I am in LOVE with these lip pencils from Barry M!
Ok, so this is rather random, but…….. ages ago when watching the film Zoolander I noticed one of the characters, Katinka played by Milla Jovovich had a beautiful metalic red lip. From then on I tried to find a lip colour similar but couldn’t find one anywhere!
That is until I discovered Barry M’s Lip Lacquer Crayon. Retailing at just £4.99 I would say that is a BARGAIN!
They go on super creamy and really highly pigmented with a beautiful metallic shine. They are available in 5 colours, ranging from very light pink, to a deep red.
I would say my favourites are Scarlett Red and Party Pink!
They are definitely worth a buy and are great for personal use as well as for a make-up kit, GET YOURSELVES ONE OF THESE!
HOW TO APPLY BARRY M LIP LACQUER:
Make sure your lips are nice and conditioned before adding any colour. Use a scrub or an old toothbrush to remove any dry skin and then use your favourite colourless balm. I like to use Vaseline or Carmex.
Use a highlighter or a light coloured concealer to highlight the cupids bow and then blend outwards.
The best way to apply the pencil is not to actually pencil in the lips, but to use a brush. By using the pencil, it is difficult to create neat edges and is also common for the colour to bleed. My favourite lip brush is from Illamaqua £18.50, it gives beautiful definition and easy application. Well worth the investment!
Start by out lining your cupids bow then filling in outwards, making sure you go right to the edges of your mouth. For the bottom lip, start by outlining from the middle and then also filling outwards.
If you are not used to using a brush it may take a while to get used to but it is definitely worth it! It enables super neat lips every time making your look neat and clean. So have a go!
Barry M Lip Lacquer Pencils are available from Superdrug and on their website.
Hope you like these as much as I do!
