Barry M – Matte Me up Lip Paints

This is a first impressions/review.

Barry M recently released their Limited Edition lip kits and these also in their matte lip range. I didn’t want to purchase the lip kits since I don’t always use a lip liner. I thought I would just give the single ones a go first. Costing £4.99 so super affordable.

A few weeks back I swathed one of these in superdrug but never bought it because I thought it looked too liquidly and would perhaps take too long to dry. Ohitsonlyalice YouTube video convinced me to buy them, she did some beautiful swatches of them.

Names in order of the swatches

On the scene
Pop up

Can I just say how amazing these are :o seriously pigmented, not bitty and lumpy on the lips and super long lasting. I own a kylie Jenner Matte lip kit and I am afraid to say these are much better for me. Many would disagree but I found my Kylie Jenner separated and went bitty on my lips. I have only worn two shades from the Barry M Matte lip paint range but assuming the other two will be the same. They lasted for hours even after drinking and eating. Only thing I will say is they go on wet/runny BUT that’s a good thing because it gives you time to work with it. I hate it when matte lip paints dry straight away.

Can not wait to buy the other shades.

Really recommend these

Thanks for reading

  • Hey Lisa !
    I have only got one shade of these, Pop Up which I bought while I was visiting London last month (no Barry M for us over here in France !). At first I just swatched the lippy in the store and left cause I wasn’t sure about it… but eventually after a whole shopping day I had to go back and get it because it was still so pigmented, vivid and had not transferred a bit ! :D
    Now that I’m sitting in my home near Paris, there’s only one thing I’m thinking : why did I not get all the other shades ?! I can’t wait to go back and get the rest of them, along with the Lip Kits ! :D

    Thanks for your review !
    Have a nice day !
