First of all, Wishing You All A Very Happy yet belated Rakshabandhan. Hope you all enjoyed this day with your brothers and sisters 🙂 Today, I am going to review my very first lipstick from Inglot, which is shade 218. I got this one quite a long time back, even before I started using their lipstick refills. To begin the story, about half-a-year ago, I was roaming around with my sister in Infinity Mall, Mumbai and of course, we visited the Inglot store.
As usual, it began with swatching of eyeshadows and lipstick refills, but since they do not sell refills without buying their palette, I wasn’t too keen to spend thousands of bucks just on palettes, so my attention went towards their lipstick section. They have such a huge variety of shades that to swatch each and every shade and then to choose the right one would be next to impossible in a day! Also, being in Inglot store is like leaving a child alone in a candy store where obviously the child would like to have all the candies 🙂 So, I pulled one SA and requested her to show me some daily wear shades which belong to the MLBB type, especially since I was looking for something which I can wear to office every day.
She showed me a few shades out of which I narrowed down to 218 and boy, I am loving it. So, let’s get started with the review:
- Vitamin E and apricot kernel oil moisturising formula.
- Solid and elegant metal case.
- Paraben free formula.
- Not tested on animals.
Rs. 500 for 4.5 g/0.16 US Oz.
I love the packaging! The lipstick comes in a shiny, black metal case and feels so sexy and classy! It feels like a “Bond girl” lipstick :P, totally gorgeous! The cap fits in tight, so its perfect for travelling as well. I always have this one in my handbag, so I can vouch for the safety.
The lipstick even though described as matte is quite moisturizing. In fact, it does not feel matte at all. Also, at the same time, its not glossy. The texture is creamy and just glides on the lips. I don’t feel the need to use a lip balm underneath.
My Experience with Inglot Lipstick in shade #218:
This is my perfect MLBB shade! It is just “my lips but better shade.” Looks totally natural on me and matches my lip color perfectly. The shade is a gorgeous mix of pink and brown and is muted and perfect for everyday wear. I would highly recommend these to office-going girls who want to look polished but without much color. The staying power is decent and stays on me for about 4+ hours with meals in between. Honestly, I don’t mind re-applying the lipstick again 🙂
This shade will suit medium to dusky skin tones perfectly, but I would not recommend it if you are having highly pigmented lips. I use it above my lip liner just for increasing the staying power. It does not bleed or settle in fine lines. In all, I am loving this shade and will definitely recommend to everyone!
FOTD – Please excuse dull pics again as my camera is not picking up the shade well, but in real, its very flattering!
