INGLOT Company was established 30 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a young chemist working in R&D department of a pharmaceutical company at that time. His principal objective was to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using the best ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers. All INGLOT cosmetics are produced within the European Union and 95% of them are manufactured in our own state of the art production facilities. We work with talented make-up artists and colour consultants to bring the latest trends in colour, texture, and form to the market. We constantly develop new products and launched the world’s first ever Breathable Nail Enamel, that ensures better health care for nails combined with excellent look. Our unique Freedom System allows customers to experiment with countless shades and colour combinations of different face products, providing an excellent opportunity to create customized colour palette. We are now present in 450 retail locations worldwide.
Back in April (I know.. sorry) I went to IMATS and had the pleasure of finally being able to see and swatch INGLOT Cosmetics first hand. To say I about lost my mind with love would be putting it mildly. Because I went on PRO night I was able to play around and swatch everything without a huge crowd. The next day when I went back I had intended to buy even more, but they were surrounded about 100 deep on each side, so I steered clear.
Needless to say, my lemming list is large with this one, so I thought it would be perfect to feature for this Makeup Wars as one of my Favorite Cruelty Free brands!
At the show I purchased the 10 Eye Shadow Square Palette Freedom System and picked 10 shades. I also purchased Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gel 89 and the 30T liner brush (not pictured) and the previously reviewed the Nail Polish in 201.
(L-R: 64, 340, 423, 06, 31)
(L-R: 482, 422, 12, 397, 344, 89 Eyeliner Gel)
These shadows are all amazing. I swatched them all above dry and without a primer on my arm. Even the matte shades offer silky and gorgeous pigment. They blend beautifully and actually last the whole day on my oily lids, even without a primer.
The Freedom System is awesome because you can choose your own palette of shades. I love this because I love neutral colors, but also like to be able to kick up the color every once in awhile. My only dislike about the Freedom System is that it’s not easy to get the shadows out once you place them in the palette. So make sure you know where they need to go before you place them in, or you’ll end up like me and start accidentally damaging product and using choice language.
Here are a few eye looks I did using the above Inglot shadows:
(Inglot shades used – 422, 64, 340, 31 and 397)
(Inglot shades used – 31, 344 and 397 blended over 89 Eyeliner Gel at the lash line)
Add a pop of colour to your eyes with INGLOT’s all new Colour Play Eyeliner, availabe in 6 vibrant shades.
These eye-catching eyeliners are sure to define your eyes while leaving a creamy, but long-lasting texture.
With the eyeliners built-in sharpener and windup-retractable feature it is perfect for those on the go. Wear with INGLOT’s already existing line of Colour Play Lipsticks and Colour Play Mascaras to add a more dramatic pop of colour to your look.
INGLOT Colour Play Eyeliner will be availabing in 6 vibrant colours: #201 (orange), #202 (fuchsia), #203 (purple), #204 (aqua), #205 (blue), #206 (green)

The glitters within this polish are holo, giving any base color a magical look. While in New York my Chanel Frenzy needed a pick me up to match the city a little better, and Inglot 201 was the perfect addition!
Inglot Nail Enamel retails for $10 and can be found online at inglot.com or at Inglot Boutiques. 201 is part of the Dream Collection.
You guys….. New York City is amazing. The trip to the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) was quick, but jam packed with good times. My step-sister Dinessa and I left Friday morning and arrived in NYC just in time to drop off our bags and go to IMATS Pro Night to shop. (Which ended up being the best idea possible because when the event opens to the public on Saturday and Sunday shopping is stressful and near impossible. We were glad to be able to spend time on those days speaking with people doing demonstrations, watching and learning.)
FYI: Maybe I got a little out of hand with pics, but this was my first trip to IMATS and my first event as “Press” so it’s a milestone!
Of all of the exhibitors I was especially excited to check out Inglot, since I’ve never been able to before, and am definitely ordering more online ASAP. It’s slightly addicting.
I also have a new found love in Jesse’s Girl and bought a few products to swatch:
As well as an intense interest in the brand Cailyn who do amazing things with gel liners and the inovative Vibrating Foundation Applicator. We watched the woman below transform before our eyes and become instantly 10 years younger with their BB Cream. Stunning!
We also spent some time checking out the products from OCC and the fun Hydrocolors from WolfeFX.
This is what I hauled from IMATS. Not nearly enough! I did got back with the intent to buy more from Inglot and Cailyn but it was just so busy at that point I felt like ordering online was a better idea.
Make Up For Ever Academy was doing some amazing thing with the nicest model ever for their exhibition:
And a few other artists (representing schools or brands) also showed off their skill:
We also got the chance to check out a few demonstrations from Vargas and Roshar.
Vargas has a ridiculous amount of skill and creativity. I can’t even begin to tell you how impressed we were with his technique and how he worked the products he was using. Vargas demonstrated Fantasy and Faces: Beyond Color, Shimmer and Glitter Applications. The way he so beautifully and easily applied glitter seriously made me think that this is just something I could do for every day. Which would clearly not be appropriate, but he’s just THAT GOOD.
I got some before pictures of his characters, as well as some during the demo and after photos of the demon sea creature
Before the demo:
During the demo:
Vargas used special brushes from Royal & Langnickel to create the hair brush strokes and flame effect.
At the end of the day:
Roshar is quite literally the most entertaining person I’ve ever seen. He’s completely self-taught, which is so impressive because all of his talent is within and truly his own. The demo we were able to sit in on featured him doing up a Fantasy Editorial. The end result was CRAZY amazing!
The only panel we caught was on Gaining Representation: Exploring the Artist/Agent Relationship. It was basically just a Do’s and Don’ts as well as what you can expect from your Agent and what your Agent expects from you. Which is basically be professional, know your place, don’t be a pain in the butt.
This panel was supposed to be moderated by Roshar, but at the last minute Kevin James Bennett swept in to cover. You could say I had a fan-girl moment because he pops up sometimes in the BBC and he’s gloriously entertaining and refreshingly blunt. I’m sad he had to run off right after or I’d have photo-opped him
But by far, our favorite thing to see was the Character/Prosthetic Student Competition. The talent was just unbelievable. The theme was OZ and the competitors had only 3 hours to work on their creations before the intense judging took place. First a few of the competitors working their magic…
… and the amazing end results (and, you’re welcome, because I took SO MANY photos of this I could have really spammed the heck out of you with pics… especially of the blue-haired guy and the ballerina):
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve likely seen a few of these next pics. In case you don’t here are some of my faves and also shout-outs to the lovely bloggers I met this past weekend!
First up, the bloggers! I first ran into Eugenia from Geniabeme and Casey from Beauty101 and they are awesome and hilarious!
Next I ran into Judy from BeautyJudy and she’s all sorts of adorable that I almost tried to bring her home with me =P
Finally, I met Xiao from Messy Wands! MY MESSY! Finally! Just as fabulous in person, BTW.
And finally just a few pics of Dinessa and I running around the city taking selfies
At IMATS Afterglow (some of my fave pics)
Canal Street #Swag (we are seriously still laughing over that one)
Nomming in Little Italy:
And some shots of our hotel room view & Dinessa checking out the view from Dream where Afterglow was held….
Also, while in NYC we had to seek out and visit MAC PRO, since we’ve never been to one.
And also hauled!
This is the haul from Sephora in Times Square:
Each haul will have separate review posts for each item as I go through them ;) Anything you’re wanting to see first?
Did you hit up IMATS? Did you get anything good or meet any of your favorite people?
