Inglot Swatches – Some new shadows

I picked up some more Inglot eye shadows a while ago. I feel like buying Inglot is sort of a crap shoot. I love the pigmentation of the shadows, but the colors! It can be so hard to tell what the color is actually like. It doesn’t matter how many swatches I look at (and some don’t have swatches), I’m still never 100% sure I’ll like a color.


All these colors were swatched on Meow’s Light Primer.

Row 1 = 350 (matte) – 7 (amc shine) – 43 (amc shine) – 345 (matte)
Row 2 = 420 (pearl) – 434 (pearl) – 338 (matte) – 340 (matte)
Row 3 = 375 (matte) – 321 (matte)

Color descriptions:
350 – slightly grey cool beige
7 – light gold with slight orange leaning
43 – bronze with a hint of gold
345 – seafoam green
420 – grey with a hint of mauve-purple
434 – rich grey with a hint of brown
338 – deep teal
340 – blackened teal
375 – red-based purple
321 – blackened navy

Really in this group of Inglot shadows, I wasn’t wholly disappointed with any of the colors. I was disappointed with 338 not being more blue-cornflower, but it’s still a gorgeous color.

I absolutely positively fell in love with 350. For me, it’s a slightly deeper than skintone cool greyed beige shade. It’s perfect for blending out other colors in the upper crease. I’m not sure what else it will be good for, but I’m open to suggestions. I less than three it.

I took a risk with 420 and 434. I thought I might like them. turns out I love them. I need to wear them together because I think they’ll really work with my eye color.

7 is extremely pretty, but I expected slightly more of a rose gold, so was a bit disappointed with it. I do like it with 43 though. They pair up nicely.

I like 345. 375 wasn’t quite as red-eggplant as I thought it would be.

I love 340 and 321. Both are awesome and they just blend so easily! It seems like all of Inglot’s mattes are dreamy to blend. Creating the look below was easy because of how well the shadows blend together.


For this look: TFSI 350 – upper crease/browbone, 338 – lower crease, 321 – outer crease, 340 – outer v, 345 – inner lid, Tarina Tarantino Pure Opal (MAC Fix +) – lid, Silk Naturals Spurs – browbone, Kat Von D blue liner – lower lid, Too Faced Perfect Peacock liner – lower lash line and outer upper lash line, 375 – to define brows, Cover Girl 24 hour Black Gold Mascara

The Inglot shades I currently have are:
AMC Shine
36, 28, 35, 14, 29, 24, 7, 43

Double Sparkle (DS)
495, 474, 477, 483, 488, 494, 493, 498, 467

AMC Eye Shadow
59, 57, 70, 74, 58, 67

Matte
376, 384, 372, 350, 338, 340, 321, 345, 375, 388, 362, 351, 352

Pearl
420, 434, 439, 441, 399

Inglot eye shadows, if you buy the freedom system shadows, are $5 each. (for 2.7 g/0.09 US OZ). I personally think this is a great deal. I just wish they did skin swatches like you see with Illamasqua. I love that :)
What are your favorite Inglot eye shadows? Do you like their mattes?

Are there any Inglot shades you think I should check out? If so, please tell me which shades/finish!

      Holy wow, you’re not kidding about those being a great deal. I thought they were so much more expensive than that! You have a great set there, those colours are all so very *you*!

        Thanks Amber :)

      I haven’t been to Inglot in forev! Maybe since 2010. Where did you pick these up? Don’t tell me there’s an Inglot in Central FL!!

      • Phyrra

        I purchased them online. I’ve still never been to an Inglot store.

      For the most part I do love my Inglot shadows, but it was a pain in the arse to order the 2 10-pans that I have now. I had to search swatches for hours and hours because the site pictures are terrible and when I found one I liked a swatch of I would look up more and find that it looked way different on every site I checked. Luckily, though, I only wound up with one that I thought was a total dud. I thought 56AMC was going to look like MAC’s Sumptuous Olive, but it really just looks like baby potty :(

      • Phyrra

        Yeah, it can be hard. That’s why I do love to swatch what I have.

        • http://cassykinsvstheworld.blogspot.com/ Cassy

          I swatched all mine, too. The two entries I made still get a lot of reads, so I hope I’m helping someone out there!

    • http://chrisellesy.com/blog/ Chriselle Sy

      338 is my favorite. It sucks these are hard to get from here!

      • Phyrra

        Can you order them online?

    • http://projectswatch.blogspot.com/ Emi.

      Wow, I LOVE 420. Must buy.

      I’m going to be in Las Vegas over the summer, and I’m definitely going to go to the Inglot store. It’s many months away and I’m already making a shopping list.

      • Phyrra

        Yay! I’d love to see what you get :)

    • Cathryn

      As always, thank you so much for the swatches. Especially with a brand like Inglot, these come in so handy. I still haven’t ordered anything from them, but they’re on my “to try” list. I can’t stand how the site has craptastic eyeshadow images AND no color descriptions! MAC is also bad with images (maybe even worse), but at least they have color descriptions.

