Lucky Old Me #3

Following on from my recent wins from Aurora in the Sunlight and Hazel, I was highly surprised to get a message from the fabulous Rachel from A Pretty Obsession informing me that I had won her Inglot Giveaway! They do say luck comes in threes. Within a week I got a lovely little package through the door...


These are my first eye shadows from Inglot and I was so excited to see them. I love the idea of the freedom palettes, so you can fill them with colours of your choice and chop and change shadows as you please. The palette itself is extremely sturdy, and the magnets that keep the lid in place are very strong.


The lid can be easily twisted or pulled off to reveal the square pan eye shadows beneath...


I think the shadows themselves are a good size, and the overall look and feel of the palette is fantastic.


Excuse the bumps in the left hand shadow; I was testing out the ease of removal from the palette, using a hair grip, and I managed to put these dents in it, d'oh! Rachel sent me two beautiful shades - Matte 360 and Pearl 423. These are wonderfully pigmented and lovely to apply. They will be great for both day and night looks, as they can be blended out for day time, or used for a dark, smoky eye at night time.


The back of the square pan tells you exactly what the shade is, on a large, clear sticker. I thought that these Inglot shadows were easier to work with, and had more pigmentation, than my MAC eye shadows. Also, their freedom palettes vary from 2 pan to 20 pan, so you can have several and reshuffle your palettes as and when you need! They are very affordable too, and I think that I may stick with Inglot eye shadows and palettes in the future. So a huge thank you to Rachel, for introducing me to the wonderful world of Inglot!


Here is a day time look I wore last weekend using both eyes shadows. I also used a Milani shadow for the highlight.


Have you tried Inglot before? I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more of their products in the future!
