When I entered Becky’s (AngelsSecretsX) giveaway, I never thought I’d actually win as I’m generally pretty unlucky with these kinda things but when she told me that I had actually won, I was over the moon. I have lusted after Inglot for the longest time, particularly their eyeshadows and I’ve always wanted to have my very own custom made palette and Becky was giving away a five pan palette. Squeal of excitement. Becky asked me to pick from ten shades in total and then she would choose which ones would sit in my brand spanking new and totally gorgeous five pan palette. Naturally, I opted for all neutral shades as they are my favourite and I’m a creature of habit. Plus they are great for everyday wear throughout all seasons and all months meaning I’ll get a hell of a lot of wear out of them. Inglot eyeshadows come in super cute square pans and sit happily inside a magnetic Freedom System palette which is what holds them in place (I have no idea how to actually get them out by the way so if anyone ever wants to share that with me, that’d be great). The palettes also have a magnetic point in each corner where it meets the four corners of the lid so that it stays firmly shut which I really like. I’ve been having a lot of fun with all this magnetic malarky. The palettes are truly fabulous – they look very professional, sleek and chic. They’re lightweight and travel friendly. I think I’m in love…
Inglot eyeshadows don’t have names, instead they are labelled with a number and their finish. The colours I received; 12 Shine which is a shimmery copper brown, 31 Shine which is a shimmery golden taupe, 351 Matte which is a medium chocolate brown, 337 Matte which is a soft cool brown and 351 Matte which is a silky off white-yellow. All in all, the colour selection is fantastic and I can create a number of different eyeshadow combinations and looks with these little beauties – 357 and 12 make gorgeous crease colours, where as 351 makes the perfect brow bone and inner corner highlighting shade and 31 and 337 would be ideal for colouring the entire lid. It’s safe to say that I am completely and utterly smitten. The formula of these eyeshadows is to die for – buttery soft, silky to touch, easy to blend and apply with zero fall out. What more could you ask for? The longevity and staying power is also second to none. I much prefer them to my beloved MAC Cosmetics eyeshadows and that is saying something. They cost a lot less too. Each eyeshadow pan retails at £4.50 and to purchase a five pan palette it costs £7.00 so in total this palette cost £29.50. Given the quality and design of the palette and the eyeshadows, that my friends is what I call a total bargain. You can buy a custom made four pan palette from MAC Cosmetic with four shades for £45.00. You do the maths! Inglot palettes are a true thing of beauty – trust me! The obsession has begun… The only downside for me is that Inglot isn’t as readily available in the UK and as easy to source as MAC Cosmetics and although they do have a UK website, I do like to have a good swatch before I buy so I know what I’m looking for. Although at £4.50 per eyeshadow, I’m sure I can take the risk… *heads over to Inglot’s website to peruse the eyeshadows*.
