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.
