I was in Cork last week and I payed a visit to Inglot in Mahon Point for a lipstick. The fact I came out with two was surprising as it took me ages to decide on which lipsticks I wanted because they had such a mind-boggling collection. The two lipsticks that I am after adding to my makeup bag are “420” and “231”. These lipsticks come in a black shiny metal case which makes them very attractive and the smell off these lipsticks are amazing!
231 – This is a peachy,pinky, coral colour. It has a creamy matte finish which is great for dry lips! The pigmentation is gorgeous, With a single swipe of this lipstick gives a pretty peachy colour (nice for daytime) whereas more than one swipe (2-3 swipes) make it a neon-ish fluorescent coral (nice for evening wear). I really like this colour especially in the summer time.
420 – I went head over heels for this colour!! It is a bright, playful and such a unique colour, a real head turner.. The pigment is gorgeous with this lipstick to it can be worn lightly on a daily basis or can be swiped 2-3 times for building up the shade. I find it tends to look more on the pink side when applied once but when building up the colour its more lilac/mauve. As it is a dry matte formula I would advise against using it with chapped lips.
These lipsticks are €15 and Inglot products can be bought online here . The best things is there is free delivery when you spend over €60 so go on over!! The only thing I wish for is if Inglot had names for there product rather than saying “Im wearing 420” but there is no other complaints, I love this brand!
