So as some of you may remember a couple of weeks ago I attended IMATS Sydney and went on a little spending spree and bought a number of things. So today, I am going to start reviewing and swatching the products for you guys and hopefully it will inform you on whether or not you should get it for yourself! First up, Inglot eyeshadows and blushers!
I was lucky enough to purchase 7 freedom system eyeshadows and two blushers from Inglot. I have read many reviews about Inglot products and I all I have to say is they definitely live up to the hype. Many other bloggers/youtubers have made the bold statement that Inglot shadows are softer and more pigmented than their counterparts such as MAC, Bobbi Brown etc and I think I may have to jump on the bandwagon with this one! I fell in love when I swatched these at IMATS already, but when I was able to go home and actually experimented with them I could not believe my eyes. These eyeshadows are incredible!
All 7 shadows I picked up are buttery soft and smooth, insanely pigmented, finely milled so extremely easy to blend, and long wearing. What I also love about Inglot shadows is there are so much variety to choose from - matte, pearl, D.S (double sparkle), AMC (Advanced Makeup Component) and AMC Shine. Another bonus to these is that I didn't experience much fallout when applying these - usually when applying more pigmented or darker shadows you will experience a little fall out, but with these none at all!
So as you can see, I haven't put my eyeshadows in an Inglot Freedom System palette - I just popped it into a magnetised myIpalette (which is similar to a z-palette). I do like the look of the freedom system palettes, but I thought I might as well just pop them into a magnetised palette so I can keep all my Inglot products together and I can also store more variety of products in one palette instead of having 5 different ones. If you're not familiar with Inglot's Freedom System, it is basically a way to choose and arrange eyeshadows in your palette. Depending on whether you like square or round eyeshadow pans - Ingot will provide a magnetic palette to place your shadows in whether it is 2, 4, 5 or 10 shadows. They also have palettes for blushers, powders and I think lip sticks as well which you can pick and choose what you want. Oh and Inglot also supplies individual packaged cosmetics as well - so there is definitely a lot of variety available! Oh and the prices of these eyeshadows retail for $10 - which I think is very reasonable!
AMC Shine 46 - a pale shell pink with a touch of iridescence and slivery white micro-shimmer
Double Sparkle 460 - dark taupe with copper and bronze flecks of shimmer
Pearl 419 - a muted olive green with an antique gold sheen and pearl finish
AMC Shine 12 - coppery brown red with sheen and copper glitter
AMC 75 - Deep fuchsia with purple undertones with silver iridescence
Pearl 450 - medium-dark raspberry pink with a pearl finish.
Double Sparkle 610 - Forrest green with gold and light green glitter
The photo definitely does not give these shadows any justice. They are much more brighter in person - I took the photo when the sun was setting so there wasn't much light!
For the blushers, these are pretty much the same consistency and formula of the eyeshadows. Incredibly soft and smooth, blendable and long lasting. The only problem I do have with these is that they are quite glittery. This is mostly my fault as I chose which blush to buy, but I didn't realise how noticeable the glitter was when at IMATS as it's obviously under artificial lighting and what not. Anyways, besides the excessive amount of glitter in the blushers, these are actually really good quality. The two blushers I purchased are (L) Blush 35 and (R) AMC Blush 51. I think these would look quite lovely during summer as the glitter will make your complexion more glowy and radiant. Naturally, the blushers are little more pricey than the eyeshadows retailing at $16 - of course prices vary depending on where you live etc.
Enough ramble - if you're interested in grabbing any of these or checking out what other shades they have head over to the Inglot website. There should be a full list of prices of all their products on there and also further detail on how their freedom system palette works. Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you have an amazing day!
