Inglot haul!!

First of all sorry I've been MIA for a bit. As I mentioned last time, I went to Florida to work at Disney for a week, which was a lot of fun because my sister came along so I'd work and then meet up with her in the afternoons to play in the parks. So sorry for being a bit lazy and not posting, but I haven't been wearing much makeup.

So the other day I placed an order with Inglot! These are the first Inglot products I've ever used and I am so impressed with the stuff I bought. First, I want to point out the fact that shipping took NO time at all! I ordered early Tuesday morning, and it was at my doorstep Thursday afternoon! So, before I even opened the box I was already impressed with Inglot's efficiency. The products were very well packaged (as you can see in the picture to the left).

Inglot has this amazing system called the Freedom System, which allows you to create your own palettes in all shapes and sizes. You can choose from face powders, blushes, eyeshadows, lip colors, brow powders and waxes. 

The one complaint I have about Inglot is that none of their products have names. They are all numerical, and the website does not offer any information on their products. So unless you are actually in an Inglot store (which, given that there are only 5 stores in the US, isn't a likely possibility for me), you need to scour makeup blogs looking for swatches. It took me a couple days to finally decide what I wanted to get. But anyway, I bought 5 eyeshadows, a five pan palette, and a gel eyeliner. I also got samples of their Under Makeup Base and YSM Cream Foundation in shade 43. I haven't tried these yet, but I'll let you know what I think.

Oddly enough, I realized as I was checking out that I bought one of each of their eyeshadow formulas:
  • Matte 352- Pale pink flesh tone color. It's a great dupe for MAC Blanc Type, but Blanc Type is more of a neutral beige. The texture is identical to the Matte 2 formula.
  • Shine 46 - Peachy pink shimmer. The shine textures are meant to be a bit sheer, but the shimmer is very noticeable, so this would work perfectly as a highlight.
  • DS (Double Sparkle) 465 - Medium toned neutral brown with gold glitter. Usually I'm not a fan of glitter in eyeshadows because it usually doesn't transfer well, but this shadow looks just as gorgeous on the eyes as they do in the pan.
  • Pearl 434 - Dark purple-grey color. The texture of this reminds me of Frost eyeshadows by MAC. In fact, 434 looks like a darker version of Satin Taupe.
  • AMC (Advanced Makeup Component) 64 - Very pigmented black with gold glitter. The texture of this is similar to the DS shadow. I was worried it would feel like MAC Beauty Marked, where none of the glitter actually transfers and you just have a glorified matte black. NOT the case with this! I can clearly see the gold glitter in this shadow.
The eyeshadows are all buttery smooth, very easy to work with, all the while retaining excellent pigmentation. I am absolutely AMAZED by Inglot! I'm a convert! As soon as I fill up my MAC 15 palette, I probably wont be purchasing many other shadows from them. The quality of these Inglot shadows are just as good or better, and at a fraction of the cost. What is brilliant about Inglot is the fact that they automatically give discounts on the Freedom System, so the more you buy, the less you pay per product (like Magic Your Way tickets, but that's just the Disney nerd in me talking. LOL!).
  • Face Powders (.46 oz):
    • 1 - $15
    • 2-10 - $13
  • Blushes (.25 oz):
    • 1-3 - $11
    • 4+ - $9
  • Square Eyeshadows (.09 oz):
    • 1-3 - $7/each
    • 4-9 - $5/each
    • 10+ - $4.50/each
  • Circle Eyeshadows/Lip colors/Brow Powders/Concealers (size varies by product):
    • 1-3 - $5/each
    • 4+ - $4.50/each
These all fit snugly in the Freedom System 5 pan palette. This is a perfect travel size palette. They also sell them in 2, 3, 4, 10, 20, and now 40 pan palettes for eyeshadows, as well as 2 more palettes for face powder and blush. The palettes reduce in price by 50%-75% when you add any Freedom system colors in your cart.

Sorry the photo is blurry
Last, but not least, the Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gel is easily the best eyeliner I've ever used. It is super pigmented, very soft and glides on so easily. It's a waterproof formula so I didn't need to set it with powder. I also used it on the waterline, and it has not budged. It's amazing!! They have 20 colors available, so you can get this amazing liner in any color you want. They are $12/.19 oz, compared to $15/.1 oz for MAC Fluidline.

Sorry this review was so long! I am just so excited about these products and I will most definitely be purchasing from them again! If you are interested in any of these products, I highly suggest you check them out. They have webstores for the US as well as Australia, and jump at ay chance to visit one of their stores. If you've used any Inglot products, leave a comment letting me know what you think and what your favorites are.
