Don't know whether this was supposed to happen but there was a slight tingly sensation when I applied it. Guess it's the sealer getting straight to work. Not too keen on the chemical scent but I couldn't find it in the new vanilla fragrance in the shops so had to buy the original. Applied properly by following the tips and tricks recommended on the website, it works very well. I've yet to try it during a day out but it certainly kept my lipstick on for the two hours I wore it at home (during which I had brunch), so thumbs up.
This was a lovely little discovery because I'd recently bought two new lipsticks: Max Factor in Sunbroze (£7.99 from Boots) and Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Black Cherry (£12).
Mary Kay items are always very moisturising, particularly their products for lips. I really like this shade on me. Plum/cherry reds suit my skin tone best.
I've never tried Max Factor products before but I'm keen on the other stuff on offer after buying this lipstick. It's more of a pearly pink which is great if I wanted to go for a more natural look. I love that this lipstick doesn't smell or taste like wax.
Have you bought any new lipsticks? Heard about or used Lipcote before? What do you think of it?
