Barry M Lipstick Review

5Ribbet collageLink: [x] [x] | Price: £4.49

So I recently purchased 2 Barry M Lipsticks. I’ve never tried lipsticks from Barry M before so I was excited to try these out, especially since I’m just getting into lipsticks. For some reason lipsticks don’t really work on me and I find it card to get them to stick to my lips. These however seem to work very well for me.

The first one is named Genie and it’s a light green stick that when applied to the skin/lips comes out pink. Apparently it comes out a different shade of pink on everyone. On me it comes out in a dark rose pink. It looks really nice against pale skin and looks really nice on. I do get some weird looks when putting it on though, since it’s green but comes out pink. The other Barry M lipstick I own is in a light coral tone and is believe it or not named Coral. It’s a very nice colour that looks really nice on. I really love it and it’s become one of my favourite go to-lipsticks.

The staying power is really great with these and I find they don’t dry my lips out as much as the other lipsticks do and actually they generally make my lips feel more moisturized. So yeah these lipsticks are great, I’ve only tried these two colours so far but I really do want to try some other colours in the future because there’s are amazing.

Max Factor Lipstick Review

3Link: [x] | Price: £7.99

So recently I’ve been wearing this lipstick by Max Factor. It’s a very nice sort of pale pink shade called Angel. It’s such a nice colour especially if you’ve got pale skin. It comes in a small gold lipstick tube that’s really pretty and makes it look high end. I love the colour itself, it doesn’t drown me out, the colour payoff is amazing and it lasts for a long time. I will say that it does dry my lips out quite a lot so I tend to wear a lip balm both under and over this.

So colour pay off and wear time is great but it ends to dry out my lips a lot which ya know, nobody wants.

Sleek Matte Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream Review!

11Link: [x] | Price: £4.99

Bit of a negative review here, because I didn’t actually really like this product. This the Sleek Matte  Me Ultra smooth matte lip cream in the shade petal, which is a nice dark coral shade. The colour itself is really nice and I love the packaging, nice and simply and a good size tube. The product itself however isn’t the greatest. It’s very drying and kind of feels rough on your lips when applied. I don’t know if that makes a lot of sense, but it just feels like it’s drying out and destroying your lips. The colour itself translates on the lips very well, but it’s a very thick cream that once again is very drying.

So really not fond of this product. Probably won’t be buying it again. I’ve seen others says they love this product and others have hated it so it’s all up to opinion really. But I really dislike it.

Makeup Monday: Tanya Burr Lip Gloss

IMG_0129I recently picked up this Lip Gloss from the Tanya Burr Cosmetics range.  This one is in the shade ‘Picnic in the park’ and it’s sort of a dark pink. I find it comes out a lot darker on my lips than it is in the bottle , so I usually take a separate brush (since the applicator it comes with is kind of a weird shape) and brush it across my lips to make it spread out more, and by then it’s not as bright or clumpy and gives a nice light finish. It taste like strawberries and cream and I have to fight not to lick this off my lips because it tastes so good. So really apart from the fact it’s too dark for my skin tone it’s a really nice lip gloss and I definitely want to try some more colours in the range.

Makeup Monday: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm

IMG_0130This is probably by far my favourite lip balm ever. I got this a long time ago from boots at like 3 pounds I think? This is the colourless one but I may buy a coloured one because I’ve seen people using the pink ones and they actually look really nice. Anyway this product works really really well with your lips and protects them nicely whilst keeping them soft. My only pet peeve is sometimes it mixes with my lipgloss rather than resting under it and creates a sort of white flakey stuff. I have no idea if this is my lips or how I’m putting it on but it is kind of annoying as it looks like I’ve got food stuck on my lip.
