[Product Review] Inglot Lipstick #175 (Dark Wine Red)

20151025-DSC_0572

Let’s take a break from fashion and OOTDs this week and talk beauty. Although I love dark lips for fall, I find it hard to pull of super dark colours against my pale skin tone. Mostly because if I have dark lips, people probably think I’m gothic or something like that (it’s definitely not something I want to be associated with at work). Also since I have strong eye makeup everyday, it could be seen as TOO MUCH going on if you have BOTH strong eyes and lips.

Be cautioned that when using dark lipstick I would strongly advise using a lip brush instead of just the lipstick itself, because it will be less likely for you to make an error and have to erase EVERYTHING.

After lots of searching, I think this Inglot colour is the darkest and most wearable wine red colour I could use. Don’t fret, the product may look almost black in colour but when applied it is much lighter.

The lipstick formula isn’t as creamy as I would have hoped, so it did require a few more applications so my lips wouldn’t look patchy like a Dalmatian. A lip brush would definitely help with filling in the gaps without over-applying. From my experience, the worst thing about over-applying lipstick is it feels like you have a layer of paint stuck on your lips instead of it feeling sheer and natural. (GROSS!)

PRODUCT: INGLOT LIPSTICK #175 ($19)

All in all this lipstick colour is an A for me but the texture is a B as it was kind of a let down with its sticky application and spottiness, but with a lip liner it could work and the stickiness subsides after time. Overall I’ll give it a B+ because I like this colour and would wear it out on the weekends or afterwork, but I don’t think I would repurchase it again because I wouldn’t really see myself using it too often. Only in the fall and only for night events, but if you’re looking for a dark wine colour this is the one for you and it’s not too much of an investment!

If you live in Toronto, there is a store close to the Eaton’s Centre.

P.S. If you’re wondering where the necklace is from, I got it at Express in the summer, so it probably is no longer available in store. A similar one can be found here and here.
