“Love. It’s a beautiful thing. Let’s fall in love and write our own story.” I am always living in fascination when it comes to love. To me, love is a beautiful feeling. When you are in love, flowers blossom everywhere and all you see is yourself and your partner, hand in hand, sauntering through the sunset. Recently, Inglot Singapore launched their latest collection – Fall In Love. The collection revolves around 5 new shades that’ll take you on a romantic ride through the sunset/sunrise.
The collection is inspired by nature and emotions and every shade is spiced with metallic accents. The 3 key products launched in the 5 shades include the signature AMC eyeliner gel, single eyeshadows and nail enamel.

The 5 metallic shades developed for this collection include:
Soft golden orange
Bright purplish blue
(These nail polishes allow the nails to “breathe”. Aren’t the shades gorgeous?)
For the AMC Eyeliner Gel range, the mauve-taupe shade is replaced with a vibrant violet for some reason. I thought it would be nice if all 5 shades were developed exactly in the 3 product ranges.
For the purpose of the review, Inglot has kindly given me the 5 eyeshadows housed in the Freedom System Palette to play with! I couldn’t resist the AMC Gel Eyeliner in 98 (greyish teal), thus I had to bring it home as well. The shades as usual, are being labelled with their respective numbers, though it would be a lot better if they were named after the inspiration behind them (e.g. 157 as “Romantic Sunset”). I know some people like it numbered for easy reference but that’s just my personal take.
The eyeshadows, as usual, are dense, smooth, easy to blend and highly pigmented except for 159. 159 is a bright periwinkle shade which looks vibrant on the pan but when applied, it came off rather sheer and more purple than it looks. This was probably the only shade that I had problems with in terms of pigmentation. I do love the way it blends to give a softer look though.
Regarding the 5 shades, they remind me of colours in a sunset/sunrise. The orange sheen in 157 resembles the sun so much that when combined with the blue-green tones like 158 and 159, they form the colour spectrum you see when the sun rises/sets. Romantic, indeed.

And here is the makeup look I recently wore, featuring all 5 eyeshadows in the Fall In Love collection and an Inglot lipstick in 139 (a strawberry pink). You can see that from the front view, the shades are subtly portraying the romantic feel that it’s supposed to give off. I like how the teal and periwinkle shades give a pop of colour to the eyes when placed in the lower lash line.
My inspiration came from the picturesque and idyllic sunset scene that I was imagining. I placed 156 (warm brown) in the crease, followed by a gradient between 157 (soft golden orange) and 160 (mauve-taupe) to depict a sunset. I completed the look by dragging the 2 cool tones, 158 (greyish teal) and 159 (bright purplish blue), onto my lower lash line to represent the cool and calm waters on a beach.
In my opinion, this can be an everyday makeup look for work or for school, minus the cool blues in the lower lash line. I wanted a bubbly and cute look thus I decided to incorporate all 5 shades into my makeup!

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I loved writing it, especially creating the makeup look and photographing it! 🙂 If you are new to eyeshadows, I would recommend getting shades 156, 157 and 160 to start off. They are reasonably priced at $12-15 per eyeshadow and each pan carries a ton of product that’ll probably last you a few years.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
