And thus it was sealed, I decided to buy Barry M Punky Pink and see what I thought. Now, as you can see from the pic below, I have quite full lips so tend to steer clear of bright shades because it makes me look like just a pout with legs and arms attached but this Barry M shade is gorgeous, it really suits me (if I say so myself) and even my boyfriend likes it!
It goes on really well and lasts for ages - I really put it through its paces over the weekend, it survived a Pizza Express meal and a night out (two separate applications, I'm not that gross that I keep lipstick on for days.) without having to be reapplied! It can also be blotted down so it's not as bright, I do this for work and gloss added over the top, but this decreases its staying power.
My only criticism of this is that it is a little drying and if you have any dry skin on your lips, it will show it but tbh this is something that's easily sorted.
I bought mine from ASOS as I was putting an order in anyway and had a 20% off code so this lippy was actually only £3.40! I think the usual retail price is £4.25 which is still amazing for such a great product, I will definately be repurchasing!
