Barry M 154 Lipstick: Superdrug/Boots (£4.49)

Barry M 154 is a peachy toned nude lip stick and a recent addition to Barry M's growing lipstick collection. Unlike alot of light nude lipsticks this shade is actually very forgiving and doesnt wash you out or make you look like you have corpse lips! Thanks to the wearable peachy tone of the lipsticks it doesn't look too milky or like you have concealer lips look, Barry M 101 anyone?

I find Barry M formulas to be a bit hit and miss. Sometimes they apply matte, sometimes creamy, sometimes they last, somtimes they dont. Barry M Pale Nude has a sort of glossy finish to it which means its more moisturising than some of the other formulas I've tried in the past from Barry M. It reminds me of a MAC Lipstick formula actually, something in-between the Glaze's and the Creamsheens. It actually reminds me a tiny bit of MAC Shy Girl in colour but a little bit more nude and lighter, the texture is very similar to MAC Hue too, with a very glossy finish. On me I think it is a bit TOO nude for what I would normally choose, the colour is very similar to my skin tone actually which Im not 100% sure if it really works for me or not. But the photos are for review purposes only!

Overall I'd say it's a pretty average lipstick especially for the price and compared to other Barry M shades. The finish means it sinks into lines on the lips and the coverage is fair.  I found it lasted about 3 hours before needing a top up, but I think glossier finishes tend to loose their coverage quicker than others. I'd recommend it if you wanted a cheapy nude lipstick thats not completely "concealer lips" or "corpse like" the warm tones make it very wearable !

  1. I find most barry m lipstick quite drying, but I might pick this one up due to the glossy finish! xo

  3. The only Barry M Lipstick I have ever been a fan of was the Magic Colour one and that's more of a stain any way.

  16. Barry M lipsticks are so confusing.. you never know what kind of formula or finish you're going to get when you buy a lipstick from them! This looks like a nice nude though X

  19. It looks a bit too light. But then again, I'm not a huge fan of nude lips anyway! Love the lashes though. :) xx

  20. have you tried any of the kate moss rimmel lipsticks? 03 is a nice nude shade without being too nude if that makes sense! it's nice and warm and looks quite natural but also moisturised :)
