Inglot X Jennifer Lopez Event and Collection Swatches (July 24, 2018)



Make way for Jenny from the Block! 

SM Mega Fashion Hall quickly turned into a glam satellite birthday bash area, as July 24 was Jennifer Lopez's birthday, and the launch site for Jennifer Lopez's Inglot collection in the Philippines. 

This was an event that was so amusing because, you see, blogger age ranges vary so much. On average, the range  of attendees is 17-45 years old for most events. But in this event, we (as in everybody) found ourselves dancing and singing along to an afternoon of Jennifer Lopez music. There were some J.Lo songs that came out when I was still in nursery, and kindergarten! Craaaaaay!!! 

J.Lo really has this power to appeal to that wide of an age range with her universal charm, wit, and sensual beauty. As a brand that caters to people of all ages, skin tones (and even faiths!), it highly makes sense for Inglot to collaborate with her. Overall, this is a collection which I am so happy over, as everything is so apt for sun kissed Filipino skin tones. For those who are also looking for a good glow, this is also an exciting collection. 



 The Laverne sisters (behind the uber successful Laverne Luxe Group) shared how excited they were about this collection. They shared that this is a 70 piece-strong collection. They also looked back at how far the company has come, from Wojciech Inglot's humble beginnings in Poland after the fall of communism, to the present where Inglot is now a global cosmetics behemoth.

Let's all welcome the new Inglot girl, Andi Eigenmann! Andi has been in the news as of late for trading a busy city life for a life of simplicity in Baler. Andi shared that despite changing her lifestyle, she still loves makeup and is still the usual kikay city girl at heart. But what's different with Inglot, as  she shared, is that, the brand is so practical that it fits right smack into her lean lifestyle. She relies a lot on the Freedom System to be able to consolidate the items she needs for a particular trip or occasion. She doesn't need to bring everything everywhere, and can stick to just the essentials.

Sarah Lahbati shared that she loves makeup, and sometimes hoards. Sometimes Annabelle Rama gets overwhelmed by all of Sarah's makeup! Sarah, on the other hand, shared how much she loves Inglot because it's the healthy makeup brand. She found the brand to be safe to use during pregnancy. She also loves that the brand is cruelty free.

This photo was too cute not to post, because this is the moment where Andi is having a chuckle as Sarah is so tall, as well as the beauty queens present. The beauty queens were glammed up by Inglot artist Jim Ryan Jos.

They have 8 Lipsticks (Php1195.00) for this release. There are 4 velvet and 4 matte shades.

For semi-gloss shades, they have from L-R: J203 Dolce, J201 Hibiscus, J205 Flor, J207 Besame.

My faves from all the lippies are Hibiscus and Flor!!! I was impressed that they brought in Flor as it's a cheery coral pink most other brands will not decide to bring in to the Philippines. Pale chinita friends, rejoice!

Here are the swatches! There is a slight sheen to them as they are not matte lipsticks, but personally I like this kind of finish. Nothing against matte lipsticks, but sometimes, just a little powder in the formula helps the lipstick to be adherent for longer.

For all the Pinays, beach babes. and brown nude lovers out there, rejoice! Their matte lipsticks are so pretty!

From L-R: J215 Mauve, J213 Champagne , J217 Flamingo, J201 Brandy

And here are the swatches. I saw a lot of guests at the event crushing on these shades! They're perfect for sunkissed skin tones.

They also have the cutest Lip Gloss (Php1395.00) range! They look so cute in the swatches. My favorite is Soft Rose, because of course I always have to have the cute nude coral pink hehehe... 

Swatches from From top to bottom: J223 Goldilips, J221 Soft Rose, J225 Pinky, J227 Peach Pearl, J229 Burnt Sienna

And the most exciting part of the collection--Eyeshadows (Php575.00)!!! They brought in 20 shades, and they're alllll sooooo puhhhh-rehhhhh-tyyyyyyy!!! The eyeshadows come in a range of matte, frosted, metallic and glittery offerings. A lot of them are warm toned, with strong touches of sienna and ochre. But with the 20 shades, they were able to express the beach babe color spectrum perfectly.

I followed the way they were displayed in my swatching. They split the collection into two groups of 10 eyeshadows on the display shelf. I was not told about how the brand came up with this arrangement, but to me, I found the first group more about warm everyday shades, while the second group was more cool toned, and had the more exotic shades in the collection. 

First row: J307 Lilac Grey, J337 Pumpkin, J305 Ivory, J303 Deep Amethyst, J315 Sienna
Second row: J313 Honey, J319 Crimson, J321 Rich Gold, J301 Pink Satin, J331 Bordeaux

Inglot X Jennifer Lopez Eyeshadows First row: J307 Lilac Grey, J337 Pumpkin, J305 Ivory, J303 Deep Amethyst, J315 Sienna, J313 Honey, J319 Crimson, J321 Rich Gold, J301 Pink Satin, J331 Bordeaux.  


