|Barry M Lip Paints (L-to-R: 154 Pale Nude, 153 Pink Ribbon, and 145 Punky Pink)|
My obsession with trying out more Barry M Lip Paints continues. (And aren't they gorgeous?!!)
I must say ordering online from Barry M is always a bit of a gamble, as you have no idea if what you see is what you'll get. It took lots of Googling to get a better idea of what each shade looked like. This time round, I picked out 3 shades when I placed an order for my Fuchsia Lip Pencils, and they are:
|(Swatches L-to-R): Barry M Lip Paints in 145 Punky Pink, 153 Pink Ribbon, and 154 Pale Nude|
154 Pale Nude (creme) - "Concealer-lips" nude with a slight peach base. Quite opaque, with a lot of white in the base so it may not be the easiest shade to wear unless you really like that sort of look.
153 Pink Ribbon (creme) - Bright peach/coral-pink; VERY similar to MAC Chatterbox and NYX Fig. Perfect bright pink for those who are looking for a warmer, more coral alternative to shades like Pink Nouveau.
145 Punky Pink (creme) - Rich, deep cyclamen-pink. Listed on dupe sites as a 100% match for MAC Girl About Town. This goes on a softer shade than it looks in the tube, so don't be scared by the color. It's not TOO magenta or blue-based, so it would be flattering on most people.
Each Barry M Lip Paint is £4.49.
As always, I'll be following up soon with more detailed posts on each of the 3 shades, swatched alongside other similar colors!
