Decisively Lush! A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 4, 2015


Brand Name: Lush Liquid Lipstick

Colour: Decisive

Price: £14.50

Lipcote Rating: 4.6 / 5

Lush is a brand synonymous with natural, fresh, hand made products at reasonable prices, and their shops always have fantastic soapy smells wafting out of them when we walk past!

We chose the liquid lipstick in Decisive, which Lush describes as a vintage cherry red. It has subtle blue undertones which give it that sought-after teeth whitening element, and in the bottle it has the tiniest shimmering hint of blue, but this isn’t noticeable once on. It applies with a doe-foot sponge applicator, like the ones you often see in lip gloss tubes. This is a novel way to apply lipstick for us, and it takes a bit of getting used to, but the sponge tip actually works really nicely to smooth the creamy pigment into the lips and neatly shape the edges. The texture of the lipstick in the bottle looks like it might have little lumps or gritty bits in the formula, but it’s actually very smooth and it’s so highly pigmented that it feels like you can apply it thinner than normal wax-based lipsticks whilst still getting a fantastic intensity of colour. It is hydrating and comfortable to wear, and once blotted twice and covered with a sweep of Lipcote it lasted all day for us, including through lunch. Finally, although we think the price is a bit steep at £14.50 for a lipstick from a company better known for their bath and body products than their makeup offering, we have to say that we actually think the formula is so good that the price tag is justified!

In summary, we weren’t expecting much from Lush but this lippie has really earned its high score and surpassed our expectations! As always, don’t forget to enter our giveaway over on the app on our Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning it, plus a Lipcote!

Love, Lipcote x
