Inglot Eyeshadows

I finally got off my lazy ass and went over to Fashion Island to explore the Inglot store. I know, I know, what was taking me so long? I don’t know either. :) I did haul a bit, but that was kinda to be expected since HELLO it’s Inglot. But you know what? You can haul on Inglot now too! If you’re in the U.S., they now have e-commerce. YAY. Check it out at http://www.inglotusa.com!

I ended up getting a filled 10-palette of eyeshadows, which might sound like it cost me a fortune but I assure you Inglot shadows are very affordable. The 10-pan palette is $20 if you buy it by itself, but if you buy it filled it drops to $5. And the more shadows you buy, the cheaper they are. I got square pans. If you get 1 or 2, they’re $7 each. Already way cheaper than a MAC shadow…but it gets even better! If you buy 3 to 9, they’re $5 each. Then finally if you get 10 or more, they’re just $4.50 each. So for $50, you get 10 eye shadows in the palette. Not too bad considering for 10 eyeshadows plus a 15-pan palette at MAC you’re looking at well over $100.

Inglot shadows come packaged in little plastic clamshells like Stila and mark. pans do.

Adding even more to the value of Inglot shadows, they’re 2.7g or .09 oz of product. If you’re wondering how that compares to other shadows, MAC pans are 1.5g or .05 oz. MUFE singles are .08 oz, but will set you back $19 each. So basically, you are getting a lot of eye shadow for your money.

Plus, these palettes are better made. They’re extremely sturdy plastic, and held together with VERY strong magnets. They’re also stackable! So if you wanted to put 3 or 4 palettes on top of one another and just one lid on top, you could do that. Except honestly I do not recommend it because that would be HEAVY. These have some definite heft to them. They are much thicker and stronger than MAC palettes. If you are a makeup artist wanting to exclusively use the Inglot system, you might want to invest in a case that has wheels! ;)

See what I mean? These have some thickness! Rawr.
I love how the lid is translucent so I can see what shadows are in the palette. For now I just have one, but in the future when I have others this will be awesome.
And now for the shadows themselves. I purchased 10 shadows that represent 3 of the 5 finishes (DS or Double Sparkle, AMC, Pearl, AMC Shine, and Matte). I got DS, AMC, and Pearl shadows. I tested tons of shadows though, and there weren’t really any stinkers in the bunch, texture-wise. The Double Sparkle formula is actually really awesome as far as glitter goes. 
I tried to pick a good representative of cool, neutral, and warmish shades. I’m happy with every single one!
Top Row L to R: AMC Shine 35 (white), AMC Shine 36 (cool silver with reflects), and Pearl 444 (TAUPE!)
Bottom Row L to R: DS 482 (Blurple with pink/blue shimmer), Pearl 434 (cool plummy taupe), Pearl 423 (reddened plum brown)
Top Row L to R: Pearl 419 (khaki but not too golden with pearl), Pearl 397 (the top picture of the whole palette is more color-accurate; it’s a pinked beige with pearl that looks way prettier swatched than in the pan)
Bottom Row L to R: DS 457 (warm rich chocolaty brown with gold sparkle), DS 461 (neutral beige with gold sparkle)

Today for work I just did a quick look with P397, DS457, and DS461, and I am extremely happy to report not one fleck of fallout. No, really. I applied the shadows mostly with a MAC 239 brush. No. Fallout. And very pigmented! I will do swatch photos soon, but I wanted to get this up right away because I’m just so excited to share the pretties with you! I checked back over the Inglot website and I must say the product swatches on their site are pretty accurate. In the past if I ever saw a shadow that had a matte base but lots of added glitter, I’d RUN. But these are very nice. I used a slightly tacky base (Urban Decay Primer Potion) and not one speck of glitter fell onto my cheeks. AWESOME. 
So far I’m definitely on the Inglot bandwagon. I can’t wait to play with these more and give you a full report on the colors soon. If you have any questions that I haven’t covered here please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I’ll do my best. :)
