Barry M 160 Lip Paint Pot | Hello I'm Clo
I ended up going to
bed last night really early, so early I watched and surfed YouTube for an hour
or two before finally nodding off to sleep. Whilst surfing I found 'Sprinkle of
glitter' and 'Zoella' doing their all time make up favorites, which they filmed
nearly three years ago, which led me onto Louise's (sprinkle of glitter ) video
on lip products she wished she hadn't have bought, because I had time to kill I
sat with my cocoa to watch my first ever 'poopy products' video.
It was actually
really informative, as I have to admit I really dislike online negativity, for
me, before watching this video, if a product was *excuse me* crap, It didn't
deserve air time or my effort, but Louise showed me that regretful buying
videos are simply to guide her viewers buying choices.
She gives Insight
into things such as nibs drying out, packaging not suitable for use on-the-go
and what are good dupes and what are not. Half way through her 'poopy lip
products ' hall she mentioned the Barry
M lip paints. A package of which arrived yesterday morning (see my Barry mvideo coming next week!) I too, was very disappointed in the colours when they
arrived from Amazon. They were absolutely nothing like the photographs. The
colours were all much of a muchness and were weak pigmented and in no way worth
Ironic how I wasn't a
fan of those types of videos, yet by just watching one I could have saved a few
pennies. Never mind. I'm a make up artist, surely I can make something out of
I'm not overwhelmed
by these products at all, the packaging is lovely, displays what brand it is
and what number shade, yet doesn't print the name of the colour anywhere, not
helpful when you've got hundreds of makeup products, I too, like so many of you
guys like a cutsie little name for a colour, it helps me remember what shade it
is and somehow provides an odd, sweet attachment to a product and may
ultimately (but sadly) determine whether I like that piece of make up or not.
When over the
disappointment of the pigment, I managed to pluck up the effort to try a little
of the 160 black cherry on my lips, properly make an effort and to my surprise
in the night lighting it was a really subdued colour that was understated, not
brash or bold yet stood out against my pale skin in the best possible way!
Needing some back up
on my new thought revelation I asked the ever trusty parents what they thought.
Got a mundane 'yes' from dad without
so much of a raise of an eyelid. Mum was a fan, she liked the tone and the way
it complimented my skin. Piece of advice you guys! Ask females! Or guys for a
particular passion for lipstick shades (my
dad is not one of those men!)
Barry m lip paint 160
black cherry is more like cherry without any black, it's not that dark it's
more of a purple and red mix. It looks darker in the stick than it actually is.
Let me know what you
like / dislike about the Barry M lip paints and if you have a fav!
I shall continue my
Barry M journey tomorrow, for now I’m off to bed!
Lots of love,
Clo :- ))
