Name: Matte Collection AMC Lip Pencil in 21
From Inglot’s website:
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.
What I liked:
– available in lots of shades
– very pigmented
– the packaging
What I didn’t like:
– not moisturizing
– if lips aren’t well prepped and moisturized, it will enhance flaws
I have a weakness for jumbo lip pencils. They are convenient to use and look so cute, but I had never tried one with a matte finish. So I was very thrilled when I won a Inglot Matte Collection AMC Lip Pencil, a lipstick in a pencil form, in one of Makeup 4 All blog giveaways. This pencil is available in lots of shades so everyone will be able to find at least one they like. The one I have, 21, is a beautiful bright cherry red. It is very pigmented so one layer is all you need.
Because it has a matte finish, your lips need to be well prepped and moisturized before you apply it or the lipstick will settle into fine lines, accentuate every minor flaw and look uneven. On exfoliated and moisturized lips, though, the pencil glides on really smoothly and evenly. It also feels lightweight on the lips but it’s not moisturizing. It’s not too drying either but you definitely need to apply a layer of lip balm before using it.
The formula wears well too. It stays put for about 3-4 hours if you don’t eat nor drink, and then it fades evenly. The design of the pencil is very elegant and professional too and the price is right. It’s not very cheap but not too expensive either. If you’re looking for a matte pencil with good color payoff, this one is definitely worth checking out.
