“Glides on effortlessly, without drag or resistance”.
“Defying traditional long-wearing lipsticks, Pure Matte will not dry out lips”
“Wild Mango Butter’s advanced moisturizing properties work to repair lips from dryness and scaling, leaving lips supple and soft”

|from left: Cinnamon Dust, Black Scandal, Arabian Night, Golden Olive|
Cinnamon Dust: A matte warm grey with subtle green undertones. It does have some shimmer particles, which I find doesn’t really show up on my eyes (ie ends up looking totally matte). Smooth texture, medium pigmentation.
Black Scandal: Shimmery midnight blue, incredibly pigmented and smooth. Words cannot express how beautiful this colour is. Just a note of warning though- the shadow is fairly soft so apply with a light hand otherwise you will look like a (stylish) raccoon.
Arabian Night: Sparkly cool-toned purple. fairly pigmented, and reasonably smooth.
Golden Olive: metallic duochrome khaki base infused with orange-gold shimmer. Smooth texture, medium pigmentation.
|from left: French Chic, Luxury Brown, Orange Glow|
French Chic: shimmery light silvery sea-green colour. Very smooth texture and good pigmentation.
Luxury Brown: metallic medium-dark rust brown colour. Highly pigmented and very smooth.
Orange Glow: orange gold (similar to MAC melon pigment colour-wise). Not as pigmented as the others, and a little bit chalky.
…and here are some swatches. Some of the colours are a little washed out (sorry!)

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.

Thought I would swatch my modest blush collection for you guys. I can’t seem to find my BECCA Beach Tint in Peach anywhere but I’m sure it will turn up sooner or later.
