Back in Warsaw my friend was on the hunt for a new highlighter. When we walked into Inglot she came across these four gorgeous highlight powders and it didn’t take long until I fell in love with them as well. After a couple of minutes I decided I was going to get one, but when the makeup artist asked me if I wanted to buy one or two that one highlighter I intended on buying turned into two highlighters. Anyway, I’ve been trying them out for quite some time and today I felt like I was ready to talk about them. So, if you’re interested in finding out more about these two gorgeous highlighters, make sure you continue reading!
Let’s start off with the packaging. The Inglot Freedom System products all come with just the pan and you have to buy the palette separately. There are a couple of different palettes available. They have different sizes but they also have a packaging that comes with a mirror on the inside rather than a glass lid. I personally prefer the look of these magnetics palettes which is why I bought one of those. This palette fits two powders that come in rectangular pans but I believe you can also fit four square pans in it.
Overall I think the packaging looks pretty professional and sleek. It’s definitely not the prettiest packaging in the entire world, but it does look good and it’s handy. I also really like that you can stack these palettes on top of each other because they are magnetic!
Inglot Freedom System HD Highlighters – €15 (Total price 2 highlighters + palette €40)
Like I mentioned before I intended on just buying one highlighter, the lighter one to be exact. My friend was getting the darker one and because she has darker skin than me I thought if it would look perfect on her it would probably be too dark for me. However, after I swatched it and saw how gorgeous it looked I realised that wasn’t the case at all and therefore I decided to get both. By the way, Inglot products don’t have names just numbers. The highlighter on the left is number 153 and the lighter one on the right hand side is number 154.
Having said that let’s jump into the colours. Let’s start off with number 153, the one on the left hand side. This is the one that I didn’t intend on getting because usually peachy or warmer toned highlighters just don’t look right on me. However, this one does actually look very pretty. It’s a warmer toned highlighter with a peachy gold tone to it. It’s not too bronzy or dark which gives a bit of a sun kissed look to the skin.
The other one, number 154 is a lot lighter and less warm. It doesn’t have a ton of peach in it at all, however I do think it has some warm tones into it, as well as some cool tones. I think that number 154 is a very regular everyday highlight colour. It’s quite light and therefore maybe not that perfect for somewhat darker skin tones, but of course there are no rules in makeup so you can wear whatever you want. For my very pale skin tone it is the perfect shade which is why I bought it.
Moving on to the quality of the product. According to Ingot these are the ultimate satin highlighters that add a subtle glow to the skin and create the perfect highlighting effect in every type of lighting. It’s supposed to be ideal for everyday wear but also for filming in HD. They also claim that their highlight shades range from cool to warm tones so there will be a match in the collection for everyone. Lastly they say that thanks to the silky smooth formula the highlighters are easy to apply and perfect for everybody, even people with dry skin.
Overall Inglot makes it sound like these highlighters are absolutely amazing, and in my opinion they are. I really appreciate that Inglot doesn’t go overboard with the claims. They don’t claim things that are just flat out outrageous and they aren’t telling you a lie. What they claim is the truth and that’s exactly how all brands should do it. Props for that Inglot!
These highlighters have a pretty great texture. It’s not the best texture I’ve ever seen, but considering that these aren’t extremely expensive I think the texture is great. The powders are very smooth, the colour pay off is amazing and they blend really easily. The only slight downside is the fact that they are a tiny bit powdery in the pan. This doesn’t transfer onto the skin, but it does cause the pan to look a little messy.
Pigmentation wise both highlighters are incredible. I have to say that the lighter shade does come across very icy and also quite pink on the swatch, but in real life it’s a lot more neutral toned and not pinky at all. I don’t know why it looks like that on the picture. Anyway, the swatches look good. Thanks to a recent experience with a highlighter that looked amazing on the swatch but a lot softer on the cheeks I wasn’t completely convinced about the intensity just by looking at the swatches, but after putting it on my face I knew these highlighters were amazing. They aren’t as crazy glowy on the skin as they look on the swatches, but that’s not the look I’m going for anyway so that’s not a problem. If you do like that look you can definitely build up the intensity, but if you want it to look a little more natural these are great as well.
Both highlighters aren’t just very pretty and pigmented, they also last a long amount of time. I’ve worn these to a full day of work and they survived it. That’s just one example, but I do think that shows how well these stay. Definitely not all highlighters are capable of doing that. Just keep that in mind!
Overall I just really like these two Inglot Freedom System HD Highlighters. Both shades are really pretty and perfect for everyday wear. I actually really like mixing them together to get the best of both worlds. The quality of the powders is amazing too and that makes them even more amazing. They have a very nice texture, the pigmentation is amazing and they stay in place all day long. What else could you possibly want?
And that’s basically everything for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and be sure to let me know which highlighters are your current favourites and let me know what you think of the brand Inglot!
