Inglot Eye Shadows

As you may have noticed in this post, I acquired four Inglot eye shadow squares while I was vacationing in Las Vegas. I'd never used the brand before, but I was excited to after hearing rave reviews from other bloggers. I actually couldn't decide what to get the first time I went in, I was so overwhelmed by all of the things I wanted! I ended up going back in the next day and picking up a few things, including four eye shadows and a Freedom System palette to house them in. I decided on some flattering neutral colors I could use in a lot of different looks, as well as all together when I wanted a quick, no-brainer look that would go with a bunch of different outfits and be appropriate for different occasions. I have to say, I did pretty good! These four along with a highlight color are gorgeous and provide a lot of depth on the eye; a little bit of grey or brown eyeliner makes it a nice casual daytime look; if I want something more dramatic, I do darker eyeliner and add more of the two darkest colors from the palette.

Two of the shades are matte formulas. The mattes are 363 and 344. 363 is a minky mauvish brown, and 344 is a warm muddy pink. The third shade I bought is Shine 37, which is an auburn brown with a bit of a metallic glow and some fine silver shimmer. The final shade is Pearl 402, which is a glowy, iridescent hard to describe greyed pinky-orange with some brown in it. This one really adds a lot of depth to my eyes and makes them pop.

These shadows are really nice; they're all very creamy and incredibly pigmented. These are some of the easiest to work with mattes that I've encountered. The shades are $5 each and have .09 ounces of product in them; the freedom system palette that I bought to house them in doesn't seem to be available online, but the 3 slot palette is $7, and it couldn't have been much more expensive than that.

With flash; same order as before. 

And here is a look I did awhile ago using these eye shadows. It was long enough ago that I'm not sure what else I used, but if I had to guess, I'd say that Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Baked is on the lower lashline, and Rockstar on the top lashline. I know I used Inglot's AMC Matte Lip Pencil in 19 in these pictures.

I've been really happy with these shadows, I'm just sad that I don't live closer to an Inglot store! These are affordable and perform great.
