Powerful Pink! A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 4, 2015


Brand Name: Daniel Sandler Luxury Matte Lipstick

Colour: Gigi

Price: £13.25

Lipcote Rating: 4.5 / 5

Daniel Sandler has long been known for his iconic products such as Watercolour Blush, and he’s highly respected as an international makeup artist, but since expanding his range, his fantastic products have become much more easily available for all of us who love makeup artist quality at affordable prices!

We chose the Luxury Matte Lipstick in the shade Gigi, a bright pink. It’s a true fuchsia with cool undertones and although it is very bold it’s not garish in the way some pinks can be, which means it still looks sophisticated! The formula is impressive, especially considering it’s in the under £15 price bracket, and it’s silky and hydrating without being greasy or shiny so it’s still true to its ‘matte’ name. It contains hyaluronic acid, a hot ingredient in beauty at the moment due to it’s ability to deeply hydrate skin without the need for oil, which is part of the reason the lippie is so nicely smoothing and comfortable to wear. The packaging is simple and sleek in a grey-silver tube with the logo in white down the side, continuing the theme of great quality products that don’t need to scream out ‘luxury’ as their performance says it all for them! It’s a great shade for freshening up your look, but also if you’re a lipstick newbie and don’t dare to try red just yet, it’s just as bold and powerful as red whilst not being quite so in-your-face!

Overall you can probably tell that we’re smitten with this lipstick, so much so that we’re rushing out to try the other shades in the range! It’s definitely a welcome addition to our Spring makeup bags. And as usual, 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!
