Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 lipglosses which I’ve recently tried for the first time – Barry M Gloss Me Up Lipgloss 826 Party Starter and I Love… Tinted Moisture Balm Peach. And here’s what I think of these 2 lipglosses…
Barry M Gloss Me Up Lipgloss 826 Party Starter is a clear lipgloss with metallic silver micro shimmer. It looks like a full-on metallic gloss in the photo, but I can assure you that it’s not. It actually looks alright on my lips, but it has the most awful flavour – it’s like a ton of overly ripe strawberries mixed with another ton of sugar. I can’t get over the flavour. It’s too much. Because of this, I’ll bin this product. This was a gree gift with purchase.
Onto the I Love… Tinted Moisture Balm Peach! This lip balm has a fruity peach flavour. It’s natural and not over the top sweet. This is nice! However, the colour is simply ugly. It’s a washed-out pale salmon pink. And it’s not just a tint – the coverage is comparable to the coverage of a lipstick. This lip tint makes me look like I’m in the final stages of a fatal disease. I cannot imagine that anyone could get away with wearing such an awful lip colour. I’ve binned this one too! Since it was £1 only, I won’t complain.
Based on my experience, I’d recommend you give these awful lip products a wide berth. However, if you’re interested, Barry M Gloss Me Up Lipgloss 826 Party Starter is available at Superdrug (maybe elsewhere too, but I don’t know), and I Love… Tinted Moisture Balm Peach is available via online retailers.
