I have been reading Look Magazine for about five years now – I remember buying it religiously in my last year of sixth form, before any of my friends read it and I loved it – especially the beauty section! (I even reviewed a bunch of blonde hair shampoo’s for the Reader Beauty Panel/Test Factor in the mag back in ‘09!).
I was invited along to the press launch of the new Look Beauty range on Tuesday and I can tell you now – this range is going to be big and fabulous!
Eye Shadows – There is going to be a super variety of around 30 e/s (can’t remember exact number!) and they range from shimmers to mattes, and in a wide colour spectrum. I drooled when I saw the shimmery browns and silvers – all of which are perfect to create a smokey eye.
Loud Lip Lipsticks – These lipsticks are really pigmented and creamy and in the most perfect colours, from a bright pink, to a gorgeous coral to a matte pink. The cases are great because they have a magnetic lid. These lip colours do have a slightly weird scent, like plastic sweets but its not too off putting.
Double Lip Hits – A favourite of mine already, this is a double ended lip product which has a lipstick at one end and the exact same shade in a gloss at the other – absolutely perfect for both day and night. I’m very excited about this and want one of every colour!
Lip Slick Glosses – The colours are beaut as you can see above – the coral orange and pink are the ones that stand out to me the most!
Nail Pop Polishes – One word = AMAZING! I think I’m in love with this range of nail varnishes, the colours are just perfect. There is pretty much every colour, and a selection of gemstone-like-topcoats and glitters.
I had a manicure at the event and chose the shade ‘Bling’! Absolutely in love with this nail varnish, the above swatch is with 3 coats and is an opaque baby pink glitter. I’ve never seen a nail polish like this and its my new favourite (even though it is an absolute pain to remove)!
Make Me Blusher & Holiday Glow Bronzer – There are a selection of four blushers and four bronzers, each are pretty standard shades, my favourite being ‘Rosy’ – a pink blush with a slight coral shimmer.
Foundations – I didn’t actually try any of the foundations, powders or highlighters at the event, but I did look for a super pale foundation and the lightest was still too dark and orange for my skin, which is a shame.
Trip Hit Trio Eye Shadows – These discs contain three e/s shades are massive! I bet you would never be able to finish one of these! They are really pigmented and come in a selection of gorgeous colours – I love the brown and greys above.
Now one of the highlights of blogger events is always hanging out with fellow bloggers – they are all incredible girls and I feel very fortunate to have them as friends *cHeEsYyY*.
At this event there was a photo booth where we could be vain and show off Look Beauty’s lipsticks on our lips!
Jen (A Beauty Junkie in London) and Natalya (Filthy Gorgeous Makeup), Lily (llymlrs), Zoe (The London Lipgloss), Kate (Gh0stParties), Milly (Pearls and Poodles), Vivianna (Vivianna Does Makeup) and Corrie (Dizzy Brunette 3)!
I’d like to say a massive thanks to Zoe for organizing this event, I had a lovely night, and for my personalized goody bag – I can’t wait to show everyone the bits I was given to review!
Look Beauty will be exclusive to Superdrug stores and will be appearing over the next few months (its already out in the store in Marble Arch I think!) – hoping it’s released in my local store so I can buy a few more bits!
