INGLOT Lipstick Swatches (Part 1): Pink Shades – #418, 421, 243, 139, 143, 194, 419, 244, 239, 189, 140
Beauty blogging has got its own perks. Until last year it was just me, but after opening up I’ve got Team VNA with me! And that not only includes the awesome contributors we have but the makeup obsessed friends that I’ve made in college who are regular faces on VNA now. Infact VNA turned those only-tinted-lip-balms-plz innocent girls into bright lipstick addicts! So when one of them wanted a bright hot pink lipstick for her birthday, we headed to the Inglot store in Select City Walk to swath a zillion inglot lipsticks before buying THE one. I thought these swatches must be useful to all you girls out there so I’m posting them here.
Now when I look at the photos, some of them appear a little red or coral. Well that’s because of the umm..shadow effect? You know when you got over looked in your childhood because of a much prettier cousin. Yes we have all been there. So these pink lipsticks are all pretty individually but somehow when swatched together, some of them loose the shine due to a much brighter fuchsia sitting next to it. So I’ve given some close up swatches below too. Let’s get the swatch party started!
I’ve swatched both: matte and creamy lipsticks. Infact these are all the PINK lipsticks you ever need from Inglot. The rest were plum or purple which I promise to swatch the next time I’m at the store. My next post would contain some red inglot lipsticks. So you see this is my new project – swatching ALL the inglot makeup since we only get to read reviews of the freedom system shades (which now come in square pans btw) and the awesome (and s lightly expensive) lipsticks get over looked.
From left to right:
#139: a deep raspberry pink
#243: a creamy bright magenta pink
#421: a matte pink with slight red tones (my favourite) I saw a girl wearing this fuchsia lipstick and dared a friend to ask her the shade. The girl replied “Inghhlot 421” and there I went searching for it at the store. Its not that bright as it looked on her but still is a pretty warm pink
#418: a matte bubblegum pink meant for very light skin tones
#419: a matte carrot pink shade which is quite similar to Mac Relentlessly Red and All Fired Up (I’m soo buying it!)
#194: a bright barbie pink shade
#143: a bright hot pink
#139: a rose pink shade
#140: a very creamy blue-red pink
#189: a matte dirty pink
#239: a warm coral pink
#244: a light milky pink for light skin tones
I want to buy atleast 2 of these honestly. The prices in India are a bit confusing since they Inglot keeps on changing them. The matte range was priced at Rs.850 when it was launched but it was later reduced to Rs.650 while the creamy range is priced at Rs.550 (I’m not sure though, so correct me if I’m wrong)
So these are all the pink lipsticks I have. Look forward to similar posts on red, orange, plum and nude lipstick shades. I hope I helped some of you in choosing your favourite pink. And oh yeah I totally forgot to say it..Happy Diwali! Mine was laid back as usual since we don’t burn crackers but I hope you had fun!
