Look Beauty Double Hit Lip




I've been wanting to try some of the Look Beauty products for quite a while now but nowhere near me was selling them. I only saw them once IRL in the Superdrug in Meadowhall but the display was half empty and everything left had already been used, ew. So as soon as I saw that they had started selling products online I made an order. One of the things that stood out to me was their Double Hit Lip. This product has two ends, one side is a lipstick and the other is a gloss. You can use either end alone or both together which is what I think produces the nicest look. I purchased three shades: Rose Riot, Citrus Kick & Pink Punch. In all of these photos I am wearing the lipstick combined with the lipgloss.




Rose Riot is a warm pink colour. You can't really tell in the photos as the gloss pretty much covers over it but the lipstick actually has a lovely golden sheen running through it. It looks like NARS Orgasm blush but in lipstick form. This one stayed on my lips for a good few hours before disappearing. I love how this colour looks on me so I can see myself wearing this shade a lot.




The one that I actually like best out of the three I got is Citrus Kick. I'm not normally a nude or coral lipstick person, I tend to stick to pinks, but this colour is so beautiful. Swatched on my hand it looks really quite orange but once applied it merges with the natural pink in my lips to create a lovely soft coral. I think this is probably the most flattering shade out of them all and I can imagine this one suiting a lot of people. The lipstick itself is very moisturising & somewhat similar to the Revlon Lip Butters or MAC's glaze formula. This one didn't last very long on me though, it seems to be a lot sheerer than the other two colours.




Pink Punch is a neon blue-toned pink. Its ridiculously bright & not for the faint hearted. I think the lipstick colour is quite similar to Barry M 62 but in a much nicer formula. Its far more moisturising & really glides on. This one stayed on my lips the longest & even after the gloss wore off, there was still a slight pink stain. It wears really well in that you don't get patchy lips once it starts to fade.

Overall I really like these lip products, the colours are just so lovely. The lipgloss has the most gorgeous vanilla scent which might be overpowering to some people but I think its divine. The gloss doesn't feel sticky on my lips either. I don't find them to be particularly long lasting which might be due to the gloss on top but they will stay a couple of hours before needing re-application. I like the colours I chose so much that I'm happy to top up with them throughout the day. The only real bad point I can think of is it that it doesn't seem like you get a lot of lipstick in the tube. The bullet looks really small compared to my other lipsticks but I suppose its probably to make room for the gloss half. They only cost £7 each though so that price for what is essentially two products seems pretty decent to me. You can purchase these from certain branches of Superdrug or from the Look Beauty website.

  5. Ooh, these colours look nice. But since I am completely averse to anything lipgloss and you say there isn't a huge amount of lipstick in them, it would be kind of silly of me to buy one!
