As I mentioned yesterday, I’m going through a lot of permanent eyeshadows from various brands so that we can add more swatches to the Swatch Gallery. Here are eleven Urban Decay eyeshadows (with no real rhyme or reason), and going through all of the pots yesterday made me wish Urban Decay would sell their permanent range in refills. It would be so much more convenient and take up less space!
Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) are what they’re most well-known for, given the buzz I’ve seen in the past. I’m missing a few that I expect will be in this range (specifically, one pink and two oranges), so I left blank spots for them that way I do not have to rearrange everything when I eventually buy them.
These are swatches only! I am in the process of re-swatching a ton of products, because the Swatch Gallery is designed so you can compare individual products, so all of the swatches have to be done in a way that each swatch can be photographed and shown individually. I’m going through various brands, so there is some variety as I journey through it all, but here are fourteen MAC eyeshadow swatches, along with my descriptions of the shades and any notes on performance if it was below average. Unless noted otherwise, shades are part of the permanent range.
To wrap up our look at Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.), we have several grays and whites. I’m not sure if there is a black eyeshadow with a pearl finish, but it could be in pot-form only or else not available online–seems hard to believe there isn’t any, though! These were all easy to work; soft, smooth and application was seamless. The color payoff is excellent without being excessive. Lighter shades like #448 and 447 go on a lot lighter than they look in the pan, though.
Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) were seemingly easy to organize by color, but after swatching, there were a few odd ones out that didn’t quite seem to go with traditional browns or greens. Consequently, I give you earth tones. I will finish up this palette with grays and whites in the next Inglot post!
