Look Beauty Range, coming to Superdrug stores.
I was invited to attend the launch of Look magazine's beauty range last week, Look magazine is a bit special to me as it was the magazine that got me truly interested in fashion. When I left behind the countryside at 16 and moved to the city, Look magazine was my way of finding myself and really getting into fashion and thinking about what to wear. I used to buy every issue, and often still buy it now.
Look is the first magazine to launch it's own beauty line, so I was interested to see what they had to offer. At first glance, you can see the products are nicely packaged, and although the range is reasonably priced, they don't look "cheap". I think the colours, especially the nail polishes, really stand out and catch the eye. There is such a wide and varied selection of shades, which is great for a high-street (or "drug store") brand.
I think the range has a lot to offer, from swatching I can tell you the eyeshadows are incredible! Excellent quality and colour pay off, and the shades are so lovely. There are a few there that look like they could create a new generation of Naked palette.
I had a lovely night, the photobooth was really fun (we managed to fit 9 of us in!) and the gorgeous Zoe handpicked the goodie bags. She chose me some lovely things, the Double Lip Hit Lipstick and Gloss in Rose Riot has been used daily since I got it and the mascara and blushers are also fantastic.
Overall, I'm really impressed with this brand, I think it has a great selection of products - they've covered all bases with primers, powders, eyeshadow trios and the "How To..." sets. The prices are great for the quality they offer, and I'm looking forward to doing full reviews over the coming weeks.
