Inglot #103 Lipstick
Inglot #103 Lipstick

Inglot Lipstick ($12.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “classic” formula that’s long-wearing and hydrating–a short ‘n’ sweet description to be sure! I just wrapped up testing two shades, and the formula on both was lightly creamy with enough slip to apply without dragging, richly pigmented, and long-wearing (but worth noting is that both shades I tried were on the brighter and deeper end of the spectrum, lighter shades may or may not wear as well). At best, very lightly hydrating but not drying. I didn’t notice any added scent, but I did detect a slight waxiness. Bonus: each lipstick is 0.16 oz., which is quite generous (lipsticks typically range from 0.10 to 0.12 oz.).

Inglot #103 Lipstick Cream ($12.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a vibrant, orange-red with a soft sheen and warm undertones. It had rich, full color coverage and applied evenly. This shade wore well for six hours. Givenchy Carmin Escarpin (306) (P, $36.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Short Circuit (LE, $26.00) is very similar. Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is also very similar. MAC Tomango (LE, $16.00) is matte. Urban Decay Bang (P, $22.00) is a smidgen lighter. Maybelline Orange Edge (LE, $7.49) is similar. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin (P, $7.49) is a touch redder. MAC Sail La Vie (LE, $16.00) is slightly darker. MAC Neon Orange (LE, $16.00) is brighter. MAC Morange (P, $16.00) is brighter. Buxom Rogue (P, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream ($12.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a deep, dark muted berry with cool undertones and a luminous sheen. The consistency of this shade was slightly more emollient and had more slip than #103, and I think it shows in the finish, which looks a bit wetter. It had mostly opaque pigmentation applied to lips, but there was a touch of translucency that kept it from looking heavy. The most noteworthy part about this color was how evenly it applied, as this is a color that can often look splotchy. When I tried this shade, it wore well for six hours and left behind a stain. Laura Mercier Merlot (P, $26.00) is much lighter, warmer. Guerlain Flirt (LE, $35.00) is lighter, more shimmery. Guerlain Gigolo (LE, $49.50) is redder. Guerlain Bee (LE, $49.50) is much lighter. Guerlain Nuit d’Amour (LE, $35.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

  1. I bought 103 when I was in San Francisco in ’12 and I absolutely love it!

  2. Both shades are right up my alley. I’ll definitely check these out when I pass by Inglot. :)

  3. 293 is sooo gorgeous! You always make me want to try orange lipstick because it looks so great on you, but I tried on MAC’s Lady Danger once and it made my teeth look so yellow… :-( and that even has red in it, I can only imagine how 103 would make them look.

    How does 293 compare to Mac Rebel?
    Both look great on you btw!

    I love #293, so gorgeous!

  6. I just recently tried this brand as have been so impressed! Yesterday I was in SF and went into Macy’s and saw their full display. Gorgeous? How do you choose? How would you best describe how it compares with other brands?
    I did buy some eye shadow…signing up for a Macy’s card I got 15% ….crazy…but haven’t decided if I’ll keep it or get the new Urban Decay palette coming out next week. Any thoughts? Totally okay if not!
    These look lovely on you.

    • I really like Inglot’s eyeshadows – well worth the price tag, if not twice as month. I don’t think they have all the same neon-esque shades as UD, so you won’t find exact dupes, but they have plenty of brights!

  7. Oh wow the berry color is so gorgeous!! I think I need it in my life….

  8. Kelsey

    I LOVE #293, but I’m debating whether it’s worth it, as I already own MAC’s Rebel.

    I love their lipsticks! I only have 2 but the formula is amazing

  10. 293 is a great dupe of Guerlain Gigolo that I’ve been wanting forever!

    Wow, #293 is so beautiful! I can’t believe how it looks like on the lips, simply amazing!

    I so wish they had a store where I live. I’d be there every day! :P

  13. I love shades like 293 but I would never have anywhere to wear it to.

    orange-reds and deep berries are two of my favorite lipstick colors! i probably have dupes for both of these (i have some of the ones you listed and then some), but for only $12 apiece, i just might have to get these. i’ve never tried inglot and probably should. how do these compare with say, a mac lipstick? the look of inglot remind me of mac, but if you can think of anything else the formula is comparable to, i’d love to know!

    • They’re certainly on par with MAC! I think it’s a good, solid lipstick. Not ultra hydrating, and probably with so many cream shades, there is plenty of overlap with other brands/formulas, but if there’s a shade you’ve wanted in a cream, they probably have it!

  15. That orange looks soooo good on you! I worry that it will make my teeth look a bit yellow though…

  16. Aww, I was hoping 293 would be more ‘purple’, from the way it looks in the tube! Still, they both look stunning on you, and the formula seems quite nice!

