Well, I'm quite mixed with this actually, I was in my local drugstore looking for a quite deep purple lipstick to try out and came across no#156 vicious violet. The colour was gorgeous and exactly what it was looking for, and it was also matted, which I love in a lipstick. Anyways i put it on, it was quite dry but I like it that way, however the colour was quite a bright shade of pinky purple, it was nice, but wasn't the colour I was expecting:( overall I do like the product, it's a lovely lipstick and very well priced and stays on all day. It might have just been this colour in particular which didn't come out as I thought it would.
I bought one of these lip paints on ASOS as it was on special for NZ$5 - and who can pass up that? I bought shade 147 Peachy Pink. It is exactly that. A light peachy pink! I LOVE the colour, it looks so gorgeous on, even though it's quite light, it makes me look like I have more of a tan than I actually do, but in a good way! Formula is what I'd expect from a light colour. It isn't drying but it isn't super moisturising either. Stays on for a reasonable amount of time. And for the price, it's a great buy and I would definitely try more colours from the range.
I chose Sunset as well, and I have to disagree. On my skin tone it's definitely a coral and not an orange. In the same way MAC Vegas Volt has a little pink to it and Morange does not. This lipstick is not dry on my lips, and it feels nice. It doesn't slip outside of your lip line and I don't feel the need for a liner.
I kept meaning to post a review on the orange lip paint 151 aka Sunset. On me it is a slightly vibrant light to mid orange without any red or pink tones. Definitely not coral. It is not for the faint hearted and it's only because I have a tan (currently around NC30 to NC35) that I can at long last carry it off. It is creamy, opaque and long lasting. It is not drying at all and goes on smoothly. Would look gorgeous on darker skin tones. Don't be scared by how it looks (neon!) - try it on!
I bought one of these is shocking pink and i absolutely love it. It's super dramatic and bright but also I can apply it lightly over lip balm for a more sheer subtle pink. It stains the lips so it lasts well and I think the price is really good!
Currently using Barry M Shocking Pink and Barry M Vibrant Pink. Both are bold, in-yo-face shades of Nicki Minaj-ish pinks. Luv the fierce colors. The only drawback is, the heavy pigments leave an extremely difficult to remove reddish stain on the lips once u wipe it off at the end of the night. No matter how much I rubbed my lips with tissue and makeup remover, the reddish stain was still visible on my lips.
I absolutley love the Barry M lip paints! I started being obsessed with them when i was in my pre teens but as soon as i got my first wad of money i went to buy one! My favourite shades are 101 Marshmellow because it is super pale (like myself) and i love the 1960's 'mod' look. It is quite drying because of it lack of pigment but some lip balm or vaseline underneath does the trick :) it's also good for mixing other lip shades to make them lighter. My other favourite is 100 Bubblegum pink, this was the first one i bought. It does have some blue tones running through it so would'nt be wise for maybe olive skin tones, again it's abit drying and i have noticed it wears off quickly and leaves a brighter pink stain behind. Overall they are one of my favourite drugstore lipsticks. Ranging from mattes to sheens they are pretty good! Retail at £4.49
I really like these, I only have two, one which the number has rubbed off so I wouldn't be able to say (lol) but the other one is in the shade 100. They are both pink shades, with one having a slight magenta hue and its quite bright and vibrant and 100 is a baby/pale pink and has quickly become one of my very favourite lipsticks. They are very matte, so if you prefer a 'glossier' lipstick then these probably aren't for you. My only negative thing about them is that they are very drying, which means you do need a bit of vaseline or something similar to put on first, which I find dilutes the colour a little bit which is annoying. However overall I think they are really nice, affordable, reliable lipsticks with a good colour selection and nice packaging.
small cheap and gorgeous colours. doesnt last all day, but wouldnt expect that for something so cheap. my everyday lippy in a small compact case perfect for the bag!
i have this in #54 PEACH. its a beautiful bright orange colour with a hint of pink. the colour suits me very well, but honestly i can't wear this lipstick, simply because the formulation is horrible. It settles into lines, bleeds, and its super-patchy.. such a shame that a beautiful colour like this wont be worn :(
