My review of the Ingot matte lipstick 440
If you know me you know I used to be someone who always goes for pink, peach and other nude lipsticks. It’s just recently that I started using more bold and brighter shades! I have used the Inglot matte lipsticks in many other shades before.I have even tried this purple shade but I didn’t buy it because I thought I will never use it! I wouldn’t have used it then but now things have changed and I have started using more bold, bright and deep colours. Hence I finally bought this deeper shade from Inglot Matte lipstick range.
The lipstick comes in a black outer box which has all the information written like the ingredient list, expiry and shade number which we will obviously throw away so no use. The actual lipstick has a classy black metal like and sturdy packaging with the brand name written on the lid. The shade number is written on a sticker at the bottom of the bullet. I actually don’t prefer shades to be identified as numbers and I believe you too don’t like it that way either. The only way to identify a particular shade is to open the top and check other than remembering the shade number. The cap shuts tight and hence is travel-friendly.
It contains ingredients like Castor oil, Macadamia oil and Avocado oil which helps to moisturise and nourish your lips.
The texture of this lipstick is matte, real matte! If you are in search for a true matte lipstick, then this one is for you. Since it’s matte, it has a slightly dry texture too. Hence there is a chance for a bit of tugging. Exfoliating and moisturising of the lips is very important otherwise your lips will look dry and patchy. But this lipstick does not settle into fine lines.
The shade 440 which I am talking about today is a deep purple shade, which will bring that bold and quirky side of you outside. This shade will be flattering on most skin tones, especially for the dark skinned beauties. It has a fruity fragrance, not an overpowering fragrance but sweet and pleasant.
Just one swipe and you are left with an opaque colour. Can expect a little bit of dragging when applying but nothing that cannot be fixed. .If you want the shade to be more intense then you can do two or more swipes. Covers even pigmented lips. Does not transfer or bleed.
The staying power is also quite impressive. Stays for 5-6 hours with light meal and drinks. When you have heavy meals it fades from the centre. It fades leaving a beautiful stain behind. I cannot say it fades evenly but you can easily fix this by just swiping your fingers.
After 6 hours it fades leaving a beautiful stain behind. I cannot say it fades evenly but you can easily fix this by just evening out the colour with your fingers.

- Exfoliating and moisturising are very important for a clean and smooth application.
I have used the Inglot matte lipstick in many other shades before and I really like it! I have to admit that if you don’t exfoliate and moisturise your lips properly this will end up looking patchy and dry. The shade #440 is no different. The stain this particular shade leaves behind is also something I love and is beautiful. I rate it 3.9/5. Despite the dry texture, I would still say this matte lipstick from Inglot is something you should at least try. The quality of this lipstick is brilliant.
