Good after noon or good morning where ever you are in the world! I’m currently back from work for today so decided to chill out and write this blog post. I loved doing my last post about penneys hits and misses. I find since I buy lots of penneys makeup and beauty products that I might as well start a series almost like on my blog about all the best and worst things I find while shopping, just to help you guys out because people can be weary about penneys products since they’re so cheap but I love them. I always find that I have more hits than misses but they’re stil fun to do.
Soif you want to see my hits and my misses… then keep on scrolling! Enjoy x
Okay first uphas to be this pressed powder for only €2.50! This has been out for ages but I only got it 2/3 weeks ago because they never had the shade ‘light’ in stock. Which I needed because us Irish people are like ghosts! Especially me. So I heard a few people rave about this so I decided why not try it for €2.50? And I love it! It’s so good for under the eyes and setting concealer it just gives a blurred like effect and makes your skin look flawless! Defiantly stocking up on this!
Next up is a new product that has hit the shelves recently. This is a liquid primer which I thought was so cool because I usually use creams even on clients. What caught my eye was the word ‘hydrates’ which I love because it means this would be perfect for dry skin which I suffer from. This was only €3 and you do get a lot of product because only a little amount sprayed out and it really does help makeup stay on. Defiantly recommend.
Next is another hydrating spray, I just use this anytime like randomly just spray myself when my skin feels dry throughout the day especially being outside with the weather changing a lot now here. It smells so good to, there’s a slight rose smell and it’s lovely for freshening up. As you can see only €2.50 as well! It leaves a really nice glow to your face too.
Next up is this gorgeous deep red super matte liquid lipstick. I almost 100% sure this was €2.50. Even though it says super matte it doesn’t feel very drying it just feels comfortable on the lips and looks stunning. So if you’re looking for a nice red but don’t want to spend a fortune, get this!
I love this! This truely is kiss proof (trust me). It’s a gorgeous dark purple/grey/brown colour I can’t describe it exactly but it’s fab on! This is in the shade ‘shadow’ and was only €4! It’s not drying, like the other one it feels so comfortable and smells like chocolate!
I wasn’t sure about this when I picked it up but I used it for the first time last week and it’s so good. It really helps to brighten up the under eye area and a little goes a long way. This is also great for putting on the lid of your eye before any eyeshadow just to help the shadows blend. Can’t go wrong for €2.50!
Don’t think I ever reviewed or talked about perfume before.. oh well first for everything! This little thing was only €2.50 and it’s so cute! Perfect for having it in your bag or for traveling! Smells so fresh too and they have lots to chose from.
As much as I love this it has to be a miss! This is from the liquid lip kits they are doing and for me it’s a great formula and gorgeous colour but as it dries down it goes orange? I really didn’t like it. It’s nice on for 10 minutes but it just goes more orange as it dries which I was so disappointed about! This came with a lip liner and that’s great! I think they lip kits are €4.
Next up sadly has to be this candy palette. I did a review on this and at the start I really liked it so I tried it again a few days ago and I just thought they colours faded really quick? Now I love the pink highlighter and the champagne eyeshadow but I hated the liquid lipstick! The colour didn’t suit me at all and it didn’t feel nice on my lips, definitely wasn’t the same formula as there other ones! And for €8 I wouldn’t buy it again just for a small highlighter and a smal eyeshadow.
Same thing with this palette as the last one, loved it at the started but I think the pigment faded away or something. I also found when you’re using it you’ve to layer the shadow about 10 times until it even starts showing on the lid. I’d use a few shadows now and again such as the white and blue but for €8 it’s not worth using 2 shades.
Lastly this liquid lipstick. Same formula as the red, and from looking at the package it’s a stunning nude pink but on the lips it’s like a bright peachy colour? Didn’t suit me at all and was really disappointed because I love the colour!
So that’s it from me let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and how they worked for you!
Until next time…
