The metallic lip trend has hit the beauty world with a bang. I won’t lie, I think I may be too old and uncool to pull it off. But that does not stop me from trying whatsoever 🙂 I picked up the new Barry M Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kits while browsing the new makeup in Boots.
I had points burning a hole in my Boots card and wanted to buy something fun. The colours are quite wearable, so I thought I would have some fun swatching and writing about them. And then hopefully even attempt to wear one of them outside the comfort of my own home 🙂
I had picked up a couple of the original Barry M Lip Kits when they first came out and did a post on them here. I, overall liked them. The consistency was inconsistent though and I feel like the metallic version are the same. Although using both the lip liner and the liquid lipstick together makes all the colours opaque and vibrant. And they are of course sold as a pair.
The Barry M Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kits come in three shades.
Being a lip kit, they come with a lip liner.
And, matching liquid lipstick.
I’ve swatched all three on my arm and on the lips to show you them in action.
First up we have ’24 Carat’.
Next up is ‘Allure’. This is probably my favourite because in my opinion, it’s the most wearable shade. Although the liner is a little harder to work with than the other two shades. It’s not as soft and opaque in colour.
The third shade in the Barry M Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kits is ‘Prestige’.
This is the darkest of the three colours.
They all dry down to a matte, non transferable finish with obviously a metallic look.
Like with most matte liquid lipsticks on the market, they do feel somewhat tight when they dry down. That is something to be weary of.
You can buy the Barry M Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kits in Boots in store or online here. I got the three on offer as the brand are on 3 for 2 right now. They cost €8.99 each.
Would you wear any of the shades?
