Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #377, 379, 325, 375, 320, 386, 334, 346 (Purples)


Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #3

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #377, 379, 325, 375, 320, 386, 334, 346 (Purples)

This next look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) features several variations on purple.

  • 377 is a deep royal purple with a matte finish, though I detected a slight micro-shimmer. This shade was a little patchy.
  • 379 is a medium-dark blue-purple with a matte finish. This shade was powdery and sheer in places.
  • 325 is a rich eggplant purple with a matte finish.
  • 375 is an eggplant purple with a matte finish–it is just a lighter version of #325. It has a slightly stronger red undertone.
  • 320 is a medium grape purple with a matte finish. It was a little sheer in places.
  • 386 is a lightened medium purple with red undertones and a matte finish. It was patchy and easily sheered out.
  • 334 is a pink lavender with a matte finish. I also had some evenness issues with this shade.
  • 346 is a light lilac with a matte finish.

While I’ve had fairly good luck with Inglot’s matte eyeshadows in the past, I found a lot of these troublesome.  Several shades did not apply evenly, so the end result was a patchy swatch that was sheer in places and opaque elsewhere.  I was rather disappointed in how these swatched, so I played around with them in application, and they were better but not as stellar as the rest of the matte range.  The only shades out of these that I recommended are #325 and #375.

Chanel Fall 2011 Makeup Collection


Chanel Fall 2011 Makeup Collection

Inspired by the heritage and savoir faire of the artisanal craftsmanship of the House of Chanel, Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, introduces new textures and makeup effects in a radiant Fall 2011 Collection, ILLUSIONS D’OMBRES DE CHANEL. At the heart of this captivating colour story: Shimmering bronze, gold and platinum are the perfect complements to plum, khaki and copper shades on eyes and lips.
