This week, my uncle, aunt and cousins from Poland are visiting us. I was excited for their arrival because we have not seen them in two years and their kids are the same age as the kids in my family, so naturally we get along well. I was not expecting any gifts from them, but my aunt presented me with a pretty mint colored bag with INGLOT right in the center. Inglot?! I was surprisingly happy to see a gift from Inglot because I've never come across the brand in Canada, nor have I ever tried any of the products. However, I have heard many positive things about the company through beauty blogs and youtube.
The nail enamel (or nail polish/varnish) shade is 390.
They eyeshadow trio is part of the Freedom System with three mint/teal shades.
As you can see from the image above, the eyeshadow formulation is highly pigmented. I don't normally gravitate towards bright colors, but I can see myself using the darker shades as an eyeliner on my upper lash line, followed by a thin application of black liquid eyeliner. That way, it will not look as intense and it makes it more wearable for everyday looks.
I'm in love with this darker mint shade. It reminds me of Essie's 'Turquoise and Caicos', but with more of a green tint. In terms of color, I think I prefer Inglot's shade over Turquoise and Caicos. The staying power is long lasting and I've only had a few small chips after 3 days (I do a lot of hands-on work, so my nails chip easier than most). The polish has a glossy finish and dries quickly, so you can apply more than one coat in a short ammount of time. In these pictures, I used 3 coats. 2-3 would be ideal, as well as a base coat and a top coat for maximum staying power.
If I had Inglot available to me in Ottawa, I would purchase more of their products because they have a great color range and I love the pigmentation of the eyeshadows.
