Barry M Lipglosses in Bubblegum Pink & Strawberry Milkshake


  I'm a big fan of Barry M as they have such an amazing colour range for an affordable brand.  I love their nail polishes and loose eyeshadows so when I saw their lipglosses on ASOS I decided to order two.  I choose Bubblegum Pink (medium pink) and Stawberry Milkshake (pale pink).

  These lipglosses are packaged in nice sleek tubes which make them look much more expensive than they are.  I always prefer round packaging for lipglosses, mascaras etc. as it means it's easier to get the last bits of product.  These lipglosses are strongly scented to match their names so that might irritate some people.  I hate the smell of bubblegum so Pink Bubblegum kind of grosses me out.  Strawberry Milkshake on the otherhand smells amazing.  Barry M Lipglosses are smooth and creamy and remind me of MAC's Cremsheen Glasses, which are one of my all time favourite lipglosses.

  In terms of colour I prefer Bubblegum Pink as Strawberry Milkshake has a white sheen to it that I find unflattering.  Bubblegum Pink looks great on it's own and on top of light pink lipsticks.  I think if Bubblegum Pink had the scent of Strawberry Milkshake it's be the perfect lipgloss.  Overall I'm not in love with these but I'm impressed with the formula and am curious to try other colours.

Availability: ASOS (Ships for free to Canada) or  Devu Cosmetics (Ships from Canada for $9.95)

  17. Ou I'm a fan of both the shades. Beautiful. I always look forward to your lip product posts b/c you make them all look so tempting and appealing. I was thinking of taking full face shots too when I post lip color swatches. It gives a better idea of the lip colors. :) I wish I could buy these... pigmented glosses are great and effortless!
