Simply Lippy Challenge Day 59 | PS… High Colour Lip Crayon in Shade Red

First things first, happy Pancake Tuesday everyone! I’ve just finished eating some very bold, but very delish pancakes and I’m not one bit sorry!

Anyway, today’s lippy choice is another of Penneys’ PS… lip crayons, which if you read my Day 38 post, you will know I was pretty impressed by.

These lip crayons have great pigment – today’s bright orange shade really proves that. Although I do have one issue with it, and that is: this shade claims to be red, so much so it is simply called, Red. But to me, it is undoubtedly orange. And I don’t mean red with an orange undertone, but a bright orange-orange!

Even still, I do like these lip crayons in general. The formula is creamy and blendable, and although they aren’t the best long last lippies that I’ve tried, the lasting power isn’t too bad considering they are a budget buy and very affordable.

As you all know by now, I do really love a bright lip colour, especially orange shades, so I think I’m sure I’ll use this again. However, it is very similar, almost identical in fact, to the Penneys orange matte shade Fizz that I wore on Day 53 of the challenge; the only different being this has a cream gloss finish as opposed to matte.

So, if had to choose between the two, I think I’d have to choose the matte lipstick over this, simply because the formula is so good on the matte and I really like the finish. But, as orange lipsticks go, it’s not a bad choice and I enjoyed wearing it today.

Simply Lippy Challenge Day 38 | PS… High Colour Lip Crayon in Shade Motivation

Today’s lipstick is a gorgeous, vibrant bright pink shade from Penneys’ PS… collection, and one that I have just been loving all day long! 

I know I’ve said it before but honestly, I really can’t get over how good the PS… lipsticks are; they have continued to surprise me the whole way through this challenge and today’s lippy is no different.

The shade is a bright fuchsia pink called Motivation, and has gorgeous pigment as well as great colour payoff. It has a very creamy formula that gives a semi-matte finish to the lips, and the lasting power is fairly good too.

While I wouldn’t call it long lasting as you will have to reapply this during the day, it’s pretty good and doesn’t flake or go patchy on the lips after eating or drinking for example, which is always a bonus.

Because of the dark mornings and my early starts, it’s hard to get photos of my lipstick shades as they actually look on my lips, so today I used the flash to give you a better idea. I really need to invest in a ring light but this will have to do for now!

What do you think of this shade? And have you tried any of the PS… lipsticks yet? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
