During the week I came home to the most amazing package from the lovely ladies in Penneys; four of their new matte lip kits in the most incredible bold shades. As you can imagine, I was super excited to give these a go so chose a deep red as my Day 195 choice.
First things first: I cannot believe these are from Penneys! The pigment is quite literally, insane it’s so good, and honestly could easily hold its own against any of the top liquid matte lipsticks on the market.
I’ve never been hugely drawn to lip kits as I don’t tend to wear lip liner, but the liner in this kit is so creamy and easy to use, you could nearly use it as a lip crayon on its own! The pigment is equally as good, and the smooth texture makes for a very fine application which is great in a liner.
The lipstick itself is smooth, and although quite wet when you first apply, it dries in no time at all without any dragging or pulling, and leaves the most incredible dramatic pop of colour on the lips.
Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s not moisturising and it’s not hydrating, but it’s not drying either and that makes it a complete winner in my book. Plus, it costs €4. Four frickin’ euro people!!!
All the shades in this range are bold and dramatic and I just can’t wait to try the others out. As always, I’ll keep you posted, but for now I will love you and leave you, and go swoon over this lippy a little bit longer!
