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.
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
