Barry M matte me up liquid lip paints

Barry M have been killing it lately with the new releases and what with their new lip kits coming out I stumbled across these little beauties. These are essentially matte liquid lipsticks, the same as the ones in the lip kits but they come on they own without the liner. Superdrug had an amazing offer on too where you could get all five of the colours in the range, normally priced at £4.99 each, for £15. So obviously with that great bargain I couldn’t miss out and picked them all up.

In the collection there are two nudey shades, a bright pink, a cherry red and a vampy purple, all of which apply evenly on the lips and don't look patchy, even the darker shades. The formulation like I said in my lip kit review feels very watery, so much so that when you apply it you'd think it'd apply very thin, however this isn't the case and just ensures it goes on without looking cakey.

They also don't leave your lips feeling sticky and dry to a complete matte finish without feeling drying on the lips. My only small complaint would be the longevity of them, they do last reasonably well but after a significant amount of eating and drinking they do start to wear off in the middle. However if you touch your lips up in any places where it's come off it doesn't leave them looking uneven and they'll be looking good as new again so that's a bonus!
The shades are On the scene which is the perfect pink nude ever, minimalist which is a more peachy nude, Pop up a hot pink, Paparazzi a cherry red, and Embellish a vampy purple shade. On the scene is definitely my favourite shade to wear and quite possibly my perfect nude shade ever!! I've been wearing it with the Colourpop metallic gloss in My jam over the top of it and it's been my favourite combo!

I'll be honest and say that the two shades I'm going to be wearing non stop are the two nude ones and I doubt I'll reach for the other shades much. However it's nice to know I have them if I fancy a bolder lip as I know the formulation is one I trust.

As you can see from the swatches every single shade is insanely pigmented and they're such a pretty selection of colours!

I know I'm going to try and get my hands on the other two lip kits so I can have all the shades and if you want to read the post I did on the lip kit Pose which I managed to get my hands on then I'll link it here.

I'd really recommend you give these lipsticks a go especially if Superdrug still have the offer on for all 5 at £15 and as always, thanks for reading.

  1. Wow these look amazing, I especially like the two pink shades as I prefer subtle colours but the others are still nice.

  5. Heyy there !
    OMG £15 for all of these is such a bargain ! I myself have gotten the Pop Up one the last time I went to London (no Barry M over here in France! :'( ) and I wasn't sure at first so I just swatched it and went on with my shopping day but then after a few hours, I saw it was still untouched and awesome so I had to go back and get it and now... I'm thrilled because it's such a color I love to wear when there's sun outside !

    On the Scene does look pretty though, like Embellish - I might have to get them the next time I come to London... ;)

    Thanks for your review, have the nicest day !
