Yes ladies, I have joined the band wagon!
I had been to the Inglot store a few times but have never been interested in creating a palette, but I have been on an eye shadow kick, so off to Times Square I went!
If you have never been to Inglot, it's just an absolute explosion of color every where
I believe one of the favoring aspects to the store is their "Freedom System"
If you buy a palette from other brands, you always have that one color you just never use or just dislike in general, but the other shades are nice, right?
Not here, you choose everything. How many items you want, the colors, mix and match blushes, with shadows, and a custom lip palette.
A variable make up candy store!
I walked out quite happily with my own 5 pan custom palette. The staff was extremely helpful, non pushy, and had nice non critical opinions.
The palette comes with magnetic closures that are very secure. I have extremely little doubts these would ever really fall off, and they're actually quite hard to pull off if you are in a rush, so I recommend you slide.
The palette's have a nice weight to them. Surprisingly they are heavier than I had anticipated, as I originally created this for travel, but the magnets must be heavy!
Yes, all the neon, flashy blue, green, purple sparkle shades were amazing
(Their blue selection was outstanding) but neutrals for me!
A downer for me, (and this is personal) is their naming system.
The names are not cute nor catchy, their sound more mechanic and seem similar to
Also, the sales assistant created my palette for me in the store which was a huge mistake on my part. All the names of the shades were on the back, and I tried to sneakily save the packaging in some sort of order but she threw them out. Ack.
These are not very easy to remove once in the palette, but a safety pin and some patience yielded me with my shade names, all for YOU! Lol.

Matte 330, AMC Shine 21, Pearl 421, Pearl 419, Matte 348
I walked in there knowing what I wanted. A matte highlight similar to MAC's Brule. A matte dark grey, similar to MC's Print to use as a liner. A fun green for nights out, a shimmy n*de color, and a medium brown.
Surprisingly I did not find a shimmering n*de/champagne color I liked. They either leaned gray on my skin, or too gold, so two shimmering browns are fine with me.
The Inglot shadows have different finishes. Matte is obvious. AMC Shine is more glittery shimmer, and Pearls remind me of MAC's Veluxe Pearl finishes.
AMC Shine 21
The shades are all incredibly pigmented, super smooth, huge pans, minimal to no fall out for my shades, and most importantly, I am hugely satisfied with my palette. The pearl I think, may be my favorite finish. I think the price is quite fair for the pan size, the pick as you go mentality is quite fun, and the finished products is something unique and only for you made by you.
All in all, a superb experience and end product.
Have you tried Inglot? Do you have any shade recommendations?
