Barry M Matte Metallics: Yay or Nay?

Hello, beautiful people! Today we’re taking a look at one of Barry M’s metallic lip kits. I was very hesitant about buying this because I had tried MUAs metallic lips and they dried my lips right out and I couldn’t keep it on more than a couple of hours. However, I can honestly say that I am very happy that I decided to purchase this product. 🙂

So, the lip kit comes in a nice metallic looking box and it screams BUY ME! So I did. The shade I went for is ‘prestige’ which is a red-ish colour. There was also a bright pink one and a coral one but neither of those shades seem to work with me. This shade, however, is simply BEAUtiful! ❤





As you see, I have very pale skin and so it made the colour pop even more and I’m truly in love with how it looks on the lips. You can definitely see the metallic shine but it’s a matte – so it dries down well and this helps the colour last. And boy does it last!

Yesterday, I wore the lip kit for 6 hours and drunk tea and ate some pasta and it only slightly dissolved around the inner of the bottom lip but definitely nothing to cry over.

I’d also like to mention that this stuff dried down VERY quickly and doesn’t feel tacky/sticky on the lips. It also doesn’t dry the lips out the same way the MUA one did (or the KVD everlasting lips did – see previous blog post).

It’s also very pigmented and only needs one dip and one coat! Which I love as I hate layering liquid lipsticks as it can send then a bit flaky and tacky. I can also confirm that it is transfer proof. When I kissed the back of my hand and inner arm there was no colour transfer. Even after drinking from a white mug, no colour was left behind. Not too sure if it’s snog-proof though, ha-ha, you’d have to test that for yourselves!

So, overall, I really LOVE this lip kit and Barry M are definitely up there among my favourites for liquid matte lips. It’s a YAY from me and so next time you pass a Barry M stand I would highly recommend you to check this product out~!

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day/night!
