Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #1

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #382, 362, 319, 359, 356 (Reds & Pinks)

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.

  • 382 is a medium-dark blue-based red with a matte finish.  This shade seems comparable to Make Up For Ever #158 (slightly brighter) and #99 (bluer undertones).
  • 362 is a bright, just-darker-than bubblegum pink with a matte finish.
  • 319 is a pale cotton candy pink with blue undertones and a matte finish.
  • 359 is a muted rosy beige with a matte finish.
  • 356 is a lightened rose-tinted beige with a matte finish.

These are really soft mattes; they have a really buttery feel to them, where you can feel the powder loosening as you swatch.  They aren’t particularly powdery, though they’ll kick up a little dust if you are heavy handed with your brush.  A little product goes a long way, so there’s no reason to jab at the eyeshadow with a brush (something you might have done with past matte eyeshadows).  The softness and give allow these to apply smoothly and evenly; there is no patchiness or drag with these.

The only downside to these is if you really pack on the color, you might find that it fades (ever-so-marginally) after eight hours; it’s a very minimal drawback, resulting in 0.5 point reduction in longevity.  Overall, these five shades had excellent color payoff and lovely textures.  Even the lightest, #356, applied smoothly and never looked chalky.

    359 would be a beautiful all-over wash for us blue eyed girls!

  2. Rozeta

    Thanks so much for these Inglot posts, Christine!! I’m going to be in Vegas for an entire week at the end of the month and was looking forward to stopping by Inglot there! Now, because of your swatches, I can plan ahead to what I want to try for myself! :)

    I love putting red matte eyeshadow on top of a lipstick for a really retro look…. so i’ll be picking up 382!

  4. These are the products that sold me on Inglot as a brand. I did manage to create a wee bit of a dust cloud the first couple of times that I used them, because I didn’t realise that they weren’t like other mattes. I haven’t tried these shades yet, but they’re on my list.

    Hi Christine. How do Inglot shadows compare to mac shadows in general? Is one a better quality than the other?

  6. #382 looks so vibrant. It looks like it could be as good as Ben Nye powder shadows.

  7. Leslie

    Wow, I’m SO excited you’re going through and swatching all of the Inglot eyeshadows. THANK YOU! There’s no other place to see consistent swatches of these products, and because many of us are nowhere near a store, this is the closest thing we’ll ever get to seeing them in real life before buying. You’re so helpful Christine, this is awesome.

  8. Cant wait to get my hands on some more of these!

  9. Jen

    Ooh this set of colors is my favorite of the Inglots you’ve posted… Soooo pretty! And I’m not usually a huge fan of pinks/reds.

  10. Heather

    Your efforts at pushing out Inglot information lately has been astounding! And so appreciated, as well. I don’t have it in me to purchase products online that I’ve not put my own hands on first and Inglot in particular is a frightening, ok not frightening but daunting, line to try and purchase sight unseen. Your work has made the idea of purchasing well within the realm of possibility now!

    Or, I could just hop in the car and drive from Phoenix to Newport, CA.

    Either way 😀

    Would you say Inglot’s 359 or Sugarpill’Love+ is a truer red?

  12. I have been looking forward to these reviews SO very much! I like the look of matter eyeshadows every now and then. Not sure how to incorporate it into looks? Do people use mattes as highlights/all over or crease? Or do they mix it up with shimmers? Would love to know everyone’s opinion.

    • Anything you want!

      I like mattes in the crease most myself – I also like mattes or semi-mattes as a highlighter.

    • Tabi

      I love doing mixes of mattes and pearls (frosts).

      My skin is oily, so I hate doing an all-shimmery eye look because I feel like it looks horrible throughout the day as my skin gets greasy. I blot and powder when I can, but it’s just easier to do a mixed eye look to make things more even in the first place.

      I like doing matte on lid, shimmer in the crease, then matte in the outer V. The matte in the V helps tone down the shimmer in the crease from being too much. I also like doing the reverse (shimmer on lid, matte in crease, shimmer in outer V), too.

    • Harleigh

      It really depends on what look you are trying to achieve. You could mix it with shimmers if you want depth (such as in a smokey eye.)Or you could wear it all over the lid for a simple pop of colour.

  13. Devon

    You are such a goddess. Seriously. I’ve been wanting to see good swatches of Inglot eyeshadows for a LONG time now. Especially the mattes.

  14. Kayvid

    Why are these not true to pan? They aren’t pearl finish, then what is washing them out?

  15. Sexy Sadie

    Totally love#382.

  16. Lisa

    Thanks so much Christine!

    How do Inglot’s matte neutrals compare to other brands, such as Bobbi Brown, or Mac? I’m really wanting to invest in a set of neutral matte eyeshadows and am not sure which to choose!

    Lisa xxx

    • They’re more comparable in texture to Bobbi Brown’s over MAC’s mattes – MAC’s have a drier, thinner texture; harder in a way, while BB is creamier, more of a buttery texture – like Inglot. MUFE is inbetween, not quite a hard matte but not super buttery either. MAC has excellent neutral mattes, though! They’re some of my favorites.

    Hi christine,

    how do you think the pink eye shadows will work as blushes? I noticed that Inglot has more pink eyeshadow selection than they do blushes =)

    • I’m sure they could – I bet the formulas are rather similar, and if they’re safe for use on the eyes, they should be fine on cheeks!

    hi Christine, thanks for these swatches. I was wondering if the #382 stains since a lot of red based pigments tend to stain. Thanks again for all your hard work, really appreciate it. :)

    Hi Christine, I was wondering if #382 stains since a lot of red based pigments tend to stain. Thanks for all of your hard work and excellent swatches!

  20. Lia

    These swatches are so useful! I have a question regarding mat whites. How is inglot white compared to the sugar pill “taco”?Which one you would recommend and for what use/look? also inglot has a pure matt white & matt white with sparkles, which one you think is better? Thanks L
