This particular shade is a blind buy: During mom's Malaysia trip, I asked her to buy me a random red-orange lipstick from Inglot. I'm not really the type who'd let anyone choose a shade for me, but I figured that it's nice to surprise yourself once in a while. And my oh my, my mother has taste! I had low expectations with what she got but when I 've opened up the tube, I gushed at the color because it's so pretty! Nice one, mom!
Looks like jelly in a tube! The formulation of this lipstick is satin, and it yields a moist finish.

103 is a bright red orange shade. It's so opaque, and I like how it conceals fine lines. Staying power is great, as it lasts a few cups of coffee and one full meal. It glides on smoothly and imparts a good amount of color in one swipe. I only use around one to two layers because its consistency is kinda' thick, and it has a tendency to feel heavy. For a more lightweight coverage, I use a lip brush. It virtually has no taste, but the only let down for me is the Lychee taste. Nope, I never really liked Lychee- flavored stuff--not even the fruit.
The lipstick does not settle into fine lines, and is non-drying. This is perhaps the truest red-orange lipstick shade I've ever owned: Most red-orange lippies tend to look dark red on me, and I'm happy to know that the color of this lipstick stayed true on my lips. I love it! Need I say more?
