7 Days, 7 Lipsticks
We have come very near to the end of the year. On its penultimate day, I am penning down this review for you. There was a time when my favourite colors were just red and wine…and pinks were a big no-no. It is thanks to IMBB; and seeing some oh-so-lovely lip swatches here, that now I feel comfortable and confident in using today’s type of shade. Today, I am going to review another slim lipstick from Inglot…which I first got introduced to here…on IMBB.
I am loving these and wearing these more so; since I know I can finish up these lipsticks. I know that’s not a good reason for buying lipsticks, but hey…What is a working girl, in love with lipsticks supposed to do? Especially if she owns a large number of lipsticks…and loves almost all of them. I don’t like lipsticks getting relegated to the back drawer, as each new favourite comes in. So, my new year resolution …tentatively is that I will try my best to use up all the lipsticks in my stash; before buying any new ones. Let’s see how long this resolution lasts…LOL!!!
Thin and stylish lipstick with vitamin E, evening primrose, and avocado oil for extreme moisture. This gel lipstick combines a cream gel formula with a unique long lasting shine and rich color. Application is easy and even.
Rs 850/- for 1.8g product (Previously Rs 680/-).
My Experience with Inglot Slim Gel Lipstick #60:
This lipstick, although not belonging to the very high end beauty brand; does have a very sleek packaging. It comes within a black box packaging…..(as with all other products of this brand). Also, the lipstick comes in a slim black packaging, with the cap fitting snugly with the case; and closes in a snap. The bullet has a slant tip; and the lipstick length and diameter is very suited for travel; as well as easy for application. It almost looks like the MAC Slimshines.
Texture: The texture is very…gel like I guess. It goes on quite sheer to start with, but can be built up to medium coverage. The lipstick goes on fairly smoothly on the lips; without any obvious tugging. It does not slip on the lips. It moisturises the lips and does not dry it out. On the lips, it comes across as semi matte..not very glossy at all. During its entire stay, it never bleeds at all.
Shade: This shade is very apt throughout the year; which can be applied sheer during daytime and built up for evening wear. It is a bold hot pink, with blue undertones. The shade is dark, so it will hide any pigmentation of the lips. This is also not a unique shade; you will get it across many brands. However, the texture and the lasting power makes me opt for this lipstick again and again; whenever I want this shade.
Lasting Time: Although this lipstick goes on sheer at the beginning; and is moisturising and glossy; this stays on for a fairly long time. Without meals, it stays on for 4-5 hours, and then leaves a stain, which stays on till I remove it. With light meals, the glossiness goes off; but a beautiful dark stain remains behind.
The only con I found in this lipstick per se…was the smell, a strange metallic…almost rusty kind of smell which is not to my liking. Thankfully, it does not last long.
Pros Inglot Slim Gel Lipstick #60:
- Sleek Packaging
- Beautiful pink with blue undertones
- Does not dry out the lips
- Does not bleed
- Lasts 4-5 hours without meals
- Leaves behind a lovely stain
- Free from parabens
Cons of Inglot Slim Gel Lipstick #60:
- Sheer to medium coverage
- Funny metallic smell
- No name to shades
- Expensive considering quantity for price
Would I recommend Inglot Slim Gel Lipstick #60:
Yes, if you are fair to medium skin toned…up to NC44 I guess. It may look a bit garish on darker skin tones, however this is my personal opinion and you should definitely try this out at the counter first.
