Barry M Lip paint in 147 - review

So...this is the first ever Barry M lip paint I've tried! I'm not really a lipstick person, I have always associated it with older women but since i've started blogging i've opened up to trying different products. Here's a quick review on the Barry M lip paint in Pretty Pink! 
Oooh don't you just love getting a brand new lipstick!
I really like the matte black casing. The swatch above comes out quite dark, in real life it's a sort of pinky,coraly,redish,crabby colour. Really hard to explain! Best to swatch it for your self in store to get a proper idea.

It glides onto the lips really easily and at first has a nice creamy formula. However after a few minutes it becomes dry and the finish is matte. As a result, it can cling to the dry places on my lips. I find i have to use a balm on top of this lipstick. I really like the colour, i just wish the formula was less drying.

At £4.49 a pop, this is a decent price. However I'm quite tempted to try the MUA £1 lipsticks as they seem to be a bit creamier?

Overall, a lovely lipstick colour! I'll use this up tell it runs out but i'm not sure if i'll repurchase another one unless it's a really nice shade.

What do you think of Barry M? Hope you guys are having a good week, the weather has been rubbish here! Looking forward to revealing the 4 foundations choose by you in May for Project Foundation - read about it here if you missed it!

  1. Definitely try the MUA lipsticks - try 7 and 11 if you like the peachy/neutral kind of colours, 3 if you like bright pinks and 13 for the reds - they're dead creamy. Longeviy is then a problem though! I love Barry M but I wish they'd tell you what formulas thier lippies were, some are dead dry.

    1. thanks robyn, i will check out those MUA shades! Yeah I agree, only makes sense to say what formula they are! x

  2. I have the Barry m touch of magic lipstick and it is so cool! Definitly try out the MUA lipsticks because they are a bargain and they have such a nice creamy texture,I have a nude one and it is amazing!
