Hello Lovely Ladies, I am here with another review of my favourite lip colour and my most expensive buy till date. It is Inglot Matte Lip Crayon/Pencil in shade 12. Before I hop on to the subject, I must let you know that I am not a lipstick person.I stick to a bit of kohl and a lip balm even for an evening out because I become immensely self conscious about carrying off a lipstick, but I have always loved colours . So , when I decide to get something for myself, I prefer shades in nude or peaches that won’t by any means draw much attention to my lips.
Last year on a random visit to a mall, I bumped into an Inglot store and there was a riot of colours everywhere!! I had to visit it and decided to check on some lipsticks. The SA was immensely helpful and understood my need. She swatched a number of shades of lipsticks and lip pencils and I fell for this one. This was a bit pricey for my pocket, but I decided to give it a shot.
What Inglot Claims:
Medium, hard, matte jumbo pencil.Great staying power.Makes it an alternative for lip liner. Used by professionals for colouring lips. Moisturising properties achieved by the complex of lanoline substitutes and avocado butter. Paraben free formula. Not tested on animals.
Price and Quantity:
I don’t remember the price exactly, but it was above 600 INR for 4.5 g/0.16 US OZ.

My Take on Inglot Matte Collection AMC Lip Pencil
As I have already mentioned earlier, I can’t carry deep shades on my lips. So, this one is basically a comfort shade for me. The colour is very peachy with a hint of pink and slight coral (err, I know I am very bad at describing colours :\ ). So, better than describing, I will show you people swatches of it.
Left- 3 swipes, right – 1 swipe.
This is a very matte colour, very creamy in texture, glides like a dream on your lips and pigmentation is nice. I feel this is lightweight and doesn’t cause any irritation, but the most important prerequisite for this lip pencil is properly moisturized lips, otherwise, the colour may settle down into the creases and won’t give an even finish. Staying power is pretty good (3 to 4 hours even after a mini meal).
You may find this one similar to NYX/NARS jumbo pencils (though I haven’t used either of them, they look similar). You can always get a swipe of some peach/brown deeper shade to not feel like washed out. This is a perfect shade for day wear according to me and you can do a brown-black smokey eye look to go with it. When I wear this one in the evening, I top it up with a peach-coloured lip gloss from Nivea and I am ready to go.
The only thing I don’t like about this product is the cap. It comes off very easily and hence this is not travel friendly. Moreover, as you can see in the pictures, its an all black pencil, so its often difficult to locate.
Coming to the pros and cons of Inglot Matte Crayon Pencil:
