I am pretty sure you have all heard of Lipcote..the cult product which has now been around for an amazing 50 years holding many lipstick colours in place for those luscious lips throughout the day!
I remember getting my very first Lipcote when i was about 15 or 16...back then i wasn't really a huge lipstick fan more of a lipgloss but being a true make-up fanatic i picked one up anyway and gave it a try...i loved it and could see why so many other ladies out there did too. The only problem was it was very drying on the lips.
Luckily for me and all the other lipstick geeks out there Lipcote has had a bit of a make-over with the packaging and the scent of the product..which is now Vanilla mmmm you all know how much i love Vanilla. With this make-over i think the formulation has much improved as its now not at all drying and the new scent makes it a joy to wear and keeps my lipstick in place all day even after eating a scrumptious jammy dodger from Gosh Patisserie.
Last night a few of us lipstick mad girlie's took to twitter to enjoy a Lipcote party and share our experiences of the cult product and to get together to celebrate 50 Years of Lipcote.
I road tested Lipcote at work...i was at work for 6 hours and wore a pink lipstick and i am proud to say after eating my lunch and coming home and pigging out on the Gosh Patisserie cake my lipstick was still in tact. It had slightly disappeared around the edges however the colour was still definitely there. I think if i had worn a lip liner this would have helped as well. I really enjoyed the twitter party and seeing all the gorgeous colours some of you had created so i cant wait for the weekend so i can try out even more colours and use my Lipcote once again.
A BIG Happy Birthday to Lipcote and a BIG Thank-you for saving us from our lipstick disasters...I'm sure many of you have ended up with a red moustache when show casing your favourite red lippe!!
Lipcote is available from Boots and Superdrug nationwide and is priced at a mear £3.49..you really so need a Lipcote in your make-up bag, you wont be disappointed!
