Why did I consider getting the Inglot Eyeshadows?
My husband and I where in NYC in January for a part work (his job), part vacation trip. I was so excited and waiting for this trip, since I finally had my chance to go to the Inglot store near Times Square. I don’t have an Inglot store where I live, so I had been really looking forward to this visit for a long time! Here’s a picture of the store as we were about to get there.
Where can you get these?
As I said before, I got my Inglot Eyeshadows at this store in NYC. They can also be bought of course at Inglotcosmetics.com. The prices at the store are about the same as those online, although the website can be confusing to navigate. Nothing beats swatching the eyeshadows at the store, though ;-)
What did I find in the package?
The palette itself I got, called the Freedom System, has a clear lid with the Inglot logo repeated, as you can see in the next picture. A flip top would be SO MUCH easier to use, but this one still works well. The top does come off entirely, so I get worried about nicking the eyeshadows with the top when I take if off. It’s not a big deal, just something to think of.
Once each eyeshadow pan is put in place inside the palette it gets really, really hard to try and get it out! I tried using a needle to try and get the pans out, but even this is hard. Just keep that in mind. If you do know of a better method to remove them, please let me know in the comments below!
Time to try them. What did they do for me?
The quality of the eyeshadows is amazing: nicely pigmented, silky and blendable. I can’t speak for all the finishes but the ones I got really impressed me.
Performance: The pigmentation and color payoff of these Inglot eyeshadows is amazing. Some of them just take a little bit to get a punch of color. There’s no need to put pressure on the brush bristles or even sweep back and forward to get great pigmentation. They feel buttery and silky to the touch and blend like a dream. 9 out of 10 colors I got are matte finishes and they are creamy rather than powdery.
Color Options: There’s a crazy amount of colors and finishes to choose from. Some of the finishes are Double Sparkle (DS), Pearl (P), Matte (M) and “Advanced Makeup Component” (AMC). I didn’t get any Double Sparkle or AMC colors. Most of the ones I got are matte finishes and they are phenomenal. The color options are amazing. Purples, greens, blues, yellows, oranges and neutrals… there’s something for everybody. They also have what they call the Rainbow Eyeshadows, which have 3 different colors in the same pan. A great alternative for getting a little of several different but related colors.
Versatility: These eyeshadows can be used dry or wet. I find myself never using them wet because I get all the color payoff I need using them dry.
Volume: You can get them in round or square pots. Solid colors go for $5 and the Rainbow Eyeshadows (which have 3 different colors) go for $7. The quantity/price ratio provided by Inglot makes these eyeshadows very affordable. You get 2.7 g / .095 oz. of product on each pot.
These were the colors I got:
- Inglot Eyeshadow 379 – Matte Periwinkle
- Inglot Eyeshadow 395 – Pearl Beige
- Inglot Eyeshadow 329 – Matte Brown
- Inglot Eyeshadow 372 – Matte Aqua/Teal
- Inglot Eyeshadow 103R – Matte Yellow Rainbow
- Inglot Eyeshadow 108R – Matte Orange Rainbow
- Inglot Eyeshadow 119R – Matte Pink Rainbow
- Inglot Eyeshadow 102R – Matte Terracota Rainbow
- Inglot Eyeshadow 109R – Matte Green Rainbow
- Inglot Eyeshadow 107R – Matte Browm Rainbow

What is the Verdict?
I was so curious about these eyeshadows, so ready to try these and I now feel finally happy that I got the chance! All the hype I saw on youtube and read on other beauty blogs was dead on! I’ve had these eyeshadows now for over a month now and I can say they are amazing! The pigmentation, the large quantity of colors, the multiple finishes and the incredible value make these eyeshadows a great addition to the makeup toolkit of beginners and professionals alike. Thank you Inglot, I’m very impressed!
