My First INGLOT Palette and Review!

Hey Beauts,

Many of you probably didn't know that last year (It feels weird saying that now) I went to IMATS. Whilst I never posted a haul and its a bit late to now, I can still post about some of the amazing things I picked up there. I went not really knowing too much or what to expect, I was mainly going to support my friend who is just starting off as a make-up artist. I had a blast though and discovered some amazing products including this palette. I have fell in love though and it is now my go-to palette on a daily basis. I even have to force myself to use other palettes. This is my INGLOT palette.

383 - 102 
608 - 405 - 07

Let me start off by saying the only reason I purchased this palette is because the colour range in the freedom system is outstanding and I really wanted to get stuck in to the fun of creating my own palette. I thought it was going to be a bit of a novelty product to be honest and definatly did not expect much. I picked up these five shades and although they are like the rest of my palettes, I tried to get more orange and copper shades in there to really make my blue eyes pop. The palette itself cost £8, the three shade pan cost £6.50 and the single shades cost £5 each. In total this palette cost £34.50 but was actually a lot cheaper at IMATS, at around £22. The shadows themselves are a really decent size, and although I use these A LOT, I still haven't really made a dent in any of the shades (Except where my nail went in), so they last for ages.

These shadows are incredibly pigmented and a little bit definatly goes a long way. The colours are stunning! I love them. Then again, I should, I picked them myself. I find the shadows to be really creamy and they glide on the eyes with ease and blend beautifully. I highly recommend these shadows for someone just getting into make-up purely because they are so easy to use. Sometimes I am just really lazy and don't even prime my eyes and the pigmentation is still stunning. None of the swatches above are done with primer and you can really see the pigmentation with one swipe. It annoys me slightly that they don't come up with better names for such an amazing product. For example golden sunset for 405 or melted toffee for 608. The only other issue I have is it is difficult to get the pans out once they are in, but I don't need to change them out so it doesn't bother me that much to hate the palette.

I am in love with this palette (did I mention that) and just cannot stop using it! Have you ever tried INGLOT eye shadows? Have you ever had fun picking out shades with the Freedom System? Isn't it great? What did you think of the eyeshadows themselves? Let me know in the comments below! I would love to hear if you love them as much as me! If not, what are your favourite palettes? Remember if you aren't already and don't want to miss out on future posts to follow on GFC and BlogLovin' and I will speak to you again soon.

  9. I have heard that the shadows are very nice! It appears to me (I may be wrong) but that there is hardly any fall out!
    Good color choices as well. I have blue eyes too so those colors work wonders!
    By the way, I love your blog name!
