This October we opened our first official store in the UK, Inglot Newcastle situated in Eldon Square shopping centre. We had over 500 people queue from 6am the morning we opened, so we have already built up a loyal following of #inglotaddicts in the UK. We have just announced two new store locations opening soon in Glasgow and another store in Gateshead Newcastle which will bring the tally up to 20 stores by the end of the Summer. We have more exciting plans in the pipeline and are interested in locations both in Ireland and in the UK in 2018. Inglot currently employ over 300 people nationwide.

'The official opening of Inglot Waterford - October 2016'
The exciting global brand was brought to the Irish marketplace in July 2009 in the middle of the recession by Mullingar natives, Geraldine, Peter and Jane Swarbrigg.
Peter Swarbrigg is Inglot's Financial Controller & Head of Inglot's Brand Developement for Ireland and the UK. Jane (janeinglot), the other half of the brother/sister dynamo duo is responsible for Marketing, PR and Event Management. Jane has rapidly become one of Ireland's most impressive online and social influencers with her Instagram following now boasting 35,000 and her Snapchat over 50,000. Last year Jane was crowned Girl Boss of the Year at the Gossies and also Trailblazer of the Year at the Shemazing awards. Recently she was nominated for Beauty Entrpreneur of the Year in the IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards and Young Businesswoman of the Year in the 2017 Image Businesswoman Awards. Jane presents a weekly beauty column on Dublin Live and is a regular guest speaker at conferences and in schools and colleges. Each year Jane hosts Roadshows across the country with hundreds of #inglotaddicts in attendance. The shows demonstrate different makeup looks with some of Inglot's Pro Team members using our highly sought after products. No doubt Jane gets her stage presence and showbiz personality from her Dad, musician and songwriter Tommy Swarbrigg who played with Joe Dolan & the Drifters in the 60's and went on to represent Ireland as The Swarbriggs with his brother Jimmy in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1975 and 1977.
Geraldine Swarbrigg has been in the retail business since the early 80's. She was responsible for bringing International fashio brands- Vero Moda, Jack & Jones, Exit and Aldo shoes to Ireland. Geraldine recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2017 IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year Awards.
The energetic Irish family have spearheaded the opening of 16 Inglot stores throughout Ireland along with a thriving online website. The Swarbrigg family are taking Inglot to the highest level in retail beauty and have many more exciting plans in Ireland and abroad this year.
The first INGLOT store opened in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre in Dublin, and, with a rapidly growing fan base for the innovative make-up range, in a short seven years, 16 new stores quickly followed suit including Inglot’s Pro Store located on South Anne Street, Dublin. The fantastic Inglot freedom system was something completely new to the Irish beauty market. With almost 5,000 stores located worldwide Inglot is one of the biggest cosmetic companies in the world, with some of its Irish stores in the lead, including Inglot Dundrum which have won several awards for Best store of the year across the brand.
Inglot’s ethos is to enhance our client’s natural beauty using innovative, high quality products at reasonable prices. The extensive colour range and quality product formulation has drawn a loyal Irish following of professional make-up artists, beauty bloggers/gurus and make up lovers since the exciting global brand arrived on the Irish market in 2009. Now gathering a cult following of Inglot Addicts, Inglot is one of the most popular beauty brands on the Irish Market.
Inglot’s 16 Irish locations have teams of qualified and creative Make up Artists on hand offering exceptional service and guidance through our extensive collection. INGLOT stores allow everyone with a passion for make-up to use the highest quality, professional cosmetics and applicators, skin-care and accessories, to perfect their look.
The popularity of our INGLOT products expands far beyond the reach of our stores. If you’re an Inglot Addict with a hectic lifestyle and can’t always make it to one of our stores, the online store will solve all your problems by delivering all your beauty essentials at the click of a button.
We have so many exciting plans for 2018 and we can't wait to expand our INGLOT family, and INGLOT addicts.
In October 2016, Inglot Cosmetics was awarded the highly prestigious Retail Excellence Award for Best Digital Campaign for our Pro Team Roadshows. We are extremely proud to have the Retail Excellence Ecommerce Trustmark and be recognised as a member of Retail Excellence Ireland. In 2017, we entered the competition again, this time we put forward our very successful Signature Collection in the same category and were again very lucky to take home the Best Digitial Campaign award for a second year in a row.
Maybe next year we could make it a hat-trick?
