Happy Friday everyone! Although, it is Friday 13th and me being a superstitious kind of person, I’m never really that fond of Friday the 13th. Ridiculous, I know! It might explain why I’ve been feeling a bit lethargic today though, I feel like I never really woke up this morning. Does anyone else get days like that?!
Anyway, if you follow me on snapchat, yesterday you will have seen me talk about the amazing box of lippy goodies that the lovely ladies in Penneys sent me, to help me along on my Simpy Lippy challenge (Primark for my non-Irish followers). I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of lipsticks I got, and I’m so excited to get using and showing them all to you.
You may have heard me talk about some of the PS Pro beauty products before – for me, last year Penneys completely brought their A-Game when it came to some of their beauty releases. Their powder contour palette is brilliant, their highlighting pens are to die for, and their lipsticks really stand up against some of the best in the business. Us Irish girls love a bit of Penneys, and when it comes to beauty, it’s no different.
The only lip product I have tried up to now was one of their lip crayons, so for today’s challenge I’m testing out one of their long lasting matte lipsticks in a caramel brown shade called, Bronco. When I first opened this lipstick I loved the warm-toned look of it, and was very pleasantly surprised to find that the colour pigment is equally as good when applied. It gives your lips the most gorgeous, rich caramel tone and smells deliciously of caramel too!
I’ve become a massive fan of matte finishes over the past few years and this lippy is a great option. It is a very creamy matte, isn’t drying on the lips, and, the lasting power is pretty good too.
But the biggest plus about this lipstick? It costs €2. Yep. No, seriously yep, only €2. I mean lads, where would you be going? A budget beauty bargain at its finest!
If you’re enjoying my challenge so far, I’d really love for you to please come follow me over on social media too. I post pretty pictures on Instagram, chat all things beauty releases and favourites on Twitter, and share weekly lipstick videos on Facebook. And I’ve got my very own challenge hashtags as well – #simplylippy and #365days365shades, and you can follow my journey by searching for those too.
Tomorrow I’ll be reaching the two week mark so make sure you watch out for my weekly round up video on Facebook which will be uploaded in the morning.
