Barry M: Lip Lacquer crayon - Cherry Red
There are 5 shades available, I opted to try No.2 a 'Cherry Red'.
- The texture is very smooth, thick yet creamy and very moisturising. It goes on so easily without much thought.
- The colour itself is pretty, it is indeed a cherry shade of red providing a highly pigmented gloss effect. It is very pink toned with hints of blue, and has very fine sparkles for a voluminous effect.
- My only complaint was that after application it made my lips feel a bit tacky but that feeling went away after a few minutes.
- I haven't worn this all day so can not comment accurately on the longevity of it, but it feels like it would last forever due to the formula.
I honestly don't wear a bright lip that often, and if I do it will probably be in summer time teamed with a white dress, lots of leather and vintage accessories.
This colour was a hit with the hubby, usually his immediate reaction to a bright lip is; "What the hell is that on your lips?" this time he said, "it actually looks quite nice". Hmmmm, so can this be the shade of red I can get away with? I think so!! :) I personally really like the shade and look forward to rocking it in the summer.
Below, I have swatched a true red lipstick alongside the Cherry Red crayon so that you can see the difference.
