My general thoughts on the eyeshadow formula are included in the first post in the series here. The rest of the posts are viewable here.
All swatches are on bare skin, no primer.
Man, I love purples. I only wish I had green eyes to really make these colours pop.

The top row: matte 325, pearl 446, pearl 452, pearl 445, pearl 440
The application and pigmentation on all of these is excellent. Classic Inglot - buttery, dense, excellent payoff. The matte shade is almost ridiculously pigmented, and by far one of the best purples I have ever encountered.
Bottom row: double sparkle 494, pearl 441, pearl 439, amc 67, matte 379
The DS and AMC shades both gave me the most trouble, in that they had a somewhat drier texture that grabbed onto the skin, making blending less smooth. That said, they are both still intensely pigmented, they just need more care in application. The microglitter does tend to fall out during application as well.
Pearl 441 has a beautiful, subtle duochrome effect - a gorgeous light violet that flashes a teeny bit blue.
Purples tend to be one of the most difficult colours to get right, so kudos to Inglot for making enough that I can easily put together a full palette of great performers.
