Inglot #122R Rainbow Eyeshadow
Inglot #122R Rainbow Eyeshadow

Inglot #122R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a trio of warm, yellow-toned browns that range from a dirty orange to terracotta to medium-dark brown.  The quality of this trio was quite good across the board, with the bottom shade being really impressive.  All three shades had nice pigmentation, soft textures, and none of them were too powdery.  I had no trouble applying or blending out the colors on the lid, and they do work well together.  I might opt for a lighter inner lid color, just to provide more contrast.  When I wore these three shades together, they lasted seven and a half hours well with some minor fading becoming apparent after eight and a half hours.

#122R Top is a warm, dirty, yellowed tangerine with orange and brown tones and a light satin sparkle. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft without being too powdery. Maybelline Fierce & Tangy is a cream product, more orange, warmer. MAC Chessa is darker. MAC Juiced is slightly yellower. Dior Aurora #1 is more shimmery. Chanel Tigerlily is similar. OCC Mimosa is slightly warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

#122R Middle is a medium, terracotta brown with soft sparkle and warm, reddish undertones. It had good pigmentatio and applied smoothly and evenly. MAC Indie Spirit is darker, browner. MAC Body Conscious is not quite as warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

#122R Bottom is medium-dark brown with subtle, warm, red undertones and a soft sparkle. The color payoff was lovely, and the texture was soft, finely-milled but not powdery. NARS Surabaya #1 is slightly darker. MAC Brown Script is less shimmery. MAC Beautyburst is less shimmery. Guerlain Les Fauves #1 is more shimmery. bareMinerals Frisson is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow
Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a trio of warm, earthy greens that ranges from light to medium to dark. They sit together in the same pan, and they are equal in size/height. All three eyeshadows have the Double Sparkle finish, which means there is a light dusting of fine shimmer in them–but the shimmer was nearly undetectable applied.  When I tested the wear, all three shades lasted well for a full eight hours and only had some very minor fading apparent after nine hours of wear.

#121R Top is a chartreuse–a mix of yellow and green–with a soft satin finish and warm undertones. It had a soft texture with slight powderiness (one of the trade-offs of having such a soft, easy-to-blend texture is that they’re usually a bit on the powdery side). It had good color payoff and was true-to-pan. CoverGirl Lime Light is more shimmery. Aveda Papyrus is darker. Make Up For Ever #304 is cooler, more shimmery. NARS Rated R #1 is slightly warmer, darker. MAC Bitter is warmer. Inglot #343 is brighter. See comparison swatches.

#121R Middle is a medium-dark, olive green with soft, brown undertones and a dusting of khaki shimmer. It only had so-so color payoff when I initially swatched it on the skin, but it was buildable, so I was able to get more opaque color on the lid. Clinique Whopping Willow is darker, warmer, cream product. Urban Decay Jealous #1 is slightly darker. Urban Decay Mildew is more shimmery. MAC Spread the Wealth is a cream product. Guerlain Coup de Foudre is a bit darker. See comparison swatches.

#121R Bottom is a dark, khaki brown with subtle warm undertones and a dusting of green and muted bronze shimmer. It was a little on the dry side, so it didn’t swatch well and looked like it was going to have low color payoff. On the lid, it can be packed on, but I did have some trouble blending the color out–it was not as effortless as many Inglot eyeshadows can be. theBalm Lead Zeppelin is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Olive is warmer, more shimmery. Giorgio Armani #14 is more shimmery, lighter. Giorgio Armani #24 is darker. bareMinerals Speaker Box is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

The top shade was the best of the three, while the other two were somewhat disappointing as they were a bit drier and didn't have great color payoff. The middle shade was better on the lid, but the bottom shade was still somewhat stiff to work with.

5 Silver Eyeshadows for the Holidays

My favorite way to wear silver during the holidays is on the lash line, actually. It can add a lot of brightness to a look! I like the line the lower lash line with a rich black eyeliner, then pat on silver eyeshadow on top. I also love silvers with blues–very wintry!

  1. Giorgoi Armani #12 — bright, metallic silver
  2. Estee Lauder Cyber Silver — dark, metallic silver-gray
  3. Buxom Chihuahua — metallic, medium silver
  4. Guerlain Les Aquas — bright, light silver
  5. Inglot #448 — faded silver with a metallic finish

What’s your favorite holiday silver eyeshadow?
