I don't mean this so much in terms of colour, because I think they have a fantastic range of shades. But more in terms of finish and consistency.
The four shades I currently have are 100 (Baby Pink), 101 (Marshmallow), 129 (Palest Lavender) and 146 (Dolly Pink).
100 is a gorgeous colour when swatched on my arm, but on the lips it makes me look like a clown. The problem with this lipstick is that the colour is far too opaque and the finish is quite matte/dry so it is hard to even apply lightly and blend to a sheerer effect.
101 is a pale nude, much like MAC's Creme D' Nude and Gosh Darling. Some have said it can appear somewhat chalky on the lips, which I do agree with, however I do think it can be sheered out. It's also nowhere near as dry as the 100, which I find hard to even move across my lips.
129 is a stunning colour and looks fantastic on cooler skintones. I love wearing this in the winter when everything looks quite grey - it certainly isn't a shade I feel I could pull off in summer. It's also lovely and creamy so really easy to apply.
146 is a gorgeous bright pink. It's not a shade I often wear as I'm more into pale pinks or nudes, but it can be sheered out. I would say it is probably the creamiest of the lipsticks.
It seems that perhaps the finish for one particular shade of lipstick may be different with each batch that is made, because I've seen many rave about the 100, however I find it insanely drying. Conversely I quite like the 101, which others have said is extremely drying.
What do you think of Barry M lipsticks?
