Review // Barry M Lip Paint in 147 Peachy Pink

I bought the Barry M Lip Paint in 147 Peachy Pink on a whim whilst browsing Asos a few days before Christmas where it was on sale for £2.50 rather than £4.49, the usual price. It arrived on Christmas Eve so I was very happy. In the bullet it looks a very peachy pink with a hint of a coral.

On the Barry M website, their Lip Paints are described as:
"All lip paints have a soft, beautiful smooth texture that is packed full of natural moistures to help them glide on and stay comfortable to wear for hours."
Does this live up to it's claim? Er, no.

I shall start with a positive; all I needed was one sweep of this lipstick to get a full opaque colour, although my lips were very chapped when I first tried this and it really did not do my lips any favours. This lipstick is so drying that it was actually really rather uncomfortable to wear. I don't wear lip gloss but I think with this Lip Paint it is really necessary, just to stop it being so drying on the lips.

I then tried this lipstick with lip balm underneath and it was a little more comfortable to wear but still really drying. I think Barry M definitely need to change their formula for this lipstick as I'm not a fan at all.

  1. I've had exactly the same experience with Barry M Lip Paints! The only way I resolved the dryness (to some extent) was to switch between applying vaseline and then the lip paint every half hour... not very convenient. It's a shame becuase the colours are so brilliant! xx
