Ever since Inglot opened up a store in Eindhoven I’ve been a huge fan of the Inglot eyeshadows. They are rich, pigmented, silky, blendable and they are as intense as possible. I’ve loved every single one that I’ve tried. So, when I went to Poland, where Inglot originates from and where Inglot is a bit more affordable, I decided to go all out and create a big palette with 20 eyeshadows. Today I’m going to review the badboy. If you’re interested in finding out if these eyeshadows meet my expectations, make sure you continue reading!
The Inglot Freedom System Palettes come in many different shapes and sized. The thing they all have in common is that they’re made out of a reasonably heavy black material with a matte glass magnetic lid that is covered in the word ‘Inglot’. Overall I really like the look of the packaging. I think it looks simple but very professional. It’s pretty much exactly what I like.
Like I said the palettes come in many different shapes and sizes. The one I chose fits exactly 20 eyeshadows (or other similar shaped Inglot products).
Which shadows you put in the palette is totally up to you. There is a big table with tons of eyeshadows which you can choose from and when you have chosen all of them the staff will collect them for you and you can arrange all of them in the palette you bought with it.
I decided to choose lots of neutral shades, since that is what I wear the most. Instead of just going for shimmery/metallic shades, which is what I usually do, I decided to buy a few matte shadows too. I decided not to choose between cool and warm toned shadows but create a mixture and aside from all of the neutral tones I popped in one or two slightly more colourful shadows to just spice it up a little.
So, without rambling on and on about the overall look of the palette, let’s just get into the shadows and discuss them one by one. (I’m not a 100% sure all of the numbers are correct, but I believe most of them are).
328 – This first shade is one of my favourites. It’s a wheat toned warm matte highlighting shade. It’s slightly warm but it’s not yellow and that’s what I like about it. I also think that quality wise it’s a great shadow, it’s silky, rich and very pigmented.
352 – Next to that is a more white/pinky toned highlighting shade. I wanted to have one of each so I could decide what I wanted depending on whether I feel like wearing something warm or cool toned and this one is perfect for that. Quality wise it’s identical to the 328 shadow and colour wise I think it’s perfect for highlighting underneath the brow bone.
397 – Next up is the first shimmery eyeshadow I’m discussing. It’s a warm toned champagne colour that’s perfect for all over the eyelid as well for in the centre of the eyelid or in the inner corner. It’s very rich and intense and it’s super blendable.
156 – This shade is one of my favourites. It’s a bit different from the rest because it has quite a purply tone to it and that’s why I like it so much. It’s the perfect shade for those days you want your eyelook to be a bit more rosy and romantic than usual.
402 – The last shade from the first row is another shimmery one. I actually have two of this shade in the palette (due to an accident) but I do use it an awful lot. It’s a nice shimmery brown shade that isn’t too cool or too warm. It has a hint of green to it but aside from that it’s pretty neutral.
309 – The first shade of the second row is another light brown shade. This is perfect as a transition colour in the crease but it could be used for many other purposes as well. It’s rich, it’s pigmented, it’s buildable and it’s super easy to blend.
357 – This next shade is also a matte one. It’s quite a bit darker than 309 but it’s also perfect to use as a transition shade. Aside from that I also like using it to define my crease when I’m going for a rather natural look and every now and then I like using it as an eyebrow powder too.
153 – Next up is my favourite and most used shade out of the palette. This is a rather cool toned shimmery champagne shade. This is perfect for all over the lid and for in the centre of the lid as well as for in the inner corners. It’s shimmery, it brightens up your complexion and it’s incredibly pigmented.
399 – Next to that is another shimmery shade. This is a medium to dark brown shade that could be used all over the eyes as well as in the crease area. It’s not too dark and intense but it’s dark enough for an everyday eye look.
423 – The last shade of the second row is one of my favourites. It’s a dark shimmery brown shade with a purple undertone to it. I love using colours like that to make the look extra special or just add a tiny pop of colour.
329 – The third row starts off with a extremely dark matte brown shade. This is perfect for darkening up the look and also for creating smokey eyes. It’s super intense and rich and incredibly pigmented. It’s one of my favourite matte shades in this palette!
422 – That gorgeous matte shade is followed by a shimmery brown one. This shade has a bit of a greenish touch to it which I really like. It’s brown and it has a neutral undertone, but thanks to the greenish shimmer it has a really pretty green glow in certain lighting.
409 – The next shade is pretty much exactly 422 but without the green shimmer. This is more neutral and also perfect for really accentuating that crease or the outter corner. I really like it.
421 – The second last colour of the third row is another shimmery brown shade. This one has a pretty warm undertone, almost reddish. Even though I do prefer neutral toned brown shades I did want a warm toned one in my palette, just in case. Just like all other eyeshadows it’s super rich and intense and it’s a dream to work with.
452 – The last shadow of the third row is this gorgeous burgundy shades. If you have brown eyes a shade like this is essential in any palette, especially during the colder months of the year.
355 – Onto the last row. The first shade of the last row is another matte highlighting shade. It’s pretty similar to the first shade of the palette but it’s a bit more yellowy than that one.
160 – Next to that you’ll find a really pretty shimmery lilac shade. It’s not as neutral as the rest of the palette but if you combine it with some of the other shades you can definitely use it and create a very wearable look.
402 – Then we have number 402 again, the duplicate one.
378 – And that is followed by another really dark brown shade. This one is a bit more cool/taupe toned than the other dark brown shadow but it has just as much pigment as the other one and it’s just as amazing.
391 – The last colour in this palette is a matte black shade. On the swatch it seems rather grey/blueish, but in person it’s definitely a black shade. It’s matte, intense and perfect for lining the eyes or really adding some darkness to the look.
Overall I think the shadows are really pretty and incredibly pigmented and nice to work with. Quality wise I think these are one of the best you can get, especially in this price range, and I’m glad I got this many of them. If you ever find yourself at an Inglot store make sure to go in and choose some shadows yourself, ’cause I’m sure you won’t regret that!
