Inglot DS 491 Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

By Surbhi K.

Hi Everyone,

This is my first review on IMBB.  I have been a follower of IMBB since many months and I owe my entire makeup collection to IMBB.  I was just a kajal person 6 months back and now I have a huge makeup collection. I really want to thank IMBB for this.

Inglot DS 491 Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

Today, I am going to review shade double sparkle 491 from Inglot Freedom System Collection. I hope you like my review and give me an opportunity to be a member of IMBB family. I bought Inglot eye shadows 2 months back from an online shopping site after reading their wonderful reviews on IMBB. DS 491 is one of my few first eye shadows from Inglot.

About The Shade:

DS 491 is a beautiful dark purple color with silver glitter. It belongs to double sparkle category of eye shadows. The other finishes available are matte, pearl and AMC.


Rs. 300 (I bought it at 25% discount).

violet eyeshadow


2.5 gm (round refills have less quantity at the same price).


It comes in a transparent plastic packaging, but we all know we need separate palettes to store them.


The eye shadow is very smooth and soft. The glitter is not at all chunky. It’s very easy to blend.


Staying Power:

I loved its staying power. It stayed on my oily eyelids for 3-4 hours without any creasing. Staying power can definitely be increased by applying a good eye shadow base underneath it. The glitter didn’t fall on my lower eyelids or spread to my entire eyelid after 3 hours.

My Experience with Inglot DS 491 Eyeshadow:

I loved it. The shade is very well pigmented; the glitter doesn’t look odd at all. I apply it as a lid color. It stays on eyelids for 3-4 hours without creasing. There’s a slight fall out while applying but once applied, it’s all set. It can be worn at night parties but might be a bit difficult to wear at daytime due to glitter.

Now, the swatches:
