Barry M 147 Peachy Pink: boots/superdrug (£4.49)
Barry M 147 Peachy Pink has to be one of my all time favourite lipsticks. I bought it when it first came out many, many moons ago, I could have even been at college when I first purchased it. Flash forward a few years and a massive makeup clear out and I rediscovered it in a dark corner of my always growing makeup collection. I ended up rebuying it a few months ago as it just can't be healthy having a lipstick that long!
Barry M 147 is a bright peachy pink coral toned lipstick with a matte formula. Barry M Peachy Pink is highly pigmented, typically totally opaque in just one swipe. The formula is odd, It feels creamy but also stiff at the same time. I personally wouldn't say that the formula is drying as I don't think thats not the right way to describe how it feels. My lips don't feel dry when I wear it they just feel like the product sits on top of my lips rather than settles in. I think that generally matte lipsticks are a lot harder to apply, which I put down to their more pigmented nature. I'd say this shade just a bit chalky, I've not found a really nice creamy lipstick in this oh so perfect shade of peachy pink in all my makeup travels (Im looking at you Nars Bolereo!).
Despite all this I still wear this lipstick it a lot, It is definitely in my top five all time favourite lipsticks. The colour is spot on for me, Its not for everyone as like I said its quite stiff on the lips and if you do have dry lips it might not work with you. You could even wear a gloss over it like the Collection 2000 Lock N' Hold Lipgloss in Rock Steady to make it less matte. The Barry M lipsticks to have a variety of formulas and finishes so I wouldn't write off the brand after this one review. I have a few more shades I've picked up recently that I'll be posting about over the next few weeks!
