Inglot Freedom System Palette

One thing I was not expecting to see when I walked into a perfumery on one of the harbors in Lanzarote, was an Inglot counter. I had to double check I was reading the name right. In most of the perfumeries there are only the main big brands like Chanel, Dior, YSL, LancĂ´me and Clinique so I honestly couldn't believe this one stocked Inglot.

I have heard many things about their products from other beauty bloggers, but they always said they purchased theirs from America or London, usually in IMATS, and since I'm not visiting either of those places any time soon, I had just accepted it was going to be quite a while before I could try any of their products.

So naturally when I did see their counter I got very excited, probably too excited, and decided to make my own Freedom System palette.

I chose the five square palette and filled it with two matte shades and three shimmery/pearl shades. I knew I wanted two matte shades so I could use one as an all over wash for if I'm doing a simple eyeliner look, and one as a light crease colour and I think the two I've chosen do that very well. The 337 is more of a peachy nude and the 360 is a normal light brown but it gives a subtle definition to the crease which I like.
Then the other three colours I picked just because I liked them. I didn't own any eye shadows which had more of a purple/pink tone to them so I was aiming towards those shades but I still ended up coming out with a champagne gold colour. It's such a staple shade though because it's wearable during the day and at night and it blends easily with lots of colours, so how could I not?! But I think my favourite is 452 on the far right. I wore it for a meal out whilst I was away and it looked so pretty because the colour wasn't too much but it still looked smokey enough for an evening.

I am already in love with this palette, the colours are very pigmented and blend so easily, which is great for me because I really can't blend eye shadows. I would even say they are quite comparable to M.A.C eye shadows, but Inglot's work out a lot cheaper. I've actually heard that 423 is a dupe for satin taupe which is a colour I've been wanting to get from M.A.C for a while.
