As the Kylie Jenner lip kits still seem to be ever popular other brands are jumping on the bandwagon. I was really pleased to see Barry M were releasing their own version and had to buy as soon as they came out. There are three Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit and I have been testing them all out.ย 

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit


All three lip kits come in identical packaging, a box with a lip liner and liquid lipstick inside. I really like the boxes as they are quite retro looking, eye catching and look great on my dressing table.

First up is Go To, a brown tone nude. From the packaging I did think this would be pale but was quite surprised at how dark it is! Even though it is darker than I was expecting it is a gorgeous nude shade.

The second Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit is Pose, a pink tone nude. Againย the packaging is a bit misleading as I did think this would be a darker shade than it is. This pale nude is a really pretty colour that is great for day or night looks. Again it dries down to a super matte finish really quickly.

The final Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit is Runway, a berry matte liquid lipstick. I knew I would love this is the one I knew I would love before it was even out of the packaging. No matter what the season I wear a berry lip as often as possible.

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit review

I really love all three shades of the lip kits. They are all easy to apply with pretty standard shape doe foot applicators. All three dry to a super matte finish really quickly. As liquid matte lipsticks they do feel slightly drying whilst on the lips but they aren’t too uncomfortable to wear all day….and they do all last all day with minimal touch ups needed. If I am being picky the lip liners aren’t as creamy as I would like them to be but they are not so dry they drag whilst applying either though. I would love to see Barry M adding more shades to this collection and I would definitely buy more.


You can pick the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit up from Superdrug, they are ยฃ6.99 each and currently on 3 for 2 offer.


Have you tried any of the Barry M Lip Kits yet? Which is your favourite shade?

  1. I have not tried these kits yet, but do love the colours in the post, they are colours I would happily wear. I am going to have to look out for these kits x

  2. I haven’t tried these lip kits but I really like all three of these shades. I do tend to try to stay away from matte finishes as they tend to be too drying for me, but I am seeing so many of these kits lately, I may have to try one out.

  3. I don’t wear lip products often so like the price! I also love the colours ๐Ÿ™‚ will have to give them a go when next in boots/superdrug. I love maxfactor lippies. They go on like gloss but can dry like lipstick x

  4. I haven’t tried a Barry M lip kit, to be honest I’ve not bought anything from Barry M since I was a teenager. It’s great that more brands are creating affordable lip kits x

  5. I love matte lipsticks and wear a lot of the MUA range. However I love the fact that these come with a lip liner too, and such a great price. I like the look of Runway the best x

    1. I’ve not tried the MUA ones, I’ll look out for them next time I’m shopping. Having the matching lipliner makes it so much easier, I can never decide what lip liner to match to what lipsticks!

  6. They look like great shades – love the darker one – Barry m is great as its such an affordable brand and they do really have some quality products!

    1. I’m a huge Barry M fan for those exact reasons. I’ve always found (most of) their products good quality for a great price.

    1. I have to say I’m not a Jenner / Kardashian fan either…I think we’re in the minority there though aren’t we!

  7. Matte formulas aren’t my favourite purely because of how they feel on my lips but I absolutely ADORE the look of them. These kits are fantastic because they give you that Kylie Jenner style product but without the high price tag and shipping costs!! xxx

    1. I’ve almost bought the Kylie Jenner kits a few times but the price and then shipping on top just makes them too expensive. Matte lipsticks are drying aren’t they. I always add a layer of lip balm before I apply then which makes them a bit more comfortable x

  8. Matte lipsticks, as the name implies, are not glossy but give a matte look to the lips. Although glossy lipsticks are trending, matte lipsticks are beneficial in many ways and a must try.

    1. Glossy lips are trending but I love how matte lipsticks look. It is such a different look to glossy.

  9. I love this brand for other makeup products but have yet to try the lip collection so may just have too after reading this review
