Before I get down to reviewing the 4 Inglot shadows that I own let me give you a little basic information about their products in the eyeshadow department.
They have an ‘AMAZING’ range of colours that are quite pigmented, offer good coverage, blend easily and go on smoooothly. It’s basically high quality stuff – affordably priced. Firstly, you can buy most of the shadows in a little pot with a cap that you can screw off. It contains 2 gms of product and it costs Rs. 560. Secondly you get to buy the shadows in little pans called refills. The shadows come both in a square and round refill pans. Unfortunately matte and rainbow shadows only come in square refill pans.
Eye shadows come in the following textures and finish:
- AMC(Advanced Makeup Component) – It is matte with shimmer
- AMC Shine – With this finish you will get a metallic sheen and shimmer
- D.S. (Double Sparkle) – This is a matte finish which has shimmer of different colours in it
- Pearl – The finish has a pearly sheen to it
Lets understand ‘magnetic’ and ‘non-magnetic’ palettes. The ‘Palette’ will store your refills without them getting damaged.
The ‘Non Magnetic’ palette is black and compact. It opens up to reveal a mirror that is as big as your case. It’s classy to look at and easy to carry in your vanity case.
As for ‘Magnetic’ pallettes well they look classier but lack a mirror because you see they are built differently. The palette has an independant cover and base. The cover is not attached to the base with hinges but clings on due to small strong magnets on all four sides of both the cover and the base. You cannot lift the glass cover off, you have to slide it off.
The cover is made of frosted glass and has the Inglot logo all over for a design. Although it’s glass it’s quite sturdy but the downside is, it’s heavy. Glass makes it possible to see what colour is in each palette without having to open it. You can stack one on top of the other too. The refills can be depotted by touching the frosted glass’s (cover) magnet to the refill’s side/pan. Do it carefully so u don’t damage the product inside the pan.
3 refills storage – Rs. 300 non magnetic
5 refills storage – Rs. 350 non magnetic
10 refills storage – Rs. 1400 magnetic
20 refills storage – Rs. 2400 magnetic
5 refills storage – Rs. 850 magnetic
10 refills storage – Rs. 1400 magnetic
20 refills storage – Rs. 2800 magnetic
Square palettes are costlier because the square refill has more product than a round refill although both round and square refills retail individually for Rs. 300 each! You pay for the additional product through the palette. Smart eh?

Now that you are well aware of the terminology lets go to second base.
Inglot has what is called the ‘Freedom System’. Let me break it down step by step:
- First, choose the colours you like.
- Second, decide if you want individual pots or refills
- Third, If you choose refill then decide on the shape of your pan – Round or Square.
- Fourth, buy the palette according to the type, shape and number of refills you’ve chosen.
You may have 3 round refills and 1 square refill so then you will have to get a 3 or 5 round palette – non magnetic and a 5 square palette minimum – magnetic.
Downside well, the refills are sold by the palette only and not individually. So remember to take your palette with you when you are going to buy more refills. First cause if there’s place to fill more refills then why buy another palette and second if you dont want more palettes but only want the refills then de-pot the refills and take the palette there!!!

Eyeshadow quantities – 2.7gms in a square pan > 1.5gms in a round pan.
I have the following colours:
Inglot eyeshadow AMC shine 11:-
It’s a light gold colour with shimmer. Has plenty of fall out and you need to put alot of it for it to show. It looks nice as a neutral colour also. It will show on fair as well as dark skin tones.
It’s an olive green with a subtle gold sheen that gives a shimmery finish. On fair skin it really shows nicely but on dark tones it looks like gold only. Green is nice for brown eyes and I love it.
Inglot Eyeshadow Matte 376:-
Its a cool toned, very pigmented, dark grey, matte with purple undertones that glides on to the skin effortlessly. I guess this colour too suits both skin tones. I use it as a neutral colour cause I don’t know to blend 2 or more colours;
but for those of you who do and like the smoky look, this is definately for you.
Eye Shadow 378 - Rs 680 for 2.0 gms:-
This soft orange shadow I love very much because I use this as a base/concealer/highlighter over my eyelids. It cancels all the tiredness / darkness on the lids making my eyes look very fresh and in turn - the entire face. I wear this colour with any look and under all my colours because it really doesn’t look orange but kinda evens out the skin tone beautiful. This of course will show and look best on fair to wheatish skin tones. Apply it with your fingers or a brush….but be gentle when you use a brush or you may have some loose powder on the surface.
Inglot has a promotion right now. If you shop for Rs. 5000 you will get a ‘Prestige Card’ that entitles you to 15% discount on any future purchase for an entire year!
