I'm awarding this lippie 1 lippie (!) but only because I'm sure that although it looks completely ridiculous on me it must suit someone out there. It is streaky and chalky too, though. Bought on a whim but now my daughter is using it on her dolls. Poor things ...

The worst lipstick I have ever used. Awful, chalky formula, drags across the lips and emphasises every single tiny lip-line. The colour itself is extremely unflattering, like corpse mouth. You could easily get the same effect using a concealer stick all over your lips. Don't waste your money, get Rimmel's 'Nude Delignt' at nearly the same price!

Its such a shame because I really liked the colour but I have to agree with everyone else. It's sooo drying and settles into every little line on my lips. I tried many times with a moisturising lip balm before hoping that I was just having an off day but it made my lips look dry and gross every time :(

Worst lipstick I've ever brought, tried to use it so many times but its too drying, just doesn't apply nicely atall! Shame as the shades are really nice and the price would be so reasonable. Definitely won't be buying anymore BarryM lipsticks.

This lipstick is a lovely colour but just SO drying :( really disappointed actually because i visited a few shops before i could get hold of it! I also found that it makes the little lines etc. in your lips really obvious! Ive tried using vaseline on my lips before i apply the lipstick + then applying a No7 lipgloss which is also called marshmallow, this makes the lips look so much better and not all dry looking :/ wouldnt buy again.

I really hate this lipstick:
1) it is very very very drying
2) does not applies on smoothly, even over my most moisturizing lipbalm
3) the color is really off-putting, it glides on very close to white and makes you really sick-looking.
4) Most suitable for stage makeup and layer on color on lips. But u have to make sure the lip color u layered on is moisturizing.
Conclusion: unless you want to look like a clown, don't buy this.

I really did not like this lipstick. It showed up as an extremely light pink colour on my lips, almost verging on white! The texture is extremely drying and makes my lips feel uncomfortable. It faded very unevenly aswell. I can't imagine this looking good on anyone, MAC Myth is much better.

HG nude. I like to look dead.

I'm used to wearing MAC and YSL lipsticks mostly, but just recently started to take notice of Barry M's! And for the price I'm really impressed! This colour is very pale....almost white looking! So if you want to mute out your lips this one is great for it!! I tried this one and the 100 shade 'Baby Pink' (my two fav Barry M lipsticks) -which is more of a muted bright pink, and I think they are both great but by comparison this one really kills all colour though makes my lips look slightly less dry than the Baby Pink one. And these lipsticks remind me quite a lot of the YSL pink rouge volupte lipsticks, so if your looking for a much cheaper version for YSL's you could do worse than giving these a try! I might not even bother to buy a YSL lipstick ever again now I've found these!
Not sure how this would look on darker skins and colourings, for reference I'm NC15-fair and blonde and it works for me!
Just realised this is my 101 product review! Lol. Freaky!

I love Barry M in general but this is a terrible colour. It is far too pale - and I say this as someone who is ghostly white. It has no pink tone it's just like a concealer stick. Love the other Barry M lipsticks but stay away from this one. Your lips should not be about 5 shades lighter than your face.

My husband went on a business trip to the UK, and I gave the poor sucker a list of items to hunt down for me. haha. This was one of them. I have had this for a few months now, and I feel it is time for me to write my review. This lipstick is one of the palest lipsticks I own, and I generallly only wear pale nudes. It is an almost white-ish pink color. I do find it drying on its own, but I dont really think anyone should wear this lipstick alone. So why the high rating? This is the perfect lipstick to adjust and tone down other lipsticks with. I have some way out there bright pink and coral lipsticks that I never wear (why do i still buy them is a whole other topic) but with this lipstick, I dont feel as out there or in your face when I pair it with a brighter lippie. It gives me a bit more color but pale and milky enough to stay within my confort zone. I also like to apply my lipsticks over a lipgloss or lip balm, so that helps a bit with the drying factor. So yea, if you have this lipstick and do not really know how to wear it - try it dabbed on the centre of your lip with another shade, and blend it around. Awesomeness.

This product will not work on most lips. Just take a look at the YouTube-Videos. It looks cheap in the worst possible way on 95% of these girls. But, if you are really, really pale, this might be the perfect one for you. It is white-pinkish and quite pigmented. As everyone has mentioned already, it is superdry. Due to that, its staying power is good, but if you want to use it more often, you should put some lipbalm on first.
Only consider to buy, if you are a real PPP.
I like it a lot.
EDIT: Still like the color, but can hardly manage the dryness.
Edit: Ok, it's really, really, really difficult to apply because of the extremly dry texture. You need to have almost flawless lips, otherwise the lipstick will bring out the roughness, flakes etc...

Indeed, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's very drying and difficult to blend: a disaster. Clings to every dry patch and settles in the cracks. Much too light, like putting concealer on your lips.
Love the nice sleek packaging though!

I've been looking for a nude lip, as I tend to go for pink and brighter colours.
I really like this colour. Although it has a hint of pink, it does seem like I've just put concealer on my lips, but when I team it with Barry M Lipgloss in Coral (11) it looks (and smells!) amazing!
Don't wear this on it's own as it is faily drying. I love Barry M!

When i first heard about this lipstick i watched LOADS of reviews on youtube and everyone was raving about it, so i went out and purchased it. I find it is too pale, matt and dries out really quickly. You need to be fair skinned to pull this product off because if you are any darker you will just look dead haha, like a zombie!
I usually salvage it by using a pink gloss on top.. or mixing it with another colour.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Blue
it's to dry and to matt for my me and it washes me out. it looks ok if mixed with a light pink lipstick tho

I LOVE this product i have like 3 back ups now! I would literally cry if they discontinued it!
A sleek black case with Barry M written in gold on the top of the lid and the name and number on a sticker on the bottom.
Consistency: I would say this is a fairly drying waxy lipstick but if applied over healthy (i.e exfoliated and not chapped lips) lips and with a lip primer it glides on beautifully i apply it straight from the bullet rather than with a lip brush as i like a full coverage colour rather than a colour wash
Colour: So true to the bullet ! The picture above doesnt really match with what it looks like!
Overall: This is like when girls apply concealer to get a totally neutralized lip. Except without the yuckiness!
Amazing i could not live without this product
If you are a fan of this two more recommendations would be Rimmel London in 700 Nude Delight and MAC Myth Lipstick :)

I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK SOOO MUCH!! I am so very picky when it comes to my lips and I am really pale and always wanted a light nude color...but I found this baby pink and it's so much prettier.
I love the fact that it is a pale color, it gives my lips a really light pale pinky color and i love it so much. I got it off ebay for about ten bucks total.
Best lipstick I have ever bought hands down...I am so in love!

at first i really wasnt mad about this but i picked it up the other day and totally love it!! its perfect for blanking out my very pigmented lips but it gives them a pinky nude colour so i dont look dead! it can be used alone or as a base for another color. another thing i love is that if you apply it by patting it on your lips rather then running it across them (which can give a chalky effect) you seriously get NO cracks on you lips. the textures not really creamy but it isnt drying or anything. im in love! :D

Instead of applying foundation on the lips, those who like the nude look should try this instead.
However, you will need ultra smooth lips beforehand.
Scrub the lips so there is NO dry skin and then moisturise with a shiny/repairing lip-balm.
It appears much whiter on the lips than how it looks before applied.
It's not as moisturising as the other Barry M lipsticks I have tried either.
I don't wear nude lips anymore now because my lips are too red to pull it off.
If you naturally have pale/thin lips I reccomend this.
