Inglot Palette and Lip Paint

I'd been interested in trying out Inglot cosmetics for some time. As they only have one store in the UK, in the Westfield Shopping Centre in London, I knew I wasn't likely to get my hands on them for some time. Fortunately for me, I realised they have a counter close to My Mum's where my Mum used to love in Muscat. I was lucky enough to talk my Mum into doing a little shop for me before she returned to England.

It's always difficult to get someone to shop for you but I think my Mum did a sterling job here. I got an AMC Lip Paintin shade no. 59 and a Freedom palette with three eyeshadows. I'd specifically asked for the lip paint (having spotted it on Vex and the City's blog) but the eye palette was something Mum thought I might like. I love purples so this was certainly no disappointment.

Here are some swatches of the eye palette and lip paint.

I was particularly keen to try the lip paint as it seemed very similar to MAC's Up The Amp which I love. I've included a swatch of them side by side as a comparison. MAC Up The Amp is at the top of the frame and Inglot Lip paint in 59 is at the bottom. The swatches are a little pinker than they are in the flesh but hopefully you can see that the lip paint is a very similar but glossier version of Up The Amp. It's also nicely pigmented and opaque.

I put together a look using all of the colour. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows. I applied the lightest shade all over my lid blending out above the eye socket and noticed how creamy it was and nicely pigmented. They were easy to blend too. I was really pleased with the lip paint, it's nice to apply and has left my lips feeling quite moisturised with no tackiness.

I'm really happy with these items. I do wish that Inglot was more accessible though, in particular I'd like to see them add an online store to the Inglot website.

  6. Your mum has got excellent taste! :) The glossiness of the lip paint is gorgeous. It's so annoying that Inglot don't have an online store! I've wanted to try their stuff for so long.

  7. Super pretty! Love these colours for autumn. The Inglot Freedom palettes are great, I have several & got my little sis (who lives in New Zealand where they don't have Inglot) a 10-pan palette for her birthday last year & she was over the moon.

  8. @Mouldy Fruit that is a huge compliment coming from you. Thank you so much lovely!

    @Lipstick Rules thank you!

    @Lily from Paris she did so well. Her next mission will be to Suqqu when they visit Thailand again!

    @Sophie the formulation on the things I have a great. Definitely comparable to MAC.

    @Beauty’s Bad Habit Thank you! They have such a great website, I honestly don’t get why they don’t sell online.

    @Ms. Wedgie Mummy did good! I really hope they’ll start selling online soon. It’s very frustrating being able to see all the great swatches on their website but not being able to buy!

    @star_violet I looked at your swatches when I was making up a photo ideas board for my Mum :). I think I’ll definitely find my way to Westfield for some more!

    Thank you all for the great comments,
