Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit an Inglot standalone store. There are only a few in the US so I was very excited to check out the store. For some of you who are not familiar with Inglot they are an International cosmetic company that originated in Poland. In many cases they are compared to MAC in the makeup world, however, they are significantly cheaper than MAC. Ingot is more famously known for their customizable palettes called the Freedom System. They have several configurations of palettes to fit your needs. The palettes are magnetized and extremely durable. Check out the possibilities:
One notable thing about Inglot is that the eyeshadows are twice the size of MAC Shadows. A single MAC shadow is 1.5g ($11.50) where an Inglot square shadow is 2.7g ($5). You really do get more bang for your buck with Inglot. In addition, the pigmentation and color payoff is amazing. You barely have to rub your brush on the shadow to get intense color. The only downfall is that Inglot is not as easily accessible as MAC. They are starting to branch out and adding counters in select Macy’s locations, however, there are only 9 stores in the US. They do have a website that you can order from. I know how difficult it is to purchase makeup online, however, if you decide to it’s probably best you locate some swatches on blogs to have a better idea of what you will get. I definitely recommend giving Inglot a try. Here are some of the goodies I picked up. I am also attaching pictures of the palette I bought last November so that you can see the swatches.
I originally purchased the 4 pan blush palette as I was told that each of the blush pans can fit two shadows-they gave me the wrong palette in my bag 🙁
Eyeshadow swatches with the shadow names
Blush swatch – in the color 25
Trio eyeshadow palette with blush
Swatches – The rainbow shadows are $7, it’s like getting 3 shadows in one!
I’ve also purchased a nail polish last year and really like it. Has anyone else tried any Inglot products and what are your thoughts?http://www.inglotusa.com/Freedom_System-Palettes.html
