I know, I know...I am flat out obsessed with Inglot Cosmetics. I received my recent haul today & purchased some of the other items they offer. Don't get me wrong, the Freedom system is amazing, so affordable & really nice for those who like to custom order their palettes. I just wanted to try some of their other products to see if they're worth branching out for.
First, their lipstick. I only purchased one shade because I wanted to see just how accurate their online swatches are. I purchased #414, a matte lipstick that looked like a soft baby pink on the website. While the lipstick is pretty matte (I would compare it to a MAC satin lipstick) the colour was just awful. In the tube it looks pretty nice, but on my lips....YUUUUCK. It came out as a powdery-white lilac that was not flattering on me in the least. It was pretty difficult to photograph it on my lips, so I will try again when I'm able to take pictures in natural light. I do want to try their cream lipsticks, though, in hopes that I won't be so disappointed.
Next up, their pigments. These are listed on their website as AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow, AMC standing for 'Advanced Makeup Components' which I am still researching further into. These are 2 g/0.07 ounces for $14.00 USD. Old MAC pigments are 7.5 g/.26 ounces & new MAC pigments are 4.5g/0.15 ounces...so when you calculate it out, Inglots pigments are rather pricey.
MMMMM. These are so fluffy! Hahah, fluffy, easy to apply & SO vibrant! These are each two swipes of pigment over NYX Milk eye pencil. That blue...wow. I'm working on Inglot dupes next & I'm pretty sure if you've been searching for MAC RebelRock Blue, you've found your match!
I also purchased some eyeshadows that aren't available in the Freedom system. These were $12 USD a piece & are 2.5 g/ 0.09 ounces. MAC regular eyeshadows are 1.5 g/0.05 ounces, MAC mineralized eyeshadows are 2.2 g/0.07 ounces & the MAC Mega Metal eyeshadows are 3.4 g/0.11 ounces. Inglot's full sized eyeshadow are an awesome deal when you calculate out the difference. I've noticed on the website, though, that not all the Freedom colours are listed as full eyeshadows. I sifted through the full sized shadows & chose a few that aren't available through the Freedom system.
I also ordered a full AMC eyeshadow without realizing I already owned it :P Woops! Eyeshadow is #59, I didn't swatch it because I already have before.
& Of course, I ordered more Freedom shadows as well as a 5 pan. :D
We all know I love these by now, no review necessary, hahah!
I hope you enjoyed this post, it took forever to photograph! I've got one more haul on it's way to me (eyeliners & of course, more Freedom goodies) and after that I will get started on a duplicates post! I'm going to go through ALL my makeup & compare as much as I can.
I'll also be doing a giveaway this Friday, so be sure to check out my blog for that! :D
K, passing out now ;D!
