Purple can be a hard color to nail, and even lighter variations of purple can be tough. For those who love the idea of purple but haven’t found a good way to wear it yet, consider a lighter shade, which can be easier to work with.
Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in Inglot #446, 445, 440, 420, 439, 441 (Purples)
Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range is certainly expansive! They don’t quite fit into two 20-pan palettes neatly (there are two that overflowed into a third, plus one I know I’m missing). There are also a fair amount that seem to only be available in individual pots, rather than refills (which I do not have).
Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen. I had a good experience with these six eyeshadows–they were easy to work with, nicely pigmented, and had the soft, smooth textures I’ve come to expect from Inglot’s Pearl eyeshadows. #440 is the only one that I felt wasn’t true-to-pan in color; it was a few notches lighter, because of the heavy white pearl.
446 is a rich, jewel-toned plum purple with red undertones in a pearl finish.
445 is a softened, medium-dark plum with a pearl finish.
440 is a frosted, cool-toned lilac with a pearl finish. Like some of the other lighter pearl shades, the white pearl really reflects and comes through, almost washing the shade out.
420 is a grayish mauve with a pearl finish–it almost looks metallic.
439 is a rich, jewel-toned violet purple with a pearl finish.
