Throughout my challenge I’ve tried out a few different shade from the Penneys lustre range and I’ve liked pretty much all of them. Today’s shade, Watermelon, is no different and may be one of my favourite of them all given it’s lovely coral undertone.
These lipsticks have a satin sheer finish and though they aren’t particularly hydrating, they have enough creaminess to be moisturising and leave the lips feeling lovely and soft.
One thing I’ve always liked about this collection is the great pigment; from deep reds like Salsa, to the very nude Barely There, the pigment is very consistent with good colour pay off.
As finishes go, it’s one of my favourite from Penneys and the staying power isn’t bad. It doesn’t have the same lasting ability as their mattes, but holds its own pretty well nonetheless.
I can never get over how much I like Penneys lipsticks, especially given the price of this one was just €1.50! I mean, you really can’t get better than that.
It’s not as creamy or luxurious as some of my high-end favourites, but as budget lippies go, it’s definitely one of the better options.
