How about a long wearing matte cherry red lip choice for under a fiver?
I have here the Penneys (or Primark) red lip liner in number 05.
Penneys do 4 shades in these P.S Love lip liners. I own them all and think they’re really great great for the price. They are pigmented, easy too apply and the won’t drag the bejesus outta your lips. Using a liner under your lipstick means you can even out your lip line, over draw slightly if you want and it will help any lip product you add on top last longer.
05 is a true red colour, so of course you could easily get away with this on it’s own and it will only set you back €1.50. #bargain 🙂
I wanted to pink it up a little, so I added ‘Cherry Picking’ by Wet n Wild into the mix.
I adore these Wet n Wild Megalast matte lippies. I swatched and reviewed a whole slew of them here, including ‘Cherry Picking’. They cost €2.49 a pop, which is really brilliant value. They come in so many colours too, so there’s plenty to choose from. Wet n Wild is really handy to get hold of now in Ireland, with Penneys and so many pharmacies stocking the brand nationwide.
‘Cherry Picking’ is a red toned pink. And again this is a gorgeous shade all by itself.
You can see it here swatched beside the lip liner, it’s on the right hand side.
When these are added together, I think they give the most beautiful pinky red shade, that would flatter so many skin shades. Cherry Picking although matte like the liner, it has a more comfortable formula. I am loving this combo and I think it will definitely be a go to for me over the Christmas period 🙂
I love a true red lip, it is so timeless and can dress up any look, but sometimes it’s nice to change things up even a little.
And the best news, both of these lip products together will cost you €3.99. None of us can argue with that can we?
Let me know what you think?
