Hey everyone! I know my posting has been a little strange lately but with medical school and finals coming up everything has been super crazy in my life (excuses, excuses, I know). Recently I reached 600 followers on bloglovin and I wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. My medical school class is only 100 people so imagining 6 times that many reading my blog is just insane!!!
If you don't know, Inglot is a Polish brand, so what better place to buy it than Poland!! (If you guys ever take a vacation here, which I would highly recommend because it is very cheap...buy your Inglot products here. I bought a loose powder and looked on the US website and it was $22, I paid 36PLN which is less than $10...so less than 8 british pounds?)
I've been experimenting with a lot of their products (and I love them ALL) and wanted to share today my eyeshadow palette with you guys and swatches. Longest intro in the history of intros out of the way....let's get into it!
*As a side note they also have the Freedom System for face, lips, and even brow products but I haven't tried those yet
I decided to go with a 10 pan eyeshadow palette and have written the colors on the eyeshadows (I use Picmonkey). I did the top row as a warm neutral brown toned row, and the bottom row as a grey.black smokier row. I know the first four colors look almost exactly the same in the top row but I can assure you they couldn't be more different. (you'll see in the swatches below)
This is the palette in different lighting to try and show the true colors of it (I also realizex as I uploaded this I took the picture of it upside down from the first one but I'm sure you already figured that out. Oops!)
The swatches are as true to color as I could get in my lighting, I either have bright white light from reflection off the snow outside of yellow lights from the artificial lighting in my room. But there is no way to show the true beauty of these shadows. I would say these are just as good if not better than MAC eyeshadows. They sure are a better price (each one worked out to be around $4 with the currency exchange) and you get almost twice the amount of product.
There is a little fallout from them if you don't tap your brush off but the shadows themselves are almost more dusty(?) The texture to me is more similar to the L'Oreal Infallible shadows which are pressed pigments and you have to go in with a lighter hand or a packing brush; lately I have been the BIGGEST fan of using one color with a fluffy brush all across the lid for a sheerer wash of color and it gives you almost that glossy look (no eyeliner, and mascara: BEAUTIFUL)
Almost all of these shadows I can wear by themselves on the lid and lower lash line and they all look GORGEOUS (if you wanted to know how I do my shadow...and so I don't have to say I like wearing this color by itself in every description) The first two swatches in this picture above were so hard to get true to color but the last three swatches are almost dead on (except the very last but I'll explain in a second)
111- this is a light golden champagne with shimmer, I would compare it to something like a light MAC Patina (but I don't own Patina so I can't show you a side by side comparison)
118- is a more amber toned version of the previous shadow. Even though it is shimmery it works as a nice shade to blend things together or put in your crease.
154- this is a cooler toned brown similiar to YDK by Urban Decay (if you have any of the Naked palettes you've seen it) but is just one of the best colors. I prefer this to YDK since it has less chunky glitter and fallout (this swatch is pretty accurate to the actual color)
114- if you're a fan of Amber Lights by MAC then this shadow is one for you. It's like Amber Lights's cousin. Slightly more orange toned but just as beautiful (and more pigmented)
421- no swatch can show the true beauty of this little baby. This is the best red-brown toned eyeshadow I have ever seen. Oh lordy. I know now in the winter everyone is a fan of cranberry eyeshadows (including me) and this is the perfect pairing for them. It is this satin smooth red brown color that blends so easily and wonderfully there aren't words to describe (even though that's what I'm supposed to be doing). It's safe to say this is my favorite darker brown shadow
