Swatches: Look Beauty Triple Hit Eyeshadow Trios in Cool Glam and Party Fever


Look Beauty is a new range of affordable makeup, brought to the High Street by the beauty team at Look Magazine.  I find this a little bit strange, because I'd always associated Look Magazine with more celebrity gossip and fashion than makeup and beauty, but hey.  One of the unusual things about the range is that an unspecified donation will be made for each purchase to Look Good... Feel Better, a charity that provides makeup and style advice to women undergoing treatment for cancer.

These Triple Hit eyeshadow trios cost a remarkably tiny £4 each.  Each compact contains a sizeable dome of eyeshadow, divided into three colours.  The shadows are clearly of the baked mineral variety, which led me to expect plenty of shimmery goodness, and a buildable medium pigmentation.

Cool Glam

Cool Glam

Cool Glam is made up of a mid-blue, shimmering turquoise, and a greyish toned mauve.  As expected, the three shades are all of medium pigmentation - it took a couple of swipes to build up the swatches to this level of intensity.

Party Fever

Party Fever

Party Fever contains a rich blue toned purple, and pale lilac, and a slightly pink toned white highlight shade.  Again, they're medium pigmentation, and required a couple of passes to build up the opacity shown above.  

Overall I'm pretty impressed with these shadows - I love the high shimmer finish.  Admittedly, you'll need to build up the colour to get a punchy shot of colour, but for the price, that's a reasonable trade off.  The texture of the shadows isn't as silky smooth as a more expensive eyeshadow, but they're still blendable and buildable with minimal fallout.  Impressive stuff.

You'll find Look Beauty products at Superdrug stores now - for a new range, there's a pretty decent number of products available, from foundation to mascara to lipgloss to blush to polish.  At £4, these Triple Hit eyeshadows are amongst the cheapest product, with the most spendy costing around £12.

  3. I have cool rock and on my eyes the brown colour comes off as gold glitter, and if you rub all three colours together, you get a smoky grey.
    Hope this helped and I love this!
