After my recent tryst with Inglot Lipstick #37 I couldn’t wait to try out more shades from their Freedom System. Today I’m going to review Inglot Lipstick # 2. What is with Inglot and numbers BTW??
Price: ₹ 300
Inglot Lipstick refill is a small round pan which comes in a plastic casing. You can use this casing to store the refill or you can buy a magnetic palette to store it safely. It isn’t travel friendly unless you store it in a palette. The plastic casing contains the necessary details like date of manufacturing & expiry, quantity and price.
Inglot Shade #2 is a beautiful and vibrant peachy pink with a strong coral undertone. It is slightly neon and is the perfect bright shade for summer and spring. The lipstick instantly perks up my complexion and all I need is a thick winged liner, loads of mascara(and no kohl) to complete the look. In my opinion this will suit fair to medium skintone beautifully but might wash out the dusky beauties so it is better if they try it out at the store prior to buying it.
The lipstick has a creamy texture which glides on effortlessly and does not tug during application. It settles into a semi matte finish which is not too drying but it tends to settle into dry patches and accentuate them. So, it’s better to exfoliate your lips well and apply a lip balm underneath if you have extremely dry lips like I do. Due to the semi matte finish it does not bleed.
Pigmentation & Staying Power
Shade 2 is well pigmented and a single swipe gives a good color pay off. It applies evenly and you get an opaque finish with 2 swipes which easily covers pigmentation of lips.
The lipstick is long staying and lasts put for about 3-4 hours with small meals and snacks after which it settles into a light pink stain. However, you will need to touch it up after a full meal.
Price & Availability
Inglot lipstick refills aren’t exactly cheap. Sure they do cost only 300 bucks but you get a tiny quantity (1.2gms to be precise) making it costlier than a MAC lipstick! However, it is great for trying out new shades especially the bold and bright ones which we might not wear often.
Inglot is easily available in major cities and you can also buy it online from Majorbrands which offers many enticing discounts from time to time.
