I bought this lipstick for 2 reasons: one, because I wanted to try out a British brand, and two, because I fell in love with the color. It is a very bright neon pink. It stood out amongst all the other colors. I only thought about how cool this color looked while buying it, and didn’t even think once about my skin tone. There are some lipsticks that shouldn’t even be looked at, forget about buying. But, what can I say, I’m a sucker for weird lip colors (weirdo!).
There is a shade to suit every occasion from soft, shimmering pastels to bold, vibrant colors. All Lip Paints have a soft, smooth texture that is packed full of natural moisturizers to help them glide on and stay comfortable to wear for hours

My take on Barry M Lip Paint # 62:
I was so excited when I got this lipstick, I couldn’t wait to try it on. And when I did try it on…. Well, just look at my second lip swatch below, you’ll get the idea. Let’s just say, even the praise “bride of Frankenstein” doesn’t cover it. This is straight up ‘Nicki Minaj’ gone out of control (And that’s saying something, because she’s already out of control).
The lipstick is very chalky, and hard to apply on the lips. It really did feel like I was applying pastels on my lips (kept in the freezer overnight kind of pastels). I had difficulty spreading it around my lips, I couldn’t get the shape of my lips right, because the lipstick wouldn’t apply smoothly.
If you guys haven’t already realized from my lip swatch below, this lipstick is SUPER pigmented. You could make 5 lipsticks from the pigments that they’ve put in this one. I tried dabbing this lipstick lightly on lips for a light stain, and it actually looked good. It reminded me of Priyanka Chopra lips in the movie Dostana (she had almost the same color lips on her entry scene).
This lipstick stays on for 4-5 hours, including meals. It’s very matte, so it does not rub off when you eat or play with your lips; it just sits there hugging your lips. Even though this lipstick is matte, my lips don’t dry out, they actually stay soft. It’s weightless; I don’t feel like I have anything on my lips. I really do mean it when I say this lipstick hugs your lips; it stays on like second skin without budging or transferring. Which is what I love! I wish all the lipstick would stay on my lips like this one: weightless, and matte.
Even though this is a crazy color (perfect for Halloween), I love the way this lipstick feels on my lips. It’s soft, and weightless, and stays on my lips like second skin. I would totally wear this lipstick by staining it on my lips lightly.
Pros of Barry M Lip Paint # 62:
- Feels weightless
- Long lasting
- Lips feel soft
- Doesn’t dry out lips, like most matte lipstick
- Cute packaging
Cons of Barry M Lip Paint # 62:
- Very hard to apply
- Not for Indian skin tone
- Not available in India
- Settles in to lines
It in the first picture, I have lightly (yes, lightly!) dabbed the lipstick on my lips for a soft color, and on the second picture I’ve applied the lipstick properly, and evenly (that’s the actually shade).
Would I buy Barry M Lip Paint # 62 again?
No matter how “wacked up” this shade is, I would totally buy this again. Actually I would like to buy all the crazy colors from this brand. I just love the pigment and the feel. I will somehow find a way to work this color.
