Review: Look Beauty Double Hit Lip in Rose Riot
I’ve raved about this lip product several times, but still not had the chance to blog about it. I wasn’t that fussed about the Look Beauty range. A beauty range coming from a magazine sounded a bit toy-in-cereal-box to me, but I had a lovely time at the launch and we were given great goody bags to take home.
This product consists of a supposedly matte lipstick (I wouldn’t say matte as it has quite a frost/sheen to it) at one end, and a lipgloss at the other. You can use each side alone or together.
This product really stuck out to me, despite the colour being far too bright for me (in the packaging) and also the small fact that I never, ever wear lipgloss.
I have quite dry lips, lipsticks rarely last on me so mostly, I don’t bother much. However, this lipstick has some serious staying power. It almost sets on your lips, and stays for hours. It reminds me of NARS Orgasm, that sort of peachy pink with a gold sheen.
Although I’m not a fan of lipgloss (I think it looks a bit overdone on me, and also it’s sticky and my hair gets stuck in it), I use this most days when I’m heading out. As you can see in the picture above, it’s not overly glossy and leaves quite a subtle sheen to the lips without that sticky, unnatural feeling. It also smells incredible!
