Barry M Lipstick No 151

Hey dolls! I bought this Barry M Lipstick a couple of weeks ago, I loved the colour of it in the shop and in my mind I was comparing it to Vegas Volt by MAC. I’m sure it was a dupe for it in the shop even though I don’t own Vegas Volt myself so can’t compare it. I think because I want VV so much I wanted it to be a dupe - ha!

Anyway this lippie is bright, really bright. As usual with me I don’t have a lip liner to match so my application is a little wobbly around the edges but I can live with that. Darren ♥ hates it, he says bright lipstick looks cheap and reminds him of Kat “I am your Muvver!” Slater (programme called EastEnders for my readers across the pond).

I’ve used it in 2 ways, 1, Vaseline first then lipstick applied thinly for a subtle look 2 full on coral/orange power. I like both looks.

The lipstick itself doesn't say if it's a sheen, satin or cream. I found it to be quite drying and did need to put vaseline on before both applications. I bought this in Superdrug for £3.99. 

What do you think? Too bright? Would you dare to where it?


  1. I love the bright Orange one, it looks lovely , but then I am biased !! Mum x

  2. @Mumma - Thank you, I think I do too, it's even brighter IRL! xx

  3. I love your blog! Im a new follower, and I cant wait to read more!

    Follw me too? <3

  4. I find loads of Barry M lipsticks really drying...it's the only thing that puts me off them. Love the colour!xx

  5. See I think that colour looks stunning on you, but I can never pull colours like that off. Its always nudes/pinks for me- the brightest I've got is Mac's Cut a Caper lippy lol xxx

  6. That colour really suits you.Think i might pick one of these up and hope it looks as good on me :) xx

  7. I think the colour is beautiful.
    A cool summery colour to brighten up any outfit.
