I have quite big collection of Inglot Eyeshadows and pigments – Their palette Freedom System Eyeshadows is absolutely amazing, comfortable, durable, acrylic palettes are extremely long-lasting. But it’s something that can’t be changed, it’s just weight of acrylic – it’s make it stronger than any other eyeshadows in the market – Magnetic lid it’s absolutely phenomenal and practical! – only one thing could complaint Make-up Artist is the weight of the acrylic palettes (if you carry huge set of eyeshadows and blushes). But their palettes is different story…for different post – I want to say more about shadows not the palette.
I love that Inglot offers an amazing rainbow of colours in Freedom range – and all eyeshadows are rich in pigments. Inglot freedom pans are sold in round or square shape .
Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadows gives different finish:
Pearl – Another fairly standard term, these shades have a satiny to slightly shimmery frost finish, but are devoid of separate particles of glitter.
- Shine – I am not sure isn’t that just new description for Pearl… I would need to check it on IMATS
- AMC – Long time ago I had description of AMC but currently it’s hard to find it…
- Double Sparkle – I marked this on my swatches as matte+glitter as to me finish is somewhere between matte and shimmers and its the micro glitter flecks scatters on application giving just a hint of shimmers on lids..
- Matte – As you’d expect, matte shades have a dull finish, without any shimmer or sparkle.
- AMC – Stands for “Advanced Make-up Component”, This collection is perspiration resistant, contains vitamin E, and is talc-free. From what I could gather, the majority of AMC shade is a matte base… I also found description that AMC has 2x more pigment (?) but I am not 100% sure is it correct
AMC Shine: Same as AMC above, but more finely milled so these have a bit more sheen to them. Shimmery, frosty or metallic, but not glittery. Other shades in the line have a satin, high-frost to glittery finish…
Yes all types of types of eyeshadows are little bit confusing… that why is good to have a look testers in shop and check colours or search for swatches and reviews of specific colours in internet.
Please be aware that the eyeshadow numbering seems to be different from the one in Poland (and I bought all of my Inglot products there so far ) – as my friends discovered difference in placed order for the same colour as I own. But in 2014 I get stock my kit at London IMATS UK 2014 – So I would be able to update info.
So today I will share with you my colour collection from Inglot Freedom System.
I am a big fan of shimmer eyeshadows from Inglot – that gives nice satin shine.
My disappointments are Mattes and Double Shines… Despite Shines & Pearls are extremely easy to apply I do not like the AMC’s, MATTE’s and DS very much at all. The colours are matte and beautiful in pan but I find them a lot more difficult to work with than the others. When applied its becomes very powdery and does not hold on lid very good… Even more If you try to apply it wet or with Inglot Duraline, or other primer – colour becomes patchy with lighter and darker colour spots…
DS eyeshadows works good with Duraline (the same as pigments mixed with Duraline – BUT you have to scrape tiny amount of eyeshadow to your palette and then mix it together – colour becomes stronger, vibrant, applying is smooth. Be aware that if Duraline applied straight in to eyeshadow pan can ruin it – colour become solid! So remember to scoop it and mix it then.
Example of MATTE #58 DS + AMC Pigment Pot #29 – green and yellow applied with Duraline(eyebrow line blend down with yellow) :
I have to admit that I haven’t try this with Matte eyeshadows. Will test it with Duraline shortly.
So definitely I highly recommend Pearl and Shine Freedom Eyeshadows – and this what I get re-stock my Kit.
I tested colours of Make-up Atelier Paris Eyeshadows pans at MIATS 2013 and I bought the purple pan for tests – you can see it on swatch: Make-up Atelier Paris Eyeshadows pan: T412 Vilolet profond. Application is extremely easy, one stroke of brush gives amazing vibrant clolour! No patches, no marks – nice smooth layer! In 2014 I need to replace almost entire nude/brown bridal palette – and I decided that 90% of mattes going to be from Make-up Atelier Paris collection!
I supplied on swatch very gently but here is my make-up made with this colour ( for this make-up I used also Sugarpill Love+, La Famme blush on rouge: Framrosia, Kryolan Supra Colour metalic gold, inner eye corner it’s INGLOT #109 Shine; waterline made with Barry M black pencil)

Ups…I have to admit that – I always seen the difference between shade #132 and #133 but on picture both appears to be the same. So that’s another thing that you need to look after when buying Inglot eyeshadows . Their colour range is so biiiig – so it’s very easy to buy similar colours.

My palette and this how colours lookalike in pan.
I have only skipped Maybelline mono couture blue 440 (retrangular pan) but you can watch see this shade swathed in my video.
