Freedom in Beauty: Inglot
Don't be overwhelmed. There is a method to the madness.0
If there is only one reason to ever visit post-TRL Times Square, it’s to see Billy Elliot. But if you can brave it for a second go around, then get your beauty fix at Inglot. (Our theory, the Polish born beauty company inconveniently positioned their North American flagship store in Times Square to catch their most already devoted consumers – Europeans. See also: tourists.) But don’t let the tourists deter you from the Inglot experience.
The experience is a lot to take in, so read closely. Inglot offers both daily wear make up and stage make up with a philosophy of really getting to know their client. You may know Inglot from their revolutionary breathable nail polish launched on the heels of Fashion Week. Available in 46 colors, Inglot nail polish promotes nail health and smoothness by allowing for more oxygenation of the nail. Inglot also aims to promote skin care and most of their products contain Vitamin E.
Then there is “The Freedom System.” Any combination of powder, concealer, eye shadow, lip colors, bronzer can be specifically tailored to your taste using the freedom system. Choose your desired combination – rumor has it there are over 3 billion different combinations – and they go back in their special workshop then emerge about five minutes later with your personalized make up palate. Sizes range from clutch-friendly to all-inclusive, and Inglot prices are comparable to Sephora brand make up.
I bought the AMC Natural Illuminating and Glowing line of pressed powders and eey shadows, which have a shimmery hint and are a bit higher in pigment. For your brows, Inglot offers both cream and powder brow fillers, and friendly staff are happy to show you how to use either, where to fill in your brows depending on desired shape, and how to achieve different looks for day or evening. For your lips, try the lip duo (color and shine), which comes in candy colors and feels like butter.
