Today I shall be reviewing the British Beauty Classic - Lipcote. For those few people out there who haven't heard of this, it's a lipstick sealer to make your lipstick last longer. I received this in an event goody bag and it retails for £3.69.
It comes in a nail varnish format with a brush applicator.
I've tested this out a few times and unfortunately I wasn't a fan. I'm not a lipstick re-applier in the slightest as I get all paranoid about whipping out a lipstick in public (not much of a beauty blogger) so I really wanted to like this but sadly it just didn't work for me.
You are meant to apply your lipstick, then brush a few dots of this on and keep your lips apart for a little while so it can dry. It has a serious hit of alcohol when you sniff it (I can't detect any vanilla at all so can't imagine what the original scent was like) and it stings the lips when you first apply it. I'm not talking a little plumping tingle, I'm talking full on stinging. I could have forgiven all of this if it worked buuuutt....
So, sadly despite rooting for this 'British classic', it just didn't work for me. Are you a fan?
Till next time...Toodles! :)
