There's little to be said about this utilitarian post other than the fact that I hopelessly love neutral eyeshadows - nothing gets my heart beating faster than a unique taupe, a shimmery off-white, a golden brown. These seven INGLOT Freedom System eyeshadow pans are the newest in my collection and haven't been swatched here before, which is why I felt compelled to macro photograph them to smithereens.
I've made an attempt at discussing the finishes before, but I have a couple more observations. All of the matte shades featured here (328, 337, 349 and 326) come from a newer selection of eyeshadows and seem far superior to the INGLOT mattes I owned previously; these are buttery soft, pigmented and very creamy, but tend to get a little dusty. The two AMC (Advanced Make-up Components) Shine eyeshadows here are almost duochrome: the very light pink has little pigment in itself, but it's packed full of beautiful opalescent pink pearl, and when swatched, the golden brown is not brown at all, but gorgeously gold. The light nude/peach Double Sparkle eyeshadow no. 467 is not sparkly in the slightest; it's more of a satin formula with subtle shimmers. I hope this makes some sense if you're trying to distinguish between INGLOT finishes; I find that just going for the shades I like and not worrying about the finish works best for me. They're all great quality in the end!
Onto close-ups and swatches:
My favorites in this bunch are the two AMC Shine eyeshadows (142 & 112) and the 337 and 349 Matte, which I use as subtle crease shades for warm and cool eye looks respectively. On my last visit to an INGLOT store in Warsaw, I had a really hard time finding any other shades I liked, so I think these round up my 'Best of INGLOT eyeshadows' selection quite nicely.
