Inglot HD Sculpting Powders Swatches & Review - Partial Collection

PRESS SAMPLE


Inglot Freedom System HD Sculpting Powders Profile

Inglot is one of my favorite cosmetic companies, but I have been waiting for years for them to release new pressed powders for contouring. I tend to lightly contour daily and slightly more heavily for special events. Personally, I tend to use powders a bit more often than creams. When I finally heard that Inglot would be releasing new sculpting powders as a part of their Freedom System I nearly died! Finally! As part of the Freedom System these come in individual, rectangular pans. I need to grab a new palette to put these in as I currently have them in a Zpalette, but I actually really like organizing Inglot products in Inglot palettes--so sleek and sturdy.

Their initial launch includes 5 powders--2 for accentuating and 3 for contouring. All have a matte finish. I have 3 of them to share with you today and hope to get my hands on the other 2 eventually to swatch and review as well.

Inglot Freedom System HD Sculpting Powder 502 Review

Product Type - pressed contour powder
Shade - matte chocolate brown
On the Face - soft yet firm formula with good pigmentation; can be built up in depth; recommend using as bronzer or for framing edges of face (not cheek bones or nose contouring)
Price - $15 (5.5g)
Where to Buy - Inglotusa.com/Inglot
My Thoughts - I typically avoid chocolate browns for contouring my nose, cheek bones, etc. To me, this shade is better suited as a lovely matte bronzer than facial contouring because it lacks the gray tone of an actual shadow, which is what contouring is meant to mimic. That being said, I really do like it as a matte bronzer and found the formula to be nice and blendable when used around the edges of my face. It is a slightly firmer formula and it is a bit forgiving on my medium complexion, making it potentially more workable for someone who tends to be heavy handed or who is new to contouring without overdoing it right off the bat. 


Inglot Freedom System HD Sculpting Powder 503 Review

Product Type - pressed highlighter powder
Shade - matte ivory beige (looks slightly more yellow in pan)
On the Face - soft and smooth formula; slightly powdery in pan but not so much on skin; probably best suited to fair and light-medium complexions though it is moderately translucent 
Price - $15 (5.5g)
Where to Buy - Inglotusa.com/Inglot
My Thoughts - I personally tend to avoid the Kim Kardashian contouring style with the super light plane of yellow-ivory under the eyes and heavy contouring on/around the face. If you dig that style, you should definitely check out this powder. Given my personal preference, I did find this shade to be too light for my skin and I think it's better suited to fair and light-mediums, but it really is a matter of personal preference to me. It is semi-translucent so while it did lighten the areas I applied it to on my face, it wasn't ashy looking per say. It's not always easy to find good pressed powder highlighters that are matte, so give it a try if that's something you've been hunting for. 


Inglot Freedom System HD Sculpting Powder 504 Review

Product Type - pressed contour powder
Shade - matte taupe-brown
On the Face - slightly firmer formula than 502 and 503; require a little more effort to pick up a lot of product, but not hard by any means; simulates shadows very well; probably too light for deep mediums or deep complexions
Price - $15 (5.5g)
Where to Buy - Inglotusa.com/Inglot
My Thoughts - When I think contouring I think gray-tones and this hit the nail on the head 100%! It is a lovely shade of taupe-brown that casts a soft, delicate shadow where applied. It was slightly firmer in texture than 502 and 503, but could be built up in color easily. Because it is a slightly lighter contour shade, I think it will be too light for deep mediums or deep complexions. Those who prefer super emphasized contouring may find this too delicate of a shade as well. For me, this was fantastic on my approximately NC25-30 complexion for a soft daytime look. If you're new to contouring or want a contouring powder that doesn't cast a harsh shadow this is definitely worth a try!


Final Thoughts

I think the formulas on these are very nice for matte contouring/highlighting face powders. I like that they're pigmented, yet semi-translucent, making it easier to build them up in color even for those new to contouring. Of the 3 shades I tried, I think 504 is my favorite for contouring and 502 is a fantastic bronzer for someone with my coloring. Due to my personal highlighting style, I think 503 is too light for a medium like me. I'm going to play around with it some more, but as I mentioned above I don't really like the Kim K contouring/highlighting style on me personally. I generally prefer to even out my complexion and then use a really delicate highlighter with a soft sheen on the highest planes of my face after contouring. I would love to get my hands on 505 as it looks like a deeper taupe-brown version of 504. 501 looks like a fairly light highlight shade, which would probably be best suited to fair complexions, though without trying it I can't tell you for sure. 

All in all, I'm so happy Inglot has released this collection and I look forward to eventually giving the other 2 shades a whirl. I definitely need to grab a new Inglot palette for these as I think their palettes are fantastic for organizing their Freedom System products, but these do seem to work well (as all of my Inglot pans do) with ZPalettes. 

What do you think? Would you try these new sculpting powders by Inglot?
