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.

    WOW. I don’t actually know if there’s ever been a time when I looked at a shadow and thought “EWWW” but well, there it is. The lightest one is the worst, but GAAAAHHH it’s like matte booger color! And to see it on your beautiful eyes is like heresy! Quick! Wash it off and apply some pretty shadow!

    How disappointing… I expect better from Inglot.

  3. Oh I love these colors… I think they’d look great on me (lol, it feels so bad to say that about myself :-))

    I have this and all the other rainbow colors from Inglot and I haven’t had any issues with mine. I love this color too because it is so unusual.

  5. I really like this one! I tend to have a soft spot for colors like this.
