Barry M launched a whole load of new products in their Spring/Summer collection, and the Barry M Multitude Lip & Cheek Pen is one of many new products within their range.
In terms of drugstore brands, Barry M are a little boring to me, as they tended to launch new products infrequently, and kinda just focused on their Nail Paints.
However, I don’t know if they have a new creative team, or they’ve changed up their marketing plans, but all of their newer products are actually quite interesting, so I decided to buy a few products to try, and I have to say I’m impressed.
I’ve already shared a review of their new Barry M Heatwave Bronzers, but today I have the Barry M Multitude Lip & Cheek Pen to show you, which is available in three different shades, and they’re £4.99 each too. The three shades to choose from are;
- Dare Me
- Sweet Darling
- Honey Honey
“Designed to mix and match to create a look that’s perfect for you, the Barry M Multitude Lip & Cheek Pen is a handbag essential! Available in 3 shades, each pen has four stackable colours to suit your mood.
Choose a shade and apply directly to your cheeks and lips and blend to reveal a natural hint of colour or try mixing tones for your own customised look!”
The Barry M Multitude Lip & Cheek Pen is a plastic pen, with four little crayons, which stack and give me stackable pencil vibes. They’re not pushable like a stackable pencil, instead they screw into the base of each other.
You can’t sharpen them either, and they don’t twist up like most lip crayons, so the nib you see for each shade, is all you get for each shade.
Within the Barry M Multitude Lip & Cheek Pen in Dare Me, you get an intense berry, mauve pink, fuchsia pink and pinky coral shade, and they’re designed to be used both on the lips and on the cheeks.
Usually lip/cheek crayons tend to be on the sheerer side, and can be a little waxy, but I like that this particular stack (Dare Me) features both sheer and intense shades.
The deep intense berry and the bright fuchsia are opaque and stain the lips, which I didn’t expect, and the berry shade in particular looks very similar to MAC Rebel when swatched side by side. The other two shades within this stack are slightly sheerer, and also have a glossier finish too.
I personally wouldn’t wear any of these shades on the cheeks, especially after seeing how much they stain, but if you like a bold, vibrant pop of colour, for £4.99, they’d be a great option to try, and they don’t feel waxy at all.
