Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow palette: first impressions

Inglot square eyeshadow freedom system palette

The boy and I hit Westfield Bondi Junction today because I wanted to look at makeup, and we both wanted to scour JB HiFi (which was on a storewide 20% off sale).

At JBs a lot of stuff was sold out the day before so we walked away with some unexpected choices- I bought Tom Waits ‘Nighthawks at the Diner’ even though I had it on my computer already, a Jamie Cullum album (I have always avoided him in case he was anything like Michael Buble, but he’s great!) and somehow, inexplicably, ended up with a Susan Boyle album as well.

Getting back on the topic of discussion, I went up to an Inglot counter for the first time, and from the first swatch I was smitten. There was a huge range of colours and finishes, and everything was soft and pigmented. 

The ‘Freedom System’ is essentially a build-your-own-palette kind of deal, like the pro palettes that MAC Pro sell.

I decided to start small and get a quad. The top right colour in the above image is a matte medium purple grey- pretty much like MAC Scene but much more blendable; the top right shadow is a metallic olive; the bottom left is a dark pink (ok so I had the promo images of MAC Stylishly Yours collection in my head, where the model had the pink eyeshadow and winged liner); and the bottom right is a warm silver.   

From what I’ve seen so far from swatching, the colours, pigmentation, and blendability of the shadows have been very impressive (on par with some of the high end shadows I have used), but I guess the real test will be how it performs on the eyes. Will it fade or crease faster than MAC?

I was going to flip the eyeshadow pans to look at the shade names, but realized very quickly that the magnet holding the pans were quite strong and I would probably crack the shadows if I attempted it. So this is the receipt, with what appears to be the colour codes of the eye shadows.
