These are premiering at Inglot stores, online, and select Macy's department stores tomorrow Saturday, March 9th. Each lipstick pan retails for $6.00 though I'm not sure how much product is in each pan. For $60.00, you can get a whole spectrum of colors! *Update! The press release I received said the pans would be $5.00 each but the information was incorrect as it is $6.00 online)
(Sorry for the dirty pans, they had already been picked over by the time I got to the Inglot booth!)
Official product description:
"With their unique formulation and special ingredients these bold lipsticks will leave a scent of candy on your lips and the vitamin E and apricot kernel oil are sure to keep them moisturized and protected. The formulation also allows for an easy and long lasting application and will not leave your lips feeling sticky. All shades can be worn individually or mixed and blended to achieve that perfect colour"
My first impression of them is that they are quite creamy but still fairly pigmented. I'm not sure about the longevity factor though as they appeared to stay creamy and not necessarily dry down. I didn't notice the candy scent when I was swatching though it may be more present if I swatch them on my lips.
I swatched these using a doefoot applicator on the back of my hand and took the picture without flash.
91 is a bright, egg yolk yellow. 92 is a brilliant lime green, 93 is a light teal, 94 is a light true blue with a hint of sky blue, 95 is a medium blue-toned purple, 96 is a light pink, 97 is a traffic cone orange, 98 is a darker pink, 99 is a medium red-toned purple, and 100 is a true white (with more of a satin or matte finish). All the colors are shimmerless.
If I had the freedom system palette, I'd be hesitant to keep one of these colors in with my eyeshadows for fear of any fallout contaminating the colors. I would have preferred the lipsticks available in the freedom system round pans like the other freedom system lipsticks so I could have a whole palette of lipsticks that went together as opposed to the square pans.
Do you like the looks of these lipsticks? Are you thinking of picking any up? Personally I like the idea of these pans because I think it's an economical way to have unconventional colors of lipsticks but I would have to make sure I had a way to store them to prevent them from getting dirty. $6.00 is a fabulous price to get a pan of the lipstick colors. I do wish they swapped out one of the pinks for a black lipstick instead so I could better darken some of the colors.
