Inglot Freedom System Round Lipsticks 47, 63 and 73 -- Review

 Inglot Round Lipstick 47, 63 and 73 -- Review


No, there won't be swatches of the Inglot Freedom System Round Lipsticks here, no LOTDs as well. Wondering why? On my first brush with these lippies, I went gaga and I feel I won't be doing justice the the round lipsticks  if I did not swatch these separately or not do LOTDs. That is the reason this would be a review sans swatches.
I won these goodies in Pooja from Indian  Beauty Central's huge giveaway. I did not really expect to win, still luck has a mind of it's own. And Pooja, not only gave me the lipsticks, she also sent in a palette so that I do not have any issues in the future if I want more refills once I finish.


Why I went gaga?
  • I have never been fond of lip sticks that come in palettes because I feel layering becomes tricky and I love my lipsticks intense. But from the first application I realized OH MY GOD! These are soo pigmented!!!  Even if I don't layer it on, it looks just as intense as if I did so. I just can't explain how intense this is!
  • Stain: The moment you touch it , it leaves a stain. And by that I mean a really deep stain. Even when I tried swatching them, I hardly let them be on my finger for a few seconds. Within that time, it left a deep stain.  
But the good news is that, the stain goes away if you wash if with a facewash. So, it's not the kind that penetrates inside your skin. Ha! That's reassuring.
  • Due to the stain etc, it stays on for a really long time without fading. I have worn it for 10 hours and it did not go away. it was there in it's full intensity.
  • So many shades are available. I like the palette concept.You get so many shades. Plus, while traveling, you can carry a small palette or a big one and won't have to fidget around. Not only lipsticks, in a palette you can put in your essential eye shadow, eye brow powder, eye brow wax, and concealer. This would be the best while traveling. That way it is indeed a freedom system.
  •  I like the fact the quantity is not huge because I never finish up even half a tube. Even these would IMO last my lifetime.
  • the palette is sturdy and has in-built mirror. it is magnetic, so, if you want to place any other pans, they would fit in.
  • The individual refills come in separate packs the technique of which I like, In my subsequent posts I would show that

But there is a slight problem:
  •  The lipsticks are wet etc . But they tend to be  dry after sometime, unless topped with a lip balm later or if your lips are not moisturized properly.
  • Inglot won't sell empty palettes, neither only refills. the palettes are pricey. While MAC sells 15 pan empty palette for around 850 INR approx, a 5 refill Inglot costs around 850! But this can be easily sorted out if you can magnetize a MAC palette. I think if the stores sold the refills without the palettes, there would be an actual 'rush' to get these.
overall: Yes! I am going gaga! The hot bright shades perks up my mood any day! I did go back to the store and get a full size lipstick as well as another refill and I am now officially in love!

Thank you Pooja for including these! You made me fall in love with this brand!

Girls, I don't 'recommend'.. but I ask you to go and grab the round lipsticks!!

      Inglot doesn't sell refills alone without a palette in the stores,however you can order online at www.shopatmajorbrands.com and order only refills without palettes

    2. Hi Dipti, Pooja has sorted out all your questions. You can check her blog for the swatches as well as wait for a while to find out my swatches as well.
      Ha, this is so stupid that they don;t sell these without the palettes! I really don;t understand why!
