My lipstick party with Lipcote

November 9, 2011

You lovely ladies will no doubt be aware that I have a big love for lipsticks ( I will be doing a collection post soon – 3 boxes full!) and can never resist a pretty shade or a moisturising formula. It isn’t unusual for me to have at least 3 or 4 lipsticks floating around my handbag, at one point I had 7 in my bag addict much? However since I have such a love for my MAC cremesheens or YSL rouge voluptes I always find myself reapplying by the hour, sadly none of my favorite lipsticks are terribly long-lasting. Step up Lipcote.

I’m sure most of you have already tried Lipcote or at least heard about them, Lipcote has been the number 1 lipstick sealer for the last 5 decades. Making the dinky product 50 years old, it must be doing something right for it to still be kicking around after all these years. So I wanted to put it to the test for myself, I had never tried Lipcote before, despite picking it up numerous times in Boots and Superdrug.  

Lipcote is simple, it is a clear liquid that you brush or pat over your lipstick and the result is some serious staying power. It does remind me of a nail polish, not the best packaging in my opinion but if a product works I don’t care about the packaging. Plus they have recently launched a yummy new vanilla flavour – how did they know I love all things vanilla?!

To celebrate Lipcote being over 50 I had a mini lipstick party with me, myself and I. Mixing up some lipstick shades and testing Lipcote out. I was very impressed with staying power, this little wonder really does keep your lipstick in place – despite my best efforts nibbling treats and slurping tea it was perfect.
For only RRP £3.49 (You can buy this in Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets nationwide) I think it is one all lipstick addicts should have. Look out for my youtube video of me mixing shades and sharing my opinions as I tried it for the first time.
