Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #323, 370, 364, 343, 333, 331, 384 (Yellows & Greens)


Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #2

Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #323, 370, 364, 343, 333, 331, 384 (Yellows & Greens)

Our look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) moves to some of their yellows and greens. (I did show #323 yesterday, but it fits better with this post.)  I’m hoping to get through the rest of the matte eyeshadows I have before next weekend, because I know several readers will be heading to IMATS in Pasadena, so I hope this will be helpful.

  • 323 is a bright, medium-dark yellow with a matte finish.
  • 370 is a bright yellow with a little mustard to it and a matte finish.
  • 364 is a soft yellow with a hint of green and a matte finish.
  • 343 is a bright yellowed chartreuse with a matte finish. This felt a little dry and ended up looking powdery and uneven when I swatched it.
  • 333 is a dark hunter green with a matte finish.
  • 331 is a medium-dark grass green with a matte finish.
  • 384 is a medium grass green 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.

I had a little trouble with #343, because the texture seemed drier and rather powdery, so it didn’t hold together as well and ended up having a more uneven finish than the other shades.

Edit: Images are fixed – sorry it took so long, I was sleeping.

Cult Nails Captivated Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Captivated Nail Lacquer<
Cult Nails Captivated Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Captivated Nail Laquer ($10.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “coral jelly polish packed with intense gold and coral glitter.”  It’s a pink-coral jelly base with molten gold and coral glitter that spreads really evenly and easily over the nail.  It’s best to wait for each coat to dry so that you don’t disturb the existing glitter.  I used three coats for a more opaque look, but it has a nice translucence when done with two coats–it’s truer to the squishy, jelly finish with two coats.   The formula is very thick; it reminded me of the consistency of hair gel, actually.

Captivated is a limited edition shade, and I know that Maria (creator and founder of Cult Nails) let me know that quantities were dwindling when she sent these for review.  I wore Captivated for a week without chipping, and removal is on par with other glitter polishes–it’s best to let your remover soak on the nail for a little bit and then removing.  I just use felt soaked in Zoya Remove+ and press it against the nail for 5-10 seconds, and then I do one pull.
