Inglot AMC Matte lip pencils have been around for a long time, but I never bought any purely because of my dislike for matte/ drying formulas. I was so into glossy/ balmy lipsticks a year back. But with this trend of matte lipsticks. I got pushed and decided to put my apprehensions behind and test couple of the new launches. I loved Lakme Absolute Matte lipsticks & L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipsticks. This time I decided to show my daredevil side and picked two of these matte lip pencils. I am glad that I did..
A pencil that is thick enough to use as lipstick, yet it can be sharpened to a fine point for precise application as a lip liner. Avocado oil moisturizes, smoothes, and regenerates the lips whilst the modern formula ensures a long lasting even coverage with a velvety matte finish.
Shade – I picked two of my favorite hues – Red & Plum . Inglot AMC Matte Lip Pencil No 21 is a beautiful red, which I would call a true red color. the color itself is so flattering and I am sure that it will compliment a variety of skintones. For someone like me who falls into medium to deep skintone range. This one would be an ideal red to start with. No 34 is a beautiful plum almost burgundy shade. I love such dark shades and can wear them all year around.
Texture & Formula – Texture of Inglot AMC Lip Pencil is matte, very matte ! Formula tugs and pulls lips while you try to glide it on, however this is what makes it a true matte lip product. Some may love it some hate it. I have tried it both ways- with or without lip balm underneath and that directly affects the longevity of the product on the lips. If I want an average staying power but comfortable wear. I apply light layer of lip balm before applying AMC Matte Lip pencil. It helps formula to glide on smoothly with a semi-matte finish. However on days when I know that retouching makeup would be out of question I apply it on bare lips. It clings on to the lips and doesn’t fade till the evening! Its pure matte hence exfoliating lips beforehand is always recommended.
Pigmentation – I need 2-3 layers to get opaque finish. The best part about these is that they can be used as lip liner, . I myself have successfully tried. Inglot AMC Matte Lip Pencil comes with a sharpened hidden in the bottom part of the pencil, which can be used to sharpen the tip.
Staying Power – This is where these matte lip crayons excel. Both the shades stay on for good 8+ hours without much fading and even survive full-fledged meals.
Only con is that it accentuated lip lines, but that can’t be a con because these are matte and that texture is supposed to look matte and dry.
Inglot AMC Matte Lip Pencil (Rs 850 for 1.8g)
With my new found love for mattes I am thoroughly enjoying Inglot AMC Matte Lip Pencils. I love both the shades and the staying power is stupendous. Believe me you are going to see more of these on the blog soon.
