Brand Name: FashionistA Double Take Long Wear Lipstick

Colour: Raspberry

Price: £7

Lipcote Rating: 4.5 / 5

FashionistA is a new beauty brand at Superdrug, and although we’re not keen on the name, we thought we’d give the lippies a try…

We chose the shade Raspberry. It’s a bold pink colour with neutral undertones, verging on cool, which means it’s one of those ones that makes your teeth appear whiter and the whites of your eyes look brighter. We’re impressed with the great pigmentation, especially considering the low price, and it’s opaque in 1 coat; we used 2 just to even it out a bit. The finish is satiny so we blotted each coat before applying our Lipcote, but once on it didn’t budge until we wanted to remove it. The good saturation of colour also means this would work great as a lip stain – a bit dabbed on the lips with your finger gives a really nice subtle hint of colour, without having to go all out with the bold shade. It has a light vanilla scent to it which reminds us of MAC lipsticks, and comes in a sleek high-shine red tube making it easy to spot in your makeup bag.

This lippie has surpassed our expectations and we’re actually very fond of it now! Plus it’s a great shade to see us into spring. We’re updating our competitions at the moment, so this isn’t available to win this week, but if you keep a look out you’ll see it included in a bumper beauty giveaway with loads of other goodies when our new competition format arrives!

Love, Lipcote x
