LOOK Beauty Lipstick 'Toffee Cup'

Price: £7.00
Shade: Toffee Cup, 4 other shades in the range.
Available: Superdrug

After finishing my Christmas shopping today I decided with my last ten pound note I'd have a little wander round Superdrug and treat myself. Any new stands immediately catch my attention so within minutes I was hovering by the LOOK Beauty counter, oohing and ahhing over new products. Torn between their lipsticks, nail varnishes and double ended lipstick/gloss I decided to play it safe and settle on a nude lipstick for £7 - not very adventurous I know!

'Toffee Cup' is quite peach/salmon toned, a bit like Mac Myth and applies very smoothly thanks to the creamy, soft texture. The pigmentation isn't as good as other nude lipsticks I've tried but the colour can be built up without looking like you have a lot of product on your lips. The finish is slightly glossy thanks to the moisturising formula, meaning it doesn't cling on to dry patches - which is never a good look.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, all the products are reasonably priced and seem good quality, the only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the packaging. The design on the outer casing is nice enough but the shape makes it a bit awkward to hold and it does feel a bit flimsy, although the magnetic lid means it wont fly around in your purse! I definitely want to try a few other products from the range!

  1. I'm trying to hard to avoid Superdrug as I know I'll just want to buy sooo much from the Look range! This colour looks gorgeous though..so tempting to go and get one tomorrow ha x


  2. @Cigdem - haha, don't do it if you're trying to save their range is actually really nice you'll end up spending money, no doubt! xx

  5. Ah I fell in love with this lippie at the event, can't wait for it to launch in my local superdrug! x

  6. I love Toffee Cup! It looks quite pink on my lips whereas just looking at it it looks nudey peach. I still can't get used to it being magnetic though, everytime I put the lid on I keep pushing it down expecting it to click like a normal lipstick lol xx

  8. All the Look lipsticks look lovely! I love this colour though.
