Update: Inglot 10-Pan Freedom System.



Clockwise from top left: MATTE 349, MATTE 355, PEARL 420, MATTE 344.


Swatched: MATTE 355, MATTE 344, PEARL 420, MATTE 349.

My Inglot 10-Pan Freedom System is one of my most treasured possessions. I use it every single day without fail. However, there was always something amiss. With only 6 of the 10 shadows being used frequently, we were in a love that may not go the distance. In love, but not quite soul mates.

I rubbed the vaseline from the lenses of my rose-tinted glasses and resolved to replace the lesser loved shadows with some sensual mattes and a pearl to appease my neutral-loving heart.

MATTE 355: Soft, matte beige with a slight peachy undertone.
The lack of a matte flesh tone is what initially niggled at me. It truly is a necessity.

MATTE 344: Matte neutral brown with purple undertone.
After the surprise love I found with Urban Decay Cult, I was after a lighter, subtler version. And whoop, here it is.

PEARL 420:  A stunning silvery purple pearlescant neutral.
This is beautiful. The purple really pulls the green in my hazel eyes. This was, in the words of Savage Garden, a case of wanting, not needing, but dying to find out.

MATTE 349: Matte grey, borderlining on a cool toned brown.
Where has this colour been all my life? This is my ultimate cool-toned crease colour.

Do you like the colours I chose for my not-so-new palette?

    1. Thank you, as am I! I took the photo that became the header, but that's as far as my skills stretch. I commissioned a very talented artist. Her details are in the sidebar if you're interested. x

  2. I couldn't agree more with you about the Inglot Freedom palettes! They are absolutely genius. I spend SO long in there picking colours. It's quite insane and I'm sure the girls there think I am nuts, but it's fabulous. The pigments of the eyeshadows are out of this world too. If only they would open an Inglot store on the Melbourne CBD!

    The colours you picked are perfect neutrals. The kinds of colours I reach for every day. You absolutely cannot go wrong. I'm going to look out for the Pearl 420 as it looks delightful, and I also have hazel eyes so am sold from your review :)

    Thanks for a great post!

    1. Thank you, Lisa. 420 is STUNNING. You'll love it if you've got hazel eyes. Fingers crossed they'll open a counter in Melbs CBD soon. x

  5. Woah, when I saw your customised quad, I thought Dior 5 (or rather 4) Couleurs in Grege 734. But at a fraction of the price. ;) (I did think of finding dupes for it, but couldn't be bothered in the end and just bought the darn thing...shoulda waited til your post came up! ;)) Love the pearlescent grey and brown shade combo in particular! :)

  6. Wow, love 349. Looks like it could work with so many looks.

    Also I hate you forever for putting Savage Garden in my head. I'm going to have this ear-worm all night now.

    1. I may be alone at this party, but I enjoy not having to type out innuendo when writing out the names of the colours. But I will admit Inglot's naming lacks imagination. x

  8. Loving all those colours especially 420... wish there was an Inglot store near where I live :( so hard to see those beautiful swatches and not run out to get them myself!

    1. I live 5 hours drive from a counter so I'm not exactly close. I love visiting the counters even though it's hard not to spend too much! x

  9. I love the idea of a custom palette. I've just started my own Z-pallete and i love it so much! I always feel like palettes that all brands come out with always have quite a few shades that I would never use! I love the colours that you've chosen, I'm a neutral girl at heart myself.
