Inglot Slim Gel Lipsticks

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 9 - 2010

Whilst up in London for IMATS, I had lots of trouble dragging myself away from Inglot in Westfield.  I was in there searching through the lipsticks for AGES!  Such a variety, but despite this… nothing was really catching my eye.  And then I spotted a small group of maybe 12 lipsticks off to one side, and immediately, 2 shades popped out at me.

I asked the SA to tell me about these taller, thinner lipsticks that bear more than a passing resemblance to the MAC Slimshines.  The SA explained that these were their new Slim Gel Lipsticks which have a lighter, more moisturising feel to them whilst still retaining a good colour payoff.

Sold to the lady with the mega dry lips!

I purchased #61 (left) which I would describe as a mauve pink… it’s a medium toned pinky nude on my skin, proper nude… not concealer nude.  I also purchased #41 which is a brighter, more vivid shade bordering on the coral *eek!*

I love both of them, they are moisturising… they’re also a teeny bit sticky, which does wonders for their longevity.  One application of these happily lasts me through to lunch time.  They have a glossy, shiny finish and I love the hardwearing metal packaging that houses all of Inglot’s lipsticks.

I do have one concern though… they don’t seem that steady in the tube.  If you do buy one of these, make sure you don’t wind the product up too high when applying.  I really think that unless you take considerable care, these would be prone to snapping.

Left: #61, Right: #41

I’ve also noticed that I seem to be going through the tubes at a rate of knots!  You only get 1.8g of product per tube, compared to 2.3g in a MAC Slimshine or 3g in a standard MAC Lipstick.  I threw away the receipt but I think I paid around £9 each for these.  So quite expensive gram for gram I think.

I shall forgive Inglot this time , these are beautifully easy to wear lipsticks and I’m very pleased I made the purchase.

    I bought one of those here (meaning in Poland) a couple of months ago and the pigmentation of mine is simply crazy, so I’m not going through it that fast as I just need a tiny dab. It’s crazy though how the prices of Inglot products differ between Poland and UK, I paid maybe something around 5 pounds for mine!

    Loving this coral shade that you chose :) xxx

    I really like the two I got, lucky I saw you at IMATS or I might have passed them by so thanks for that x

  3. Ahhh they have an Inglot counter in my local Westfield store here in Australia, but I’ve never stopped to actually peruse the products. I feel like I need to be made up and dressed up when going to makeup counters, but I swear I’ll make it there one day XD

  4. I love Inglot but don’t have any of these lipsticks. Thank you for the review! x
