Barry M Ultra Moisturising Lip Paints Coral Blush review

The Hype
Are you bored of the traditional lipstick or lipglosses that are available on the market? Barry M have launched a range of Ultra Moisturising lip paints that are enriched with hydrating and lip nourishing Cocoa butter.

There are 9 shades available from the brighter Coral Bush to the starker Black Cherry and the colours are designed to add vibrancy to your lips.

The Lowdown
For the purposes of this review I am sampling shade 158 (Coral Blush). On first impressions the shade appears more of a sheer red then Coral which differs from the colour on the packaging. It has a lovely fruity smell and the pink packaging is simple and very girly.

The lip paint was moisturising and didn’t feel sticky or uncomfortable. I was a little disappointed with the actual vibrancy of the colour, especially as it marketed itself as a ‘lip paint’. The colour seems quite muted, more like the sort of colour you would get in a strong lip balm. I also felt there was no coral undertone in this lip paint at all, despite the name, and it was actually more of a pinky red.

The results are okay but it’s not quite what I expected when I first bought the lip paint and I’ve had better results with other brands.

I give it 2/5

Grab it for £4.49 at Superdrug (currently a offer to buy 2 products for £7 on selected items)
