I am definitely a lipstick gal. Whilst I may occasionally like to try the odd lipgloss, my heart will always belong to a brand new, untouched lipstick bullet - is there anything more satisfying?
At the weekend this gorgeous girly posted a Look Beauty haul on Instagram. They were apparently half price in Superdrug... What did that mean? On Saturday I dashed out to my nearest Superdrug to fill my boots.
I got a whole lotta lovely stuff but wanted to share some Lipstick Porn with you today.
I picked up these four shades for my makeup kit...
Berry Vamp is a deep plum, Rock Candy is a pastel barbie pink, Tangerine Cream is a creamy pale orange and Hyper Melon is a zingy orange-watermelon colour.
I've not tried these enough to warrant a full review yet but, the formulation is matte and extremely pigmented. They are creamy on the lips and opaque after one coat. I'm not usually one to cover the negatives but I had to say that although the packaging looks pretty, it's extremely cheap feeling and flimsy and sometimes the magnetic clasp fails meaning is comes open in your bag.
At full price they are £7, which honestly I would never pay, that's on par with Revlon and I'd sooner pick something up from there. But for £3.50 they are a steal. It's also rare to find matte finish lipsticks in trend shades, these are going to be chopped up and melted down into my muji palettes very soon!
The people at Look Beauty are very clever indeed, they have also created a range of lipliners that exactly match the lipsticks, meaning no more hunting for the perfect shade of red for your new lippy. The liners are a really good dupe for Mac Prolongwear Lip Pencils as they are so creamy and long lasting. They are so good, I had to get four to match my new lipsticks!!
Have you picked up anything from the Look Beauty sale? Any more lipstick recommendations?
