A Tour Around My INGLOT Quad + Swatches

What a surprise, I'm back again with another Eyeshadow palette related post...sorry not sorry. But this time I am doing a long awaited tour around my INGLOT quad which I completed at the end of last month. If you're not a fan of warm, berry, golden, orangey tones then click away now!

Is this not autumnal heaven? Yes, I know it's Spring but Autumn colours are me, I am Autumn. The first three shades I actually picked up at the same time, and I couldn't decide on a final shade so I figured I'd save the £5 and have a think about it. I didn't realise that I wouldn't actually get the last pan filled for a good year, which was a bit annoying every time I went to reach for my quad to find only three shades.

Nonetheless, the three original shades I picked up were; 
 404 a yellow gold with intense shimmer, 605 a shimmery copper shade with very orange tones and 55 a brick red which is mainly matte. The final colour I bought to complete my collection was 607, a shimmery cranberry tone with hints of orange, which is quite possibly my new favourite. I do slightly regret not picking a matte dark brown however, as it would've made the quad a little more versatile.

Bottom to Top: 404, 605, 55 and 607
The formula of the shimmers is extremely soft and buttery, making them so blendable and easy to work with. Unlike the mattes, it really doesn't take much to get an amazing colour payoff on the eyelids with the three shimmer shades. 55 is definitely a little harder to work with, the colour is still amazing, but if you want it to be pretty opaque it takes a little bit of building up, but it blends out equally as easily as the shimmers.

If you've never made your own INGLOT palette before I highly recommend it! It can be a little pricey depending on what size you go for, but each shadow costs only £5 which is amazing compared to other brands like MAC, and honestly I think these shadows are much better.
