Inglot Opens U.S. Flagship in Tysons Corner
Inglot Cosmetics opened its U.S. flaghip store in Tysons Corner Center, 1961 Chain Bridge Road, McLean, last Friday.
I was invited to the launch party and grand opening, and got to know the brand on a more personal level. The company has been in business for 30 years and originates from Poland. It is no stranger to New York Fashion Week and Broadway shows. It has stores at the some of the hottest places too, such as Times Square and the Dubai Mall. If you don’t get to travel much to those locations, you can now check them out locally.
Kenya Pierce, co-president and COO of Voulez Beauté, which owns the Tysons Corner Center Inglot, stressed the importance of the brand’s use of natural ingredients that do not leave your skin irritated. She also said that Inglot’s products are made with the highest quality ingredients one can find, while still being very affordable. Who is not a fan of designer brand quality at a price that will not break the bank? The healthy mindset of this brand also spreads to the palettes their makeup comes in since they are eco-friendly and reusable as well as functional.
The palettes use the company’s Freedom System, which uses magnets to stay closed, but can easily be opened by pulling on the top of the palette. Inside the reusable palette, you can mix, match, and intermingle most shades of eye shadows, powders, blushes and lipsticks, along with concealers, eyebrow products and cream perfumes as long as they are the same shape and size. This functionally comes in handy when you can only fit one makeup product into your tiny handbag as you head off to a gala. With the Freedom System, you can switch out the products to be the three you have on, so that you can reapply through the night if necessary. No need to have to buy another palette that is smaller or that has the exact colors you want. The palettes can hold from one to 40 products. It really does mix efficiency with functionality.
Along with having makeup products of the highest pigmentation that are scientifically proven to be safe with their unique formulations, the company gives back. It sponsors non-profit initiatives that aim to grow women’s empowerment.
With up to about 400 shades of colors, its nail polishes are a perfect example of the standards the company sets for its products, 95 percent of which are manufactured at its own state-of-the-art facility in Poland. The nail enamel has a high gloss with a quick drying time. It does not include toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor, which are known to be toxic but used in most nail polishes.
