Today I’m going to be doing a review on this Barry M lip paint in ‘Pinkie Gold’.
As you can see in the picture I’ve taken above, this lipstick is a light-medium pink, with golden shimmer through it. I have medium NC30 skin and this compliments me rather well. This lipstick is something I can wear by itself during the daytime, but it’s also easy to glam it up with lip gloss for the night wear.
I love the fact that it’s moisturising and pigmented at the same time. The lipstick goes on so smoothly and evenly, so it’s a dream to work with. I think that the golden sheen on the lipstick gives a 3-dimensional look to the lips, which is a look I desire.
Ever since I got this lipstick a few months ago, I’ve been using it at least 3 times a week - from this week though, I’ve started putting it in my makeup bag for touch-ups throughout the day as it doesn’t last more than 4 hours. It’s a lovely soft mauve-y pink that I imagine would be flattering on a lot of people. It can be played up with a pink or purple gloss or played down with a creamy nude gloss. It’s lovely either way.
The packaging is a very sleek, black tube and instead of it being the typical round casing, it’s almost ‘square-ish’, if that makes sense. There is no scent to the lipstick, which is a plus for me.
Here is a quick overview of the pro’s and con’s.
- Versatile colour.
- Moisturising and pigmented.
- Convenient packaging.
- Lasts very good.
- The gold to the shade, may make some looked a little washed out.
- Barry M is very hard to find outside of the UK.
Overall, I recommend this lipstick and can’t wait to try other Barry M products.
