Inglot Eyeshadow Swatches

Inglot Eyeshadows

Inglot Eyeshadows

I’ve swatched most of my Inglot eyeshadows for the blog before, but I thought it would be useful to collect all my swatches in to one post. And, there are a couple in here that I hadn’t swatched yet.

For reference, here are most of my Inglot eyeshadows, labeled with the color names:

Inglot Rainbows: 120, 117, 112, 116; Inglot Mattes: 249, 342, 363, 353; Inglot Pearls: 419, 433, 421, 423

Inglot Rainbows: 120, 117, 112, 116; Inglot Mattes: 249, 342, 363, 353;
Inglot Pearls: 419, 433, 421, 423

I also have two eyeshadows in my blush palette:

Inglot Eyeshadows  366, 382

Inglot Eyeshadows (used as blush) – 366, 382

And two matte colors hiding in another palette – I had forgotten about these when I originally took photographs for this post.

Inglot Eyeshadow: 377M, 388M

First, the rainbows. I found these to be disappointing as compared to Inglot’s other eyeshadows; read my full review here.

Then, the matte neutrals – I love these, all four are soft and silky.

The pearls – all four of them are lovely, silky and very pigmented. It’s not as hard to do a pearl eyeshadow well though.

The two matte brights bought to be used as blush don’t have the same perfect, buttery texture as the neutrals, but are still very nice.

The other two brights are similar; they’re good, but not great.

Sixteen eyeshadows! I didn’t realize I had that many Inglots, I’ve acquired them just a few at a time for the most part.

More Inglot Swatches! 421P & 423P

Inglot 421 Pearl, 423 Pearl 

As promised, here are more Inglot swatches!

I own several Inglot eyeshadows – swatched in this post – but all are matte.  These two eyeshadows are my first step in to the world of Inglot Pearl eyeshadows, and I am very impressed thus far.  I picked the shades fairly randomly; 421 Pearl (the square) just looked lovely, and 423 Pearl (the round) was on a deep sale (it was about $3) because the round eyeshadows are being discontinued.  Note that the same shade is available as a square pan.

Both eyeshadows are very silky and pigmented – truly excellent quality.  I love both shades, and despite some swatching and searching, I was unable to find anything similar to either that I already own; I’m always happy when that happens!

Inglot Soft Precision Eyeliner in 28 Review, Swatches, Photos

Inglot Soft Precision Eyeliner in 28

I certainly packed a lot of makeup for my trip to Las Vegas, but one item that I didn’t bring – and missed! – was colored eyeliner for an easy daytime look.  So, when I visited the Inglot store in Vegas, I bought one of Inglot’s Soft Precision Eyeliners despite having done no research at all. Luckily, I really like it!

The eyeliner is soft enough to apply easily, yet firm enough that it doesn’t lose it’s shape and need to be sharpened constantly.  The point is not particularly precise; it’s best for a medium or thick line, rather than a thin line.  It lasts all day on me with no smearing or smudging – note that I’ve only used it on my upper lash line, as that’s where I tend to wear colored liner.

The shade I bought is 28, and I would describe it as a blue/teal.  I really love the color.   The Soft Precision liners are normally $10 – very reasonable, I think.  And, Inglot is having a 20% off sale right now. Here’s information on the sale!

Due to the Inglot sale, I’ll be back later today with swatches of some eyeshadows I also bought at the Inglot store; they’re excluded from the sale, but could help you make it up to the $50 free ship minimum!

Red Blush Comparison, Swatches, Photos

Red Blush Swatches - MAC Bite of an Apple, La Femme Coral, Black Radiance Raspberry, Inglot 382M, La Femme Red

Red Blush Swatches

Today I have all my red blushes swatched for you! I have three blushes that I would consider true reds (Black Radiance Rasperry, Inglot 382M, and La Femme Red), and then above I’ve also swatched two close-to-red blushes for comparison purposes – the LE MAC Bite of An Apple, and La Femme Coral.  I also have individual swatches of the red blushes.

Black Radiance Raspberry

Of the red blushes, Black Radiance Raspberry is by far the most sheer; the left swatch below took several swipes to build up, and the blended swatch was very easy to do.  Although Raspberry looks very red in the pan, it applies a little bit berry and is quite cool toned.  Since it’s sheer, it would be a great first red blush for someone who didn’t want to deal with the pigmentation of starting with something like La Femme.

The Inglot I have, 382M, is actually an eyeshadow, but since it’s a matte red it works well as blush. The pigmentation is medium compared to the La Femme.  It’s not quite as blendable as I would like; you can see from the swatches that it’s a little bit patchy. It would be workable over powder and with some effort, but it’s definitely not easy to work with.

And finally, the pigmentation on La Femme Red is just crazy.

As you can see from the swatches, La Femme blushes are super, super pigmented, but also incredibly smooth.  It takes some effort to work with them – I explained the technique I use midway through this post –  but I find it totally worth it.

And once again, the comparison shot – the La Femme pigmentation really stands out!

Some Inglot Rainbow and Matte Eyeshadow Swatches, Review

Inglot Matte and Rainbow Eyeshadow

When I was at IMATs, I bought four of Inglot’s Rainbow eyeshadows.  Today, I have swatches of those four eyeshadows for you, along with the other four neutral Inglot eyeshadows I already own. (I also have a matte purple Inglot eyeshadow – 377 – which is in a different palette. You can see a swatch of it here.)  I store my Inglot eyeshadows in a large Z-Palette, because I prefer flip-top palettes to palettes with tops that completely remove, like Inglot’s palettes. I also dislike how difficult it is to remove eyeshadows from the Inglot palettes; I like rearranging my eyeshadow.

Here are the four neutral eyeshadows that I bought online last year:

Inglot Matte Eyeshadow – 349, 342, 363, 353

The quality of all four of these is exceptional. They are soft, smooth, pigmented, and blend easily.  I would absolutely recommend all four of these, and based on my experience with these – I would recommend any of Inglot’s single matte eyeshadows. These are 2.3g each (huge – MAC eyeshadows, by comparison, are 1.5g), and are currently $6 each on Inglot’s US website, though they were less when I bought them last year.

The rainbow eyeshadows are, unfortunately, not of the same quality as the single eyeshadows. They are the same dimensions as the single eyeshadows, but contain 2.5g of product. They sell for $8 on Inglot’s website; I am not sure, but I think I paid $7 a piece at IMATs.

Inglot 120R

120R, the grays, has so-so pigmentation and applied somewhat patchy.  The lightest color took several swipes to achieve the pigmentation you see here; the darkest color had the best pigmentation, but was the most uneven.

Inglot 117R

I had high hopes for 117R – I love the colors – but the pigmentation was a problem. As you can see, the lightest shade did not show up well at all.

Inglot 112R

112R was by far the best of the four rainbows that I bought; it applied smoothly and had very good pigmentation. While it was not as excellent as the Inglot single eyeshadows, it is absolutely a very good quality eyeshadow.

Inglot 116R

116R also had pigmentation problems.   The colors are light, but it’s possible for colors to be both light and pigmented (the single eyeshadow 353M is smooth, pigmented, and matches my skin closely so does not photograph well; in contrast, these just don’t apply very well).

Note that all swatches are with a clean, dry sponge-tip applicator on bare skin. I tried several of the rainbows over primer, and they (of course) showed up and performed better.
