Yesterday I went shopping with the lovely Linda
Ofcourse we went to Inglot and spent some good time there
swatching and swatching :-)
I got some nice goodies as did Linda but I am very taken aback to tell you
(Dutch) Inglot fans that there has been a huge price increase on Inglot...
I got two freedom system palettes, a 5 and 3 palette and two gel liners
The 3 palette and gel liners are a birthday pressie from Mr. Morgaine
so you (and me) have to wait until 5th of August for those :-)
The 5 palette cost me 40 euro (was 32 euro)
The 3 palette was 24 euro (was 19 euro)
The gel liners were 14 euro (were 12 euro)
A 10 palette is going to cost you 72 euro (was 60 euro)
I was told this was due to higher costprice
As a daughter of a former businessowner I understand the need
of making profit like no other, but a price increase of ca. 20% in these times? Not good.
On the other hand the blushers and brushes have become cheaper
(but my interest lies in the shadows, alas)
Apparently I was living under a rock concerning the price increases by Inglot,
since I read the UK prices were increased as well
It really bums me out because I understand the prices in Poland (Inglot's homecountry)
are way lower, 2,80 euro for an eyeshadow, 4 euro for the gel liner
Next time I will think twice before making another purchase
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Inglot products and the great
people who work at the store in Amsterdam but
I am not too thrilled about these kind of price increases :-(
Anyway, here's a look with my latest (and probably last) Inglot haul
I got 2 red/purple colors, 2 lavender colors and a dark lavender blue
I will make another post with swatches and the numbers
How do you feel about huge price increases? Will those stop you
purchasing from a brand?
Have a great Sunday!
