My first Inglot haul!

Last Monday an Inglot store opened in the Athens Metro Mall!

On Tuesday, I had my little list ready and I entered the store pretty confident that I wouldn't get lost between the various colors, finishes etc. Well, it didn't go quite as planned, mainly because I misplaced my list and couldn't find it (...) as well as due to fatigue I was a bit spaced out.

So, instead of buying stuff in random, I decided to keep it sweet and short and with no further ado, here it is!

First thing I wanted to try was a brush and since I lacked of a large fluffy eyeshadow brush, I decided to get the 6SS, the hair is squirrel substitute. It's very soft and fluffy and so far I really like it.

Here you can see it in comparison to a Mac 226 (on the left) and a Mac 217 (on the right).

My main reason for visiting Inglot was the eyeshadows and I knew I wanted a Freedom System palette, so no guessing here.

When I started swatching the eyeshadows though, well, it was kind of overwhelming. I tried to remember if I had anything similar in my stash, how I would combine it, I tried to find shades that looked "unique" blah blah blah. It was not working.

So, I decided to get the three shades that at the moment stood out to me and that next time I entered Inglot I had better have the list with me ( lol!)

Pearl 399 on top left, Pearl 420 on top right, AMC Shine 17 on bottom left

Here I added the Mac Swimming eyeshadow on the far right, for comparison.

Here's the back of the palette, I adhered the labels from the boxes for future reference.

The bottom line: does it worth it?

Well, the answer is probably yes and I'll tell you why (surprise!):

  • Price: €6 per eyeshadow and €9 for the palette. I think it's certainly a winning point but not by itself
  • Ease of use: once you put them in the palette, there's nooo way back! Unless you find a heavy duty magnet, you can't reposition them in the palette. I asked the MUA if they provided one, no they didn't. Bummer..Should I try "Εγέρθητω!" ? (Current greek joke)
  • Color selection (in store): large but not vast, I think Mac has a wider range
  • Longevity: I didn't test them to extremes (lol!) but I got a decent work day, they'll certainly last longer over a primer
  • Pigmentation: oh baby, you're sooo good
  • Application: like a dream, just don't overblend, you'll have to reapply
  • Consistency: butterrrr, for your lids, not your breakfast (jeezzzz, I'm sooo funny!)
  • Finishes: Pearl ( <3 For Ever). There are a few more, and I hear that the mattes are very good too
  • Will I purchase more? Rhetorical question
The fun part is that when I got home and found the list I discovered that two of the three eyeshadows I actually purchased were included in my list!

So that's my first visit to an Inglot store (thank god I didn't start browsing lip products, nail polishes etc or I would still be there!)

    1. Temtalia has a few posts on Inglot eyeshadows, just type Inglot in the search field. As for square or round, if you want to keep in the same palette eyeshadows and lipsticks and brow shades, round is the answer!
