Another trip to Inglot

So on Monday I went to Westfield shopping center with the intention of going to Inglot and getting a 10 pan eyeshadow palette full of very bright colours that I wouldn't normally wear. Normally the 10 pan palettes are £35, which I think is brilliant value for money anyway, but when I got there I was told that they actually have a sale on, 20% off! So I managed to get a 10 pan palette for £28, I was very impressed. Anyway here is what I got.

So as you can see I got some very bright colours, and a mixture of mattes and colours that are matte but have particles of glitter running through them.
I'm not going to do any swatches on this post because what you see in the pan is what you get, but if you do want swatches just let me know. They eyeshadows themselves are lovely, quite buttery and super pigmented. The only downside to these eyeshadows is that you sometimes get a bit of fallout.
I also want to comment on Inglots customer service as it is fantastic. All the Sales Assistants are very friendly and knowledgeable, and they don't have the stuck up air that some shops have. The lovely lady who served me remembered me from my first visit to the shop, which I always think is lovely as you feel like they are making a effort.
As for the freedom system, I think it is brilliant. There is always a colour in a palette that you don't like, and this eliminates that as you get to pick all the colours yourself. They also make lovely gifts as you can pick a mix of eyeshadows, face powders etc and make a really nice customisable palette for someone.
The only issue I have with the freedom system is that they products are not named. I have a pretty bad memory and can't remember what colours I picked up last time, and I was worried that I would pick up a colour I already had. Luckily I didn't but I feel like this is a mistake I will make in the future.
So yea, lots of Inglot love from me, its such a shame there is only one in the UK, but I am grateful I live in London. Whilst I was in Westfield I had a cheeky spend in Mulberry too, so maybe I will do a post on my new baby in the future....
