Barry M & Gosh Lipstick Swatches
In this photo, Colours described by Barry M; 101 = Marshmellow, 100 = Baby pink, 132 = Pinkie gold sparkle and finally 136 = Golden bronze. Swatches below.
101 is a nude colour which I can live without, it's nice but nothing special. 100 is a baby pink which is quite similar to 129 (the lavender one) I haven't really been able to wear this, it just looks to obvious. 132 is amazing, a lovely pink with gold reflects. 136 - FINALLY IS MY FAVOURITE! I have been wearing this everyday since I got it, which was sunday, so 3 days so far :) it's beautiful! It's a stunning nude / bronze colour, it just looks so natural, it really makes your lips look plumper. Also, might I add that the formula for 132 and 136 is diffeent to the 100 and 101. 132 & 136 is much creamier, softer and easier to apply, where as 100 & 101 are a bit dry. Anyone else had that thought? Anyway, I wear 136 with a neautral eye and a dewy face with MAC golsd deposit on the cheeks. Try it, if you haven't done so already, and seriously swatch them first, get the shades which are creamier in texture!
From left to right; 134 Darling, 131 Amethyst, and 128 Mocha. Swatches below.
Darling has become my favourite nude, it's just so creamy and luscious! I know alot of other people agree, as it was their ranting and raving that inspired me to get mine! Now, amethyst is beautiful, it's a purple with a hint of blue.. also has a very pretty sheen to it. I wore this on Saturday with Jeans, neautral eye and face make up, I'm quite tanned at the moment and this shade just made my lips pop (in my opinion anyway) I'm to frightened to wear the brighter lilacs so opted for this and am happy with my decision. However, I did not slap it on, I gave my lips a light coating. And finally, Mocha.. now this shade is darker than my natural lip colour (obviously) but with a light coating it just made my facial features stand out if that makes sense. I also love the name Mocha.. I love anything associated with, coffee, chocolate and milk :) which links too cookies, mm cookies! I'm having a Homer Simpson moment.
