Recently I was on vacation and visited the Inglot counter in San Francisco (and then made a last minute pit-stop at the Inglot counter in Alderwood Mall in Washington) and I came back with the following goodies!
Top Row: 60 AMC (a beautiful marigold yellow with slight shimmer), 369 Matte (a neato blurple, perfectly matte), 134 R (three shades of satin blue) and 135 R (three shades of seafoam green).
Middle Row: 317 Matte (a gorgeous matte blue based green), 610 D.S (a bright green with gold glitter), 611 D.S (a deep yellow based green with gold glitter), 414 Pearl (a dark green with a green glowly pearl), 418 Pearl (also a dark green, but this ones pearl is more of a teal/blue glow).
Bottom Row: 387 Matte (a matte grey/taupe), 448 Pearl (a super metallic/pearly bright silver), 471 D.S (an interesting taupe-y brown with a green cast to it) and 402 Pearl (a pink taupe that is said to be a dupe of MAC's Satin Taupe).
And here they are swatched!
First Row (top to bottom): 317 Matte, 369 Matte, 60 AMC
Second Row: 414 Pearl, 611 D.S, 610 D.S.
Third Row: 448 Pearl, 387 Matte, 418 Pearl
Last Row: 402 Pearl, 471 D.S.
The rainbow satins were tough to photograph. They have an amazing glow to them that just wouldn't show up in photographs!! What happens, essentially, is that when you mix all three of the colours together, you get the middle colour (which makes sense!!) and you can see I've swatched that "mixed" colour to the right of the small swatches of each colour by itself. It's likely that my favorites in these little trios is the lightest colour and the darkest colour, actually. The lightest colour has the best glow (almost like a duochrome) and the darkest colours are the most densely pigmented. The middle colour (and the result of mixing the three) is still super pretty though!! I'm glad I snagged these!
As with each trip to Inglot, though, the downside is having to come home and rearrange my palettes!!! I *hate* taking them out of those magnetic palettes--I can never manage to not slip and gauge a few, which *always* makes me so sad!! The trick I've seen some people post about on the internet of using the magnets from the top of the palettes to grab at the corner of each pan doesn't work for me (I think they made the magnets that hold down the colours stronger or perhaps deeper) so I need to look for a stronger magnet to see if it works.
Regardless! Here is my full collection when I was attempting to put them into a new order. (I did move a couple around after this picture, but didn't take a final picture of each of my palettes.)
I have to say my newest obsession, and the colour that I have been getting more and more of when I stop by an Inglot counter, is taupe. There is just something so darn magical about taupes (they can be warm, they can be cool, they straddle different types of colours whether it's grey, brown, pink, purple, green...amazing!), wouldn't you agree??
Have you ever purchased from Inglot? What are your favorite colours?? :)
