Review: Barry M Lip Lacquer Crayon.

In this post I am going to be reviewing a lip product. The product in question being Barry M's Lip Lacquer Crayons. I picked one of these up from Boots while browsing, it looked like an interesting product and I had never used anything like this on my lips so I thought why not!

I got my Crayon in shade Cherry Red. It can be sharpened and is a fat pencil so you will need a sharpener that has a big enough for hole for it which isn't too much of a hassle. For the price, I think it is a really good size and a little bit of this goes a long way so it will be a while before you have to sharpen it. The crayon is really pigmented, one or two coats and you are good to go. You can also build up the colour if you want to as it can appear more of a stain with a light application. The shape and size of the products allows for easy and precise application.

 The finish of this product is a shimmery, glossy one but it's not over the top. The feel of it on the lips sort of meets in the middle between a lipstick and a lip gloss. It feels creamy and moisturizing on the lips and not too heavy. The only slightly annoying thing about this crayon is the shimmer left behind when the colour itself fades. But this is not too big a deal and you can always just touch this up. The crayon will last for around 2-3 hours before fading which isn't too bad, I would recommend taking it with you anytime you go out with it on as if you want to maintain the bright colour it will be necessary to touch it up. However, it does fade to quite nicely to a sort of lipstain which could be topped off with a gloss and would look really pretty.

Overall, I really like the product. I think it is handy to carry around and take with you anywhere and because you can build the colour up, it can go with numerous looks. The colour itself is really beautiful and I think you are getting a really good amount of product for your money. As I said, I purchased mine from Boots and it retails there at £4.99. You can find it at stockists such as Boots and Superdrug or online on Barry M's own website.
