New Look Beauty: Super Matte Liquid Lipstick Review

1 May 2017

I still can't believe that based on the quality of this product that I haven't heard anyone raving about the makeup sold by the fashion retailer New Look! This week I took some time off for myself which was much needed, instead of trying to cram ever moment with work I took time off to spend with family which is pretty much the whole story as to how I found these products. We headed into town to do a little shopping and when I thought I'd gotten out without spending a pound, I saw these babies in the corner of my eye and thought I HAVE TO TRY THOSE OUT NOW. I never shop in New Look really and when in the store I question to why that is, because there clothing, homeware and beauty products are rocking this SS17. I feel like a newbie when it comes to fashion retailers selling makeup, I've never even tried anything from Topshop even though friends of mine have preached how good their lipsticks are. Anyway, the makeup selection in New Look is huge so to try out a new brand I always go for the liquid lipsticks, they tend to be my favourite item by brands and if ones got me hooked I'll no doubt go back for more to try other products. 

Even before swatching I fell in love with the shade 'Gingerbread'! It's an orangey pink shade which is a very pigmented nude, it states Super Matte on the bottle and my god New Look means it! I love everything about this lip product, the name, the colour which is so different than other nudes I've seen out in the market and that it stays on your lips practically all day. I'm not over exaggerating, it stayed on my lips throughout two meals, I drank cola all day and even the swatches on my hand stayed for over 24 hours! When I think of orange shades they're always really dark on the red shade side, or a bold statement which is perfect for Autumn, so to find a nude that works well with my skin tone is perfect. Sometimes I can be too pale for a nude, but the pink tone to the lipstick gives it a warmth. The only thing that I do not like which applies to both is the smell, whilst it's sweet there is something sharp to the scent which just isn't for me.

The second shade I opted for is called 'Fawn' a beautiful grey purple shade which looks much lighter in photographs than it does on the lips! A while back I experienced with colourful shades from Nyx and loved them, so to get a much more subtle shade of purple is right up my street because I can style it into my style much easier. I plan to wear this to work to see if it stands the test Gingerbread did, which I have total faith will last as long on the lips because out of the four swatches I took this shade was so hard to get off! I guess that can be considered as both good and bad, but with colourful shades I'm always thankful to a pigmented shade if it lasts on the lips. 

  I did swatch more lipsticks which I really loved the look of so now that I've tested the product I'm going to try out others! Have you tried any beauty products from New Look before?

Until next time,
