Inglot 421 Matte Lipstick Review


The lipstick comes in the standard Inglot packaging – a sturdy black casing with the brand logo on the cover. The lipstick has the classic pointed bullet shape which I prefer over flat cylindrical bullet shapes that have become quite common these days. The lipstick is a true matte and has a slightly dry texture. I’d say the the texture is similar to MAC Retro Matte lipsticks. The color pay off is good but there is a bit of tugging involved during application, especially if you have somewhat dry lips. I absolutely do not recommend using this if you have flaky lips. Clean, smooth lips are a must, otherwise the dry texture of this lipstick just emphasises dry lips. The bright bluish matte pink color is really flattering on Indian skin in my opinion and quite lovely for the summer. Because the lipstick is a bit dry, it hardly transfers and wears really well for over 5 hours on my lips leaving a stain behind. It does however, dry my lips out somewhat and doesn’t feel super comfortable after a few hours. It also gets a little patchy as it fades but you can fix that by just using your finger to pat the color evenly on the lips.

Overall, the Inglot 421 Matte lipstick has its merits : great vibrant pink color, true matte finish and a long wear time. But the formula is slightly dry and not as comfortable as I would like. Its not unworkable though but if you have severely dry or chapped lips, I wouldn’t recommend this. As far as matte lipsticks go, I think I prefer the Lakme Absolute Sculpt Matte Lipsticks and L’Oreal Paris Moist Matte lipsticks over the Inglot formula. MAC Mattes are also super comfortable while the MAC Retro Mattes lean slightly dry.

Rating : 3.5/5

p.s – There was an earthquake in Tokyo a few minutes back. I dived under the table grabbing my phone as the alarms were going off on the phone. It was the biggest one I’ve felt in my 1.5 years here and the first time something actually broke (one of the mirrors fell). Glad I wasn’t in the bathroom taking a shower when it happened!

    Take care Ankita…

    Great review Ankita, and glad to know you’re safe. I read a couple of articles sometime back about safety measures to adopt when there’s a quake, one of which was not dive under a table but right next to it. Please check out that part..

    As much as the color is pretty. I would not use a lipstick that is drying. I prefer lipsticks that keeps the lips mositurised or atleast retains their original moisture. Lakme mattes are very good. Try the lip colours from Faces!

    • May 25, 2015 / 12:30 pm

      I'm really liking the Lakme mattes too. I have so many lipsticks already so resisting the urge to buy more shades from the range!

    Oh earthquakes are scary.. no experience, but the effect of recent Nepal earthquakes was felt by my family. Check out some safety measures while having an earthquake, just to be safe.

    HI Ankita,

    Color look cool on you. Are earth quakes that frequent there? Take care.

    It’s a lovely shade but I think it won’t work for my super dry lips.
    Thank you so much Ankita! Exfoliating lips with vaseline on tooth brush helped me to a great extend.
    And yes! May God bless you. Stay safe.

  14. May 25, 2015 / 3:21 pm

    Oh My God Ankita! I just heard the news too!!! Stay safe 🙂 I would love to try it out but am now apprehensive because of the dry formula. Maybe will try it out in the store..

  15. May 25, 2015 / 3:57 pm

  17. May 25, 2015 / 4:23 pm

    a very gorgeous shade but since it is a bit drying, better to skip it…..

  18. May 25, 2015 / 4:36 pm

    stay safe!

    this is my favouritest shade of pink!!

    I love this color…. And suites you best ankita
    I am not going to buy this lipstick as I have similar color in Oriflame the matte one lipstick: color is pink raberry

    It looks quite similar with oriflamme lipstick.. & I think that lipstick is very soft and stays 4 to 5 hrs and prize is also lesser that this : 499 🙂

    and comfortable on dry lips too..

    And hope you all are safe..

    I shall stay away from this lippie! You carry off such bold shades with ease.
    Also, glad you are safe! Earthquakes are so scary. I've experience a mild one and it was really bad.

    Hey Ankita !!
    Loved you.. stunner as always 🙂
    and I am definately looking forward for your compilation on summer pink lipsticks

  22. May 25, 2015 / 5:23 pm

    ankita..glad u r safe.
    can u tell me that which lip liner will go perfect with this lippie.

    • May 25, 2015 / 8:13 pm

      You don't need a lip liner with a matte dry formula like this. But if you still want to use one, Colorbar Summer Pink would work.

  23. May 25, 2015 / 5:26 pm

    Thank god you are safe ankita.. Btw the lipstick color suits you so so much 🙂 I like how matte it looks 🙂

  24. May 25, 2015 / 8:28 pm

    Stay safe and glad you are okay. You look great, such a pretty shade 🙂

  25. May 25, 2015 / 9:53 pm

    Oh Ankita.. be careful & safe.. I wont forget the day we had an earthquake in Chennai followed by the Tsunami in which lot of people died in TamilNadu. I went near the beach to see to what extent the water had come into the city.
    Pretty shade, I too bought an Inglot lipstick shade 103 recently & I love it totally..

    Thanks for reviewing the inglot matte lipstick range… the shade is looking so beautiful on you. but i really disliked the product if its so drying on lips.. & i will never be in the mood to spend Rs 950 on such a product… 🙁

    May 26, 2015 / 11:43 am

    Well nw i have started disliking this brand.. the SA's are always busy in doing their own makeup & gossiping with each other… & even if someone thinks about trying the freedom system then they will forcefully ask you to buy a pallete.. & till nw i really had a very bad experience with Inglot foundation & compact.. 🙁 🙁

  35. May 26, 2015 / 7:45 pm

    i have tried these too didnt liked them much…be safe heard the news…

  36. May 27, 2015 / 10:24 am

    WOW! it is so so pretty color!

  37. Priyanka Rao
    May 27, 2015 / 7:45 pm

    Ankita, Shouldn’t I think this color is a lot closer to Chambor Powder Matte in Pink Flamingo?
    Would be great if you could show us a comparison swatch!

    And I am really glad to know you are safe!

  38. May 29, 2015 / 11:15 am

    Ankita what eyelashes are those? Love the wispy feel!

    • May 29, 2015 / 12:35 pm

      Eylure Katy Perry lashes – Feline Fierce. They are awesome!
