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 :(
I bought Barry M Lip paint in 151/Sunburst, I actually thought I had bought 121/Pillarbox Red, which I had before and loved but I lost it when I moved house. First I was disappointed as obviously it wasn't what I was expecting but I found it was a much better shade for my colouring as it's more of a matte coral-red. If you don't want such a striking colour you can dab it on over lip balm, or for a more intense look you can put it straight on, either way it looks great. It is pretty cheap though and doesn't taste/smell of anything other than cheap lipstick so definitely isn't a luxury in any sense, but I tend to buy Barry M products for the colour which it is always good for. It lasts quite well and as long as you put lip balm on first it reapplies well, I will definitely be buying it again!
I only own the 'pillar box red' shade of this lipstick, which I brought because I thought a vibrant lip colour would make me finally abandon my tendency to go bare lipped. Despite the comments people are making regarding drying, I find that buffing lips lightly before applying lipstick makes a big difference to how long lipstick lasts (you can make a lovely sugar scrub for lips with fine sugar and a little bit of peppermint oil).
I was at first a little disappointed with how it seemed to lack the impact I was after. There was very little shine and softness or depth of pigment when it was actually on my lips. The formula had an old fashioned texture, quite hard and not at all creamy or glossy. I then read that red lipstick is best applied with a finger tip and blended for impact. After using a nude lip crayon, I tried the finger technique (downside of course is that you need to wash your hands immediately). A coat of vaseline on top created that rich, flattering and dramatic pout I had envisaged. Those multi taskers amongst you will also appreciate the cream blush potential of this product.
The lip paints usually retail for under £5.00. I like the simple matte black packaging for this product, as the actual lipstick speaks for itself. Definitely one for when you are wanting to experiment with new shades.
This is a review for #62 Shocking Pink. Ultra bright almost neon hot pink in a matte formula. Applies very opaque so what it looks like in the tube is true to how it applies which I love! I wore this today and walked into a Mac store to pickup something. The first thing the sales person said to me was "wow amazing lipstick, what colour is that? It's one of ours right?"
The quality of this lipstick is absolutely on par with some of Mac's matte shades.
The only disappointing thing- as others have mentioned - it is VERY drying. After two hours wear I walked out of a meeting and realised it has balled up around the centre line of my lips and made a thick line of buildup. A bit embarassing actually!!
So for that reason I might not repurchase if I ever ran out. For such a bright beautiful shade though, it is a worthy purchase if you don't mind some midday maintanence!!
i have quite a few of lip paints, i have pink ribbon, sunset, shocking pink, coral, mulberry and my all time fave, the green touch of magic!
The colors are amazing and last for almost over 5 hours! The green is amazing and on me, is a dark magenta pink
My rating is for the only shade I've tried: Peach. I was expecting a shade that resembled "peach", but it looks fluro orange on my lips and the texture is so drying, no matter how soft my lips are before I apply the lipstick. Waste of money, really.
