All over Instagram I kept seeing the ‘new’ Barry M Lip Paints, I looked in every Boots/Superdrug I could think of and couldn’t find them. Finally I managed to find a few different shades and decided to go for Berrylicious. We both love a nice dark berry tone for Autumn/Winter so I knew this would get plenty of wear!
One of the main reasons I love a Barry M Lip Paint is because of the price, this item was priced at just £4.49 (bargain!!!). If you aren’t a fan of Barry M then you probably should be, you’ll be saving quite a few pennies! I also love the fact that Barry M are cruelty free. Both Rachel and myself have been considering going cruelty free for a while and we’re in the middle of taking the plunge. Therefore, the majority of our make up collection consists of Barry M products.
There are a total of 6 Lip Paints in this new collection all of which are autumnal shades (there is a coral tone too!). The packaging is something that really caught my eye, I love the metallic/shiny look. I feel that the packaging makes the product look much more expensive than it actually, is whilst still being compact. I also love the edgy look it gives!
The shade of the lipstick is a little darker than it appears in the photo. The lighting has been awful lately so that explains why! I love how it looks on, it doesn’t make me look too ghostly! One thing I was a little disappointed with is that I found it tricky to apply. I’m not sure if it’s just me but I felt that the colour bled a little, meaning I ended up with lipstick all around my lips. This also meant that it was more difficult to get an even coverage. That being said, I suck so bad at make up so maybe after a few more attempts of applying, I’ll no longer have these issues!
I’m yet to do a wear test as I haven’t been able to wear this out yet (I’ve been so busy at uni and work) ,but once I have I shall update this post with details! Overall for the small price of £4.49 I do think this is a great lip paint! Please do not be put off by me saying it bled a little as I genuinely think it’s down to me. I can’t wait to wear it out, it’s definitely one of my favourite shades!
