Inglot #405

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.

These are great shimmery earth tones that would work well with lighter beiges and champagnes. Both of the greener shades should work well across skin tones.

Inglot #422

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in Inglot #422, 409, 402, 421, 406 (Browns)

We continue exploring Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range by taking a look at five of the brown shades.  Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen.   I had a good experience with these five 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.  I really appreciate the consistency of Inglot’s eyeshadows, though, because even if you’re unsure of a color, at least you can anticipate the quality still being high and familiar.

  • 422 is a medium-dark chocolate brown with a pearl finish. It has a subtle red undertone.
  • 409 is a dark, bronzed chocolate brown with a pearl finish. This is a cooler-toned brown compared to #422.
  • 402 is a muted, taupe-ish brown with a pearl finish.
  • 421 is a medium-dark coppered brown with a pearl finish.
  • 406 is a golden bronze with a pearl finish, though it reads more metallic than pearl.

If you like your browns dark and luxurious, Inglot offers several shimmered variations for your perusal. For taupe fans, there appears to be #402 at the very least!

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.
  • 441 is a medium-dark violet with a pearl finish.

If you're a fanatic for purple eyeshadows, Inglot certainly has more than a few to satisfy you! It's a good mix of red- and blue-based purples, too.

Inglot #413

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #413, 428, 426, 415, 429 (Blues)

To finish out the palette, we have five blue shades from Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range.   Remember, the palette is completely customizable from the shades you fill it with to the size itself.

Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen.   #428 exemplifies what makes an excellent eyeshadow, and it’s one of the best of Inglot’s line from what I’ve tried so far–super rich in color and the way the base color and shimmer play together makes it glow.   All five shades featured in this post had a soft and smooth texture, rich color pay off, and were incredibly blendable.

  • 413 is a muted blue with a silvery-white sheen and pearl finish.
  • 428 is an intense, jewel-tone of violet-blue with a pearl finish. The intensity of this shade makes it glow!
  • 426 is a medium blue with a pearl finish.
  • 415 is an aqua-tinted blue with a flashy yellowed sea foam green duochrome and pearl finish. I didn’t expect to see anything akin to a duochrome in Inglot’s line, but I felt like this one is. The duochrome is subtle, but it’s definitely there–more noticeable in person.
  • 429 is a purple-leaning periwinkle with a high white metallic sheen, though it has a pearl finish.

What seemed like a surprisingly amount of blues initially ends up showing how varied blue can be. You have the richness of #428 with the duochrome of #415, and then there is the mix of purple and blue of #429.

Inglot #430

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #430, 403, 414, 418, 412 (Golds/Greens)

Next up, golds and greens of Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range.  (And the next set to follow, obviously, will be blues!)   #400 isn’t available in pan form, so I don’t have it, but I’m curious to see if it’s more of a true yellow, as both #430 and 403 are more gold than yellow.

Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen.   I had a good experience with these five 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.

  • 430 is a darkened yellow gold with a pearl finish that borders on metallic. I don’t have it to compare, but it seems like it would be similar to Urban Decay’s Honey eyeshadow.
  • 403 is a paled yellow gold with a pearl finish. This shade felt the slightest bit powdery, made more noticeable by the perfection of a lot of other shades I would say.
  • 414 is a blackened teal-green with a pearl finish. It has a blackened-brown base. It’s not as complex as shades like theBalm’s Jealous Jordana.
  • 418 is a medium-dark forest green with a black-brown base and pearl finish. It seems like it may be a little darker than MAC’s Humid but comparable.
  • 412 is a pale, yellowed chartreuse with a golden metallic sheen, though it has a pearl finish.

The richer gold of #430 will work well on warmer skin tones, while the paleness of #403 should make it a more workable yellow for warmer skin tones. #414 will make a great shade for smoky lash lines and creases, while #418 and 412 work well together for a nice gradient of green.

Inglot #397

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in #397, 407, 393, 395 (Oranges)

These are some of the more orange/peach shades from Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range. I wish Inglot would add color descriptions for their eyeshadows online, because I think it would enhance the buying experience and–at the very least–give us some indication of what to expect!

Inglot’s 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. These four shades are true-to-formula, though I did find that #393 and 395 were much lighter swatched than they appeared in the pan.

  • 397 is a warm, peachy beige with a pearl finish.
  • 407 is a orange-coral with peachy gold sheen with a pearl finish. It’s like a much more orange version of NARS Orgasm or MAC Melon pigment. This shade has more dimension than the majority of Inglot’s line, just because it’s more of a mix of two colors. It is one of my favorite shades I’ve swatched thus far!
  • 393 is a pale yellowed peach with a pearl finish. It looks more orange in the pan, but when swatched, it’s much yellower. It has a very noticeable white sheen, which is what seems to give it that lighter, more yellowed look.
  • 395 is the palest of orange, because it has a high white shimmer/sheen so it looks really, really light. It’s more like white with a hint of peach-orange. Like #393, it looks more orange in the pan.

A couple of these shades really emphasize the importance of swatching before buying (or looking for swatches online), because pan color might not be exactly the swatch color (which may be good or bad, depending on what you wanted!). Shades like #407 will work really well on warmer skin tones, while the other three are more universally flattering.
