Inglot AMC Lip Pencil
Guest Review written by Dhara
If there is one thing that I just can’t get enough right now of is nudes. Now don’t get too many ideas you dirty minds..I meant nude lipsticks :p The lovelie that I am showing off today is the Inglot AMC Lip pencil # 16.
According to the Inglot website, this pencil is
- Medium hard, matte jumbo pencil.
- Great staying power makes it an alternative for lip liner used by professionals for colouring lips.
- Moisturising properties achieved by the complex of lanoline substitutes and avocado butter.
This is a pinkish brown colored jumbo sized lip pencil which can be used as lipstick ! This lip pencil is pigmented, goes on pretty nude on my slightly pigmented lips, washing my NC 40(MAC) complexion out a bit. If you are lighter than NC40, this would look even more flattering on you! These Inglot lip pencils are matte in texture and quite drying, but iv noticed the texture differs from shade to shade !! The brighter or darker colored pencil seemed to perform much better in the texture and moisture department than the light Inglot AMC Lip Pencils like this one. I generally apply Vaseline lip balm 10 minutes prior to using this lip pencil. That way I get a bit of moisture!
It lasts around 4 hours on me with a full meal, after which this particular color just becomes invisible on my lips. I really recommend using it as a base for nude brown/pink lip glosses. That’s how I wear it and in that sense it is great- you get more lasting power and also some moisturization. Another downside is that since its a jumbo pencil, you would need a sharpener which has sharpening hole larger than the normal ones. Nevertheless I love this nude baby. Using this has made me fall in love with glosses all over again. Oh and there’s a something for everyone..it’s available in 23 different colors…from baby pink to a rich dark red/maroon :) . I recommend you try out the brighter or darker shades as the texture differs in those pencils
Overall Verdict: B+
Price: Rs. 680 for a 3.8 gm pencil(the info from the website and the info printed on the pencil are different, so don’t know which is correct.)
Recommendation: The Inglot AMC Lip Pencil in #16 is a pale pinkish nude that slightly washes my NC 40 complexion out, but i still like it as a nude lip pencil. These matte lip pencils are pigmented, long lasting, smooth to apply and can be used as a lipstick too. The texture however differs from shade to shade, and this particular one definitely had issues with drying out lips and accentuationg fine lines which other shades do not. My favourite way to use this is to wear it under glosses!
