Okay, INGLOT must have been sent from the heavens! I Love this stuff! I have 2 of the 10 square palettes, and 1 of the 4 blush palette. Both of the are from the freedom range. The pigmentation is Excellent! 1 billion times better than any chemist brand. Well worth the money! I now have 20 eyeshadows and i love them all! I can make so many looks, and i get so many compliments as the colors are beautiful. They are so smooth, soft and pigmented. They blend fairly well, and are very versatile. ie. If you want a dark look, use a lot. If you want a subtle look, only use a little. Some brands wont allow you to do this. I am converted, and have put my mac eyeshadows to the bottom of the draw! These are Soooooo much better and a lot cheaper!! I'm glad i only ever bought a few mac products before i discovered INGLOT. The blushes are also great! I will do individual reviews on each colour.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this concealer! I have very dark/purple circles under my eyes. Most other concealers dry out and make me look like i have lines. Even with a base. This one is great. Its so soft and silky, and you do not have to rub it in. it absorbs very quickly (about 15 seconds). And it has a matte, even texture when dry. Will probably keep buying this FOREVER!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this lip gloss! For my fair skin, it's the perfect shimmery, glittery, pinky tone. It's more of a peachy pinky color. The golden glitter add to it's charm. This is by far my everyday favorite. I dont like a bright lip. I like it because it adds some color without going over the top. I wear it with a MAC light pink lipliner and its looks so pretty. The only CON, i would say, is that it's very sticky. It has a good amount of staying power, you definitely know it's on!

I wish i had read the review for this before i bought it. I thought i had done my homework though. I had this applied by one of the Napoleon MUA, not once, but twice! Once before a big night out. And again just before i bought it. After wearing it for 3 days straight i got a bad blotchy rash all over my face. It has WAY too many chemicals in it. I dont even have sensitive skin! If you have sensitive skin BEWARE of this product!! I have to say, the staying power & Coverage is pretty good. Compared to what i have used before anyway. You will not need a concealer with it. However, it does feel really heavy, and it is VERY thick! Extremely hard to blend. A stiff Kabuki is a MUST. At the end of the day it does starts to settle in my pores. I have found that a good primer and mineral power reduces this a lot. I don't have a great deal of confidence when wearing it. I still wear it, only because i paid so much for it! I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wants a soft, matte, natural look with their foundation. It is very oily and had also caused some breakouts. My skin was fine before i started using this every day. I did have the occasional breakout before, but now it's every week. PROS: Great 100% coverage. No need for Concealer. Nice Packaging. Fairly good Staying power. CONS: Oily. Expensive. Very Very Thick and hard to blend. (Kabuki Brush a MUST). Thick and Heavy Looking. Settles in pores after a few hours. Can Cause breakouts.
