Advantages: Cheap, effective, lasts ages
Disadvantages: Hard to remove lipstick
Although I don't usually wear make up, when I do, I like it to stay put, and my lipstick always seems to wear off quickly. So when I discovered Lipcote a few years ago, I thouht I'd try it. It promised to fix my lipstick, without smudging, a promise I just had to challenge.
Lipcote comes in a small glass bottle, abot 10ml or so I guess. It is a colourless liquid which looks rather like clear nail polish, and is in the same type of bottle, with a small brush built into the lid.
To use Lipcote, apply your lipstick and blot as usual, then paint a thin coat of Lipcote over it. It will tingle slightly for a few seconds or so, which is normal, and nothing to worry about. You should avoid eating or drinking for about five minutes after applying the Lipcote, in order to make sure it's completely dry.
Lipcote is one of the rare products that actually works exacty as it promises. My lipstick always stays on for as long as I need it to, even when I'm eating or drinking. The only (very slight) disadvantage is that it can sometimes be hard to remove your lipstick when you want to! Definitely recommended.
