news this year and it was the opening of the much much loved INGLOT right here in Karachi and since then it had expanded to Lahore, Islamabad and very soon to Multan! We all know INGLOT well by it's Gel Liner #77, O2M Breathable Nail Enamel, the Freedom System and the huge variety of products and color range of over 1500 shades. The range consists of over 450 ways to improve your lips, 600 ways to enhance your eyes, and over 300 ways to portray your face, while the extremely rich collection of nail polishes consists of up to 400 shades.
Founded over 30 years ago in a small town of Przemysl, INGLOT Cosmetics is now one of the world's leading manufacturers in color cosmetics. INGLOT currently has a presence at all major beauty happenings and events around the globe, from the runways of Fashion Week to stages and sets of TV and Broadway musicals.
The international expansion began in 2006 with the opening of the first franchise store in Montreal, Canada.

Karachi welcomed INGLOT Cosmetics at The Ocean Mall and the response it received was amazing with our favorite Gel Liner #77 getting out of stock in just a few days of its opening.
INGLOT - Karachi offers a wide range of products. With the major categories of Lips, Face, Eyes and Nails they also have a large variety of accessories such as makeup bags, professional tools, makeup brushes and fragrance. With very very reasonable prices -I say very because they are priced right as their dollar prices and not higher as the other international brands are priced here (like L'OREAL *sigh*).
Also, the good news is that the prices will remain this reasonable! I was skeptical at first and thought maybe these are just introductory but nopity nope! I was confirmed, to my utter satisfaction, that the prices will prevail! (YAY!)
Oh and while I was at it, I also inquired if they have any plans for Bloggers or a Bloggers Meet-Up and guess what my fellow bloggers?? They replied, "Yes! It's in the pipeline!" So yeah, I have high hopes regarding that! *Fingers Crossed*
The INGLOT store at The Ocean Mall is a Makeup Heaven for makeup lovers, where you can swatch and try the products at the spot before making the purchase (which isn't possible in Online shopping).
Makeup counters loaded with Lips, Face, Eyes and Nail products are lined against the left and right walls as you enter the store, with a separate counter for Freedom System in the center. The color selection at the store is enormous and so is the variety of products. I felt like a toddler in a candy shop wanting to get my hands on everything and fill my cart up to the brim but as a cautious buyer *cough* I selected a few items, seriously a few, as my first ever purchase from INGLOT. I believe in building my collection slowly and gradually. I try my best to keep the hoarder (you can see my hoarder side here) in me under control and purchase what I absolutely will use and thus be able to test and review for you <3
Until next time, Good Luck and Ciao!
