Barry M Haul / Review

As some of you cuties now, I do love the high street brand , found in most boots and super drug stores. Barry M. I saw that they have a few new products that clearly needed to be tried and tested. I raised an eyebrow to the new lipstick liquid to matte kits. As you all know I adore a good liquid matte, so had to give that a whirl, while I was at it I picked up my normal Barry M make up items and thought why not throw together a haul/ review on them...
So lets check out the items and my over all thoughts on what I think of them.

A mission to find liquid to matt lipsticks- review

 Hey every one.
Todays post is a insight/ review on my mission to find some new liquid to matt finish Lipsticks. As some of you know I loved my Limecrime ones as much as I loved the product I didn't really like the company behind it. ( Drama and all. Dis all am saying.) So it has taken me months to track down and find something just as good or maybe even better!
One place I found thanks to the wonders of Instagram was a indie small brand called Make Up Monsters.  
What I soon found was the range of colours rivalled many companies in shades. Which took my interest as I was looking for more shades than just plain red and pink.


So many to pick from , Any way this wee store are is in America and Ship worldwide. A word of warning though this place sells out fast! Crazy fast- I was lucky to order 2 products one day and then the next day a other 2 as they did a restock each day and then had to await till the next one. ( April 25th.)  New shades are coming out and even gloss lippy products too. I already have got 4 more on order too!



Anyway my orders were the following products Nefarious, and Cherimoya . A darkish purple and a nude pink. The Colours are lovely and the texture of the products are light to wear. I found them very very long lasting, but you need to let them dry fully.  I did find the product seemed less gloopy than other brands who have tried ( and failed.)  On the liquid to Matt lipsticks.
I love the purple you can make it really dark if you layer it on and the pink is a sweet simple nude that is really cute.




The other 2 product shades where on the brown shade of things, Now I ordered my items 1 day apart and for some reason my 2nd parcel came a whole 2 weeks after my 1st one came- LOL!
What?
Thankfully they provide shipping and tracking on your orders. Also there was a 5-10 business delay due to the owner having a baby! Which is understandable. And every one who has been a customer seems to be a loyal one and every one says everything good about this place. The shades Talk dirty to me is a dark brow maybe a dupe for Salem from LC? It's very rich in colour and the other shade is a nude brown called Sedona a dupe for Cashmere?. All the colours need only one coat and apply very well. They are long lasting but would avoid oily stuff as it removed some of my dark brown lippy shade but not much.

Over all I really love my purchases and the products, I hope to buy many more of these in different shades. I do still like JSC liquid to matt but something is nice coming from a small company and they have more shades to pick form. They are some thing to check out if you like the matt finish.
Again these barely need a touch up , maybe a slight touch up is needed after food. And they are very rich in colour. The cost for one of these not inc shipping is around £9 and the shipping is about £7.
Which is a not bad price as your UK ones on in high street brands are around £3-5 and your high end ones are about £13. I would say these are high end products at a good price!

I give them a 10/10 rating cause the lady that runs the store is so nice and the products are just awesome. Do you like Liquid to Matts or the Matt finish lippys? Tell me the products you like in the comments.

Kawaii Make up~ Jeffree star cosmetics vs Limecrime

Hey every one todays post is a Kawaii Make up post on both Lime crime and the new Jeffree Star Comestics. I really wanted to test out the JSC ones when I spotted them on Instagram ( Follow me!) and saw the shades and product looking a lot like Lime crime.
I really wanted to get both Prom night - the pink shade and the Redrum  Velour liquid  lipsticks to match up and compare with Lime crime Red Velvet and Pink Velvet but the Redrum came in fast and out fast too! They also have a shade like lime crimes utopia , I'm Royalty but am happy with utopia and really do not wear purple on the lips much.
It was also finding Grave Yard Girl on youtube doing her videos on these products that confirmed I wanted to get them too. ( Thanks Bunny!)
Soo... lets check em outs!


Well just by looking at the products you can see that they differ in packaging, Lime crime being thinner and longer and JSC looking shorter and chunky.


The brushes look pretty much the same and apply the same way too. How ever the Jeffree star one seems to have a shorter end to hold on to which was a bit of a pain to use but hey ho-.
 I quite like the design of the packaging box - being pink and all with cute stars with little J's in them.



Here are some picture to see the difference in the products.
 I find the both dry the same and apply the same. I find that JSC is more lighter to wear on the lips and Limecrime is more heavy in feeling. both are not that sticky either. Most most of all is the diffrence in colour, Well there is not really much of a difference to me, the main one is the fact Prom night is more electric pink and slightly brighter. It might be me but I found the pink velvet is slightly darker.


Here on this photo is Lime crime on the top lip and JCS on the bottom, I do not think you could tell them apart unless some one pointed them out to you.

Overall- I love both products. I like the fact JSC is slightly cheaper than Limecrimes Velvet, But I highly doubt that JSC's ones will make me change my mind from buying the other Velvets, I look forward to Lime crimes Riot shade coming out at the end of the month and really would like it!
I have to say they are very much the same and I love them both equally!

Later's cuties

Keep it Kawaii!
