The Great Kiss Off 2009: Prescriptives Colorscope Lipstick

I’m so excited about The Great Kiss Off, everyone seems to be having so much fun. And you know, I’m putting more love in the world. Or at least kissing which I know isn’t always entirely related… Meep.
Anyway, today’s fearless tester is Miss Catherine Ellis from London Town.


1. What did you test for us Catherine Ellis?
Prescriptives Colorscope Lipcolor in Racecar Red

2. How do you feel about the packaging?
The box looks a bit medical in that nice Prescriptives way. The lipstick is in a shiny silver case which is minimal and classic. And makes you feel a bit like you’re from the future.

3. And how you feel about the colour in the tube?
Ooh – it’s a bit scary and red, but be brave!

4. How easy was it to apply?
The lipstick is smooth and creamy and doesn’t dry your lips out at all. The colour is bright though, so you have to concentrate or it can all go a bit Ronald MacDonald.

5. How does it feel on?
Luscious. Moisturised but not too heavy.

6. How long did it last?
It went on for hours during some pretty heavy duty dancing/singing/drinking. In fact, the only thing that really scuppered it was the Sambuca. And that stuff can strip paint.

7. Important stuff. How does it perform under kissing pressure?
If you are a good girl and follow the apply/blot/apply/blot mantra then not too badly. But it is bright red lipstick and I would be lying if I denied the presence of some comedy smearing. But think of that as your badge of kissing honour.

8. And any other exciting kiss off related stories?
I have never worn such a bright red on my lips for fear of making my teeth look all horrid and yellow but this is a really true red and makes your gnashers look pearly white. Buy a lipstick, save a fortune on cosmetic dentistry. The sums just add up.

Well, there you have it, BeautyMecca is officially saving you money.
By encouraging the purchase of lipstick. Who would have thunk it?http://0
