AMC 63 (matte black): very pigmented and smooth to apply. It blows MAC Carbon out of the water.
Pearl 451 (shimmery dark bluish gunmetal): again, pigmented and smooth. A beautiful sophisticated colour for a smokey eye. This is my favourite colour in the palette.
Pearl 421 (metallic rust colour): In the swatches it looks a lot more bronze for some reason, but it has definite reddish burgundy undertones. Reasonably pigmented and buttery smooth.
Shine 49 (cool toned metallic gold): not as pigmented as the others, but buttery smooth texture.
Pearl 433 (metallic green-tinged gold): reasonably pigmented and buttery smooth.

Inglot lipstick #163:
This is a rusty red colour with a satin finish. It is fairly pigmented and lasts about 4hrs on me, leaving behind a pretty stain as it wears off. I don’t find this drying, but it doesnt really add any moisture to my lips.
It has a strong synthetic perfume-ish scent which I don’t particularly like, so those with sensitive noses may have an issue with this.
This cost me $25 AUD, which in my opinion is not as good value as their eye shadows considering I can get a MAC lipstick for $16.50 and a Chanel lipstick for $35 if I order from the US. ?

My only beef with Inglot products is the numbering system. I hate the fact that these shadows are given a number instead of a name- not only does it make it difficult for buyers to remember what they saw in reviews but it also cheapens the product a little.

When I first got my OCC Lip Tars in the mail, I was hyped up to the eyeballs from all the rave reviews from makeup gurus. I ripped the mail package apart in excitement, whipped out my lip brush, tried both colours on in a frenzy, hated them both, and angrily threw them in my drawer never to be seen again…

|The lipstick queen herself|
?I picked up my first Poppy King lippy about a month ago after seeing it on a sales assistant working at Kit Cosmetics. I have enough red lipstick to last me several lifetimes but the red on her lips was just so vivid and fresh that I had to have it.
It is a bright true red. The photos below make the colour look a little washed out (I have a lot of trouble getting true photographs of reds, not sure why) but Red Sinner is very very vivid and will get you noticed (in a good way). In my opinion it probably would look best on fairer complexions.
The texture of the Sinner lipstick is very unusual for a matte lipstick- completely matte yet surprisingly silky and does not dry your lips or settle into lip lines. It is actually quite similar to my Lancome Color Design lipstick in ‘Corset’ in terms of texture, and looks (and feels) as if there are silicones filling in your lip wrinkles making the lips look airbrushed and plumper than they were.
