I'm a massive fan of the Barry M make-up range, always have been. My Mother was quite gothic during her younger days and always said that Barry M were, at one time, the only make-up range to cater for such styles. She still insists it is the best make-up range available today and so continues to buy only Barry M products. Subsequently, when I got to that age where I wanted to to experiment with make-up, I was left to rummage through her make-up back and work with whatever I could find, Barry M products.
I started to buy my own make-up and stuck to what I knew. I would always go straight to the Barry M range every time I entered Boots or Superdrug etc. Now days I use a much more diverse range of make-up brands but when it comes to lipsticks and eyeshadows, Barry M is still the majority within my make-up collection.
In general Barry M products do not only come in a wide range of colours and styles but are also of a high quality. What I love most about Barry M is their products are not tested on animals, something which is very difficult to find without spending an arm and a leg.
I found this particular lipstick in my local Superdrug store around a year ago. I was instantly shocked at the colour, Barry M are known for their more 'out there' colours but I'd never found green lipstick before. Out of curiosity, I rubbed the tester product along my hand to see what colour it was on, I never expected it to turn pink! I immediately handed over the £4.49 sale price to the cashier and brought the lipstick without really considering if I would ever wear it. I'm not really a pink person. I simply wanted to show everyone my amazing colour changing lipstick!
I got home and applied the lipstick, it was a little to vibrant for me. Although a really nice shade, just something I would typically wear. I did, however, find that if I rubbed my finger across the tip of the lipstick and then applied the lipstick via my finger it gave a great colour without it being so in your face. I wore it regularly like this and always got plenty of compliments! Applying a little bit of lipstick over the top made it look even better.
I found this product to look great like this for day to day wear or to add finishing touches to an outfit I was about to hit the town in. I really loved it and ended up going out and replacing it straight after I had used up the last of the lipstick.
Not only do you get style with this lipstick but you also get comfort and reliability. The lipstick is waterproof and claims to last up to 8 hours. I think 8 hours may be a bit of an exaggeration but it does last a long time! I very rarely needed to re-apply this lipstick when I wore it. It didn't fade when I had a drink or any of the usual every day tasks that normally rub off lipstick. To top it off it wasn't sticky when applied and it didn't feel heavy or uncomfortable on my lips either, something I always have trouble finding with lipsticks.
All in all, I adore this product. Another amazing, high quality cosmetic item from Barry M. This lipstick has become a make-up essential for me and I think it would for a lot of other people who decided to try it as well. Something I strongly recommend you do!
Summary: A great lipstick which I love.
