Amazing eyeshadows come at all price points, from Wet n Wild to Marc Jacobs (and pricier), however some of my favourite eyeshadow formulas come from Inglot. Founded by cosmetic scientist Wojciech Inglot in Poland several decades ago, it is most famous for it Freedom System (a build-your-own-palette format of shopping). It is now a global brand and, thankfully for us Ontarians, there is a new store in downtown Toronto! It’s located at 19 Dundas Square. My products however were purchased at its locations in Lisbon, Portugal and New Delhi, India.
33: Gorgeous aqua blue with a gold duochrome. Similar to Mac’s Steamy
402: Mauve-y brown; great for a one-shadow look. Dupe for Mac’s Satin Taupe.
407: Muted gold-orange shadow. On the eye it comes off quite peachy. Similar to Mac’s Melon.
418: Medium evergreen. Reminds me of Christmas!
419: Olive-khaki green. Looks great on brown eyes and is perfect for a one-shadow look. Similar to Mac’s Sumptuous Olive.
434: Muted medium purple with lilac undertones.
444: Neutral silver-grey. Not too cool as to look ashy on olive skin.
Matte & Sparkle Eyeshadows
340: Dark teal matte.
364: Pale lime yellow. Not very pigmented (this swatch is two swipes); slightly chalky. Good as a base or as an alternative to white.
471: Dirty cool olive matte with sparkles. Again, two swipes. Not the most interesting of colours.
482: True dark purple matte with silver sparkles.
Freedom-System Palette (thoughts)
- very durable and good for travel/regular wear and tear
- strong magnets keep the shadows in place
- semi transparent lid to see the shadows beneath
- little heavier than a normal palette
- needs a strong heavy-duty magnet to remove the shadows. The ones on the lid are definitely not strong enough!
Hope this review was helpful! I’ll get around to reviewing my Inglot lipsticks soon, so keep a watch out for that.
Have you ever tried Inglot, and if so, what are your favourite products/colours?
