Barry M TMLP lipstick

Barry M are a brand that I've never really tried anything from other than their nail polish. To be honest, I never even look at the other stuff on the stand, so when I went to a recent event at Beauty Mart in Harvey Nichols and saw this lipstick, I was shocked to find out it was from Barry M!

TMLP is a 'magic' lipstick. A terrifying green colour in the tube, it magically changes colour on lips to a pink shade that's individual to the wearer. It reacts with the PH levels in your lips to adapt, and supposedly give you a colour perfect for you.

I was a bit dubious, but at £4.49, it wasn't going to be an expensive mistake if it went wrong!

The lipstick is really smooth and applies easily, and as it hits lips, you can start to see it change colour. The formula is totally non-drying, which I was suprised by, and yet, the colour lasts for ages!

Once applied, the colour develops fully in about 30 seconds. Mine seems to go quite bright, which I love, and somehow matches perfectly to my skin tone.

It also stains the lips, so even after a few hours, you're left with a gorgeous soft pink lip that doesn't go away (seriously, it doesn't come off; I had to use makeup remover!).

I'm so glad I took the plunge and bought this. I can see myself using it a lot over the summer for a daytime pop of colour.

Have you tried any Barry M lipsticks? Would you give this green one a go?
