Inglot Matte Eyeshadows in #377, 379, 325, 375, 320, 386, 334, 346 (Purples)

This next look at Inglot’s Matte Eyeshadows ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) features several variations on purple.

While I’ve had fairly good luck with Inglot’s matte eyeshadows in the past, I found a lot of these troublesome.  Several shades did not apply evenly, so the end result was a patchy swatch that was sheer in places and opaque elsewhere.  I was rather disappointed in how these swatched, so I played around with them in application, and they were better but not as stellar as the rest of the matte range.  The only shades out of these that I recommended are #325 and #375.

CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipcolor Swatches, Photos, Reviews (Part 1)

What’s a better test of their “silk moisturizing complex” than swatching 44 lipsticks over seven days? The biggest claim that Lip Perfection makes is that by prolonged use of their formula, your lips will be “soft, smooth, [and] beautiful” within seven days. The other claim being “in a single stroke, lips are enhanced with rich, rewarding color.” So last month, I worked through the 44 shades over a week’s period and am ready to roll out the reviews, photos, and swatches! (You’d be surprised how un-fun it is to go through and crop photos for 44 lipsticks.)

On average, Lip Perfection lasted four hours on my lips, with darker shades lasting five to six hours, but the lighter shades pulled in at four hours. These tend to be more opaque in color, and this is definitely a factor in getting better wear, as it takes longer for the color to fade away. Lip Perfection lives up to the claims of rich color, and one stroke gets you there, too.

These are moisturizing in some ways, less so in other ways. I very much missed my Jack Black Lip Balm by the end of seven days, but my lips didn’t take a beating nor were they dried out, cracked, or peeling. They were fairly normal, but I always felt like I needed to reach for something to put on them (which, for the week, was a Lip Perfection lipstick). They’re moisturizing while you wear them, and when you remove them (or they fade away), your lips aren’t dying for balm, but I couldn’t go too long without putting it on again.

Just like in lip balms, sometimes they make your lips feel comfortable and moisturized while you wear them, but they don’t necessarily give you that deep-down hydration that drier lips need. These moisturize the lips, and the moisturization lasts longer than the lipstick color does, but I wouldn’t throw out my lip balm. I feel as if I’ve found my holy grail in lip balm (Jack Black), and without it, my lips were not in the same shape as they typically are–slightly less soft and smooth.
