Blog Event :: Look Beauty

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Last night I attended the super swishness that was the Look Beauty event. Do you want to hear about it? Then read on oh chummy.

The beauty brains at Look magazine have put their glossy haired heads together and come up with a fabulous beauty range, comprising of over 100 beauty products ranging from nail polish to palettes, lashes to lipstick duos. It has something for everyone.


We were all given fabulous goodie bags and I was mightily impressed with this cute card. Trust me to pick that as my favourite thing! Haha! No, no, my favourite thing was actually this popsicle pink lipstick. More on that later.


With 32 nail varnish colours to choose from, whether you're a girlie girl or a gothic girl, you'll find your shade.


I love this shade, it reminds me of an Illamasqua one from last year, except £4 is much more managable than the £13ish that one was!


A little snap shot of the very reasonable prices. Even the huge interchangeable eyeshadow palettes were only £15. Also, £2 from every sale (which is A LOT) will go to the charity 'Look Good...Feel Better'. This charity is for women fighting cancer and allows them the opportunity to learn how to apply makeup to suit their new needs. Ladies are taught by professional makeup artists how to do things like draw in eyebrows or cool down a flushed complexion.

I would have loved for my own Mother to have had such an opportunity before she passed away but sadly Look Good...Feel Better only came to England in 1994 (it began in America in 1989). It now has 64 workshops across the country and a vast variety of brands denote products to this very worthy cause.

If you believe in the afterlife, do take a little moment to say (in your head or out loud), "Hello Mummy Glitter, hope you're enjoying heaven". I do that quite often.

Hat's off to Look Beauty for being so generous. I think this is the best thing about the entire range.


If you're a blusher girl, you're covered.


I love these! I must admit, I was pretty pessimistic at first. I thought the clear plastic packaging was a bit poopy and that the colours would be chalky. I hold my hands up and take it back. The packaging has a satisfying chunkiness and the pigment in the colours I swatched was AMAZING. Seriously, please go to Superdrug and give these a little swatch, they are fantastic. Velvety and beautiful. We were told that wet they are superb too. EEEeeeeeexcited!


A quick swatch shot. Excellent colour pay off.

The lip range comprises of lipsticks, lipglosses and a duo that contains both. Liptastic!! I have my eye on that very dark red one and the nudey corally duos. Yum!


I didn't swatch these but the palettes have interchangeable segments, so when they bring out new ones, you can refresh your makeup and mix and match til your heart's content. I love things that you can customise so this is another winner for me.


As an eyelashaholic, this floats my boat. I wish I had picked this up and looked at it more closely. I'm intrigued by all the little accessories.


And here we have it, the goodie bag. OOhhhhh yyeaaahh!



My favourite goodie bag treat, the aforementioned lipstick in 'Rock Candy'. I love the names in this range. My coral lipstick is called 'Juicy'. Yay!!

As if all that wasn't enough, Look Beauty had also put on this very cool photobooth dealio which we could all jump in, pose and take the prints home. I thought it was sooooo much fun and suspect Zoe and I may have overdone it somewhat!


How many bloggers can you fit in a booth? Nine. I'd like to apologise now to Zoe for the slight dry humping situation, I don't know what came over me!

All in all, I had the funnest night in a long time. The products were brilliant, the booth was a hoot, but most of all, it was just smashing to chitchat to all the other bloggers. I had a particularly long chat with Milly and meeting Anna of Vivianna Does Makeup was also a pleasure. Lily looked ever the fashionista, Kate had some pretty insightful tips re PRs and it was lovely to catch up with Jen again. Emma has the snazziest spotty sheer dress with customised sleeves I ever did see, Lily Pebbles wins it for the shmexy sparkly top award (I emailed her and it was from Forever 21 if anyone was lusting after it as much as I was!), and Corrie was a second away from having me break out into Disney song! Most of all, the tip top gal of the night HAS to be my original chummy Zoella, who even went out of her to escort me on the tube all the way back to Euston- that's friendship for you. <3

A great big thank you has to go to Zoe of The London Lipgloss for setting this event up and being the hostess avec la mostess! Woop woop and a high five to you Zoe! Also (Gosh I feel like I'm at the Oscars trying to remember everyone) a little shoutout to Victoria who I like to call 'Vixypops' because after a bus/taxi/train fiasco she couldn't make it *blue face*.

What do you think of this range? I'm excited for it!

Toodlepip!

  7. You literally got given the exact goodie bag as the press folk and fellow IPC Media beauty girls! I love that they're doing something for Look Good...Feel Better in relation to the wonderful Sophie aka Look's Beauty Editor - always nice to have a charitable cause made all pretty with good cosmetics.
