Inglot Eye Shadow Review, Shades 369 & 24

Hey Guys!
I am one of the lucky few in the UK who has an Inglot store 10 minutes away from where I live, and I plan on making the most of it!
I was out shopping for new jeans the other day and mistakenly stumbled into Inglot, what a shame. My lovely boyfriend treated me to 2 new shadows and I think I definitely picked 2 of the best! But I'll let you be the judge of that...
So these are my latest additions...Left is shade 369 and on the right shade 24.
For the quality of the products, I still can't get over the price. It's so cheap!
As a comparison - 1 Inglot eye shadow pan which is 2.3g/0.08 US OZ is £4.50
1 Mac eye shadow pan which is 1.5g/0.05 US OZ is £10!
So not only is the quality equally as good if not better, you get more product than Mac and its less than half the price!
This lovely looking pan is Shade 369.
It's so hard to describe this colour, it instantly caught my eye.
I guess it's in between pale blue and a pastel purple, reminds me of bluebells!
It has a matte finish and being such a pastel shade it's a bit chalky but no where near as bad as what I was expecting, not like Sleek Makeup's pastels! Great Pigmentation.
And my other purchase, Shade 24.
Inglot describe it as an AMC Shine, which to me seems like the Veluxe Pearl Finish by Mac.
It's an aqua shade with a gorgeous frost finish.
The tester in store looked completely different though, it looked more like a matte white with an aqua shimmer/frost...I actually went back to check I was given the right one! (No offence to the lovely ladies working there, but when I went to Inglot in Westfield's I was given ALL the wrong shades, so glad I checked them whilst I was still there!)
I bought this because I thought it would look great as an inner corner highlight so I'm now waiting to try it out. It swatches the same as the one in store, maybe an improved formula?
Swatch time! This photo is taken with flash and under a natural sunlight bulb.
Left swatches are over NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk, Right is without a base.
This is the same, without flash, under the natural sunlight bulb.
The frost in shade 24 stands out so much better without the sticky base, will definitely just be using my primer with this one!
So that's that, now I've photographed and swatched them I can't wait to play around and see what looks I can come up with! I was so close to buying a gorgeous canary yellow instead of shade 369, I'm glad I spotted it last minute, and at least I know what my next purchase will be!


  1. These look so pretty and i'm super jealous you lie near it haha. I've been looking at the shades online but it's so hard i think without seeing them in person x

    1. I'm so lucky I have one close :) and I know what you mean, the website doesnt show them very well! Temptalia's blog has a lot of Inglot shades reviewed, might be worth looking at :) At least with Inglot, no matter what one you order you know the quality is going to be good! x x

  2. Luuucky!! I wish I was near an Inglot store! I can only get their products on line! :P I love the shades :)
    Lucy :D

    1. I know, I was so happy when I found the shop! haha Definitely purchase some things online, they have some good sales too! x

  3. I'm excited to see what you come up with too! :) but, I know that whatever it is, it's going to be goooorgeous! :)


    1. Well my new look is up, Check it out - I hope you like it! x x

  4. I bought a freedom palette on holiday last year, and I can't bring myself to use it!
    It's ridiculous.
    this post was the kick up the arse I needed!

  5. I'm not the biggest fans of blue colours but these shades are truly gorgeous, xoxo.

    1. I'm not either, but this shade was just so different and lovely, not like a Pat from Eastenders blue! x
