Last year I showed you all my first Inglot Eyeshadow 10 Pan Freedom System Palette. I told you about the story of Inglot cosmetics' beginning, where they were located, how many stores they had. it was quite educational. Please read that first before reading this post because I'm not going to repeat the information again.
Go on. I'll wait.
OK. Back? Yes. Thank you, it was informative.
I'm glad you are all caught up. I now bring you my second 10 pan Palette from Inglot. Now you may be thinking "10 shadows. That's a bit excessive." And to that I say. Excessive is my middle name! However, the shadows are only $5 a piece and the 10 pan palette retails for $14. Total cost for 10 shadows with a palette $64. That's $4 more than a Dior Quint (1/2 the amount of shadows) That's $11 LESS than a Tom Ford 4 pan eyeshadow palette. It's $160 LESS Than a custom filled 8 pan Chantecaille Eyeshadow Palette. (See how I justify?) Oh but don't go all. I can get 10 elf Eyeshadows for $10 and I can get a 99 color eyeshadow palette from watchamacallit random website for $20. Sorry but when you compare the QUALITY of an Inglot Eyeshadow it an elf eyeshadow, it's apples and oranges.
The palette that the eyeshadows are housed in is sturdy as heck. It has 4 little magnets holding the top on. The hard plastic is sleek and there is no wasted space.

As far as the shadows go. I found the Inglot shadows to be the most pigmented, most even textured, best blending, and LONGEST LASTING shadows I have ever used. Not only does Inglot offer a freedom system to customize your palettes it offers a variety of finishes and textures in the shadows. Matte, Pearl, Shine, Double Shine, etc. The varying finishes and similar colors in the different finishes remind me of the Shu Uemura system...only with MORE color choice and MORE pigmented shadows.
This second palette has A LOT more grey shadows in it. I was on a grey kick when I ordered this one. I also went a little crazy with a HOT PINK matte shadow, but I have yet to use it in a look where I don't feel like I'm
a) Trying too hard to look 15 years younger than I am
b) Blend it properly with the other colors where it doesn't look like a 5 year old applied my makeup
c) Get over myself and just have fun with it.
But that's beside the point. Let me show you the BEAUTIFUL colors.
P454 - As close to Stila Diamond 'lil, MAC Smoke & Diamonds, Iman Wicked, Benefit Where There's Smoke, NYX Dune as you can get. In other words. I purchased yet another Grey Taupe that I already have 5 dupes of.
DS501 - A Pretty Light Grey Matte with Silver Glitter. Very sheer, but buildable without getting muddy.
P448 - Silver Metallic. A very nice opaque metallic silver shadow
P399 - Mauve Pink Pearle. Looks warmer on my eye than it does in the pan.
DS502 - A Dusty Purple Satin with Silver Glitter. It reminds me of deeper MAC Hypnotizing but without the frost
DS500 - A Deep Sooty Carbon Grey with Silver Glitter. This makes a great crease or liner color for a smokey eye.
M362 - WYSIWYG Hot Pink Matte Shadow. Not chalky at all. Very smooth ad blends nicely.
P395 - A Light Champagne Pearle. Can be sheer or built up for more frost.
P444 A Deeper version of P454 And yes. I still have 5 dupes of this color.
AMC 65 A Black with Silver Glitter. A great liner and the glitter does not get lost upon application, which is nice.
Here are swatches for both rows:
Do you NEED these? YES! Duh. Inglot is so full of awesome I have run out of adjectives to describe how awesome they are. In all seriousness. If I could only use one brand of shadows for the rest of my life, I would choose Inglot over everything else. In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse, I would grab my Inglot Palette over any other makeup to take with me. OK. Not really. I'd grab my shotgun and a machete and skip the makeup entirely. Come one, we're talking Zombie Apocalypse here. Let's be realistic. (ha!)
