I’ve seen a few comments online about these new lip kits by Barry M and was intrigued enough to give them a go. Lip kits have been made popular by, you guessed it, Kylie Jenner (does that girl influence everything we do now?!) and there have been a few, more affordable dupes appearing recently.
Last month I reviewed the Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in Echelon and thought it was pretty good. However, the more I’ve worn it, the more I’ve disliked it. The formula is pretty terrible. Don’t get me wrong, I love the colour and the lip pencil, but the liquid lipstick itself goes very tacky and grainy and never seems to fully dry. I watched a YouTube video the other day and it was said that these lip kits by Barry M are much, much better and I just had to see for myself!
Inside the kit you get a lip pencil and a liquid lipstick.
The lip pencil is amazingly creamy and easy to apply. The colour is quite different to the liquid lipstick, so I wouldn’t recommend using it to over-line your lips. I used it under the lipstick itself to increase the wear time.
I love the liquid lipstick colour so much! It takes a while to dry and is very runny (be careful! I spilt the tester version all over the floor in my local Boots! 🙈) but once it dries it is beautiful!
This formula really lasts too! It stays on all day and is just so smooth looking. I’m so impressed. This is my favourite lip kit so far – I’d say even better than the Kylie ones!
They are also a fraction of the price of the Kylie kits at only £6.99. There are currently three shades, but Barry M do also sell matte liquid lipsticks on their own and there are quite a few shades available. To buy your own kit from Boots, click here.
