Upon arriving at the Inglot store in the Place Montreal Trust, I was dazzled with a vast variety of polishes and shadows. Truly a stunning wall of colour!
The Inglot Freedom System allows you to put together customizable palettes using their incredible selection of shades. The process is so ultra handy- when you decide on a shade you'd like to purchase, you remove it from the display and attach it to a magnetized board. I find this to be so incredibly fun and satisfying!
Here are the five shades I decided on:
Along with these shadows, I picked up the corresponding 5-pan Freedom palette to house them. Plus, a mesmerizing nail polish, which was a total impulse buy! Here they are:
The palette is so sleek and functional, with a magnetized cover that slides off and snaps back on. So satisfying to use!
And here's a shot of the eye shadows, sans cover:
The shadows I selected were:
407- a shimmery golden tangerine
31- a shimmery gilded mauve brown
399- a frosty pinky purple with gold shimmer
357- a matte, warm chestnut brown with a subtle sheen
339- a matte periwinkle grey
I really tried to select shades that did not resemble any others in my stash (a tall order!) and I think I succeeded! Here are swatches of the shades on the inside of my arm (MAC NC15 skin tone):

And as for the nail polish that wasn't part of my shopping plan but instantly stole my heart- the Dream Collection Nail Enamel #205 is a multi-faceted top coat with a golden base and multicoloured holographic flakes. Isn't it a beaut? So gorgeous in the sunlight!
And here's an eye look that I created using all five of the shadows in my new Inglot palette. I applied 399 on the inner third of my lid, as well as lightly on the brow bone and inner corners as highlight. I popped some of 407 on the centre of the lid for a flash of orange, then blended some of 31 on the outer third of the lid, smudging up to the crease. I then applied some of 357 to the crease to add some definition and finished things off with a touch of 339 on the outer corner. I must say that the effect was quite ethereal and fairy-like, while still being very wearable. I loved it!
So there you go! My Inglot Montreal experience was just as fun and enjoyable as my NYC romp and I am thrilled with all the products I picked up. Fewer things more satisfying than a custom Freedom palette! And I really find the price to be right- at $49 CAD for 5 shadows plus the case, I think that their palettes are an excellent value. Not a budget buy, to be sure, but given the quality I'd say it's a solid investment that doesn't hurt the wallet all too much. I'm sure this Inglot purchase will not be my last :)
Have you tried any products from Inglot? Are any of these shades up your alley?