      From your swatches, I’m digging 420, 434, and 345. 345 is a colour I’ve been looking for in a while. I have Illamasqua’s cream pigment in “Bedaub”, which is close, but disappears from my eyelids way too quickly :/ Now I mostly use it as a colour-correcting concealer.

      • Phyrra

        You’re welcome Cathryn!

      350 and 420 both look really nice.

      • Phyrra

        Glad you like them Cin!

    • Melody

      338 O_O. Lovely, lovely teal! It looks great on you. I hope that Inglot gets more boutiques around the US, I love the idea of browsing all of their shades and snapping them into a freedom system palette. It would be like the store where you can one big bag of all kinds of candies by the scoop…except not as bad for my health.

      • Phyrra

        Hehe! Yep!

    • http://wickedrenaissancegirl.blogspot.com Helga

      Great color selection, that 375 says I should get it.

      By the way, Google reader is being crazy and this entry shows all your images as stolen content from Phyrra.

      • lisa b

        i have been getting the same thing lately. i remember reading about a week ago that someone stole some of her content so she figured out a way to block them from doing that. unfortunately, i think its also blocking readers/subscribers from seeing her content at the same time.
        phyrra, i love your blog but it’s extremely frustrating to read when all i can see is “i’m a content thief!!”
        Even when i go directly on your website i’m still seeing the image. Is there anything we can do to get around it? i don’t want to “unsubscribe” but there must be a way to fix it.
        thanks and have a great weekend! LB

          Hi! There are a couple of things to try. What is the url you are using to view my blog in your reader? Are you inside or outside of the usa? If you are inside, try clearing your browser cache. If that doesn’t work, try another browser and go directly to the site. That is how we fixed it for one reader. Please let me know. I’ll be happy to help you troubleshoot.

          • lisa b

            Hi Phyrra!
            I’m inside the US. This time i clicked on “phyrra” and i was able to get in no problem!! thank you and have a great weekend :)

        Hi, if you’re outside of the usa, please let me know the exact url you’re using to read. If you’re inside the usa, try clearing your browser cache. If that doesn’t work, try another browser. Please let me know if this helps.

      I seriously need to buy some Inglot. I just hate that you have to spend $100 to get free shipping on their site and I hate paying shipping costs!

      • Phyrra

        I know what you mean! Sometimes, it’s worth it though :)

    • Tina

      Gosh, I own like 90 eye shadow colors by them, and I agree that it is hard to tell if you are going to like the color. You can be in the store and swatch away, but there is no way you can use 90 different colors in the store to even get a feel for what you think you might like on your eyes. I bought a lot of golds and neutrals for one palette, and I find some of them are too warm to really look great on me. Something that is neutral or leans cooler generally looks better on me. So, I find that I don’t even wear some of the colors and I have a few go to’s. However, I felt like I was in a frenzy when I bought the colors because there wasn’t a store close to me at the time. I have blushes as well, and some are just way too pigmented for me to apply nicely. I like the colors, but. Last May, I bought 80 eyeshadows, 4 blushes, a ton of lipsticks, lipglosses, a few eyeliners. Then, I went back in December and bought 2 lipsticks, 2 blushes, and 10 eyeliners as well as the breathable nailpolish. I just had my second pedicure with the breathable nailpolish yesterday. I must say that my toenails didn’t look as torn up as they normally do when the nailpolish was removed — you know, the yellowed flaking almost kind of look? I bought the base coat and top coat as well. The colors I chose are lovely, but it looked like the polish didn’t apply evenly as the gal was applying it. She looked like she had to kind of work with it to get a uniform coating on my toes. The end result looks nice, but I’m not sure I could make it look that good on my own. Anyway, if I had a good camera and could take good pictures in the light, I would swatch for you to post. I just can’t seem to get the hang of taking good pictures where you can actually see the details :(.

      • Phyrra

        Aww, I’m glad you like them Tina. sometimes it can be hard to get good photos. Daylight can help a lot.

    • Lucy Patrick

      Those are some wonderful shades. I can’t wait till I have them in my collections. It should be a great deal. Can you tell me where can I get the best deal on these?

      Thanks for sharing.

      -Lucy

      • Phyrra

        I just buy directly from Inglot’s website.

      I think I need 338! Thanks for the great swatches. :)

      • Phyrra

        You’re welcome Jennifae :)

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      I really like the look of 338, 345 and 375 :)

      • Phyrra

        Yay!

    • http://olgiepolgie.blogspot.com Olgie

      I love all of these colours! I love Inglot, but their numbering system bugs me. I also find the sheer number of colours they offer a little intimidating sometimes.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah, that’s why I like to see swatches. So many colors, so many finishes, it can be intimidating!
