I thought it would be fun to celebrate the London Olympics with a few posts inspired by the colors of the medals handed out (gold, silver, and bronze). This post features five of my favorite gold-colored products!
Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in Inglot #405, 404, 419, 433 (Earth Tones)
Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) were seemingly easy to organize by color, but after swatching, there were a few odd ones out that didn’t quite seem to go with traditional browns or greens. Consequently, I give you earth tones. I will finish up this palette with grays and whites in the next Inglot post!
I’ve come to really appreciate consistency over the years, both in a brand’s overall quality as well as what to expect from a particular product/formula. I’m nearly finished swatching over forty shades of Inglot’s pearl eyeshadows, and there aren’t any true duds. There are a couple that aren’t true-to-pan in color, but the quality is quite consistent within the range. It just means that no matter what color you might buy, you can expect really soft, smooth textures with excellent color payoff–and these four shades are no exception.
405 is a medium copper brown with a pearl finish, though it is slightly metallic in sheen. This seems like it would be comparable to MAC Amber Lights (perhaps not as red-based).
404 is a dirtied gold with a pearl finish. It’s gold but not a true gold; there is some brown in there. It seems comparable to MAC’s Goldmine (possibly a little darker).
419 is a muted olive green with an antique gold sheen and pearl finish.
433 is a lightened olive green with a stronger gold pull and pearl finish.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
