Barry M – Gelly Hi Shine Lips in Vega Review & Swatches



Barry M – Gelly Hi Shine Lips in Vega

Hi beautiful people,

I am really gearing up for my upcoming trip to Paris; I love beautiful places, where there is lot of art, museums and lot of fashion. We are staying at a beautiful hotel at the Champs Elysees where the big fashion hub starts from. I will share a post on that soon.

Anyhow, the cold weather calls for nice warm food, warm colors and I love dark colors for my lips. I have recently introduced myself to Barry M 😛 and what is better than nice Gelly lips from the Barry M range.

My take on Barry M Gelly Lips in Vega:

I love the look of the Gelly lips, I first saw the advertisement in Cosmo and had an instant desire to get it. Barry M also has nail paints in the same range. Since chubby sticks are really in these days, I love adding them to my vanity. There are 5 hot shades in Barry M range and I will come up with all of them slowly. 😀

I picked up the Vega shade as it complements the current weather; it is dark and warm and looks wintery. Now this shade is deceptive maybe, it looks like it will give a deep color and it will be useful only in the winters, but that is not true. It has sheer finish and only many swipes will give you a deep color. I like the fact that it can be used summers as well. This particular shade compliments my skin tone and definitely shows that you are wearing color on your lips.

The Gelly lips is moisturizing and does not dry my lips out, it has a light desirable scent which is ok for me. Now to the staying power; this is low especially if you are eating out. I recommend carrying the lipstick in your bag.

The look of the lipstick is decent, it is a thin stick and does not come along with a sharpener, and thankfully I have my color bar sharpener which I will be using when I need it.
