Mahasin Phillips, INGLOTs Brand Ambassador/Senior Artist, is in the hot seat this month! The indie brand, which specializes in primo color payoff, has been growing steadily for the past few years, so we knew it was the perfect time to invite someone from the team to give us (and you) the lowdown.
BN: What is the one main thing that makes INGLOT special?
MP: There are so many things that make INGLOT special. At the top of my list would be the Freedom System. The Freedom System speaks to the creative freedom of every individual by allowing us to customize our makeup palettes to our personal style. INGLOT was the first pro brand to successfully offer this unique system.
BN: What is your favorite INGLOT product + why?
MP: My absolute favorite is INGLOT Lip Paint, it’s the perfect blend of lipstick and lip gloss. My go to color is No. 52.
BN: Is there one IGLOT product that every woman needs in her makeup bag and why?
MP: Of course AMC Gel Eyeliner No. 77!! It’s the most intense black, smudge-proof, waterproof and stay-all-day liner!!
BN: For those who may not be familiar with the brand, what is the philosophy behind it?
MP: The philosophy of the brand starts with the visionary, founder, and creator Mr. Inglot. Mr. Inglot was a brilliant chemist who had a passion to create high-pigmented, quality professional cosmetics. Today, his vision remains, as INGLOT continues to be a leading innovator in the cosmetic industry.
BN: What is your favorite non-INGLOT product?
MP: Embryolisse Lait Creme! When it comes to moisturizing and nourishing the skin, Embryolisse is my go to brand.
BN: Your favorite bargain or drugstore product is…?
Duo eyelash adhesive. I always buy a tube or two when I visit my local drugstore.
BN: What is one universal tip you can give all women when it comes to makeup and beauty?
My most essential universal beauty tip is skincare is top priority. Proper skincare is the first and most important step in creating a flawless makeup application.
