New Barry M Lip Kits & Lip Paints | Review

12 May 2017

This is not so much a recent release anymore but at the end of January 2017, Barry M released a small range of Lip Kits that everyone went crazy for. Due to spending so much money on my upcoming holiday, I was severely poor the first few months of the new year. However, after slightly recovering, I decided to pick up one of their gorgeous lip kits as well as one of 5 of their lip paints. Barry M have generally been a great brand, for me, that I've always highly spoken off, as I'm a super fan of their inexpensive nail polishes. I thought it was time to give it a go after the hype died down, I had a bit of money to spend and see if their makeup is anything to rave about too...

Matte Me Up Lip Kit - POSE

Let's talk about my favourite purchase first. Out of the 3 lip kits, I opted for the middle shade - POSE - a nude shade with soft pink undertones. For those of you that watched my '3rd Weekly Vlog' on my Youtube channel, you would have seen my first impressions on this. When I first applied the product, I literally FREAKED out. The shade was super nude pink, very pigmented, but looked so light against my pale skin. Luckily, my patience enabled me to wait for the product to dry to its desired matte finish and the colour cooled to a deeper tone, that I had been seeing everyone swatch. I was so scared that I'd made a poor shade decision but little did I know how much I would love it. The first day I tried this beauty was whilst I was doing a Saturday shift at work - baring in mind my shifts are roughly 12 hours long, I was swiftly putting this to test to say the least! Throughout the entire twelve hours, the lipstick didn't budge ONE bit and I seriously mean this. It honestly compares to the longevity of my Huda Beauty matte liquid lipstick, if not better! The pigmentation held all day long, there was no crusty bit lingering on my lips, the product was in no way comfortable/drying throughout and it barely budged after eating 3 meals and drinking. If that doesn't impress you, I don't know what does?! This Barry M Lip Kit is a product I've been longing for my entire existence, I swear - I've never used a liquid lipstick that holds on my lips for longer than 3 hours, let alone an entire day! Equipped with the liquid lipstick is a corresponding lip liner that applies smoothly the outskirts of your lips. I also find this creates a gorgeous, deeper colour if you apply this completely underneath the liquid lipstick. Both products are super creamy, despite their mattifying finish - this is just a complete godsend for my dry complexion. If you haven't tried one these yet, go to Boots or Superdrug NOW. I'm going to be purchasing the rest of the collection for sure. The only downfall is that there are 3 shades to pick so I'm praying that a greater colour range is underway in the Barry M studios!

Matte Me Up Lip Paint - EMBELLISH

Alongside the liquid lipstick and liner kits, they brought out 5 lip paints. As I opted for a nude/pink with the lip kits, I bought one of the darker matte lip paint shades. Embellish is a deep purple with blue undertones. The pigmentation is intense and applies smoothly onto the lips, alike the lip kit products. As for longevity, the colour stays as bold as when first applied throughout the day. When I wore this for an evening event, it didn't budge at all - just a small amount of product was wiped off from using a napkin etc but that's understandable. I cannot wait to use this in many evening tutorials over on my Youtube channel as well as sharing some makeup looks on here throughout the next few months. I'm super impressed Barry M - just bring me out some more shades so I can go crazy on them!
