Guys, it's November. Who wants to freak out with me? According to my calculations (aka the calendar on my phone), there are a little less than seven weeks until Christmas and guys, I have the perfect gift for the beauty lover in your life - or yourself. Let's be honest. Either or!
Inglot recently came out with three new matte lipsticks as part of their new Black Swan Collection for Fall/Winter 2015 and they are perfect for winter! Each lipstick contains Vitamin E, macadamia oil and avocado oil to moisturize your lips.
- #437 - a matte black. I'm just going to come out and say it: I never thought I could wear black lipstick until I tried this one. I know it's just a simple black matte lipstick but there's just something about it that makes it quite flattering. The formula on this lipstick is a little tricky though. The lipstick itself is hard. That's the best way I can describe it. It doesn't seem to effect application of the shade much (ie: no pulling, no patchiness), but when I put it to my lips, that was the first thought that I had. It didn't feel soft to my lips at first. Once the shade is on your for a few seconds, it kind of melts and becomes even more smooth and more wearable.
- #436- a grey taupe with purple undertones. I love a good grey lipstick. It's so different from the typical dark lips for the colder seasons but somehow still fits in. #436 had the same formula as #437. The stick itself was hard to the lips but it didn't effect application. It's just a different feel to it. Once the shade is on your lips, it feels absolutely fine and is smooth and opaque.
- #435 - a blackened plum. When I first saw this out of the tube, I thought it was another black or super dark grey. I was SO surprised when I swatched it and it was a gorgeous dark plum! Again, same MO as the last two lipsticks: hard but smooth and opaque once on the lips. I absolutely love, love, love this shade! On the lips, it looks pulls black but you can see the plum as well.
Overall: How gorgeous are these shades? I have to admit that all of them are my favorites and there were no weak players in the group! The consistency of these lipsticks took some time getting used to but they didn't effect the application of the lipsticks at all. I didn't experience any patchiness or pulling even though the stick itself felt hard to the lips. All three lipsticks were extremely opaque, smooth and wearable. My lips definitely felt moisturized as well! I would like to note that I think #436 is matte but #435 and #437 are more of a cream finish.
