INGLOT! The brand everyone flocks to at The Makeup Show, is an affordable, high-quality cosmetics brand. They have over 240 stores across the globe; Seven of their stores are in the United States (two in NYC).
Thursday, February 17 Janique (HerGoodyBag.com) and I went to the Inglot New York Studio Grand Opening Party, which is located on the 5th floor of the Chelsea Market building with a beautiful view of the city. Between 5 & 6PM there was a private press preview in which makeup artist James Vincent gave a tour of the studio. He gave us a brief history of the brand; they’ve been around for 20 years, and their nail polish was used in Lady Gaga’s most recent video for her song “Born this way.” He also mentioned his favorite products, and how he likes to use them.
I also learned that the mixing station, next to the freedom system is the most common area used since it allows people to re-create their favorite product/color from another brand that may be discontinued.

This was a great event. We had the opportunity to swatch products, buy the products we loved with a 20% discount. There were different stations where you were allowed to get glammed up by having your hair, makeup and nails done. For people who wanted to have their finished looks documented, and show it off later they had the opportunity to do a mini photo shoot!
Of course, there were swag bags. There were different bags for regular attendees and for press. Both bags were filled with Inglot products.
My bag included a lot of items I wanted to try prior to attending the event, such as the Under Makeup Base, Pigment, Lip Paint, Polish, and lip stick. I will definitely post swatches and a do a review. Products that I have and do love are their liquid illuminators, gel liners, and eyeshadows.
I’m not really a fan of metallic polishes, but, I LOVE how this came out on me. It dried quickly, and three days later it still looks the same; no chips or fading.
Big thanks to Melody Joy PR for the invite!
