After all the bronze tones I’ve worn over the past few days, I’ve been craving a bright, non-metallic lip, and today’s choice from Penneys was exactly that.
I’m not going to get into how impressed I’ve been with Penneys’ lipsticks this year; my regular readers will already know that I’m a big fan. However, I think today’s lipstick choice might just be one of my favourite shades of the year.
I love a coral lip, and the salmon coral tone of this lipstick is to die for. This is the kind of shade I would adore during the summer, especially if away on holidays. I just love a lippy that makes me feel summery!
The pigment as you can see, is bold and rich; it gives a full coverage finish to the lips and you get an amazing colour pay off from the second you apply it.
The formula is wet as most liquid mattes initially are, but it dries in quickly to leave a very dry, super matte finish that doesn’t budge off the lips. Believe me, the staying power with this is brilliant!
On the downside, because of the very good staying power, my lips did feel a bit dry towards the later part of the day, so I would recommend having a lip balm handy in case you suffer from dry lips like me.
Having said that, I liked the shade so much that the dryness won’t stop me wearing it again! I really loved it and can’t wait for Spring to arrive so I can wear it again.
