Recently, I had the opportunity to shop the Inglot Toronto store with a bunch of other lovely Toronto beauty bloggers before it officially opened. The Inglot Toronto store is right downtown Toronto in Yonge Dundas square, across from the Eaton Centre. I had read/heard a lot about Inglot products from other beauty bloggers, but this was my first opportunity actually play with and swatch the products.
Inglot sells all of it’s powder products: eyeshadows, blushes, face powders etc, as part of what they call their ‘Freedom System.’ With this system, you buy the pans of products individually, as well as the palette to put them in. The palettes come in different configurations, so you can put different kinds of products in one palette. The palettes are magnetized, so the pans fit into the palettes securely, so much so it’s very difficult to get them out once you put them in.
I picked up a 10 eyeshadow pans as well as 10 pan eyeshadow palette, and a 4 face powders and the corresponding 4 pan face palette. When you buy the products, the pans come in individually vacuumed sealed pouches and the palettes are boxed. You can them assemble them at home as you chose.
I had some specific colour themes in mind when I went into the store, I really wanted to play with some purplely shades, and these are the 10 I ended up with. Inglot’s eyeshadows come in a variety of formulas, all the shadows I picked up are either pearl, matte or shine. Pearl shadows have a little bit of shine, while shine shadows are quite shiny.
On first test, these shadows are quite pigmented and swatch beautifully. They are powdery to use, and do have fall out, which makes them quite messy to use. I find the Shine shadows are the worst culprits of the bunch. I’ll definitely do a follow up post, once I’ve played around with them more.
Along with the eyeshadows and palette, I picked up 2 blushes and 2 face powders and a corresponding palette. I picked up a two of their HD Sculpting Powders, one in a matte white shade and a darker powder for contouring. I also picked up a blush/illuminator combo and a blush.
As with the eyeshadows, these powders are all incredibly pigmented and soft. I find that there’s less fallout with the powders than their are with the eyeshadows. On first swatch, the sculpting powder in 504 looks very similar to Hoola powder from Benefit. The standout for me so far has been the Fusion Blush and Illuminator combo, where the bottom portion is a regular blush, while the top portion has an illuminating shine to it.
So there you have it! My Inglot Toronto Haul, I will definitely do a follow up post for both the eyeshadows and blushes once I’ve really had a chance to play around with them.
Have you tried anything from Inglot? What are your favourites?
