Inglot Matte Eyeshadow Palette #2
Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #332, 336, 322, 371, 367, 388, 369 (Blues)
To finish off this palette of Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.), we look at enough blue to paint a sky.
- 332 is a deep navy blue with a hint of indigo and a matte finish. I detected the faintest bit of blue micro-shimmer.
- 336 is a cornflower blue with a matte finish. I found it a smidgen on the sheer side, but it seems like it is buildable. It’s a bit like MAC’s Winkle.
- 322 is a bright, medium cyan blue with a matte finish.
- 371 is a bright cyan blue with a matte finish–it is just slightly lighter than #322.
- 367 is a pale, whitened sky blue with a matte finish. This was a little sheer and blended out too quickly (and ended up looking sheer).
- 388 is a vibrant, dark blue-purple with a matte finish. It seems comparable to MAC’s Atlantic Blue.
- 369 is a soft, paled periwinkle blue with a matte finish. Like #336, it was a touch sheer.
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.
#367 was the one I had the most trouble with; I think the lightness alone emphasizes any shortcomings it has–it’s a little sheer, slightly powdery, and the end result is something patchy. #336 and #369 were more buildable in color but still had some noticeable sheerness.
