'When a product's been around for 50 years, you know it's a goody. [a href="http://www.boots.com/en/Lipcote_795/" target="_blank">Lipcote[/a] always intrigued me as a youngster, what was that cardboard box concealing? During last year's lipstick revival I was wearing varying shades of red every day, and couldn't understand why my lip liner wasn't holding my lipstick as the beautician had promised. It turns out the one thing I was missing was Lipcote, and in this sweltering heat you don't stand a chance of keeping your lipstick on your lips without it. Much like a top coat, you just need a sweep to seal in the colour, which will keep you going until the morning after; a festival must-have for sure.'
