‘I live by a man’s code, designed to fit a man’s world, yet at the same time I never forget that a woman’s first job is to choose the right shade of lipstick,’ wrote American actress Carole Lombard. There are plenty of brands, shades and textures you can choose from, but when it comes to perfecting and protecting your lip colour, the original lipstick sealer Lipcote is still your best option. Lipcote is specially formulated for a smudge, feather and fade proof finish and (as anyone who loves lipsticks knows) an iconic, award winning British beauty staple. What you might not know though, is that sometimes vanity goes hand in hand with charity and this was the case with Lipcote’s evening in support of Style for Stroke and the Stroke Association that took place in February at The Painted Lady in Shoreditch in London. Among the guests in attendance were Zoe Hardman, Lilah Parsons, Henry Conway, Meryl Fernandes and young stroke survivor, Sarah Scott.
Lipcote is proud to be supporting the Stroke Association and Style for Stroke initiative this Valentine’s by donating 10% of the profits from every bottle sold from 14th February, for one month. Lipcote’s affiliation to the cause stems from the launch of the Style for Stroke initiative, spearheaded by Nick Ede, Fashion and Style PR expert, Founder of Eden Cancan and longstanding supporter of The Stroke Association. As friends of Nick Ede, the Lipcote team was delighted to come on board as a sponsor for the launch event in October 2012. Lipcote is continuing to show its support for the Stroke Association, a charity that works directly with stroke survivors and their families to support patients in their recovery, and leading a main campaign to improve stroke care, to fund research on treatments and to promote prevention. This way, Lipcote will help to raise awareness and support for stroke survivors with communication difficulties (known as aphasia), who may be unable to say those three special words, ‘I Love You’, on the most romantic day of the year.
