Celebrating 50 Years of Lipcote!

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!

  1. I've never tried lipcote cause i didnt think itd work!! I was looking at it the other day thinking I really ought to try it! and i just might do now!

  2. I've never tried it as my lips get dried out really easily. But I am defo goning to try it out now thanks to your reccomendation. x

  3. I remember using lipcote in my teens too. My mum used to have it and curiosity got the better of me one day. I hated it, it stung! That will teach me. (i was rather sensitive in my younger years though!).
    Now im not so sensitive i use it everytime i apply lipstick. Its fab! I find it quite drying aswell though. Have just bought a new bottle, wish id seen this post before else id have gone for this vanilla one instead!

  4. This is one of those prducts I was always entrigued by but never actually bought, maybe I need to part ways with a couple of quid and give it a go!.


  5. I bought it years ago and threw it away because it stung like hell and tasted so bitter. I can't see me going back to it again.

  6. I cant wait to try out the new version, it use to taste awful so hopefully its much nicer now. I love vanilla!
