Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director at Estee Lauder says ‘Lipstick makes a woman sensual, powerful and kissable’ and we’d have to agree…

We chose Red Tango Crème, a vibrant and spicy red. It has warm undertones whilst still being a classic red shade, with no shimmer. The formula is buttery and rich, and glides on easily without dragging. We got great colour in one layer, although it was even better with 2, and it’s incredibly pigmented which makes the finish nice and even. The packaging is classic Estee Lauder, or what we’d term ‘old-school glamour’, with the recognisable gold tube, elegant logo in the centre opening, and a clear glass cube at the bottom with the lipstick shade inside, making it perfect to find the colour you’re looking for without removing the lid. The satin crème finish gives this lippie serious wow-factor, so we recommend wearing it with as little other makeup as possible, but healthy, dewy skin and bold brows. With a sweep of Lipcote over the top it lasted us through a whole day of work, eating and nattering, although we’d definitely advise you make sure to trace the edges of your lips with Lipcote carefully with this one, as the slightly more creamy lipstick formula has a tendency to bleed more than completely matte ones, so Lipcote’s a must to keep it looking pristine!

Overall this is a definite winner for us, and another classic red to add to our collection. And as usual you can win it, plus a bottle of Lipcote – just look out for our lipstick giveaway over on our Facebook page!

Good luck!

Love, Lipcote x
