After hearing many reviews on Barry M’s Matte Me Up Lip Kits, it was only right that I tried one out for myself.
I tend to use both lip liners and lipsticks in my everyday makeup routine. Applying both helps you to create a neat finish and also helps the product last longer. I find lip kits really helpful as they match up the perfect lip liner and lipstick shade for you. The Barry M Lip Kit I chose to buy features both the lip liner and liquid lipstick in the shade Go To.
I love the shade of this product and as the name states, this will definitely be a go to lip product of mine. It’s the perfect shade for every day use and it looks like a dupe of Mac’s Velvet Teddy, which I adore. Using the liner first helps you keep a clean finish to your makeup look.
The liner which comes in the kit is a pencil liner, which I am really impressed with. I much prefer a pencil liner to a plastic coated one, as you are able to get a lot more use from the product by sharpening it.
I wore both products whilst on a Christmas shopping trip this weekend and I am really impressed with the outcome. After stuffing my face at lunch the product did not budge which is great. One thing I would say is that it does start to feel slightly dry after a few hours but if you apply some lip balm, the product should last all day.
You can see my finished look above. I am really happy with this product and the pricing is more than half of alternative lip kits such as Kylie Jenner’s. I think for £6.99 you can’t go wrong.
This product is a new favourite of mine and I will definitely be stocking up on some more shades this season.
