Simply Lippy Challenge Day 210 | Penneys PS Matte Lip Kit in Shade Obsessed

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.


So, naturally when trying out my second shade in the collection today, I was excited to see if it lived up to the very high expectations I now have of these lippies. And it did, well kinda.


The formula is the same great formula that I experienced when trying out the first shade; it is smooth and though quite wet when you first apply, it dries in very quickly with great colour pay off.


The liner is creamy and smooth as I expected, and the light formula makes it very easy to apply and blend before adding the liquid lipstick element to it.


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.


The good thing about it is that it works with any makeup look, simple or dramatic, and for that reason is a good all rounder choice.

It’s has a super matte finish though so don’t expect it to be balm-like or moisturising either!
