I first heard of Polish makeup brand INGLOT many years ago from my SIL Lorraine, who is always first to know about the hottest cult beauty brands and products. She described INGLOT as having the same quality as MAC, same great pigmentation, but priced much cheaper.
So when we went to Dada's friend's wedding in Kuala Lumpur back in 2011, I made sure to convince Dada to take us all the way to Sunway Pyramid in Petaling Jaya just to check out the store:

I remember being overwhelmed with the choices, in a good way of course! True enough, prices were reasonable and the packaging and quality was astounding.

INGLOT has a great story behind it.
INGLOT Cosmetics was established over 30 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a young chemist who dreamt of creating a unique and revolutionary cosmetics line that is both high in quality but reasonably priced.
Paraben-free and not tested on animals, the materials that go into INGLOT cosmetics come from only the most reputable suppliers from Japan, USA, France, Germany, UK and Italy. INGLOT cosmetics are mostly manufactured in Poland, under the strictest EU manufacturing guidelines, to ensure quality.
To differentiate INGLOT from the other makeup brands, Wojtek Inglot pioneered INGLOT’s unique “Freedom System” which allows customers to experiment with countless shades and combinations of face powders, blushes, eye shadows and lipsticks to create their unique and personalized palette. So you can customize your palette to only have the shades that you love.
Apart from their popular gel eyeliner, cream foundation and duraline solvent, one of INGLOT’s bestsellers is their Breathable Nail Enamel line is also revolutionary in that this was designed for better nail care by allowing entry of oxygen and water vapor.
Today, INGLOT has the most extensive color ranges in cosmetic collections across the world. INGLOT is currently in over 430 stores from Europe to USA, South America, Africa, Middle East, Australia and South East Asia.
A recent outpost is of course, right here in the Philippines, at the Ground Floor of Glorietta 5!

It opened last November with a big launch, and while I sadly missed the event, Martha Sta. Barbara of The Beauty Junkee, who hosted the event along with Pauline Lim, Hazel Lim, Michelle Lim and Stephanie Borbe, who brought in INGLOT to the Philippines, graciously sent me my own Freedom System palette to play with, through my good friend Jackie Go.
Whether you've been waiting for INGLOT to hit our shores, or this is the first time you are hearing this and are now curious to see what INGLOT is all about, it's time to check out Glorietta 5 and immerse yourself in a world of color that will totally just revolve around you and what works for you!
