One of my latest buys was this lipstick sealer “Lipcote”, which claims to be the secret of lasting lipstick. I was a bit nervous about trying it as I’d heard some bad reviews, but for the £3 I bought it for I knew it was worth a try. You apply your lipstick, blot with a tissue and repeat, then apply the Lipcote to keep it in place. I actually think this works. I put a bright pink on for work a few days ago, hoping/expecting it to rub off and fade as working in a coffee shop – bright lips is a bit of a no no! When I got to work around 3 hours after applying it, still as bright as ever.
It claims that you can get 100 applications out of the little tube, I’ve used it pretty much every day for the last month and I can’t see the bottle going down at all. It does kind of sting when you apply it for a minute or so and its does have a bit of a funny taste (not that you’re meant to taste it!), but after its fine. I am overall pretty impressed with this product, I can definitely see myself re-purchasing. I was so impressed with how long it kept my lip colour to stay bright, and looking just like I’d applied it! I have bought an equivalent to this product from e.l.f – Makeup Lock & Seal. I’m yet to write a review, but a little hint about what’s going to be in it is that I do really like it! Keep your eyes peeled as I’ll be posting about it soon! Have you tried Lipcote? What do you think of Lipcote?
