Inglot Eyeshadow Swatches + Review

Oh yes, you read that title right. I haz Inglotz.

I've been eying the products for a while, but as everyone as heard... their prices are increasing (or were increasing? Who knows at this point?) I had set up for someone to do a CP for me, they notified me of the higher price and said they could try and get what I wanted before the price hike. That fell through and I ended up sending my order through email to one of their locations. The prices were set to increase on February 7, and I sent it the day before... didn't hear anything for 2 days until finally an associate called me back to get my credit card info.

Now, if I had to complain about the phone/email ordering system... it would be two things: one, I didn't get a formal receipt and therefore have no listing of what I ordered (just to confirm that I got what I asked for, you know?) and also that the palettes were stuck inside of an unpadded box. Nothing was damaged... but these are eyeshadows and they easily could have been.

I picked out what I wanted based on swatches from a few different websites. In terms of pricing, the 10 square palette was $50 (I'll go into more detail on value later). The problem is that I know that price through bloggers... they don't actually list it on the website and I have no idea how much the 4 square palette was. My total came to $78, with shipping. Assuming shipping was $8-$9, I am guessing the 4 square pan is somewhere in the $15-$20 range.

So without further ado, let's get into swatches! (This will be pic heavy!)






















































The packaging is really sturdy... even my husband noticed how much heavier this is compared to say, a Mac palette. The closure is quite interesting as well -- it's a magnetic sliding cover. It was a little weird at first, but now I really like it as I feel it securely closes.













































I went for a taupe palette with this. I didn't realize the top right and bottom left shades were SO similar, unfortunately.

Now for swatches (first is flash, the rest are natural light to show the shimmer in the shades!):

Left to right: 420P, 460DS, 465DS, 434P













































































The darkest shade is fabulous. I cannot get over how multi-tonal these colors are... They look a little flat in the pans but when you swatch, they just come to life! I'm excited to have a little taupe palette, even if two colors are similar. 420P is a perfect taupe!




































































You know I'd go for a colorful palette, come on now :)

Swatches (again, first is flash, second is natural light to show the dimension of the shades):

Left to right, then bottom: 60A, 15AS, 72A, 14AS, 441P




































I needed a matte yellow and this one knocks Mac's Chrome Yellow out of the park! This is one swipe! It's got some loose sparkle in it so technically it's a satin, but it appears matte on the skin. 72A is also the same formula -- that's the burgundy. I had been wanting Sketch from Mac but something was holding me back. I'm glad I waited because this one is so pigmented. This took two swipes but I tested it with a dense brush and it has lovely pigmentation. Very happy with this part of the palette so far... oh and 15AS is a more pigmented version of Firespot. I will do comparisons in another post.

Left to right, then bottom: 395P, 44AS, 59A, 412P, 429P






























































I was really into greens when I ordered this, apparently. Again, their matte/satin formula is fantastic! 59A is a great dupe for Mac Bitter, only way more pigmented. 412P was one I was unsure about but I am so glad I went with it -- it's got a beautiful gold shift with a little bit of pink lurking around. 429P is a rare shade of cornflower blue that shifts slightly gold and silver. Quite interesting.

Overall, I love each and every shade. I honestly cannot say that there is one I don't like. They are unique, pigmented, and easy to use. I am still in the testing phase so I won't comment yet on their lasting power or anything... but so far, so good. I will post some FOTDs later.

I know that $50USD sounds like a lot of money, but when you remember that it equals out to $5 per shadow... and Mac is $14.50 per shadow, it's more than worth it. Also bear in mind that these square pans are 2.7g, while Mac is 1.5g. You are getting nearly double the product for 1/3 the price. Can you really complain? Even with the price increase to $80 for a 10 pan palette, they are still cheaper than buying the equivalent number of Mac eyeshadows (for the record, that would cost you $145). Further, the price increase is currently on hold until May. The associate I spoke with couldn't even confirm that, she said the company just told them to hold it.

Inglot is available in numerous countries. You can purchase by going into the store, ordering over the phone or by email (like I did). I've heard they are working on an online store... I am excited to see what that will be like! I would also love to go into a store and have a look... (as my wallet cries for mercy...)

  10. The matte yellow, the one swatched next to it, the chartruese. And the green. OMG. I really want to try some Inglot and there's one in the centre where I work and it is just SO HARD to not go in and drop all my wages. Glad to know their neutrals are lovely, though!

  11. I only have a few bits from Inglot but I LOVE them. The one lipstick I got smells amazing, lasts for ever and is the glossiest lipstick I've ever had that is still perfectly opaque. I also won a 4 colour palette from a giveaway and while I might not have chosen the colours myself, they are just amazing! So pigmented and smooth and lovely.
    The colours you chose are great! I loove the yellow and chartreuse green.
    The problem is it's really hard to get it in the UK, there's only one shop in London (which I've never been to because it's really hard for me to get to ) and I have no idea how to mail order. Also the website had no prices so I have no idea what the stuff costs in the UK!
    I agree about the US prices though, $50 for 10 shadows sounds absolutely fine to me, it's about the same (if not cheaper) than most indie brands and to me they're a lot better than Mac shadows!

  12. The colors are beautiful!! I wish we had Inglot here, but then I'd be broke lol x

  13. Excellent post! I love the colours you've picked. I have some of them, but I can see future lemmings too. 420P looks gorgeous. I want to get another 10 palette but because of your post may also get a 4 palette too - it's adorable, and probably a great little traveller!

  15. www.inglotusa.com is now up and running. The Freedom System Palette only cost $50.00 for 10 2.7g square palette. Price will increase from $50.00 to $80.00 by May 11th I believe. I just ordered all Matte (20 FSP)along w/ #63 and it only cost me $129.00 including tax and shipping. In addition to an extra empty 10 FSP in my order. SWEET!!!

  16. Arlene, were the items packaged securely? I'm a little nervous to order....

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Maggie: As I said in the review, the phone order made me nervous because it arrived with no bubble wrap or anything. I don't know if the online system is different. The phone order came from a store, meaning an average person, which means they may not have followed company policy. If anything breaks, it's on them... take a photo and send it, saying you want replacements if anything happens.

  18. Cydonian, I did it! I picked up another 10 palette & cute little 4 palette.

    I agree, the 10 palette isn't too big but for an overnight or short trip the 4 pan palette is perfect & I can even zip it up in my little makeup bag.

    I included 460DS & the 420P. You're right... it IS the perfect taupe! :)

    Thanks for the inspiration fellow Inglotette!

  21. I know I'm commenting on an old post, but thanks for this. I was interested in Inglot and knew there was one in NYC, but was turned off by the $50 price tag and didn't get one, since I'm a college student and all. But looking back, $50 is a great price and I wish I could go back to NYC just for the Inglot!
