While I was in NYC, my list of things to see included the Inglot store in Times Square (I’m not your typical tourist). Oh, am I glad I went – twice!
At first look, the store seems okay, but in my mind I expected more of a MAC-like branding. While there are no gorgeous visuals to guide you, there are a massive amount of gorgeous products to make up for it.
An employee (Andrew, I think?) talked me through the Freedom System, where you can create your own customized palette. When I found out how reasonable the prices were on them ($25 for 5 round pans of your choice), I started building away! There are several different configurations, but the eye shadows I wanted seemed to only be available in round so that’s what I went for.
I LOVE the packaging of these! They come in a magnetic palette so you don’t have to worry about losing your lid (haha) and it makes it so easy to stack them.
The color payoff on the shadows is incredible. The textures are nice and soft, but there’s hardly any fallout. I also found that even the matte shadows blend easily.
Here is the palette I made. Full disclosure: I actually made two, but sadly forgot to write down the numbers on the second one .
Please note that the DS (double sparkle) 498 and DS 458 are MUCH more glittery and beautiful in person. It’s just very bright here today!
They had so many beautiful nail polishes, but this one caught my eye. It is a blackened olive with gold/olive glitter. I would compare the consistency of the polish to Revlon or China Glaze; they’re not as thick as OPI. Which can be a very good thing. The photo above is with two coats of Inglot 851.
Finally, I purchased this lip gloss in number 546. It is so pretty and iridescent in the tube and goes on very shiny and pretty much clear. I find that this shade looks best over warm purple and coral tones.
Great News: I just discovered that you can now purchase Inglot Cosmetics online! Someone hide my purse!
