I've wanted to buy some Inglot shadows for such a long time, but I've never been near a branch. When inglot.ie launched last year, I was delighted! I finally got around to ordering a few eyeshadows after Christmas, so I thought I'd show you which ones I picked.
I bought a square 4-pan Freedom Palette (€8) and four single square shadows (€6 each). Postage was €5, so the total was €37.
The order was delivered by courier (Fastway) within 48 hours.
The palette was much heavier than I thought it would be, which was a pleasant surprise. It feels sturdy and I like the magnetic closure.
The magnets in the base of the palette are really strong, the shadows definitely weren't going anywhere when I popped them in. I'm not sure how this would work out if I wanted to swap shadows, but I suppose I'll cross that bridge when I come to it!
First up - 409 (Pearl). It's a medium chocolate brown colour. (Note - this looks accurate on my laptop but when I checked it on my phone it looks much warmer than it is - the swatches on my skin down the bottom are much, much more accurate for this colour. It's a cool brown, more like the colour of dry cocoa powder, if that makes sense!)
Next - 56 (AMC). This is a mossy green with tiny bits of gold running through it (not visible on the eye).
This one looked completely different on my eyes - it came out much brighter than I expected. I'll still use it, but I was disappointed that it wasn't as khaki as it looked in the pan.
Next up is 406 (Pearl). It's a coppery, bronzey brown.
This was SO nice on. I don't have any other shadows like it, it was so pretty.
The shadows are excellent value at €6 each - they lasted for hours, until I had to take my makeup off. They blend really well and the colour payoff on all four was excellent.
Here's a swatch on a very zoomed-in weird looking hand:
I found the swatches on the website accurate enough, but I would still google images of other shades if I were going to buy more (who are we kidding, I've a list of about ten more already that I want to get). Beautylish have a nifty tool on their website where you can see product swatches on fair, medium or dark skin before you order. Hours of fun!
I'll definitely order from inglot.ie again, their speed and service was fantastic, the order was packed well, and the palette was excellent value even with the postage on top of the order.
Are there any stand-out shades that you would recommend? I don't like mattes, but I am a savage for a good brown, burgundy or copper.
