The Little Bottle Your Lips Can't Live Without


After finally starting to build up a little collection of lovely MAC lippies (including the classic Ruby Woo red),  I decided I needed to up my game if I wanted my lipsticks to stay put all day. After all, the more you reapply, the more product you use and the quicker it runs out! 

I used to work 12 hours a day, 5 days a week, outside in the rain, sun and snow at a local theme park and knew a girl who would ALWAYS have perfect red lipstick on, all except I never ever saw her re-apply. Ever. Even at the end of the night, it would remain looking perfectly applied - needless to say I was envious! I managed to grab her one evening (not literally, people!) and asked how the hell she managed to keep her lipstick on all day without redoing it over and over again throughout the day. She pulled out a little bottle of Lipcote and called it her lifesaver. She told me how to use it, and the next morning I was straight into Boots at 9am snatching myself up a bottle!


This stuff is wonderful. It's so wonderful, that the word 'wonderful' doesn't even do it justice. Here's how it works: 
Apply your lipliner/lipstick like normal, and blot once.
Apply another coat, and blot again.
Brush Lipcote over your lips, paying close attention to the edges.
Make sure not to move your lips until it's dry, or it'll crease and go all weird! 

I won't lie, if you put this onto dry lips it stings like a b!*$%, so make sure you grab yourself a lip balm beforehand! Once it's all dry you can move your lips as normal, eat, drink, kiss and be merry and I promise you, your lippy will not budge. My boyfriend wouldn't let me kiss him on the cheek at first because he thought I'd leave red smudges all over his face, and even HE was amazed when I left no mark whatsoever. See, it even amazes boys haha.

Ignore the slightly stained brush, it isn't usually red haha
Yeah it smells kinda weird and it does kind of feel like you're applying nail varnish to your lips, but the pros dramatically outweigh those cons and I won't hold back when I say it's made life SO much easier not having to worry about my lip colour all the time, constantly having to ask if it's come off every time I have a drink! 

Let me know your thoughts on Lipcote if you've tried it, and if not, then what are you waiting for?! You won't regret it. I promise. 

Big love,
