When the press release for China Glaze's Vintage Vixen collection came out, I wasn't convinced I'd need too many of them, what with all the "frost" this and "gold micro glitter" that. Ingrid was described as "'greige' creme with copper micro glitter", which I couldn't see looking that great. Greige, yes, I'm all for that, but not with copper. Yet when I saw the bottle in the display, I bought it, because it looked so nice and taupe-y. It took me until now to try it,
and now that I have, I've fallen hard. Ingrid is gorgeous. The micro glitter (I'd call it shimmer myself) looks more gold to me than copper, and I wouldn't think gold would look good with taupe either, but somehow in Ingrid it does. The shimmer is balanced just right; doesn't come forward too much and distract from the elegance of the base color but doesn't get lost in normal room light, either.
If I hadn't given up buying backup bottles, I'd get one of Ingrid.
I'm going to be taking some time off from the internet for the next week or so to have some fun offline. I've set up a few scheduled posts so this space won't be entirely dead, but I won't be reading comments and e-mail very often if at all during that time. I will catch up as soon as I can once I'm back at the keyboard.
