So yeah, this 'magic' piece of make-up is a lip paint that appears green but when you put it on your lips it gives you your own shade of pink! It does this by adapting to the Alkaline in your lips so everyone can achieve their own personal look.

Our Guinea Pig for the lippy was Sharelle and here's what she had to say about it (inc. pics):
'I apologise in advance for the pics of me lol I'm so embarrassed. I haven't put a filter on them either because I wanted the pictures to be true to colour. My iPhone's front camera isn't the best either so excuse the quality. If this gets too long for you just scroll to the bottom where I've done a quick summarised bullet point review.
Here's a pic of me with nothing on my lips so you can compare the difference. Ahhh!
Just to make sure that I wasn't wasting my money, as soon as I found the lipstick in Boots I used the tester on the back of mine and my mums hand to see whether it really differs depending on your colour and it did! Mine was more orange compared to my mum (she's like 2 shades darker than I am).
|When I first put it on|
(with loads of coats)
((extra extra pink))
And even when I was awake it didn't go easy on it. I was busy chatting away, even went for a McDonalds and had a full large meal WITH a milkshake (because I'm a skinny health freak.. not) and it was still on after that. Please bare in mind that I did not reapply it what so ever. But to be fair when I first put it on I put on a lot of coats because initially it doesn't come out pink straight away, so I put on quite a bit and it came out REALLY pink! LOL <<<
So for those of you who plan to use this lipstick and don't want to look like someone's given you a hickey on your lip, don't do what I did. After I'd eaten it wasn't as pink though so that was okay. But if you like that kind
of shade I suppose it could be used to go out to a party or something, but it's not what I'd wear on a casual day.
The next day I gave it another try, but this time with just a quick thin coat and it came out so lovely, like a subtle pink. It was really cute. Have a look >>>
And THEN to spice things up a bit, I put on my usual orangey (which for me is like a nude lol) shimmer lipgloss (from Accessorize) with a coat of the Barry M on top, and I thought it was gorgeous, that was probs my fav way to wear it. Look below.
A few additional things I should also comment on:
1. It's quite a balmy lipstick if you know what I mean, it glides on and has a little sheen to it (not too much, just enough) so that's quite nice, unless you like your mattes.
2. After a while it sort of blends into your lips like a lip stain which is probably why it lasts so long
3. It's not perfumed, it sort of smells like clay but that's not noticeable until you give it a proper sniff like I did because I'm weird lool
But yeah, I had a lot of fun experimenting with it and discovering all of the different ways to wear it
Overall I'd say I was happy with the lip paint, it does everything it says on the tin (not that it comes in a tin but you get the gist). Thank you very much Barry M!'
QUICK SUMMARY REVIEW:
- Smooth glide
- A little sheen
- Has sort of a stain effect
- Lasts AGES!
- The more coats you apply, the darker/stronger the colour and vice versa
- Can be worn on top of other lip glosses/lip sticks to achieve desired shade
- You don't have to worry about eating food or talking for ages because it ain't goin nowhere!
Please take into consideration before purchasing this lipstick that the colour of Sharelle's lips/skin is probably different from yours so your look is most likely going to also be different.
