Inglot Freedom System Palettes review : I think everyone at this stage has heard of Inglot Cosmetics and their amazing Freedom System Palettes, that can be customized to include eyeshadows, lipsticks, concealers, face powder, blush, brow powder and wax. You can purchase circle or square palettes that can contain 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20 or 40 eyeshadows of your choice. The palettes themselves are extremely durable hard plastic with a frosted lid that closes with super strong magnets. A few months ago I opted to buy two 10 pan square eyeshadow palettes and i’m beyond happy with them.
All eyeshadow swatches without a base.
Matte: A flat finish with no sparkle, shimmer or shine.
Pearl: Pearly sheen with some satiny frost but does not contain any bits of glitter.
Double Sparkle (DS): A matte base with flecks of sparkle throughout.
AMC: A satin base with flecks of sparkle but less glittery than DS finishes.
AMC Shine: A pearly frost finish that is much shinier than Pearl finishes.
AMC stands for ‘Advanced Makeup Components’ and all Inglots AMC products are supposed to be long wearing, waterproof and sweat proof and also more pigmented than their other products.
Pigmentation, Application & Wear :
They are all extremely pigmented eyeshadows that have a buttery soft texture and a little product goes a long way. They apply smoothly and evenly and blend like a dream with little effort. I find you can get a small amount of fallout but this can easily be fixed by tapping off the brush before applying. Inglot Matte eyeshadows are some of the best texture I have ever used and are the most pigmented. I use all my eyeshadows over MAC Painterly Paint Pot and I find they stay true to colour all day with no creasing.
Price & Availability:
I paid €55 for each 10 pan eyeshadow palette including the 10 eyeshadows. So including the palette I paid €5.50 per eyeshadow which is amazing value. Inglot square eyeshadows contains 2.7g compared to MAC 1.5g= 1.2g of extra product and MAC eyeshadows costing €15 (Pot) and €11.50 (Refill Pan).
You can only purchase Inglot in stores in Ireland but in the UK they can be purchased in stores and online.
Final Thoughts about Inglot Freedom System Palettes:
I think Inglot eyeshadows are much better quality than most of my MAC eyeshadows and definitely a better price. The only thing that I don’t like about Inglot products is that they have numbers instead of names which can be a bit annoying at times. Trying to remember the numbers of the eyeshadows you have on when someone asks is a lot harder than naming them. Overall i‘m beyond happy with my Inglot eyeshadow palettes and I will definitely be purchasing some more soon.
Anyone have any other Inglot product recommendations?
