If you have been reading my blog then you know that I am a lipstick girl but just wished they would just last long (yes, I am looking at you ysl rouge volupte). Well I am sure you know what lipcote is as its been around for over 50 years :) Well if you don’t it is a clear liquid that you brush on your lips after you have applied your lipstick to stop it fading.
When I got lipcote from a friend for Christmas I got all nostalgic because we use to use it when we were younger and first started getting in to makeup. We didn’t really have a clue about it and we just thought we were so cool and grown up. I couldn’t remember much about it or whether it worked just that it stung really bad when you put it on.
Give your lipstick staying power!
Stops lipstick marking, staining and feathering - the secret of kissable lips.
If your lipstick is more like lip slip, you really do need Lipcote.
With its original, long-lasting formula, it will keep lips looking luscious & kissable all day long.
- Effective & Long Lasting.
- Unique formula made with natural ingredients.
How to use: Apply lipstick and blot thoroughly, apply a thin and even layer of lipcote and allow to dry.
Since Christmas I have been trying it out and found I love it, it is now a staple in my make-up bag. I find it makes my lipstick last around 4/5 hours even with eating and drinking. The downside is that it doesn't work on all lipsticks. I find that it doesn't work with really creamy lipstick you just end up with a gooey mess and it just comes off after 10 mins, which sadly means it doesn't help with ysl issue :(
It doesn’t really sting like I remember just more of a tingle which only last a few seconds and after you use it a few times you stop feeling it. Try and avoid licking your lips as it does has a horrible taste and it smells strongly of alcohol.
It comes in a nail varnish like bottle so when you are applying it in public you can get some funny looks off people thinking you are putting nail varnish on your lips :/
