REVIEW: New Look Matte Lipsticks


Right to left: Blackberry, Mocha & Noir

I had zero intention of getting these. These caught my eye whilst I was queuing up to pay, and I thought that they were a steal at £3.99, and I had to at least try them. I picked up a dark purple (Blackberry), a black (Noir)  and one nude shade (Mocha).

Thoughts & Feelings

SHADES: First off, I LOVE the shades I picked up. They’re so pigmented and since I love darker colours, I’m definitely a fan.
APPLICATION: These literally glided on. They’re so smooth and almost silky. Again, definitely still a fan of these.
MATTE?: I’d say these were more velvet than matte. It doesn’t bug me too much since they do have a little bit of matte to them, but they’re very, very creamy and non drying.
KISS PROOF?: There definitely is some transfer and these 100% will smudge, but since I haven’t got anyone to kiss, it’s not that much of a big deal for me. It will go all over my cheeseburgers though…
DUPE?: There is actually a lot of people who reckon that these are dupes for high end brands, including MAC. Unfortunately, I only have one MAC lipstick, so I can’t really comment on this. These are a list of dupes that I found:

  • Matte Lipstick Sweet Rose is a dupe for MAC Mehr Lipstick
  • Pure Colour Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon is a dupe for Nars Velvet Matte Pencils
  • Pure Colour Lip Liner is a dupe for Kylie Cosmetics Lip Liners
  • Blush Perfume is a dupe for Iconic Coco Chanel Mademoiselle

WOULD I RE-PURCHASE?: Definitely. I honestly can’t wait to get into town and get more shades. Come to mama.

I thought I would mention that unfortunately these are only available in the UK! Sorry to all my overseas readers!

To my UK readers, I do believe that some of these shades have been discontinued unfortunately, but they still do have a big ol’ range to choose from.

    I didn’t get on with the matte liquid lip creams they sold back when their beauty and makeup range was released. Would be interesting to try the lipsticks now though as they are such beautiful shades!. Great post! x

    Evetytime I have visited new look I have had a look at the makeup stand I never got anything because I assumed the quality was bad, now you have made me think again x

      I thought the same! There have been so many brands that I thought were going to be awful since they’re from a clothes shop, or the price is really low, and they’re actually some of best products I have! Definitely worth checking out x
