Beauty Chat: New Look Pure Colour

20 Oct 2015

UK based plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel shares her favourite bits & bobs from New Look's beauty line, Pure Colour. 

I can't be the only person who is a wee bit skeptical when a fashion brand releases their own beauty line, right? Like, you're good at the whole clothes thing, why not stick to that, right? Well, I'm pleased to say that I was pleasantly surprised by New Look's Pure Colour range. I particularly love their lip liners! And now, off to the swatches which I find incredibly awkward! Haha! 

Now, I'll be honest. This is my first experience with lip liner. I know. I know. HOW did I make it to age 25 without ever giving lip liner a go?! Well, I've converted! Unless I'm doing a particular style like a lip ombre, I use liner to define my lips as well as provide a sturdy base for my lipstick. For their price (£1.99!!!) these liners have great pigment payoff. Since buying these liners I've purchased similar products from a couple other brands. One of these cost £1, and one cost £4.99. These babies from New Look outperformed BOTH of those products! You can see them in action above both a la carte, and with a lippy on top. (lippy details and links to purchase below) 

Now, idk if you've noticed but my lashes are HUGE. Like, incredibly long with no need for a curler. Thanks for the DNA, Mum! However, if I go overboard on mascara they tend to get a bit clumpy. Because of this, the only real reason I wear false lashes is to add volume, not length. As you can see in these photos, even with the falsies there's not much added length (which I love) just added volume and colour.  


I will say, I trimmed these lashes to fit my eyes better. This is 100% an absolutely necessary step with any and all false lashes. and I also picked up a bottle of lash glue as the glue provided was VERY wee and a bit tricky to apply. Those tiny complaints aside, I'm already excited to pick up a couple more Pure Colour lip liners, and maybe a matte lip crayon and nail polish or two!
