Inglot 420 Lipstick | Product Review


I found this lippy about a year ago while traveling through Europe.

I fell head over heels with the color and went on a mad hunt to find it all throughout London. 
My scavenger hunt was unsuccessful and I returned back home to South Africa Inglot-less - and for a full year I never did stop my search for it. 

Earlier this month I ventured up to the big city and went strolling through a mall where I saw a big black sign with bright white writing: INGLOT

I could not believe it! Finally...

Needless to say I darted over there and scoured their  trays of lipsticks until I found my beloved 420 - which I bought straight away regardless of it being end of the month and having very little to survive on until payday.  

I had no idea how popular it was until I spoke to the Inglot rep who mentioned that I was very lucky to have found it as usually they are out of stock. It is one of the most talked about lipsticks in the range and on very high demand. 

It is a stunning matte, lilac color that lasts for hours. It is bright and playful; a real head-turner. I just love the lilac / purple shade to it and find it so unique and quirky. 

As it is a dry, matte formula I would advise against using it with chapped lips as it could enhance the dryness. Application feels slightly odd at first because of the formula but once you've got it on it is so comfortable. It doesn't come off easily, not even when you're eating or drinking. It sticks to your lips snuggly but isn't sticky - if that makes any sense at all. Overall - I really love this lipstick.

The packaging is classic and chic - simple and elegant.

It is paraben free and is not tested on animals.

It probably does lean a little towards the expensive side but because I've been wanting it for as long as I have.. I would have given an arm and a leg for it! 

So happy with my new lippy added to my endless collection.

A woman's guilty little pleasure... 


This photograph was taken in Munich in May 2013:


 And this photograph was taken in South Africa in May 2014, wearing the exact same clothing and the same gorgeous Inglot 420 lipstick. 
So awesome to see it one year later wearing the exact same things!! Wow:

Oh.. the hat was on during the course of the day - but during the dinner I took it off. 

I was have a seriously bad hair day too... I still am. Gah.
