Barry M Lip Paint 121: The Red Lip


barry m red barry m lipstick bright red lipstick lip paint
Yeah you've seen this photo before, but I look hideous right now and cba to put makeup on


Why oh why have I never turned to ol' Bazza before for lip products? I'd read a few reviews about the lip paints and most were along the lines of "pretty colours but overly drying" so I'm guessing this is the reason I hadn't so much as sniffed at them during my many a visit to the Barry M counter for nail polish.
Anyway, lesson learnt. Try things myself. I have awful dry lips and it doesn't help that one of my bad habits is biting them, however despite what a lorra people have said this formula is actually quite creamy on me and didn't turn chalky at all. Saying that I didn't have it on for that long, probs around the hour and a half mark but there was no messyness during this time and the pigmentation is amazing.
The price isn't too shabby either, it's £4.49 on the Barry M website but they're pretty much always included in a 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug or Boots. I liked this one so much I went and ordered two more from asos with my yourvine code. Baz - ya done good.

  2. I have dry lips too, reallly annoying as lippy never looks that good on me! I have a red barry m lippy which is quite an old one and mine is quite drying (no idea what shade it is though haha, clueless!) but I bought a new one from 17 the otherday, a Supreme Shine one and it's actually quite matte looking but moisturising for me! Wonder if Bazza has changed his formula?! I hope so.

  12. I think the problem with Barry M lippies is that they all look the same but the formula varies from shade to shade - you've obviously got lucky with this one and i have one i got lucky with too but i have another one which is the driest chalkiest thing alive! I think as long as you test them properly in the shop you can tell what the finish will be but it's always a bit hit or miss :(
