Barry M Lip Paints*

Barry M Lip Paints review and swatches
Barry M Lip Paints

I'm again showing my love for Barry M's lipsticks, this time their more sheer version rather than the Barry M Ultra Moisturising Lip Paints I reviewed the other month. Barry M is a brand I don't see much of in the beauty world so it's nice to be able to try something first hand. These lipsticks also come in a black bullet similar to the Nars packaging's texture, though it's quite plain packaging it still looks fab.

Pillar Box Red - Pink Suede - Shocking Pink

Pillar Box Red
Reds are my favourite colour so it was inevitable I was going to be drawn to the red shade. Though it isn't as pigmented as half of my other reds, it is easy to apply for a day at work. It's quite a light shade as far as finishes go, it lasts a few hours but needs regular top ups and doesn't leave any stain. It reminds me of a sheen version of Ruby Woo (though I do love my Ruby Woo more).

Pink Suede
Personally I don't think it's pink at all? More a brown toned shade, but hey! This was the closest I've ever got to a 'Kylie Jenner' shade, and I love it. I actually carry this one in my handbag to apply in the afternoons when I need a bit of a perk up. This matches perfectly with Rimmels Tiramisu liner and gives it a more of a finished look too. With them having a sheen finish they don't have a solid outline when applied, which is something I like. This is my favourite of the 3 and the one I use the most.

Shocking Pink
This one scares me a little, it is so so bright. I'm not even sure I will ever be brave enough to wear it outdoors. It reminds me of Mac's Candy Yum Yum, which is a colour I've always been too scared to buy too (ha). It's beautifully pigmented and really opaque, so if you like pink lipsticks it is pretty amazing quality. I'm a little sad I can't pull off pink.. maybe one day.

Have you tried any of these before?

  1. You get my praise because you always write about Barry M products which I don't know anything about, so go you! As you guessed it, no I haven't tried these. I do like the packaging though - it looks high end like and sleek too. The pink is so bright and pigmented, I think it'd wash me out so much! The red looks wearable for day to day use xx

  2. Such a great post! I love Barry M, although I do know what you mean when you say it doesn't really get noticed a lot. Admittedly, I do normally just stick to their Nail Varnish's but this has made me want to try their lipsticks now! Pink suede reminds me so much of MAC's velvet teddy! I've wanted a more subtle red for ages so this should be a good shout :)

    P.s. You could totally rock the pink!
