As a beauty blogger my most extensive collection unsurprisingly is my makeup collection. Obviously it’s not possible to put it all in one post so I have chosen my Inglot Freedom Eyeshadow Palettes as I have quite a collection of those at this stage.
Since my trip to Inglot during the week I now have 5 of the 10 pan palettes and 3 of the five pan palettes – a total of 65 shadows! I’ve moved the shadows around a bit so I’m happy with how they are at the moment… At least until I inevitably buy more!
I got my first 5 pan palette when I was training as a makeup artist. It was part of the kit we were provided with and consisted of only purple eyeshadows. I loved the texture of the shadows but found the colour range a little limiting. At the time I had often wandered in and out of the Liffey Valley store but found the range a little overwhelming and had never really understood how the process worked. Finally getting to try the products meant that I had the push I needed to go instore and talk to the staff. The result of an awesome product at a good price sold in stores with helpful staff is the extensive collection I have now of all sorts of Inglot products!
As you can see there is some repetition in that I have two of the matte black (#63). This is part of the problem with the fact that the shadows are numbered and not given names. I tend to have themes to my palettes so that if I want to bring them somewhere I have the essentials of what I need to complete a look. The 5 pan palettes retail for €36 each.
As you can see the rainbow palettes have three shades of the same colour in each pan (2.5g). These palettes are slightly more expensive than the palettes of the regular eyeshadows. A ten pan of the regular shadows is €68 but the ten pan of the rainbow shadows is €88. The top palette is a shimmer palette that was released at Christmas and the bottom palette is entirely matte.
This bottom palette is my favourite and the one that I tend to bring when I go anywhere. The mattes work well for everyday looks and the two highlighters are perfect to brighten up the inner tear duct or brow bone.
I have to say, Inglot shadows are amazing and now that I have used them they would be my first choice over any other brand. Considering I used to be a massive Urban Decay fan I feel this is high praise for Inglot. They are much more affordable and I love that you can customise the palette to whatever you want.
Do you have any Inglot eyeshadows? What is your favourite brand? If you would like to see a more indepth post on any of my palettes please let me know!
