Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #337, 390, 350, 348, 376, 349, 339, 387, 324, 391, 318, 373 (Neutrals, Grays, Blacks)


Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #4

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #337, 390, 350, 348, 376, 349, 339, 387, 324, 391, 318, 373 (Neutrals, Grays, Blacks)

This is the last post on Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.). This palette contains both mattes and several double sparkle eyeshadows, but I’m only reviewing the matte eyeshadows. I’m not going to review any of the double sparkle eyeshadows at this time (if/when I do, it will be when I have the majority of the available shades to review, rather than a smattering).

  • 337 is a soft, medium brown with red undertones and a matte finish.
  • 390 is a brownish beige with a matte finish.
  • 350 is a grayish cast beige with a matte finish. This looks much yellower in the pan, but it doesn’t swatch that way at all.
  • 376 is a sooty blackened-brown with a gray cast and matte finish.
  • 349 is a purple-tinged gray with a matte finish–though it almost has a little sheen.
  • 339 is a soft, grayish brown, kind of taupe-like, with a matte finish.
  • 387 is a muted, purple-tinged gray with a matte finish. It’s a lighter version of #349.
  • 324 is a blue-based, medium gray with a matte finish.
  • 391 is a dark black with a matte finish.
  • 318 is a bright white with a matte finish.
  • 373 is a bright white with a matte finish. #318 and #373 are very, very similar. If I had to pick out a difference, #318 seems slightly cooler toned.

This set of matte eyeshadows worked well overall.  None of them applied poorly, and they all had decent color payoff.  There are a few shades that are rather similar, though, within all of the neutral/browns, so these are certainly not all necessary.  Both #318 and #373 were nicely pigmented without being chalky; they are stark, for sure, against my skin tone, but they didn’t have that chalky feel that whites sometimes have.  #337 swatched a little softer than anticipated.

I’m really MORE curious to know what kind of quantity was there/not there.   Sometimes we wonder just how many of something (e.g. Marine Life, Stereo Rose) were actually in stock, because it feels like it’s not many – but it’s hard to capture just how large the MAC audience is.  I think this might be a good chance for us to have some data to extrapolate and guess at it.

Based on the current poll results, it’s obvious there wasn’t enough stock, and perhaps around 1,000 in total.  I think that since it soft launched the night before that mostly those who have played the LE game before and who were waiting for an announcement probably snagged those, and then a mixture of MAC’s mailing list and Temptalia readers when it officially launched on the 21st.  We must also recognize that this is only a sample, more of a snapshot, as not everyone who bought (or didn’t) will participate in the poll.

Like I’ve said before, it doesn’t bother me one bit if you didn’t want to buy it! One reader said that a Canadian customer service representative said “hundreds” of orders went through. Definitely feels like the stock set aside for Canada was underestimated quite a bit! (And for those who wonder, “Why 4+?” I know that many readers were doing CPs for others!)  I don’t know if MAC will restock or bring it back someday – your guess is as good as mine.

Feel free to elaborate on your answer in the comment section! 🙂
