Recently, my parents took a trip down to Las Vegas and when they asked us if we wanted them to bring back anything I knew exactly what I was going to get. Inglot! Here in Canada Inglot is really difficult to come by. The only a few stores, all in Quebec, and for the majority of us Canadians that’s quite a long trip and not even remotely worth it for makeup. Some of you might know that I’m on project 10 pan but I figured I would take advantage of my parent’s offer since this was the only time I would be able to get my hands on some Inglot products in the near future.
Inglot eyeshadows are sold in a similar way to MAC eyeshadows. You can buy them in the pan or in palettes. Inglot calls their palettes the freedom system because you get to choose your palette size anywhere from a duo to a 20 pan palette and you can customize which colours go into your palette. I chose to go for a 10 eyeshadow palette which retails for $50 USD. Inglot breaks down the price for each eyeshadow differently depending on how many you buy. With the 10 pan palette the eyeshadows were $4.50 USD each and the palette was $5 USD. Each eyeshadow contains 2.7g of product. To put that into context, a single MAC eyeshadow in pro palette form contains 1.5g of product and retail for $11 USD/$13 CAD plus you need to purchase the actual palette! In my opinion, the quality of these eyeshadows is much better than MAC, and with a significantly better price point I say if you have access to Inglot, stock up.
I wanted to include some photos and swatches so you guys could get a better idea of what everything looks like so keep reading if you’re interested (just for reference I’m slightly lighter than NC15, so the colours will show up similar to if they were swatched on a white background)...

Bottom row: 453, 379, 439, 461, 65
I had a hard time getting the sparkle in the two last shadows to photograph. I think you need to see these in person to really see the amount and quality of sparkle. What’s especially nice about these two shadows is that the sparkle doesn’t disappear when blended and the actual colours are very pigmented which isn’t always the case with very sparkly shadows.

I also wanted to try their lip duos, mainly because of the cute packaging!
The swatch of the left is the lipgloss in this duo. Over the lips it doesn’t give this much colour, just more of a shimmer. I’m not a huge fan of the lipgloss and if given the choice I would most likely just purchase a lip paint on it’s own next time. The swatch of the right is the lip paint. This is my favourite part of the duo. The colour is very pigmented and glossy but not too sticky. It’s a really fun pink and I’m looking forward to wearing it in the spring and summer. My only complaint about this product is that you need to use a lip brush otherwise it can get quite messy.
And that concludes this swatch heavy post. I hope it was helpful and gave some ideas to any of you wanting to delve into the land of Inglot.
