If statistics say that an average girl eats 4-7lbs. of lipstick everyday, I have probably eaten 14lbs already. I can’t seem to find a good lipstick that stays put no matter how long wearing they claim to be. It’s not really about the lipstick, my habit of licking and biting my lip unconsciously is the real culprit.
So when I heard about Lipcote, it really piqued my interest as it might be “the one.” Lipcote is such an easy product to use. Just dab on some product after lipstick application, wait for it to dry, et voila! Expect longer wearing lacquered lips!
Too good to be true? We’ll see…
I was so excited to try this out and even record the long wear claim. I have been using it for two days now and I’m really impressed. I used it with my Clinique Chubby Stick Intense since the product never seems to stay even for just an hour. I thought my chubby stick would be the best benchmark for experiment.
So I normally went on with my first application of lipstick in the morning around 6-7am and applied Lipcote over it. There was a slight tingling sensation, but it was manageable. However, I don’t think you can use this if you have chapped or overly dry lips as I could imagine the torturing pain.
Anyway, after lunch, I checked on my lips at around 1-2pm, it was impressively intact. Normally, my lips would be pale at this time. With Lipcote on, although my lipstick wasn’t as bright or fresh as the first application and I see some dry patches, I was pleased that I still had some lip color on.
Would I recommend this product? Yes, of course! It’s going to save my lips from looking weirdly pale when I’m out at night.
Stay tuned for my Beauty Battle product comparison of Lipcote and the local version that I was able to buy also at Beauty MNL.
