The Inglot Freedom System

I've heard a lot of positivity about Inglot eyeshadows over the past year or so, but never actually thought about creating one myself. That is, until I read Sophie's post here and convinced myself otherwise. After much Googling I settled on the quad with four shadows - 326, 360, 409 and 423. I did find it a bit difficult selecting what I wanted, though. All of the eyeshadows are numbered, not named, and there is such a huge selection it's a bit overwhelming. 

I settled on two shades from the matte formula, and two from the pearl. 326 is a dark, cool toned brown with a slight burgundy undertone. It has a matte finish. 409 is a bronze-brown with a pearl finish. 360 is a greyed taupe-brown with a matte finish. 423 is a burgundy brown with a pearl finish.

I can't tell you all enough just how pigmented these eyeshadows are. They are honestly the best I've ever tried, knocking MAC and NARS out of the park. Even the mattes perform beautifully, and I was actually taken aback when first swatched them.

Any one of the shades I chose create a gorgeous smokey eye and they all look great together. They come in at £4.50 each, with the quad priced at £6.00. Not bad at all when you look at the prices of Urban Decay or MAC's create your own system. 

I will most definitely be creating more of these palettes in the future. I can't fault the pigmentation, they're easy to blend, long wearing and the palette itself is magnetic and therefore very sturdy. You can find the entire shade range here.


L-R - 326, 409, 360, 423

This is an extremely pretty palette, you picked out a lovely combination of colours. I've thought about creating one of these too, like yourself I found the site quite overwhelming

Mattes that have pigment?!? I'm in. The palette you put together is gorgeous. I love purples because I have light green eyes. Thanks!

I just made one of these palettes on holiday, and I selected 423 as well! I totally agree with you, the quality of Inglot eye shadows is fantastic.

Great post! I've been looking for a review of these with swatches everywhere! Bookmarked this post so that I can look at it when I decide to order some of their shadows :) ! xx

I've wanted to give these a go for a while but never known whether they'd really be worth the hype…sounds like they are though! The packaging doesn't look good though, especially for travelling.

Love the shades you picked.

The packaging's actually a lot sturdier than it looks! The magnets are super powerful, always scared I'll trap my finger closing it haha x

Claire said...

Wow these look amazing, I've thought about ordering a quad but like you said there are so many colours it's very intimating, plus the websites pretty difficult to navigate :(

R Day said...

Wow. I mean, WOW. These shadows are stunning! Thanks for the great post! I do agree with the post above, though, that the Inglot website feels a bit overwhelming... I guess I am just going to have to try and find some in person!

I know exactly what you mean about their website. I wish they had more stores or a better laid out online shop, would make it so much easier.

These are gorgeous colours, love grey taupe-brown of 360

I love Inglot, I made my own palette back at Christmas, but I'm so jealous of the colours you picked!


Paula Kemp said...

I have had Inglot on my wish list for ages, especially as their prices are so good compared to MAC.

I have been wanting to go to there store at Westfield to have a little play and get my own freedom palette, after reading this review, I will go there sooner rather than later.
