Today I’m going to share with you all of the Inglot eyeshadows! I recently shared how I made a z-palette to house them and I’ve been using them all a lot, to the point where I’m pretty confident in saying that they’re my favourite eyeshadow formula. I wanted to share what I had because I have some really gorgeous shades that I think a lot of people would enjoy. These shadows just don’t get talked about enough and I want people to love them as much as I do. So without further ado, on to the swatches!
I own 34 shadows with only one double and that’s because my Mum gave me her trio and there was a double. I’ve separated them into neutrals, purples/pinks and blues/greens, to the best of my ability. We’ll start off with the neutral palette swatches.
Please excuse the indent in my arm from my Pandora. I took these before I had to get ready and the mark hadn’t worn away just yet haha. This palette is my most favourite palette and if I’d change anything, it’d be to swap out one of the gold colours for a medium brown. So in this palette, my favourites are the shimmery white (453), the white gold (30), the foiled taupe (154), and the foiled copper (12). All of the shadows have great pigmentation and I use a lot of them daily. The foiled shadows are my most favourite though, for sure.
Now on to my ‘green’ palette. This houses some of my most precious shades and my one double (423). The shimmering periwinkle (28) is my most favourite eyeshadow and it broke when I was creating a look and I repressed it. The pan looks really awful and the pigmentation isn’t the same but that might be because it’s hardpan at the moment and it may improve with use. Still waiting to see. I used the silver (151) for the first time over my whole lid yesterday and I took a picture for Instagram. I really adore it and I wish I wore silver more to get the most out of this perfectly formulated shadow. I honestly really like all of these shadows but I haven’t used them as much as my neutrals palette.
Lastly, my purple and pink palette. My camera decided to change temperature settings when I took this and made my whole arm look purple so I’ve tried to edit it to make it look kinda normal again but it wasn’t so successful because the shades aren’t exactly what you’d see when you swatch them in person. I really love the frosty lilac (38) and the pink rainbow shadow. I would have liked it more had it been matte but this one actually has a surprisingly beautiful finish. It’s almost duochrome and with some fix+ I think it would look pretty epic on the eye. The purple next to the rainbow shadow (22) is a glittery shadow with a matte base and unfortunately the matte base is all you can see in this photo and looks a bit patchy in the swatch but I promise that it’s really gorgeous in person.
My only real critique of the Inglot eyeshadows is the number system. It still doesn’t make sense to me. It’s like Whose Line is it Anyway, where everything is made up and the points don’t matter. It makes it hard for me to remember the shades that I’ve already bought, which is why I’ve never bought more because I don’t remember what I own and I’m very likely to swatch something in store and be like ‘OOH’ and then come home and realise I had it. I almost did that with 31, which is meant to be a dupe for Too Faced Marzipan, which is one of my favourite lid shades. It doesn’t look like it in my swatch because of the angle the photo was take but if I ever do a dupes post, I’ll definitely be sure to include it 🙂
I hope that you enjoyed the post as much as I enjoyed creating it!
