When I first visited Inglot’s only UK store in London Westfield in 2008 (now there is one open in Cambridge), I never imagined it would bridge the gap between high end and high street cosmetics. The Polish brand has definitely injected some fun into make-up with the versatility and flexibility of its freedom palettes. Their other popular range is (I would hazard a guess) the gel eyeliners. I love to hate them – they dry up and crack down the middle within a short period of time, yet when it comes to the intensity of them, they win hands down above some of the big names like MAC’s Black Track.
I blogged about this problem last year but have since figured out a way to preserve the gel liners by keeping the paper sealant on under the lid. Bizarrely it prolongs the life of the gel liner by locking in the moisture whereas the lid alone did not help. So, there you are.
On my last visit, I bought these two beautiful gel liners from Inglot’s Noble Collection. There are four shades in total – silver (92), lilac (93), gold (95) and a pinkish/rose (94). Prreeeecioussssss! I came away with the gold and pink.
I’ve used several colours from Inglot’s matte range of gel eyeliners and they are all smooth, highly pigmented, easy to apply and water-proof so it is no surprise these metallic gel liners are of the same high standard. In fact, they feel more creamy and softer than the regular gel liners.
The formula dries in about a minute, is waterproof, smudge-proof and crease-proof. Wear it on its own as an eyeliner or (my preference) as an eye colour base to elaborate an intense look, as I did for a wedding recently with the gold one.
I packed a gold powdery eyeshadow on top of the gold gel liner. The picture above was taken after nine hours following application.
I’ve not used the pink one yet but I hazard a guess it will work amazingly well with Urban Decay’s Naked 3 or indeed the other Naked palettes.
Inglot’s gel liners are priced at £10 and are available online too.
