As regular readers of my blog will know, I am useless when it comes to lipsticks. I love wearing bright, pretty colours, but always lose the actual lipsticks whether it’s on night out or find them weeks later at the bottom of one of my many handbags. However, this Autumn I have been surprisingly good at making sure my lipsticks are all stocked in one part of my make-up bag and I am determined to get some more high-branded lipsticks in the near future.
An Autumn/Winter trend I absolutely love is deep, dark lips. The darker the better! I was browsing through Boots the other day and came across this gorgeous shade by Barry M. It’s shade no. 160 and it quickly made my monthly favourites, which you can check out here.
When it comes to Barry M I am a huge fan of their nail varnishes but have never really looked at much of their other products. They are renowned for their gorgeous vibrant beauty products and I’m shocked that I’ve never tried a lipstick before, espeically as they have such vivid shades!
The 160 is a stunning dark colour, which looks amazing with any outfit and with some clear lipgloss over the top. It comes out matte and is really vibrant. I’ve worn it constantly since I bought it a few weeks ago and thought it was time for a review. It’s surprisingly really long lasting too. I’ll admit that I didn’t think it would be due to the fact that it costs only £4.49, but it’s brilliant. If you’re looking for a Christmas party lipstick this is the one for you!
Lots of love, Jessie. xoxo
