Inglot Lipstick Swatches & Review: Dupe for Mac Scarlet Ibis?

Guest Review by Swastika

So I went to the MAC store to get MAC Scarlet Ibis Lipstick and by chance landed up at the INGLOT store while on the way there . Once there I thought I will look for similar shades which are easier on the pocket and my eyes landed on this- The Inglot Freedom System Lipstick in #37. To me they looked very similar: both were the same gorgeous shade of warm, orangey red that works perfectly with warmer skin tones.Scarlet Ibis is a tad bit more orange, but on the lips you cant tell the difference between these two!

I really wanted this and was thinking of noting down the number so that I can order online , because earlier whenever i liked an eyeshadow INGLOT stores  would ask me to buy a whole palette.However, I just tried my luck and asked the SA – Can I just have the refill pan for this? The SA said YES! He did not force or even ask me to buy a palette. I wondered if they have changed their policy or is he not aware that the stores only sold palettes. So I quickly grabbed this and ran before he decided he cant really sell the refills ;) .

Inglot Lipsticks in general are very value for money. They have a great pigmentation, creamy texture and good lasting power. You do need a brush to apply these which is a bit of a  hassle, but for the price its hard to come by a better product!

Pros of Inglot Lipstick # 37
– Gorgeous color – very similar to MAC Ibis
– Creamy
– Very good staying power- lasts about 4-5 hours on me
– Inexpensive

Cons of Inglot Lipstick #37
– Difficult to carry
– Needs a brush to apply

Overall verdict- 5/5
Price: Rs 250 for a refill pan.

Recommendation: Inglot refill pans are an inexpensive way to try new colors. The quality is great like all INGLOT products. This particular color is a beautiful orangey red which may be a good dupe for scarlet ibis, except this is just a tad bit redder and not as orange

I love the colour. I think when it comes to shades like these which I don’t wear often, it’s better to go with the cheaper product. :)
