Latest lipstick love

As you probably know by now, I'm really obsessed with darker lip colors for fall and winter. During the summer, I tried to show some love to lighter, more 'nude' shades, but I think that, deep down in my heart, I'm a dark lip kinda girl. Let's face it, real nudes make me look as if I was going through a particularly violent stage of anemia.

So, after much deliberating, I succumbed and bought Inglot 'long' lipstick in shade no. 58. First, I just fell for the packaging, it's so simple yet classy (seems to be a rip-off from MAC's Mattenes?). However, the formula of these is also really nice, not too drying and quite longlasting, which is not something I'd expect from such a cheap product. It has no taste, a huge plus for me, but a bit of a funny smell, I can't really put my finger on it, though luckily it fades very fast.

The color is a deep, purpley pink and goes fantastic with blue items of clothing. I have a blue scarf and beret and it looks amazing against them. Because it's such an intense shade I do feel a bit self-conscious when wearing it, but have been getting a lot of compliments on my lipstick, so I think it's worth a bit of effort!

I highly recommend you check out this range of lipsticks, the color selection varies from nudes through reds to dark purples, and there's a variety of finishes available. Currently, I'm eyeing a darker berry shade with gold shimmers running through...

What's your recent make-up discovery? xxx


  1. oh man I have been DYING to try inglot!!! :(

  2. That is so pretty! I'm definitely with you on prefering more intense shades of lipstick. Do you know if Inglot is available in the UK? If not and you ever fancy doing an international swap let me know!!!! xxx

  3. @Whit: I think some of their products are great dupes for MAC, but some are just terrible, so it's a bit of a hit or miss :) xxx

    @loveaudrey: I think Inglot is available in the UK, certainly somewhere in London (?) - you'd have to ask Ondine about the details though. But I'm certainly up for a swap, I love shopping for swaps!!! xxx

  4. that looks super pretty! I haven't tried Inglot but want to if I could find it!

  5. what a great color...i've been playing with colors that are darker on the lip lately--nothing extreme, but a general move away from my nude obsession :) i wish we had this line in the seems like you find so many good things from it.

  6. I was playing with lipstick colors at the mall this weekend and was really loving the darker colors. They are so fun to wear! I didn't purchase any yet but I am making a list. Wish we had this line in the US!!

  7. @Michelle: Hmm, I thought I read somewhere that Inglot is available in Canada, but haven't really seen it anywhere in Vancouver!

    @Ane: It's a great unexpensive range to try some new things just for the fun of it. And some of their eyeshadow pans are seriously as pigmented as MAC! xxx

    @Kajal Couture: Darker colors really are a bit of a statement, I think you have to feel rather confident to wear them... or other way round, they make you feel confident! Anyhow, it's good to try something new sometimes :) xxx
