Barry M Lipgloss Collection

Barry M Lipglosses | £3.99-£4.49 each 
L - R / 9 - Cherry Glitter / 5 - Bubblegum Pink / Limited Edition - Strawberry /  2 - Toffee / 3 - Strawberries & Cream / Glossy Tube - Iridescent Violet Glitter /

Admittedly, I'm the fussiest little madam you will ever meet when it comes to lip gloss.  I am a huge collector of lipstick and if i ever treat myself to something then rest assured it will be a lip product, but one thing I really struggle with is glosses. I've tried all kinds - stains, long-wear, cheap as chips, high-end.. the lot. And so far none of them I've found have come close to my trusty Barry M's.  I hate feeling like I've dunked my lips in PVA glue or chip fat.. (hmm lovely thought for you all there..) but Barry M have ticked the box for a fuss-free lipgloss for me.

Barry M glosses are available in an array of shades (although i do wish they had a few more red/brighter options) - and so far I have 6 in my collection. Each one smells like the name of the colour (toffee is by far the yummiest in my opinion) and are decently pigmented to provide colour pay-off even without lipstick underneath.  They aren't the most long lasting but they don't feel sticky at all which is what matter the most to me with a gloss.. they just smooth on really easily and I don't feel the need to wipe it straight off again! I slightly prefer the gloss wands over the glossy tubes - just because I much prefer a doe-foot applicator as there is more control over how you apply them to the lips. Those who find glitter lip products might find the glitter glosses slightly irritating but the texture and consistency overrides this for me and I just find them very comfortable to wear on a daily basis. Overall they're just really good little lipglosses to have in your collection - and if like me, you can't stand lipglosses, then give these a go - they're currently the only ones I can wear with ease and I will without a doubt be completing my collection for the full set (next in line is the coral shade!) You can view the collection here.

What is your favourite lipgloss? I'd love to discover some more fabulous ones!

  3. I had toffee a while back but left it in my bag in a theatre in New York so I've been missing it ever since, it was so so yummy and definitely a winner in terms of texture! I must get my hands on it again, along with some of the others xx

  4. I also have the Bublegum Pink one and you're completely right, they smell absolutely divine! Although I much prefer more nude or slightly pink shades, this one is a bit too bright for me. :-) xoxo

  8. Ive been off lipglosses for ages possibly even years as i hate feeling like the sticky texture or it being gloopy if thats the word haha on my lips :( frustrates me so much. But these seems really lovely pigmented and light will have to have a look out for them. Just the post i was after to try and get back into lipglosses this year. Thank you :)

  18. I have a couple of the glossy tube but this post has persuaded me to buy some of their lipglosses! I feel Barry M definitely need some higher ratings they have such lovely products and at a very affordable price too!
