Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #328, 353, 355, 351, 323 (Beiges & Yellow

Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range has a fair amount of peaches/beiges (they seem to have more peach than beige) — plus a bright yellow to cheer the whole group up, since it sits in the last slot of this palette.

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.

I did find that #323 was the “worst” of the bunch; it did have some payoff issues, where it applied unevenly and seemed to disappear was I blended it out.   #353 and 355 are really similar, as well, and I don’t think one would need both; #353 is just a little warmer.

MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions: Jealousy Wakes Comparison Swatches

Now, I have no problems comparing Jealousy Wakes to other products, because it’s the shade I created and it doesn’t bother me to share comparisons with all of you.  Part of me hoped to find something comparable, but the other part wanted to find nothing, just because that was the whole point! 🙂

I haven’t tried it, but you may be able to get rather close with MAC Teal and Emerald Green pigments – a little mix of both just might get you there.  I’ll play around with it later on this week to see.
