I wanted a try a few more Inglot products because I was super impressed with the eyeshadows. These test tube like Sleeks lip glosses really caught my eye because they had so many colours and shimmers. I picked this bright orange one since I don’t really have a colour like this.
Inglot Sleeks Lip Gloss in 45 is bright orange, slightly muted and packed with gold and orange shimmer. The shimmer is very dense and very much noticeable! I love the colour in the tube, but on me it didn’t translate well.
The pigmentation is not great, it’s sheer which would be fine but it’s very difficult to build it up because it applies very uneven. For the most part it looks like a tint but the shimmer tends to gather in certain areas and that makes it slightly tricky to get a nice even look.
The finish is high shine with shimmer but it looks it bit frosty on me at times. It looks so gorgeous in the tube but I just don’t like how this looks on me. I tend to use this more for layering rather than by itself.
The texture of the gloss is actually quite good. It feels a bit heavy when you first apply it, but it’s not sticky at all and after it settles, it has that tact which makes it stick to your lips and not move around. Very similar to the Clarins Instant Lights in that aspect. You also don’t really feel the shimmer on your lips.
The staying power is alright, around 3 hours which is fine for a lip gloss. It can survive a small snack or drink but it will fade overtime.
But what really put me off is the smell. It’s a weird fruity and chemical concoction kind of smell which I just didn’t like. It goes away after a while, but it’s not a pleasant experience.
Overall, I love the quality of this but the overall finish and the scent really bothered me. There are some more pigmented shades where it might look better but I think my experimentation with Inglot lip glosses is done for now!
I love the packaging though. It’s like a test tube! The wand is also very long and you get a doe foot applicator. You get 5.5ml of product for Rs. 560 which on a price/ml basis is not exactly cheap.
