Barry M Lip Gloss in 11 Coral

I think I got this on offer in Wilkinsons, the most unglamorous of locations but suprisingly good for Rimmel and Barry M!

As you've probably seen by now I love a good coral and I'm still searching for 'the one'. Let's see how this compares.
Barry M Lip Gloss in Coral available here 

The Hype
Shimmering, sparkling and solid colour lip glosses for the shade that suits you. The formula provides long-lasting wear without being sticky and they are all infused with an irresistible scent. A soft wand applicator ensures they glide on easily to the shape of your lips.

The Verdict
Shade 11 Coral is a very sheer, clear formulation. So sheer in fact that it's difficult to see where that bright pinky coral from the tube has gone once applied. Once on, it leaves you with glossy, very slightly pinky coral coloured lips but its probably best worn over a lipstick.

The tube itself looks pretty big but it's actually only a 2.5ml product, something which you can see if you look into the bottom end of the tube. The packaging feels quite basic and the doe foot applicator is practical, but a little stiff.


Studio light

With a nice glossy finish and sweet sugary scent, I can't help but think this one is aimed at the younger end of the market.

At £4.49, it's not the cheapest product around and I do think the packaging leads you to think that there is more product than there actually is. Overall, a basic lipgloss with minimal colour payoff that's probably better for paler skins.
