Hi guys! So I mentioned in this post that I purchased two Barry M lipsticks, one which I was yet to wear.
The lipstick was the Barry M Matte Me Up lipstick in Embellish – which you can get here for £4.99 from Superdrug. I actually got mine from Boots but it looks like it has disappeared from their website.
I chose this lipstick as I have an unhealthy obsession with dark red/purple lipsticks – even though I barely ware any lip colours except for nude (may be as all I do is work and sleep) but I digress…
I do enjoy this lipstick. When it is first applied it is not at all drying – although it does stick to any cracks you may already have on your lips (I was having a bit of a mare due to that cheap primark lipstick which lead to a whole week of no lipstick only chapstick!!!! tho i s2g i have lips that look like a cat anus anyway).
I applied the lipstick at 10.30am and the second picture was taken at 5.30pm after I had devoured a bowl of wheetos, a breakfast wrap, a sausage roll and a 99 flake ice-cream (sorry people who follow my diet, it didnt happen today!). so all in all, after 7 hours ware and a bit of a pig out, the fact that there was any lipstick left at all was good by my standards.
This lipstick was quite lightweight, which was good, but it meant I was constantly expecting it to have slid off my mouth and onto my chin (don’t know if anybody else gets the lipstick-imprint-on-the-chin thing?) but IT DIDNT! Not once. After my curry for dinner I did manage to smear it half across my face, but I’m sure that was just down to my clumsy home eating habits, lol.
I think that for £4.99 this is a nice lipstick, and I would definitely be interested in seeing how any nude lipsticks by Barry M would square up. I feel like Barry M is not particularly a well known brand re lipsticks, so it’s interesting to find one which I like which is also not breaking the bank.
What are your thoughts – and favourite more unknown liquid lips?
Thanks for reading,
