My beautiful Inglot palette - photo heavy!

After much lusting over my fellow beauty blogger's purchases from Inglot, I decided I needed to see what all of the hoo haa was about.  So a couple of weeks ago, fresh from payday, I went to the Jervis Street branch to have a swatch fest and pick out some shades.  Behold my 10 shade Freedom Palette...

This cost me €55, so €5.50 per eyeshadow?  A pretty spectacular deal if you ask me!  It took me ages to decide what shades to pick because they've such a massive selection and everything looked gorgeous.  A couple of the shades I wanted were out of stock so I kept having to go back and make more choices until I filled up my ten shade palette.  I'm delighted with my selections and I figured as this was my first play around with Inglot, I wanted to get shades that I knew I'd use.  I'm sure as I go back and get more, that I'll get more brave with my colour choices!

The shades are numbered rather than named which makes it very hard to remember what ones I have so remind me to add a list into my phone so the next time I head into Inglot, I know what I already have!  It's hard to remove the pans from the palette but I used a teeny weeny screwdriver to poke into the corner and gently release the shadow to see the number.  So let me show you which ones I got with some swatcheroonies.

#378 (left), #52 (right)

#464 (left), #360 (right)

#31 (left), #465 (right)

#37 (left), #328 (right)

I can't explain to you how happy this palette makes me.  I've been using it every day and already have some favourites.  I'm in love with shade #31 for an all over the lid wash of colour and have been using shade #52 in the outer corner and crease for an easy smokey eye look.  The big surprise of the palette and to be honest, the shade I flip flopped over whether I should get or not is the orange #464 shade.  I love wearing it under the lower lashes to make my eyes look really green. 

Here's a quick couple of photos with me playing around with those three shades.  In The Love.

You can check out the Inglot Ireland Facebook page here to learn more about Inglot.  I'll be back with more make up looks using my palette and no doubt over the coming months will make more investments (€5.50 a shadow?!)
