I’m sure all of you beauties have heard/read about Inglot rainbow eyeshadows. Their range contains neutrals, bright colours, and now some Double Sparkle eyeshadows. I wanted to share with you guys my review of the Inglot rainbow eyeshadow in 110R which is a trio of dark blues/indigo. If you have read my other reviews about Inglot rainbow eyeshadows, you can skip to my take/review of this particular trio 🙂
Where to buy:
I bought these eyeshadows from Inglot’s website. I don’t have an Inglot store near me (booooo), so I have to settle for ordering online. But there are enough swatches/reviews to help people like me 🙂 You can always try eBay and Amazon, but you’ll probably have better luck on eBay. Also, for some reason, prices are more inflated on eBay :-/
The pan is a rectangle and it measures 3.6cm x 3.2 cm. I’ve always heard these pans to be referred as “square” pans but they really are rectangular pans. You get 0.09 ounces or 2.5 grams. That is a pretty good amount for the price. The eyeshadow is labelled on the back part so that always makes my day 🙂 Also, their expiration is 18 months, as opposed to the traditional 12 months.
For reference, below is the average price and quantity (for a single eyeshadow) by some commonly used eyeshadows:
|Brand||Price (in USD)||Quantity (in grams)|
6.00 to 8.00 + tax
2.30 to 3.20
15.00 + tax
18.00 + tax
1.99 + tax
3.99 to 5.99 + tax
|Wet “n” Wild||
1.99 + tax
5.99 + tax
Price and Shipping:
The Inglot rainbow eyeshadows are priced at $8.00 + tax per eyeshadow pan and it is a superb price. Their prices did go up by a dollar a few months back but it is still very affordable. I love that you get three shades from the same colour family in a single pan! Their customer service is really bad (at least here in the States). If you drop them an email, you can forget about ever hearing from them. They basically just take their own sweet time and you just have to wait. It can take them anywhere from 7 to 10 business to ship your order.
My Take on the Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadow Rainbow #110R:
Dark blues are probably the only “coloured” eyeshadows that I use on an everyday basis. Also, since blue is the opposite colour to brown in the colour wheel, it makes my brown eyes pop, which I like very much 🙂 Usually, I opt for navy blue eyeliner or just use a dark blue in the crease, but blue with black can be used to create some very sultry smokey eyes. This is definitely a more evening/night-time colour. Also, using dark colours on the lids makes them look smaller and longer. So if you crave big, round eyes, stick to lighter shades for your eyelid.
Inglot rainbow eyeshadow in 110R has three kinds of blues. Here’s a short description of the three colours:
1) Colour 1: It is a beautiful true deep blue colour. It is the colour I of when I think of the ocean. It is very pigmented and it is not chalky or powdery. It is a great lid colour for people with brown eyes because it will really make them pop 🙂
2) Colour 2: It is a navy colour. It is also a very wearable colour. It can be used in the crease to create a smokey effect or simply swiped on the lid like colour 1. It is also very pigmented and I didn’t find it powdery or chalky.
3) Colour 3: This eyeshadow is a very dark blue or indigo colour, almost tending to black. It was a tad powdery but a primer can take care of that. It is also very pigmented. I think it is the perfect crease colour for a blue smokey eye.
Here are things I LOVE about Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadow Rainbow #110R:
• 8.00 + tax buys you THREE different hues of the same colour at 0.833 grams of colour for each colour, making it an amazing buy.
• The eyeshadows are not ashy or chalky.
• They are very pigmented and have awesome colour payoff.
• Since I depot everything, individual pans come out cheaper AND make my life easier.
• They last 10+ hours on me with a primer and about 5 hours without a primer (I have super oily lids).
• It says matte, but I find the finish to be a buttery-satin, which is way better than just matte.
Things I’m not so much in-love with about Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadow Rainbow #110R:
• Colour 3 was slightly powdery but still very pigmented and it had great colour payoff.
I love dark blues and I would rate this trio 4.75/5 for just the product, ignoring the customer service.
Blues are my comfort zone colours. And this trio of blues is just that. I find it easy to wear and I like the blue on my eyes. This trio definitely very dark blues and if you like lighter/sky blues, this is not the colour to get. These are almost navy-indigo colours more suited for the crease than the eyelid, but you can pull them off however you would like. I would suggest not wearing these colours during the day. They are much better suited to an official night out. The quality is amazing and if you like dark blues, I suggest picking this colour up.
Peace out! <3
