Awesome for the price, the inglot website needs work as is not user friendly. I bought a 40 piece blank palette, whivh is very sturdy and high quality and 10 eyeshadow I am very impressed and will be purchasing more
Yes, a great alternative to MAC. Stays on all day with a primer, doesnt crease, minimal fall out, no creasing, for about half the price of MAC products. Better range of colours too - for eyes. I'm sold. Converting to Inglot for Eyeshadows.
love these eye-shadow they last all day long. inglot are perfect when it comes to eye-shadow. the more eye-shadow you buy in the pallet the cheaper it is.
After seeing rave reviews of Inglot on makeup blogs and on Youtube, I was determined to get my hands on a set.
Inglot is fairly expensive in Australia, so I waited until my trip to London, where it was around 33% cheaper, and went a bit crazy and bought 2 palettes.
When I got home, I finally got a chance to try them, but alas. The quality of the eyeshadows just weren't up to scratch. To be fair, I haven't got too much to compare it to. 95% of the time I've been using Urban Decay palettes. Still, the shadows just weren't very soft and blendable. They lacked pigmentation when using an eyeshadow brush.
I do like the packaging and the system though. I'd give that 5/5. I also really liked the concept of having a customizable palette. I now have a selection of purple eyeshadows, which is really nice because I didn't have that before.
But for the price, I expected better. :(
So many colors so little money! The color selection is out of this world! So many too choose from and I want them all. Ive only purchased matte shades because it is (was) so hard to find a completely matte pallet. The consistency is buttery smooth. Some are a little patchy and some are a little sheer but overall Ive had excellent luck with them. Wish there was a more stores around - its hard to see what colors your picking! You cant beat the price though and the packaging is just lovely! I love having the option of creating really small palettes or really big palettes. So much freedom! Will definitely be repurchasing and continuing to fill up my palette!
LOVEEEEEE inglot. The shadows are extremely pigmented & creamy. They blend out so effortlessly and i have yet to experience any horrible fallout if any at all even with the extremely glittery shades! The Freedom palettes are definitely the way to go! Palette pricing depends on what size u want and shadows range from $6-8 and are WAY bigger than the ever so overrated MAC shadows. continued >>
What a great concept. Nice bang for your buck. I purchased the 5 pan square, and filled it with the rainbow shadows. Smooth, creamy, blendable. LOVE Inglot!
I decided to buy ten Inglot eyeshadows and the palette after reading the raves on youtube from so many people. The closest Inglot store is in Newport Beach, California. I live in L.A. and this store is about 50 to 60 miles one way. But they do take orders and deliver. I placed my order with them on a Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday. I heard some negative comments on youtube from those who ordered on the Inglot web site. They had to wait a week, ten days or longer to get their order. I also think their web site is not user friendly. So be advised.
As far as the pallet, it's sturdy and good quality. The magnets are extremely strong, so make sure when you put a shadow in its place because it's quite difficult to get it out. I tried sticking a little toothpick in one corner, but ended up puncturing the eyeshadow. Also be careful when taking the cover off the pallet. Don't let your fingers get caught. Just slide it off.
My initial challenge was how to check out shadows to make sure that I got the ones I wanted. I watched swatch videos on youtube until I thought my eyes would fall out. Also, there were links posted to some blog sites that were extremely helpful. These eyeshadows have different finishes. There is Matte, Pearl, AMC or Advanced Makeup Component, Shine and D.S. or Double Sparkle. My favorites are the pearls followed by the mattes. I look for colors in a specific range, so I wasn't overwhelmed by having to choose from about 160 total colors. I love browns, coppers, rust or warm toned shadows, peach and bronze.
I think the best way to find eyeshadows is to go to the store and test them. However, after watching videos many times I felt comfortable choosing my shades. I knew that I would get the deep brown mattes. I have been looking for these for some time. Shade #327 and #329 are absolutely perfect. The #327 is a cooler dark brown, while the #329 is a true dark brown matte that I have been looking for a long time. They are buttery smooth, highly pigmented and apply like a dream. There is one range of brown pearl shadows, #402, #406, #409, #421 and #422 that are simply gorgeous. I ended up getting #406, a golden bronze and #421, a medium-dark coppered brown. I can use them on my lid and then apply the matte brown eyeshadows in the crease. I also got some warm rust browns, a dirty taupe matte, an intense red brown and #452, a medium-dark-burgundy-red with a pearl finish that was a bit out of my normal shade range but ended up looking amazing with my green eyes.
If I could give these eyeshadows a higher rating, I certainly would. The quality, the amount of product you get, the color payoff, the range of finishes and colors, the staying power is simply amazing. If you bought ten MAC eyeshadows, the refill pans would cost $12 apiece for a total cost of $120 plus the pallet. I paid $60 for ten eyeshadows and $16 for the pallet. Since my order was over $50, shipping was free. Also you are getting a lot more product with the size of these eyeshadows.
Inglot has definitely raised the bar with their product. I do integrate my MAC shadows with my Inglot shadows to create so many different, beautiful combinations and gorgeous looks. I have the best of both worlds.
If you don't have an Inglot store near you and must rely on swatches, I would suggest checking out youtube videos and the links to blog sites. I know that there were stores scheduled to open in the L.A. area soon. I thought that ten eyeshadows would be a good wardrobe and a good start. But I was able to jot down about seven eyeshadows that I would still love to get. So I do see another ten palette in the near future! I don't even have enough superlatives for these eyeshadows. I have become more cynical as I have gotten older, but in this case the hype is totally justified. I am thrilled with mine and love experimenting with so many different looks.
I went to Las Vegas for vacation, and shopped at Macy's there, found inglot and I was so thrilled it's so cheap and affordable with good quality of eyeshadows! So I bought three to test for a month after got back home. I am so addicted to this shadows, it's so blendable, smooth and very easy for lady like me who isn't a professional makeup artist. I love it so much, so I searched everywhere nearby, only nearby is Seattle from Portland so I am traveling up there to pick up more shadows that Portland do not carry. Alert: Shadow colors shown online does not show accurate colors what I saw in store and what I have is much different colors. I suggest you go in and see it to make sure you like it. I like it over Mac, because of blendable which I like the most about inglot. I still prefer mac painterly pot first then put inglot shadows over it. It's so beautiful done!
I just got three pans in the mail. I'm pretty sure inglot has just made me a lifelong customer. The shadows have excellent pigmentation, the blending is outstanding, and although I can't speak to wear time as I've just applied them, even if they disappear in a few hours they're still miles ahead of many competitors. The fact that you can just order the pans is also a major plus. personally, I like to de- pot anything I'm going to use on a regular basis and pop it into a magnetic palette, so this saves me sooooo much time and effort. Their pan is weirdly sturdy (in a good way!!!!). Im not sure if the pan has magnets in the bottom or if theres just a ton of product because its a bit thicker than other pans. Also their color selection is huge. Most brands have maybe one or two shades that might fit my needs if I blend them together, I now own two shades that both work great individually. I'm floored.
