My New Favorite Red – Inglot Matte Lipstick in 412

I had no idea what to expect when I first checked out Inglot matte lipsticks. I was pleasantly surprised that the texture and consistency is very similar to MAC Retro Matte lipsticks. It tugs as you swipe it on and it doesn’t have any shine at all.  If you’re a matte lipstick lover, you’d love this. If you hate MAC retro matte lipsticks, this is not for you.

Inglot 412 Swatch

I checked out the Bright ‘n Matte Lipstick Collection and my eyes gravitated towards the burgundy-ish plum and the bright purple. I stopped myself because I already have those colors and I vowed that I’d only have one lipstick of a particular color at a given time.

I left the Bright and Matte section for the non-limited edition reds and saw Inglot 412.  I swatched it on my arm and liked it.

I would describe it as a raspberry blue-red.  I haven’t encountered a red like it.  It may not be a true red but it’s the red for me.  Look at 412 along all the other reds and plums.  It sits in that sweet spot that’s not really red red but isn’t berry either.

It’s a kind of red that’s not blindingly bright.  You can comfortably wear it in the day time but it still gives you the look of wearing a red lipstick. I can’t explain it well but I hope you get me.

The lipstick doesn’t have a lot of transfer — like most mattes — which means, it stays longer than most lipsticks.  If you don’t drink or eat anything, it will stay put.  I drink water every 2 to 3 hours and most of this lipstick stays on my lips. It doesn’t give me the ring lip nor does it feather. But the latter is probably due to how I apply it (which is for another post).

It’s everything I want in MAC retro matte lipsticks but better because it’s cheaper and you have more color choices.

If you’re a (bone-dry) matte lipstick lover, definitely check out Inglot’s selection.



  1. Ang chaka! Nakakairita yung mga ganun klase na sales lady!
    Anywho, I’ve been always wanting to try Inglot cosmetics! Hindi lang ako nakakadaan ng Glorieta 5 pa and nalulula ako sa dami I don’t know what to get! Siguro it will take me the whole day to decide and shop


  2. You should smile on your blog photos more often–you look so pretty! 🙂 The lipstick looks good on you. I’m glad you found your red. Oh, and I can relate to eye color not showing up because of my hooded lids. Lol. I hardly bother anymore.


  3. This reminds me of MAC Heaux! I swear, they almost look similar! Maybe if you mix Heaux with Flat Out Fab, BAM. Hahaha! It looks so good on you! 🙂 That’s my kind-o-color. 😉


  4. First thing I thought of was how it looked a little bit like Heaux. But even if it doesn’t look like a red in your swatch at all, it’s such a gorgeous color. And I like the sound of it being bluer and cherrier than VG I. Now, I can go to Inglot, specifically ask for this shade and hopefully, not mind the other selections. (It’s so easy to get distracted by their displays and even more difficult to bypass their store altogether.)