    How is it possible that EVERYTHING looks good on you! Jealous!

  18. Just an FYI, in the individual product reviews above, both shades are listed as #103. :)

    #293 is beautiful in the tube, but swatched… it just falls flat. Not that it isn’t a beutiful shade applied, but the difference in how amazing it looks in the tube is a major disappointment, while the applied color is just so common. That said, it’s a very common occurrence in deeper shades; 99 times in 100, they’re never as interesting as they are in the tube.

    I love both of them. I own both of the Vivids which are close dupes and also MAC Lady Danger which also looks to be close so I cannot justify #103 but I am a sucker for berry toned lippies and #293 is right up my alley!! I have never tried Inglot lipsticks but I have a few of their eyeshadows and they are great.

  21. #293 is incredible… I’m a berry (and red) lipstick junkie, so this might be my request when my mother in law heads to new york.

    Inglot is such an amazing brand that is easily overlooked. They have really great products that perform well and are relatively reasonable in terms of pricing. I’m lucky to have a store right by me! And they’re selection is also great. I’m a sucker for purple, and before MAC re-released Heroine, I tried really hard to find a dupe. I finally found one that is pretty close color-wise (but not matte) at Inglot! I also think it was around ten euros!

  23. Michelle

    Both of these shades look absolutely stunning on you!!! These colors are right up my alley!!!

  24. Those both look great on you, especially the orange one! I’ll take the glorious purple one!

  25. I have two Inglot lipsticks they are nice

  26. I love the darker color but I just wanna confirm is the berry color 103 or 293? The pics says 103 is the orange but the description says 103 is the berry. Thanks

    Where can I buy these lovely lippies?

    • Beautylish carries most of Inglot’s range, some Macy’s stores have Inglot counters, and Inglot also sells online. You can click “where to buy” in the Glossover for info.

  28. Cindy

    Oh dear, I ran to buy 293 immediately after seeing your swatch because GUH ITS SO BEAUTIFUL but it’s not listed on the website from the link you provided? I checked 3 times so unless I’m missing something that lipstick isn’t available! Is it limited edition?

  29. Glad to see their lipsticks getting some love. Although the colours aren’t as nuanced as some of the higher end ones, I find that they’re a great deal for what you get and there are so many shades to choose from that you’re bound to find something that works for you!

    I love #293 and it looks beautiful on your Christine! I must get this in my life….lol

  31. #293 looked so purple in the tube but it came out much redder than I expected. Still pretty, but I have Rebel (and two of its dupes, Wet n’ Wild Sugar Plum Fairy and Milani Sangria) so I definitely don’t need LOL!

    I am really into oranges, however, so I might look into #103.

  32. #293 is one sexy lipstick!

    These lipsticks look simply divine.. I have been on a orange lip look lately so this will be perfect addition to the family.

  34. 12 dollars, that much product, good quality? Wow, and… Why?

  35. 293 is so vampy, I love it! While it may not have enough red to be a dupe for Guerlain Gigolo (to which I’ve been trying to find for a while), it’s gorgeous in its own accord.

  36. Hey Christine// #103 is such smashing Hott Orange.. I am happy that I got this shade..:)
    BTW do you think #293 is close to MAC Rebel..??

  37. Oh wow that red. And the berry is surprisingly wearable. I loveeee Inglot’s shadows, someday hopefully I’ll invest in some of their lip products

    Christine, you look dazzling.
    You are selling me those lipstick shades, although I might have to pick up #293 until Fall/Winter.
    Stunning.Well done!

  40. MonibackinCali

    #293 looks amazing. I love the way it resembles Mac’s Rebel but it’s an extra umph!

    I look at it and wish it was what Mac’s “Boyfriend Stealer” should have been. That was a flop on so many levels….. blah…

  41. Shade 103 looks really vibrant and summery! I am also liking the finish..

  42. CourtneyK

    Ooh, me likey #293. I’ll have to try it on next time.

  43. 293 is a gorgeous berry shade just lovely :)

  44. Oh! I love the deep berry one…Gotta check it out at Inglot now :)

    Thanks so much for reviewing these, Christine! I was looking at these on BeautyLish the other day, and wondering how they were. Now I have my answer! I hope you’ll continue to review them! There’s a really cool sky blue shade in the range that I’m curious about….

  46. OMG Christine, both the shades are so beautiful. Second shade is not at all similar to what it looks like in the tube, beautiful though!

  47. And now I’m in love with 293.

  48. #293 is really beautiful on you! Great post.

  49. #293 is strikingly gorgeous. That’s the type of color I would wear even if I wasn’t going anywhere, just to have something so pretty to look at when passing a mirror. Not a bad price, either, considering how it performed and that it doesn’t look like a lot of other shades to me.
