I never used to wear lipstick, I was quite afraid of receiving any attention – That comes with having low self esteem I suppose. I was always scared that I wasn’t doing it right, had on the wrong shade or just looked like a fool. Recently I have re-discovered my confidence and feel empowered to embrace my femininity. It is amazing what a a little lipstick will do to a woman. I would generally buy a pretty coloured lipstick, love the shade, wear it once, think that I look ridiculous and in the drawer it went, never to be seen or worn again. Even if I did brace the outside world wearing it, my lips would dry up and after a good ol’ cup of tea, my beautiful lipstick had gone.
After finding my renewed confidence I didn’t want to give up. I have been Kindly sent a bottle of Lipcote Lip Sealer to try out.
First Impressions are that I love the packaging, the Lipcote Lip Sealer came wrapped in white tissue paper with printed lips and the brand name. The cardboard packaging is really chic and retro, the Website has the Similar retro-chic design.
The sealer itself is in liquid form and comes in a little glass bottle with a nail varnish – like brush applicator. To apply, you just dab a little on the top of your chosen applied lipstick, wait for it to dry and you’re ready to go. As you apply, it does tingle slightly, As I have sensitive skin and lips, it almost felt like it was burning, I was a little concerned but don’t worry, this is normal and the tingle goes away pretty quickly. It dries almost instantly and you can go about your day right away.
After a full day of drinking tea and water, I noticed only a minimal fade in my lipstick, it did wear off more when I ate but that can be expected, But I may just need to be more careful.
Overall, Would I recommend this? Definitely! A little goes a long way (Lipcote claims that this small bottle lasts over 100 applications), and at less than £4 a bottle, that is pretty good value for money.
Have you tried Lipcote? What are your thoughts?
