Kmart brand lipstick – say whaaaaat?

You heard me – Kmart has its own brand of lip products! If you’ve been to Kmart in NZ or Australia since they did their cosmetics refurbish earlier this year you will have seen a section call ‘Face Eyes Lips Nails’ – not to be confused with the brand ELF (Eyes Lips Face). I’d walked past it before, but never bought anything as I figured it would be poor quality. However, this past weekend I was at my local Kmart with Elese, and an orange lipstick caught my eye, and as it only cost $6 I thought why not give it a whirl.

The tube is nice and solid, the cap didn’t come off in my handbag.

Here’s my FOTD (Face Of The Day) for afternoon tea with a friend on the weekend. I’m wearing MAC Pro Longwear concealer, Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream, Models Prefer mineral foundation, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Silk Naturals loose eyeshadow which I’m planning on posting about soon, Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in Espresso Ink, Smashbox Mascara and Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in my brows. Phew that sounds like a lot of products but it’s just for a fairly casual outing!

Pretty basic make up look – I wanted to focus on the lips

And a close up of my lips, to show the lipstick better. My lips are a bit dry here, from wiping off a previous choice that I regretted – don’t blame this lipstick for it!

I wore the lipstick out for a coffee date, and it faded a bit after my coffee and muffin, but after 4 hours it still looked decent which is a great in my books. If you have a nearby Kmart, and want a nice matte lipstick at a low cost – I recommend getting these. I’m certainly going to be going back and purchasing a few more of their offerings. There aren’t any testers but for $6 I’m willing to run the risk.

Have you tried anything from Kmart’s Face, Eyes, Lips, Nails range? Is there anything you suggest that I try or that I should steer clear of? Let me know in the comments section.
