Throughout my challenge so far, I’ve only worn one Barry M lip product, one of their Matte Me Up lip kits in a gorgeous rose berry shade, Runway. My first impressions of both the liner and matte lipstick were very good, and so I decided to try out another of their liquid matte paints today.
Today’s shade is the same product as what was in the lip kit, only this time I bought it on its own as I’m not a huge user of lip liners. I probably should use them more, but I never really got into the habit even though I’m obsessed with all things lipstick!
This lippy is a liquid matte as I mentioned above, and it has a very wet formula. At first I thought it would be too wet to give a full, opaque coverage but that wasn’t the case at all.
It blends easily, with no dragging or pulling on the colour, and once it dries in, it leaves a very smooth matte finish with incredible staying power.
Because it’s so wet, there is no hydration or moisturising element to it, so if your lips are in any way dry, you might need to prime them before wearing this, or apply some balm later in the day. Having said that, I suffer from very dry lips and didn’t find it too drying at all.
Both the pigment and shade are just gorgeous, and the colour pay off is excellent too. A little will really gone a long way with this, so that’s always a plus for me.
If you’re a liquid lip fan and in the market for a new budget buy, then this could definitely be worth checking out. It’s not my favourite liquid matte, but I did enjoy wearing it.
