Barry M Lip Paints Swatches & Review

Posted on: April 1, 2012


I’m quite fond of Barry M products. Back in my partying days I used to wear their lipsticks with their lip gloss over the top on almost every night out! I think I have around ten of these so I thought I’d just swatch four of them for now and I’ll do the rest another time. The colours I’ll be using are 147 Peachy Pink, 101 Marshmallow, 100 Baby Pink and 129 Palest Lavender.

These cost £4.49 and are available from barrym.com, Boots & Superdrug.

Out of the ones I’ve swatched today, they were all fairly drying apart from 129 Palest Lavender which has a more creamy consistency and a slight shimmer to it. I find that they can look chalky on your lips but you can fix that by applying a balm or gloss over the top.


Marshmallow is  one of my favourite nude lipsticks but a gloss is definitely needed with it otherwise it looks a bit like concealer!


I don’t see the pink in Peachy Pink, it just looks peachy to me, either swatched on my skin or on my lips. It might be more pinky on darker skin seeing as I’m so pale.


Baby Pink has a hint of lilac about it but it is a cute Barbie pink colour, this is another one where you definitely have to use a gloss over the top.


Palest Lavender doesn’t quite look that dark IRL but I couldn’t seem to capture it properly.

All of these last for hours but the darker colours are prone to staining. The only one that does this out of the four colours I’ve shown is 147 Peachy Pink.

I think these are definitely worth the price, a complete bargain in my eyes. I like the packaging, matte black with the gold Barry M logo. It makes the lipsticks look more high end, they’re similar to Nars lipsticks, the same shape and colour. They also come in a wide range of colours, even a black! The only thing I don’t like is how easy the numbers rub off on bottom. Marshmallow is my favourite out of all of the ones I own, I’m running pretty low, need to pick up another one soon.

Which of these do you prefer? I’m thinking of including a Lip Paint in my giveaway when I reach 200 followers ❤

The lavender is very unusual!

It is, I don’t think I have anything else like it x

I really like Marshmallow and Peachy Pink 🙂

I think Marshmallow is one of the most popular, it’s always sold out when I go to get myself a back up! x
