Inglot Eye Makeup Base Review

Hello Lovely People,

It has been quite some time that I was looking for a nude-ish eye shadow primer because I already had a white and shimmery nude primer, so after much thought, I decided to go for the Inglot eye makeup base and I’m quite satisfied with my purchase except for the customer service at the store, which was really horrible (read cold and mean) except for one SA who helped me out.

My Take on Inglot Eye Makeup Base:

Well, to begin with, I had a horrible experience at the Inglot Store in Pacific Mall.  The two SAs’ at the billing counter were way too busy about something and completely ignored what I asked for.  There was only one more SA who was attending the only other customer and after she finished with her, she came in to help me out when I was almost walking out of the store. Anyway, she showed me what I asked for and I finally got the stuff and walked out never to walk in there ever again.


Anyway, I’m glad that I got this eye makeup base because functionality wise, this is the base I’m using more often than the others I’ve got in my kitty.

It is a skin-colored base and though it looks darker in the tub, it comes out quite neat on the lids. It is super easy to blend and a little goes a long way.  The container is an ordinary black and round tub with a screw cap.  It is very portable and quite sturdy.

After Blending

The consistency of the base is like that of a dried thick cream, which doesn’t budge from where it is kept yet, creamy enough to spread easily. It is devoid of any animal ingredients, so that’s another plus point and at the price I got it, it is total value for money.

My eyeshadows look more vibrant and stay for much longer. I tested it for about 12 hours and my eyeshadow still looked in place, though a little faded as compared to how they looked at the 6th or 7th hour, so I can say somewhere in between NYX and UDPP.

I am very happy with my purchase except for the buying experience. I don’t think I will ever walk into that store again, and wait, I just remembered I had a similar cold experience at the Select Citywalk store too. Has anyone else faced similar issues too??

Pros of Inglot Eye Makeup Base:

  • Blends easily.
  • Easy on pocket.
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Good quantity for that price.

Cons of Inglot Eye Makeup Base:

  • Available only at Inglot stores.
  • Only one shade available.
  • Shelf life should be a little more, I don’t think I can finish it up in a year’s time.
  • Inglot store SAs are very cold, if that is a con?

Overall, I’ll say it is a good product and worth buying in case you want a nude eyeshadow base.

Will I Repurchase Inglot Eye Makeup Base:

Never, but my decision has nothing to do with the product. It is only because I did not like the buying experience. I would want to buy a MAC paint pot instead.

  1. The product looks great Agni 😀
    you know what- I wanted to get a lipstick and gel liner from them but here too I visited 3 stores in 2 different cities and the SAs are so stuck up and rude- I told her in front of people that I was never going to buy from Inglot only because of their attitude….. seriously, they act as if they own the makeup industry 🙁

    1. Oh no….So I ain’t the only one…I was right then..useless to shop from Inglot then..someone like me who gets sold off on customer service, I’d probably never go back there… :-/

  2. oh i totally agree with you..even the SAs at Infinity Mall 2 in mumbai are horrible and very mean and rude :spank: :spank: :spank: these SAs behaved as if they are doing a favor on us :scream:
    wish this was available online as even I am looking for a good eyeshadow base and that too in skin tone and the swatch looks great! :woot: :woot: :woot:
    :thanks: for sharing the review! and i wish someone from Inglot is listening as they definitely need to have some good and polite SAs if they want people to visit their stores again!

  3. omg.. this looks very nice n price is also gr8 :yahoo: :yahoo: … but i just ordered the nyx e/s base… this has to wait now.. 😐

  4. yeah except one sa at the select city walk store i find most of them quite cold and not interested kinds. totally dont enjoy visting inglot. the product looks great agnibanya . thanks for the review. :)) 12 hours of stay is awesome! :yes:

    1. ya, I wore it in the morning, traveled for an hour , had lunch partially dozed off, went for a movie, came back home late night, and it was still there.. O:)

      Inglot SA’s should be :spank: :spank: :bash: :bash: :bash:

    1. Hey Neha… plz let me knw hw the SA in Inglot chennai ( EA mall?? :sidefrown: ) turned out to be!!! … Plannin to go there wen I get back to India… :worship:

  5. Now I’m just scared of Inglot. :tremble: I’m actually pretty shy in real life…so I don’t know whether I’ll be able to manage at the Inglot store by myself. 😥 😥
    But this is pretty tempting…I might just be able to muster upsome pf my courage and go to an Inglot store for it someday. :methinks:

  6. I was also looking for eyebase and as u said it sbetter than NYX.. I m definitely gonaa get this.. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: .. Hope with me SA behavee… :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank:

  7. Ohh the inglot in chennai has real friendly staff.. I love shopping there.. They’re very sweet and helpful! And is this like a primer too or do you need a primer underneath to prevent creasing?

  8. Awwwwww…its sad that you had a bad experience with the service there…However, I found the staffs of Inglot store in Forum Mall, Kolkata to be very friendly and infact they were so helpful in guiding me to purchase the right products. I was once comparing their service with that of MAC store in the same mall. The MAC staffs seemed pretty cold and rude…it once happened so that I purchased a Petite Pink lip conditioner from their store and while packing they gave me the Perfect Plum one instead.What the hell were they thinking??
