I remember the first time I ever thought about purchasing any lipsticks from Inglot. I was having a conversation with another makeup artist who, had gone to NY and stopped by Inglot before heading to the airport to return home. She told me how she purchased only one color because even though she had heard good things about the company, she still wanted to try it out for herself. Turns out that she loved the lipstick so much she has since replaced all of the lipsticks in her kit with the lipstick palettes from Inglot!
It was then that I decided that I simply MUST try some of these lipsticks for myself! You know that feeling that you get when you hear someone so excited about something that it makes you want to try it as well?! lol
I searched the internet looking for some nice clear swatches of colors but found myself coming across the same shades. I finally just said forget it and purchased the shades I was interested in. Besides, if I didn't like it for myself, I could always use them in my kit.
So I purchased my lip palettes and put up the swatches.....and I was so excited about finally getting my swatches up that I forgot to tell you my thoughts on them! So here we go......
The lipsticks come in a variety of textures from cream, to frost, and i have one texture which I think looks like the baby of a frost & a lustre, with the payoff of a cream....magnificent!
As with many lipsticks this varies, depending on what and how often you eat or drink. I have noticed that when I wear these lipsticks the color goes on smooth, and silky. Not too thick, and has a nice slip to it, BUT not so much slip that I feel like it's going to slide off my lip! On an average day of wear I have yet to re-apply this lipstick, (now granted I always prep the lips with MAC Prep + Prime Lip). I find that enough of the color and product remains that I may simply just touch up my gloss, and I'm good.
As with the other Inglot products I have tried.....the color you SEE is the color you GET. No surprises here. You can sheer the color down if you would like, by adding a gloss or lip conditioner, to the product, or to your lips before application. The strong color payoff of these lip colors may be another reason why they wear so well.

I hope this information is helpful to you all. In the future I hope to swatch & provide a little more info at the same time. But if I don't please forgive me! I will get around to it. =)
Have a great day!
