Look Beauty Loud Lips Lipstick
I popped into Superdrug the other day to have a look at the make up - I don't go into Superdrug that often any more for make up, I tend to go to Debenhams or Boots. I thought I would go in to have a little wander round and I noticed Look Beauty make up. I have heard a couple of things about their lipsticks, so I decided to pick up the shade 02, Tangerine Cream.
The packaging reminds me of Burberry lipsticks, although obviously not quite as luxurious considering the price difference! The lipstick has a magnetic closure which I really like - oh the little things that can excite me!
The lipstick itself is a lovely creamy texture. I swatched this on my hand in the shop and I honestly couldn't believe how creamy it was considering the price. It's very very creamy and almost feels slightly moisturising on the lips. My lips were slightly dry and I didn't use a lip balm before this because as soon as I got home I just wanted to try it on. It did cling slightly and sink into any dry bits (lovely) on my lips so I took it off, applied a lip balm and applied this lipstick again and it was so much better! It glided on so smoothly and left a gorgeous finish.
In the bullet this looks more orange than pink and I was slightly disappointed because once on the lips it is definitely more pink than orange. It is however still a gorgeous peachy pink colour with a small hint of orange. (How many times can I say pink and orange! Pink, orange, pink, orange.)
I would say the finish this leaves on the lips is in between being matte and having a very slight glossy sheen to it. I really like this lipstick and it doesn't dry out my lips at all, however if my lips are already dry when I apply it then it does accentuate that. Just apply a lip balm first and everything will be fine and dandy!
I would love to go and purchase more of these lipsticks in other colours because this one is so lovely, however there are only 5 colours altogether and none of the others appealed to me. I really like this lipstick and it's available from Superdrug for £7.
