Inglot Freedom System Review…

October 8, 2010

If you haven’t heard of Inglot before, it’s a Polish company that was established 25 years ago and have over 240 stores worldwide including Dublin, London, New York, Las Vegas, Dubai and Sydney…you can check out full the list here. Oh and you’re missing out!

Inglot have been in Ireland since 2009 in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre but are expanding and a new store in Dundrum Town Centre will be open shortly…watch this space for a launch date! And for my UK readers, you can find Inglot in Westfield London.

One of the most unique things about Inglot is their ‘Freedom System’ which basically leaves you free to mix and match so many different products and put them into your choice of palette.  You can choose from eyeshadows (round or square – 158 different shades), face powders (20 shades), blushers (24), eyebrow powders (10) and waxes (5), lipsticks (90) and concealers (19).  There are all different types of palettes starting with 2 eyeshadows working all the way up to a palette that can fit 30 eyeshadows or a combination or eyeshadows, face powders and blushers and you can get them with mirrors and space for a brush or with a slide-off magnetic lid…so much choice!  The great thing about them is the price includes the empty palette…which is brilliant considering an empty MAC Pro pallete alone costs €16.50!  More comparisons on texture, packaging, price etc a bit further down.

So I finally got my hands on an Inglot Freedom System palette and filled it with all sorts of goodies! I opted for the 10 round pan palette and chose one concealer, two lipsticks, one eyebrow powder and six eyeshadows.  I love that you can mix different products together so you can put everything you need into one palette, alternatively you can keep things separated and stack all your palettes on top of each other as they’re magnetic…bonus!!  Being able to choose the colours that suit you and custom pick your own selection is brilliant because with ready made palettes there are always things you love and things you never even touch which is such a waste.

Now for some pics…


Inglot 10 Round Palette with magnetic lid


Magnetic lid slides off. Stackable with or without lids.

As a lot of my readers are familiar with MAC products, I have decided to swatch the dupes for a couple of eyeshadows…

I think the difference in the pigment between the MAC and Inglot eyeshadows really speaks for itself…these are one swatch on bare skin.  I’ve also added in a third swatch which is the Inglot eyeshadow over another Inglot product called Duraline (€10, review coming soon) which I’ve used as a base and it makes the shadows even more pigmented!

Here are swatches of the other eyeshadows in the palette…

The colour payoff really is amazing, they blend beautifully and come in a variety of finishes as seen above (matte, shine, pearl)…keep your eyes peeled for these Autumnal colours featuring in future FOTDs!

Now for price comparisons…one MAC Pro Pallette Refill pan eyeshadow costs £9/€11.45 which comes to £90/€114.50 for ten and the empty palette (which can hold up to 15 eyeshadows) costs £11/€16.50 bringing your total to £101/€131.  Now here’s the shocker….the Inglot ten round palette costs only £32/€42 that’s a helluva saving if you ask me….around 70% less!  And even cheaper than a MAC quad which retails at £41.50/€53 (approx.). Crazy.  Want more??  Well, for that price you’ll also get more product…the Inglot round eyeshadows contain 1.8g of eyeshadows, and there’s 2.7g in the squares, compare that to only 1.5g in a MAC pan and it’s a no brainer!

Other products in my palette…

Separate reviews for the concealer, lippies and eyebrow powder coming up!

Have you tried any Inglot products before? What do you think of the comparisons?

    Lived in Poland for a year a while back, and loved Inglot’s products, as did anyone that came over to visit me- great value and the staying power more than matches MAC.
    Hadn’t known there was a store in Liffey Valley, and delighted to hear they’re coming to Dundrum, too. My friends who have been desperately scraping out the ends of their eyeshadows will be delighted to hear about this!

      …and if you bring your palette in you can get refills too, result! Can’t wait for the Dundrum branch to open 🙂

    Love your palette! Gorgeous colours! I’m wondering what you think about the brow powder & concealer?

    I’m a fairly seasoned online shopper, and so far I’ve been pleased with everything I’ve ordered from
    You *do* have to do a lot of “research,” though, to get an idea of what the colors really look like.
    I find it to be totally worth it, though.
