Barry M Lip Liner // Help.

I’ve never bothered with lip liner before. But since I started experimenting a bit more with lip products, I started to feel like I should get one.

If I’m honest, I wasn’t sure what to look for when buying my first one. I just went with a well known highstreet brand, picked a colour closest to my favourite shade of Provocolips, and hoped for the best.


I somehow managed to buy two different brands by accident. But not to worry, I guess the other one will be good for reviewing. They’re basically the same shade, too. I don’t remember ordering both of them. Maybe I was drunk. Or maybe I’m just an idiot.


Now we’ve that out of the way. This Barry M Lipliner is in shade 9 – Mulberry.

It’s advertised as a creamy textured liner that’s firm enough to draw a line but easily blendable. Which sounded like what I wanted. I think. I don’t know. I’m just winging this. Can you tell? Lololololol. BEST REVIEW EVER. Please don’t unfollow me. People keep doing that lately. I don’t know if it’s because I’m so wank at reviews or just a dick. Or maybe it’s because my comp ended.

Now I’ve made this awkward, haven’t I?



Let’s just let the pictures do the talking, shall we.

Here is my face with no liner. Then a picture of my face with liner + lippy.

This stays on for around 4 hours before you can’t see it anymore. It probably wouldn’t have been so obvious if I hadn’t have worn it with Provocolips, which basically stays on until you peel it off with acid.

What’s your favourite liner?

  2. Ugh aren’t unfollowers the worst? I wish that didn’t ruin my day, but it really does. I have one thing of lip liner in a nude color from NYX…I should probably get more because lip liner is so hot right now…

  3. this made me laugh! ‘Maybe I’m just wank at reviews or just a dick’ hehe ok ok so the immature child in me came out to play! Haha

    I love this colour! I’ve wanted one like his so check it out!

    I really like Mac liners after trying my first one but they are pricey. No7 are really good as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ps people following and unfollowing like a game of random peek-a-boo piss me off!! *rant over* ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. That’s a nice color! I find my lip color always lasts longer when I use liner. My favorite is Kevyn Aucoin Medium liner cause it goes with practically any lip color.

  5. i only have one lip liner that i use with darker lips, haha. i’d like to get more for different shades but don’t know which ones are good either.. this one looks lovely, so maybe i’ll check what else barry m has! xx

  6. I like the colour on you! I wasn’t a lip liner user for years and now it’s just one more thing I need. I really like Nyx ones, they’re cheap and have a really good range. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I honestly haven’t bothered with too many lip liners myself but the colour is pretty! heheh, but the staying power for it is really bad I think? or maybe I’m wrong I have no clue about the staying power for lip liners :p so excuse me for that one!
    I’ve only used the Sleek Lip liner but that one wasn’t for me ๐Ÿ˜›

  8. First of all, I don’t know if I’ve already said but I bought the deodorant you suggested on your blog and I’m liking it so far!

    Secondly, lip liner is one of my favourite things to use! I have three different kinds, but I really only use one c:

  9. Hmm I’ve heard of a few different ways you can use lip liner. 1. Line your lips and then put on the lipstick. 2. Fill in lips with lip liner and then add lipstick 3. add lipstick and then line lips. I like the last one the best because it evens out the lines from the lipstick! There are my tips for lip liner ๐Ÿ˜›

  10. This looks great, I have one of their liners in red and it stays ok, but of course I use it with Lime Crime & that stuff stays until you rip it off your lips, so who knows how long it lasts. But, this colour looks great on you ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  11. I had a really good laugh, thanks for that! I mean, I got into lip pencils as well lately, but don`t know what to expect from them. I normally use the Rimmel Lasting finish ones, but this looks very pretty as well. Do they have a good variety of shades?

  12. Gah, I don’t think we have Barry M here in Canada or I haven’t seen it! And don’t you change the way you blog, write, I love you just the way you are!

    And yes, hate unfollowers after the competition ends. Makes me roll me damn eyes to the back of my head.

  13. I don’t know if it’s just me or what but the color looks a lot more pinkish on your hands than on your lips, either way it looks good!

  14. Honestly, I only use the Rimmel London liners. I’m too cheap to buy any high end liners.. or any brand for that matter haha. I only have one lip liner at a time. If I want a new one, then I buy another, but not til I finish the one I already have.

  15. I don’t have one, though like you, now i’ve got a few lippies under my belt feel I should get one. But I said that months ago and here we are. It’s not top of my list but i’m sure eventually i’ll get round to purchasing one! x
