You may recall a few weeks ago I tried out one of the new matte lip kits from Penneys and fell absolutely in love with it. Not only was the shade incredible, but the finish and staying power were both pretty great too.
Where this doesn’t quite live up to expectations for me however, is with the shade. The lightest shade in the collection, this one is just a little non-descript for me, and a bit paler than I was hoping for.
The shade is a pink nude that has a mauve undertone to it and though it’s nice, it doesn’t have the amazing impact that the bright red shade did. I think that’s personal preference more than anything really as many people prefer nude tones over bright or bold.
It’s has a super matte finish though so don’t expect it to be balm-like or moisturising either!
