Welcome to this week’s instalment of The Beauty Spot. Every week for a month, we’re reviewing long-lasting lipsticks for first kiss-proof red lips! Last week we looked at Vampire by Beauty UK (you can check out the review here, if you missed it). This week, we’re seeing how Decisive by Lush (£14.50) holds up in our indelible lipstick challenge. Keep reading below for some expert advice on keeping that red lipstick firmly on!
Excuse the packaging, it’s a little handbag-damaged ;) but hey, that’s the mark of a much-worn lipstick, right?
Some expert tips from Chloe McCall
I’ve included some very very very basic info in the post on keeping your lipstick on all day, but I’m no expert! Luckily, I know someone who is… One of our lovely resident make-up experts, Chloe McCall has let us in on a little trick to get your red lipstick to last longer:
“I would make sure you keep your lips as moisturised as possible in the run up to the wedding as some lipsticks that last longer can be a bit drying, which isn’t something you want to worry about on your big day. On the day, use MAC Prep & Prime Lip (£12) and a lip liner to prepare the lips, then apply the chosen lipstick using a brush. A little trick to make the lipstick last even longer is to blot the lipstick off after the first application, apply a light dusting of translucent powder and then add another layer of the lipstick – this will really help to lock in the colour.”
