Oh Inglot, what did I do without you?
I was pretty late to the Inglot party when they first launched in Ireland. I had always heard of them, and heard great things but it wasn't until last year that I took a huge interest. Their products are absolutely fantastic and definitely match up with the likes of MAC or Urban Decay. So far I only have eye products but having completed a make-up course with Inglot, I can confirm their foundations, concealers and pretty much everything else is also top notch. The eye-shadow colour selection is beautiful, with all shadows being highly pigmented and lasting for pretty much the entire day and night. The huge difference between them and MAC/Urban Decay? The price. A single eye shadow costs 6euro. You'd spend that on a sandwich. Compare that to the 12euro you'd spend on a single MAC shadow, with the same amount of quality and you're laughing. Not to say I wouldn't purchase MAC shadows at all, because as a make-up lover I can't get enough of anything. But I do lean more towards Inglot, and have yet to be let down.
My only little gripe would be that Inglot number their shadows instead of naming them. Which as you will see below, makes it really tricky to reference them. The numbers are printed on the bottom of the pan, and the pans are fairly well secured in the palette, which is great because you can rest assured they aren't going to fall out. However, after many attempts, I can't get these fellas to move. If you are interested in any of the stunning shades below, bring a copy of the photos into any of the stores and the girls will probably be able to distinguish them better than myself. Other than that, I can't fault them at all and really do recommend checking out their range, if you haven't already. (Highly unlikely). The following palettes have been made using the "Freedom system" so you can mix and match with whatever shades you like.
There are 5 different finishes in the Inglot range; Matte, Pearl, DS (double sparkle), AMC and AMC Shine. To be totally honest, I'm not quite sure what the below are until I whip out the pans, apart from the obvious matte ones. I will update this post as soon as I can with all the correct information.
The warm golden smokey eye palette -
Usually the most requested look, simple but gorgeous.
Pearly white - My inner corner highlight and brow bone shade. Also sometimes use it as a cheekbone and cupids bow highlight.
Yellow Gold - One of the most used shadows in this palette, it goes with just about everything and perfect for enhancing blue eyes. I also use a pop of it with the palette below to complete the "sunset" vibe.
Matte light brown - My new go-to contour shade for pale skin as it almost has a grey undertone. Absolutely amazing, I use it as a both an eye and a cheek contour. Creates a "natural" contour shadow.
Bronze/Gold brown - This compliments the gold so well, or I also sometimes wear this on its own blended all over the eye for a kind of grungey dark look. It's very richly pigmented and a little goes a long way.
Matte deep brown - I use this as a soft eye liner, a blending colour and also when I want to create a defined socket look.
The sunset eyes palette -
A little more daring and the look I'v been wearing every chance I can get.
Pale matte orange - Not something I would usually have gone for but I am so glad I did. The most perfect blending colour, or if you want to go all out, pop it all over the lid. This is a blue eyed girls best friend.
Dark plum - I'm going to struggle in describing these next 3 shades. I use this for deepening up the corners of a smokey eye. Gorgeous shade with a bit of shimmer.
Light bronze - This is one of those colours that can also work amazingly on its own applied all over the lid.
Darker bronze - Yep, I am shite at describing these colours, they are just that amazing. I use a little bit of this on the outer edges of the eye, with the purple, to add more depth. Both this and the light bronze have an almost cranberry/red undertone to add warmth.
The AMC pure pigment -
One of the most amazing products I have ever purchased. Just look at it! I have yet to actually use it with an eye look but judging on the swatches, I know it will be absolutely amazing. This is No. 63, a bronze/orange glitter. Again, blue eyed girls take note. This is to die for. 15euro per pot.
Inglot describe this as a "waterless clear liquid that transforms any powder into an easy to apply liquid". This would be used to create an eye liner out of any shadow or pared with a pigment, like in the above photo. Genius product for only 10euro.
I'v been wanting to write this post for a while now but felt a bit useless considering I couldn't tell you all what the actual colours were (and how absolutely shite I am at describing said colours...). My apologies and again, I will update this post ASAP.
