Review: Barry M Lip Lacquer Crayon

Review: Barry M Lip Lacquer Crayons

This product is somewhat a lipstick but is slightly thicker in formulation and extremely pigmented. They also are not simple in colour and have more to them than initially meets the eye.

The texture is a lot thicker than the sort of balm-stain products we've been seeing a lot in the drugstore recently; so not comparable to those such as the Revlon balm stains. The thick formulation is closer to that of a thick lipstick than a balm. They probably are closer in similarity to the NARS lip crayons.

They cost £4.95 from the drugstore- any Superdrug/Boots with a Barry M counter or section.

I've had these for a very long time, and only just thought of writing a review.

Ballet Pink
Ballet pink is a light white-y pink nude. It is extremely frosty and has a blue-purple sheen when it catches the light. This is not an everyday colour, but I do like it. It's interesting for use as part of a fancy dress costume or something.

Party Pink
This deep pink with dark purple undertones and lots of glitter and gloss does leave a slight stain on the lips. It is the most pigmented lip crayon I have ever used.

It would be perfect for a fancy night out as there's so much more to it than most lipsticks, it's not just a single-toned pink.

With just one swipe!

Because of the pigmentation these crayons are quite thick in formulation, but this isn't necessarily a full on negative. They are slightly sticky, but I find that all lip products are so it's not too much of a big deal.

Most are frosted and/or contain a lot of shimmer and glitter. Because of this, this product may not be for everyone.

I think there are 5+ shades in the range and you get a lot of product in them.

As they wear off during the day (though they are long lasting) the colour fades and some glitter remains. I do, however still recommend these, perhaps just try one colour out.

Do you have these products? What are your favourites from Barry M? Let me know in the comments below.
