These weren't all bought at one time, but I like that they offer their products in pan form, which is awesome if you have open palettes and want to save some money. I knew that eventually I'd save up and get a few, or a hundred!, of their empty palettes, so I opted to start with Inglot pan shadows. Starting at $6 a shadow, or even cheaper with their 20% off sale recently, I thought I'd be a fool not to cave.
Now, I am a converted shadow buyer! I have never really liked matte shadows, but after trying Inglot, I can't imagine my life without them! And their other finishes? Forget about everything else! These have such dimension, and are definately user friendly! They blend like a dream and are the most smooth and buttery shadows I've tried. I think now, with my recent purchases, I definately have every color that I could ever want or need!
The only issue I had with Inglot, is one heard about around the world. Their shades are not named, but numbered and by finish, so unless you plan on buying blindly each time, set aside time to google plenty of swatches and take notes. I decided to label my palettes as I put them together to ensure that on my next order, I don't end up with duplicates of the same shade.
Other than that, I was blown away by their palettes and how sturdy they are. They're made from a black plastic, but are magnetic so that the pans just snap right into place. This is awesome for traveling and even the clumsiest of people; these shadows don't just fall out, and the translucent lid also snaps shut, so your products will always be secure.
Ok, now for the long awaited swatches!
I purchased two palettes, a 5 pan palette and a 10 pan palette. I figured having the 5 pan would make it easy to switch out shadows to take while traveling!
