OOH, these are a wee bit different now, aren’t they? Barry M’s latest matte lip venture is of the metallic variety! The Matte Me Up Lip Kits come in three shades, and each one has a lip pencil and a liquid matte lipstick.

These are fun, and perfect for the summer. The matte look could be a wee bit harsh for sultry summer nights, but if it’s metallic …

It’s no secret…metallics have finally landed. Whether you’re after full lip coverage or accents of these daringly bold pigments, Barry M’s new Matte Me Up Metallic Lip Kits have you covered. My top tip for the summer is to forget tradition and pair bold statement eyes with a flawless metallic lip; why do one when you can do both? – Adam Burrell, Makeup Artist 

So, there are three shades to choose from – Allure, 24 Carat, and Prestige.

Allure is a gorgeous metallic pink, perfect for those who love a pink lip, but just want to ramp it up a bit for summer.

24 Carat is, of course, a beautiful bronze, liquid gold. Gild your lips, not guild your lips, as the press release mistakenly said!

Finally, there’s Prestige, a deep, berry, burgundy shade. I don’t love this one on me – I feel a little pale, but it’s perfect with a hint of tan, or on darker skintones.

So, each kit has a lip pencil, to apply first, and then the matte lipstick. Goes on easily, doesn’t dry the lips out, and is beautifully metallic, without being over the top bling!
