I've had my Inglot eyeshadows for a while now (well, it feels like a while haha) and I've had a pretty good opportunity to use them all and see which ones I really like and which ones not so much. It's really hard to purchase them online, even seeing swatches, because you don't know how they're going to blend, what the sparkle (if it contains any) is going to look like, are you going to get a lot of fallout?, is it going to apply evenly? So I decided I would do a recommendations post.
Inglot eyeshadows come in a variety of finishes. When I purchased, I bought primarily matte finishes, a few pearl finishes, a couple AMC (which means "Advanced Makeup Component"), and one DS (which means "Double Sparkle") they also have AMC Shine but I did not buy any of those (if anyone who has them wants to leave their feelings about them in a comment, that's cool with me!).
I LOVE the mattes. They feel so nice, they blend SOOO well, their pigmentation is INCREDIBLE!
I also really enjoy the pearls. Again, they blend really well and their pigmentation is great.
I do not like the AMC's very much at all. The colors are matte and beautiful but they have sparkles in them. I find them a lot more difficult to work with than the others. The sparkles don't really fall down onto my face but I don't really see them on my eyes either haha so who knows where they go.
And my one DS eyeshadow is just eh. It's a matte finish with a lot of fine glitter in it. I don't love it. I get the most fallout from this one. I really don't get much from any of the others. You know how when you work with a powder that's super finely milled, you dust it on and it makes this little dust cloud that just floats away? That's kinda what happens with these (except this DS one).
So onto the pictures:
These are the ones I would purchase again, without a doubt. I don't even know if I can really pick favorites among these (I mean besides 372, 361, 395... and 371 and 392 and 378, 363, 351, 419, 384, 407, 376, and 352, 393, 388, 414, and 366... haha).
These I would maybe buy again
|I bought 382 thinking it would be red but it's way too pink. And the other colors are nice but they're not that special.|
And these I would pass on. I love the colors of them but I just don't like working with them
|DS 496 looks better here than it does on the eyes, it applies a lot more sheer|
So I hope that was helpful to somebody out there. As it's really hard to buy eyeshadows online without actually being able to work with them. And fingers crossed that blogger has itself all figured out now!
