Simply Lippy Challenge Day 165 | Penneys PS… Lipstick &Gloss Lip Duo in Shade Brave

Today I opted for another lipstick and gloss duo from Penneys in a gorgeous, rich berry shade called Brave. Usually this colour would remind me of Autumn, but today I wanted something with a rich tone and this was the perfect choice.


I’ve worn these lip duos several times throughout the challenge so far in both strong and light colours, but today’s shade is by far the boldest shade and therefore I had high hopes for both the pigment and the finish.


The lipstick itself isn’t particularly moisturising, so don’t be expecting much when it comes to that, but the consistency is  lovely and smooth and applies so easily on to the lips if you do try it.


However, on the plus side, the pigment is just gorgeous and the colour is very buildable too. In fact it’s so bold and buildable, I’m really not sure it needs the gloss element because I found today that when I applied the gloss over the lipstick, it kind of dragged the colour a bit underneath.

I do find that the lasting power isn’t great so you will have to apply it several times throughout the day, but given this is a budget lippy, I don’t think that’s really an issue.

I was lucky enough to be sent this lippy from the lovely ladies in Penneys to try out, and I adore the shade, but I’m just not sure if I would purchase it in the future.

Having said that, if they had the lipstick part as a stand alone lippy shade in their matte formula, I’m pretty sure I’d wear it all the time because it is just gorge!
