I think a good few of you are already obsessed with this lipliner but if you haven't heard about it, stop everything. We're all on the nude bandwagon right now, and I can say without hesitation that this is my absolute favourite nude lipliner of all time.
I prefer this to all of the 'legendary' colours; Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, MAC Soar, etc etc. This Penneys liner (it has no name, I would ideally like to call it Excellence or something to that effect) is just the dream. The shade is the perfect 'deep' nude for me and strikes the perfect balance between pink, nude and mauve tones (see it on my gob down at the end of this post).The quality is incredible - it doesn't dry out my lips, goes on like velvet and sticks around for absolutely ages on my lips. It's one of the longest lasting pencils I've tried - definitely up there with MAC and Charlotte Tilbury.
Another reason to love this? It goes with absolutely everything. I've paired it with almost all of my nudes lipsticks at this stage and it works well with them all - and also looks incredible paired with NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu. I think the lipsticks I love on top of this the most would be Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect, MAC Whirl (of course I bought it), and Maybelline's Velvet Beige, which is my favourite affordable nude lipstick by a long shot.
I'd be enamoured with this whether I'd spent €2 or €20 on it, but I just love that it was €1.50 - I mean, I pay more than that on to the bus. It's a serious gem - I bought my first one back in February and it got a lot of interest over on our Facebook page, and it's still in stock in both of my local Penneys stores. I've bought about six as I'm so terrified of it disappearing from stores!
Used a €1.50 lipliner from Penneys this morning and it's actually deadly. The colour is a bit like MAC Spice and it's lasting so well

After writing this, I know that I have plenty more to say on the subject of my favourite neutral lip shades and combinations, so please do let me know if that's something you'd like to see a post on? In the meantime, I do the odd beauty ramble on Snapchat @deirdro if you're there!
