Some New Barry M - Reviews and swatches.

Over on Barry M's Facebook on Tuesday there was a special friends code for 30% off any order - ohh how could I say no!?

If it hasn't been VERY apparent (what with all my posts on the subject) I LOVE lipstick! So it would be wrong for me not to pick one up. I've never used Barry M lipstick before (or Lip Paint as they call it) so as a huge nail polish fan of theirs I decided to try:

The colour I picked up was the first I saw, a new colour named 'Pink Ribbon' , the others I kept seeing were nuts things like Robot Blue and that isn't for me!
£4.25 without discount.

Swatch: first one is two layers, second with only one layer.

Here is it on! It's just a plain simple pink which is nice for those days when I'm not into wearing alot of make-up.
It has good lasting power,  I can certainly see why they are called 'paints'

 I'm a huge nail polish fan, especially Barry M, you can't go wrong it's cheap, it lasts and they have so many to chose from. Recently they bought out the 'effects' nail paint, which the world has gone nuts for (including me) but also 2 new A/W shades - 'Dusky Mauve' and 'Indigo'.

I only picked up one, and the one in question is the 'Dusky Mauve'. Apparently this is a dead ringer for the Chanel 'Particuliere' I got it wrong! Paradoxal! I've not tried the Chanel so can't say but plenty of reviews and bloggers claim it is.

As you can see it has a slightly bruised effect with a hint of mauve shimmer.

My room was so dark it was hard to get a good snap of this so:
Without flash
With flash.
You can kinda see the shimmer, it looks alot more purple in these pics, I'd say it's slightly browner.

Have you used any Barry M lip paints? What colours were good?

  4. i've only got one of the lipsticks, no. 52 which is just a ridiculous pink. i want to try some more though like the lavender & peach which are harder colours to find in other brands. pink ribbon looks lovely though!

  5. I need to get that nail polish! Keep seeing it everywhere. The lipstick looks like it would be really bright but actually isn't, I'm going to keep that colour in mind. I love Barry M but find the site so annoying as the images are so small you can't see the colours properly!
    Thanks for this review :) x

  9. Thank you for your kind comment!

    I think that polish looks closer to Chanel's "Paradoxal." You know, the purple-grey one that came out this year?

    I wish Barry M was available in the States. I hear great things about that brand!

  15. I tend to find Barry M nail paints go gloopy after a few months which puts me off. Haven't tried the lipsticks though but I love the one you've got so I might check it out! :)

  24. I approve this post. Pink lipstick just saves lives in general. What a nice color on you though! So cute :)

  25. The lip paints are gorgeous. I always try wanted to try them, but just never taken the leap because some of the other products look a bit garish. I love the range of colours they have and pink ribbon is just perfect. It seems like a really easy colour to wear!

    I can never seem to pick the right natural shade, i have to see it on others and ask!

  27. The lippy looks gorgeous on you. I'm a bit of a lipstick novice so it's not something I've tried but I do like something with a bit of staying power. I may try it out!

  40. GAH! I can't believe I missed the 30% off code :S
    I love Barry M stuff - there's such an amazing range of colours! I've got two of the lip paints, I think one's called Coral and the other's called Peachy Pink - they're both lovely colours but I find them quite drying, I always have to wear a lot of lip balm underneath. I do love the Nail Paints though - that Dusky Mauve colour is fab, and it does look like Paradoxal (not that I've actually got it - I'm not spending £16 on a Chanel polish when you can get identical ones for so much cheaper!) xxx

  41. I've never tried Barry M ! It's a British brand yes ? I'm not sure if we can find it in Australia ! Looks very good on you ;-)

  42. I've only ever tried one of their lipsticks and it's a black one, it has great staying power so I might try more.

    Check out my blog, I have a giveaway open!
