Today’s Simply Lippy choice is another brilliant lip product from Penneys’ PS… collection (Primark for my non-Irish followers), and is one of their matte lipstick crayons. Once again, this is a lip product I hadn’t tried before now, but the lovely ladies from Penneys sent it to me a few weeks ago and I loved the look of it.
The shade, Vamp, is a gorgeous dark purple berry shade, and we all know I love a berry lip. I don’t often use lip crayons but when I do, I generally really like them and this one is no different.
Application is so easy with the creamy formula, and once again the pigment is spot on, probably due to its soft finish which I would describe as a satin matte rather than a more traditional matte. Its lasting power is its only flaw, but that can be forgiven due to its great price point.
It’s not a shade I would wear every day as it’s very dark purple, and ‘vampy’ as the title suggests, but I love it nonetheless! There’s something so sultry about a very dark lip and every once in a while it is a fab shade to wear.
I’m going for a girly night out with my Mum tonight and therefore decided to go for a strong makeup look to match this lip colour. I opted for a grey/purple smokey eye and I think it works well with the berry lip. It’s not a look I would usually chose for daytime, but as it’s Friday I thought, what the hell!
I even bumped into an old friend of mine who complimented it so that’s always lovely to hear. It’s strong and bold, but if you can’t be adventurous on a Friday then why can you be?!
What do you guys think of this shade? I know it’s not going to be to everyone’s taste so I’d love to hear your thoughts.
