Barry M Lip Gloss Wand
The other day, I was in Superdrug and I saw this lipgloss on offer with Impulse body spray for £3. And, being as much of a BarryM fan as me I had to buy it. I was shocked that it only cost three quid but I wasn't going to complain. My first impression of this was how pretty the colour was. I got a very light/clear pink colour which is perfect for my skin/lips. It is a very simple, yet pretty design. With just the BarryM logo and some small copy about the product the tube is quite stereotypical of a lip gloss. The gloss is held in a clear plastic container with a simple black lid which you lift up with the application wand on. On the top of the container, in clear writing is the words 'Limited Edition'. I would urge anyone wanting to buy this product, to do it soon as you never know when this amazing offer will end.
The product doesn't have masses of gloss in it, but no more, no less than expected. BarryM is quite a well known cosmetic manufacturer, providing us with the wonder that is dazzle dust (which I happen to own over 15 different shades of!) Inside the wand, you get 3ml of gloss which isn't bad for the price you're paying, keeping in mind that you got an Impulse body spray in the pack too. On the back of the pack, there is an address and website for the Barry M company and other small print about the product and it's makers.
The product itself is sensational, expecting no less from Barry M. The lipgloss I have, as explained above, is pink, but is also available in a wide range of other colours and I'm sure is sold separately, unless under a different name and price. When I first opened the product, what hit me was the smell. So sweet. It smells almost like the strawberry version of Tutti Frutti, Frutina sweets. It has a very sweet, girls smell which only made me more fond of it. When applying, I found that it wasn't too sticky like most other glosses and didn't stick your lips together. It always puts me in a good mood when I wear it as the smell is so overpowering.
The easy shaped wand makes application thorough and simple. When applying, slide across the lips until satisfied then rub lips together for an even finish. I find, that when you are wearing dark eye colours this gloss stands out more. It leaves your lips shiny and bright. The colour isn't too vivid and looks as natural as your going to get with gloss. If you want a more natural look, I'd advise lip balms or beige lipsticks. The only thing that makes me feel sad about this product is the availability, it's not going to be around forever, so my advice, STOCK UP!
You can't buy this separately, but I would advise you buy it, £3 isn't bad for a lip gloss from BarryM, and you get a free Impulse body spray with it. I got the Very Pink body spray which I lovely. That may be under another review if I can find the time.
The coverage is excellent and lasts around 5-6 hours and even after that you will still have smooth lips. If you look closely at the gloss, you will notice that it has an almost glittery shimmer that looks just dazzling. You can smell it when you wear it and I don't know how I can recommend it more. This is one of my essential handbag must-haves and I feel that all women should have it on them at all times. This gloss keeps your lips soft and your purse full! You can't complain with a Barry M product, once again. The dazzling smell and the pretty pink look with keep you smiling all day long. An overall five stars from me, I seriously couldn't find any faults with this product, sorry! I hope this review has been useful to all of you who read it! Thanks :)
Summary: An amazing product, shame about the availability.
