I have always wanted a MAC eyeshadow palette, but the price always delayed the purchase of one. One day while reading Temptalia, I read her review on Inglot Eyeshadows, an up and coming brand. The price ($5 an eyeshadow), excellent reviews, and great recommendations pushed me to order one online. Down below is an explanation of the "Freedom System" and reviews and pictures of each eyeshadow! :)
**WARNING: Extremely long and detailed post haha!**
MY Inglot Freedom System 10 Eyeshadows Palette!
What is the Freedom System?
Inglot has a system where you can choose either 2, 4, 5, 10, or 20 eyeshadows for a custom palette! You can choose any colors that you wish and in whatever order you want. The eyeshadow pan was $10 for my 10 eyeshadow palette.
Eyeshadow Formulation Review:
Texture: Inglot Eyeshadows are extremely smooth and apply evenly. There is barely any fallout, and the chunky glitter eyeshadows transfer pretty evenly.
Longevity: This was Inglot's downfall. It seems as if I am the only one with problems of their longevity! I have tried several bases including Revlon cream eyeshadows, concealer, and Urban Decay Primer Potion. It seems as if the color fades within a couple of hours unlike my Urban Decay Eyeshadows. I still haven't given up though!
Pigmentation: I am extremely impressed with the pigmentation! Very little eyeshadow is needed to have an opaque finish. There is an extreme consistency with the pigmentation of their eyeshadows.
Product: There is so much product in this eyeshadow! MAC eyeshadows are normally .05 oz for $15. An Inglot Eyeshadow is .09 oz for usually $4.50! The price difference and amount of product is a lot more economic.
Packaging: The packaging is unique. It has a magnetized cover that can be stacked with multiple palettes. One HUGE complication is that it is almost impossible to take the eyeshadow out once you have put it into your palette.

My Chosen Eyeshadows
During the process of picking my eyeshadows, I chose a lot of mattes. There are not a lot of pigmented matte eyeshadows out there, so when I found out Inglot made some great matte shadows, I jumped on the opportunity. Also, my Urban Decay Naked Palette is basically all shimmer, so I needed some matte neutrals. I also added a few fun colors like navy and purple to change it up a bit.
Matte Eyeshadow #391 - a matte black
Matte Eyeshadow #326 - a matte plum chocolate brown
Pearl Eyeshadow #409 - A warm chocolate brown with gold shimmer and glitter
Matte Eyeshadow #389 - matte navy (BLOG POST ON HOW TO FIX CRACKED EYESHADOW COMING UP SOON)
DS Eyeshadow #494 - purple with blue undertones and gold glitter/shimmer
Matte Eyeshadow #339 - matte light charcoal gray
DS Eyeshadow #339- shimmery white champagne
Pearl Eyeshadow #431- pearl shimmer with pink undertones
Matte Eyeshadow #360- light matte brown with gray undertones
DS Eyeshadow #463- neutral champagne with gold shimmer and glitter
For some reason, the eyeshadows look washed out because of the flash! They are much more vibrant in person.
