Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #423, 452, 450, 399, 431 (Reds/Pinks)


Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #423, 452, 450, 399, 431

Today, I wanted to take a look at a few of Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.). The Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen. The pearl finish is probably my favorite of Inglot’s finishes, because it has the right mix of color payoff and texture. It’s soft, smooth, and very blendable. All of the shades featured in this post applied beautifully; really intense color delivered in a silky smooth formula. For the most part, the shimmer was incredibly fine and the sheen pearled.

  • 423 is a smoldering burgundy-tinged brown with a pearl finish.
  • 452 is a medium-dark burgundy-red with a pearl finish. It reminded me of MAC Cranberry.
  • 450 is a medium-dark raspberry pink with a pearl finish.
  • 399 is a muted, played down pink with a little mauve and in a pearl finish.
  • 431 is a light, pastel pink with a bright, frosted white sheen. It is a pearl finish, but I found the sheen more metallic than pearly with this shade.

When I decided that I would work through Inglot’s eyeshadow line and swatch through it, 20-pan palettes were the largest available, so that is what I went with. I like symmetry, so I’ll be sticking with those sizes. The 20-pan palette is a little larger than my hand–the palette measures 6 3/4″ x 6″. The palette is sturdy and hefty with strong magnets to keep the eyeshadows locked in place along with the frosted lid, which is also held on by magnets. My biggest issue with the strength of the magnets is that it’s difficult to move the pans around once you’ve placed them in there. I have to use tweezers and be very, very careful around the edge (there is just not much room to work). You can use the magnetic part of the lid to remove, but for me, my hands are too shaky to do that.

Pricing might seem confusing at first — if you intend to purchase a palette, then the pans are $7.00 each for 1-2, $5.00 each for 3-9, and $4.50 each if you purchase 10 or more. Online, you’re able to purchase as much or as little as you want, while in-store you have to fill whatever palette you purchase (which can be frustrating if you want to keep your finishes separate!). I did notice, though, if you intend to purchase more than one palette, you’ll end up paying the full price of the second palette and get no discount for filling it when you buy online. If you did this in-store, you would still get the discounted price of the palette ($5.00).

Shipping is free both online and in-store for purchases over $150. You can also purchase the eyeshadows individually in round pots for $12.00 each. Both the pans and the pots contain 0.09 oz. of product. The palettes range from 2-pan to 20-pan online, but 40-pan palettes are available in-store. I expect the online store to eventually carry the 40-pan palettes in the next month or so. If you purchase in-store, be prepared to lay out $185 for a filled 40-pan palette.

Sunday Link Love, Volume #058

Happy Sunday!

Today’s a quiet day for us — yesterday, my boyfriend’s brother and friend came down for fight night. Mellan had a great time, though, because the three boys threw the football around and Mellan and his brother-from-another-mother, Neptune, ran between them trying to grab the ball (neither was successful). Hope you’re having a good Sunday!

We are in the process of reviewing applications.  We will update this post as necessary.  We received an amazing amount of outstanding applications, so the process will be quite difficult, and we want to ensure we spend quality time reviewing each applicant.

We are looking for fun, passionate, and savvy individuals who love beauty, makeup, and skincare! If you live and breathe the world of beauty and would love to share your experiences and knowledge with a community of beauty enthusiasts, this is something for you! We are currently accepting applications for the following contributors:

  • Skincare Enthusiasts: Whether you have the degree to prove it or are a self-professed skincare junkie who reads through ingredient lists like a pro, we want to hear from you! We are looking for two to five contributors of varying skin types and ages to provide different perspectives as skincare can be such a maze to navigate through!
  • Hair Care Enthusiasts: Are you a styling wiz? Have you dealt with the most unruly hair and conquered the beauty market to find the very best? Or are you still on a seemingly never-ending journey for holy grail hair products? We’re looking for two to three contributors to focus on hair care tips, tricks, and reviews.
  • Fragrance Enthusiasts: Do you have a nose that knows? Can you dissect the different notes in a fragrance and translate it into a review or critique? We’re looking for one to two contributors to focus on fragrance tips and reviews.
  • Industry Experts: Are you a professional esthetician, hair stylist,  makeup artist, nail technician, etc.? We would love for you to share your professional viewpoint with readers along with tips and tricks from that perspective.
  • Going Global to Go Local: There are so many beauty brands that are only available in certain parts of the world, and while we may be able to cover many that dominate in the U.S., we are looking for one to three individuals from other areas of the world to give readers access to non-U.S. brands by those who know them best—locals!

Contributors will be asked to write one to three posts per month within their subject. In exchange, contributors will receive exposure and experience—and hopefully have a lot of fun! Temptalia’s audience reaches 600,000 unique individuals each month, and on average, Temptalia is visited 60,000 times per day—1.7 million visits per month and 5 million pageviews per month.
