A lot of us have gone thru a ‘Pink‘ phase in our childhood…where we wanted pink dresses, pink walls, pink barbie furniture, pink head bands, pink pencils and what not. I was never one of those kids..Infact, I was a tomboy who loved Blues and greens more and hated the reds and pinks my mom forced me to wear..I thought I was above the craze the the color Pink created..
I was sorely mistaken..I think that was a period of arrested development, coz the minute I started using makeup, Pink became my most prized shade.. And now, 90% of my lipsticks/blushes are pink…may it be matte, satin, shimmer, I simply have to get hold of any hue of Pink I set my eyes one and this Blush from Inglot is no exception. I saw it, I wanted it, I bought it…and satiated another tiny ‘PINK’ part of myself
- Price: INR 350
- Quantity: 6.5 gms (although the site mention 7gms)
My take on the Inglot Freedom system blush in No.38:
- Packaging:This rectangular refill pan is packaged in a plastic casing which is quite sturdy. You may choose to transfer them to a palette (safer option) or keep it in the plastic casing and use it when necessary.
- Color : This is a pink shade with a deep blue undertone. It does have some shimmer but its quite subtle and suitable for work as well since its not too obvious or blingy.
- Texture & Pigmentation: The texture is quite smooth like the other refill pans but not as velvety. It does take a bit more effort to blend this in as compared to the other 5 shades I have from the Freedom system. This shade is well pigmented and no complaints in this area. But I do wish it were easier to blend it out.
- Application: I apply this in circular motion on my cheeks so that I can better blend it. It does take me more effort to buff this shade but I’m not sure whether this is an issue only with my pan.
- Cost:At just 350bucks, these blushes are a steal…I don’t mind passing on the potted blushes in favour of these since this means I get to hoard more blushes while saving half the amount (the individual pots cost 720bucks per piece).
Here’s a look at the swatch:
And here’s how it looks blended…
What I love about Inglot Freedom system blush in No.38:
- Decent pigmentation.
- Stays for about 5-6hrs on my cheeks which is quite okay.
- Has a tinge of shimmer which gives a nice glow to the face without making one look like a disco ball.
- A nice and unusual shade of pink. (for me atleast)
- Refills are good space-savers
- Cost effective
- A good range of shades to choose from
- Paraben Free
- Not tested on animals
What I dislike about Inglot Freedom system blush in No.38:
- I find it a bit tough to blend this shade but as mentioned above, I’m not sure whether this is specific to the pan I received.
- Pigmentation: 4.5/5
