I recently had the opportunity to take a trip to Orlando, which hosts some of the best makeup stores around, including . . . INGLOT! They recently opened a counter in Macy’s at the Mall of Millenia and I had anxiously been waiting to go!
I had purchased three Inglot eyeshadows from their website a few months back, but hesitated on buying more, simply because I prefer to see new eyeshadows in person before making buying decisions. I’m sure you’re the same way. 😉 It’s for that very reason I couldn’t wait to share them with you and hopefully show you a little bit better what the first round looks like.
You may wonder how Inglot eyeshadows compare to more of the well-known brands like MAC and I am here to tell you they are equal to, if not better than, MAC eyeshadows in terms of quality, pigmentation, lasting power and ease of application. And let’s not forget that at $6 USD per eyeshadow, that’s HALF the price of a MAC eyeshadow, not to mention the Inglot pans are twice the size!
The only negative thing I have to say about Inglot has nothing to do with their eyeshadows, rather the Freedom palette itself. It’s a high quality palette, very well made, but it makes moving eyeshadows around absolutely impossible. There’s no way to grasp the edges of the eyeshadows to pull them out! I’ve had to be creative, using all sorts of things to pry the eyeshadows out – bobby pins, needles, knives! LOL! And if you slip, then you end up dinging the eyeshadow. *sigh* I dinged the one pictured above but PhotoShop took care of the mark for me 😉
So I don’t think I’ll be purchasing another Freedom System palette; instead I’ll stick with one of the Z palettes for my future Inglot eyeshadows.
