10 Must-Have Inglot Eyeshadows – Neutrals

10 Must-Have Inglot Eyeshadows – Neutrals

I think one of the more frequently asked questions I get is about what eyeshadows to start off with from Inglot–this is a pretty impossible task! Put simply, Inglot has a ton of eyeshadows that perform well. And then, there’s the very fact that it really depends on what kind of palette you’re looking at. Neutrals? Brights? A mix? Cool-toned? Warm-toned? How large of a palette?

What neutral Inglot eyeshadows would you recommend?

Chanel Mystery Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Mystery Glossimer Lipgloss
Chanel Mystery Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Mystery Glossimer Lipgloss ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “fresh rosewood.” It’s a soft pink-peach with a creamy finish. MAC Persistent Peach is similar but a smidgen brighter. MAC So Vain is darker, pinker. Dior Pink Veil is pinker, shimmery. YSL Pure Watermelon is more orange. Benefit Spiked Punch is similar but shimmery. Chanel Caprice is a bit pinker and shimmery.

Mystery is non-sticky, lightweight, and very comfortable to wear. ¬†The consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, and for a creamy¬†gloss¬† it settles very little into the lip lines–certainly not noticeable from a regular viewing distance. ¬†It also applied rather evenly. ¬†When I tested it out, it lasted for four hours, which was good. ¬†This gloss has a high-shine finish that gives lips a fuller look (just an illusion). ¬†It’s a your-lips-but-better kind of shade with better coverage.

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lip Pencils

MAC Beet Lip Pencil
MAC Beet Lip Pencil

Three Classic Lip Liners for Your Many Reds

MAC Marilyn Monroe Lip Pencils ($16.50 for 0.05 oz.) sees the promotion of three permanent shades: Beet (vivid reddish-pink), Cherry (vivid bright bluish-red), and Redd (clearly red). They come in glossy black boxes and have a glossy black exterior on the actual pencil, as compared to the typical matte black packaging for both the box and pencil. MAC is charging more for this difference–these three shades can be purchased for $15.00 each normally, because of the glossy packaging, MAC is charging $16.50 each for these.

  • Beet is a pinky-red with a matte finish. It would pair well with Love Goddess.
  • Cherry is a barely blue-toned medium-dark red with a matte finish. It could work with Charmed, I’m Sure or Deeply Adored.
  • Redd is an orange-red with a matte finish. It would pair well with Scarlet Ibis.

The Lip Pencil formula is supposed to be used for “shaping, lining, or filling in the lip.” The texture is described as smooth and creamy, while the pencil itself is long-lasting. ¬†I wouldn’t describe them as creamy, though they’re not totally stiff and rough or anything, but they’re just somewhat smooth and creamy. The drier my lips get, the harder I find these are to apply and to apply smoothly/evenly. ¬†All three shades are plenty pigmented, and you can get even color coverage. ¬†I like these as a standby lip liner, as they do wear long and well (six hours or longer) and work well underneath lipsticks to prolong the wear (one of these easily adds an extra hour or two).

Keep in mind, online retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Bloomingdale’s will also launch the collection online. These retailers typically launch close in time to the in-store release date (October 4th).

MAC Fascinating + Smolder Eye Kohls

MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl

Old Standbys Get a New Outfit

MAC Marilyn Monroe Eye Kohls ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) sees the promotion of two permanent shades: Fascinating (intense matte white) and Smolder (intense black). If you purchase from the collection, the pencils you’ll receive come in a glossy black box and are packaged in a glossy black pencil, compared to the matte black packaging of the permanent shades. They cost exactly the same, and while online is listing these as 0.05 oz. (or 1.45g), my pencils say 0.048 oz. (or 1.36g), making them the same size as the permanent ones as well.

  • Fascinating is a bright white with a matte finish. It had nice pigmentation in a single pass. Dolce & Gabbana white is similar but a bit brighter, not as cool-toned. MAC Pure White is also similar but more of a neutral white.
  • Smolder is a dark black with a near-matte finish. It had good color payoff in one stroke. It’s a basic black eyeliner, so it has many dupes available.

The Eye Kohl formula is supposed to be a soft pencil eyeliner that delivers rich color along with a smooth finish. ¬†Smolder was really creamy and glided on easily, while¬†Fascinating was a bit drier, but it still applied evenly and didn’t pull or tug on the lash line. ¬†Smolder remains smudge-able for awhile and eventually sets, but I did see some additional smudging after wearing it for eight hours on my lower lash line.

Keep in mind, online retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Bloomingdale’s will also launch the collection online. These retailers typically launch close in time to the in-store release date (October 4th).
