By now, I think we’ve probably all heard about the incredible pigmentation and quality of Inglot’s eyeshadows. So I won’t say much on that except, yes – it’s completely true – these really are a phenomenal product. The regular squares are among the best eye shadows I’ve ever tried. In the pan, the formula is on the powdery side, but when applied these shadows feel extremely smooth and buttery.
I love the the rainbow shadow concept. I’m really big on keeping my makeup bag as minimal as possible when traveling, so I like products that are compact. I will say that the rainbow shadows I own aren’t quite as super-pigmented as the regular square shadows, but pigmentation is still good. 101R is one of my favorite shadows, particularly the middle and dark shades – they look so basic, but the tones are surprisingly unique and create such a pretty, natural look. I like how with 107R you have everything you need for a full makeup look, from base color to liner, in one shadow. I find myself often using the darkest shade for liner – it’s dark enough to give definition but still looks soft and natural.
The Freedom System lets you pick from a huge selection of shades in five different finishes. They’ve recently extended the Freedom System to include even more amazing colors and empty palette options. And, while I can’t get myself to call these shadows inexpensive, they are definitely fairly priced, especially when compared to other brands offering similar quality and selection.
Have you tried Inglot? Any recommendations?