And these are the swatches!!! They are all soooooo pretty!!! As it is, the first half and the latter half of this arrangement are good ideas for color combinations in freedom palettes.

From top to bottom: J307 Lilac Grey, J337 Pumpkin, J305 Ivory, J303 Deep Amethyst, J315 Sienna, J313 Honey, J319 Crimson, J321 Rich Gold, J301 Pink Satin, J331 Bordeaux

As for the second group, this is how it looks like. They have a standout olive, copper, and pitch black shade. I feel that the olive is unique these days because not a lot of companies have been churning out green shades as of late... Their copper shade is one of the most pigmented I have seen in the market so far for satin textured ones, so if you're not into extremely buttery formulae, but want a pigmented copper you'll like theirs.

First Row L-R: J327 Charcoal, J333 Sheer Gold, J329 Taupe, J309 Olive, J311 CafΓ© Au Lait
Second Row L-R: J323 Walnut, J317 Eggplant, J339 Copper, J335 Pearl, J325 Pitch Black

And here are the swatches! Y'all can see how this is the grungier and cooler side of the spectrum amongst the eyeshadows...

From top to bottom: J327 Charcoal, J333 Sheer Gold, J329 Taupe, J309 Olive, J311 CafΓ© Au Lait, J323 Walnut, J317 Eggplant, J339 Copper, J335 Pearl, J325 Pitch Black

They also have their gradation HD Highlighter Trio (Php995.00)! I personally find this to be very very practical as you technically get 4 shades of highlighter. You can use any of the three colors, or mix them all for a 4th shade. You can also use these babies as eyeshadow. Since the shades in each pan are not merely monochromatic, it really is a lot like getting 4 visibly different shades at once!

Apart from the existing trio eyeshadows they have in the Philippines, if I'm not mistaken, this is also the first highlighter trio they brought in...

There are two shades: J143 Silver Dust, J141 Gold Dust

These are the swatches of each of the shades in Silver Dust. See! It looks like a light bronze, light gold, and champagne colored highlighter all at once!

And these are the swatches of each of the shades in Gold Dust. Once again, we have yet another versatile trio with a light bronze, light copper, and pearl shade!

Of course, this collection would not be complete without a good selection of their HD Sculpting Powder (Php850.00) for a chiseled look. Theirs is thankfully with a healthy selection. There are shades with visibly warm or visibly cool lean, but there are also neutral browns.

From left to right: J135 Cocoa 3, J131 Cocoa 1, J141 Cocoa 6, J137 Cocoa 4

And here are the swatches! I personally am most likely to use J141 for myself, as it's the right lightness for my pale skin tone, and it's more or less neutral. I dunno if it's just me, but the longer I've been in this, the more I start to feel that contour should be soft and very buffed out. I feel like we're slowly transitioning from very strong contouring as a look in itself, to using contouring as a functional method to add dimension to our look.

For those who want something a little lighter and with a touch of sheen, they have their Booggie Down Bronzer (Php1,050.00). They brought in three shades.

From top to bottom: J213 Soleil, J211 Sunkissed, J219 Sunset

If you're addicted to blush like me, you'll find unique shades to add to your collection with their releases of their Face Blush (Php850). I heard that the feedback for Rosie has been phenomenal so far, as it's something that looks great on sunkissed skintones, and is a unique subdued mauve. While I personally prefer cheerier shades like Ballerina, I get that there is a growing appreciation for subdued mauves like Rosie. I also understand that not everyone wants to look like a Matryoshka doll like me, and would like natural looking shades everyday...

For those who are into the Korean trend of intense shimmer pigments, they also released a Pure Pigment Eyeshadow (Php1,195.00) segment in this collection. There are 5 shades to choose from. I personally did not swatch these for fear that I might make a mess with the shelves. So I just took a photo of them side by side.

From left to right: J401 Silver Dollar, J411 Blazing Rose, J405 Celestial, J403 Ethereal, J409 Cosmic Glow

Last but defintely, definitely not the least is their Livin' The Highlight Illuminator (Php1,595.00)! These babies are the ultimate showstoppers, and definitely the ultimate must haves if you want to glow like JLo. These are extremely pigmented, bursting with soooo much light in every swipe. Aside from the eyeshadows, this was what especially impressed me.

Don't wait for tonight, ask your Papi to get you one ASAP!

There are two shades: J203 Luminous and J201 Radiant

They also did release lashes for this collection, and there is one kind. Their J801 didn't have a price in the Philippine price list I saw, but in the US website, it's $18.00. You can expect the Philippine pricing to be somewhere around that price.

They also released special edition freedom palettes for this! They did bring in the larger and smaller palettes, but this particular palette is Php795.00
