I love you all! Can I just say that here? If you didn’t know it before, let me make it clear – all this writing, taking and editing photos and everything else that goes along with blogging is all for you guys and it makes my heart sing when you leave me comments or ask me questions.
Days like today are better than ever. Days like today, when you guys teach me a thing or two – and that’s what we’re all here for, right? To learn from each other, inspire each other and support each other.
Why am I being so slushy and emotional? Because today’s post is all down to a reader (who wants to remain anonymous), who asked to me swatch a particular lipstick that she’d heard might suit her, but as she’s the same skin tone as me, she wanted to see how it looked (on me) before she went shopping.
It’s the Barry M Lipstick in Shade 150 and I absolutely love it! It’s almost the perfect drugstore dupe for my all-time favourite nude, Liar by Urban Decay; the Barry M offering might be slighter pinker, but it’s the perfect shade for a summery, bronzey glowy face, which is currently the only thing that’s being going on over here. Super creamy, it feels very moisturising but it lasts for ages and doesn’t bleed or feather, even when used without a lipliner.
At well under a fiver, it’s a perfect little payday treat if you’re looking for a natural looking nude that doesn’t wash you out.
