Every time I look at my Inglot lipstick palette the only thing that comes to mind is ‘Color Therapy’ also known as Chromotherapy. There is some kind of healing power to this hue palette. Inglot is one brand that never fails to impress me. From nail polishes to lipsticks and the famed eye shadows, there is hardly anything that might fail to live up to the hype.
Today I am going to review Inglot freedom system lipstick palette in the shade 02, 16, 10, 69. If you are new to Inglot then here is how it works. Inglot provides lipsticks in the pan form called as refill. ‘Round’ and ‘Square’ shaped refills are two options available. Sadly only online stores sell round refills, which soon will be discontinued. These refills can be purchased with/without the palette online.
If you prefer to walk in to the store and like to swatch the product before you purchase, then get ready to buy an empty palette along with the refills. Yes, as per the new policy at Inglot stores, you cannot buy refills without palette. If you already have palette, and just want to fill it in with new refills then you are good to go. Not to mention, don’t forget to carry the palette along 😛 My purchase was from a store, so I had to buy palette.
Moving on to the packaging, square lipstick refills are individually packed in small black box, which is kind of cute. Unfortunately, the plastic covers are no longer provided with the refills, which justifies the need of palette.
If you wish to buy Inglot products online, you can find them here.
Refill: INR 400 for 1.8 grams
Empty Palette: INR 800 (5 holders)
Inglot provides wide range of colors to select from; approximately 90 shades. With so many shades to choose from its a fight within to let go of the ones you will not buy.
My take on the product:
All the refill lipsticks are creamy in consistency which makes it easy to glide on the lips with the help of lip brush. I find the texture of the lipstick quite similar to Mac’s Amplified cream formula. However, unlike Mac lipsticks they are quite affordable. Speaking about the pigmentation; two swipes are all you need.
All the colors I chose were specifically to suit my warm undertone. Shade 02 is a beautiful true coral color. Being a creature of habits I could not resist not have it in the palette. Shade 10 is a combination of pink and peach (in between color). Shade 16 is pink with brown undertone, which I absolutely love. The last lipstick refill needs no introduction, it is the most popular shade 69.
It would be right to mention, these shades might not appear the same on pigmented lips. To get the true color, concealer application is suggested.
Well good part about these lipsticks don’t stop here. Surprisingly the staying power is about 5~6 hours depending upon your food and drink consumption. At the end of the day, the lip color transforms into lip stain. With my past experiences with other brands I had learned the matte lipsticks are the best, if you are looking for long wear. But Inglot refill lipsticks, proved me wrong.
Tip: To keep a note of the lipstick shade you own (if you have multiple), make sure you keep a note of them at the bottom of the palette.
