Review:INGLOT eyeshadows + teeny weeny rant







Posted by Picasa

Another super late review, I just these sexy mamas while I was in NYC last summer.

INGLOT was initially known for their nail polish but as the company's popularity meter exploded a couple of months ago. The brand has became the new GO-TO for most make-up lovers and artists especially because of their eyeshadow palettes. The company has a "freedom system" which allows you build your own eyeshadow, blush and lipstick palettes. Personally I have nothing bad to say about about the eyeshadows I got, I only got the shadows with shimmer because thats what my kit lacked and so far I love them ( My clients love them too).

The pigmentation is awesome ladies, what you see is what you get, plus you have the option of a 10,5,4,3,2 palette and a little birdie told me that a 20 palette will soon be introduced (AMEN). The palettes have magnets on the edge of them, making it easy for us to stack the palettes (A Makeup Artists dream) making them easy to carry around. If you ask me inglot is what MAC use to be when they first started. The prices of the products are AWESOME,Packaging is SOLID. The only complaint I have is the labelling  (why is it at the bottom?).As you can see I have numbered mine because its a tad annoying lifting the pan everytime I wanted to know the shadow number. One more thing is that some of the shadows fallout a lot, making application a tad messy but I fixed that problem by wetting my brush with a bit of mixing medium (this makes the shadow a bit wet but it dries and is still easily blendable).

Unfortunately Inglot has limited stores (NO ONLINE SHOPPING AS WELL #sadface)  but their three major stores are in LONDON, NEW YORK and LA...I will put the link to their site below for the people that want to check out their stuff.I'm still going to visit their store in London (Maybe during the easter break) so if you have any question about ingot please leave a comment and I will get back to you #asap.

So if you live in the UK, you have definitely heard about the bleeding tax increase. So recently there was news floating in the air about ingot increasing their prices but no one was sure when,well recently it was announced the the price increase was only for UK residents #gasps..WHY WHY WHY WHY us, at first I was like O HELL NAH but then again tax is now 20% so the only way to survive this blasted economy is to increase their prices. Anyway even with the price increase ingot is still cheaper and better quality than a lot of the high end brands (I will still buy from them regardless of the increase)

Question of the day:Would you still purchase stuff from a company if there is a price increase?

  2. I would only buy products with a price increase if they were one of my trusted brands and they were exceptional quality. I.e if McDonalds rose prices and I was looking for a cheap snack I wouldn't go there. (I snack on their pound menu when I'm out all day haha) < couldn't think of a better example. Lol xx
