Lipcote

I bought this from urban Outfitters and I wasn’t expecting much as it was in the sale for only £2 (normally around £4) but I thought I’d give it a go as the promise of my lipstick lasting longer sold me!
To use you need to apply your lipstick as normal, blot then apply a coat over your lips. It does say on the box it should tingle a little when you apply it which had me a little worried- I really don’t like tingling lip products wimp..
But the tingling faded almost instantly leaving my lips with a weird texture, not quite matte but not quite glossy! This did have an annoying side effect of making the glitter in the lipstick stand out. But despite the glitter lipcote really did add a lot of longevity to my lip colour!
I’m not sure I’ll repurchase as you don’t need much so I imagine this little bottle will last me quite a while! I do like how you can transform all your lipsticks into long lasting stains with just one product and I’m definitely glad I picked it up!
Have any of you tried this before?
Hope this has been helpful!! x
P.S I used L'Oreal Plum Passion Lipstick

This sounds great! I love the colour of the lipstick! I remember my mum using it over her lipstick when I was younger and I asked her why she was putting nail varnish on her lips! Haha. xx

Very nice, gives me a lot of inspiration being right in the midst of a redesign. It¡¯s all in the details and comment forms are definitely overlooked more often than not. Time well spent on this post.
