I intially walked passed Inglot (and ended up poorer for going inside..)

I got  AMC lipgloss in 541, Eyeliner Gel in 77 (matte black) and a 10 (square) eyeshadow palette from the Freedom System. 
Firstly the palette; I love the fact you can chose your own colours to put in the case, and there are so many to decide between. Also if you run out of a colour you can buy them separately ($12 for square; $10 for round) The best value for money is the 10 square palette, there more product for a few dollars more.  ($85 for square; $82 for round)   I did attempt to move the shadows around in the palette; but after scraping one pretty badly I left them as they were put in. I had to mainly guess (with the help of google) and try to remember what each shadow was numbered due to the numbers being underneath the pan.  The pigmentation is beyond fantastic, with a eyeshadow base they can last all day!  I wanted a red in this palette but a little afraid and ignorant on how to actually wear red (outside of Halloween)  449 is pinky red, helped by the pearl finish, it's a really pretty color. The girl at the counter told me not to wear it in the inside corner, and paired it up with 488 for a softer look.  The staff are always so helpful and although I've asked many stupid questions they've always given a good answer in such a way not to make me feel like a complete dunce.                               

Top row, 449, 488, 444, 68, 63; Bottom row, 27 72 454 491, 61

The Eyeliner Gel is fantastic!! Great pigmentation, such a solid black!!! You only need a smidge for a great line, and no irritations along the water line either.  Another tip I picked up from the staff is to "set" the eyeliner with the matte black eyeshadow.
As for the lipgloss I should have bought this colour initially, though it looks less impressive in the bottle it's great on the lips, not over bearing but every now and then a bright flash of violet!! once again same formula as my previous one.

Needless to say I will be going back to Inglot, my love affair with their freedom system has only just begun!
