A while back I asked a beauty expert which eye shadow brand did she recommend for a new MUA (makeup artist) to carry in her kit. She, without hesitation, recommended INGLOT. She told me the price is right, and the pigmentation can’t be beat. Then she told me that you can customize your very own palette.
Fast forward about 5 months, I am in NYC with my cousin and husband, walking along Times Square, and low and behold, we literally stumble upon an INGLOT store. This trip was not designed at all around makeup, so I promised I would only be in the store a very short time.
The beauty expert was right. The Freedom System, is the name of the palettes that you can create yourself. The individual eyeshadows are only $6 each! I got the quad palette, which was $10, making my quad total purchase $34. But wait, there’s more. They were having a black Friday sale so I saved 20% that day. I was very happy with my purchase!!
What did I get? I felt like I was rushing. I wanted to try all of the colors, but I didn’t want to have my family waiting for me forever, either. (This is the reason I prefer to do makeup runs on my own). I grabbed 4 colors, swatched them on my hands, liked them, bought them, and was out the door in under 30 minutes.
This brand goes by numbers only. I got:
- 361, matte pink
- AMC 50, shimmery, deeper pink (kind of wine-ish)
- 325, matte dark royal purple
- AMC 48, shimmery, mid pink, lots of glitter
I love the casing. It is thick, and has a top and bottom that attach by a strong magnet. Very innovative.
