It’s definitely time for a cheery lippie to brighten up these grey days, and we thought a lovely Estee Lauder number could do the trick…

The Double Wear lipsticks are, in our opinion, the most modern of the Estee Lauder range, as they offer some great popping colours with a contemporary matte finish. We chose the shade Stay Coral as a welcome alternative to winter’s dark vampy reds and plums, and we have to say we’re pleased with our choice! It’s a happy orange-pink, and although it looks bold in the tube, it’s actually quite a sweet peachy coral, which makes it very easy to wear. It’s not too red or orange, but it’s still bold enough to not wash out our winter skin like a paler peach can. The formula is rich and creamy, and once applied and blotted it dries down to a gorgeous velvety finish which is perfect for sweeping on Lipcote over the top. The pigmentation is impressive with one layer being fully opaque – always a plus for us as it means you use less so it lasts longer! The packaging is, as ever, luxury and sleek, in a navy blue and gold grooved tube, and we love the flat-topped lipstick bullet, which makes precise application a doddle!

We’ll be reaching for this on mornings we feel could do with a bit of sunshine, as it’s one of those lippies that never fails to make the outlook seem a bit brighter! As always, one lucky fan will win it plus a bottle of Lipcote, so head over to our Facebook page to enter.

Love, Lipcote x
