barry m lip paint in 52

Barry M lip paint in 52 shocking pink : superdrug (£4.49)

After my woes with the Look Beauty Double Hit Lip in Pink Punch I needed a nice bright pink in my lipstick collection! Bought this Barry M lip paint in Topshop a few days ago. I saw it at another Barry M counter in Superdrug but the counter was so filthy I just couldn't bring myself to buy it. 52 is a bright blue toned neon pink. A touch drying like all the matte Barry M lip paints, which can look cakey on dry lips. I think its because of the high colour pigmentation to make it super bright leads the formula to be quite thick and stiff. I like matte lipsticks personally so this is a good'un for me. I wouldn't recommend it if you had dry lips though as it really can look cakey! Its best worn after the lips have been exfoliated and a lip balm applied under it. Its not really something I'd recommend to most people but the colour and price are spot on! It wears well but does stain the lips a little so be careful!

  1. I'm a firm Barry M believer so I'm excited you did a review. I miss this brand so much in France. Their lipsticks are ace and really fill the gap until I can afford to buy MAC lipsticks. Great review!

  5. I've never tried a Barry M lip paint, but i'm skeptical because i hate the nail varnish, while everyone else seems to love it?

  13. Gorgeous colour! I have a Rimmel one very similar which I bought after I had the Barry M one as it doesn't dry out my lips as much & it feels a bit creamier.

    xoxo.

  19. I actually think it is maybe a little too strong for me. I have the pillar box red lip paint and find that it actually looks the best when it's teamed with subtle eye make up.
    Love reading your blog (you actually got me in to blog reading, so thanks!)
