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!
Like many black liquid eyeliners, it does have a tendency to photograph brown in swatches, though it does look like a medium black in real life. It’s not an ultra deep black, but it’s not a soft black either; it’s a happy medium of the two. It applies smoothly, gliding on with ease, and the color is distributed evenly without dragging. There’s no patchiness in the color, so you won’t have to go back over the same area twice. When swatched on my arm, it did bleed around the edges, but I did not notice any bleeding until I was cropping the swatch photograph. I didn’t spot any bleeding eyeliner when I tested it on my eyelid, but it does make me want to note that it might do so if you have more wrinkly eyelids.
