New Look Beauty Review


Last month I was walking through New Look when I noticed that our store had started to stock the revamped New Look beauty range so, of course, I got ridiculously excited. 
I decided to pick up the 4 Pack Oval Brush Set. After seeing similar brushes being raved about by a whole bunch of beauty bloggers and knowing that these brushes can be preeeetty expensive I was suprised to find out that this set of 4 cost only £19.99! Basically, it would have been rude not to try them. 
I also picked up two of the stick foundations in the shades Natural Beige and Chocolate. I had been wanting to try a stick foundation and with these costing just £4.99 I thought I'd give them a try. The Natural Beige shade is perfect for my skin tone and I picked up the Chocolate shade to try as a cream contour 


The Oval Brush Set contains a large foundation brush, a bronzer/blusher brush, a contour brush and a concealer brush. I love the style of them with the black handle and silver hardware, personally I think they look a lot more expensive than they are. My only fault would be that the handle is a little flimsy, but I tend to automatically hold the oval rather than the brush anyway as I find it a more comfortable and easy way to control the application of foundation.


I've been wearing the stick foundation for over a month now so that I could do a proper review and.. I absolutely love it! For me, it's the perfect everyday foundation, the product is really creamy and so application is nice and easy which is great (especially for those early mornings before work when you try to do your makeup with your eyes half shut!)


The Chocolate shade I was using to cream contour is also really impressive! It's the perfect shade for my skin tone and again blends really nicely into the foundation so you don't end up with any harsh lines. 
I've been applying the foundation and contour with the foundation brush and the contour brush from the set and it leaves a really even finish on the skin which you can see below


Overall I've been really impressed with the New Look beauty products that I have tried so far. The brushes are super soft and apply the foundation really well without eating up all the product. PLUS (big plus) none of the hairs in the brush fall out, which is what I was expecting given the price of the set! 
The foundation sticks were also amazing, they leave you with a medium coverage which you can build up and have an in between finish, not super glowy but not really matte either. It also has pretty good staying power and lasts for most of the day without going patchy
 The only thing I would suggest is using a powder to set and lock in the foundation (or a setting spray) as I did find it transferred on to my hand if I touched my face

I will definitely be picking up more products from the range soon as I have been pleasantly surprised with these ones! 
Have you tried any products from the latest New Look beauty range yet?
