Barry M lip paint: shade 54- peach

Hi everyone.
I was planning to publish this post yesterday, but I am still having problems with my blogger account and my laptop isn't working :( I will still try my best to post every day. Today I am reviewing one of my recent purchases- a Barry M lip paint in shade 54 - Peach. I am not impressed with it to be honest and I will explain why.
Barry M Lip Paint- shade 54/Peach £4.50 link
 
"Moisturising lip paint by Barry M. Featuring a rich pigmented formula with a smooth texture, it glides offering long lasting colour. Ideal for creating this season’s statement lip, the lip paints are available in a selection of vibrant hues"
 
I was expecting it to be a peachy shade, but it is too bright for me. When I swatch it on my hand it looks lovely, but on my lips it looks very orange and not flattering at all.
I don't like the consistency either. It makes my lips very dry and if they are a tiny bit chapped- it just looks horrible.  I tried it on top of a lip balm and if it is applied lightly it looks ok, but I am still not sure about it. I took many pictures of the lipstick on my lips, but every single one of them looked unattractive! I very rarely say that, but it is true. Product info claims that the lipstick glides on and that it is moisturising- in my opinion it is the opposite!
I love the packaging and the price is very affordable, but unfortunately I don't get on with this product. I love Barry M nail paint though :)
 
EDIT: Keep in mind that everybody's experience can be different. I am sharing my opinion. Most people find the lip paints very drying, but I found some neutral/positive  reviews as well.
The only way I can make this lipstick work is to apply it very lightly on top of a generous amount of a very moisturising lip balm.
It appears quite creamy on my hand, but it dries quickly and leaves my lips extremely dry and uncomfortable.

  5. I've had the same problems with every single Barry M lip paint except the magic green one, they just apply really badly, it's literally like slapping paint on your lips! It's a shame because they look so pigmented in the bullet :( xx

    1. My favourite orangey colour is MAC Vegas Volt- it is absolutely beautiful! I will review it soon. It is worth every penny.

  11. The colour looks so pretty so that really sucks it applies so horribly! I hate when that happens - such a dissapointment. I agre with you, the packaging is beautiful - but it doesnt matter how lovely it is if the product is only So-So!

    1. It's a shame. It is totally unwearable on it's own. I do use it on top of a lip balm sometimes to add a hint of colour.

    1. I tried a pink one before, but gave it to my sister immediately. I hated it, but she quite liked it :)

  13. I tried one of their nudes once and I actually thought I'd picked up a concealer by accident. It was horrendous; dry, actually a creamy beige on application when the lipstick itself looked more pinky nude and generally vile. I love their eyeliners though! Rough with the smooth I guess :)

  14. That's a shame :/ I feel the same about Barry M lipsticks, far too drying. Pretty colour though! xx

    1. They should really rethink the consistency- it feels horrible!

  15. The swatch really does make it look like an amazing colour to have. I have one BarryM lip paint in my lipstick collection and i too think that it is horrible and very drying indeed! I can't believe that their lipsticks are so awful, yet their lipgloss formulation is so good. Its always a shame when you have high hopes for products and it turns out to be rubbish. Their lipglosses are good~ you should try them :) xxx

  16. I only have one Barry M lipstick i love the formula of and it's a deep red one, literally gorgeous and moisturising, but the rest of them leave me cold, such a shame cos the colours are spot on, sort it out Barry M!!

  17. It's sad, that just colour of lipstick nice... and just on your hand

  18. Got to say not a big Barry M lip product fan. If you want something nice but cheap ELF and Rimmel seem to be the way to go. But like you said, everyone reacts differently to things! Hope you find a colour that suits you better soon :)

  19. I have this exact shade and I feel exactly the same as you! I always just wear it over a balm now but it is still a little dry x

  20. In my experience, the consistency of the Barry M Lip Paints varies from one shade to another. I have several and actually do like them. I agree that they are drying, though. What I do is apply them over a lip liner with a brush and then pair them with a nice smooth balm over - I use ELF Studio Moisturizing Lip Balm and it works well for me.
    The shade I personally hated was Coral - terrible colour and terrible consistency.
    And yes - they do not compare to my favourite L'Oréal or Chanel ones at all, but you can find some nice and actually wearable shades in the line. Too bad the quality is not consistent throughout the lip paint line.

  21. Uh-ohhhh...the color does look so pretty in the tube and on the swatch! Too bad it's so drying. Guess with my perpetually dry lips, I should just stay away from these :D
