Please don't forget to enter my Senna Brow Shaper Duo Giveaway. It ends June 30, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST (Eastern time).

This is my second and final product I bought from Inglot at The Makeup Show.

Here's a picture of my haul just to refresh your memory if you have been reading my blog for some time. I already reviewed Inglot AMC Lip Paint. It's the box on the upper left hand corner. I highly recommend that lip gloss/paint!!! It is extremely pigmented, gorgeous, shiny, and it smells great! :) Now I'm going to review the rest of the products in that picture.

The big box is the empty palette.
There are different versions of the empty palettes. I got the Freedom System Palette 10 Eye Shadow Square. On the website it says it costs $16 for this palette. I bought the kit at The Makeup Show which is the palette plus 10 eyeshadows of your choices for $50.
The palette comes with a removable lid. At first, I found it inconvenient. Why would anyone want a removable lid that's what I asked myself. Now I actually like it! Since the palette is so flat (bottom part) and when you put it on a counter, it's hard to grab. I had to slide it off the counter whenever I grabbed the bottom part of the palette. Who has the time to do that when you're applying eyeshadows. :/ For that reason I would put the lid on the counter and the bottom part on top of it. It made it a lot easily to grab the bottom part! ;)

It also comes with magnets on all four corners. Let me tell you how extremely strong the magnets are! It is hard to just grab the lid and pull it up. You have to slide one side sideways and then pull it up. It's a good thing that the magnets are strong. If you take this as a travel palette, you do not have to worry about the lid coming off and ruining your eyeshadows.
Here's the bottom part of the palette.
Product Review: INGLOT Freedom System Eye Shadow Square

Where to purchase: stores that sell Inglot and
Price: $6 for 2.3 to 3.5 g/ 0.8 to 0.11 oz

Made in Poland

Thoughts: I first heard of Inglot through beauty blogs. It really intrigued me and for that reason, I've been wanting to try their products. Unfortunately, there wasn't a store near me and I was against buying products I have never seen in person. If I've seen them in person and liked what I saw, then I'll be up for buying them online. Since I've never seen or even tested it out, I had no idea except the brand really intrigued me. When I heard they would be at The Makeup Show, I was stoked! That's the first booth I went as soon as I entered the convention.
They sell individual eyeshadows that you get to choose the ones you want. Each one comes in a package you take out to put into the palette. Here's a picture of one of the eyeshadows I got.
Here's how my eyeshadows palette look in natural light. Each slot of the palette has a magnetic that holds onto the eyeshadow pan. I think it's cool compared to other brands where you have to put magnetic onto the bottom of the eyeshadow pan to fit into the palette. You don't need to do an extra step here. I also think it's cool you can use the magnetic on the lid to grab onto the eyeshadow pans to take them out of the palette.
This is the first row. The colors from left to right are Shine 30, Shine 11, Shine 31, Shine 15, and Matte 344.
This is the second row. The colors from left to right are D.S. 465, D.S. 459, Pearl 422, Shine 37, and Pearl 423.

I'm sure you can tell most of the are on the neutral family. I wanted to buy eyeshadows I know I will wear often; gold and brown family, and the only colors I do wear often are orange and greens. Of course, you don't have to buy the ones I bought. The eyeshadows are extremely pigmented, easy to apply, and soft to the touch. I also love that after putting your brushes into the eyeshadows, they aren't any loose powders. I love how compacted the eyeshadows are, but at the same time, soft.

Here's three looks I did with the eyeshadows.
Look #1:

It's the same look with flash. I wanted to show you how it looks through flash. I think it came out gorgeous in flash! I used three eyeshadows from the palette.
Look #2:
I used two eyeshadows from the palette.
Look #3:
I only used one eyeshadow from the palette. Sorry the pictures did not come out that great! Either the camer got worst or I need to practice taking pictures. :X This looked better in person than the picture in my opinion.

I've been using this eyeshadow palette for the last two months. I love the quality and how long lasting they are!

* Magnetic palette; just pop in the eyeshadow pans.
* Choose your own eyeshadows.
* Comes in a variety of colors and types (shine, matte, pearl, and so on).
* Pigmented.

* No loose powders.

* Hard to find stores.

Would repurchase: Yes!

I didn't realize I still had this picture. It's the first and so far the last bag I bought this year.
I bought it from Coach.

Yay you posted your Inglot eye shadows! Aren't they great? I agree with you that it's better to swatch them in person first before buying online, especially since they are only named by numbers and don't have color descriptions (at least, not the last time I'd checked).

I really like your color choices, especially the orange shade. It's so pretty! The bottom row looked dark and smokey but more wearable in your swatches. Thanks for sharing!

I've heard lots of good reviews on Inglot's palettes but I haven't had a chance to try any of their shadows myself. I love the colors you chose for your palette and the looks you created with them! Look #2 is my favorite :)
