Happy 21 Dec 2012 everyone! If you’re reading this, it means it’s not the end of the world just yet. So why don’t we just chill and talk about makeup for a while? Have you done your Christmas shopping? If not, may I suggest something affordable, wearable and something flexible enough to suit everyone’s taste? Yes, I’m talking about creating your own Freedom Palette at Inglot.
There are many types of Freedom Palettes, from small to large, so I suggest you go have a look to see what suits your taste. The palettes are magnetic so you can stack them up (if they’re of the same size, of course). I chose a long one which fits 3 eye shadows and a blush. While I was at it, I got myself 2 of them. I wanted something I can reach for every day, something I can take from day to night and something I can pair with any outfit. Ready for the reveal?
I chose neutral eye colours which pair well with each other and kaboom cheek colours. One is a super bright pink and another is a loud red. Whoa!!! I am very impressed by the texture of my picks. They are soft and pigmented, goes on smoothly with minimal fallout, and they all blend beautifully. I would be devastated if the blushes didn’t blend, dude. Imagine having streaky pink or red blotches on your cheeks. LOL! Before I show you some looks in another post, here are the swatches.
For this palette, there is a highlight shade which is a light beige, and the darker brown and khaki pair well together or worn alone. The pink blush looks quite warm when worn, and a very light hand is needed due to the pigmentation.
For this palette, the colours might look similar in the pans. However, it’s a different story when swatched. There is a crease shade which also doubles up as an eyebrow colour. The lighter cool taupe complements the darker warm taupe and these two shades go well with the other palette too. The red blush looks very intimidating, but when worn (sheered out), it gives a healthy glow to the skin, as if I went for a run in the cold.
How do you like the colours? One thing about this palette is that it’s super difficult to get the pans OUT. I misplaced my receipt, and I wanted the reference numbers of the colours I got, and I’m still struggling. So just bear with me while I try to dig out the pans, somehow, if ever. I already made dents on my eye shadows just because I was trying to dig them out, literally. Inglot should make a little hole at the bottom of each slot so that I can poke out the pans when I want them replaced. If anyone of you have any tips, please let me know. Once I get the numbers, I will update this post again.
If I’m not mistaken, the eye shadows are RM30 a pan, the blushes are RM36 a pan and the Freedom Palette of mine is RM40 (?). Have you tried anything Inglot? What’s your favourite product?
