I love all things lilac and purple when it comes to make up – lipgloss, nail polish, eyeshadows – if it’s a funky shade of lilac or purple, then I want it. I was so happy when I finally got my hands on MAC Lavender Whip lipstick and that’s what set me off on my lilac/purple crusade.
I picked up Inglot Slim Gel lick in shade 65, which is a bright, electric purple. It’s gorgeous! I think I actually love this more than Lavender Whip at the moment. It’s just too much!!! WOC – do not sleep on this shade if you happen to pop into Inglot. I’m unsure how it compares to MAC Violetta as I don’t own that to compare, but this will do for me in the meantime.
Lipglossiping voiced concerns over the Slim Gels being too soft and possibly breaking when pressure is applied to them, but I think I’ve overcome this potential issue by just twisting the tube to expose no more of the lipstick than I actually need when applying it. It. Storing your make up in a cool, dry place away from heat will of course, preserve your makeup for longer too.
It glides on smoothly and has a smooth, creamy texture which keep my lips moisturised. I wore it yesterday and it kept my lips supple, only needing a touch up after meals. Some of my MAC lipsticks can be a tad on the dry side but I was really happy with the way this performed.
