Inglot Cosmetics was always at the edges of my consciousness. I’d come across the brand from reading various blogs and the news was always good. The problem is that Inglot as a brand is elusive! Other than its home country of Poland, we don’t hear or see many Inglot stores anywhere else in the world. My interest was most piqued by fellow enabler Tine when she blogged about trying an Inglot lipstick. I knew I had to have it!
She actually offered to pick me up one, but luckily it was about this time that I found out that Inglot Cosmetics is opening a store here in Malaysia. Yay! 😀
I’m told the Inglot Cosmetics store is going to be in Sunway Pyramid which is sadly for me, NOT a mall I’d readily visit since I don’t live nor work in or around the area. Boo! I do hope their next store or counter comes to KL city or I’d have to brave the horrendous traffic to get to Sunway 😛
I was however, invited to have a sneak peek at the products at the Inglot offices here last month so I have some pictures of some of the products for you! 😀 No thoughts on them, because there was no stock available yet. What you see in the photos below are all the stock there was available! So like you, I’d have to go to the Inglot store, if I want to try anything. Ready for loads of photos? Here we go! 😀
Since my interest had been piqued by the lip products, I naturally gravitated towards them. There are LOADS!
The texture varies from glossy to matte and there is a Slim Gel lipstick version too which is more moisturizing with sheerer texture. I swatched a few and I must say the colour selection is marvellous, and the texture is right up my alley. Lovely bright colours that I would wear! The matte versions did feel a bit dry going on my arm but we’ll have to see.
Selected swatches of Inglot lip products
One interesting item is this prismatic AMC lip gloss. Highly fascinating and I think it would be quite amazing on the lips, to transform lip colours 😀

My next obsession is blush so that’s the next area I hit up. There are powder and cream blushes and also liquid blush in a pump.
Inglot AMC Face Blush
These reminded me of the HD liquid blushes from Make Up For Ever. I tried the texture and it was light and blended well. I might be interested to try that some day. Otherwise, the powder blush colours looked a little safe (for me) and tended to be matte. Still, I will check them out. I’ve got to show you this Multicolor System Highlighting Powder FEB.

Interesting right? I’m told you swirl a brush over all the shades to use as highlighter or bronzer depending on the shades.
Eyeshadows! If you love eye colours, you’d love Inglot for their variety and range of colours! Did you see that first picture above? Look at the colours!
I was taken in by the very vibrantly coloured cream eyeliners. Yes, these are eyeliners! Dare you wear hot pink or bright yellow eyeliner? I’m not sure I would – I’m too old for this 😛 But I might be up to trying some of the “safer” colours.
Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel – look at those colours!
I liked the look of the eye pigment powders too.
Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow – beautiful shimmery colours galore
Just like MAC Pigment powders, these Inglot pure pigment powders can be used for a variety of uses. Use them on their own over an eye lid primer or cream base for a sparkly eyeshadow. Or mix them with a liquid available to transform them into colourful eyeliners. Or blend them and turn them into your own eyeshadow colour. I have some swatches here.
See how pretty they are? I love that shimmery taupe shade. No idea of its name, but its absolutely gorgeous in the tub and on my hand. I zeroed in straight on that! Some are more matte than others, but they are very good and you don’t need very much. If you are familiar with MAC Pigment powders or Make Up For Ever Star Powders, you’d be right at home with these. I haven’t used pigment powders or loose powder shadows in a while, but these made me want to dig up my old powders and play with them again!
What you might have heard of before are Inglot nail colours. The range is HUGE and the colours are amazing! There is also a range that is formulated with the technology used in contact lenses, so it allows oxygen to pass through and not dry out your nail. Interesting.

Also, there are nail art pens for those of you who enjoy playing with nail art.
Interestingly, just about this time that I was keeping an eye out for Inglot reviews, I came across a blog (forgot which!) about the Inglot Freedom System and yes, we’ll have it. The Inglot palettes in the Freedom System are magnetic so you can stack them up and they hold the individual colour pans. You can create a palette for everything from foundation, eye shadow, blush, lip colour and eyeliner which is of course perfect to take travelling! It all comes from a set range of products which is huge so there is something there for everyone.
Prices? At the time I visited, prices weren’t quite firmed up yet, but they are affordable. Face and Body products start from RM46, Eye and Lip products will start from RM38; Makeup Concealers from RM46; Blush from RM50; False Lashes from RM38; Brushes from RM28,; Freedom System empty palette from RM16; Freedom System refill pans from RM22; Nail Enamel from RM44, Nail O2M Enamel from RM62.
If you get the Freedom System palette, it works out much cheaper. It could even start from under RM100 for a filled palette but don’t quote me on it. It depends on what you put in there of course, but the colours will end up being cheaper than if purchased individually.
For the quality and the variety and the price, I’d say Inglot is certainly a brand I’m keeping my eye on.
The store in Sunway Pyramid is targeted to open on 27 May 2011. If you live or work in or around the area, and have visited or plan to visit, please share what you think of the brand and its products. I would likely not be visiting for a while due to accessibility. Boo 🙁 But do share your reports in the comments so I don’t feel left out k? 🙂
If you have tried anything from Inglot Cosmetics or like anything from the brand, please please share. I’d love to know what’s good so I can pick them up myself when I make it to the store 🙂
