I haven't seen this 'Original Lipstick Sealer' for years but Lipcote is now definitely back on my radar. For beauty novices, it is a quick dry transparent product that goes over the top of lipstick to seal it in. 

It basically stops your lipstick from smudging, fading or feathering at the edges (this happens more to older lips as the lipstick tends to move into any lines around the mouth - not a good look). 
Apparently Lipcote has been sold for 50 years. Wow. See below for the various packing reincarnations over the decades.

It also now comes in recyclable packing and I still love the handiness of the neat little handbag-sized bottle. The PR assures me the ingredients have not been tested on animals and contain no animal derivatives - so you are putting a vegetarian product on your lips!

TO BUY:  £3.49, Lipcote is also available at Boots and Superdrug.
